FOC Restaurant @ Hong Kong Street

My meal of FOC Restaurant happened when it was in its second week of opening, so this post is long overdue. That said, I’ve continually heard great reviews of FOC, so time for you to read this review and see which dishes are worth the trip down! Just for formalities, FOC is the brainchild of Michelin-starred chef…

Akanoya Robotayaki Restaurant @ Orchard Parade Hotel

A world apart from its sister restaurant, Akashi Sushi, Akanoya Robotayaki serves authentic and unique Robotayaki cuisine, where for a few hours, diners are transported to Japan. Reservations in advance is a must here as the restaurant is bustling full every night! As it gets later into the night, the whole atmosphere transforms and the…

Terrassa by Ginza Project @ St. Petersburg [Russia Trip]

If you’re in Russia, you definitely have to try at least one of the many restaurants under the management of Ginza Project, a leading group in the restaurant and entertainment industry.

Palkin Restaurant @ St. Petersburg [Russia Trip]

Palkin is one of the oldest restaurant establishments in St. Petersburg which has retained its original name and location since 1874, along the bustling road called Nevsky Prospect.

Clifford @ Fullerton Bay Hotel

Aptly named, Clifford boasts floor-to-ceiling glass windows, overlooking the Clifford Pier. By dusk, the scenery is likened to an ever-changing ombre sky, with a darker shade of blue painted across it at regular intervals. The entire atmosphere felt like it was created out of a fairy-tale book yet at the same time, unpretentious. I was in…

Oceans of Seafood @ PasarBella, The Grandstand

I found a real gem at the back of PasarBella where the freshest seafood are found! If you haven’t heard, PasarBella is a farmer’s market at The Grandstand, occupying a huge corner at the back of the main building, beside Giant supermarket. Upon entry, it feels as though you’ve been transported to a London weekend market. The vicinity has…

Mad for Garlic @ Clarke Quay

If there ever was a Dracula apocalypse, this is the place to seek cover at! Strings and strings of garlics are hung across ceilings and ledges, they keep garlic-haters at bay too, I’m sure. Originated in Korea, Mad for Garlic serves innovative garlic-specialised Italian cuisine, promised to change your biased views about this healthy albeit…

Tanuki Raw @ Orchard Central

My expectation forTanuki Raw was exceptionally high after I saw a really long queue snaking towards the escalator on a weekday night. I vouched to come back here again soon but to my surprise, when I was there on a Saturday afternoon, there wasn’t a single soul [excluding staff] at nearly 1. That should have been…

I am very excited to share with you the hotel’s buffet restaurant called Edge, which has a very apt tagline: Food Theatre. Edge takes up a massive floorspace on Level…

Buffet: Lime @ Park Royal, Pickering

This blogpost is wayy overdue as I’ve visited Lime 2 months ago when they were still having a UOB card promotion whereby the 3rd diner dines free with every 2 paying adults. I did a quick check on the UOB privileges site and it’s no longer listed. 😦 So, the usual price for buffet dinner…

The only Chinese restaurant at Gardens by the Bay, Majestic Bay is opened by the same group behind Jing at One Fullerton.

I was here however, for Sunday dimsum brunch! Very…
