[New Outlet] Jamie’s Italian @ Forum Shopping Centre

Fans of Jamie’s home cooked Italian cuisine at Vivo City may rejoice as the second outlet at The Forum is now ready for business and they are dishing out popular favourites with a twist! Stepping into the restaurant, we were greeted by the friendly staff and swiftly ushered to our seats. The ambience was captivating…

Arossa Grill @ Scotts Square

When I was still working at Orchard, I made a point to note down valuable set lunches at places which would otherwise cost a few hundreds for dinners. Arossa Grill was one of them. Specialising in grills (obviously), all the grills are imported fresh from Australia. Similar to Salt Grill, the proteins are cooked simply, with few…

Pete’s Place @ Grand Hyatt Hotel

Hidden in the basement of Grand Hyatt Hotel, Pete’s Place is one of the oldest restaurants in Singapore. It may have been forgotten through these years; yet with the return of old-school restaurants, Pete’s Place has definitely made the mark. This is also where you can still find huge, hearty portions of authentic Italian food….

Don’t you just want to head down to a safe haven, away from your daily lives’ hassles? Well, Shelter in the Woods provide just that, literally, at Greenwood Avenue! You will not find run-of-the-mill dishes here, and pay attention rum lovers, they have many unique flavours that are all home-brewed, as well as an extensive…

Trattoria L’Operetta @ Tanjong Katong

Just a stone’s throw away from where I stay is Tanjong Katong Road, a stretch where many great restaurants can be found! My family loves going to the Italian restaurants here (there’re at least 3 along the same road) for an awesome and hearty meal, and the bonus is that no one will be judging…

Jamie’s Italian Singapore @ Vivocity

Jamie’s Italian has finally landed in Singapore after months of anticipation! After my dining experience at Jamie’s Italian in Oxford, I was more than delighted that his beautiful creations will be available locally. Not wanting to brave the (‘Singaporean’) queue, I called in advance only to find out in dismay that the next available booking…

Artistry @ Kampong Glam

Sometimes it’s a blessing when things do not go according to plan. I found this gem – a quiet enclave, perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons – after deciding not to queue at a popular brunch spot. We noticed many posters depicting modern and abstract illustrations of cities. These posters for sale, cost a few hundreds each. On the opposite end of the…

Buffet: Edge @ Pan Pacific Hotel

Pan Pacific Hotel has been given a new facelift this year. The pavillion structures at the lobby with surrounding water bodies creates a contemporary and funky vibe. 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…

Kuriya Dining @ Great World City

All these years, Kuriya has remained as one of my favourite Japanese restaurants in Singapore, and I feel that I just have to share this gem on my blog. Kuriya Dining is best known for their Kuriya Lunch Course which features the freshest, seasonal ingredients of the month (yep, menu is changed monthly). At $45/person,…

Ristorante Da Valentino

Tucked away in a corner of the shophouse in Bukit Timah is this gem that serves great, hearty Italian fare. The whole ambience created is that of a cosy, traditional Italian home, with a rustic charm to it. Middle-aged waiters clad in vests and bow-ties welcome their guests warmly and promptly introduce their special dishes…
