East 8 New York Fusion Tapas + Bar @ Grand Park City Hotel

More and more, we see the concepts of tapas and fusion food colliding and East 8 is the epitome of it. When you step into the restaurant, you’ll hear a playlist of Korean songs and gorgeous covers of chart-toppers (the playlist was so awesome that we had to enquire about it after dinner)! It’s interesting that…

Olive Tree Buffet Restaurant @ Intercontinental Hotel Singapore

Olive Tree Buffet Restaurant has been around for as long as I could remember. I was too excited to start attacking the food that I’ve missed out on taking photos of the environment. Located within Hotel Intercontinental, there is a light-well in the middle of the restaurant, with some influence of colonial times in its interior-architectural…

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. It has since expanded to other metropolis including London and New York. I was looking through the list of restaurants and I was really…

Otto Locanda @ Maxwell Chambers

A sister restaurant of Otto Ristorante, Otto Locanda serves up some hearty, trattoria-style dishes. It is located adjacent to the Red Dot building, at the pristine white Maxwell Chamber, directly opposite Tanjong Pagar MRT. This circular dining area at Otto Locanda made me feel as though I was dining in a lighthouse! I really love…

Prego @ Fairmount Hotel

Prego has been around for almost two decades or more and its decor has not changed since I was here as a kid. It used to be a popular Italian restaurant back in those days when choices were limited. I was surprised that it was nearly full house on a Wednesday night when I visited….

Spathe Public House @ Mohamed Sultan

If you’ve noticed, Spanish cuisine seems set to become increasingly mainstream and popular with more and more tapas restaurants joining the scene. One thing I like about Spanish food is that you can have an endless unique creation of tapas and you seldom find identical flavours/tapas between 2 restaurants/tapas bars. Inside Spathe, it feels like you’ve been transported to another…

Kilo at Pact @ Orchard Central

Orchard Central has many well-hidden gems that require certain amount of sheer luck to uncover. Located within a retail shop is Kilo at Pact that serves fusion food.  Concrete bar tables with wooden chairs and a centerpiece of cacti – elements of nature blended with urban ones. The right picture shows the logo of Kilo…

SkyLoft Rooftop Bar & Restaurant @ Sentosa

SkyLoft is situated just above where iFly is at! The entire floorspace on the 5th level is dedicated to the bar and restaurant, overlooking the sea and sunset. A chic main dining area in front of the bar. A beautiful and tranquil alfresco setting for a perfect night-out. Behind this area is a sheltered al-fresco…

LaBrezza @ The St. Regis Hotel

LaBrezza is a Trattoria-style Italian restaurant at The St. Regis Singapore. Located on the second floor overlooking the pool, LaBrezza has an open al-fresco dining concept, with some air-con blasting in the main dining area. As compared to St. Regis’ French Restaurant, Brasserie Les Saveurs, LaBrezza is definitely more laid-back and family-oriented. This would be perfect…

I had chosen to dine at Gaia during Restaurant Week after reading all the good reviews about it!

Gaia is a very spacious restaurant and bar, divided into different spaces, with a choice of outdoor seating…
