With the recent news of the Singapore-South Korea Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) arrangements, there has been talk of travel once again – and I for one am pretty excited. I thought about the ridiculous number of Korea trips I took across end 2017 to end 2019 and realised that I went there a whopping 7 times (I know, I’m crazy 나는 미친 야~). Not showing … Continue reading 10 Things to Eat in Korea That Aren’t Your Basic Army Stew

Lady Wu | A Bar With Pretty Fabulous Food

One usually doesn’t expect the food at a bar to be particularly good, but Lady Wu surprised me with its simple yet inventive fusion dishes. Not only was the food delightful, the place had fun and chill neon vibes, that our party of five enjoyed imbibing in. First off, one of the highlight dishes for me was the Wagyu Beef Cubes (S$18++), a classic dish … Continue reading Lady Wu | A Bar With Pretty Fabulous Food

Simplicité | A Modern European Cafe by Fresh Fruits Lab

Fresh Fruits Lab used to be a fun, brightly coloured neighbourhood cafe back in the day, which recently decided to rebrand and launch itself as a classy, modern European one named Simplicité. It’s really got a Parisian feel now, with their big glass windows, blue and white chairs reminsicent of a French bistro, and vintage finishings. I did rather like the vibes, and even more … Continue reading Simplicité | A Modern European Cafe by Fresh Fruits Lab

Salted and Hung | Sustainable Contemporary Australian Cuisine

I’m glad, that one of the last meals I ate at a restaurant before the heightened measures kicked in in May was at Salted and Hung. We had lunch there to celebrate a friend’s birthday and tried their tasting menus (they only serve that when you dine there, but no complaints about that). I took the 5-course option (S$78++), which started with a light starter … Continue reading Salted and Hung | Sustainable Contemporary Australian Cuisine

s t e e p | Cosy Mod-Aesthetic Cafe

I was pretty excited about this new cafe in the Jalan Besar area (I know, another one?!), because of the first look shots of its stylish, monochromatic interior and vibrant, appetizing dishes circulating on Instagram in early April. And since I kind of hang out in this area quite a bit, I just had to find an opportunity to pop by for a visit (or … Continue reading s t e e p | Cosy Mod-Aesthetic Cafe

Burnt Ends | High-End Barbecued Food

A reservation at Burnt Ends is notoriously hard to get, so when a friend offered up hers to a group of friends to take, I jumped at the chance to visit this Michelin-starred restaurant. Nevermind that a meal there could cost me a few hundred dollars. It’s a ‘once in a while’ thing, I convinced myself. Many courses of the ‘Chef’s Selection’ experience and a … Continue reading Burnt Ends | High-End Barbecued Food

5 Places To Get Good Pastries in Singapore

What’s your favourite type of bread? Mine’s the ‘croissant’ (pronounced as ‘kwah-son’). Who can resist those delicious pillowy, flaky layers of buttery, crisp yet chewy bread… well, people with more willpower than me, that’s for sure. Besides (various types and flavours of) croissants, I do enjoy most of the other similar breads in the Viennoiserie (or sometimes more loosely termed as pastries) family as well … Continue reading 5 Places To Get Good Pastries in Singapore

Walking on Sunshine | Korean Garden Cafe in Singapore

When I first stepped into Walking on Sunshine, I felt like I was transported into another world. They sure put in effort to make sure that the whole place felt like a lovely nature setting, but with just one difference – air conditioning, as this cafe is situated in a mall, along Orchard Road no less! The concept of this place is kind of a … Continue reading Walking on Sunshine | Korean Garden Cafe in Singapore

Olivia | Fine Flavours of Spain

Since Olivia’s Burnt Cheesecake burst all over Instagram a couple of years ago, I was captivated by it and knew I had to visit this place someday. And I finally did, earlier this year for my birthday, thanks to some lovely friends. Upon entering the classy restaurant with warm, welcoming vibes, waiters swarmed us asking if we wanted still or sparkling, and kind of decided … Continue reading Olivia | Fine Flavours of Spain
