Sushiro | Good Value Bara Chirashi Don in the North of Singapore

*UPDATE: This restaurant has now renamed to Omoté Singapore. Everyone has probably heard of Sushiro by now, with many people touting it as the ‘cheapest bara chirashi don in Singapore’. Or, one of the cheapest at least. At $12.80 for a seemingly generous serving of chunky cubes of raw fish on rice, it’s pretty good value. I, being the greedy girl I am, went straight … Continue reading Sushiro | Good Value Bara Chirashi Don in the North of Singapore

Humble Rays | A Shining Light In Melbourne’s Cafe Culture

When I said I was going to Melbourne, nearly everyone said ‘you MUST go to Hardware Societe’. And so I did – but along the way, I also discovered another wonderful cafe by serendipity (via a friend’s post on Instagram), which I feel I must blog about first. And that cafe is Humble Rays. Located just about a 5 minute walk (maybe 10, if you … Continue reading Humble Rays | A Shining Light In Melbourne’s Cafe Culture

Endless Crab Party Buffet | Parkroyal at Kitchener Road

I LOVE crabs. Their tender flesh and sweet succulent taste of the sea, is something so delightful, so beautiful. And it pleases, it does. Well, for me anyway, at least. So a crab buffet where I can taste a wide plethora of crabs cooked many different ways really sounded fantastic to me.  And off I went to the Endless Crab Party Buffet at Spice Brasserie, … Continue reading Endless Crab Party Buffet | Parkroyal at Kitchener Road

The Malayan Council | Bustling Halal Mod-Sin Cafe

Who says cafes only have to serve eggs and coffee? The Malayan Council is destroying all notions of a ‘typical’ cafe, with their tasty Western-local fusion creations and mind blowing cakes and desserts. The cafe/restaurant though relatively small, is doing really well (completely packed on a Thursday night), so reservations are recommended. The person at the reservation phone (who I think is the owner) didn’t … Continue reading The Malayan Council | Bustling Halal Mod-Sin Cafe

Boruto | Cozy Modern Izakaya With Brilliant Food

These Japanese-Western fusion izakayas seem to be popping up everywhere. I’m not complaining though – with a sudden influx of fatty, oily beef mixed with rich ingredients like foie gras and/or sea urchin and poached eggs in the scene, there is simply more to enjoy, more to choose from. Boruto is one such izakaya, which I first visited because of a ridiculously delicious looking truffled … Continue reading Boruto | Cozy Modern Izakaya With Brilliant Food

Ryo Sushi | Affordable and Tasty Omakase

Omakase at S$18. Huh, what? Excuse me? Sounds too good to be true, but it is – for the first 18 patrons of the day (limited opening special). After that, the prices are S$38, S$68 and S$98 respectively for the various levels of Omakase (dishes selected by the chef) sets offered at Ryo Sushi. I recently tried their S$38 course, which comes with edamame, seaweed salad, … Continue reading Ryo Sushi | Affordable and Tasty Omakase

Grain Traders | My New Absolute Favourite Place For Lunch

I am besotted. Sorry The Daily Cut, I have a new love now in terms of lunch places. The name of my current beloved is Grain Traders, a fairly new ‘slow food real fast’ eatery in the CBD that serves up awesome, healthy warm meals you can mix-and-match to your heart’s desire. At S$16 per bowl it does seem a little more on the pricey … Continue reading Grain Traders | My New Absolute Favourite Place For Lunch

Sheng Jian Bao | The Lovechild of Xiao Long Bao and Guo Tie

If you’ve been to Shanghai and not had a taste of their legendary sheng jian baos, I would say – you’ve totally missed out. Go and book a ticket back there right this instance. Ok, I’m kidding (just a little). Admittedly, I’ve mainly only tried these mystical sheng jian baos from one key brand (and some other shop that is more famous for its jian … Continue reading Sheng Jian Bao | The Lovechild of Xiao Long Bao and Guo Tie

Clinton St. Baking Company | Breakfast the American Way

Been a little busy with a new project recently so haven’t had much time to write, but wanted to share quickly about a cafe which I had been to twice this year – Clinton Street Baking Company at Purvis Street. Was most recently there about a month ago, when I finally got a taste of their popular Fried Chicken and Waffle (S$21++). Let’s just say I … Continue reading Clinton St. Baking Company | Breakfast the American Way

La Ristrettos | A Surprise Find In A Place of Healing

Upon entering La Ristrettos, one is suddenly transported from the white, clinical corridors of the Novena Medical Centre into a warm, cosy café full of brown furnishings, quaint wall decorations and tasteful flower arrangement pieces. The large window panes on one side of the café with a mix of white lace and gingham curtain adornments, the backdrop for a high table seating area, struck me as rather … Continue reading La Ristrettos | A Surprise Find In A Place of Healing

Suprette | Is it the Best Burger In Town?

I’m not sure if Suprette does the best burger in town, but it sure serves up a pretty damn awesome one. Their Suprette Burger (S$25 for the basic one not including add-ons) features a juicy, moist minced beef patty that was full of flavour and rested gently between a fluffy buttered and toasted-to-a-lovely-crisp bun. I really liked how the elements of their burgers come together … Continue reading Suprette | Is it the Best Burger In Town?
