Redpan | A Fresh Spin on Local Favourites

A cafe/restaurant by an architectural firm… sounds like it’d be visually stunning with beautiful but pretentious (and not very tasty food), right? Well, not quite. redpan (if you stare at the middle closely enough you’ll see why it’s named as such) is a collaboration between DP Architects and GRUB, a culinary company advocating modern local food. And besides being a rather aesthetically pleasing place, it … Continue reading Redpan | A Fresh Spin on Local Favourites

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

Ô Comptoir | Not Amazing But Kind Of Pleasing

A galette? What’s that, you might ask? Honestly, before I accidentally stumbled across a creperie in Belgium that served this, I had no idea as well. The galette is a type of French crusty cake, but the one more commonly seen in restaurants and such is the Breton galette, a buckwheat flour open faced pancake with savoury fillings. Apparently crêpes refer to the sweet ones … Continue reading Ô Comptoir | Not Amazing But Kind Of Pleasing

Vincents | Deserving of ‘Top Restaurant in Riga’ Rating

When I saw first saw this restaurant on Tripadvisor, I thought ‘Man, it’s a bit far out from the old town of Riga (where we were staying)’, and so I wasn’t sure if we should pay it a visit. However after further discussions with my travel mates and some planning of our sightseeing such that it could factor in nicely into our route, we decided … Continue reading Vincents | Deserving of ‘Top Restaurant in Riga’ Rating

My Little Tapas Bar, Club Street X The Entertainer

*This was an invited food tasting session. The narrow lanes of Club Street and Ann Siang have long housed charming little bars, eateries and shops offering quaint curated goods and services. A little over a year ago, My Little Tapas Bar (MLTB), with its authentic Spanish tapas and cocktails concept, joined their folds. Part of the My Little Spanish Place group, with the opening of the new Boat Quay … Continue reading My Little Tapas Bar, Club Street X The Entertainer

The Betterfield, Waterloo Centre (MOVED)

Cafe, bistro, eatery – it’s hard to tell the difference sometimes. But frankly, does it really matter what it is? As long as the food is good, the ambience, prices and service are decent, I’m happy. The Betterfield is a new cafe/bistro that recently opened almost literally next door to Mosaic Dance, the studio at which I teach salsa. So you can imagine it has … Continue reading The Betterfield, Waterloo Centre (MOVED)

Tanuki Raw, Orchard Central

A fun, quirky restobar with great Happy Hour promotions, Tanuki Raw adds a shot of life and colour to the otherwise quiet Orchard Central. Though in recent times the building has seen many new additions to its food and beverage establishments, so perhaps it is not really as sleepy as it used to be. But anyway, I digress. Recently, I visited Tanuki Raw with some girl … Continue reading Tanuki Raw, Orchard Central

Lime, Parkroyal at Pickering

Can I just say one thing first – Parkroyal at Pickering’s pool area is SO pretty! Lovely cage-like structures scattered within an infinity pool, against a backdrop of a lovely cityscape. But okay, what this post is really about is the open-concept kitchen restaurant at the hotel, Lime. Lime offers both a-la-carte and daily lunch and dinner buffet spreads, and the latter was what we went … Continue reading Lime, Parkroyal at Pickering

Bruno’s Bistrot, Telok Kurau

This place is perfect for people who like hearty, delicious food served in an unpretentious way. Our recent visit for dinner was a really enjoyable experience for Z. For me, as long as it tastes good I’m mostly happy – and boy, did the food at Bruno’s impress and satisfy. I had been to Bruno’s first branch, Bruno’s Pizzeria & Grill some years back and … Continue reading Bruno’s Bistrot, Telok Kurau

Pince & Pints, Duxton Road

Lobster + mayonnaise. What’s there not to love about that combination? So when I heard there was a new (okay by now, not so new) place in town selling delicious toasted buttery rolls stuffed with the meat of a whole lobster, I was sold on the idea. Thankfully, so was Z, and to celebrate our 2nd year together, we visited Pince & Pints on a Monday … Continue reading Pince & Pints, Duxton Road

&Made Burger Bistro, Pacific Plaza

Since I heard about this gourmet burger bistro in Singapore set up by Bruno Menard, a three Michelin starred chef Bruno Menard in late 2012, I’ve been meaning to pay it a visit but somehow never got the chance. Finally popped by for some burgers and truffle fries recently (with a Palate discount yay) and quite liked what I had. Was kind of hungry so didn’t … Continue reading &Made Burger Bistro, Pacific Plaza
