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

田 Magic Square | Sustainable, Artistic Food

After a meal at this place, my first thought was ‘wow, what an apt name for this one year long pop-up restaurant’. Because the food truly feels like magic – how the flavours and ingredients blended together seamlessly to give my palate a wonderful time. We experienced the August menu, a 9-course creation by the youngest chef of the lot – Desmond Shen. The menu … Continue reading 田 Magic Square | Sustainable, Artistic Food

TP Tea | Popular Taiwan Tea Comes to Singapore

TP TEA (茶汤会), a tea brand from Taiwan with around 30 years of experience and expertise in preparing tea, has opened in Singapore as of 27 June 2018! This company doesn’t just brew and blend, but also handles the process of selecting the tea leaves.

What’s Your Beef? | A Rundown of 11 Gyudons in Singapore

I recently realised that I’ve actually consumed an alarming amount of beef bowls over some time, and so my immediate response to that was ‘Hey! I should do a blog post about it’ (sorry cows…). And so here is my little comparison post of 11 different types of beef bowls you can find in Singapore, from the everyday pocket friendly ones to the occasional indulgence. … Continue reading What’s Your Beef? | A Rundown of 11 Gyudons in Singapore

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

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

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?

A Skip and A Hop Through Adelaide’s Cafes

Last month, I had around 3 days to spend wandering around Adelaide and so decided to visit some of the cafes on offer in this quiet, chill city. Most of the cafes only open till around 4.00pm on weekdays though so it is a good idea to go early. Quite a few are closed on Sundays too. My general thoughts on the cafe scene in … Continue reading A Skip and A Hop Through Adelaide’s Cafes

The Sweet Potato Fries Showdown

What’s better than potatoes? Sweet potatoes! I don’t even want to go into why that is better. But seriously, sweet potatoes are packed full of wonderful nutrients like Vitamin A and beta-carotene (a purportedly powerful antioxidant). I never liked sweet potatoes when I was young, but ever since I tried sweet potato FRIES, mash ant other wonderful variations, I’ve done a 360 and fell totally in love with … Continue reading The Sweet Potato Fries Showdown
