Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting a skilled (and friendly) barista who has over 10 years of experience in coffee, at the Food&HotelAsia2016 mega trade show. I never really thought about it, but there are actually a bazillion (maybe a slight exaggeration there) factors to consider in roasting quality coffee beans and brewing a cup of fragrant, wonderful tasting coffee – like the duration of … Continue reading Video | Wake Up and Smell the Coffee
Okay so I know it’s March already, but hey, I can still write about food trends which I think will take off over the course of this year right? For many of us, food is something that we love with our hearts and souls, and is a space where there are constant innovations to create better options and varieties for people to enjoy. Here are some … Continue reading All About Food! Trends in 2016?
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
About 2 years ago, I worked in the Alexandra area for around 1.5 years. Being someone who loves food with a burning passion, I made sure to explore the area to sniff out the good eats to enjoy during lunch time. Here are some places which I liked around the Alexandra Village / Bukit Merah area (will probably do the Pasir Panjang / Harbourfront side some other time, there are … Continue reading Some Yummy Food Places Around Alexandra
Hi everyone! So this is not a full out blog post on my recent trip to Ubud in Bali, but I just wanted to write a quick update that… I’m back! And that Ubud is truly a wonderful, peaceful place that one can easily spend 2 weeks in. I went there on a solo trip with the intention of getting away and devoting some time … Continue reading I’m back from Bali!
I never really liked salads before. The idea of eating a bunch of green, healthy tasting stuff was not particularly appealing to me. Only when I decided that I must try to lose some weight/fat and get leaner/more muscular, that I began eating salads 2 to 3 times a week, sometimes more or less, depending on how soon a salsa performance was coming up. And … Continue reading The Daily Cut | Knows How to Serve A Satisfying Salad
I first noticed this cafe when I walked past Big Hotel on Middle Road. Covering most of the basement floor, next to a reduced-size hotel lobby, the spacious Froth with its white walls and warm lighting looked like a cosy place to hang out. Pleased about discovering a new place around the studio to eat at, I proceeded to look it up online for some … Continue reading Froth Cafe | New Cafe at Middle Road Underwhelming
Another Japanese restaurant! Singapore is seriously full of them. Well… I guess high demand, high supply, hence the many places offering cuisine from the land of the rising sun. The Sushi Bar is one such place. This small but popular shop has been satisfying consumers with affordable, neatly arranged sushi rolls, fresh chirashi dons and sushi at Far East Plaza since 2012, with long lines clamouring … Continue reading The Sushi Bar Dining | Delightful Aburi Kaisen Don
I love receiving parcels. The anticipation of something new, the thrill of having it in your hands and tearing open (or lovingly unwrapping, if you prefer) the packaging to reveal what is within, is quite a unique experience. So when my first Boxgreen arrived, I was all abound with excitement – not knowing what this little brown box would yield. Boxgreen aims to be a one-stop … Continue reading Boxgreen, Wholesome Snacks Delivered to Your Doorstep
*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
If there was an award for most beautiful, delicate and exquisite Barachirashi Don, I would give it to the one from Sushi Sho in Tokyo, Japan. On a recent holiday to Tokyo, I decided to run around on my own looking for delicious food in the city, after having done some research online. One of my lunches on this trip was the Barachirashi Don (2,000 yen … Continue reading Sushi Sho, Tokyo
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)
