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

The Sushi Bar Dining | Delightful Aburi Kaisen Don

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

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

[Closed] 5 Little Bears, Far East Plaza

Ah Taiwanese food. Juicy fried chicken chops, silky smooth mee sua and fragrant beef noodle soup and more – gotta admit that there is some allure to the cuisine on offer. Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks brought us some of these, to be enjoyed while on-the-go. 5 Little Bears (I don’t really understand the name but I guess it’s as good as any) is now bringing … Continue reading [Closed] 5 Little Bears, Far East Plaza

&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

10 Scotts, Grand Hyatt Singapore

One Sunday afternoon in June last year, Z decided on the spur of the moment that we should go for a nice afternoon tea. And so I tried to book a spot at Tea Lounge (Regent) and Brasserie Les Saveurs (St Regis), but was unsuccessful. Searched around online and ended up with 10 Scotts at Grand Hyatt Singapore, since reviews seemed positive and they had seats available. And … Continue reading 10 Scotts, Grand Hyatt Singapore

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar, Wisma Orchard

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar at Wisma This year, I’ve been to Wisma Atria a few times for various reasons – eat teppanyaki, fix my Sony camera etc. And each time I pass by Koh Grill & Sushi Bar, the casual Japanese place within the mall food court, there’s always an insane queue. So of course that got me curious about it (we Singaporeans like to queue for the good … Continue reading Koh Grill & Sushi Bar, Wisma Orchard

Mouth Restaurant, Plaza Singapura

Heard from a friend that Mouth Restaurant does a great custard bun (or liu sha bao for the local folks), and so we decided to drop by for this one weekend afternoon. We reached around 2pm, and it seemed like people were almost done eating by then as the place wasn’t too packed. I was rather excited by the interesting colourful dumplings on the menu and … Continue reading Mouth Restaurant, Plaza Singapura

Brasserie Les Saveurs (High Tea), St Regis Hotel

Over the recent long weekend, Z and I visited the St Regis for what we had thought would be a nice, luxurious high tea. Well it did feel luxurious indeed, with the high ceilings, opulent furnishings of their Brasserie Les Saveurs restaurant and wonderful live tunes from the resident pianist. Absolutely beautiful ambience and a lovely place to sit back, relax and sip tea, but … Continue reading Brasserie Les Saveurs (High Tea), St Regis Hotel

Covelli Italian Bistro and Winebar, Orchard Central (Closed)

Lovely, lovely Covelli. A quiet, unassuming Italian restaurant in the basement of Orchard Central, Covelli Italian Bistro and Winebar isn’t a place that would immediately strike a passerby as popular or particularly well-liked by the masses. However its contemporary classy ambience and décor drew me to it as I walked by, and lingered in my mind. When I discovered that this restaurant was part of the Palate … Continue reading Covelli Italian Bistro and Winebar, Orchard Central (Closed)
