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

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

The Daily Cut | Knows How to Serve A Satisfying Salad

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

Absinthe Restaurant Français, Boat Quay

The brainchild of four friends from Europe, Absinthe is a popular French restaurant which has been in Singapore for already around five years or so. Before moving to its new home along the bright, lively streets of Boat Quay, it first blossomed in the restaurant enclave of Bukit Pasoh, along with the now long standing Oso Ristorante. Before visiting it for dinner a few months ago to celebrate an … Continue reading Absinthe Restaurant Français, Boat Quay

Paradise Pavilion, Marina Bay Financial Centre / Link Mall

And now it is time for yet another review of a Paradise Group eatery! This time, the establishment in question is the classy Paradise Pavilion, a restaurant decked out in French-Baroque inspired design, catering more towards the high end. I visited this place recently for both lunch and dinner, so will combine my thoughts on both experiences into one post. Did I think that Paradise … Continue reading Paradise Pavilion, Marina Bay Financial Centre / Link Mall

Si Chuan Dou Hua, Top of UOB Plaza

Si Chuan Dou Hua has been at the top of UOB Plaza since 2002, but I only heard about it sometime this year through some food blog posts and Instagram pictures that were going around. Sentiments seemed pretty positive and so I proposed to try this place for a recent dim sum excursion with friends. The restaurant is on the 60th storey and offers a great view … Continue reading Si Chuan Dou Hua, Top of UOB Plaza

TODAI, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands

I was recently invited to a tasting session at TODAI, an international all-you-can-eat buffet chain restaurant (the website says it originates from North America, but they have many branches in Korea – the Singapore branch is apparently partly handled by the Korean office) located at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, and totally jumped at the chance. You see, I love buffets, and the many … Continue reading TODAI, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands
