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.

Hailing from Hong Kong but named after a small town in Australia (Woolloomooloo), this stylish … Continue reading Wooloomooloo Steakhouse, Swissotel/Raffles City

Being a restaurant that is rated as one of the Top 100 in the world, this is not surprising. And because of this and also my friend’s review of its reasonably priced, good quality lunch set at Chubby Hubby, the boyfriend (henceforth dubbed as Z) and … Continue reading Gunther’s Modern French Cuisine, Purvis Street
