Ryo Sushi | Affordable and Tasty Omakase

Omakase at S$18. Huh, what? Excuse me? Sounds too good to be true, but it is – for the first 18 patrons of the day (limited opening special). After that, the prices are S$38, S$68 and S$98 respectively for the various levels of Omakase (dishes selected by the chef) sets offered at Ryo Sushi. I recently tried their S$38 course, which comes with edamame, seaweed salad, … Continue reading Ryo Sushi | Affordable and Tasty Omakase

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

My Little Tapas Bar, Club Street X The Entertainer

*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

Pince & Pints, Duxton Road

Lobster + mayonnaise. What’s there not to love about that combination? So when I heard there was a new (okay by now, not so new) place in town selling delicious toasted buttery rolls stuffed with the meat of a whole lobster, I was sold on the idea. Thankfully, so was Z, and to celebrate our 2nd year together, we visited Pince & Pints on a Monday … Continue reading Pince & Pints, Duxton Road

New Harbour Cafe and Bar, Tanjong Pagar

Do you like roast pork? If you do, you may want to pay a visit to New Harbour Cafe. The Hainanese Roast Pork ($16) is one of the best I’ve had in Singapore – tender, juicy meat with super crispy crackling and melt-in-your-mouth fat. Paired with their signature sweet black sauce and belachan, oh my goodness. It is a flavour explosion in your mouth. Another … Continue reading New Harbour Cafe and Bar, Tanjong Pagar

Group Therapy, Katong V and Duxton Road

I’ve visited Group Therapy at Katong V at least five times, and the one at Duxton a couple of times, but somehow never got around to writing a post on it. An ex-classmate of mine is one of the founders, and I initially visited the original branch at Duxton about 3 years back to try it out, show some support. But after they set up … Continue reading Group Therapy, Katong V and Duxton Road

La Maison Fatien, Duxton Road

This dimly lit, cosy little French restaurant is one of the newer additions to the charming Duxton area. Once dotted with somewhat dodgy looking pubs and KTVs, this area is increasingly seeing more chill out cafes and nice restaurants mushrooming along its narrow lanes and cobblestone streets. Cafes like Group Therapy, The Plain, and The Pigeonhole (along Craig Road), and restaurants like L’Entrecote, Pasta Brava, BROTH, … Continue reading La Maison Fatien, Duxton Road
