Charcoal-Grill and Salad Bar Keisuke | Delightful Mains and Free Flow Salad

I can’t even begin to explain how wonderful grilled fish is. When I try to imagine the flavours of the fish slowly being brought out in the heating process, its soft flesh sizzling, my mouth starts to water. So when I heard that Keisuke Takeda’s 19th restaurant (yes you read that right) specialises in authentic Japanese-style grilled fish ‘sumiyaki’ AND also has a free flow … Continue reading Charcoal-Grill and Salad Bar Keisuke | Delightful Mains and Free Flow Salad

Five 1-day Must Do Itineraries in Tai-rrific Taipei!

Ahh, Taipei. A place I’ve been to 7 times already yet feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface of what there is to explore. I first visited this city on a family trip about 5 years ago and thereafter went on 4 dancing/eating trips, a weekend trip and a work trip. And based on these visits, I’ve put together five 1-day itineraries of my top … Continue reading Five 1-day Must Do Itineraries in Tai-rrific Taipei!

Redpan | A Fresh Spin on Local Favourites

A cafe/restaurant by an architectural firm… sounds like it’d be visually stunning with beautiful but pretentious (and not very tasty food), right? Well, not quite. redpan (if you stare at the middle closely enough you’ll see why it’s named as such) is a collaboration between DP Architects and GRUB, a culinary company advocating modern local food. And besides being a rather aesthetically pleasing place, it … Continue reading Redpan | A Fresh Spin on Local Favourites

田 Magic Square | Sustainable, Artistic Food

After a meal at this place, my first thought was ‘wow, what an apt name for this one year long pop-up restaurant’. Because the food truly feels like magic – how the flavours and ingredients blended together seamlessly to give my palate a wonderful time. We experienced the August menu, a 9-course creation by the youngest chef of the lot – Desmond Shen. The menu … Continue reading 田 Magic Square | Sustainable, Artistic Food

TP Tea | Popular Taiwan Tea Comes to Singapore

TP TEA (茶汤会), a tea brand from Taiwan with around 30 years of experience and expertise in preparing tea, has opened in Singapore as of 27 June 2018! This company doesn’t just brew and blend, but also handles the process of selecting the tea leaves. Curious as to what the fuss was about, I and some colleagues who are closet (and a couple not-so-closet) bubble tea lovers, decided to … Continue reading TP Tea | Popular Taiwan Tea Comes to Singapore

What’s Your Beef? | A Rundown of 11 Gyudons in Singapore

I recently realised that I’ve actually consumed an alarming amount of beef bowls over some time, and so my immediate response to that was ‘Hey! I should do a blog post about it’ (sorry cows…). And so here is my little comparison post of 11 different types of beef bowls you can find in Singapore, from the everyday pocket friendly ones to the occasional indulgence. … Continue reading What’s Your Beef? | A Rundown of 11 Gyudons in Singapore

[Closed] Fynn’s | Stunning Modern Australian Cafe in Singapore

I’m usually the sort of person who delights in richness and quantity when it comes to food. For example, I love having meals with lots of thick, tasty sauce or big chunks of succulent meats. Fynn’s was pretty much the opposite of this, and it surprised me to realise that I actually very much enjoyed its clean flavours, plating and delicate touch. The eight dishes … Continue reading [Closed] Fynn’s | Stunning Modern Australian Cafe in Singapore

Sushiro | Good Value Bara Chirashi Don in the North of Singapore

*UPDATE: This restaurant has now renamed to Omoté Singapore. Everyone has probably heard of Sushiro by now, with many people touting it as the ‘cheapest bara chirashi don in Singapore’. Or, one of the cheapest at least. At $12.80 for a seemingly generous serving of chunky cubes of raw fish on rice, it’s pretty good value. I, being the greedy girl I am, went straight … Continue reading Sushiro | Good Value Bara Chirashi Don in the North of Singapore

Humble Rays | A Shining Light In Melbourne’s Cafe Culture

When I said I was going to Melbourne, nearly everyone said ‘you MUST go to Hardware Societe’. And so I did – but along the way, I also discovered another wonderful cafe by serendipity (via a friend’s post on Instagram), which I feel I must blog about first. And that cafe is Humble Rays. Located just about a 5 minute walk (maybe 10, if you … Continue reading Humble Rays | A Shining Light In Melbourne’s Cafe Culture

Endless Crab Party Buffet | Parkroyal at Kitchener Road

I LOVE crabs. Their tender flesh and sweet succulent taste of the sea, is something so delightful, so beautiful. And it pleases, it does. Well, for me anyway, at least. So a crab buffet where I can taste a wide plethora of crabs cooked many different ways really sounded fantastic to me.  And off I went to the Endless Crab Party Buffet at Spice Brasserie, … Continue reading Endless Crab Party Buffet | Parkroyal at Kitchener Road

The Malayan Council | Bustling Halal Mod-Sin Cafe

Who says cafes only have to serve eggs and coffee? The Malayan Council is destroying all notions of a ‘typical’ cafe, with their tasty Western-local fusion creations and mind blowing cakes and desserts. The cafe/restaurant though relatively small, is doing really well (completely packed on a Thursday night), so reservations are recommended. The person at the reservation phone (who I think is the owner) didn’t … Continue reading The Malayan Council | Bustling Halal Mod-Sin Cafe

Boruto | Cozy Modern Izakaya With Brilliant Food

These Japanese-Western fusion izakayas seem to be popping up everywhere. I’m not complaining though – with a sudden influx of fatty, oily beef mixed with rich ingredients like foie gras and/or sea urchin and poached eggs in the scene, there is simply more to enjoy, more to choose from. Boruto is one such izakaya, which I first visited because of a ridiculously delicious looking truffled … Continue reading Boruto | Cozy Modern Izakaya With Brilliant Food
