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

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

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

Sheng Jian Bao | The Lovechild of Xiao Long Bao and Guo Tie

If you’ve been to Shanghai and not had a taste of their legendary sheng jian baos, I would say – you’ve totally missed out. Go and book a ticket back there right this instance. Ok, I’m kidding (just a little). Admittedly, I’ve mainly only tried these mystical sheng jian baos from one key brand (and some other shop that is more famous for its jian … Continue reading Sheng Jian Bao | The Lovechild of Xiao Long Bao and Guo Tie

Living Life Upside Down

So, I’ve been somewhat obsessed or okay perhaps interested is a better word, in doing inversions this year. Be it a handstand or a headstand, I have been fairly determined to achieve a state of balance while in an upside down position. I am also quite convinced that doing more of these will help to give me abs. Haha crazy I know, but it just seems … Continue reading Living Life Upside Down

Kau Kee | Probably the Best Beef Brisket Noodles I’ve Ever Had

Ahhh, Kau Kee. Before I went to Hong Kong this time, I did some research on places to eat. And in many of my searches and chats with friends, Kau Kee came up a few times, and with glowing reviews. I was initially a bit skeptical, can a beef brisket noodle stall really be that good? After I entered the small cosy store and sat down … Continue reading Kau Kee | Probably the Best Beef Brisket Noodles I’ve Ever Had

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

I recently found out from ZALORA that they just launched an awesome summer special Jetstar promotion yesterday, with 32 prizes up for grabs – 8 grand prizes and 24 consolation prizes! All you … Continue reading Win an Epic Summer Vacation Sponsored by Zalora X Jetstar

The Betterfield, Waterloo Centre (MOVED)

Cafe, bistro, eatery – it’s hard to tell the difference sometimes. But frankly, does it really matter what it is? As long as the food is good, the ambience, prices and service are decent, I’m happy. The Betterfield is a new cafe/bistro that recently opened almost literally next door to Mosaic Dance, the studio at which I teach salsa. So you can imagine it has … Continue reading The Betterfield, Waterloo Centre (MOVED)

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

Stirling Highway, Ulu Pandan

It’s another cafe post! What can I say, I really like cafes. There’s just something about kicking back to chill out and have a nice cup of coffee or tea, with some sweet and savoury goodies. Better on weekends, but hey, makes for a nice and relaxing weekday lunch too. Stirling Highway takes the place of Haato at the sleepy Ridgewood Close condominium, tucked away … Continue reading Stirling Highway, Ulu Pandan
