Elixir Boutique Roasters | Classy and Chill Cafe in Bukit Timah

Tough times don’t last, tough people (and businesses, I guess) do. After about 11 weeks of a ‘circuit breaker’ period (semi-lockdown) in Singapore, we’re now allowed to go out a little more, in small groups, with certain measures in place. While I’m trying to take it slow and not rush out with the crowds, I admit that I was very happy to be able to … Continue reading Elixir Boutique Roasters | Classy and Chill Cafe in Bukit Timah

Suprette | Is it the Best Burger In Town?

I’m not sure if Suprette does the best burger in town, but it sure serves up a pretty damn awesome one. Their Suprette Burger (S$25 for the basic one not including add-ons) features a juicy, moist minced beef patty that was full of flavour and rested gently between a fluffy buttered and toasted-to-a-lovely-crisp bun. I really liked how the elements of their burgers come together … Continue reading Suprette | Is it the Best Burger In Town?

Atlas Coffeehouse | Breathing Life Into the Bukit Timah Cafe Scene

When I visited Atlas Coffeehouse a few days ago it was barely a week old, yet patrons were already lining the counter seats facing the busy main road of Bukit Timah. Interestingly, this is not the first hot new cafe that is helmed by another established one, as others before seemed to have been doing so too, with different propositions and monikers (like On The Table by … Continue reading Atlas Coffeehouse | Breathing Life Into the Bukit Timah Cafe Scene

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

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

On The Table, Pasir Panjang

Happy New Year everyone! For my first post of 2015, I have decided to share about a cafe I recently visited (as I love cafes, and also, in case anyone needs inspiration for a place to hang out this weekend). Been wanting to but still haven’t been to the popular Lola’s Cafe in Kovan because of the location, so when I heard that they had … Continue reading On The Table, Pasir Panjang

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

Jimmy Monkey, One North

And here’s another post on one of the One North cafés. Jimmy Monkey has been at One North Residences for around 3 years already though, so I wouldn’t say that it is a new upstart in the area. At the corner of a sleepy residential block next to a shop selling picture frames, you might just walk right past it if you weren’t specifically going … Continue reading Jimmy Monkey, One North

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

Bornga, The Star Vista

Happy Lunar New Year everyone! I’ve been pretty quiet on the blog for some time as I was really busy with work and moving office (we are now in Buona Vista). But since I happened to go to a nice Korean place last week at The Star Vista for lunch for a colleague’s farewell and was pretty impressed with the service and also some of the food, I decided to do … Continue reading Bornga, The Star Vista

[Moved] Blu Kouzina, Bukit Timah

I’ve only been to Greece once, and the visit was brief. A little jaunt to Athens for a salsa festival, with some lovely meals at little restaurants around where we were – namely, the Olympic stadium and the Acropolis. But I did remember having some very nice battered fried cheese and fresh tasting salads. And Blu Kouzina, the first full Greek restaurant in Singapore, authentically … Continue reading [Moved] Blu Kouzina, Bukit Timah
