Olivia | Fine Flavours of Spain

Since Olivia’s Burnt Cheesecake burst all over Instagram a couple of years ago, I was captivated by it and knew I had to visit this place someday. And I finally did, earlier this year for my birthday, thanks to some lovely friends. Upon entering the classy restaurant with warm, welcoming vibes, waiters swarmed us asking if we wanted still or sparkling, and kind of decided … Continue reading Olivia | Fine Flavours of Spain

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

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?

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

Pollen, Gardens By The Bay

I had heard about Pollen, a Mediterranean inspired modern European restaurant in the midst of the flora and fauna at Gardens by the Bay for quite some time. And on my birthday earlier this year, I finally got the chance to visit this place! What I was amused by but rather appreciated, was the value-added service that they provide – a buggy that ferries you to … Continue reading Pollen, Gardens By The Bay

[Closed] 5 Little Bears, Far East Plaza

Ah Taiwanese food. Juicy fried chicken chops, silky smooth mee sua and fragrant beef noodle soup and more – gotta admit that there is some allure to the cuisine on offer. Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks brought us some of these, to be enjoyed while on-the-go. 5 Little Bears (I don’t really understand the name but I guess it’s as good as any) is now bringing … Continue reading [Closed] 5 Little Bears, Far East Plaza

&Made Burger Bistro, Pacific Plaza

Since I heard about this gourmet burger bistro in Singapore set up by Bruno Menard, a three Michelin starred chef Bruno Menard in late 2012, I’ve been meaning to pay it a visit but somehow never got the chance. Finally popped by for some burgers and truffle fries recently (with a Palate discount yay) and quite liked what I had. Was kind of hungry so didn’t … Continue reading &Made Burger Bistro, Pacific Plaza

Wooloomooloo Steakhouse, Swissotel/Raffles City

What an adorable name for a restaurant, which rolls nicely on the tongue. Starting from its name, I decided that I rather liked this place already. And upon entering the classy establishment with a beautiful view of the night cityscape through full length glass windows, I had pretty high hopes for Wooloomooloo. Hailing from Hong Kong but named after a small town in Australia (Woolloomooloo), this stylish … Continue reading Wooloomooloo Steakhouse, Swissotel/Raffles City

The Square, Novotel Clarke Quay

*This was an invited food tasting session. Situated within the Novotel hotel that has been part of the Clarke Quay landscape for probably at least a decade, The Square Restaurant also gives off a bit of an old school charm. The restaurant is situated in a spacious corner on Level 7 (which also houses the hotel reception and bar, Le Rouge) of the Novotel Clarke Quay, and … Continue reading The Square, Novotel Clarke Quay
