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

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.

Not sure if it’s my Asian upbringing, but to me, there is just something extremely comforting and satisfying about a bowl of piping hot soup. And … Continue reading Home-style Soups by Freshen Foods

Holland Village XO Fish Beehoon, Dover Crescent

Yes, I know, Holland Village is not in Dover. But it made sense for this stalwart establishment which had been a fixture at Holland V for a good number of years to retain its original name, given how well known they have become. And the long wait for the food when its full house is quite the testament to its popularity. No, I don’t think … Continue reading Holland Village XO Fish Beehoon, Dover Crescent

Le Bon Marche, Bukit Timah

Readers of this blog might have realised that I have a penchant for French food. Especially the tasty, wholesome and comforting sort. I simply can’t resist the strong, rich taste of well seared foie gras and flavourful juicy medium rare steaks. So it’s no surprise that I’ve visited this quaint French restaurant, Le Bon Marche, twice. The first time for a birthday celebration, where I … Continue reading Le Bon Marche, Bukit Timah
