Lady Wu | A Bar With Pretty Fabulous Food

One usually doesn’t expect the food at a bar to be particularly good, but Lady Wu surprised me with its simple yet inventive fusion dishes. Not only was the food delightful, the place had fun and chill neon vibes, that our party of five enjoyed imbibing in. First off, one of the highlight dishes for me was the Wagyu Beef Cubes (S$18++), a classic dish … Continue reading Lady Wu | A Bar With Pretty Fabulous Food

Salted and Hung | Sustainable Contemporary Australian Cuisine

I’m glad, that one of the last meals I ate at a restaurant before the heightened measures kicked in in May was at Salted and Hung. We had lunch there to celebrate a friend’s birthday and tried their tasting menus (they only serve that when you dine there, but no complaints about that). I took the 5-course option (S$78++), which started with a light starter … Continue reading Salted and Hung | Sustainable Contemporary Australian Cuisine

6 Ice Cream and Gelato Places in Singapore to Get Your Fix

It seems like many shops selling the lovely cold desserts of ice cream and gelato have been popping up all over Singapore lately, and I’ve likewise also been appearing at these spots. Well, only those in the central area, anyway (had my eye on a certain ice cream shop in Yishun but uh, I’m not going there just to eat ice cream). These are the … Continue reading 6 Ice Cream and Gelato Places in Singapore to Get Your Fix

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

Miraku | Delicious, Worth It Omakase

I have a bit of mixed feelings about omakase (meaning ‘I’ll leave it to you’ – the chef, in Japanese), because on one hand, I absolutely adore the fresh, delicate and usually super tasty little courses that come as a bit of a surprise, without the stress of deciding what to eat, but on the other, not having control over what I get to eat … Continue reading Miraku | Delicious, Worth It Omakase

Dalgona Coffee 달고나커피 | The Trending #StayAtHome Drink

So, I’m sure you expected this right? A pretty, trending drink, of course I had to try making it! Such a basic foodie, I know… Anyway, enough about me and more about the drink in question. Dalgona coffee, inspired by an old-school Korean toffee candy called ‘달고나’, started trending when people started staying at home more, since the corona virus happened. Well, and it was … Continue reading Dalgona Coffee 달고나커피 | The Trending #StayAtHome Drink

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

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

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

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

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
