Walking on Sunshine | Korean Garden Cafe in Singapore

When I first stepped into Walking on Sunshine, I felt like I was transported into another world. They sure put in effort to make sure that the whole place felt like a lovely nature setting, but with just one difference – air conditioning, as this cafe is situated in a mall, along Orchard Road no less! The concept of this place is kind of a … Continue reading Walking on Sunshine | Korean Garden Cafe in Singapore

Redpan | A Fresh Spin on Local Favourites

A cafe/restaurant by an architectural firm… sounds like it’d be visually stunning with beautiful but pretentious (and not very tasty food), right? Well, not quite. redpan (if you stare at the middle closely enough you’ll see why it’s named as such) is a collaboration between DP Architects and GRUB, a culinary company advocating modern local food. And besides being a rather aesthetically pleasing place, it … Continue reading Redpan | A Fresh Spin on Local Favourites

The Malayan Council | Bustling Halal Mod-Sin Cafe

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

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

Onaka Restaurant & Wine Bar, Alexandra Retail Centre (Closed)

Being someone who puts quite a bit of thought into the things I feed my body with (even though I still choose to eat junk fairly often), you can imagine how glad I was to find a restaurant in Singapore that serves ‘conscious cuisine’! It may seem strange, as ‘conscious’ is not quite a type or style of food, but if you think about it … Continue reading Onaka Restaurant & Wine Bar, Alexandra Retail Centre (Closed)

Kaz Japanese Fusion Sushi, Rochester Mall

I’d say that Rochester is one of the hip, trendy enclaves of restaurants, bars and other eateries in Singapore. And Rochester Mall is its newest addition, close to the main road. This place seems a bit different though. A mid-sized, sleepy building at the entrance to Rochester, it houses just about 10 F&B establishments and then mostly services like laundry, hair, spa, education etc – … Continue reading Kaz Japanese Fusion Sushi, Rochester Mall
