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
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. At S$16 per bowl it does seem a little more on the pricey … Continue reading Grain Traders | My New Absolute Favourite Place For Lunch
Okay so I know it’s March already, but hey, I can still write about food trends which I think will take off over the course of this year right? For many of us, food is something that we love with our hearts and souls, and is a space where there are constant innovations to create better options and varieties for people to enjoy. Here are some … Continue reading All About Food! Trends in 2016?
Hi everyone! So this is not a full out blog post on my recent trip to Ubud in Bali, but I just wanted to write a quick update that… I’m back! And that Ubud is truly a wonderful, peaceful place that one can easily spend 2 weeks in. I went there on a solo trip with the intention of getting away and devoting some time … Continue reading I’m back from Bali!
I never really liked salads before. The idea of eating a bunch of green, healthy tasting stuff was not particularly appealing to me. Only when I decided that I must try to lose some weight/fat and get leaner/more muscular, that I began eating salads 2 to 3 times a week, sometimes more or less, depending on how soon a salsa performance was coming up. And … Continue reading The Daily Cut | Knows How to Serve A Satisfying Salad
I love receiving parcels. The anticipation of something new, the thrill of having it in your hands and tearing open (or lovingly unwrapping, if you prefer) the packaging to reveal what is within, is quite a unique experience. So when my first Boxgreen arrived, I was all abound with excitement – not knowing what this little brown box would yield. Boxgreen aims to be a one-stop … Continue reading Boxgreen, Wholesome Snacks Delivered to Your Doorstep
I’ve always loved drinking soup. In fact, I was having a bowl of soup from Soup Spoon, as I started writing this. Chinese soups, Western soups and even spicy Thai ones – I would usually finish every single drop. 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
So I just moved to a new office at The Metropolis in late January, and a friend recommended a nearby salad place to try for lunch. And oh boy, after trying it, I went back another two times that week! The concept is not new – a mix and match sort of thing, where you choose what kind of salad ingredients, dressing and toppings you … Continue reading The Lawn, Biopolis
Jalan Besar is fast becoming a hipster area for cafés, bakeries and quaint little eateries. With Loysel’s Toy first opening at a little industrial building in the Lavender area around 3 years ago, to the popular Chye Seng Huat Hardware that popped up last year, and many more. The Bravery is a new kid on the block, joining the growing café scene there just a … Continue reading The Bravery, Jalan Besar
Hello folks! Here is a little interim update on my little two week commitment to eating somewhat healthily (as best I can while eating out). So far, I’ve managed to resist the temptations of ice cream, bak kwa, chocolate, croissants and more over the last 9 days, but I think I’ve really not been eating as clean as I could have. Mainly because of the sauces … Continue reading An Update On My Personal Clean(ish) Eating Challenge
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)
So after a lovely long weekend of feasting, I have decided to undertake a personal clean(ish) food challenge for a period of about 2 weeks from tomorrow 12 August to the night of 24 August, till the 2nd anniversary party of Mosaic Dance on that Saturday, where I will be performing. This is an attempt to call out those kind-of-there-but-not-quite-yet abs of mine, to look … Continue reading A Clean(ish) Eating Food Challenge
