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

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. 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

The Daily Cut | Knows How to Serve A Satisfying Salad

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

Boxgreen, Wholesome Snacks Delivered to Your Doorstep

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

Home-style Soups by Freshen Foods

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

The Bravery, Jalan Besar

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

An Update On My Personal Clean(ish) Eating Challenge

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

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)

A Clean(ish) Eating Food Challenge

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
