Can I just say one thing first – Parkroyal at Pickering’s pool area is SO pretty! Lovely cage-like structures scattered within an infinity pool, against a backdrop of a lovely cityscape. But okay, what this post is really about is the open-concept kitchen restaurant at the hotel, Lime. Lime offers both a-la-carte and daily lunch and dinner buffet spreads, and the latter was what we went … Continue reading Lime, Parkroyal at Pickering
Happy Mid-Autumn everyone! The actual day is finally here, though I think everyone has probably already been fervently munching on mooncakes since late (or perhaps mid?) August. Since last week there has been an influx of mooncakes arriving at my office from various suppliers, vendors, agencies etc, and I’ve had the pleasure (and guilt) of sampling baked mooncakes from many fine hotel restaurants including those at … Continue reading Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
Over the recent long weekend, Z and I visited the St Regis for what we had thought would be a nice, luxurious high tea. Well it did feel luxurious indeed, with the high ceilings, opulent furnishings of their Brasserie Les Saveurs restaurant and wonderful live tunes from the resident pianist. Absolutely beautiful ambience and a lovely place to sit back, relax and sip tea, but … Continue reading Brasserie Les Saveurs (High Tea), St Regis Hotel
*This was an invited food tasting session.

And of course, I just had to pay this place a visit. So for my birthday earlier this year, I chose to go to Basilico at Regent Hotel for a nice lunch. Upon entering the restaurant, I noticed that … Continue reading Basilico, The Regent Singapore
I was recently invited to a tasting session at TODAI, an international all-you-can-eat buffet chain restaurant (the website says it originates from North America, but they have many branches in Korea – the Singapore branch is apparently partly handled by the Korean office) located at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, and totally jumped at the chance. You see, I love buffets, and the many … Continue reading TODAI, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands
Sometimes, I find it a tall order to search for and decide on the right place to take your loved ones to for a good meal. This was another one of those times. I was looking for good Chinese restaurants to celebrate my dad’s birthday and was running out of ideas. So then I heard that Summer Palace at The Regent Hotel is pretty good, … Continue reading Summer Palace, The Regent Singapore
