Izakaya Hikari | New Casual Japanese Eatery

Today, I’m blogging about a two-month old Japanese izakaya which is currently, unfortunately, closed for around a month now during Singapore’s ‘circuit breaker’ which includes a restriction on dining out. Well, just going to share my experience eating there recently, in the hope that they still manage to continue operating after this period. Situated in the sleepy, old Fortune Centre, it’s more of a friendly … Continue reading Izakaya Hikari | New Casual Japanese Eatery

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

Ryo Sushi | Affordable and Tasty Omakase

Omakase at S$18. Huh, what? Excuse me? Sounds too good to be true, but it is – for the first 18 patrons of the day (limited opening special). After that, the prices are S$38, S$68 and S$98 respectively for the various levels of Omakase (dishes selected by the chef) sets offered at Ryo Sushi. I recently tried their S$38 course, which comes with edamame, seaweed salad, … Continue reading Ryo Sushi | Affordable and Tasty Omakase

The Sushi Bar Dining | Delightful Aburi Kaisen Don

Another Japanese restaurant! Singapore is seriously full of them. Well… I guess high demand, high supply, hence the many places offering cuisine from the land of the rising sun. The Sushi Bar is one such place. This small but popular shop has been satisfying consumers with affordable, neatly arranged sushi rolls, fresh chirashi dons and sushi at Far East Plaza since 2012, with long lines clamouring … Continue reading The Sushi Bar Dining | Delightful Aburi Kaisen Don

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar, Wisma Orchard

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar at Wisma This year, I’ve been to Wisma Atria a few times for various reasons – eat teppanyaki, fix my Sony camera etc. And each time I pass by Koh Grill & Sushi Bar, the casual Japanese place within the mall food court, there’s always an insane queue. So of course that got me curious about it (we Singaporeans like to queue for the good … Continue reading Koh Grill & Sushi Bar, Wisma Orchard

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

Some Great (and Not-So-Great) Food Around The Bugis Area

Bugis. The new town outside of town, it is home to the thriving outdoor shopping market Bugis Village where the young trawl for affordable fashion, as well as the yuppie cafes, Middle-Eastern eateries and quirky fashion shops in the Haji Lane/Arab Street area – and not forgetting the malls – Bugis Junction, and the recently launched Bugis +. As a person who goes there approximately 5 … Continue reading Some Great (and Not-So-Great) Food Around The Bugis Area

TODAI, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands

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

Shucks. Getting a proper office job is seriously impeding my online life quite a bit – I now hardly have time to blog or post things on Facebook. But anyway – here are some (rather grainy, I apologize) pictures+quick reviews from some nice meals with friends. Really should start bringing a small point-and-shoot around…! First up is – Food for Thought (http://www.foodforthought.com.sg). The contenders are … Continue reading Mobile uploads
