Yat Lok | Quality Roast Goose in a Roadside Stall Setting

If you ever find yourself in Hong Kong, do remember that roast goose is one of the city’s must eats. There are a number of famous eateries offering this sumptuous delight, and here is one that I’ve visited twice and would like to recommend. We had headed over to Yung Kee at Wellington Street first, the most famous one of the lot. However as we … Continue reading Yat Lok | Quality Roast Goose in a Roadside Stall Setting

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

The Betterfield, Waterloo Centre (MOVED)

Cafe, bistro, eatery – it’s hard to tell the difference sometimes. But frankly, does it really matter what it is? As long as the food is good, the ambience, prices and service are decent, I’m happy. The Betterfield is a new cafe/bistro that recently opened almost literally next door to Mosaic Dance, the studio at which I teach salsa. So you can imagine it has … Continue reading The Betterfield, Waterloo Centre (MOVED)

Pince & Pints, Duxton Road

Lobster + mayonnaise. What’s there not to love about that combination? So when I heard there was a new (okay by now, not so new) place in town selling delicious toasted buttery rolls stuffed with the meat of a whole lobster, I was sold on the idea. Thankfully, so was Z, and to celebrate our 2nd year together, we visited Pince & Pints on a Monday … Continue reading Pince & Pints, Duxton Road

Full of Crab, East Coast Road

Crab is a wonderful dish. I just love its succulent, firm, sweet fresh meat. The idea of having nice big crabs cooked and served in a plastic bag full of delicious rich sauce is one which appeals to me. So when this new concept recently hit Singapore, I was happy to give it a try. We popped by the newest one of the three restaurants which offer … Continue reading Full of Crab, East Coast Road

Bornga, The Star Vista

Happy Lunar New Year everyone! I’ve been pretty quiet on the blog for some time as I was really busy with work and moving office (we are now in Buona Vista). But since I happened to go to a nice Korean place last week at The Star Vista for lunch for a colleague’s farewell and was pretty impressed with the service and also some of the food, I decided to do … Continue reading Bornga, The Star Vista

[Moved] Blu Kouzina, Bukit Timah

I’ve only been to Greece once, and the visit was brief. A little jaunt to Athens for a salsa festival, with some lovely meals at little restaurants around where we were – namely, the Olympic stadium and the Acropolis. But I did remember having some very nice battered fried cheese and fresh tasting salads. And Blu Kouzina, the first full Greek restaurant in Singapore, authentically … Continue reading [Moved] Blu Kouzina, Bukit Timah

Wooloomooloo Steakhouse, Swissotel/Raffles City

What an adorable name for a restaurant, which rolls nicely on the tongue. Starting from its name, I decided that I rather liked this place already. And upon entering the classy establishment with a beautiful view of the night cityscape through full length glass windows, I had pretty high hopes for Wooloomooloo. Hailing from Hong Kong but named after a small town in Australia (Woolloomooloo), this stylish … Continue reading Wooloomooloo Steakhouse, Swissotel/Raffles City
