Simplicité | A Modern European Cafe by Fresh Fruits Lab

Fresh Fruits Lab used to be a fun, brightly coloured neighbourhood cafe back in the day, which recently decided to rebrand and launch itself as a classy, modern European one named Simplicité. It’s really got a Parisian feel now, with their big glass windows, blue and white chairs reminsicent of a French bistro, and vintage finishings. I did rather like the vibes, and even more … Continue reading Simplicité | A Modern European Cafe by Fresh Fruits Lab

Salted and Hung | Sustainable Contemporary Australian Cuisine

I’m glad, that one of the last meals I ate at a restaurant before the heightened measures kicked in in May was at Salted and Hung. We had lunch there to celebrate a friend’s birthday and tried their tasting menus (they only serve that when you dine there, but no complaints about that). I took the 5-course option (S$78++), which started with a light starter … Continue reading Salted and Hung | Sustainable Contemporary Australian Cuisine

Burnt Ends | High-End Barbecued Food

A reservation at Burnt Ends is notoriously hard to get, so when a friend offered up hers to a group of friends to take, I jumped at the chance to visit this Michelin-starred restaurant. Nevermind that a meal there could cost me a few hundred dollars. It’s a ‘once in a while’ thing, I convinced myself. Many courses of the ‘Chef’s Selection’ experience and a … Continue reading Burnt Ends | High-End Barbecued Food

Redpan | A Fresh Spin on Local Favourites

A cafe/restaurant by an architectural firm… sounds like it’d be visually stunning with beautiful but pretentious (and not very tasty food), right? Well, not quite. redpan (if you stare at the middle closely enough you’ll see why it’s named as such) is a collaboration between DP Architects and GRUB, a culinary company advocating modern local food. And besides being a rather aesthetically pleasing place, it … Continue reading Redpan | A Fresh Spin on Local Favourites

[Closed] Fynn’s | Stunning Modern Australian Cafe in Singapore

I’m usually the sort of person who delights in richness and quantity when it comes to food. For example, I love having meals with lots of thick, tasty sauce or big chunks of succulent meats. Fynn’s was pretty much the opposite of this, and it surprised me to realise that I actually very much enjoyed its clean flavours, plating and delicate touch. The eight dishes … Continue reading [Closed] Fynn’s | Stunning Modern Australian Cafe in Singapore

The Malayan Council | Bustling Halal Mod-Sin Cafe

Who says cafes only have to serve eggs and coffee? The Malayan Council is destroying all notions of a ‘typical’ cafe, with their tasty Western-local fusion creations and mind blowing cakes and desserts. The cafe/restaurant though relatively small, is doing really well (completely packed on a Thursday night), so reservations are recommended. The person at the reservation phone (who I think is the owner) didn’t … Continue reading The Malayan Council | Bustling Halal Mod-Sin Cafe

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
