PeraMakan, Keppel Club

It seems a little funny how I’ve been to PeraMakan probably close to 20 times already over the last few years, but somehow never thought of writing a post on it. I guess it could be because Peranakan food doesn’t feature strongly on my favourite foods list, though I do like it quite a bit as well. Peranakan food sometimes seems like the forgotten second cousin, in … Continue reading PeraMakan, Keppel Club

Peach Blossoms, Marina Mandarin

I’m not quite sure what the occasion is (or perhaps they’re just in season), but Peach Blossoms at the Marina Mandarin is having a special abalone menu for the month of June! From abalone boiled in soups, stir-fried with vegetables or stewed with noodles, they are offering a nice range of dishes to satisfy those abalone cravings. Our family decided to pay Peach Blossoms a … Continue reading Peach Blossoms, Marina Mandarin

Absinthe Restaurant Français, Boat Quay

The brainchild of four friends from Europe, Absinthe is a popular French restaurant which has been in Singapore for already around five years or so. Before moving to its new home along the bright, lively streets of Boat Quay, it first blossomed in the restaurant enclave of Bukit Pasoh, along with the now long standing Oso Ristorante. Before visiting it for dinner a few months ago to celebrate an … Continue reading Absinthe Restaurant Français, Boat Quay

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

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

Bistro Du Vin, Zion Road

Bistro Du Vin is a restaurant that I have been meaning to try for the longest time. During restaurant week earlier this year, almost made reservations for lunch but these fell through due to a busy week. I am happy to say that I finally visited this lovely French restaurant for lunch this month with delightful company and had a most wonderful time there. The … Continue reading Bistro Du Vin, Zion Road

[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

Paradise Pavilion, Marina Bay Financial Centre / Link Mall

And now it is time for yet another review of a Paradise Group eatery! This time, the establishment in question is the classy Paradise Pavilion, a restaurant decked out in French-Baroque inspired design, catering more towards the high end. I visited this place recently for both lunch and dinner, so will combine my thoughts on both experiences into one post. Did I think that Paradise … Continue reading Paradise Pavilion, Marina Bay Financial Centre / Link Mall

Brasserie Les Saveurs (High Tea), St Regis Hotel

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

Si Chuan Dou Hua, Top of UOB Plaza

Si Chuan Dou Hua has been at the top of UOB Plaza since 2002, but I only heard about it sometime this year through some food blog posts and Instagram pictures that were going around. Sentiments seemed pretty positive and so I proposed to try this place for a recent dim sum excursion with friends. The restaurant is on the 60th storey and offers a great view … Continue reading Si Chuan Dou Hua, Top of UOB Plaza
