Pollen, Gardens By The Bay

I had heard about Pollen, a Mediterranean inspired modern European restaurant in the midst of the flora and fauna at Gardens by the Bay for quite some time. And on my birthday earlier this year, I finally got the chance to visit this place! What I was amused by but rather appreciated, was the value-added service that they provide – a buggy that ferries you to … Continue reading Pollen, Gardens By The Bay

10 Scotts, Grand Hyatt Singapore

One Sunday afternoon in June last year, Z decided on the spur of the moment that we should go for a nice afternoon tea. And so I tried to book a spot at Tea Lounge (Regent) and Brasserie Les Saveurs (St Regis), but was unsuccessful. Searched around online and ended up with 10 Scotts at Grand Hyatt Singapore, since reviews seemed positive and they had seats available. And … Continue reading 10 Scotts, Grand Hyatt Singapore

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

[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

Bruno’s Pizzeria & Grill, Tanjong Katong Road

An unassuming little Italian eatery in Katong, but oh, what delightful and hearty meals they serve. Sometime last year on a Tuesday evening, the boyfriend and I decided to take a stroll around the area looking for food and happened to see this place. It was pretty quiet – there weren’t many people there so we didn’t have to wait for a table and service … Continue reading Bruno’s Pizzeria & Grill, Tanjong Katong Road

Bistro Petit Salut, Chip Bee Gardens

Bistro Petit Salut, c’est superb! To celebrate my bf’s birthday, I decided to take him to Bistro Petit Salut, a cosy little French restaurant at the Chip Bee stretch behind Holland Village. The sister (or poorer cousin?) of the classier (and more expensive) Au Petit Salut, it was surprisingly good, with prompt, polite and friendly service, and delicious, reasonably-priced food. The starters were a lobster … Continue reading Bistro Petit Salut, Chip Bee Gardens

Flutes at the Fort

This is another back dated post – visited Flutes at the Fort about 2 months back and here is my review. Apologies about the rather blur pictures; was still using a point-and-shoot and there wasn’t much lighting, considering the place went for the dimly-lit-by-candle ambience/look. A pretty place. Quiet and posh, with a colonial feel (it was built in 1908, and used to be… the house … Continue reading Flutes at the Fort
