Miraku | Delicious, Worth It Omakase

I have a bit of mixed feelings about omakase (meaning ‘I’ll leave it to you’ – the chef, in Japanese), because on one hand, I absolutely adore the fresh, delicate and usually super tasty little courses that come as a bit of a surprise, without the stress of deciding what to eat, but on the other, not having control over what I get to eat … Continue reading Miraku | Delicious, Worth It Omakase

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

Lime, Parkroyal at Pickering

Can I just say one thing first – Parkroyal at Pickering’s pool area is SO pretty! Lovely cage-like structures scattered within an infinity pool, against a backdrop of a lovely cityscape. But okay, what this post is really about is the open-concept kitchen restaurant at the hotel, Lime. Lime offers both a-la-carte and daily lunch and dinner buffet spreads, and the latter was what we went … Continue reading Lime, Parkroyal at Pickering

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

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

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

Eng Seng Restaurant, Joo Chiat Place

Okay so I know I’m a bit slow and that Eng Seng’s black pepper crabs have been raved about for years. But it was always so far away and somehow I just never got a proper chance, so I hadn’t tried this popular crab dish until recently when one arose. And my verdict is that the sauce is indeed mopping-up-last-morsels-with-bread good. With a thick, slightly sweet sauce made tangy with coarse black … Continue reading Eng Seng Restaurant, Joo Chiat Place

Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant, Gardens by the Bay

Recently, it seemed to me like Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant has been quite industrious at organising food tasting sessions, as I kept seeing tantalising pictures of interesting dishes on my Instagram by popular bloggers and other key opinion leaders. I must say this was quite successful at having made me curious about the restaurant and keen to try it out. Located below the Flower Dome, Majestic Bay Seafood … Continue reading Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant, Gardens by the Bay
