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

Elixir Boutique Roasters | Classy and Chill Cafe in Bukit Timah

Tough times don’t last, tough people (and businesses, I guess) do. After about 11 weeks of a ‘circuit breaker’ period (semi-lockdown) in Singapore, we’re now allowed to go out a little more, in small groups, with certain measures in place. While I’m trying to take it slow and not rush out with the crowds, I admit that I was very happy to be able to … Continue reading Elixir Boutique Roasters | Classy and Chill Cafe in Bukit Timah

田 Magic Square | Sustainable, Artistic Food

After a meal at this place, my first thought was ‘wow, what an apt name for this one year long pop-up restaurant’. Because the food truly feels like magic – how the flavours and ingredients blended together seamlessly to give my palate a wonderful time. We experienced the August menu, a 9-course creation by the youngest chef of the lot – Desmond Shen. The menu … Continue reading 田 Magic Square | Sustainable, Artistic Food

What’s Your Beef? | A Rundown of 11 Gyudons in Singapore

I recently realised that I’ve actually consumed an alarming amount of beef bowls over some time, and so my immediate response to that was ‘Hey! I should do a blog post about it’ (sorry cows…). And so here is my little comparison post of 11 different types of beef bowls you can find in Singapore, from the everyday pocket friendly ones to the occasional indulgence. … Continue reading What’s Your Beef? | A Rundown of 11 Gyudons in Singapore

[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

Sushiro | Good Value Bara Chirashi Don in the North of Singapore

*UPDATE: This restaurant has now renamed to Omoté Singapore. Everyone has probably heard of Sushiro by now, with many people touting it as the ‘cheapest bara chirashi don in Singapore’. Or, one of the cheapest at least. At $12.80 for a seemingly generous serving of chunky cubes of raw fish on rice, it’s pretty good value. I, being the greedy girl I am, went straight … Continue reading Sushiro | Good Value Bara Chirashi Don in the North of 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

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

Grain Traders | My New Absolute Favourite Place For Lunch

I am besotted. Sorry The Daily Cut, I have a new love now in terms of lunch places. The name of my current beloved is Grain Traders, a fairly new ‘slow food real fast’ eatery in the CBD that serves up awesome, healthy warm meals you can mix-and-match to your heart’s desire. At S$16 per bowl it does seem a little more on the pricey … Continue reading Grain Traders | My New Absolute Favourite Place For Lunch

La Ristrettos | A Surprise Find In A Place of Healing

Upon entering La Ristrettos, one is suddenly transported from the white, clinical corridors of the Novena Medical Centre into a warm, cosy café full of brown furnishings, quaint wall decorations and tasteful flower arrangement pieces. The large window panes on one side of the café with a mix of white lace and gingham curtain adornments, the backdrop for a high table seating area, struck me as rather … Continue reading La Ristrettos | A Surprise Find In A Place of Healing
