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

6 Ice Cream and Gelato Places in Singapore to Get Your Fix

It seems like many shops selling the lovely cold desserts of ice cream and gelato have been popping up all over Singapore lately, and I’ve likewise also been appearing at these spots. Well, only those in the central area, anyway (had my eye on a certain ice cream shop in Yishun but uh, I’m not going there just to eat ice cream). These are the … Continue reading 6 Ice Cream and Gelato Places in Singapore to Get Your Fix

s t e e p | Cosy Mod-Aesthetic Cafe

I was pretty excited about this new cafe in the Jalan Besar area (I know, another one?!), because of the first look shots of its stylish, monochromatic interior and vibrant, appetizing dishes circulating on Instagram in early April. And since I kind of hang out in this area quite a bit, I just had to find an opportunity to pop by for a visit (or … Continue reading s t e e p | Cosy Mod-Aesthetic Cafe

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

So, I know that it’s only April and that there are 8 more months for other dishes to become my favourites, but why not list what I have right now first, right?

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

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

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
