Redpan | A Fresh Spin on Local Favourites

A cafe/restaurant by an architectural firm… sounds like it’d be visually stunning with beautiful but pretentious (and not very tasty food), right? Well, not quite. redpan (if you stare at the middle closely enough you’ll see why it’s named as such) is a collaboration between DP Architects and GRUB, a culinary company advocating modern local food. And besides being a rather aesthetically pleasing place, it … Continue reading Redpan | A Fresh Spin on Local Favourites

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

The Daily Cut | Knows How to Serve A Satisfying Salad

I never really liked salads before. The idea of eating a bunch of green, healthy tasting stuff was not particularly appealing to me. Only when I decided that I must try to lose some weight/fat and get leaner/more muscular, that I began eating salads 2 to 3 times a week, sometimes more or less, depending on how soon a salsa performance was coming up. And … Continue reading The Daily Cut | Knows How to Serve A Satisfying Salad

The Betterfield, Waterloo Centre (MOVED)

Cafe, bistro, eatery – it’s hard to tell the difference sometimes. But frankly, does it really matter what it is? As long as the food is good, the ambience, prices and service are decent, I’m happy. The Betterfield is a new cafe/bistro that recently opened almost literally next door to Mosaic Dance, the studio at which I teach salsa. So you can imagine it has … Continue reading The Betterfield, Waterloo Centre (MOVED)

Wooloomooloo Steakhouse, Swissotel/Raffles City

What an adorable name for a restaurant, which rolls nicely on the tongue. Starting from its name, I decided that I rather liked this place already. And upon entering the classy establishment with a beautiful view of the night cityscape through full length glass windows, I had pretty high hopes for Wooloomooloo. Hailing from Hong Kong but named after a small town in Australia (Woolloomooloo), this stylish … Continue reading Wooloomooloo Steakhouse, Swissotel/Raffles City

Privé Restaurant, Keppel Bay

I was tasked to pick a nice place for a farewell lunch near the Alexandra area, and Privé came to mind. So off we went for a weekday executive set lunch at this restaurant. The ambience and decor were rather nice, posh, clean and peaceful. It is a little hard to find though as it’s tucked away in a corner of Keppel Island, past the Privé Cafe and Waterfront Bar, … Continue reading Privé Restaurant, Keppel Bay

Loysel’s Toy, Kampong Bugis

A part of the Papa Palheta speciality coffee experience, Loysel’s Toy is an unassuming cafe buried deep in the woods of Lavender. Situated next to Kallang Riverside Park, it enjoys a view of foliage and the occasional breeze. As it’s fairly small (I’d say maybe about 20 tables) and basically the only F&B joint on ground level in that entire area, Loysel’s Toy is nice and quiet, with a relaxed, … Continue reading Loysel’s Toy, Kampong Bugis

Le Bon Marche, Bukit Timah

Readers of this blog might have realised that I have a penchant for French food. Especially the tasty, wholesome and comforting sort. I simply can’t resist the strong, rich taste of well seared foie gras and flavourful juicy medium rare steaks. So it’s no surprise that I’ve visited this quaint French restaurant, Le Bon Marche, twice. The first time for a birthday celebration, where I … Continue reading Le Bon Marche, Bukit Timah

Les Bouchons Rive Gauche, Robertson Quay

Arguably one of the best steaks I have had in Singapore So I went to Les Bouchons about 2 months back, after wanting to sample their steak for the longest time. Have heard lots of good (and bad) things about the place, but went there with an open mind. And man, the steak is GOOD. Juicy, succulent and flavourful, it certainly did not disappoint – … Continue reading Les Bouchons Rive Gauche, Robertson Quay
