5 Places To Get Good Pastries in Singapore

What’s your favourite type of bread? Mine’s the ‘croissant’ (pronounced as ‘kwah-son’). Who can resist those delicious pillowy, flaky layers of buttery, crisp yet chewy bread… well, people with more willpower than me, that’s for sure. Besides (various types and flavours of) croissants, I do enjoy most of the other similar breads in the Viennoiserie (or sometimes more loosely termed as pastries) family as well … Continue reading 5 Places To Get Good Pastries in Singapore

Charcoal-Grill and Salad Bar Keisuke | Delightful Mains and Free Flow Salad

I can’t even begin to explain how wonderful grilled fish is. When I try to imagine the flavours of the fish slowly being brought out in the heating process, its soft flesh sizzling, my mouth starts to water. So when I heard that Keisuke Takeda’s 19th restaurant (yes you read that right) specialises in authentic Japanese-style grilled fish ‘sumiyaki’ AND also has a free flow … Continue reading Charcoal-Grill and Salad Bar Keisuke | Delightful Mains and Free Flow Salad

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

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

Suprette | Is it the Best Burger In Town?

I’m not sure if Suprette does the best burger in town, but it sure serves up a pretty damn awesome one. Their Suprette Burger (S$25 for the basic one not including add-ons) features a juicy, moist minced beef patty that was full of flavour and rested gently between a fluffy buttered and toasted-to-a-lovely-crisp bun. I really liked how the elements of their burgers come together … Continue reading Suprette | Is it the Best Burger In Town?

Curious Palatte | Imaginative, Quirky Food, Excellent Coffee

With a dish cheekily named ‘Magic Mushrooms’ on their menu, one might expect that the establishment that came up with it would not be a stuffy one. And stuffy Curious Palatte is certainly not, as the bright and airy space with its high ceilings, funky light bulbs and quirky plastic chairs instantly give off a hip and artistic vibe upon entry. Their coffee is ‘magic’ … Continue reading Curious Palatte | Imaginative, Quirky Food, Excellent Coffee

Ô Comptoir | Not Amazing But Kind Of Pleasing

A galette? What’s that, you might ask? Honestly, before I accidentally stumbled across a creperie in Belgium that served this, I had no idea as well. The galette is a type of French crusty cake, but the one more commonly seen in restaurants and such is the Breton galette, a buckwheat flour open faced pancake with savoury fillings. Apparently crêpes refer to the sweet ones … Continue reading Ô Comptoir | Not Amazing But Kind Of Pleasing

Yat Lok | Quality Roast Goose in a Roadside Stall Setting

If you ever find yourself in Hong Kong, do remember that roast goose is one of the city’s must eats. There are a number of famous eateries offering this sumptuous delight, and here is one that I’ve visited twice and would like to recommend. We had headed over to Yung Kee at Wellington Street first, the most famous one of the lot. However as we … Continue reading Yat Lok | Quality Roast Goose in a Roadside Stall Setting
