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

Two Bakers, Jalan Besar

“What, another cafe at Jalan Besar?!”, you might say? You don’t understand, this is not just another cafe. With a luscious glowing display counter of beautiful tarts and pastries, Two Bakers is much more an artisan bakery or dessert shop than the usual cafe. Sure, it has food (which actually sounds pretty good) and probably coffee too (I didn’t check for the latter because I was so taken with … Continue reading Two Bakers, Jalan Besar

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)

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

On The Table, Pasir Panjang

Happy New Year everyone! For my first post of 2015, I have decided to share about a cafe I recently visited (as I love cafes, and also, in case anyone needs inspiration for a place to hang out this weekend). Been wanting to but still haven’t been to the popular Lola’s Cafe in Kovan because of the location, so when I heard that they had … Continue reading On The Table, Pasir Panjang

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

Home-style Soups by Freshen Foods

I’ve always loved drinking soup. In fact, I was having a bowl of soup from Soup Spoon, as I started writing this. Chinese soups, Western soups and even spicy Thai ones – I would usually finish every single drop. Not sure if it’s my Asian upbringing, but to me, there is just something extremely comforting and satisfying about a bowl of piping hot soup. And … Continue reading Home-style Soups by Freshen Foods

PeraMakan, Keppel Club

It seems a little funny how I’ve been to PeraMakan probably close to 20 times already over the last few years, but somehow never thought of writing a post on it. I guess it could be because Peranakan food doesn’t feature strongly on my favourite foods list, though I do like it quite a bit as well. Peranakan food sometimes seems like the forgotten second cousin, in … Continue reading PeraMakan, Keppel Club

Patisserie La Douceur, Taipei

Gosh. I only just realised today that I haven’t blogged for about 4 months! Been so incredibly busy, but not to worry, am still passionate about food (just take a look at my Instagram hehe). Anyway, I’d like to quickly share a bit about a gem of a dessert shop I visited in Taipei in August. Which actually many of you likely already know about, … Continue reading Patisserie La Douceur, Taipei

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

Group Therapy, Katong V and Duxton Road

I’ve visited Group Therapy at Katong V at least five times, and the one at Duxton a couple of times, but somehow never got around to writing a post on it. An ex-classmate of mine is one of the founders, and I initially visited the original branch at Duxton about 3 years back to try it out, show some support. But after they set up … Continue reading Group Therapy, Katong V and Duxton Road

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
