Absinthe Restaurant Français, Boat Quay

The brainchild of four friends from Europe, Absinthe is a popular French restaurant which has been in Singapore for already around five years or so. Before moving to its new home along the bright, lively streets of Boat Quay, it first blossomed in the restaurant enclave of Bukit Pasoh, along with the now long standing Oso Ristorante. Before visiting it for dinner a few months ago to celebrate an … Continue reading Absinthe Restaurant Français, Boat Quay

Bornga, The Star Vista

Happy Lunar New Year everyone! I’ve been pretty quiet on the blog for some time as I was really busy with work and moving office (we are now in Buona Vista). But since I happened to go to a nice Korean place last week at The Star Vista for lunch for a colleague’s farewell and was pretty impressed with the service and also some of the food, I decided to do … Continue reading Bornga, The Star Vista

Bistro Du Vin, Zion Road

Bistro Du Vin is a restaurant that I have been meaning to try for the longest time. During restaurant week earlier this year, almost made reservations for lunch but these fell through due to a busy week. I am happy to say that I finally visited this lovely French restaurant for lunch this month with delightful company and had a most wonderful time there. The … Continue reading Bistro Du Vin, Zion Road

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

Happy Mid-Autumn everyone! The actual day is finally here, though I think everyone has probably already been fervently munching on mooncakes since late (or perhaps mid?) August. Since last week there has been an influx of mooncakes arriving at my office from various suppliers, vendors, agencies etc, and I’ve had the pleasure (and guilt) of sampling baked mooncakes from many fine hotel restaurants including those at … Continue reading Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

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

Symmetry, Jalan Kubor

Another cafe review! I just love spending weekends at cafes, enjoying some nice coffee and brunch, and watching the world go by. And since there are just so many new establishments in the Singapore cafe scene at any one time, I just have to go around trying out these places too. So, Symmetry is one of these fairly new additions (but then again, which ones aren’t, really) … Continue reading Symmetry, Jalan Kubor

Riders Cafe, Bukit Timah Saddle Club

Riders Cafe is a popular weekend brunch spot that is known for almost never having any immediately available space if you show up without a reservation. Called them once a few days in advance and failed to get one – I was advised that one needs to call at least a week in advance. Tried again another time as a walk-in, and of course, there … Continue reading Riders Cafe, Bukit Timah Saddle Club

Omakase Burger, Turf City

Hello everyone, Merry (third day of) Christmas! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas this year. I had a pretty good one – in fact, I enjoyed the simple, yummy lunch I had on Christmas Day itself so much that I decided to churn out a quick post about it. Headed to Omakase (Japanese for “Chef’s choice” or “let the chef decide”) Burger on Tuesday with the boyfriend after hearing good things … Continue reading Omakase Burger, Turf City

Royal China, Raffles Hotel

Took my family out for lunch one nice Sunday afternoon, and decided to try out Royal China at Raffles Hotel. Heard pretty good things about it, though reviews on Hungrygowhere seemed to be rather mixed. So we went there, and had a pretty good experience – firstly the ambience and design were really nice, classy and modern with a light blue and white colour scheme – much … Continue reading Royal China, Raffles Hotel
