  • The Glasshouse toasts

    The Glasshouse at Chijmes

    The Glasshouse first came to my attention on Instagram with its beautiful feed of three images. The first, a covered area of work in progress… I was curious. The second, a row of three toasts topped with yummy things… definitely interested! The third photo in their feed, back then, was...
  • Totally Cool Szechuan Yakitori and Cocktails at CHIKIN Bar

    If you’re after a groovy vibe, cool ambience, good food and killer cocktails, try heading to CHIKIN Bar on Bukit Pasoh Road. We were recently invited to a tasting there and even though it was only 5.30pm and the place wasn’t quite pumping just yet, it was an excellent...
  • Chef's Table risotto

    Chef’s Table Friday Lunches

    Of the many places I’ve eaten in Singapore, Chef’s Table still remains one of my all-time favourites. Chef Stephan Zoisl and his team are truly amazing and earlier this year, we had the pleasure of talking to him about how it all began. When Chef Stephan invited me to taste their...
  • Scene Shang

    Oriental Design with Modern Flair – Scene Shang

    The Arab Street area of Singapore is a quaint and lovely destination for tourists as well as locals. It used to be known as the textile centre, but in recent years it has also become the haunt for good Middle Eastern food, funky cafés (like The Hangar) and a...
  • Sushi Kanesaka

    Sushi Kanesaka at Tokyo Ginza

    THIS. The pièce de résistance of my entire trip – two Michelin starred Sushi Kanesaka. I had wanted to try the Singapore outpost (Shinji at St Regis) for ages but the hefty price tag always put me off. However, now that I was in Japan, there was nothing that was...
  • Nouri

    Nouri, “Crossroads Cooking” Influenced by the World

    Nouri is a wonderful dining destination that quietly opened its doors on the 17th of June. Quietly, I say because we went a month ago for dinner while they were still in preview mode. They had respectfully asked us not to post anything on social media until they were open....
  • Missing the Tastes of Singapore in London: C & R Café

    Many years ago, whilst living in London, footloose and fancy free without kids (we call those times BC, i.e. “Before Children”), the Man and I discovered this little hidden gem, surreptitiously tucked away in a wee, cobbled lane in Soho – strictly two persons walking abreast. Needless to say,...
  • FATCAT Ice Cream Bar Butter Beer

    FATCAT Ice Cream Bar, Fab Fun for the Family

    “Butter Beer” was all my Darling Husband (DH) needed say to convince me to haul the kids over to FATCAT in Bedok and check out this ice-cream bar. I was  inspired to write a rave review for FATCAT Ice Cream Bar for the numerous reasons which I will elaborate on shortly. Although,...
  • Bakalaki Singapore

    A Greek Taverna from the Heart – Bakalaki

    Greek food lovers rejoice, there is a brand new restaurant that just opened in Tiong Bahru. It is only five days old but I think it deserves a mention. I was just there for lunch so this review is, literally, hot off the presses and only two hours old....
