Alma by Juan Amador, Goodwood Park Hotel

With their third anniversary, Alma by Juan Amador is introducing a slew of brand new dishes with their set menus at attractive prices. There is no denying the exquisiteness and quality in their dishes that earned them a Michelin Star three years in a row, I did go in with very high expectations. Before we start, I wanted to give a quick mention of Executive Chef Haikal. We learned that Chef was in a life-changing accident in 2015 that left him paralyzed from the neck down. He has since made leaps and bounds with his recovery but his continued passion and ability to create exquisite dishes is a testament to his talent and we wish him a speedy recovery. On to the food. The new dinner set menus

Two Chefs Bar Mexican & Italian, Holland Village

One thing I love about Holland Village is its many amazing food across the expansive area. If you can’t decide between having Mexican or Italian food, Two Chefs Bar is the place to go, as they serve both cuisines! Two Chefs Bar is a pretty cozy spot to pop by and enjoy some drinks too. Go crazy and have an Italian entrée with a Mexican main, if you like. Because that’s what we did! For starters, we had the Caprese, which is a very typical Italian entrée dish, featuring slices of mozzarella cheese, fresh tomatoes and basil leaves, then topped with balsamic dressing. A very simple and fresh dish that opened up our appetites for more dishes to come. There are several types of mains you can choo

Ash & Char, MacCallum Street

Ever since I started working in the CBD, discovering a new hang out spot is one of the things that I look forward to the most. The WEROC Group has recently acquired and relaunched Ash & Char - the refreshed chic gastrobar nestled along the bustling MacCallum Street. I walked past Ash & Char on multiple occasions, their open bar concept is what attracted me to give this new kid on the block a try. With a name like Ash & Char, you'd immediately think of nice charred and tender meat. And that's what you'd get with the Signature Char Siew here. In my opinion, this is possibly one of the best Char Siew I've ever had in Singapore. No red-coloured char siew here! The meat was soft and tender with a
