City Hot Pot @ One Raffles Place

Imagine enjoying a hearty hotpot meal while basking in the beautiful sunset view at Singapore's Central Business District (CBD). That's what you can expect at City Hot Pot Shabu Shabu. I haven't visited many hotpot restaurants around Singapore so I had no expectations stepping into City Hot Pot. As we got the City Hot Pot, the friendly wait staff recommend the Set B ($60.99) for us to try. It's a steal and more than enough food for 2. After we've gotten your choice of meat an

BeGin Bar, Upstairs of The Penny Black @ Boat Quay

We recently tried BeGin’s amazing British Indian bar bites and it’s the perfect accompaniment to their cocktails they serve here. Not every drink has a gin-base, but each are just as delicious as the other. The drinks are made with plenty of local ingredients, while staying true to its British Indian identity. One of the popular cocktails we tried was the Koko ($23). Made with cocoa infused rum, orange liqueur and espresso, this drink packs a strong punch and is perfect for c

TOKIDON, Raffles Place

For those of you, like me, working in the Central Business District (CBD) area and always on the look out for the newest food joint to try out, you'd be glad to know that the basement of the Hong Leong Building has been revamped. It is now spotting some interesting new spots and one that we love is TOKIDON. Brought to you by the fine people of Kabuke, located in Telok Ayer (and also one of my most frequent food places), TOKIDON specialises in Japanese rice bowls. Great for th

Qi House of Sichuan, Marina Bay Financial Centre

Have you ever wondered what an active volcano would be like at the tip of your tongue? A hot fiery adventure awaits you at Qi, House of Sichuan! Qi has opened in the middle of the CBD area, right at the Marina Bay Financial Centre. Located conveniently beside its "sister" restaurant Forbidden Duck which we've just visited recently, Qi has its roots in Wan Chai, Hong Kong for over 3 years. (If you're curious about Forbidden Duck, you may click this link here.) Qi has cumul

Eats in the City, One Raffles Place

Having worked in the CBD area before, we are generally spoiled for choice on what to grab for lunch. I had a little tour in One Raffles Place to see what’s the latest that this place has to offer since their renovation. Let's have a look at what you can find in the area. Seattle Pike Seattle Pike claims to have the best Clam Chowder in town, and boy were they right! I dug into to their huge bread bowl of clam chowder. I loved that it was rich and creamy and did not carry such

Burlamacco, Amoy Street

I’ve been to Italy once and I absolutely loved the food there. One of the best foods in Europe, in my opinion. But when I came back to Asia, I found that nothing could compare. I wasn’t sure if it was the ingredients used or the way the dishes were cooked that was slightly “Asianised”. But I was brought back to that summer I spent in Italy when I dined at Burlamacco over at Amoy Street, which is helmed by Chef Gabriele Piegaia from Tuscany, Italy. If you notice, Burlamacco sp

Ho-Jiak, Fuji Xerox Towers

Like its name suggest, the overall aim of this little functional cafe is to feed its customers delicious food. Ho-jiak means very delicious in Hokkien, the primary dialect in Singapore. And Singaporeans who work in the CBD (Anson Road) can look forward to rubbing their bellies over yummy food at Ho-Jiak. The cafe also serves beer and imported craft beers if you want a little buzz over lunch or need a break midday (we promise not to tell your boss!). They carry brands like Hit

Privé, Asian Civilisations Museum

A visit to the Asian Civilisations Museum is a great way to learn about the history of our own country in trade and culture. But a walkthrough the permanent exhibition and learning so much about the history of our civilisation can work up a decent appetite. Or even if you want to fuel up before heading into an exhibition... Which is why Prive at ACM is such a strategic location for the chain of restaurants. Its first outlet is the popular one at Keppel Bay, frequented by many
