Bar Cicheti, Keong Saik

Spring is here! Although you can’t feel it in Singapore’s year-round sunny weather, you’d get the chance to taste it. Bar Cicheti is introducing a spring menu that pays homage to the sweet and hearty harvests of Italy. The new menu is created as a tribute to the love for spring in Italy of all three partners of Bar Cicheti -- restaurateur Liling Ong, chef Lim Yew Aun and sommelier Ronald Kamiyama. As Singapore’s first homegrown pasta and wine bar, I came expecting handmade pa

Mangiiare Dine and Bar, Bangsar

Tucked away in a little corner along Lorong Kurau, Bangsar, Mangiiare Dine and Bar is a welcoming sight, with it's open aired store front and cosy interior. The intimate restaurant, with less than ten tables downstairs and a bar and private dining area upstairs, has a casual atmosphere, making it the perfect place to relax and unwind. Paired with sumptuous modern Italian food, and a glass of wine, it is the perfect recipe for a good night out. Mangiiare has a number of tradit

Me Famiglia, Kepong

Kepong is known for many things; Bak Kut Teh, family style chinese restaurants, epic traffic jams, and being generally far away from everything. You don’t exactly think of western or european cuisine when it comes to hunting for food in that area. So when we got the invite to try out a little Italian restaurant in Kepong, our interest was definitely piqued. Me Famiglia is a small neighborhood restaurant located in Taman Usahawan Kepong. The business, which started 11 years ag

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

An evening with Michelin guest Chef, Igor Macchia @ Favola Le Meridien, KL

Sinfonia Ristorante, Victoria Concert Hall, Singapore

"Sinfonia", the italian word for Symphony, is the most appropriate word to describe this new culinary voyage Sinfonia Ristorante has to offer. Formerly known as FOO'D by Davide Oldani, Sinfonia has undergone a branding revamp by offering its guests a new unique gastronomic experience through contemporary Italian cuisine.

The Famiglia, Damansara Uptown

Ever come across an Italian-Western cafe? That’s right, not a restaurant. A cafe. Established just 4 months ago, The Famiglia at Damansara Uptown has a very different ambience compared to your traditional classic Italian restaurants. The modern and intimate setting is perfect to enjoy a chilled-out lunch break, or even a dinner party with friends and family. The first thing that I noticed upon arrival was its simple and minimalist interior. The wooden tables and chairs gives

Radio Alice, London

I ventured out from Hoxton tube station and found Radio Alice to be a quick 10 min walk from the station. It had an interesting vintage vibe befitting of its atmosphere inside. I was really excited to try Radio Alice because their style of sourdough pizza was born in Bologna, Italy. Two brothers, Matteo and Salvatore Aloe started making pizzas in 2010 there and had decided to bring their creations to London. I loved the way the place was set up inside and outside. There was c

Domvs by Gabriel Fratini @ Sheraton Towers, Scotts Road

“What do we eat for dinner?” Such questions haunt me almost every day. I know most who are like me who are always indecisive when it comes to picking out what to eat. And when you head into a restaurant, you’re faced with another headache of what to have from the menu. This is especially when the restaurant has an extensive menu and you just want to eat everything off it. Hence, the Omakase style dining has been introduced by the Japanese. This way, you just walk in and tell

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

Sapore, Persiaran Ampang

Anyone who knows me well would tell you that I love Italian food. So of course I jumped at the opportunity to review one of Ampang’s most authentic Italian Spanish restaurant, Sapore. The thing I love most about Italian cooking is the fresh and vibrant flavours that showcases the beautiful ingredients used in cooking the dish, and Chef Fabio Ruggiero does just that. Chef Fabio is the man behind the restaurant, hailing from Italy’s Puglia region, he has worked in several 5-sta
