New concepts @ Picnic, Wisma Atria

Picnic Food Park in Wisma Atria recently unveiled 3 of their brand-new exciting concepts, which we had the exclusive pleasure to try out. Whipping out an insatiable variety of both Japanese and local flavours, their new line-up includes Kumo Keiki’s coveted Japanese rice flour soufflé pancakes from Tokyo, as well as Dai 福 ku (Daifuku) by Seizan – another partnership between Picnic and Two-Michelin Kaiseki restaurant Seizan, Tokyo, which offers fully-customisable Daifuku, a fi

New menu @ Sun with Moon Japanese Dining & Cafe, Wheelock Place

In conjunction with their 14th anniversary in Singapore, acclaimed Japanese restaurant Sun with Moon is introducing brand new dishes to their menu with a fresh twist on some classic favourites. It has only been a few months since our last visit to Sun and Moon, but we were excited to try the latest additions to the restaurant. We started with a serving of Kaisen Yukke ($13.80) with crunchy seaweed on the side. Freshly-diced salmon, tuna and yellowtail sashimi tossed in a rich

Kyushu Cuisine @ Sun with Moon Japanese Dining & Cafe, Wheelock Place

I have always been intrigued by the precision and simplicity of Japanese cuisine. Situated most south-west of Japan, Kyushu is Japan’s third largest island home to a wide range of seasonal produce. This island has an excellent reputation for its food across Japan. The latest Kyushu Fair menu is specially prepared by Executive Chef Toshio Sawai. Chef Sawai’s illustrious culinary career had its beginnings in Kitcho, one of the most luxurious and reputable Japanese restaurants i

D9 Cakery High Tea Buffet @ Hilton Singapore

After a busy week of work it's always good to take a break and wind down with your family and friends. We strolled pass the Hilton's lobby with a showcase of D9 Cakery's handcrafted cakes by Executive Pastry Chef Cindy Khoo and entered the restaurant with a long table displaying an array of infused TWG iced teas. This was certainly a perfect way to start the weekend! As Lau Tzu says, "Tea is the elixir of life". This is no ordinary high tea! The buffet line-up presents over 3

JUMBO Seafood Restaurant, ION Orchard

Singapore’s favourite homegrown seafood restaurant, JUMBO Seafood, has opened its newest outlet at ION Orchard, marking its sixth JUMBO Seafood outlet in Singapore.

Drinks at Komyuniti @ YOTEL, Orchard

Komyuniti is a new chic and unique dining experience brought to you by YOTEL. If you’ve been following us closely, you’d know that we were pretty overwhelmed by the sheer amount of food and drinks we were served when we came here to dine. So, we decided to split the food and drinks into two articles. Click here to check out the food. Apart from the amazing food here, Komyuniti has launched its first cocktail programme under its F&B manager As’ad Isnin. We had (much more than)

Food at Komyuniti @ YOTEL, Orchard Road

This dynamic duo is out on a mission to bring guests on a journey with their various experiences, inspirations and memories.

New ramen offerings at Tsuta Ramen, Orchard Road

Tsuta is back again with two brand new ramen in their menu – the Tori Paitan Soba, a chicken ramen, that comes in both original and spicy options. Along with these new ramen, there are some new side dishes for you to try out too! These new additions will be on the menu from 29 June 2018 (Friday). Now let’s take a look at some of the new offerings. First, we had the Edamame ($4.80), which basically is a bowl of boiled peas. BUT NO! This is so much more. As a lover of this heal

Hans Im Glück, 362 Orchard Road

Hans Im Glück is a celebrated gourmet burger chain in Germany, with Singapore being their 50th outlet under their belt and their first outlet outside of Europe. Known for their burgers made fresh with healthier ingredients and with a wide variety of options, you’ll be mistaken to dismiss it as just another burger joint. The name Hans Im Glück comes from a popular German fairy tale of the same name, which is a big influence on the lush and whimsical meets modern interior desig

B Burger, Orchard Cineleisure

I’d seen the place circulating on my social media for weeks! But being (mostly) based in KL, it’s hard for me to just drop everything and pop by Singapore to try out a place that’s caught my attention. Thankfully, I had a trip I couldn’t miss and found myself in Singapore over a weekend. I knew I had to set aside time to try B Burger. So on a Sunday afternoon, I slid into one of their bright and welcoming booths to indulge in some burgers. I’ve been to quite a few burger plac

d'Good Cafe, Ngee Ann City, Orchard Rd

I’ve always had trouble finding good and affordable food in malls. That’s why when I chanced upon d’Good Café, I was relieved that I finally had a go-to place for when I’m feeling peckish after some retail therapy. Decked in very British-esque deco, you’d immediately forget that you’re dining in a mall. There are several interesting things about d’Good Café. One of which is that it does not only serve as a restaurant, but also an academy for those of you looking to be a coffe

Kam's Roast, Pacific Plaza

If you're ever in town and you're looking for some good Asian food to dig into, Kam's Roast is a good choice as it is located at Pacific Plaza (directly opposite from Scotts Square). Though it is not your typical big Chinese restaurant, it gives off a really cosy feel and at times can come off a little crowded, but that is the charm of it all. It will make you feel as if we are eating in Hong Kong. So even if you can't go to the original Kam's in Hong Kong (which boasts a Mic

Mie Prefecture Fair, Japan Food Town

Japan Food Town is always takes the spotlight whenever we think of fresh seafood and meat produce from the land of the rising sun, ever since its launch in Singapore. Rang Mang Somen Set ($13) @ Rang Mang Shokudo (#04-54) From 1 to 7 December, Japan Food Town will be running its Mie Perfecture Fair. This event's signature highlight will Mie's famous produce such as the award-winning Matsusaka wagyu beef, Ise-ebi lobsters (Japanese spiny lobsters or king lobsters), and freshly

Makan@Jen, Hotel Jen Orchardgateway

Funny story about our review at Hotel Jen... We went to the wrong Hotel Jen at first. We autopiloted towards Hotel Jen in Tanglin because we had been there before and assumed we'd be dining there again. But when we finally made our way to the right Hotel Jen at OrchardGateway, it got our appetites raring to go. Much like their Tanglin location, Hotel Jen at OrchardGateway is also a quirky, modern hotel with a very young and innovative facade. Makan@Jen is the most appropriate

Sacha & Sons, Mandarin Gallery

I think my growing belly is a testament to how much good food I've been having lately - especially in terms of sandwiches and meat dishes. Going around Singapore with different groups of friends has exposed me to a lot of new places to eat that I normally wouldn't know about otherwise. This trip I've gotten to try quite a number of halal-friendly places, including kosher deli Sacha & Sons in Mandarin Gallery. Walking in, it was slightly reminiscent of Katz in New York (yes, t

Travel: Singapore

I was born in Singapore and raised there for 9 years. I later returned to the island state for university. So, I never really considered it a holiday destination until I started working and visited Singapore as a working adult. The streets are clean, the people walk at a brisk pace and Orchard Road is saturated with shopping malls. But having watched the Marina Bay Area transform from barren land to the spectacular sky-scraper paradise it is now, I must say Singapore has come
