Marmalade Pantry, ION Orchard

The Marmalade Pantry returns to ION Orchard, reopening on the 4th floor with lots of additions to the menu. I enjoyed my first meal here just before it closed it doors in 2018 so I jumped at the chance to try all the new creations on offer. The Asian-Western restaurant keeps some of its favourites (like the Truffle Fries), and also introduces exclusive dishes to their menu not available at its other Oasia Hotel Downtown and Oasia Hotel Novena locations. For starters, we picke

The LookOut by Gardener's Cottage, Edinburgh

We had the luxury of visiting one of Edinburgh's most attractive restaurants, situated in the heart of the city and at the top of Calton Hill, with a magnificent 360° panoramic view of the city and surrounding landscapes! I'll be honest, my choice to visit this quaintly sized restaurant was primarily for the view, but the quality of food and service clearly didn't disappoint as I'm already planning my next trip back here. We started off with some wine and snacks, to prepare o

‘Tis the season to be jolly! With Christmas just a few weeks away, we’re making a (nice) list of all the best Christmas food in Singapore and places you can head to for some festive cheer! Here are some of the places we think are worth the calories: Goodwood Park Hotel This year, check out the Soy-braised Turkey served with Toasted Almonds and Homemade Chilli Sauce for takeaway at The Deli in Goodwood Park Hotel. The turkey is slow cooked for about two hours to achieve its ju

New Menu @ The Good Batch, Damansara Uptown.

Damansara Uptown is a one stop centre for foodies who are on the hunt for the best meals the Klang Valley has to offer. Be it breakfast, lunch, dinner or even supper, this lively neighbourhood is filled with famous restaurants serving both local and international delicacies. The list can go on and thus making Damansara Uptown a paradise for foodies alike. The Good Batch is no stranger to those who frequent this busy neighbourhood. We had the privilege to try out their new and

Bella by BIG Sunday Brunch, Lorong Kurau

Recently, in the midst of the Chinese New Year madness, we went for a quiet brunch at Bella by BIG. It was one of my first few times to Lorong Kurau to eat and my first visit to Bella. I love it when old shophouses are turned into restaurants like this, because it just has such a vintage charm to it and the layout is often stunning. Bella is no different. It is an eclectic mix of nature and modern interior design without forgetting to keep to its original structure. Upon ente

New 2018 brunch menu at Alter Ego

Alter Ego holds a special place in my heart. I had such a good time the first time round, I’ve been back multiple times after. So when they released their new brunch menu, I couldn’t wait to give it a try. It was a good mix of the familiar and unique, from classic brunch options, to lesser known alternatives, all with an Alter Ego twist. Alter Ego’s Pokécado Toast is a simple yet ingenious idea of turning one of your signature dishes to fit a brunch menu. A sourdough toast to

La Juiceria Superfoods Signature, Nadi Bangsar

La Juiceria’s new outlet in Nadi Bangsar is seriously on-point! I am in love with their stunning chrome and marble details, neon signs, lush greenery and lots of natural light. It is perfect for a business meeting, lunch with family, or just a casual get-together with friends. It also features an adorable play area for young foodies to entertain themselves. Having opened its doors only on January 1, La Juiceria Superfoods Signature has already garnered quite the crowd. It is

Red Tomato, Langkawi

When I recently went to Langkawi for a quick 3D2N getaway, I decided that I wanted to explore more food options to see what was available. The previous trips to Langkawi, there was little opportunity to explore much. So this time, I made it a point to visit all the top spots in Langkawi and of course, Red Tomato had to be at top of that list. Anyone who has been to Langkawi and the Pantai Cenang area will be familiar with Red Tomato. The brand has been around for decades and

Six By Sera, Rangoon Road

If donuts, croissants and cute choux are your kind of thing, then it's time to visit Six by Sera! Located at Rangoon Road (opposite the Brunch Cafe), this mini cafe will be your dream cafe if you have a sweet tooth. As we opened the glass doors to the cafe, we were greeted by the smell of freshly baked, buttery goods. The fragrance got us all excited for the food and desserts we were about to try. What they are famous here for are their savoury donuts, and you would not want

Egmont St Eatery, Wellington New Zealand

In the heart of a city where good food is part of its culture, Egmont St Eatery has definitely earned its place. Many come here for a casual meal and that was what we were here for too. As I saw the facade of the simple establishment, I loved the straightforward and sleek layout, which felt both sophisticated and inviting. With a constantly changing menu, Egmont St Eatery is always looking for creative ways to use the best produce of the season. You can enjoy your meals with

J&D Espresso, Pavilion KL

J&D Espresso used to be one of the few brunch places to go to in the Klang Valley before the proliferation of brunch places happened. They are, what I would call, one of the pioneers. Their first branch opened up in Bandar Utama many moons ago while their newest branch in Pavilion Elite is a recent addition. Taking on a very different approach here, J&D Espresso Pavilion Elite gives off a slightly more upscale vibe - clearly to fit in with its surroundings. But it is done in

Pacamara & Habitat Coffee, Upper Thomson Rd

We dropped by a couple of cafes in Upper Thomson for a quick drink a couple of afternoons. Cafe culture is still going very strong in Singapore and cafes are often packed even at odd hours. But none that we actually have to spend hours queuing up for (I think the concept of queuing for food is just ridiculous, but this seems to be a common occurrence in Malaysia and Singapore and probably some other Asian countries). The interior of Pacamara is very industrial-chic, a common

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

Epicurious, Robertson Quay

I like letting people take the reigns when it comes to choosing places to eat, especially when I am travelling. The locals know best, right? My new partner in foodievstheworld, Estee, chose Epicurious for one of our Sunday brunches. It was both our first times there. Despite some scathing reviews online, I was quite optimistic about this place. Many described it as a casual dining establishment and a family-friendly place. It was a cooling Sunday morning that we chose to head

Bandits, Bukit Damansara

My first visit to Bandits was when it first opened its doors a couple of years back (I can't recall exactly when...) and it was apparently under a different management (or so I am told). So, when KL Food Hunter's Daniel Ang invited me to try the new Bandits menu with him one weekday afternoon, I was eager to see what it had to offer. The first visit I had there left me rather disappointed but this time, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the new management had introduced

The Forum @ Signature Suites, Sri Hartamas

Looking for a great brunch place to head to on the weekends? Your best bet is to make a trip down to The Forum @ Signature Suites Residences in Sri Hartamas. This bright and airy establishment is the perfect location for a birthday celebration as it is really spacious and also has a mezzanine floor. The founders have a strong background in culinary, having been trained in Melbourne. As such, each dish served here is a gastronomic delight and they've carried over the Australia

Calories, Desa Sri Hartamas

On a very hazy Saturday afternoon, we decided to hit up Calories in Desa Sri Hartamas to pile on the calories for brunch. I love the design of the place. It's so clean and yet colourful. They even have a boutique upstairs catering to the Muslimah fashionistas. We started off the meal with a milo dinosaur (RM7). And a hot hazelnut latte (RM12) - which were both run off the mill. I had an eggs benedict with beef bacon (RM18). Matt had the waffle sandwich (RM15) - beef bacon, ch

Amity Cafe, Desa Sri Hartamas

Amity [am-i-tee] Noun Friendship; a peaceful harmony. It is that friendship and peaceful harmony that brought six friends to come together and create Amity. Barely two weeks old, this establishment is fast becoming one of my favourite hang out spots. It is nestled in the still-quiet area of Galeria (by Glomac) Hartamas, just next to the police station. The lot used to be inhabited by Bad by Wood and Steel, for those who are familiar with it. But as you can see, Amity has reva

Review: Podgy & The Banker

The popular breakfast haunt has been around for quite a while now and I have visited the cafe a couple of times before. Today, I had a quick breakfast there with my dad. It reminded me that it is a place of simple fare and very friendly waitstaff. I had the poached eggs with spinach and bread while my dad ordered the omelette. Overall, it is an affordable breakfast joint. But be warned that the portions tend to come small, even for Malaysian standards. Podgy & The Banker 2,
