Social Hour with a Spectacular View at Spago, Marina Bay Sands!

Marina Bay Sands’ Skypark at level 57 is one of the most iconic locations in Singapore. On a clear day, or with the illuminated night sky, the view is breathtaking. Although frequently packed with hotel guests enjoying a dip in the infinity pool, the pleasures of the Skypark is also accessible when one dines at Spago. The critically acclaimed flagship restaurant opened by the renowned chef Wolfgang Puck, Spago promises guests a range of Californian cuisine with global accents. With the space divided between a terrace lounge and a fine dining restaurant, Spago is meant for those seeking a chic spot to spend the night or to have that intimate dining affair. […]

Salt Tapas & Bar Delights With New, Tantalizing Brunch Items!

By |March 28th, 2016|Categories: Brunch, City Hall, Fusion, Salt Tapas & Bar, Spanish|Tags: |

Salt Tapas & Bar by Luke Mangan is proud to launch a new range of hearty brunch delights that seeks to pair in the laid-back Aussie ambience with food that will leave you smiling and knowing that the weekend is here. After a generally receptive first visit with the new menu launched by Executive Chef Ronald Li, the restaurant has expanded into the brunch scene with highlights including the Eggs Berentine with bonito flakes or the decadent French toast with Okinawan ice-cream, clotted cream and mango jam. And with brunch available every Saturday and Sunday from 1130am to 3pm, that gives you time to snooze in a little bit more before heading to town for a little R&R. […]

Scandinavian Flavours at Triple Three, Mandarin Orchard 24th Mar – 3rd Apr 2016!

By |March 23rd, 2016|Categories: Buffet, European, Orchard, Somerset, Triple Three|Tags: , , |

Ever since Noma won the accolade of best restaurant in the world, wresting the title from modernist cuisine stalwart El Bulli in 2010, what soon came to be known as New Nordic cuisine has been thrust firmly into the culinary spotlight. But all that glitters is not necessarily foams, pectin and coniferous herbage; the rise of New Nordic cuisine isn’t just about molecular gastronomy, but has also brought along with it newfound recognition of the quality of produce and heritage of cooking techniques within the region. One of the great privileges of an international city like Singapore is that you really don’t have to travel very far to sample some of the world’s best cuisines. And the even better news? IKEA’s not the only place to get a taste of the Nordics these days. Come March 24th—3rd April, Triple Three at Mandarin Orchard will be launching its take on the smorgasbord with New Scandinavian Flavours, featuring guest chef Markus Dybwad, who has honed his skills at Michelin-starred establishments such as Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck.

Spices Café: A Truly Tasty Harvest

By |March 22nd, 2016|Categories: Buffet, Orchard, Seafood, Spices Cafe|Tags: , , |

Stepping into Spices Café, I was greeted by a cosy atmosphere coupled with a buffet spread that whet my appetite immediately. I mean, who wouldn’t be hungry at the sight of a seafood spread right there? The buffet selection was fairly extensive: a salad and appetizer selection that was good, a respectable dessert section, you get it. But when one goes to a buffet called the Harvest of the Sea, you definitely look forward to the seafood. […]

Decadent Gourmet Burgers and More In The Sky At Cook & Brew, The Westin Singapore!

By |March 8th, 2016|Categories: Cook & Brew, Fusion, Raffles Place|Tags: , |

I may be late to the party but dining at Cook & Brew is one surreal experience worth the recommendation. Perched at Level 33 of The Westin Singapore, the hotel’s in-house gastro-bar is an exemplification of coziness set within a casual and homely environment. Helmed by Executive Chef Aaron Foster, Cook & Brew offers an eclectic mix of dishes on the menu, with a little something from everything that is possibly familiar yet different. I thoroughly enjoyed specialties like the Whipped Buffalo Milk Ricotta and The Montreal Burger, and was also left suitably impressed with the extensive range of beers. This is one gastrobar that has gotten my attention, and will be a worthy choice to hang out with colleagues after work. […]

The Magnifique Sunday Champagne Brunch at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa!

By |March 7th, 2016|Categories: Brunch, Buffet, International, Kwee Zen, Sentosa|Tags: , , |

It is always an adventure to make a trip into Sentosa to dine. Somehow, the physical separation of mainland Singapore to one of its largest southern island seems to suggest a whole different world out there. However, because of its exclusivity, visiting the Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa for its Sunday Champagne Brunch is made all the more exciting. With the promise of good food, a scenery that is almost one with nature and the use of the hotel’s pool till late, brunch perhaps just got a little more wholesome. Still, the allure for such an exciting place is subdued when contrasted with my visits in earlier years. Kwee Zeen’s Magnifique Sunday Champagne Brunch is an exciting affair, especially with the range of 32 cheese and an excellent foie gras station. But the grandeur of its past is perhaps best left to one’s memories – one that I will fondly miss. […]
