After a much anticipated wait, award-winning celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has finally opened his restaurant Bread Street Kitchen in Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands. Offering a selection of classic and reinvented British European delights that are inspired from the brand’s London flagship restaurant, Bread Street Kitchen seems ready to excite the Singaporean palate. Indulge in items such as the Spicy Tuna Tartare, Potted Salt Beef Brisket to even familiar favourites such as the Traditional Fish & Chips to even the good ol’ Lamb Chops. Finish off the meal with a selection of desserts and a highly recommended Chocolate Fondant with Salted Caramel and Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. In a nutshell, Ramsay’s culinary style for Bread Street Kitchen offers a well-rounded experience with flavours that come together, leaving one a sense of comfort with each bite. […]
After a delightful first visit to Adrift at the Marina Bay Sands, I found my way back to the restaurant for dinner. From the experience, I must say that dinner was a mesmerizing affair. Each dish was crafted to share, and brimming with flavours that leaves you craving for more. I was particularly enchanted with items such as the Fried Oysters, King Crab Melt, Grilled Corn and the Salt and Pepper Squid. And with each dish being reasonably priced for the thought and finesse put into it, it made the entire visit all the more memorable and delightful.
The town of Kushiro is perhaps most famous for its massive wetland that lies just north of the city. Kushiro Shitsugen Wetland is the largest wetland in Japan, designated as a National Natural Monument in 1967. It was once part of the sea but after the waters receded, peat started piling up on residue lake: forming the current wetland’s structure that is rich in biodiversity. Brian and I started our exploration early in the morning by hopping onto a bus that took us past Kushiro’s suburbs and right out of town. […]

For the second half of my trip, I made my way off Hokkaido onto the main Japan island of Honshu. After journeying via Shinkansen through Aomori, Morioka, Sendai and a pit stop at Tokyo, I took a short escape to Karuizawa in the Nagano prefecture to soak in some nature at the Prince Hotels and Resorts. Karuizawa is an upscale resort town located at the foot of Mount Asama. With the resort situated about 1000 metres above sea level, my stay there was pleasantly delightful as Tokyo welcomed a much warmer and drier weather. Access to the resort town is also relatively easy from Tokyo as the Hokuriku Shinkansen that services the town completes the entire journey in slightly under 90 minutes. The resort is a popular place to be at as various outdoor activities are made available throughout the year. From tennis, hiking, cycling, golf to even skiing and ice skating, this is the destination for those wanting a trip to Japan but also to escape to a refined solace and some classy ambience. […]
