Saturdays has taken on a whole new twist with Kwee Zeen’s pink brunch theme. While the regular Sunday Champagne Brunch Buffet still goes on, guests now have an additional reason to celebrate on day 6 of the week. Specially crafted “pink” highlights adorn the largely Mediterranean-themed buffet line up all the way from appetizers to desserts. On top of it all, indulge in glasses of Domaine Ott Rose wines and relish in the moment. And if there is space, look out for some of those specially handcrafted chocolate truffles, you will definitely find them worthy of the calories. […]

The Matriarch Returns: Ellenborough Market Café Reopens

By | August 5th, 2016|Categories: Buffet, Clarke Quay, Ellenborough Market Cafe|Tags: , |

On my first visit to the Ellenborough Market Café, I ate so much durian pengat and other assorted desserts that my parents barred me indefinitely from returning. That was fifteen years ago. Of course, I was thrilled when I received an invitation to its dinner buffet recently: First, I was excited to finally eat that forbidden dessert again, and second, I was curious about how the restaurant was after its extensive renovation. […]

Enjoy a teppanyaki experience at Teppan Bar Q, Robertson Walk!

By | August 3rd, 2016|Categories: Clarke Quay, Fusion, Japanese, Teppan Bar Q|Tags: , |

Teppanyaki has seldom been one of my to-go cuisine styles when the Japanese gastronomic crave kicks in. Instead, when the mood calls, I would opt for a good ol’ kaiseki, sushi, ramen, or to even the more elaborate omakase. Perhaps this is due to my experiences when much younger, where teppanyaki was frequently associated with the thought of having beansprouts cooked in a myriad of sauce and smoky aromatics. Though I can now appreciate the nuances in Teppanyaki (where there are both Western and Japanese styles), my visit to Teppan Bar Q at Robertson Walk for some Spanish-Japanese teppanyaki re-introduced me to a whole new world which I’ve never really took time or the effort to explore.

There are steaks, and then there are Florentine steaks; two sides of sirloin and tenderloin, joined by a majestic T-bone. This luxurious cut of meat is beef presented at its finest. […]

Big Lazy Chop (大懒排): A Master of Sauces!

By | July 23rd, 2016|Categories: Big Lazy Chop, Local|Tags: |

Big Lazy Chop is perhaps the place to be at for dishes that get really saucy. From crowd favourites such as the Salted Egg Yolk, to the surprising lip-smacking delight of Butter Champagne that wonderfully coats the pieces of large ribs, Big Lazy Chop certainly has won my attention hands down. The bistro-restaurant is helmed by Singaporean Head Chef Oh Ah Lek, who comes with 37 years of experience in Asian cuisine, including time as the Head Chef of Fortuna Hotel in Vietnam. It is clear that for all the dishes I tasted that night, this is one place that I will want to make a return visit, especially with the eclectic mix of awesome Chinese cooking, craft beers and curious art pieces that adorn the walls.
