A meal at Torikin is as much a gastronomical adventure as it is a performance. With a restaurant name such as “Chicken Gold”, it probably comes as no surprise that the restaurant’s specialty is the Hakata Mizutaki – a healthy hotpot chicken dish that is rich in both collagen and fibre. The Japanese restaurant is the first overseas outlet of the original restaurant chain based in Fukuoka, Kyushu. Tucked away at a cosy corner of Crown Centre at Bukit Timah, you might just miss it if not for the graceful Japanese lanterns that bear the restaurant’s name in kanji. Curious about the experience?

And if you’re interested in a little bite to share during the afternoons, tuck in to their Sissi’s Pastry Delights – a royal tea set for two to share at $28++. […]
Although I used to visit Pan Pacific Orchard for their 10@Claymore buffet over the years, it never really struck me that there was another restaurant in the basement attached to the hotel building. Sopra Cucina located directly behind Palais Renaissance offers diners a European dining experience unlike any other restaurant. Discover the lesser known parts of Italian cuisine from the regions of Sardinia, Naples, Sicily, Milan and more with the restaurant’s revamped menu of signature dishes like the Biscotto di Percorino and the Porcheddu Sardo (Sardinian roast suckling pig). It is cuisine, both homely and a feast, and something that will definitely tantalize your tastebuds.
After a short hiatus for about six months, Colony at the Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore is now officially open! While its predecessor Greenhouse is well known in the buffet scene, Colony is set to embrace new heights (and stomachs) with its expanded kitchen and culinary styles. Up to eight different conservatory kitchens will be featured in the restaurant. Each of them will detail a food narrative of the culinary journey and heritage that transformed Singapore through the years. Couple that experience in a setting that is almost too gorgeous, what you have here is the next buffet place to be at this upcoming festive season.
When it comes to enjoying a good spread of Indian cuisine, one would hardly imagine Marina Bay Sands as the place to be at. However, 4 year old Punjab Grill helmed by Chef Javed Ahamad is one exception to the rule. Traditional Indian dishes is only part of the main fare offered at the restaurant, with the other being a complex offering of contemporary Indian haute cuisine. At its heart, the restaurant features dishes that are from the Northwest region such as Lahore, Peshwar, Rawalpindi, Kabul, Amritsar, Multan and Patiala. With exciting, robust flavours paired with an imaginative blend of the occasional Western ingredient, Punjab Grill is a restaurant well worth visiting to satisfy your modern Indian cuisine craving.

With the sharp filament lights brightly illuminating the prime rib’s gorgeous roasted golden brown surface, it was perhaps a sure sign that this was a buffet well worth tucking into. The Carvery is Singapore’s latest buffet spread to whet the appetite of meat lovers. Located on the 7th floor the Park Hotel Alexandra (right […]
Exquisite omakase restaurant Ki-Sho has expanded its service and now includes the new boutique bar Kakure, located on the second floor of the restaurant bungalow. After a first breathtaking visit to Ki-Sho, I was intrigued in what else the brand could offer. Kakure, envisioned as an intimate bar experience, boasts one of the largest sake lists in Singapore, specially curated by Ki-Sho’s chef Kazuhiro Hamamoto, and the restaurant’s two kikisake-shi John and Makoto. Unique to Kakure is a sake range that focuses on handcrafted liquors that are not widely available, and each of these sakes are brought in limited quantities. Pairing each sake with the bar’s omakase selection is an art in itself, making each experience and visit one that is truly unique. With a cozy dining and drinking experience, one where you get personalized attention from the sake sommelier, Kakure is the place to be at for aficionados of Japanese culinary and beverage finery.
