Fans of French dining would be very familiar with Immanuel French Kitchen, a humble affordable French restaurant opened in a coffee shop at Bukit Merah. The immense success of his first establishment led to the opening of By The Fire, yet another humble European restaurant. By The Fire's located in a similar hawker setting, inside Alibabar the Hawk...

What with all the newer café-restaurants coining novel ways to distinguish themselves, OMB took it to a whole new level as the very first bacon-centric café in Singapore. From bacon jam, bacon pancakes, pasta with bacon; to bacon ice cream, bacon brownie, and chocolate-coated bacon - OMB promises a bacon coma after each meal.


I poppe...

At the corner of Beach Road and Tan Quee Lan St, on the ground floor of the Marrison Hotel, sits the small and cozy fusion establishment Gastrosmiths. It's not easily spotted if one's not looking out for it; but that's no problem for the peeps at Gastrosmiths.


I remember Gastrosmiths back when they were still The Humble Loaf at...

Wind the clock 5-6 years back, Singapore's café scene was still, quiet, and not nearly as in as it is now. Then major players and trendsetters were places like é PS. Café, Wild Honey, Rider's Café, and not House at Dempsey. While newer spots are definitely kept top of mind, there must be something about older cafés like these that keeps the crowd r...

With the plethora of cafés sprouting in every nook and cranny of this teeny island, town is no longer the hipster hub filled with novel eateries. Most are starting to find it over-priced, unimpressive, even boring.


Though I think reliable would be the more appropriate word.


While the food isn't all new, innovative and instagramable, most...

I don't often make a second visit to any restaurant within a month, unless it's mindblowingly amazing, or downright disgusting. Artistry would belong to the latter. Our first visit was less than pleasant, with horrible sauce-drenched sliders and one of the worst cockatils we've tried. Since we did not manage to try what Artistry was famous for, we...

The proliferation of social media has seen the rise and fall of much F&B establishments - at least newer ones targeted at the hippie café hopping youths. Newbies like Honey Creme and FATCAT Ice Cream have garnered so much social media attention pre-launch, with pictures flooding Instagram, that business have been flying off the charts.

A name like that is an explicit hint to their forte. Boasting premium roasts like their Bone-In Prime Rib that goes at S$1 a gram, a dinner at Carvers is what most carnivores would look forward to. Despite the remarkably high cost, we decided to give Carvers' dinner a shot after being fairly impressed with brunch a few weeks back.


As with our first...

Smack in the heart of town on the 2nd floor of the relatively new mall Orchard Gateway, is the casual Italian trattoria and pizzeria Supply and Demand. It is the second restaurant opened following the success of the Esplanade branch. Boasting a wood-fired oven, this new branch features a huge variety of pizzas spanning 3 pages of their menu. And r...

Bacaro = A traditional Venetian gastrobar, where people stop to enjoy a drink together with little plates of food (cicchetti is similar to the Spanish tapas, but think of it as a regional variation).


This idea of casual dining seems to be increasingly popular, with Morsi and Sorsi launched by Lino Sauro of Gattopardo not too long ago; and now...
