If I was not already so full from the Sichuan noodles I would have had these snacks which are really good. I especially like the pancake filled with minced pork and really spicy chilli oil. You can spot the long … Continue reading
The restaurant is at level 2 of HillV2 and you can dine in pleasant surroundings as the place is filled with light and spacious. For once I didn’t feel bloated after a meal, but it was pretty expensive considering the … Continue reading
Somehow my post about Penang Assam Laksa garnered a lot of hits. It’s strange sometimes which posts turn out to be popular. Usually the least expected ones. Makes me happy though. Went back for another visit because when I mentioned … Continue reading
I’m loving all the new French Cafes in Singapore. Too many to count now but I did a new blog post listing my top picks. And to think all these years we had to make do with Delifrance and their … Continue reading
Was sad to see the Australian restaurant Jules close down. I wonder why, because it was very popular. In it’s place is The Cajun Kings where I’ve found a new favourite – Gumbo. It was my first time trying it … Continue reading
We had Prawn Mee soup recently. I used to prefer this to just plain noodle soup when I was a kid. But this time we had the Ngor Hiang as well, making it the perfect local brunch.
Loved this post by Guillaume with the intriguing title Butterfly. It spoke to me and I am sure most bloggers will face this dilemma too. How much to give in to the temptation for google searchable but boring titles, or … Continue reading
I am so thankful to Imp for recommending this Thai lunch place to me called Nana at Golden Mile Complex aka Little Thailand. I was very impressed by the Tom Yam soup and green curry. Both items were kept piping … Continue reading
Good to see that Ikea is bringing back authentic Swedish brands again. At one point they decided to do everything in-house and there were a lot of appeals from the Swedish community that they preferred the candies and treats they … Continue reading
I pretty much love Parco Millenia for all the authentic Japanese food options. There’s this Go Go Curry Place I haven’t tried yet. The Ramen shop with the cutest design that I’ve had a few times. There’s always a queue … Continue reading
I like that there’s a mini bowl of Udon at Tsuru-koshi, for just S$4. The regular sized one with an egg that looks so good huh?
Since I was last here, the shop seems to have expanded and I’m glad the owner is doing well. I like seeing authentic independent businesses thrive. I am sure that with the Tintin movie out, the interest in Tintin has … Continue reading
Loved the Chirstmas decorations, especially the straw reindeer at Genki Sushi located at Orchard Central. It’s my favourite place for inari sushi and don.
Another reason to adore Ikea. Twenty-four numbered drawers to mark a countdown to Christmas is a lovely idea. It’s called an Advent calendar and costs S$19.90 which is a bit expensive, but it’s such a cool idea for both kids … Continue reading
The first clue that the food here is authentic? The place was filled with Japanese patrons. I hardly see any Japanese patrons at the other Singapore chain outlets. The second of course – the taste. The inari sushi here was … Continue reading
This was from way back in late March when Cold Stone Creamery first opened and I was so excited to try an authentic ice cream from the US, but somehow it slipped my mind and it’s taken me months to … Continue reading
I have been craving for the inari sushi I had in Osaka and I was so excited to find that the one I had at Genki Sushi comes very very close. The difference is in the quality of the sweet … Continue reading
When I first glanced at the store from a metre away I wondered if it was a store selling fake Tintin stuff. As I came closer, I was delighted to see how authentic it was. The first time I saw … Continue reading
Not all of Singapore is swanky and pristine. There’s also gritty, grimy and authentic in every way. One of the oldest estates is Toa Payoh which is right in the middle of the island. This is one area in Toa … Continue reading
