Hide Yamamoto – Mid-Day Kaiseki

Nice long lunches have become a thing of the past now that I have passed the 6-month mark in the company. Today though, was an exception – I had made a reservation at Hide Yamamoto to celebrate a colleague’s birthday. Nested in the heart of where all the celebrity restaurants are at MBS – theRead More

Ember – The Revisit

Now that both K and I are based in Singapore and there is some sort of stability – we are back to our joint culinary adventures once again! The first establishment we visited was Ember (in June this year). I believe Ember has been over-blogged (if there is such a term) – however, I hadRead More

Nam Nam Noodle Bar – Authentic Vietnamese Food in Singapore #11

   THE Vietnamese restaurant in town with the longest queues. I later realized that the queues could be due to its popularity and ….. an inefficient process. You need to stand in one queue to get a table then go to another queue to order and pay. The Wheelock branch was fully packed before noon. The banh miRead More

The Barkery – Homemade Treats for Pets

Happy Birthday to our little furball! We ordered the BD cake and some treats from the Barkery. The ordering process was simple. I placed the order online and received an email shortly to confirm the details.  They were able to accommodate my request to change the icing colour. Delivery was prompt and made personally by the owner, Elizabeth and her daughter.  They gave someRead More

[Billund] No.8 – Finer than expected

First business trip since my return to the corporate world = (severe jetlag + low energy level) * first few days. The first week was spent in Prague where so much was happening I couldn’t figure day from night. Needless to say, I did not have the chance to experience any authentic Czech food nor breath inRead More

Queues, Queues & Longer Queues

It is getting so difficult to avoid long queues for food in Singapore. See below for the three “infamous queues” in town recently. Jollibee Singapore (Image by Sheere Ng, Makansutra)  Jollibee is one of my favourite fast food restaurants and my “must go” whenever I visit The Philippines. I love the juicy beef steaks  andRead More

[Hong Kong] Bo Innovation vs. [Sydney] Momofuku Seiobo

 Bo Innovation (BO) by Alvin Leung – This 2 Michelin starred restaurant helmed by the self-taught “Demon chef” serves extreme Chinese cuisine. Leung (An ex-engineer) is one of the two Michelin chefs in charge of a professional kitchen who did not go through formal culinary training. I met Leung in the Savour event in SingaporeRead More

Fond memories of Breakfasts in [Melbourne]

It’s been three months since my trip to Melbourne and just this morning I found myself missing the one thing that I neglect all too often – breakfast. Since it is not part of the plan to return there any time soon, all I can is to reminisce on my best breakfast experiences … CUMULUSRead More

[New Delhi] McDonald’s – McSpicy Paneer

I like how Mcdonald’s tries to localize their menu in various countries to suit the local taste buds. One of my favourite McDonald burger is the Sichuan burger I had in China. Thus, I’m keen to try the vegeterian burgers unique to India to see how they fare.   McSpicy Paneer Extra Value Meal – The traditional IndianRead More

[Melbourne] Circa The Prince – Modern Elegance

So, here I am – nicely settled in Melbourne. In case you are wondering…nope, I am not calling this home for good. I merely believe in “Carpe Diem” – because watching a tennis grand slam LIVE has always been one of those things on my bucket list…I decided to seize the opportunity since I amRead More
