Love this little spot tucked away in Dempsey. I wasn’t aware that Open Farm Community was another of chef Ryan Cliff’s projects, but a really chilled out rustic space serving up locally grown greens. The food is real and simple, tasty and the portions are fair. I had a green pea soup served with jamon. […]

So many hipster cafés have sprung up around Singapore and they all have the same vibe: rustic, beautiful environment, instagram perfect food and often times instagram perfect mise en scene like marble top tables, rustic utensils for props etc. The refinery is that kind of café serving hipster price (read: overpriced food), but you’re really paying […]

It’s all the rage these days. After I discovered this in Taipei a couple of months back, I found out there’s a LeTao opening at Hong Kong’s IFC and also in Singapore. Somehow, Hokkaido cheesecake is all the rage in this region. I love them all those Japanese cheese cakes and LeTao does a pretty […]

Catching up with a backlog of photos and plenty of drafted entries and trying to polish up my lightroom skills while I’m at it. My friend Lydia who’s been living in Taipei for 10 years on and off now recommended this spot where she gets her regular beef noodles fix. Rich broth that wasn’t too […]

I haven’t had the chance to spend much time at the National Gallery Singapore, apart from a long degustation lunch at Odette I wasn’t aware that there was local Peranakan celebrity chef Violet Oon with her National Gallery outfit. The space is gorgeous and achingly hip. The food – rich, flavourful with a modern twist. We had […]

The restaurant is both an institution and rite of passage for any aspiring fine dining chef. Monsieur Bocuse is one of the most revered chefs in the world. He is also the only chef in the hospitality industry […]

Going home after living away for more than a decade always feels new and old at the same time. Catching up with old friends at new hip places and going to the same places I’ve been going to for decades with my parents. I still feel displaced, alienated, happy, sad all at once and I […]

I like Korean food, but my husband has less appreciation for it, especially Kimchi that is an acquired taste. He say the smell radiates out of my pores after consuming the pickled vegetables. There are Korean communities all over the world and they bring with them all these delicious sauces and foods. Macau has a […]

Another option for great value, great quality cuts and a very reasonable wine list too. We went for dinner on their first night and I was back for a tasting of their seafood, and can’t wait to return to try the other sides of Mac n Cheese and the corn mash that I have heard […]
