For our last lunch before headed home, we dined at Shirvan, chef Akrame’s latest project. Named after an ancient province in Azerbaijan, the menu is influenced by the spices, stories and flavours of the silk route, peppered with delicious rich flavours of Middle East and the Mediterranean. The space is modern and elegant with an […]

Restaurant Paul Bocuse has been awarded three Michelin stars every consecutive year since 1965 (the same year Singapore became independent!). 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 […]

I came here during their pre-opening and was great to be back. Chino has a no reservations policy and they only take walk-ins, so get there early. Positioned as a modern Mexican place with Japanese cooking techniques, the food is modern and interesting. Dips are fantastic, appetiser portions small – you’d need to order individually, […]

So, I have been travelling a whole lot for work this year and grateful for the opportunities to be out of Macau. But that also meant I haven’t had time to do my Hong Kong sanity runs – since there was less need to be scrambling out to get on the ferry. Thankfully I always […]

Switching gears a little here as I have so many Berlin stories to share and photos of gorgeous blue skies days bicycling all around. The travel diary is coming up. But first, a Portuguese/Macanese restaurant that serves up delicious, fuss free authentic cuisine. Service is friendly, prompt and the pace between your dishes is upbeat […]

This is our default Sunday brunch place when we wake up and don’t know where to go. Aux Beaux Arts is always a good idea and I always end up ordering the same thing, half a dozen of escargots followed by mussels and fries or the chicken stuffed with foie gras. It never fails me. […]

So, the new Hello Kitty restaurant in Hong Kong is the new rage globally and a big hit on social media, so how could I miss the opportunity to visit and write about it – and build more social equity around it? I am fortunate and grateful that I still have sporting gourmet friends who […]

Travelling and spending time in Berlin feels like such a long time ago. One of our gastro highlights was a splurge at one of Berlin’s several one Michelin starred restaurants. A former Jewish primary school for girls turned fine dining without an air of stuffiness. Service is casual – like every trendy hipster in the […]

Someone asked me the other day where’s the best service I’ve ever experienced and it occurred to me that I never got round to raving about our dinner at Le Royal Mansour in Marrakech. The intuitive, white glove seamless non-intrusive service – where your next thought is anticipated before you can voice it and they’re […]

Fado is one of my (new-ish) go to spot for Portuguese food, a little more contemporary, beautiful modern setting with lots of light and they cook certain dishes at your table. It’s a little less heavy than the usual dishes you’d order at the Portuguese restaurants in down. I’ve been here several times now and the […]
