noma seafood menu

Of the gastronomic experiences in Sweden and Denmark, Noma, unfortunately, was my least favourite. I just didn’t get the hype around the food nor the brand it has built with a loyal following. More images here. It wasn’t a dining experience I was used to – you’re not allowed to go to the toilet as […]

My piece for SCMP after my last Scandinavia gastronomy trip in January eating in Sweden and Denmark, featuring two Michelin stars Faviken that sadly closes the end of the year and three Michelin stars Geranium. Noma was my least favourite of the restaurants I visited and it certainly didn’t live up to its hype. I […]

I am a creature of habit and one of those people eating the same favourite dish at restaurants that I frequent regularly, and usually in the same seat.  Venturing out of my comfort zone takes a fair bit of effort and this January, one of my best friends planned her birthday trip to hit several […]

I LOVED Lisbon and often think about how nice it would be to have a summer house there, or to dream of retirement where you can get amazing food, drinks, culture,art and design without breaking the bank. My travel story on Lisbon for Singapore’s national broadsheet The Straits Times. It’s behind a paywall, so text below. […]

I haven’t been back to Italy since I left in 2006, then with a heavy heart and began a new chapter in life in Beijing. I forgot how much I miss the food, the fresh coffee and the beautiful produce and friendly wildly gesturing people. We ate wild caught sustainable seafood daily, and it was […]

I was so sad to read that Faviken is closing at the end of the year and so grateful I got to dine there this January. It’s been one of my favourite experiences so far and I was so looking forward to go back with the husband next year. It made January’s dinner all the […]

Last year was my first time in Stockholm for design week, and I was fortunate to visit again earlier this year and dine at Faviken. Semla is this patisserie bread like choux stuffed with frangipane cream that the Swedes eat before shrove Tuesday before the start of Lent. The Swedes are big on Fika their […]

We practically spent the day here, and our one night in Lausanne was primarily to go to this restaurant. We took the degustation menu, but also let greed get ahead of us and took their recommendations to also order the signature pork trotters and poulard de Bresse carved tableside. It was a very strong three Michelin-starred […]

This is a backdated post from 18 months ago (!) Roots has to be my favourite independent restaurant in Macao and I highly recommend it. They also do hydroponics farming for their vegetables in a large warehouse and try to respect slow food as much as possible. The restaurant is elegant and minimalist, with a […]
