I’ve been to Zurich once very briefly crossing the German border nearly 20 years ago, so it was really nice to be back and get taken around by my local Swiss German friend. There’s so much to be said about Zurich, but I think it’s better to leave you with snippets of my trip in […]

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.

We’ve had many lovely meals at the Restaurant and Mr chef stocks up on his wine collection at “Le Nez” the wine shop just behind the restaurant. We always pop in here for lunch when we’re visiting family in the south in Carpentras. We’ve dined more casually al fresco in the Summer, but it seems […]

We made a day trip down from Monaco, a 20minutes drive down the coast […]

I am so late with posts. I’ve gone and returned from France twice now and didn’t get down to writing about Jamin. Late last year, we had lunch at this wonderful restaurant helmed by chef Hervé Rodriguez. It’s also the original location of the first restaurant of the late chef Joel Robuchon. He opened Jamin in 1981 […]

I’ve been to Test Kitchen twice now – an interesting concept that brings in different chefs to cook for a couple of days. The first was an uneventful dinner by Rice Paper Scissors quite a while back and I didn’t have any desire to to go back since, but my Malaysian friend coaxed me into […]

My story, a double page spread was out in yesterday’s Straits Times, it’s behind a paywall so I’m sharing it here as I always believed travel tips and info are best shared to enhance other people’s trips and experiences. All the photos were taken by me except the Starbucks Roastery and Bvlgari hotel’s pool.   […]
