This has become one of my favourite places to dine in Paris. Great Italian food at the * Michelin L’Orangerie, simple, robust dishes in generous portions. They share the same wine list as the *** Michelin Le Cinq, including more Italian options of course. The menu is heavy on plant-based and seafood – giving vegetarians […]
Over the last decade, I’ve been to the Loire Valley many times now on our bi-annual trips home. Here’s the low-down for Prestige Singapore. You can download the pdf here to read the piece.
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 […]
I wrote about L’Assiette for Hong Kong Tatler Dining, on best spots to dine in Paris. I still think about those escargots I had in December. There’s tomato coulis at the depths of the little vessel. Buttery, garlicky topped with a well buttered crouton. The popular items are the hare and paté en croute, but […]
We’ve been here several times now and love the neighbourhood. We’ve dined at the brasserie a few times as well as the 2 Michelin starred Thoumieux restaurant upstairs. It’s where they serve breakfast every morning too. As for the food, it’s definitely on our go to. Brasserie for simple quick fare and the Michelin restaurant […]

Sadly, time was short and the objective like all quick trips to France was to indulge in gastronomy. Table side decor – seasonal vegetables The gorgeous hotel and restaurant chef […]
Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises is where General Charles de Gaulle is buried and on our roadtrip we stopped by to visit friends two summers ago. Chef Jean-Baptise’s one Michelin starred restaurant was closed that day, so we dined at his dad’s brasserie La Table du General instead (incidentally also on the top 10 restaurants list in the area […]
This post is way overdue and I’ve been going through the backlog of photos. We visited the new Terminal 1 by the Pourcel twin chef brothers in Montpellier the autumn of 2016. Since the closure of their Michelin restaurant of Jardin des Sens, with plans to open another fine dining restaurant. Terminal 1 is the […]
Apart from eating, there’s nothing I love more than travelling. And immensely grateful for the privileged life to enjoy all the amazing things the world has to offer. Arts et Métiers museum I remember arriving in Paris for the first time in the summer of 2001 with wide eyed wonder. In the past 16 years, […]
A little list of our Paris favourites when we head back to France annually for Hong Kong Tatler. From fine dining establishments to brasseries across the city of light, these are options that aren’t just for the deep pocketed.
