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 am falling quite far behind blogging again as I am knee deep in work. Still playing catch up on travel and eating posts from the last couple of months and still scheduling a couple more from last summer! The National Gallery Singapore is a stunning space and worth a visit just for the architecture. […]

We’re shifting gears a little as I catch up on our summer road trip still sorting through photos to get up to date. Our local Burgundy friends took us to a lovely brasserie in Beaune for lunch Bistro du Bord de l’eau. It is also attached to a 1* Michelin gourmet restaurant, and I suppose dinner would […]

The Ritz Carlton is a quiet little enclave and possibly my new favourite spot. Love the 51 Lounge with great cocktails, service is always excellent, and here at the Café I am spoken to in different languages by different waitstaff (French, English, Cantonese and Mandarin), which is all great and reflects a very diverse team, since […]

Year end de-cluttering and trying to finish up my food and travel posts before end of 2014! I’m revisiting lots of photos from our last trip back to France in September. We had a quick and very enjoyable lunch at Jean François Piège’s Thoumieux brasserie, which I’d highly recommend as a pitstop before hitting the shops […]

A very belated post from our last trip back to France in September caught in the middle of the Air France strike which gave us an extra day in Paris along with the inconvenience, but I choose the positives about it all. So, the best meal of our trip was at 3 Michelin Starred L’Astrance […]

  A few summers ago we ate at the brasserie in St Germain at Le Chardenoux which was great, but I much prefer Le Quinzième. The husband worked with chef Cyril over a decade ago when they all began their promising start at Le Jardin Des Sens helmed by the twin Pourcel brothers. That same […]

As the trend continues with modern French bistros that have set up shop in Hong Kong from France, Serge et Le phoque (Serge and the Seal) is one of my restaurant crushes in 2013 – the food here is a pristine 2* Michelin faultless (with chef Christophe Pelé, formerly of 2* La Bigarrade in Paris at […]

We made scampi penne and here’s what we did with the heads and shells-maximising on the flavours of the sea, we made use of every part so that none of the good stuff go to waste. And as you can see mascarpone (and often creme fraiche) is our best friend, and they kind of hang […]

Sorry, it’s been short and hardly insightful food blog posts of late as I haven’t actually had time to sit down or digest what I’ve been doing or eating. There’s been many exploring adventures, still lots of eating and just not enough time to sleep. I’m in the middle of a big move, cat included […]
