Black Nut – Asian Inspired Bar Bites at Emerald Hill, Juicy Har Cheong Kai

“Black Nut” is the name of a “raunchy, rojak” gastropub at Emerald Hill. The name comes from buah keulak, a common ingredient of Peranakan cuisine, possibly to pay tribute to the roots of its location. Don’t think otherwise. Location of Black Nut is opposite Somerset MRT, at the “heritage party stretch”. The entire décor is […]

PasarBella – Gourmet Space Opens At Suntec With NYC Food Truck Type Selections

PasarBella at The Grandstand is impressive in terms of vibes and traders variety, but perhaps disadvantaged by a slightly inconvenient location. The newer PasarBella @ Suntec on first impression, happened to be quite the reverse – centralized location at Suntec City, but the food stalls overall seem to lack some kind of variety and therefore […]

The Singapore Flyer Premium Sky Dining – An Experience Both Romantic & Beautiful

Admittedly, this is my first time up the Singapore Flyer, Asia’s largest Giant Observation Wheel, for a unique (and romantic) Sky Dining experience. Let’s see… a 4-course menu, a personal in-flight host, in the comfort of […]

The Chicken King – Salted Egg Chicken and Orh Nee Fries At Toa Payoh Central

Opened by the folks behind Orchid Live Seafood Restaurant, The Chicken King is a local Western food concept shop alongside a row of eateries at Toa Payoh Hub (at the back row). Wah!

Spago By Wolfgang Puck – Californian Dining At MBS Level 57 SkyPark

Frequent diners at Marina Bay Sands should be familiar with celebrity Chef Wolfgang Puck, whose steakhouse CUT enjoyed much positive reviews (which I do think serves some of the best steaks in Singapore). The next talk of the town should be Spago, opened on Level 57 of MBS SkyPark featuring two concepts – a fine […]
