Angeleno – Chef David Almany From Osteria Mozza Helms His Own

“This taste just as good as Osteria Mozza’s.” It was before we realised that the chef in the kitchen of Italian-American restaurant Angelego is David Almany, previous head chef of Osteria Mozza at MBS. As he walked out of the kitchen just before the dessert, I thought, “He looks familiar.” It was a random choice […]

Imakatsu Boat Quay – Japanese Tonkatsu By The Singapore River

Tonkatsu specialty Japanese restaurant Imakatsu opens another at Boat Quay (first outlet is at Star Vista), featuring a heightened experience with a view of the Singapore River. Katsu curry while watching the world go by? This is quite the life. The original Imakatsu at Roppongi was previously recommended as a Bib Gourmand restaurant under the […]

WANNA CUPPA – Café With Art Deco Design, Garden-Like Setting

WANNA CUPPA has a twangy name, a centralised location near Clarke Quay, an Art Deco design, yet it seems to have slipped past the radar of café hoppers. Or have people generally gotten bored with hopping. I couldn’t let it go unnoticed for sure. As neighbours to Song Fa Bak Kut Teh at New Bridge […]

SSÄM – Korean Meets Mexican Salads, Burritos and Kimchi Rice Bowls

After a trip to New York, I was quite blown away by the food truck culture, especially those offering Korean-meets-Mexican tacos, burritos and kimchi rice bowls. Grubby and hearty. Imagine my delight when I saw SSÄM, which offers this fusion of Korean and Mexican cuisine inspired by popular food trucks in the USA. What you […]

Lamb Cupcakery – Handcrafted Cupcakes, Exciting Flavours

Cupcakes used to be a big fad in Singapore, but have mellowed down, with some core survivors. I remember there used to be a small kiosk called Lamb Cupcakery at Valley Point, and was pleasantly surprised to find it re-open at Marina Bay Link Mall. Handcrafted in batches, made from scratch using quality ingredients such […]

Free the Robot – Oh, Cute. A Robot-Themed Cafe. $3 Truffle Fries?

Sharing the same doors as Bitters and Love is Free the Robot, serving western-style brunch food and coffee in the CBD area. Telok Ayer, that is. With a huge white wooden wall covering up the most part of the cafe, it is almost hard to tell that a cafe is indeed in operations behind that […]

Uma Uma Restaurant & Bar – Ramen, Yakitori and Kushikatsu at Millenia Walk

There was a period of time when Japanese ramen eateries were sprouting in Singapore, though has remained more or less stagnant. I am surprised Uma Uma didn’t open more outlets. They finally did, at the Japanese food street of Millenia Walk. Interesting, it can also be accessed by one end of Marina Square, whichever way […]

National Kitchen by Violet Oon – Burst Of Peranakan Flavours At The National Gallery

Violet Oon has achieved what many Singaporeans would be proud of, and some restauranteurs could have dreamt about with National Kitchen at the National Gallery. This is one restaurant I would be delighted to recommend foreign guests to (if budget is not of a major problem), and hopefully the Michelin inspectors would notice and acknowledge […]

Gallery & Co – Cafe, Cafeteria and Store at National Gallery Singapore

Things are probably still work-in-progress for Gallery & Co at the National Gallery Singapore, a “progressive retail and F&B destination with a bookstore, café, cafeteria, bar and store in a continuous space.” (Read: What To Eat At The National Gallery) Some big names behind the project: Unlisted Collection’s Loh Lik Peng, Foreign Policy Design’s Yah-Leng […]

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 […]
