313 Somerset just got sweeter with the opening of Japanese-Italian café Dolce Tokyo. And also more Japanese with surrounding shops like Lowry’s Farm and Uniqlo at Level 3 (which look like where I can get my entire wardrode from).

What’s the next big thing in Singapore for food? Looking at new Japanese cafes such as Maccha House, Dolce Tokyo, Hoshino Coffee, Saint Marc’s, Tsujiri Tea House and Nana’s Green Tea (so many!), I think it is Matcha.

Hilton Singapore may not be that immediate place you would think of when you crave for ‘Italian’, but its flagship restaurant il Cielo does serve some of the best contemporary Italian dishes around.

Kiseki Japanese Buffet Restaurant – Mega Buffet at Mini Prices

Singaporeans will queue for a few things: buying 4D, Korean pop concert, and Japanese buffets. Kiseki Japanese Buffet Restaurant which used to be at Heeren (and didn’t exactly get the best of reviews), opened up with new life at Orchard Central.

Recently, I have been a “date guru” of sorts. Not just food anymore. People asking me where to bring their girlfriends on a first date, first month anniversary, first year anniversary etc etc. Actually, I rather not recommend as I would never want to be guilty of recommending a ‘wrong’ place and spoiling that date […]
