Gyoza-Ya in Robinsons Orchard #B1-02A

Robinsons Orchard (The Heeren), has a Gyoza place in its basement. Called Gyoza-Ya, its décor is typical of a Japanese diner but it was really the Gyoza plus other interesting  dishes that qualifies it for many more visits. And they had great service too… another big plus. Both the Yaki Gyoza Park (S$4.80) and Yaki Ebi Gyoza (S$5.80) were delectable.…

GRUB at Bishan Park 1

Nestled in the lush Bishan Park, GRUB is definitely a hard find, literally. We took 30 minutes circling around Bishan park trying to find this chic and casual outfit. But I must admit, it was well worth it. It is truly a gem. Quiet, relaxed and friendly would be my first description of its ambience. A…

The Fabulous Baker Boy at 70 River Valley Road

Who is this fabulous baker boy? I have heard of the brand, but only recently managed to try it. A very catchy name indeed. My curiosity led me to their website and ah… The fab boy is Juwanda Hassim… And no, I don’t know him but yes, I recalled where I heard/saw of him… from a friend’s Facebook.…

Tulips are Edible, The Cliff

I had the privilege to attend a food tasting at The Cliff at the Singapore Resort and Spa Sentosa last week. Visiting Michelin-star Chef Pascal Aussignac introduced a French menu with a tinge of English influence. It was a great gourmet experience, especially when it was shared with wonderful company. Though Chef Pascal has left…

WINDOWSILL PIES at 78 Horne Road

Many many months ago, I had a sweet pie from Windowsill Pies’ temporary kiosk in a mall and I simply loved it. It was only later that I found out they had a very much talked about shop along Horne Road. It is in this vicinity that you will find some other interesting cafes like…

STRANGERS’ REUNION Cafe at 37 Kampong Bahru Road

Updated: 30 May 2014 Strangers’ Reunion has expanded and moved to a bigger space (just beside the old unit). This is a much welcomed change considering the previous space was a little squeezy… cozy, but squeezy. I was very pleased with the expanded food menu plus the QUALITY of the food. We had the Eggs on Toast…

&MADE by Bruno Menard in Pacific Plaza

&Made by Bruno Menard is a great addition to Pacific Plaza, a mall at the start of Orchard road that has lost most of its buzz. It is probably better known now for hair salons and yoga, and music blasting from That CD Shop.  But now there is &Made… thank goodness. The restaurant is small,…

DRIPS BAKERY CAFE at Tiong Bahru Estate

I visited a charming little bakery and cafe in Tiong Bahru recently. Amidst the old shop-houses, Drips Bakery Cafe stood out with its bright, modern yet homely interior. We were greeted by young and somewhat good-looking staff, which I guess made the experience a little bit more pleasant. You can call me shallow but it…
