LITTLE FISH SHOP in Nex Mall at Serangoon Central

The Little Fish Shop isn’t a shop selling aquarium fishes but a seafood restaurant in the suburban mall Nex. Cute name. My friend works around the area and he said this fishy place is probably one of the more presentable restaurants for a proper western meal with his corporate associates. So it’s business-friendly. It is…

WILD HONEY in Mandarin Gallery

When Mandarin Gallery first opened their doors a few years ago, I remember being one of the first few customers of Wild Honey and somewhat surprised that they only served all-day breakfast sets. I thought they were very brave to be so focused on the type of food they wanted to offer. I recalled having…

ICE CREAM CHEFS at Upper Thomson

Just a stone’s throw away from my home, there is a fairly new ice cream shop called Ice Cream Chefs. Modeled closely to the likes of “Cold Stone”, Ice Cream Chef allows you to choose your flavours, toppings, and mixes them on a cold slab in front of you. The difference is that they feature…

GENKI SUSHI in Orchard Central

I wasn’t really in a mood for Japanese and had my eyes on a nice warm Quiznos sandwich, but my friends convinced me to detour into Genki Sushi. No regrets. The quality of the sushi here was surprisingly good though it would have been perfect if they had a wider range of sushi. The dessert…

4FINGERS Crispy Chicken in ION Orchard

4Fingers serves one of the best fried chicken wings in town. It is described as Korean themed cuisine from the streets of New York City. The wings come in 2 flavours – Soy Garlic and Spicy. Both are equally good though the Spicy version is stronger in taste and savorier. I personally prefer Spicy. The…

BOON TONG KEE in Balestier Road

Boon Tong Kee is known for their chicken rice but over the years, many regulars like myself will be quick to assert that it’s not just their luscious fowls that keep us coming back. As appetiser, we got a little handful of soft steamed peanuts (S$2) and another small handful of char siew (grilled pork)…

Breakfast at JONES THE GROCER in Dempsey Hill

Jones the Grocer at Dempsey Hill seems to have customers all day round, throughout the week. Even during weekday mornings, when Dempsey Hill seems asleep, Jones would already have a handful of customers enjoying a cuppa or a hearty breakfast. It gets a lot more crowded on weekends and finding seats tend to be more…

Ayam Penyet at RESTO SURABAYA in Far East Plaza

I found a new place in Orchard to have Ayam Penyet – Resto Surabaya in Far East Plaza. This restaurant seems less popular to the Ayam Penyet restaurant a few doors away but my friends and I find the food here better. If you don’t want a fried dish, you have to try the healthier…

PARADISE DYNASTY in Ion Orchard Singapore

Paradise Dynasty “Legend of Xiao Long Bao” was probably the first Chinese restaurant here to offer an interesting and somewhat exotic range of fillings, for traditional steamed dumplings. I usually order the assortment of 8 different dumplings (S$13.80). But beyond the xiao long baos, Paradise Dynasty serves really good food. I’ve been there 3 times…

COCOTTE in Wanderlust Hotel Singapore

I have to start by saying that the Croque Madame (S$18) in Cocotte is one of the best I’ve tried. Well, I may not have tried 1000 different types of Croques to convincingly conclude that this is the best, but it was fantastically good and the one dish I keep telling all my friends about.…
