Hello folks! Sorry for the slow updates. As you know i'm currently based in Canada and guess what! Michelin (not too recently) announced in May that it is expanding into Canada and will start awarding its prestigious stars to restaurants in Toronto! Definitely something to look forward to even though i'm 2h away from Toronto. Fingers crossed that our little bundle will be up for some rides to feed his mama come fall.  I was told by a gf that i simply HAVE TO visit Restaurant Pearl Morissette (RPM) before i pop. They’ve been recognized as one of the best restaurants not just in Niagara ..read more

It's been a while since i updated the blog! Sorry if you've been waiting for the Germany posts. If you've missed the first one, here's our 10-day self-drive itinerary from Frankfurt to Munich. Now here's going a little more in depth on the highlights of the Black Forest. The Black Forest region covers a number of cities and we stopped by a few of these cities when we drove through the Black Forest High Road (Schwarzwaldhochstrasse). This is a scenic route which runs from Baden-Baden to Freudenstadt through some gorgeous ridges and valleys, climbing through Bühlerhöhe, to finally ar ..read more

Hanare by Takayama, specialty Kamameshi restaurant

I'm always on the hunt for decent and affordable Japanese food and my eyes lit up when i heard that Chef Takayama of Takayama has opened a kamameshi specialty restaurant which doesn't break the bank. Kamameshi is also known as "kettle rice", a traditional Japanese rice dish cooked in a "kama" (iron pot). My first Kamameshi was actually at Sun with Moon, which actually serves pretty decent kamameshi too. While Hanare may look like a pricey restaurant located in Takashimaya shopping centre, the prices are really affordable. We sampled the 6-course dinner set menu for 2, which showcases the rest ..read more

Fukui, Omakase at Robertson Quay

As we march towards the hot and humid summer, savour the last taste of the balmy Spring at Fukui, where Head Chef Nick Pa’an presents several multi-course sushi menus curated on a weekly basis. For Spring, feast on a wide variety of seafood and produce. From the sea, you'd have young conger eels, firefly squid, Hokkaido hairy crab, and from the land, some crisp bamboo sprouts and white strawberries. We had the 9-course dinner ($288/pax). Typically, you would have a sushi course, unless you're pregnant like me, or if you can't take raw food. For some sushi items, Chef introduces the addition o ..read more

Bloom Coffee, Siglap

Sandwiches are back in favor or is it just that this pregnancy craving has led me to searching for them? Anyhow, i was rather excited to see that there are more sangas (the Aussie slang for sandwiches) available in the East, this time at Bloom Coffee at Siglap.  The menu is quite limited, focusing on 5 sangas options such as Tonkatsu ($18) and Grilled Mushroom & Eggplant ($17). They have one sweet option, which is the PB & Strawberry Basil ($15) which we heard is a hit or miss. On my first visit, i went straight for the Tamagoyaki Avocado Bacon ($18) as it seemed like the lighte ..read more

Chez Suzette, French-inspired cafe

The trick to having an enjoyable weekend brunch is to go on Sunday instead of Saturday. I think. Especially those in the CBD-ish areas. That or i was really lucky to get a last minute table for early brunch at the popular French-inspired Chez Suzette, which serves classic brunch plates all day long.  We were thankful to be seated indoors instead of the alfresco area on the ground floor. God bless this weather. I've been meaning to drop by after gym at Tanjong Pagar but it's afterall a 10 mins walk under the hot sun, and my jelly legs do object that. A craving for Croque Monsieur (i heard ..read more

Gemma, Modern Italian Steakhouse at National Gallery

11M ago
Celebrating the best of Italian summertime steakhouses, GEMMA is the latest concept of Italian Chef-Owner Beppe De Vito of The ilLido Group. Tucked atop National Gallery Singapore, the 68-seater restaurant is full of old-world charm but not stiffy at all and the prices are a lot more reasonable than some of these other steakhouses around. Lunch sets are only $45/pax and even their dinner sharing menu for 2 would only set you back by $208/pair. I meant to check out Gemma earlier but plans were disrupted several times due to COVID. A random browsing of the Restaurant Week offerings (yes it is s ..read more

Myo Restobar, classic Cantonese food in the CBD

A Chinese restaurant in the middle of CBD, tucked away on top of a commercial building with no prominent signage in view? You would think that it's quite impossible for them to survive the pandemic, but nope, Myo Restobar still draws in the crowd with their solid dishes featuring 40 years of history and experience from their Kia Hiang roots. You may be drawn in by their Michelin Guide recommended Claypot Spring Chicken but definitely stay for their classic homestyle Cantonese dishes and all-day dimsum. A bite of the Shitake Mushrooms & Black Truffle Dumpling (3pcs $6) and i knew we had to ..read more

Almost forgot to update my review of the Singapore Airlines B777-300ER Business Class ride from Singapore to Frankfurt when we went on our Germany trip (check out our 10 day Germany itinerary here)! Now that we're working on our relocation, i thought it was opportune to share the updated SQ Business Class review.  Our trip started with a visit to the temporary SilverKris Lounge, which is the current KrisFlyer Gold Lounge. We didn't have much time to spare actually so i'm gonna do the lounge justice and refer you to Mainly Miles review of the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge here! One thin ..read more
