Bob's Bar @ Capella Singapore (Sentosa)

Nothing's better than sipping a cocktail and listening to live Cuban music at Bob's bar on a lazy afternoon. Busk in the melodious and upbeat tunes, revel in exquisite handcrafted cocktails, all while watching the world go by. It is strangely therapeutic, may I add.

The Battle of the Crabs buffet at Spice Brasserie has been incredibly popular and its third edition has recently concluded with a bang. After a trip to both their sister Parkroyal properties that are brandishing an attractive crab buffet and lobster buffet respectively, I actually wondered if anyone would actually merge both ideas together. Executive Chef Low has done just that by creating the ultimate crustacean feast by putting both the well-loved crabs and crowd-pleasing lobsters on the table.

Truffle Broth Ramen @ Kanshoku Ramen Bar (Orchard Gateway)

Following the success of their dry Truffle Ramen, Kanshoku Ramen Bar has brought their latest inception, Truffle Broth Ramen($17.90) to the table. The folks at Kanshoku were careful not to overdo the truffle flavour and have worked hard for four months to create this. Infused with truffle oil, topped with truffle pate and shaved truffle, I would say that the final product was one that surprisingly worked. Although the broth lacked the creaminess and flavour of a rich tonkotsu broth, it worked in this case because the taste of truffle compensated for the inadequacy of the broth. While some might prefer a stronger truffle taste, it was just right for me. As usual, the ajitama and charshu were on point.
