Gyu-Kaku @ CHIJMES

Media Invite

When life presents you with such intensely marbled Kuroge Wagyu from Kagoshima, what do you do? Well, I took a few moments to admire its beauty and thank the Gods before entrusting the experts to cook this to perfection. Then, I prepared myself for the fireworks that were about to go off in my mouth. I've had alot of barbecued beef, having been in Korea for a month. And even the best one that we had, which was really damn good, didn't come close to this.

Helmed by Peranakan chef, Philip Chia, Penang-born street-food chef, Frankie Ooi, and our very own Anglo-Hainanese chef, Bermuda Say, can you guess the three types of cuisine served at this railway-themed restaurant?

Paying tribute to Singapore's colonial heritage and set on creating a dining establishment where they can reminisce their childhoods, the owners of Straits Express decided on a concept that evokes nostalgia and a menu boasting delicious and familiar comfort fare

Temper by ANJALI CHOCOLAT

Media Invite

ANJALI CHOCOLAT has relocated from Pasarbella at Turf City to Loewen Road, next to Dempsey. With its new location, comes a spanking new chocolate studio, Temper. Tucked deep inside Loewen Road, this is not the easiest place to find, and impossible to get to without private transport but it might just be worth the effort if you're looking for premium chocolates crafted from the finest ingredients (think French butter, Belgian Chocolate etc).

A name that always pops into minds when ramen comes into question is Ippudo. Ippudo is a global chain that has achieved remarkable success in many countries. The fifth and newest Ippudo outlet, in Singapore, has opened in the heart of Orchard. Located in Shaw Centre, do note that the easiest way to get here is to take the elevators in the office tower, opposite Pacific Plaza, to level 4.

New Menu @ The Missing Pan

Media Invite

The Missing Pan is a popular brunch spot and the snaking queue for brunch on weekends proves how famous their sous vide eggs and French toast are. Just a week ago, The Missing Pan introduced a brand new menu that boasts of delicious fare that absolutely calls for a dinner visit. And may I advise that you pop by soon, before the place gets too crowded to even score a reservation!

Montana Brew Bar and Nookie Yogurt have taken the island by storm ever since their opening. With Montana Brew Bar boasting innovative and highly affordable waffles and Nookie Yogurt booting out deconstructed desserts in yogurt parfait form, its no wonder that these two establishments were an instant hit. And very cleverly connected to each other at PoMo too.

The Mama Shop

Late to the party, but at least I'm finally here! Kinda waited for all the craze to die down first before making a trip here. Popped by for brunch with Derrick and Charleen on a Sunday afternoon and I was honestly shocked to see the place empty, save for a blogshop holding a photoshoot. I'd expected this place to be packed to the brim, especially with all the publicity that it had had and its celebrity owners.
