Hands-On Cooking Class @ ToTT (Suntec City)

If I told you that I cooked and baked these three dishes, will you believe me?

Truth is, I did! Well, I wouldn't believe it too but under the guidance of Chef Francois Mermilliod of Bar A Thym, which is slated to open soon at 18 Gemmill Lane, I managed to whip up these dishes which not only looked amazing, but tasted amazing too!

Bottura @ Suntec City

 photo P7146379.jpg
Quality Italian food has always been known to come with quite a steep price tag but not the authentic Italian fare at Bottura, a 144-seater which sits eye-catchingly on the second level of Suntec City. Bottura is a family name and it brings from Italy traditional cooking methods and home-style dishes that Luka Bottura, the owner, grew up eating. The biggest highlight would be their handmade pasta. We have all come across homemade items, but the pasta here is not only homemade, but it is made by hand too. So thin that it wouldn't survive being processed by a machine, the pasta dishes served at Bottura are absolute must-tries

Brunch @ FYR Cycene Ond Drinc (Boon Tat Street)

Back at FYR for their new brunch menu which is significantly different from the brunch that we are used to. We often go for big breakfast platters, eggs Benedict or French toasts these days but the menu at FYR is a Modern European take and it actually left quite a deep impression.

Golden Jubilee Menu @ STREET 50 Restaurant & Bar (Bay Hotel)

In celebration of SG50, STREET 50 at Bay Hotel is launching a Golden Jubilee Menu with more than 50 dishes. Come 1st August, diners will be able to enjoy the all-day ala carte menu that boasts of local flavours melded with global cuisines. Here we have the Bubur Cha Cha Creme Brulee ($9.90), a clever take on well-loved local dessert, bubur cha cha. The different textures present, from various ingredients such as braised yam and sweet potato, coupled with smooth pandan custard rendered this colourful number my favourite dish of the night.

Enbu @ Eat At Seven (Suntec City)

Eat At Seven is the latest multi-concept dining project in town. With seven different Japanese restaurants under one roof, diners are spoilt for choice. I like the idea of being able to try various types of food at one destination. And Enbu, which specialises in grilling, is the first to be launched

Crab in da Bag @ Water Sports Centre (Singapore Sports Hub)

Yupp. That's just about an everyday sight at Crab in da Bag.

Crab in da Bag has opened its second nautical-themed restaurant at the Water Sports Centre at the Singapore Sports Hub, complete with a river view, sea breeze and really chill vibes. Crab in da Bag kicked off its grand opening in style and with a huge bang, no less, treating guests to its Caboodle Festival, where we witnessed the cooking of seafood in gigantic caboodle pots outdoors.

"Ahoy, Caboodle Boil!", we shouted as buckets and buckets of freshly cooked seafood were poured into this six-foot long, custom-built boat. No doubt one of the most extravagant live cooking demonstrations I've attended
