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.

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.

Beijing's most popular grilled fish restaurant has opened up its first outlet outside China, and it's right here in Singapore. The grilled fish restaurant has a total of 54 outlets in China and long queues are always observed at the numerous outlets. The 150-seater occupies a vast 5000 square feet in Raffles City and is elaborately designed with Chinese poems, hanging fishing nets and painted walls that make you feel like you're dining on a boat right by the river. Diners who love a spicy challenge are welcomed to try the restaurant's signature grilled fish by choosing from four types of fish and eight different sauces.
