Bellini Canella @ Burgers VS Wings + Bar


 photo P6155416.jpg
Besides the unique burgers and yummy starters served at Burgers VS Wings + Bar, the star of the night was most definitely these bottles of Bellini Canella that was created in 1948 in a bar in Venice. Complete with a minimalistic packaging, the Bellini Canella is a no frills and unpretentious bottle of natural goodness. Vastly different from the Bellini cocktails that we get in bars, Bellini Canella contains fresh white peaches that have been experimented to withstand the test of time in the bottle. Fresh white peaches are the defining ingredient in an authentic Bellini and because they are so rare and expensive, the Bellini cocktails that we find in bars usually contain peach syrup or yellow peaches instead.

Chuan Wang Ji @ Santa Grand Hotel (East Coast)


 photo P6115261.jpg
Chuan Wang Ji is just a couple of weeks old but they have already garnered a loyal following who come by specially for their spicy Sze Chuan dishes. The first thought that comes to mind when one mentions Sze Chuan food is probably the crazy levels of spiciness present in every dish. Little do we know that there are actually dishes that do not employ the use of hot spices. Most of the spices used in the preparation of the food are imported from China, heightening the authenticity of the cuisine served here

Its been a long long time since I last paid a visit to The Bravery but we decided to head there for brunch one Monday morning! I've always remembered the pancakes to be yummy so I recommended that to my partner-in-crime for the day while I grabbed a burger. Burger at 10am? Yupp, that's how I roll.

Journey with Yomeishu

 photo Image1.jpeg
When I was first spurred on by Kimberley to give a herbal liqueur a try, I was wondering if there was a new product in town. Growing up with the folks had me quite accustomed and familiar with the various kinds of herbal liqueurs in the market. Yet, like many in our generation, we steered away, or at least I did, from these herbal liqueurs as the appeal wasn’t there. They come across as something for the older generation, not as trendy as the various forms of alcohol close to our hearts. However, I didn’t see that I had anything to lose, especially now that the draining university examinations were over

Rise & Grind Coffee Co

The new kid in the Bukit Timah neighbourhood, Rise & Grind has been drawing a great amount of attention to the very old Bukit Timah Plaza. There's hardly any reason for me to go there except for some late night pool but Rise & Grind is almost reason enough for me to make a trip there specially. Because, that Tom Yum Pasta.

Hungry Heroes @ 33 Tessensohn Road

 photo P5194775.jpg
When you let a Captain America fanatic pick a dinner venue, this has to be it. We came to Hungry Heroes all hungry and expectant. The place was very nicely dolled up with life sized superhero models, tons of pictures and figurines. However, we were greeted with rather poor service on arrival and it kinda did affect the rest of the meal.

FUKU Fine Fugu Kaiseki Restaurant @ Mohamed Sultan Road

Media Invite

Fugu (pufferfish) is known for its ability to poison and kill, should it be ingested without being cleaned properly and thoroughly. Many have stayed away from fugu as a result. I am one of them, having heard a story from an acquaintance about his near death experience with fugu. I kinda made a promise to myself to never try it. But when the fugu is completely treated in Japan before being flown over, passing the stringent import regulations of the AVA and being prepared by the only licensed fugu chef out of Japan in Asia, there's really no reason good enough to stop me from trying fugu.

There are more than 120 fugu species in the world but only about 20 are fit for consumption. The Torafugu, which is the most premium pufferfish of all, is served right here at FUKU. 100% safe and only the best. Fugu is available at FUKU all year round and every edible part of the prized fugu is employed in the preparation of various dishes
