Hands-On Cooking Class @ ToTT (Suntec City)

 photo P7176671.jpg
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!

(CLOSED) 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)

 photo P7116231.jpg
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)

 photo P7096180.jpg
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)

 photo P7075950.jpg
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

(CLOSED) Salt Tapas & Bar @ Raffles City

 photo P7065799.jpg
I had a wonderful experience at Salt Grill & Sky Bar awhile back and have always been meaning to pay a visit to Salt Tapas & Bar. And finally, finally, I did and my evening here was nothing short of amazing too. Sitting prominently outside of Raffles City, Salt Tapas seems to carry more of a chill vibe with the whole alfresco thing going on but the interior is classy and cosy at the same time.

Sitting in the basement of one of the most popular malls in the west, Pho Street at Westgate dishes out decent and unpretentious Vietnamese fare. Patrons can expect pretty authentic street delights prepared by Chef Kenny, who comes from Vietnam. Since its humble beginnings in 2013, Pho Street has expanded to 2 outlets and they are constantly looking to inject freshness into their menus by tailoring recipes and adding new items

Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters @ Upper Thomson

 photo P6245553.jpg
One of the most popular cafes in Singapore, Pacamara has been wow-ing the masses with its bright and white interior, and pretty and delish food. This is one cafe that always appears on my instagram feed. And I've finally found time to pop by for brunch on a weekday to escape the crazy crowd.

By the same folks behind My Little Spanish Place, My Little Tapas Bar is a popular haunt on Club Street that dishes out authentic Spanish tapas, complete with a wide range of wines.

Cuts @ Edge at Pan Pacific Singapore

Edge at Pan Pacific Singapore is well known for its buffet which has an appealing and very wide selection of Asian and Pacific cuisine. They also have themed nights where the buffet spreads focuses on a particular range. We popped by on a Tuesday and it was a meat-themed night that featured Roasted Whole Lamb, Wagyu Rump, German Pork Knuckles, a live station where they grill your choice of meats and sausages and more.
