Photoshoot for Yomeishu

 photo DSC05679.jpg
Did a photoshoot for Yomeishu in July with Edmund Chen and a bunch of really awesomely photogenic people. If you don't know, I'm incredibly awkward and camera shy and it took alot of convincing before I finally decided to try this out. I was so scared and so nervous. It's like you know all the people who do photoshoots are really goodlooking, have rocking good bodies and stuff and I'm none of that. Can't tell you how much I was freaking out omg I still can't believe it happened

Nostalgic Dim Sum buffet @ Si Chuan Dou Hua (PARKROYAL on Kitchener)

 photo PA049641.jpg
Chef Wen Xin Wen is bringing back a taste of the olden days by recreating dimsums that were popular in the past. I wasn't expecting 50 dishes on the buffet menu and I definitely wasn't expecting the buffet to only cost $32- $38 per adult. Needless to say, I was immensely impressed by the selection and quality of the food. If you love yourself a good dimsum spread that is beyond value-for-money, I think you shouldn't miss this one

Le Bistrot du Sommelier - One of the Best French Restaurants

 photo intro_2.jpg

I used to be under the impression that one has to pay through the nose to have good French cuisine in Singapore. Especially for a heavy eater such as myself, I thought French fare, which typically is served in bijou portions, would leave me unsatisfied after my meal. Le Bistrot du Sommelier, however, proved itself as a great exception.

(CLOSED) Sopra Cucina @ Pan Pacific Orchard

 photo P9199217.jpg
(EDIT : SUNDAY BRUNCH HAS OFFICIALLY CEASED DUE TO MANPOWER ISSUES. All dishes featured are available on the Ala Carte menu)

I've walked past Sopra a couple of times but I've never gone in. When I finally stepped in for the first time, I realised what I have been missing out on. Sopra is a huge space beautifully decorated with vintage ornaments and furniture. It exudes a comforting and relaxing vibe and makes it quite the perfect venue for events, dinner and drinks. It is also a popular haunt for Ladies Night and has one of the awesomest happy-hour deals in town but people should really know about their Sunday Brunch. For just $66++, diners can have unlimited servings of Sardinian and Italian dishes. Top up $22 and you can drink your fill of Prosecco and wines. Now, tell me, isn't that a total bang for the buck?

#TrySomethingNew @ Nando's

 photo P9169031.jpg
Nando's has 11 outlets in Singapore and they're always packed during meal times. So if you frequent Nando's or are in love with their PERI PERI sauce, you'll definitely be more than pleased to know that Nando's has launched twenty new items! I visited the two-storey outlet at Junction 8, which is fully furnished with furniture, artwork and crockery from Africa. Great vibes, spacious venue, and a wonderful destination for an after-work gathering.

Heaven and Earth Product Launch @ Art Trove

 photo intro_1.jpg
Coca-Cola Singapore has recently unveiled and added two new and unique tea flavours to its Heaven and Earth range.

Mango Tea with a hint of Chamomile and Apple Tea with a hint of Lemongrass are indeed uncommon flavour pairings, especially for beverages. Both fusion tea flavours were dubbed by the beverage company as ‘an unusual match made in heaven’. To find out more, I went to their product launch held at the esteemed Art Trove, a private museum in Bras Basah which specialises in European art.

Follia @ Clover Way

 photo P9158932.jpg
Follia sits in the midst of a private housing estate and it's a pretty popular spot for the residents living in the area and diners who sought authentic Italian cuisine. Albeit a little inaccessible, Follia has a couple of pretty outstanding dishes that might just be worth the trip. The Osso Buco alla Milanese was my favourite dish of the night. The saffron rice paired up pretty damn well with the wonderfully executed veal that has been braised for four hours.

District 10 Bar & Grill @ Suntec City Mall

 photo fiorentina1.jpg
 On Tuesday, 6th October, District 10 Bar & Grill had its grand opening for its newest restaurant at Suntec City Mall. I managed to pay a visit prior to the grand opening to see what it was all about.

The outlet at Suntec City specialises in dry-aged meat. Some people might ask what’s so special about dry-aged meat. I can tell you that dry-aged meat can be a bit pricey but the price difference is definitely worthwhile. Once you’ve tried dry-aged meat, it’d be hard for you to try anything else.

Sugarhall @ Amoy Street

 photo P9128834.jpg
Sausages have never tasted this good. First and foremost, it's an astounding feat to be churning out your own sausages in house and secondly, it's definitely not an easy feat making them this delish. The House-made Sausages ($32) at Sugarhall really left an impression. Taste wise, texture wise and looks wise, these sausages aced them all.

Only a few people are aware of the F&B establishments within the vicinity of Fort Canning Park. However, the newly refurbished Fort Canning Arts Centre not only holds the Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris but a cafe that serves highly acclaimed, award winning chowders.
