Quandoo Food Trail : Kite, L'entrecôte Wine Bar, Bincho, Sum Yi Tai
With close to 800 food and beverage merchants on board, Quandoo is the largest online reservation platform for restaurants in Singapore. Quandoo is popular and widely used as it is simple to navigate and users are rewarded with points for every booking made or review written. These points could be exchanged for monetary rewards! How cool is that?
I'll be giving away a $100 dining voucher(courtesy of Quandoo) at the end of this post, so read on to find out more!
Kite @ Craig Road
“Chicken Rice” Crackers - $6
Beneath the pile of crunchy crackers sits a pool of fiery chicken rice chilli. Unique, addictive and definitely one of the signatures here.
Saba Rillette - $10
My favourite dish at Kite comes packed in an adorable little tin. The rillette was dressed with popping colours and armed with cucumbers and croutons for a crunchy edge. Appetite-whetting and I'll bet that you can't get enough of it.
Camembert - $12
Warm and melted Camembert paired with mango cubes and walnuts? An unorthodox combination that worked surprisingly well.
Expect a whole line-up of creative dishes and cocktails that might just make your jaw drop!

Tuesday - Friday : 12pm - 230pm, 6pm - 12am
Saturday - Sunday : 6pm - 12am
L'entrecôte Wine Bar @ Duxton Hill
Raclette (Deluxe) - $37
A platter of cheese, potatoes, gherkins and coldcut is just about the perfect way to start the night.
Place a slice of cheese in one of the cute pans and put it back on the stove and indulge in some salami and ham as you wait for the cheese to melt and bubble.
Pour the melted cheese onto the potatoes and enjoy them !
Fondue Vigneronne - $59.90
The star of the night for me was the Fondue Vigneronne, a combination of unusually delish fries, salad, and 350g of Beef Striploin. The fondue here does not refer to a chocolate fountain that we are all familiar with.
A piping hot red wine fondue awaits the company of the beef stripling. Using the skewers provided, take extra caution as you sink a piece of the beef into the decadent mix. It cooks really quickly so be mindful not to overcook it! The end result is a succulent piece of beef that has soaked up the essence of the red wine fondue sufficiently. Rich and absolutely delicious.
Tartilflette - $29
Baked to perfection, the tantalising tartiflette will have everyone going "mhmm". It seems simple but is extremely satisfying and comforting. The price point though, in my opinion, is a little too high.
L'entrecôte is the place to go to enjoy authentic French cuisine. Dine like the French at this charming space as you unwind over wine and great food.

Bincho @ Moh Guan Terrace
Mentai Wings(served in twos) - $15
The wings are usually served in twos and not threes. The bones have been removed before the middle of the wings is injected with mentai. As you bite into the plump core of the wings, you will be greeted with an abundance of roe. It is an interesting dish but it sure has a hefty price tag.
Bincho is tucked away in the quiet Tiong Bahru estate and the entrance is located at the back alley. I really like the ambience and industrial interior and will definitely make a return.

Tuesday - Sunday : 12pm - 3pm, 6pm - 12am
Sum Yi Tai @ Boon Tat Street
Chinese Mojito - $21
1980s Nostalgia - $21
The three-storey bar boasts a nice rooftop area and a list of unique concoctions with local elements and Chinese influence. Fans of Chinese beats will adore this place.
