When BBR by Alain Ducasse first opened its doors at Raffles Hotel Singapore back in 2019, I was beyond excited. After trying the food and drinks for the very first time there, I was obsessed. I couldn't even get a reservation after the opening night. Unfortunately, shortly after their grand opening, covid hit and the spacious and beautiful restaurant had to close. It's been more than a year since and the restaurant has recently reopened as OSTERIA BBR by Alain Ducasse, focusing on ingredients sourced from the Italian Riviera.
Ever since I saw pictures of the Fox Village back in 2014, visiting it has been on my bucket list. So when I booked my trip to Japan back in March, I knew that I had to make it here! Our original plan was to travel here from Tokyo but we made a last minute decision to go from Kyoto instead. We left Kyoto at 8am in the morning, arrived at Tokyo around noon to deposit our luggage in the lockers, and made our way to Shiroishi-Zao from there.

Kitchen Hands - Best Meal Kit in Singapore (Tasty Food, Super Affordable, Free Delivery, No Prep, No Wastage)
I have been obsessed with Kitchen Hands ever since I first tried it
in January. I've been a regular since, ordering the meal kits
almost every week. For my first ever delivery from Kitchen Hands, I had
the Thai Basil Pork Rice with Thai Fish Cakes, Grilled Beef Burrito,
Spaghettini Alle Vongole, and Butter Chicken. AND, I WAS SOLD, right from the very first kit I tried.
I seriously love Kitchen Hands' meal kits — they are fuss-free, straightforward, easy, convenient, and EXTREMELY affordable.

Here are 21 cafes in the far west of Singapore that you probably have never heard of. And we mean the extreme west, like Pioneer to Dover so cafes in Holland Village and Bukit Timah are not covered in this listicle. The independent cafes featured are not part of any chains and are not located in shopping malls. If you're planning a cafe-hopping trip to the west side, our little list might be of help!

Kakiin Oyster Bar is a cozy Japanese izakaya in Orchard Plaza which accommodates 8-10 people in each seating. We made a reservation online for the 615pm seating but realised that it was already half full when we got there punctually. I later realised that the seatings run from 530pm - 8pm, and from 815pm - 1030pm. As everyone is seated at the counter, we could all watch the Japanese chef, and his 2 assistants, hard at work while navigating skillfully around the tiny kitchen. Even though the space is small, it did not reek of oil, or left us smelling like a walking bbq or fryer after we were done with the meal.

My omakase experiences have gotten, progressively, more expensive. While I was deliberating on where I should bring my best friend for a celebratory omakase meal, I consulted Rubbish Eat Rubbish Grow on his thoughts on the biggest names in the Japanese cuisine scene in Singapore. Here were my options : Shinji, Shoukouwa, Hashida, Tatsuya, Jiro. Nat very patiently went through every option with me, and it was a no-brainer. Hashida, it was. I made a reservation online for lunch on a weekday and made my way to Mandarin Gallery with a racing heart.
Hashida Sushi was first opened in Tokyo, in 1966, by Master Sushi Chef Tokio Hashida. His son, Kenjiro Hashida, is at the helm of Hashida Sushi Singapore.

Chef Kang's Private Kitchen is one of the hardest-to-book Michelin-starred restaurants in Singapore. The small one-Michelin-starred outfit along Mackenzie Road has just 5 tables, and they have a whole line of loyal fans who return regularly, so it's not easy to get a seat here. I made a reservation about 6 weeks in advance, and my foodie friends were surprised that I managed to score a table! Truth be told, so was I. I was coming here with my dad and brother and was told over the phone that a minimum of 5 pax is needed for them to give us one of the dining rooms, so we were allocated a table next to the counter. That was a little disappointing but I guess, we were coming for the food more than anything else, so I agreed to it.

I hardly write negative reviews, I always try to support small businesses instead of well known multinational companies, and I love old folks. So it's sad that I have to write this to warn all of you who ever thought of, or are thinking of, going to the cobbler outside Holland Village MRT station.

farms and producers. terra prides itself on its selection of fresh produce and the staff will proudly introduce the freshest picks of the day to diners before the meal commences.
