Ai Tre Mercati - Best Dog-Friendly Bed & Breakfast in Palermo (Sicily) With the Nicest Host!

ai tre mercati palermo sicily room photo 

Sicily is an underrated gem that’s not on the radar of many Singaporeans, but it really deserves to be.

Filled with surprises at every turn and corner, Sicily will dazzle you with its beauty, food, and wine. If you’re planning to visit, you definitely have to visit Palermo which is probably the most beautiful city in the whole of Sicily! Expect amazing architecture, unique street food, and unparalleled Sicilian hospitality.

Our visit to Palermo saw us staying 2 nights at Ai Tre Mercati, a bed and breakfast right smack in the thick of action. Located just a short walk away from the train station, the bed and breakfast sits above one of the busiest streets, right across popular attractions, and is surrounded by plenty of food options
The location is unbeatable — it’s safe, easily accessible and within walking distance of all major landmarks.

Sicily is incredibly dog-friendly, and I have no doubt that your pup will enjoy his or her time here as well!

Mykonos Soul Suites in Mykonos quite frankly took my breath away. It is, no doubt, one of the best hotels that I've stayed at in my entire life.

It's exceptionally dog-friendly! So, if you're planning a vacation to Mykonos with your pup, look no further, because you won't find a dog-friendly hotel better than Mykonos Soul Suites.

M Maison Particulière Porto - Quite Possibly the Best Dog-Friendly Hotel in Porto!

m_maison_particuliere_porto_best_hotel

Porto is one of the cities that one has to visit at least once in their lifetime. The charming World Heritage city in the north of Portugal has so much to offer — rich history, friendly folks, and absolutely beautiful cuisine and wine. As its name suggests, the second-largest city in Portugal is famous for Port Wine, also known as Porto. The coastal city is a great base to explore neighbouring towns, and you can fly directly to Porto, or take a train here from the capital city, Lisbon. 

Of course, it's no wonder Porto is filled with accommodation options, considering its immense popularity with tourists. And there's one hotel that has really stood out with its unique decor, interesting concepts, and remarkable history. M Maison Particulière which is located just a few minutes by foot from the main train station, São Bento Station, is quite the perfect choice for the discerning traveller.

Red House Seafood - Best Pen Cai for a Prosperous & Auspicious Chinese New Year 2022!

red_house_seafood_chinese_new_year_2022 
Longstanding Red House Seafood is one of the oldest seafood restaurants in Singapore, and it's no surprise at all. Consistently sending out the tastiest seafood dishes crafted by old master chefs, the restaurant, which currently has 3 outlets, is always a hot spot for an amazing dinner, and intimate reunion feasts. The outlet at Grand Copthorne is the prettiest one of all, and is also a popular venue for wedding banquets. My family used to go to Red House Seafood alot when I was a kid, but as I grew up, we had fewer dinners together and haven't been back in awhile. After trying a few highlights from the Chinese New Year menu at Red House, I immediately told my family that we are heading back here for CNY!

OSTERIA BBR by Alain Ducasse - The Best New Restaurant in Singapore 2021

osteria_bbr_raffles_hotel_dinner_menu
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.

Raffles Courtyard Teams Up With FatFuku to Present Outstanding Modern Peranakan Dishes

fatfuku_singapore_rosti_meesiam
If you still haven't scored a highly-coveted seat at the table of FatFuku (Annette Tan), you might find yourself dancing to the news of her signature dishes making an appearance at Raffles Courtyard's second installation of collaborations with private dining chefs. Phase 2 Heightened Alert definitely dampened all our spirits, and FatFuku's exciting collaboration with Raffles Courtyard was put on a semi-hold, as a few of her dishes were made available for delivery via Raffles Grab and Go. Now that the restrictions have been gently lifted, and we can dine out in a small party of 2, it's time to make a reservation at Raffles Courtyard, because trust me, you wouldn't want to miss what FatFuku has in store. And you only have a little shy of 2 weeks (till 2 July) to snag a taste of Annette's inspiring and impressive modern takes on traditional Peranakan family recipes.

Tablescape Restaurant & Bar - New Modern European Creations & Dinner Degustation Menus

tablescape_degustation_menu_singapore 
I still think about my last visit to Tablescape at Grand Park City Hall, where I was blown away by their outstanding Risotto, and delicious Fettuccine that was topped with an unbelievably generous sprinkling of fresh black truffles. The modern European restaurant has undergone some changes, and has a new executive chef at the helm. Hence, you can, of course, expect a refreshed a la carte menu with new creations, and also spanking new degustation menus(4 course - $88, 6 course - $108, 8 course - $128) come dinnertime.

Grand Park City Hall x Tablescape - Exclusive Glamping Picnic on the Rooftop That's Not Accessible Even by Hotel Guests

grand_park_city_hall_tablescape_glamping_picnic
Glamping and Glampcations have been all the rage for awhile now. But have you been on a glamping picnic on the rooftop of a hotel before? Grand Park City Hall is offering an exclusive glamping picnic experience on their rooftop which is not usually open to even hotel guests. Typically a spot for solemnization parties and private events, the spacious rooftop, which boasts a nice view of the city, is now home to two comfortable tents that offer lots of privacy. Whether you're here for a romantic proposal with the sunset as a backdrop, a cozy get-together with your fave pals, or even an exciting hen's night under the stars, you won't be disappointed.
