PORTA(Park Hotel Clarke Quay) - An Impressive Christmas Feast That Won't Break the Bank

 photo porta park hotel clarke quay new years.jpg
In celebration of the most joyous season, PORTA at Park Hotel Clarke Quay has launched a Four-Course Festive Menu($66++) that's inspired by winter favourites. I believe that the menu, which is only available from 23-25 December, and on 30 and 31 December, is unbeatable in terms of value, especially during the Christmas period when Christmas feasts cost a bomb. PORTA is the place to bring your loved ones if you're looking to impress them, without burning a big hole in your pocket.

Artichoke - The Least Authentic Middle Eastern Restaurant in Singapore Serves Really Good Food

 photo Artichoke singapore middle eastern dinner.jpg

I first visited the funky Artichoke back in 2010, the year that they made Sculpture Square their home. I fell in love with their meat candy, which I made multiple return trips for. Fast forward a couple of years, I still visit every now and then for brunch. Strangely, I've never been here for dinner. And I never knew how much I was missing out on until my recent dinner here, which was kind of mind-blowing to be honest. I guess there's a reason why this 9-year-old outfit by Chef Bjorn Shen is #stillnotdead.

 photo 0zFEzBrQ.jpeg
Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa is nestled on a hillside, surrounded by 3.8 hectares of manicured gardens and natural rainforest. Boasting 140 guest rooms, suites, villas and a mansion, Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa is known for its beautifully restored colonial architecture. Built on a piece of 10-acre land, where old British military barracks and air raid shelters stood, Amara Sanctuary has a story to tell. The rich history of the property might not be known to many, but that’s going to change now. The new Amara Heritage Trail—a 60-minute walking trail— allows participants to discover the nature and conservation efforts in the property, learn about World War II related stories, and it also offers a glimpse into the lives of the British soldiers who lived here in the colonial era.

Botanico at The Garage - New Chef, New Locally-Inspired Creations

 photo Botanico botanics dinner 8.jpg
Ever since Botanico opened its doors, it has been on my list of recommended places to go. Set amidst lush greenery, the restaurant is perfect for romantic dates, intimate family dinners, and those who just want to kick back and relax over cocktails and wine. With a new chef at its helm, Botanico has moved towards a more locally-inspired menu that is heavily influenced by Asian flavours, and built with botanical elements. The outstanding Seabass Ceviche($17), which is Chef Su's interpretation of Assam Laksa, left a really deep impression. Diced seabass is brilliantly put together with tamarind-dressed glass noodles, and a scoop of shrimp paste icecream. If there's only one dish that you can have from the menu, this has to be it. I promise that you'll fall in love with it on the very first bite

Zafferano - New Dishes from Chef Emanuele Faggi


 photo zafferano cbd.jpg
Chef Emanuele Faggi is young, creative, and absolutely brilliant. The new head chef of Zafferano, a Tuscan native, has had stints at famous restaurants(including 2-Michelin-Starred Cracco Ristorante), before taking over the kitchen at Zafferano. Chef Faggi makes sure that only the freshest produce is incorporated in his dishes, and cleverly marries seasonal produce and authentic Tuscan flavours with contemporary touches. Chef also firmly believes in the reduction of food wastage, and ever since his arrival at Zafferano, the restaurant has seen a 70% reduction in food wastage. Amazing, isn't it? "How does Chef Faggi do it?" You might ask. Well, food discards are made into powder, seasoning, or used for plating! Intrigued? You need to try his new additions to the menu then!

I rave about Edge all the time. Whenever anyone asks for a buffet recommendation, Edge is the first answer that pops out of my mouth. If you haven't been to Edge, you really really should!
