Avenue 87 - New Modern Asian Restaurant on Amoy Street

avenue87_amoy_st_singapore

Avenue 87 is the newest kid on Amoy Street, and the brainchild of 2 Singaporean boys, Glen and Alex, who were born in 1987, and who grew up in Hougang Avenue 8 and 7 respectively. Hence, the name Avenue 87 seemed more than apt. With strong culinary backgrounds and stints at reputable dining establishments, the two came together again after their last working partnership at Tippling Club years ago. Even though Glen is based in Shanghai at the moment, he and Alex managed to work seamlessly together, virtually, to craft the modern Asian menu which is inspired by familiar flavours of childhood and their favourites dishes. The duo elevates local favourites with finesse and contemporary takes, while using ingredients from local and regional partners Are you ready to go on a nostalgic journey with Avenue 87?

Raffles Courtyard - New Weekend Brunch at the Most Beautiful Brunch Spot in Town

 photo raffles hotel brunch.jpg
The iconic Raffles Hotel Singapore is home to a diverse range of F&B establishments, but loyal fans of The Grand Dame will always be back at Raffles Courtyard, Tiffin Room, Long Bar and The Grand Lobby. Sitting in the middle of the luxurious property is Raffles Courtyard, a tranquil alfresco bar that promises good food, good drinks, and a good time. Open from 3pm, Raffles Courtyard welcomes streams of patrons who pop by for a tipple or two during happy hour which runs daily from 5pm to 8pm. I've actually always wondered why the space isn't open for weekend brunch because it would definitely be so very popular. Alas, Raffles Hotel has decided to show off the beautiful place in its daytime splendor.

 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.

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.

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
