photo The Playground Coffee 1.jpg
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!

Best Restaurants, or Rather, My Favourite Restaurants in Singapore

Path Restaurant MBFC 
Took me a long time to finally put this list here(I don't know why) but here are my favourite restaurants in Singapore, and obviously the best restaurants in Singapore to me. 
I might have forgotten some great places, but will update this post as I go along!
 
I have personally eaten at all of these places before, so I hope you'll like them too! Places that I have highlighted are places that I have revisited.

Griglia Open Fire Italian Kitchen - New Restaurant on Craig Road Brings You a Taste of an Outdoor Italian Barbecue

Griglia_Craig_Road_singapore_menuGriglia, the new kid on Craig road, aims to transport diners to a 'grigliata' — an outdoor barbecue party that the Italians often indulge in with their loved ones. It's always a hearty affair; everyone brings along fresh produce and throws them onto the grill over a strong fire fueled by charcoal. When produce is that fresh, all you need is a light sprinkling of salt and some top quality olive oil to bring out the best in them. And that's exactly what Griglia is all about. The menu is centered on dishes cooked on a custom-made cast iron grill flown in from Russia, and diners can expect unique dishes built with lightly-seasoned ingredients that are reminiscent of the "mix and match" concept typically observed at grigliatas where attendees pile their plates with anything they desire from the grill.

Lady M is a household name. Most of all would have at least tried their signature mille crepe cakes, which  the brand is famous for, but have you tried their savoury items before? Well, I haven't, until I visited their newest and sixth outlet in Singapore, Lady M Champagne Bar, on the third level of ION Orchard. Furnished with plush seats, marble tables, and gold finishings, Lady M's first ever champagne bar in the world promises a luxurious tea time where patrons can indulge in delicious champagne, exquisite cakes and outlet-exclusive signatures.

Well, if you ask me, an Italian brunch which comes with a free-flow of delicious treats, wine, and champagne certainly sounds more enticing! Zafferano's popular Saturday brunch has made a comeback due to overwhelming demand. Perched on the 43rd storey of Ocean Financial Centre, the elegant restaurant promises a tantalising spread of classic Italian delights that will satisfy even the biggest eater, and the hungriest diner.

(CLOSED) Le Binchotan - Amazing Japanese-French Creations with a Rich Smokiness

photo Le Binchotan uniĀ  caviar.jpg
Le Binchotan has been around for awhile now, but the new chef-owner, Jeremmy, who have had stints at Iggy's and Sola, has refreshed things, injected more goodness into the food, and is bringing even more to the table. The name Le Binchotan is a combination of a French word, and a Japanese word, and this captures the essence of the restaurant perfectly. The restaurant specialises in Japanese-French flavours that are elevated with a trademark smokiness that can only be achieved with the use of binchotan, a rare and expensive charcoal.

The Playground Coffee took over the space formerly occupied by Pits & Pans. The cafe sits in Nanyang Community Centre and is a cozy space that serves up good coffee and decent brunch fare. You may be able to find similarities, such as the use of geometric shapes in the interior design and logo, between The Playground Coffee and The Populus Coffee & Food Co at Neil Road. This is because The Playground Coffee is set up by ex-staff of the popular Populus.

There is a constant stream of natural sunlight into the cafe but you will be able to catch some shadows if that's your photography style at certain corners.

 photo Osteria Mozza Marina Bay Sands Weekend Brunch 11.jpg
Osteria Mozza by celebrity chefs Mario Batali, Nancy Silverton and Joseph Bastianich have long been renowned for exquisite Italian fine-dining. The restaurant used to only operate during dinner hours but due to overwhelming requests, they have decided to take on weekend lunch which runs from 12pm - 330pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The lunch options are largely wallet-friendly and they even have a three-course set lunch ($48) comprising a starter, pasta and dessert which is really affordable and well worth every penny.
