Tiffin Room at Raffles Hotel Singapore is rounding off a series of successful collaborations with an enchanting showcase of specially-curated off-menu dishes and well-crafted cocktails from The Elephant Room (4 courses + 4 cocktails for only $118/guest).

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.

Bistro Du Le Pin - Incredibly Affordable $120 18-Course Dinner Omakase with FREE FLOW WINE in Orchard

bistro_du_le_pin_dinner 
I posted a snippet of my dinner at Bistro du le Pin on Instagram stories and there were 250 sticker taps on it. This is when I knew I absolutely have to share about my dinner experience! I made a reservation weeks in advance for the 6pm seating, so make sure you book way in advance as well. I arrived promptly and the super friendly staff showed me to my counter seat and proceeded to store the cake I bought for my friend's birthday celebration in the fridge. There were a la carte options available but we were here for the $120/pax dinner omakase with free flow wine. And I would highly recommend that you go for that. I was super excited for the meal — I mean, come on, FREE FLOW WINE???

LeVeL33 - Value-For-Money Executive Set Lunch at World's Highest Urban Microbrewery

level33_mbfc_weekday_lunch_set 

Perched on level 33(of course) of MBFC, LeVeL 33 is the world's highest microbrewery. Setting up of this place was a real tough job because the giant tanks required for the brewing of the beer couldn't fit into the elevators. Imagine the amount of work needed to lift numerous tanks up by cranes to the 33rd floor! Talk about dedication! Apart from brewing their own beer, the brewery does pretty solid food, and might possibly be best known for its spectacular view of the Marina bay area, where crowds most often gather for fireworks display come New Year's Eve or National Day. LeVeL33 is also known for their value-for-money Executive Set Lunch which runs from Monday to Friday.

Tenya - Popular Japanese Tendon Chain Opens in Orchard Central!

tenya_singapore_orchard_central 
Tenya is best known for its signature Tendon. Not only is their tendon delicious, the price point is exceptionally agreeable with our wallets. The exact recipe which is used in Japan is followed here in Singapore, so if you've loved the tendon at Tenya in Japan, or are a huge fan of tendon in general, you need to visit! I've to warn you though — the queue is crazy and the wait can go up to 2 hours.

The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar has been popular since the very day they opened their doors, and for good reason. The gorgeous space is perfect for girly brunch dates, and romantic dinners — truly a venue for all occasions. Having been to The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar when they first opened, I have fond memories of this place and even fonder memories of their Salted Caramel Icecream which, needless to say, left a lasting impression.

Hooked@Edge - The Best Seafood Buffet Dinner in Town Just Keeps Getting Better

 photo best buffet dinner singapore.jpg
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! And there's no better time than now, because Edge has just revamped their spread with spanking new additions! Look forward to an enhanced selection of seafood, a daily double-boiled soup counter, and a cendol and teh tarik live station, on top of an incredibly wide variety and numerous live counters. I have no doubt that you'll be dazzled by the selection that you have no idea where to start. Well, I usually go for the fresh seafood on ice and sashimi first!

 photo En Sakaba Hotpot Buffet.jpg
EN Sakaba should be quite a familiar name by now. With multiple outlets across the island, the modern izakaya has attracted throngs of people with an attractive array of Japanese dishes that include chirashi don and yakiniku don. However, do you know that the best thing that EN Sakaba has to offer is actually their hotpot buffet which comes with a free flow of A5 Champion Miyazaki Wagyu, Zuwai Queen Crab, and Iberico Pork? This buffet was previously priced at $108 but is now going at just $78/pax. It's basically an insane deal that will leave you utterly satisfied and rubbing your tummy in glee.

Regent Tea Lounge - An Indulgent Weekday Afternoon Tea in the Heart of Orchard

photo Regent Tea Lounge afternoon tea 9.jpg
Having tea on a weekday afternoon is not something that we can do very often. Hence, when we get the chance to kick back and enjoy a luxurious afternoon tea session, we have to make sure that we choose wisely, don't we? The weekday three-tier afternoon tea at Regent Singapore, which is affordably priced at $45/pax, promises to please your palate and fill you to the brim. The tea starts at 12pm, and runs all the way to 5pm. While I didn't spend the full 5 hours here, those who plan to have a long catch-up session with their beloved girl pals will definitely enjoy their time in the revamped colonial garden setting. While the typical afternoon tea sets offer just the stated set, and drinks, Regent has made it their top priority to ensure that guests are very well taken care of with the inclusion of a mini buffet that features mini pastries, salads, sandwiches, Italian cheeses and other small bites.

(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.

Don Play Play - Best Japanese Food Delivery in Singapore

 photo IMG_7799.jpg
Started by three friends who each has a background in the F&B industry, Don Play Play is set to be the next big delivery player in town. A cheeky play on the famous phrase “don’t play play”, Don Play Play is quintessentially “Singlish”, and Singaporean. The team hopes that the catchy name, which was thought up by Miss Tam Chiak, Singapore's favourite food blogger, will capture the attention of the masses, and also reflect that Don Play Play is a proud homegrown brand. As the name suggests, Don Play Play focuses on whipping up the yummiest dons or rice bowls. They have rolled out four tantalizing flavours to dazzle the tastebuds of the lucky students and residents of the National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University, and six creations for the working professionals in the CBD.

Sushi Jin - One of the Best Omakase Dinners in Singapore

 photo Sushi Jin Omakase 1.jpg
I'm not an expert when it comes to omakase dinners, especially when I haven't dined at the big names. Shinji, Hashida, Sushi Jiro, and Shoukouwa are on my list but till my bank account is fuller, I won't be able to indulge in a dinner at any of these establishments. I have, however, been on the lookout for awesome omakase dinners that come with a more pocket-friendly price tag. In recent times, I've dined at Ryo Sushi twice, and Hakumai. And now, Sushi Jin by the Les Amis Group.

Hakumai - Inexpensive Sushi Omakase in Tanjong Pagar

 photo Hakumai Singapore.jpg
Omakase in Singapore definitely doesn't come cheap. We are talking about the ones which have perfected the sushi rice, the ones that use premium and fresh ingredients, and the ones who know how best to highlight the pristine flavours of each type of fish. Sushi omakase has long been stereotyped as a meal that will burn a deep hole in your pocket. Shinji, Hashida, and Tatsuya are some of the big names that most frequently pop into our minds when the word 'omakase' is mentioned. Dinner at any of these dining establishments will set you back at least $300 - $500. Hence, people always think that a good omakase meal is out of their reach, and budget. However, that is certainly not the case.

Hakumai offers both omakase and kaiseki. There are two types of omakase available — sushi omakase($68.80), and omakase course(market price)
