Jamie's Italian @ Forum (Orchard Road)

If you have been to Orchard Road in the recent months, you would have most probably caught a glimpse or two of the eye-catching Jamie's Italian signboard outside Forum Shopping Mall. This is the second outlet of the global success to have opened up on our sunny little island, and the first to be serving up pizzas.

Joie by DOZO, Shi Li Fang & YiLi PaoPao Ice @ Orchard Central

Not many are aware of the plentiful food options available at Orchard Central. I was one of those unknowing until I embarked on a food trail recently within the shopping mall. Initially, I thought there were only a couple of F&B establishments on the verandah. However, I was surprised to discover a huge array of cuisines being offered from its basement to the rooftop.

I visited a few establishments that I thought were unique, interesting and definitely worth a try: Joie by DOZO, Shi Li Fang 食立方 and YiLi PaoPao Ice.

The Waterfall @ Shangri-La Hotel

The Waterfall at Shangri-La Hotel is truly beautiful. With an alfresco area right beside the pool and a spacious colonial indoor dining area that is comfortable and cozy, it's no wonder the restaurant has long been a popular dining destination. The Waterfall dishes out authentic Southern Italian cuisine under the watch of Chef Marco, a Sicilian native. A new menu featuring exclusive imported cheeses, cold cuts and 26 new dishes has recently been launched. Diners can opt for a semi-lunch buffet, in which they can go for unlimited rounds of antipasti, on top of their main courses.

Humpback @ Bukit Pasoh Road

Carrying a fun and cheery vibe, Humpback sits pretty next to The Flagship and is one of the latest projects by the awesome folks behind Jigger and Pony. With five establishments under their belt, the wonderful team still makes sure that only the very best is served at every one of their babies. Humpback impressed me a great deal with its cleverly crafted dishes and awfully friendly and warm service. I have to say that its been awhile since I've been impressed at a place that focuses on small plates.

The Halia @ Singapore Botanic Gardens

I don't know why I've never been to The Halia at Botanics before. I was seriously blown away when I arrived at the restaurant. It's so beautiful and I love the greenery and how serene and calm the place is. I was thinking that it might get very warm and humid because we were dining outdoors but the soft breeze kept us cool all night long. Seriously, why haven't I been here before?
