Birds of a Feather - New Weekend Brunch with a Taste of Sichuan

 photo Birds of a Feather 2.jpg
Just six months old, Birds of a Feather has really made a name for itself with its repertoire of contemporary Western dishes that are inspired by traditional Sichuan cuisine. The restaurant is gorgeous. It has natural light streaming through the glass roof in the day, and it rocks a romantic ambience when night falls. And now, they have launched a new all-day weekend brunch that runs from 10am to 5pm. The Hong Shao Beef Ragout Orecchiette ($26) is an absolute must-try!

The Roastery by Nozy Coffee - Charming Rustic Cafe in Omotesando

While my travel partner was queuing for the famous Luke's Lobster, I decided to make a quick trip to The Roastery for a cup of latte. The cafe was really popular. Not only was it packed, there were two long queues stretching out of the entrance.

Luke's Lobster(Omotesando) - Best Lobster Roll?

People rave about Luke's Lobster all the time and I was all ready to give it a try. All the way from New York, the snug little booth in the popular Omotesando area is familiar to snaking long queues and throngs of tourists. The queue was super long, unfortunately, when I got there and we queued for close to an hour for these babies. We decided to get a trio of sandwiches so we had a variety of seafood to savour. Shrimp, crab and lobster!

Sushi Sei Honten - Fresh and Affordable Sushi

When I talk about the famous Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, almost everyone starts raving about Sushi Dai or Sushi Daiwa. I wasn't prepared to start queuing at 4am in the morning for either of these two popular sushi restaurants so I decided to find something as good, without the insane queue. This was how I discovered Sushi Sei Honten, a two-storey restaurant in Tsukiji.

Inoichi 猪一 is a popular Bib Gourmand Ramen Restaurant in Kyoto. Don't be surprised if you see tourists in queue with their luggage. Apart from their famous ramen prepared with simmered fish broth, which has been touted as the best ramen in Kyoto, their rice bowls warrant a try too.

Hooked@Edge - My Favourite Buffet in Singapore has Even More Seafood Now!

 photo Hooked  Edge Pan Pacific 13.jpg
When asked where's my favourite buffet place in Singapore, my answer is always "Edge at Pan Pacific Singapore". The spread is always incredibly extensive, especially luxurious and of only the best quality. My favourite sections are the dessert corner, seafood on ice section and live grill station, but I also love the pasta, bread and sashimi sections! The buffet line-up has recently been revitalised with new creations and diners can look forward to Oatmeal Crayfish, Nyonya King Prawn Laksa, Wok-fried King Lala Beehoon, Cuttlefish Tagliolini Pasta, Prawn Panggang with Sea Salt, Steamed Mussels Pot and more.
