Au Petit Salut Celebrated Her Last Valentine's Day

Au Petit Salut has been on my to-go list for the longest time. I'm glad to have dined there this valentine's day because it was actually their very last valentine's day. The restaurant was running its last service the next day, 15th February. I didn't know that they were closing but I caught wind of it when this couple, whom I assume were regulars, spoke to a staff about the closing. Well, thank goodness I had a chance to dine here before the restaurant was gone for good!

Le Binchotan - Amazing Japanese-French Creations with a Rich Smokiness

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.

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal - Is This Famous Restaurant Worth a Visit?

 photo Dinner by Heston Melbourne 8.jpg
I made a reservation at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal quite sometime before my trip to Melbourne. I was super stoked for my dinner here. The kind folks at Dinner saved me a table by the window, even though it was just me. I was quite touched as I thought that they would give such lovely seats to couples or families, instead of a lone diner, especially when the restaurant was full.

Beauty in the Pot - Newest and Biggest Outlet at OneKM Mall

 photo Beauty in the pot onekm 10.jpg
Beauty in the Pot is possibly Singapore's favourite hotpot place. I've eaten here countless of times, and I remain addicted to their Signature Beauty Collagen Soup, and Fried Beancurd Skin. There were times that I travelled all the way from my home in the west to Centrepoint in the wee hours of the morning just because I had to satiate those intense cravings. Many would compare Beauty in the Pot to Hai Di Lao, which isn't unusual. I am a huge fan of Hai Di Lao too, having first tried it back in 2013. I love their tomato soup, and their fish slices, and I've dined there numerous times too. However, in all honesty, ever since I've tried BITP, I have only been to HDL once, because I was already at Clarke Quay. Are you a huge fan of BITP too? If so, you'll be pleased to know that they have opened their largest outlet, yet, at OneKM mall, just a level above their very first outlet in Singapore.

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.
