Do you know that dashi is the broth of life, and basically the backbone of Japanese cuisine? It takes years of practice, and a very refined palate to concoct the most well-balanced dashi. NAMI calls upon all who have a discerning palate to come and have a taste of the 8 different types of dashi prepared by Dashi Master, Chef Shigeo, using meticulous age-old methods. And there's no better time to pop by, than lunchtime, because the value-for-money lunch sets will have you jumping for joy.

One of my good friends visit Akashi on a really regular basis. I got a little curious and asked why he keeps going there. He told me that the omakase is consistently good. Sure, I've heard of Akashi and Akanoya but I've never dined at any of them because I've heard that a meal at either locations will strain my wallet. Well, but when his birthday came around and he wanted to have an omakase lunch here, how could I say no? It's a great chance for me to finally see how good Akashi really is too!

Chef Emanuele Faggi is young, creative, and absolutely brilliant. The new head chef of Zafferano, a Tuscan native, has had stints at famous restaurants(including 2-Michelin-Starred Cracco Ristorante), before taking over the kitchen at Zafferano. Chef Faggi makes sure that only the freshest produce is incorporated in his dishes, and cleverly marries seasonal produce and authentic Tuscan flavours with contemporary touches. Chef also firmly believes in the reduction of food wastage, and ever since his arrival at Zafferano, the restaurant has seen a 70% reduction in food wastage. Amazing, isn't it? "How does Chef Faggi do it?" You might ask. Well, food discards are made into powder, seasoning, or used for plating! Intrigued? You need to try his new additions to the menu then!

Seoul Garden Group opened not just one, but two concepts in the new Century Square! Melding Korean flavours with Western influences, the group has outdone themselves with the launch of Seoul in a Sandwich, and Two Hana. Two Hana secured a really prime location in the mall, and has proven to be exceedingly popular even during off-peak hours.

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!

Seoul in a Sandwich is one of the latest ventures by homegrown Singapore F&B group, Seoul Garden Group. The kiosk sits in the basement of the newly-revamped Century Square, and is where you can get the perfect grab-and-go lunch. Seoul in a Sandwich promises "soul in every bite" in their East-meets-West creations where European breads encounter Korean fillings.
