I still think about my last visit to Tablescape at Grand Park City Hall, where I was blown away by their outstanding Risotto, and delicious Fettuccine that was topped with an unbelievably generous sprinkling of fresh black truffles. The modern European restaurant has undergone some changes, and has a new executive chef at the helm. Hence, you can, of course, expect a refreshed a la carte menu with new creations, and also spanking new degustation menus(4 course - $88, 6 course - $108, 8 course - $128) come dinnertime.

Grand Park City Hall x Tablescape - Exclusive Glamping Picnic on the Rooftop That's Not Accessible Even by Hotel Guests
Glamping and Glampcations have been all the rage for awhile now. But have you been on a glamping picnic on the rooftop of a hotel before? Grand Park City Hall is offering an exclusive glamping picnic experience on their rooftop which is not usually open to even hotel guests. Typically a spot for solemnization parties and private events, the spacious rooftop, which boasts a nice view of the city, is now home to two comfortable tents that offer lots of privacy. Whether you're here for a romantic proposal with the sunset as a backdrop, a cozy get-together with your fave pals, or even an exciting hen's night under the stars, you won't be disappointed.

Basque Kitchen by Aitor - A Mediocre $218++/Pax 8-Course Dinner at This One-Michelin-Starred Restaurant
One-Michelin-Starred Basque Kitchen by Aitor has been on my to-dine-at list for the longest time so when we were planning for our Christmas dinner, I suggested coming here. We made a reservation about a month in advance. Then, the a la carte and usual dinner menu were still available on the site. However, on the day of our visit on 22nd December, we were told that only the festive menu is available. We were taken aback because we were not informed of this, and did not plan on spending $218++ or $278++ pax for dinner. We had wanted to try the signature txuleta and other a la carte dishes, and were even considering the $148++/pax menu. This came as quite a rude shock to us to be honest but since we were there, and had already paid a $200 deposit, we had no choice but to continue on with dinner.

Taking over the spot that Ding Dong occupied for years is Nixta, a new upscale Mexican grill and Bar brought to you by the same folks behind the well-loved Blue Label Pizza. While the restaurant has been around for a couple of months, little has been spoken about them online, and they don't even have a geotag on Instagram! We discovered it a few months ago as it caught our eye as we were just strolling past. We browsed the menu then, and made a mental note to return some day. And here we were.

New Japanese restaurants excite me. I love Japanese food, and I live right across Holland Village, so when I noticed the opening of Takeshi-San, I told my friends that we need to visit. We popped by on a Thursday evening and scored the last available table. It was crowded and packed and we were pretty impressed by the crowd — the food and service must be good right?
Well, unfortunately, that was not the case at all.
