Griglia Open Fire Italian Kitchen - New Restaurant on Craig Road Brings You a Taste of an Outdoor Italian Barbecue

Griglia_Craig_Road_singapore_menuGriglia, the new kid on Craig road, aims to transport diners to a 'grigliata' — an outdoor barbecue party that the Italians often indulge in with their loved ones. It's always a hearty affair; everyone brings along fresh produce and throws them onto the grill over a strong fire fueled by charcoal. When produce is that fresh, all you need is a light sprinkling of salt and some top quality olive oil to bring out the best in them. And that's exactly what Griglia is all about. The menu is centered on dishes cooked on a custom-made cast iron grill flown in from Russia, and diners can expect unique dishes built with lightly-seasoned ingredients that are reminiscent of the "mix and match" concept typically observed at grigliatas where attendees pile their plates with anything they desire from the grill.

OSTERIA BBR by Alain Ducasse - The Best New Restaurant in Singapore 2021

osteria_bbr_raffles_hotel_dinner_menu
When BBR by Alain Ducasse first opened its doors at Raffles Hotel Singapore back in 2019, I was beyond excited. After trying the food and drinks for the very first time there, I was obsessed. I couldn't even get a reservation after the opening night. Unfortunately, shortly after their grand opening, covid hit and the spacious and beautiful restaurant had to close. It's been more than a year since and the restaurant has recently reopened as OSTERIA BBR by Alain Ducasse, focusing on ingredients sourced from the Italian Riviera.

Miyagi Zao Fox Village at Shiroishi - Happy Foxes, Happy Visitors

Ever since I saw pictures of the Fox Village back in 2014, visiting it has been on my bucket list. So when I booked my trip to Japan back in March, I knew that I had to make it here! Our original plan was to travel here from Tokyo but we made a last minute decision to go from Kyoto instead. We left Kyoto at 8am in the morning, arrived at Tokyo around noon to deposit our luggage in the lockers, and made our way to Shiroishi-Zao from there.
