CAPASSO - Modern Italian Restaurant With Unique Pastas & Well-Executed Meats

Capasso italian restaurant singapore

CAPASSO is the new kid in the Telok Ayer/Amoy area which is already home to countless restaurants and bars. Helmed by Chef Fernando Arevalo, a familiar name in the local food scene, CAPASSO is a fearless and bold outfit that pushes out contemporary Italian dishes inspired by memories of Chef Fernando's granddad. The restaurant, which also boasts an extensive selection of wines, whiskies, and yummy cocktails, strives to provide an equal space where women can explore and enjoy whiskies alongside their male counterparts. I love that CAPASSO understands and values the tastes of ladies, and is here to smash the stereotype of whiskies being a drink more suited to the palate of men. Hurray to that!

The Ledbury - The Two-Michelin-Starred Restaurant in London Where I had My Best Meal of 2023

 

The Ledbury michelin starred restaurant london

Discerning Londoners with a penchant for the finer things in life will definitely have been to, or at least have heard of The Ledbury in Nottinghill. The brainchild of famous restaurateurs Brett Graham, Phil Howard and Nigel Platts-Martin have held on to the two-Michelin-star accolade for years before they shut their doors during the pandemic. They reopened to much fanfare, with tables booked up in a jiffy. I was in the UK for 7.5 months and I heard of The Ledbury from a friend who has been in the UK for 11 years. He told me he had the best meal of his life at The Ledbury back in 2015. I was really excited when I managed to get a reservation. Because I was dining alone, and plenty of Michelin-starred restaurants do not take lone diners, I was pretty certain that I wouldn't be able to give myself a birthday treat here. I decided to try my luck and I sent in an email to the team, and thankfully, they welcomed me with open arms!

Best Dog-Friendly Accommodation in Sicily!

Sicily is one of the most beautiful places that I've ever been to. Even though I only had just over a week to spend here, and it was a mad rush visiting 4 different cities, I was really glad that I added it to my itinerary. Sicily is, no doubt, one of, if not the most dog-friendly places in Europe. Sure, Germany. France and Switzerland are incredibly dog-friendly but our four-legged babies aren't allowed in supermarkets. In Sicily, the supermarkets even have trolleys with a designated area for your pups to sit in. I was so amazed and impressed! I love that the people here love dogs! Here are the four dog-friendly hotels or bed and breakfast that we stayed at :

The Best Dog-Friendly Hotels & Airbnbs in More Than 50 Cities in Europe!

Now, after you've booked those air tickets for you and your pup out of the country, it's time to start looking at accommodation options! Here's a list of dog-friendly hotels and airbnbs that we stayed at in Europe! The highlighted ones are really good, and the rest are at least, decent! We did not include the ones that we did not fancy, and we also want to take this opportunity to thank our friends who hosted us! 

I would say that all hotels, except the ones in Greece and those under the Petit Palace group, charge a pet fee that ranges from 8 euros - 35 euros (sometimes per night, sometimes per stay). Airbnbs typically do not charge an extra fee for pets, but I do recall the airbnb in Bilbao charging us an additional 5 euros per day that we had to pay in cash.
