Tokidon: Raising Beef Bowls to a Whole Gyu Level

Alright, let’s cut right to the chase: For $23.90, Tokidon’s Truffle Wagyu Don is crazy good. The earthiness of truffle is released with every bite, working impeccably with a grade six steak like a pas de deux on the tongue. Throw a tiny bit of foie gras to the mix and you have a flavour threesome. Holy cow, I couldn’t hold back the approving moans and the urge to run out of the restaurant getting every passerby to give it a go. Here’s a fair warning – if you intend to try anything else, eat those first. I made the…

Cakerholic: Turning Crazy Cake Ideas Into Reality

If you could wish for any birthday cake in the world, what would it be? Mine would be some sort of a savoury cake, you know, like a twelve-inch burger or a mountain of salmon with a candle on top. I’m just a savoury over sweet kind of person. But my only gripe is, those ‘cakes’ aren’t really cakes. It’s just a round, gigantic version of what we eat for lunch and dinner. I wished there was something that looks like a cake, that makes for a good dessert course and yet, savoury. And then, one day, a fairy god-baker…

Ginett: Casual French Dining Without the Price Tag

Occupying one of the street-level units of Hotel G Singapore, Ginett Restaurant & Wine Bar seems imposing. Despite the casual vibes, everything is impeccably put together: from the tall ceiling, the mezzanine, a wall of wine glasses dangling over the bar counter, to the tiled floor. You probably wouldn’t take a second look at this place even if you have a loose budget. This place looks expensive. Except it isn’t. Poring through the menu, you’d find a glass of wine starting at $6, a cup of latte at $5, and a serving of pasta at $16, all of which doesn’t…

Lawry’s The Prime Rib: A Great Host That Serves Great Roast

Any self-respecting meat-lover, particularly those who adore beef, should have at least heard of Lawry’s. With an 80-year history, someone would’ve told you about an anniversary dinner or a birthday celebration there. After all, they are known for their attention to detail, great hospitality and little surprises, all of which leaves an indelible impression as you celebrate your life’s milestones. Above all, Lawry’s is known for serving up a great prime rib meal. But you should know this by now. What you probably don’t know is that Lawry’s is celebrating its 19th anniversary in Singapore. This July, treat yourself to…

When Coffee Meets The Taste Of Gula Melaka: Dal.Komm Coffee’s Coconut Coffee Mixtur

No matter the time or mood of the day, the intoxicating fragrance of a good cup of coffee would never fail to lift spirits or calm souls. This olfactory experience is probably one of the main reasons why passionate coffee lovers keep coming back for more. But would this experience change, if it was fusion coffee? I had a taste of Dal.Komm Coffee’s limited-edition Coconut Coffee Mixtur, which was a unique concoction of both flavour and fusion. Priced at $8.90, the Coconut Coffee Mixtur is a creation made out of coconut milk, which is blended with ice and topped off…

Edible Beauty: Art, Food, and Charity Come Together For a Truly Palatable Experience

The beauty of nature is inspiring for both artists and chefs alike. In this collaboration, Singaporean botanical artist Lucinda Law creates a series of piquant artworks to bring out the colours, shapes, and forms of edible plants. The paintings are co-curated by Executive Chef Vijayakant Shanmugam of Hilton Singapore, and feature some of Lucinda’s favourite botanical subjects such as pineapples, torch ginger flowers, bananas, and avocados. Dubbed Edible Beauty, the exhibition is a meaningful collaboration between three parties – Lucinda Law, Hilton Singapore’s Verde Kitchen, and non-profit charity organisation Food from the Heart – and will run for two months,…

Nickeldime Alley: Is It Worth Every Nickel, Dime & Penny?

Robertson Quay has no lack of watering holes. Spirits, wines and beers of almost all origins and manufacturing methods can easily be found, with a couple of restaurants having a slightly more exaggerated list of their choice beverage. At 8 Mohamed Sultan Road, Nickeldime Alley stocks up 16 varietals of craft beers, which doesn’t sound as impressive as the offering at Brewerks, but considering that they are all on tap, you know that this place is serious about beer: a beverage that’s casual, easy to drink and often not taken seriously (you don’t see people playing wine pong, do you?).…

2 New Spring Flavours From Haagen Dazs For The Blistering Heat

Ice-cream has got to be one of the most amazing inventions of humans ever. Who would have thought that something of a part-liquid, part-solid state could bring so much joy regardless of season? Be it on days where the sun is simply out to kill with the heat, or netflixing (and chilling) with the sweater weather, ice-cream is perfect for literally any time. To me, Haagen Dazs is the holy grail of all ice-cream – quality ice-cream that never disappoints with every scoop of the spoon. Even got me begging for more once the aftertaste wears off. I believe many…
