Mother’s Day is this weekend!!! So, if you haven’t thought of the right place to dine at; visiting the heritage that celebrates their matriarchy, is most appropriate. Be sure to make your reservations early, because the Peranakan community take their Mother’s Day seriously.
Cast Iron ensures their quality of ingredients are procured intercontinental & air flown regularly, and almost every dish they serve, are made in-house from scratch. And since they have the luxury of freshness, I believe nobody should deny themselves the Omakase experience.
the ambience was good, music not loud, and nice selection of alcohol & spirits. Initially, I wasn’t sure what’s to be expected for food, considering the setup is more entertainment inclined. But when the dishes began rolling out, one after the next; my perception was altered.
Now, I’m actually pondering what else should I be trying on my next visit.
I think Misato is a really brave concept. Though they may not have the densest of menus in the precinct better known for expensive Japanese restaurants, it distinguishes itself from the pack, in presenting good select dishes. And to have one or 2 anchor dishes in each category they have to offer; at wallet friendly prices, is more than sufficient reason to revisit.
more than 15 Signature Bluefin Tuna selections: Otoro, Chutoro, Akami Sashimi, Super Bluefin Tuna Temaki, Bluefin Tuna & Uni Bomb, Spicy Tuna Maki, Negitoro Don, Akami Tsuke Don, Katsuo Sarada, Katsuo Carpaccio, Special Negitoro Wrap etc.
The Wicked Garlic serves up sincere Italian selections, offering fresh ingredients at very reasonable prices. To be fair, at this price point, you won’t be showered with 5-star immaculate service, consistent with their 2 other prevailing outlets.
This joint at Orchard Cathay Cineleisure being their 3rd outlet in their 4th year of operation, is testament that they’ve been doing it right, and they want greater demographics to experience their craft.
Chef Leah combines her western culinary craft with authentic hand-me-down recipes from the Royal Palace’s kitchen, coupled with her stringent standards of curating fresh & best ingredients; from different corners of the archipelago, and other continents for some meat sources. Her crew prides itself in conjuring their own pastes/ seasonings/ curries from scratch.
The quality & portion of the food is good, and so, don’t expect the price tags to be that of what you would find in Golden Mile Complex (GMC), because you will not find anything close to this.
I find this place to be a good spot for almost any form of chill out, regardless if its colleagues or peers. The quality of the food & beverages is good, and in terms of price point, competitive with most other Korean joints in town.
For a second year running, Chang Sensory Trails (CST) 2017, visited London in late April, San Francisco in late May, and hit the ground running in Singapore, early this month.
I’ve been a fan of Thai cuisines, ever since my maiden encounter in Australia, and in the last decade, tried & tasted authentic ones in Thailand as well. So I find the menu tantalizing, especially with chilled Chang beer!
8 Korean BBQ at The Central Clarke Quay, is the first of the 2 outlets in Singapore, while there are 2 other outlets in USA. The “8” in the name, is found in their signature 8 colors set, comprising of 8 distinct flavored marinates on their choice cut Mangalitza Pork Belly.
OMT offers a list of fusion food on the menu, as well as some familiar ones, so to appeal to the neighborhood demographics. And since it’s sandwiched between 2 big boys offering local favorites, OMT would be the go-to-place for some alternatives, snacks, desserts & beer.
Gila Durian, a celebration of an assortment of 2-3 cherry-picked prized durian subspecies (D24, XO & 猫山王 “Maoshan Wang” – MSW). In all my years of tastings & face stuffing experiences, I’ve never been pampered with Durian, fine-dining style before.
