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.
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.
Most restaurants in town would be super packed during lunch & dinner, and reservations sometimes can disappoint as well. But many forget that there are restaurants in hotels, and usually less crowded than in commercial buildings. Having considered the ambience, quality of food, portion size, services rendered, and price point; I feel it is good bang-for-buck to be dining at Cook & Brew
As the saying goes, Sundays are fun days. If you want to avoid time wasting, fighting for a parking lot, and you want to escape from the crowded Singaporean haunts; to have your quiet & peaceful Sunday brunch buffet… Seasonal Tastes is the place to be.
I chanced upon the open invitation for FLS Amateurs Championship, hosted by Food League Singapore, sponsored by Wing Zone, and I thought, we only live once, and I won’t know my personal best, until I participate – so I signed up for it.
Kway Chap, to confused locals & modern Chinese descendants, is the braised assortment of meats, bean-curd sticks, pig organs, peanuts & pickled vegetables. But in truth, Kway Chap is none other than the large folds of rice sheets, boiled & served with a dash of dark soy based braised sauce.
