Sushi Airways – Japanese Food in a Plane

Sushi Airways is the brain child of ex-Grand Hyatt chef Wong Eng Chun. It is based on the idea of fresh seafood that are air-flown 4 times a week to the little city state of Singapore. Carrying on the theme and for a little bit of fun, the restaurant is modelled as the interior of an old-school, propeller airplane (a 1930s Douglas DC-30 for those … Continue reading Sushi Airways – Japanese Food in a Plane

Kok Sen – Outstanding Food in a Horrible Place

Kok Sen on Keong Siak Road came highly recommended by many. It is such a Zi Char institution (Chinese restaurant) that it will be impossible to get a table without reservation even as early as 6.30pm on the weekend. The food is fantastic and there are many great signature dishes that stands out as Singapore’s best. Having said that, the place is unpleasantly dirty, poorly … Continue reading Kok Sen – Outstanding Food in a Horrible Place

Dutch Colony Coffee Co. – Top Notch Artisanal Coffee House

I was really excited about going to Dutch Colony Coffee Co. on Frankle Avenue this morning. I have read so much about the incredibly wonderful coffee that they represent.

The ceiling is raw with exposed wiring, the support structure of the center piece wooden table is made out of steel water pipes and … Continue reading Dutch Colony Coffee Co. – Top Notch Artisanal Coffee House

Forture Seafood Steam Boat – A Torture Indeed

Dinner at Forture Seafood Steam Boat restaurant on 27th March 2015 is officially the worst meal I had in quite a long while. The food was bland, overcooked in most instances and service was non-existence. It was like stepping into a taxi after the taxi driver has had many cigarettes in the car with the window closed and having him being rude to you as … Continue reading Forture Seafood Steam Boat – A Torture Indeed

Koh Grill and Sushi Bar – The Home of “Amazingly Good” Sushi‏

If you are a self-respecting Singapore-based sushi eater,  you should have tried or at least heard of Shiok!!! Maki. It has put Koh Grill and Sushi Bar onto the culinary map of this little Island. “Shiok” is Singaporean slang for “amazingly good”.

Mr Prata – Functional 24 Hours Joint‏

Mr Prata on Evans Road is quite an establishment after being in business for so many years. I wonder how many pratas (Indian pancake) they have churned out since opening their doors for business! The place is a basic….. no-nonsense kinda place. Functional tables matched perfectly with…. functional chairs! But it does have a large air-conditioned area which sits at least 50 pax. Oh well, no … Continue reading Mr Prata – Functional 24 Hours Joint‏

I wanted a special place to treat my wife on her birthday and what better place to explore than Henri Charpentier. The place is as much about the “wow” in looks as it is in taste. We were greeted by shocking pink carpet as we made our way to what is suppose to be the best of sweet indulgences this side of Asia. Through a set … Continue reading Henri Charpentier – Underwhelming Decadent Sweet Indulgence
