Teochew Cuisine Restaurant is nestled under a HDB block in Bukit Batok. It isn’t very centrally located, yet it’s open 24 hours and sells delicacies such as abalone and fish maw.
I’ve been to Park, a cafe by day and bistro by night, quite a few times since my foodie sister raved about it upon its opening. Little tidbit: The eatery is lined with solar panels and is constructed from containers taken apart and reassembled on site.
The dishes here have been hits and misses, and a recent brunch was a little horrifying. Let me get to that in a bit.
We ordered a mocha, cappuccino, grilled mushroom sandwich, side of bacon and a salmon salad (all below).
The first to arrive was a lone coffee, and I promptly began taking photos of it while my companion was talking. After about five minutes, the server returned and asked, “have you drank this?”
Wandering around the Botanic Gardens in the dark is no fun, but it can have a delicious ending if you’re going for dinner at Corner House.
My sister, with her evil plans to fatten me up, surprised me with one of the most awesome buffets on my birthday. I confess I thoroughly enjoyed growing fatter over the two-and-a-half hours.
The Knolls at Capella has a Sunday brunch buffet (from $128++), with options for alcohol such as champagne, beer and cocktails, but we’re not drinkers (unless you count copious amounts of bubble tea). We opted for the non-alcohol option, which comes with a free flow of mocktails, soft drinks and fresh juices.
Injuring the roof of my mouth (I amaze myself how I do things) means soupy food. And the first thing on my mind was Ramen Keisuke Tori King. The rich chicken-stock ramen topped with grilled chicken thigh is delicious and value for money.
Tori King is just one of Keisuke’s many ramen branches, but the reason why I keep coming back here is the chicken stock and meat. Most places serve only pork broth, if not it’s salt or soya based. But what about people who do not want to eat pork? (those poor cute pigs). Well that’s where Tori King comes in.
Adrift by celebrity chef David Myers is styled like a restaurant-bar and is said to serve dishes prepared using fresh Californian produce, with Asian inspiration. Here’s what we had during Restaurant Week:
My last Restaurant Week meal was at Buona Terra, an Italian restaurant nestled in a refurbished colonial bungalow in Scotts Road. I had read excellent reviews of the place and was looking forward to trying it.
