The Food Blogger Went For A 7 Days Detox, And…

This food blogger went for a 7-Day Detox, and there are the results. First things first, why?

I could not find time to exercise properly, especially […]

49 Seats – A Second Seating At Orchard Central

”Are there only 49 seats available at 49 Seats?” My friend asked. That’s true when they first started out at the first outlet at Blk 49 Kreta Ayer Road. 49 Seats had since expanded beyond 49 seating capacity for their 1st outlet and moved on to their 2nd one at Orchard Central, catering to the […]

I Want My Noodle – The Noodle Shop That Made Us Visit 4 Times

This review could have actually been out 2 months earlier, and perhaps could have helped this restaurant get some good publicity. But it took us 4 visits to write this, of which 3 were unfruitful.

Erwin’s Gastrobar – Happy Hours, Burgers, Brunch at Valley Point

Erwin’s Gastrobar, with a flagship outlet at MBFC, has opened its second at the revamped Valley Point. And it occupied such a big space. This part of River Valley had always been more family and expat-oriented, so it seemed unexpected that an urban concept diner-pub would find itself there. Would that be enough office crowd […]

Boufe – Boutique Cafe At Phoenix Park, Not Buffet

”Is that a café that offers buffet?” My friend asked. I was stunned for a moment, thinking if my pronunciation is that bad. But on second thought, Boufe DOES sound like buffet. Boufe originates from 2 words; namely BOUtique and caFÉ. Combine the two and you will see them in reality, a boutique for the […]

Guac & Go – Salads & Wraps With Guacamole

The IN food and buzz words for now? Detox, cold-pressed juices, salads, smoothies, wraps. Guac & Go has them all. Oh, plus cold-brewed coffee. Time to diet for me. It took me a while to find this salad bar cum café at Maxwell Chambers, and then I realised it took over the space left vacant […]
