“Serving more than just ramen”
Located in B2 of the somewhat quiet Orchard Gateway, Shin-Sapporo Ramen can be quite easy to miss. Opened in May 2014, the Orchard Gateway outlet is the fourth and latest addition to the popular home-grown ramen chain. Using age-old Japanese recipes, many people do mistake this local chain as a Japanese franchise.
“Luxury Butler Hotel Service”
The St Regis Singapore Hotel welcomes guests to a sleek property underscored by contemporary private art collections. Set within Tanglin road, St Regis is within a 10 minute walking distance to the famed shopping district of Orchard road.
“Singapore’s First Adult’s Only Brunch That Hits The Spot”
For those who live the night life, finally there is a reason to wake up early instead – Manhattan’s Sunday Cocktail Brunch. In my humble opinion, Manhattan is the perfect recovery venue to recollect what you did last night over a delicious bloody Mary, an equally delicious Brunch, and chill in the comfort of a stylish bar.
“Fries are potatoes too”
When I hear “Potato Head”, I immediately think of two things:
1. The potato toy with detatchable parts as seen in Toy Story
2. The acclaimed beach club in Bali, Indonesia, that finally made its way to Singapore
Potato Head Folk occupies the iconic pre-war shop house that sits right smack in the middle of hipster heaven. The cuisine concept is international, with wisps of both Asian and Western touches to the menu. The culturally rich Keong Saik area just got a little more entertaining.
Lipton has been one of the longest standing tea brands in Singapore, and also sits constantly in my cupboard as a daily staple. Today at a quaint mansion event, Lipton goes beyond just being an old fashioned cup of tea and shows us how else you can savour this classic brand.
“One of the best bespoke cocktail bars in Singapore”
Bitters and Love has always been a long time haunt for me, having visited on many different occasions and events but never really doing a review. When American Express invited me down for a media tasting as well as to promote their latest tie-up, I knew I couldn’t miss the opportunity again.
“Taste the Revolution – Skyve Reinvented!”
Nestled in the compound of old Monk’s Hill Secondary School and situated just beside Anglo-Chinese School (Junior) is Skyve Wine Bistro. ‘Skyve’ is a word play on how people can skive and avoid work by escaping to this relatively hidden bistro- an apt name for this concept.
“Affordably priced and very value for money”
At review time, K. Cook has only been opened in our sunny island for a mere 2 weeks and judging from the dinner crowd and queue, they seem to have arrived with a mission in mind – to be one of the best Korean BBQs in town.
“A Royal Tipple”
The Royal Mail Bar is an extended beverage arm of the similarly named restaurant on the 2nd floor. The bar has rejuvenated itself and introduces new specialty cocktails and British-inspired tapas to its menus, going with the ever-evolving drinking culture in Singapore with emphasis on creative drinks.
“Singapore meets New York City”
