“The Boldest Grill”
Since SKIRT opened, I’ve always wanted to try their famed dry aged beef, but my reluctance to travel to Sentosa has always countered my want. I mean, you have to pay a $4 toll fee just to get to this freaking island.
I finally got down to eating at SKIRT while researching for my best steak guide in Singapore, and boy am I glad I did.
“New Brunch Menu”
Tucked away into the crooks of culturally rich of Desker Road sits a quaint structure, much unalike its neighbours. Nuzzled cosily alongside old, rundown shophouses, Bellwethers Bistro Bar adds a touch of flurry to the otherwise sluggish atmosphere of the district.
F&B is a very tricky business. Though it can look like fun, crazy and very organized chaos at times, it does have many factors and variables to calibrate before an establishment can be successful and prosperous. What most establishments don’t usually understand is that there are many minor details that may snowball into a bigger problem that may take time to unfurl and remedy.
I am not schooled in a fine institution that educates problem solving and troubleshooting in a service situation but I am a good observer and a thinker and I like to find ways to better certain situations and adapt accordingly. This is what I can offer after much careful observation in my career in F&B.
“Come Yum Cha at Changi”

Since starting the business in 2000, Yum Cha has grown and expanded from 1 to 3 outlets – the most prominent one situated in densely populated Chinatown, another in residential district Serangoon Gardens, and the last one tucked away in the Eastern fraction of sunny Singapore – Changi Business Park, away from the hubbub of the city.
“Rustic, cowboy ambience”
On the search for Singapore’s best steaks, I’ve arrived at FeedLot Steakhouse for judgement.
The front end restaurant arm of Swiss Butchery, FeedLot Steakhouse Bar and Grill aims to showcase what can be done with it’s own high quality meats by shifting from Bukit Timah to Tanglin and rebranding themselves.
“Indonesian Chinese Food”
If you’re craving for a hearty serving of authentic Indonesian Chinese cuisine at an affordable price, Medan Town is the place to go.
Medan Town is a simple, no-frills dining space wedged amongst the many other eateries along Tanjong Katong Road, overlooking the busy district. Don’t be fooled by the lack of pomp and ceremony, however, as the main attraction is the authenticity of the flavours that the city of Medan, Indonesia has to offer.
Amidst the monotony of sounds on a gentle afternoon, vendors exhibit their products and services in a bid to entice the thousands of consumers who thronged the exhibition halls, in hopes of snagging up a good deal.
Food and Hotel Asia (FHA) 2014 is the 19th edition of the this F&B industry event, it’s first held since 1978. Known as Asia’s largest international trade show for the food and hospitality industry, FHA is a 4-day exhibition held at the Singapore Expo Halls 1-9 together with Wine Spirits Asia.
The exhibition is aimed at professionals in the food and hospitality trade, while members of the general public and minors below the age of 16 will be denied entry.
“Seafood fiesta at Treasures of The Sea buffet”
Plaza Brasserie presents “Treasures of The Sea”, a seafood themed all-you-can-eat dinner buffet ($68++) spread that features live stations cooking fresh seafood, mostly of the Asian style.
Executive Chef Jackson Goh also serves up his specialty Curry Fish Head along with various cooking interpretations of Norwegian Salmon.
“A Taste of Nostalgia”
A favoured haunt of Singapore’s most discerning Cantonese food gourmands, Man Fu Yuan is a contemporary Chinese restaurant situated in the heart of renowned hotel InterContinental Singapore. The newly refurbished restaurant boasts Peranakan-inspired interiors of beautiful butterfly chandeliers and elegant hand-painted walls, providing a feast for both the eyes and the taste buds.
The perfect amalgamation of the very best of old and new world Cantonese cuisine, the dishes exhibit a contemporary edge – from tea-infused specialty repasts to delicate handcrafted dim sum, every dish using the freshest ingredients available.
The local internet has been abuzz recently with this latest viral comment spreading, whereby Daphne Maia commented on her Instagram post tagging Roosevelt’s, that the coffee was:
“Possibly worse than drinking horse piss”.
Roosevelt’s cafe then responded with a witty chalk board outside their store not only acknowledging the comment, but firing back. The board as you can see above, says:
“Come taste our coffee that Daphnemaia on Instagram thinks is worse than horsepiss #nothorsepiss”
They even give a 10% discount if you take a picture with their sign!
Clearly, Singapore netizens have been split into 2 camps, with one side calling Roosevelt’s unprofessional and childish for targeting Daphne, while Roosevelt supporters applaud the witty comeback.
