Taking over as NUVO’s head chef is Executive Chef Mark Richards, whom is known for perfecting the sous vide technique in his signature creations.
Mandarin Orchard is without doubt one of Singapore’s top hotels situated right in the middle of Orchard Road. This hotel houses Chatterbox, which revolutionised the concept of eating hawker food in a hotel and made their Hainanese Chicken Rice legendary. We at sethlui.com were invited by Mandarin Orchard for an intimate moon cake tasting gathering recently.
This year, besides the traditional moon cake flavours, the hotel is introducing new exotic flavours that promise to bring your taste buds on an sensory journey with a twist! Continue reading
“Monthly showcase BBQ night”
This is my 2nd trip to Don Quijote Spanish Restaurant on the invite of owner Ken Lim. Don Quijote has a new monthly BBQ spread on the first Wednesday of the month (they sometimes change it around if there’s an event), promising to showcase some of the best Spanish dishes available here.
Just outside the entrance, a live BBQ grill is set up with chefs charring meats a la minute. Let’s go through some of the delicious food you get to experience for this BBQ night.
“Industrial Restaurant with a Twist”
Conveniently located at the edge of Telok Ayer Road is Moosehead Kitchen-Bar, set up by the father-son team of Glen and Daniel Ballis, along with Chef Manuel Valero Ruiz. The restaurant-bar serves both lunch and dinner menus inspired by their travels; and by night it turns into an effortlessly cosy bar – offering an array of exotic and craft beers.
Don’t be misled by the simple shop front though. Its interior boasts more complex details: a mish-mash of global cuisines and quirky, refurbished furniture.
“Swanky global and Asian offerings”
With much greenery around and designed based off agriculture, PARKROYAL on Pickering’s hotel-in-a-garden concept is looking to turn some heads. Lime, the hotel’s signature open-kitchen all-day dining restaurant serves up an extensive spread of Asian flavours and contemporary international favourites in a lively theatrical mood.

Hidden deep in Sentosa, The Knolls at Capella Hotel Singapore is inspired by a seafront view and lends a refreshing resort-like atmosphere.
Serving a mediterranean style cuisine crafted by Executive Chef David Senia, The Knolls caters a luxurious, relaxing buffet meal amidst all the tropical shrubbery perfect for a short weekend reprieve.
“Whimsical charming restaurant”
The White Rabbit is housed in a restored old chapel along the stretch of Dempsey Hill. The historical establishment itself is the main motivation for creating a unique ‘Alice in Wonderland’ concept of The White Rabbit, attempting to bring you to another world.
Other than the amazing architecture, find out what’s in store on the menu in our review of the lunch set.
“Impressive spread of Japanese-inspired eats”
Recently I’ve been somehow finding myself indulging in hotel buffets, and decided to try out Triple Three after my pleasant experience at Japanese Sze Chuan restaurant Shisen Hanten, which is also within the same hotel.
Triple Three is named after the road where Mandarin Orchard, which houses the restaurant, is situated at. I didn’t catch it at first because I was blinded by hunger, but the Triple Three logo is composed of three 三 (Japanese/Chinese character for 3) across the name of the restaurant in the center, which is pretty brilliant typography design.
Triple Three’s buffet also has a ‘daily delight’ theme featuring something unique everyday, which I will be touching on later in this review due to chef delightfully force-feeding me like goose liver.
“Most expensive coffee to try in Singapore”
Renowned bean fanatics, the folk at Geisha Coffee brew a seriously good cup of coffee in a trendy district of Bencoolen Street, one of the many favourite hangout spots for students of LASELLE, since it’s located right opposite the school.
This is where I drank the most expensive black coffee in my life, at SGD $15 a cup. The shop is also named after the Esmeralda Geisha, a variety of coffee originating from Panama.
