I’ve passed The Tavern multiple times on my way to Mohamed Sultan road, but have never really peeked into this inconspicuous restaurant along the road. But boy was I in for a surprise.
The Tavern offers Swiss and Continental in an intimate shophouse, seating just 45 persons. Not something I expected amongst the roadside coffeeshops just beside.
Known for its great service and excellent traditional European food, The Tavern is a popular haunt with the rich and famous of Singapore. A lot of emphasis is placed on hospitality and the owner is always ready to go the extra mile.
“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.
“Come Yum Cha at Changi”
3 x $50 Yum Cha voucher giveaway! Enter the contest on my Facebook page.
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.
“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.
“Cantonese Fine-dining Appreciation”
Royal Pavilion is a new 142-seater Cantonese fine-dining restaurant helmed by Executive Chef Chung Ho Shi, and tastes as good as it looks. The interior is designed by award winning designers, as well as featuring a grand chandelier; something not usually seen in a Chinese restaurant.
A combination of classic Cantonese dishes with a more contemporary style, the setting is very comfortable and suitable for corporate lunches or dinners. Daily made, fresh dim sum is also going to be part of the tasting menu today along with chef’s tribute to Cantonese soups, poultry and use of fresh seafood.
“Bistecca Alla Fiorentina Steak”
On the latest quest to try all the outstanding steakhouses in Singapore, I’ve arrived at the chic restaurant Italian theme Bistecca Tuscan to try their Florentine-style steaks.
Quietly located along Mohamed Sultan Road, Bistecca all fiorentina basically means beefsteak in Florentine style, which consist of a t-bone that is grilled over wood/charcoal with very basic seasoning like salt and pepper.
