Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora @ RWS

Ocean Restaurant opened in 2013 in conjunction with Resort World Sentosa. It was such an irony that one would open a seafood restaurant in an aquarium. SEA Aquarium in RWS was the world’s largest open tank aquarium. And in the depths of the Open Sea tank was Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora. The concept behind…

L’Atelier de Jöel Robuchon @ Bund 18

  This is not the first time in a Jöel Robuchon for me. I had dined at his L’Atelier in Taipei, Hong Kong, Singapore and his flagship Jöel Robuchon in Singapore and Paris. In all these places, the food can only be described with one adjective – decadent.

Restaurant André

Restaurant André is one of the hottest table in the gastronomy scene in Singapore. Since helming Jaan to much acclaimed, André Chiang has made a name for innovative, bold and simplicity to the core cuisine that came from his mixed background.

JAAN @ Swissotel Stamford

JAAN was previously helmed by Andre Chiang who has moved on and started his own restaurant André. Taking over was a Brit Julien Royer that brought his own concepts of seasonal cuisine to the restaurant.

Paul @ Westgate

Paul Maison De Qualité is a chain bistro/cafe/sandwich bar/bakery and has multiple locations around Singapore. The Dinner special at Westgate at $14.80++ for a main and a drink was a steal given the quality of the main choices. Stumbled upon this by chance, but was presently surprised.

Les Amis @ Orchard

Les Amis has been tour de force among the French gastronomy establishment in Singapore. For me, I knew it not only for its classical French cooking, but its impeccable service. And what better place to spend an important evening with the family.

Corner House @ Botanical Gardens

Corner House is a black-and-white bungalow in the Botanical Gardens that used to be the residence of the Director of the Royal Botanical Gardens of Singapore, EH Corner.

Poulet @ Great World City

Chain store specializing in French rotisserie chicken. Selling more than just chicken. Really enjoyed their escargots and baguette. Add a oxtail stew, you have a very good meal for under $40.

Halia @ Botanical Gardens

Tucked at the corner of the ginger garden in Singapore Botanical Gardens is a restaurant aptly named Halia (Malay for ginger). Many of the dishes feature the Zingiber of various varieties and the chef made it clear with a nice little icon next to the menu item for those who have a natural tendency to…

Chez Petit Salut @ Chip Bee

Most of the French restaurants have an expensive version and a simpler, more economical version, like Petit Salut. You have the full-fledged Au Petit Salut that featured a full menu with a more straight-lipped, classy ambiance to match. These are usually not very kids-friendly, especially if you have a toddler. But that does not mean…

Pollen @ Garden by the Bay

Pollen at Garden by the Bay, Jason Atherton’s spin-off in the Lion City, extended the Mediterranean-influenced, French Fusion-styled cuisine that Pollen in London was famous for, and gave it a local twist. Besides that flower-theme, it also has dessert bar that featured an ex-E Bulli chef with some really molecular dessert creations. We visited the…

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon @ Taipei

Joël Robuchon is the most Michelin starred chef in history. His flagship Joël Robuchon are the mostly 3-starred, and the L’Ateliers are mostly 2-starred. Taipei does not have its own Michelin list, but if it did, this L’Atelier would have got its well-deserved 2-stars.
