FOC Restaurant

In as few words as possible, FOC by Nandu Jubany at Hong Kong Street is presently the best Spanish tapas restaurant in Singapore. Bar none.  Reasonably priced, exquisitely executed, stylishly decorated and with wonderful service. What more could one ask for in a dining experience?

Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles

Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles @ Pek Kio Market Pek Kio Food Centre, #01-15 I’ve been coming here since I was a kid and I actually remember my dad and mum bringing me here from as young as 5 to 6 years old. That’s almost 25 years ago and I’m sure the store has been […]

Tong Ah Eating House

The blogging ennui bug got me for a bit. Hopefully I’ve managed to rid myself of it. Anyway, Tong Ah is a cze char place that I wanted to review for quite a while and I’ve finally got around to it. On all my previous visits here, I left suitably impressed and extremely full. This time was […]

Dinner at Alkaff Mansion Ristorante

Alkaff Mansion Ristorante was the second restaurant we went to as part of Singapore’s restaurant week, the first of which was Taratata Bistro (review coming soon). Alkaff Mansion serves Italian cuisine in what I regard as being one of the finest dining environments I have had the opportunity to experience. Let’s be clear, that’s a […]

Nasi Padang by Rendezvous Restaurant Hock Lock Kee

  Rendezvous Restaurant, now located at the Central, has been around for more than 70 years and is synonymous in Singapore with Nasi Padang. When I reviewed Samy’s Curry at Dempsey, I mentioned how Samy’s was one of the restaurants I grew up with – Rendezvous was another. Lunch at my grandparents’ place was a […]
