SBCD Korean Tofu House @ Tanjong Pagar Centre ~ Delicious Soontofu With Soft & Silken Beancurd!



We love tofu. All the more reason to love it when it's soontofu!

Essentially a soft beancurd stew in Korean cuisine, "soon" in "soontofu" means soft. It is also known as "sundubu" or "soondubu".

SBCD Korean Tofu House which opened earlier this year offers diners a chance to savor hand-made, soft and silken tofu that is freshly-prepared every morning using soybeans specially imported from Korea. It forms the basis of dishes offered at this casual dining joint, ranging from a variety of stews to even pancake.

Kra Pow Thai Street Food @ Far East Plaza ~ Hidden Gem With Cheap & Good Food! Shiok!



Far East Plaza has long lost its heydays as a street fashion haven. When I do visit the mall nowadays, it's usually for mani-pedi sessions and lunch/dinner following that at..... Kra Pow Thai Street Food!

The casual eatery has somewhat took position as my default dining choice since it opened a year ago at the corner of level 3. Why? Simply because the food is good and cheap.

I guess many others would agree. Business at Kra Pow (meaning "holy basil" in Thai) has been steadily growing and it had recently taken up another unit to accommodate more dine-in customers.

O Mamma Mia Singapore Opens At Woodlands Causeway Point, The Clementi Mall & Changi City Point Serving Pastas & Pizzas!



The company which brought Llaollao into Singapore is now presenting another concept from Spain..... O Mamma Mia!

Specializing in Italian pizzas and pastas, O Mamma Mia boasts of 23 outlets across Spain and has recently ventured onto our shores. Two outlets are already launched in Woodlands Causeway Point (16 March) and The Clementi Mall (24 March). The third at Changi City Point will be opening this May.

If you're wondering whether O Mamma Mia is Spanish or Italian, it is actually a marriage of both.

Dookki Singapore, Korean Tteokbokki Buffet @ Suntec City ~ Delicious Eat-All-You-Can Spread At Only $18.80++



As I was drafting this post on Dookki Singapore, my Korean colleague sent me a text.

"Found a great tteokbokki restaurant! It's really nice! I recommend you to visit!"

A "thumbs-up guarantee + chop" from a Korean herself? I could feel her delight and it was easy to understand her excitement. My friends and I had visited Dookki a week earlier and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there too.

Opened just two weeks ago in Suntec City and the first of its kind in Singapore, Dookki is a Korean tteokbokki (rice cake) buffet concept restaurant from South Korea which was established in 2014. It currently has more than 100 outlets worldwide so I guess that says a lot about its popularity.

Song Garden Chinese Restaurant @ Mercure Singapore Bugis ~ Serving Dim Sum & Modern Cantonese Delights



Dinner recently was a scrumptious affair at the 4-month old Song Garden Chinese Restaurant which serves dim sum and modern Cantonese delights.

The elegantly-fitted restaurant occupies almost the entire level two of Mercure Singapore Bugis hotel. Besides the main dining hall, there are seven private rooms to cater to groups of various sizes, including one which has a large white marble table that can seat upto 25 guests!

It even has a fully-automated Lazy-Susan which spans about 2.5 metres and can be operated by a remote control. If I'm the one holding it, I will make sure each dish always stops in front of me first hahaha!

Coastes @ Siloso Beach, Sentosa ~ Beachfront Dining Bar Introduces A Refreshed Breakfast & All-Day Dining Menu



Admittedly, I'm not a beach nor sun person. My fats begged to be hidden (no bikinis for me sob sob), and I don't like being exposed to the sun's harmful UV rays.

But when it comes to beachfront dining, it's a different story altogether!

Tucking into chicken wings, burgers, pizzas, pastas and seafood while overlooking the scenic sea, enjoying seaside rustic charm, laid-back vibes and even occasional fireworks? Now, that's my kind of "beach activity"! Lol!

Coastes, which is situated along the golden stretch of Sentosa's Siloso Beach, offers exactly this kind of dining experience.

Canton Paradise Opens New Outlet At The Shoppes, Marina Bay Sands



Canton Paradise has recently launched its sixth outlet at Marina Bay Sands.

Located above where the skating rink and Kuro-Obi by Ippudo are, the restaurant serves up Hong Kong-style noodles, congees, and roast meat, as well as Cantonese wok dishes.

Dim sum is available all day here! I really don't mind having those little nuggets of deliciousness at anytime, especially when the custard buns came looking impossibly cute!

Yhingthai Palace @ Purvis Street ~ The Thai Restaurant With A Michelin Bib Gourmand Award



Never judge a restaurant by its appearance. From the looks of its imposing store front, Yhingthai Palace all along gave me the impression that the Thai food it serves is expensive and the place is somewhat a trap for unsuspecting tourists.

Whenever I passed by the establishment at Purvis Street, I always gave it a skip and headed for other eating places nearby like Yet Con, Chin Chin or even Gunthers.

That was until a friend told me that she and her family dine there quite often. "Food is reasonably-priced and good!" It then dawned on me that my myopic view had turned out to be so wrong.

Throw in a Singapore 2016 Michelin Bib Gourmand recognition, it felt like I was hit with a "what have you been missing?" moment. The only way to get over it is to make a visit!

DON HO Social Kitchen & Bar @ Keong Saik Road ~ East Meets West Small Plates, Vibrant Vibes & Great Service



We had a date with Don Ho!

Not the man, but the restaurant. Nestled within The Working Capitol at Keong Saik Road, Don Ho Social Kitchen & Bar is named after Don Ho, the late Hawaiian musician who is also lauded as the ambassador of the aloha spirit.

I absolutely adore the premises' tropical-themed interior which well-reflects this inspiration. Vibes are casual, fun and vibrant, setting an ideal tone for chillaxing evenings over food and drinks with friends.

Escape Restaurant & Lounge @ One Farrer Hotel & Spa ~ Durian Fried Rice, Eat-All-You-Can Food Spread & Teochew Porridge Buffet!



DURIAN FRIED RICE??? I'm totally sold! Nevermind that my body's unwell (probably too heaty) just a few days before our dinner date.

We definitely have to make the trip to Escape Restaurant & Lounge for that unique durian fried rice!

Located on the ground level of One Farrer Hotel & Spa, and easily accessible via exit A of Farrer Park Mrt Station (NE8), Escape is the hotel's signature 365 days, 24/7 dining venue (yes, that means supper is included!) with a live interactive kitchen concept that focus on both international and local cuisine.

HO RANG I Korean Restaurant @ Goldhill Centre ~ Comforting Korean Food With A Homey Touch



"Horangi" means "tiger" in Korean so, is Ho Rang I Korean Restaurant the tiger's den? Hahahahaha!

Whatever it is - nothing ventured, nothing gained. We heard good things about this eatery at Goldhill Centre (1 minute walk from Novena MRT Station exit B1), so the group of us marched in for dinner with both curiosity and hunger waiting to be satiated.

But patrons of Your Woul over the last 10 years would not be unfamiliar at all as Ho Rang I is actually a recent rebrand of the establishment. While brothers Edward and Eugene Chia (who also own Dosirak at China Square Central) take care of the operations now, their Korean mum still helms the kitchen.

LOLOKU Poké Bar & Deli @ Keong Saik Road ~ Where Poké Bowls Meet Pink Flamingos



Sashimi, Yusheng, Carpaccio, Ceviche, Crudo... these are just some of the raw fish dishes from different cultures, but the one that is trending in Singapore now would undeniably be the... Hawaiian Poké!

LOLOKU Poké Bar & Deli
is one of the many recent joints to jump on the bandwagon, brightening up the gastronomy street of Keong Saik with their colorful poké bowls.

Their storefront dotted with bright pink flamingo board stands is certainly eye-catching too!

The Disgruntled Brasserie @ Ann Siang Road ~ Revamped Menu With Set Lunch Starting From $28++ Only



Please may I introduce to you The Disgruntled Brasserie, sister outlet of the acclaimed The Disgruntled Chef at Dempsey.

While both restaurants serve modern European cuisine, The Disgruntled Brasserie is the casual counterpart with a more relaxed dining environment.

The brasserie established its presence within The Club at Ann Siang Hill last year in October, and has recently welcomed a newly-appointed Chef de Cuisine Desmond Goh who has just launched a revamped menu last month.

Some of his creations on the new menu got us rather interested!

Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashui Keisuke Bettei @ Peck Seah Street, Tanjong Pagar ~ Delicious Japanese-Style Beef Hamburg Steaks, Amazing Salad Bar & Egg Station!



For fans of Ramen Chef Keisuke Takeda, 13th March 2017 would be the date to note as the 12th addition to his impressive chain of dining concepts - Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashui Keisuke Bettei - will be opened.

The name of the restaurant is quite a mouthful I know haha! That aside, you really wouldn't want to miss the delight of savoring those delicious Japanese-style beef hamburg steaks in your mouth.

Saying this because I've been craving for the hamburg steaks since tasting it a couple of days ago during the preview session. Those slabs of meaty goodness coupled with unlimited servings of salads and eggs were simply..... unforgettable!

Sufood Singapore @ Raffles City ~ 8-Course Vegelicious Feast With New Fresh Salads & Black Truffle Mushroom Soup!



Sufood is said to be the number one vegetarian chain in Taiwan that is renowned for its stylish and innovative cuisine.

With our local branch at Raffles City in its 3rd year running in Singapore's competitive food scene, the restaurant is obviously doing something right with this approach towards healthy meatless dining. Options offered ranges from strict-vegetarian (garlic and onion free) to lacto-vegetarian dishes.

PinkyPiggu and I made a recent visit to try their 8-Course Vegelicious Feast comprising of new dishes which was introduced just two weeks ago on 1st March.
