The mention of Alkaff Mansion at Telok Blangah Hill never failed to conjure up lovely images of leisure outdoor brunches, romantic dinners and lavish weddings. Reality is, the charming two-storey heritage bungalow and its beautiful garden grounds has indeed seen many of such memorable occasions taking place. Built in 1918 and painstakingly restored a few years ago to its glorious splendor, Alkaff Mansion is undoubtedly one of the best destination dining and event venues in Singapore.

Why would I be caught by surprise that Kki ケーキ at 3pm+ on a Thursday afternoon during its opening day was crowded? The popular Japanese-theme patisserie well-known for its delectable cakes must have been missed exceeding much by their fans during their 8-month hiatus when they moved out of their former location at Ann Siang Hill. Well, now it's back! Right here at SOTA, School of the Arts (beside Cathay, nearest mrt Dhoby Ghaut). Happy happy!

Babette ~ A French-Japanese Restaurant & Bar At Parc Sovereign Hotel, Singapore. BEST Matcha Lava Cake Ever!
Babette at Parc Sovereign Hotel is the latest restro-bar addition to the hipster stretch of Tyrwhitt Road at Jalan Besar area where popular cafés Chye Seng Huat and Willowsill Pies resides. The 2nd brainchild (1st is Chillax Çafé at Serangoon Gardens) of radio 98.7FM DJ Darren Wee, it was not that totally surprising to have the man himself served us personally at our table. I was too shy to say hi :p

It seems that nowadays we do not have to try too hard to remember the dates of traditional festivals anymore, because the appearance of those festive treats itself will serve as the best reminder for impeding celebrations. Mooncakes are an quintessential part of the Mid-Autumn festival, which falls on September 8 this year, and the collection that BreadTalk has unveiled will certainly add a delectable sparkle to the occasion.

There is something insanely sexy about Manhattan. From the moment we went beyond those mysterious black lacquer panels which flanked the entrance, the lush opulence of this swanky hotel bar at Regent Singapore time-traveled us back to 19th century's Golden Age of cocktails, fine drinking and gourmet bites. Reminiscent of glamorous old New York yet exuding an upscale contemporary feel. Dark. Intimate. Sexy.

With the launch of Orchard Gateway, yet another shopping mall at Somerset, we are more spoilt than ever with increasing retail and food options along Orchard Road. This is where Outback Steakhouse, the largest steakhouse chain in the world has chosen to open its second outlet in Singapore (finally!). The question at the back of our minds was "what took them so long?"

The Cathay Restaurant (国泰) is one of the grand dames of Chinese cuisine in Singapore, but little did we know that it actually started out as a Western restaurant back in 1940, before making the identity switch in 1951. Its days of exotic cocktails, dance floor and resident band which would entertain every night with popular Chinese songstresses are long gone, but still stands strong today as a popular destination for dim sum and sumptuous ala carte dinner buffet of over 60 items!

Appare (天晴) Udon & Tempura Japanese Restaurant ~ The Place To Go For Instagram-Lovely & Delicious Food
Appare's (天晴) main selling point is their udon and tempura, but what first attracted me to visit this Japanese restaurant at Novena Square 2 (Just above NS20 Novena mrt station) is their impossibly cute animal character sushi photos which I saw on Instagram! Well, I guess most of us are visual creatures and easily captivated by pretty things naturally. Food when it's enticingly presented will add to the enjoyment level of an overall dining experience to a certain extent. I'm happy to say that Appare has managed both presentation and taste aspects of their dishes rather well. Their tempura is especially delicious!

PinkyPiggu is feeling very excited... because in this post, I'm gonna share with you about ~ Moosehead Kitchen & Bar ~ one of the BEST places I've been to this year where I LOVE EVERY DISH that was served to us. SO DELICIOUS! It's such a pity that we only came to know about this indie gem recently, when it has already been opened over a year since July 2013. Well, better late than never. My friends and I were pretty sure this visit isn't going to be our last.
