CUT by Wolfgang Puck @ Marina Bay Sands, Singapore ~ One Of The Best Steaks In Singapore!

CUT by Wolfgang Puck is the celebrity chef's modern take on the American steakhouse, and widely acclaimed to be one of the very best in the United States.

Its third outpost debuted in Singapore's Marina Bay Sands in 2010, and has been on my to-go list for a long time. The only thing that's holding me back is the imaginable cost of a dining experience there.

Understandably, premium steak comes at an equally premium price. It's not something that my wallet allows on a frequent basis, but reserve for celebratory occasions worth splurging on. So when our dear boy wanted to eat at CUT for his birthday meal, CUT it shall be.

Wildfire Burgers! Now At 313@Somerset!

With BWB nestled away (and easily forgotten) in the roof garden and the impending closure of EWF at Orchard Central (on 3rd Jan 2016), the recently opened Wildfire Burgers at 313@Somerset could possibly be the best convenient solution if you're looking for a gourmet burger fix around Somerset area.

This is Wildfire's 2nd outlet after Evans Road with a much more accessible location. Situated just across Bedrock, we find it to be quite a nice spot to chill over some specialty burgers and drinks. It was my birthday lunch (thanks to my beloved brother Daniel for the blessed treat) and I so so so wished not to return to the office after that lol.

London Fat Duck @ Scotts Square, Orchard ~ Go For Their Signature Roasted Duck!

December may be the month for turkeys, but for something which we can enjoy in all seasons, ducks would be the choice of poultry. No, make it... Roasted Ducks!

London Fat Duck is a Hong Kong-style restaurant nestled in the basement of Scotts Square along Orchard Road. Besides the signature London Roast Duck, their menu also offers other barbeque delights such as char siew, crackling pork belly, as well as wanton noodles, congee, and dim sum. Very much the kind of Hong Kong comfort food not unlike what we can find at Crystal Jade or Imperial Treasure.

Salt Tapas & Bar By Luke Mangan @ Raffles City ~ Make It A King Feast This New Year's Eve!

Salt Grill & Sky Bar by Luke Mangan (Ion Orchard) offers one of the best views for high in the sky fine dining in Singapore, but for a more casual and boisterous meal experience, its sister restaurant Salt Tapas & Bar (Raffles City) would be just as fantastic.

PinkyPiggu was belly happy to have a preview of Salt Tapas' King Feast NYE Menu which is only available for one day only on 31st December 2015! Feast on the seafood centric King Of The Sea or be satiated by King Of The Land for carnivore you? It could be a very tough choice, as both menus have its own merits to boast of.

The Carvery @ Park Hotel Alexandra ~ Great Buffet Line-up Of Festive Meats & Dishes!

Best known for the specialty premium roasts in their buffet line-up, The Carvery is a place which carnivore me has been intending to visit for quite awhile.

And the timing couldn't have been better! This stalwart restaurant of Park Hotel Alexandra (located next to Ikea) is currently welcoming their first Christmas this year with a stunning special yuletide offering of festive meats and dishes from 11th to 31st December 2015!

Whether it's for Christmas or New Year, this would be a suitable venue for feasting and merriment with loved ones.

Dapper Coffee @ Amoy Street ~ Café By Day, The Spiffy Dapper Bar By Night

Since I need to be at Tanjong Pagar to run some errands, so might as well meet my friend for lunch first as his office is in the vicinity. We thought Dapper Coffee at the nearby Amoy Street would be a nice place to catch-up over some food.

The café is located on level two of a shophouse unit, serving coffee in the day and morphing into The Spiffy Dapper, a hipster bar popular for their cocktails, when evening falls.

Oxwell & Co @ Ann Siang Hill, Chinatown ~ Superb Food & Venue! Check Out What They're Offering This Festive Season!

Nestled amid the vibrant dining vicinity of Ann Siang Hill is Oxwell & Co, a British inspired gastro-pub which has been around since 2013.

Its three-storey shophouse premises includes a casual bar on the first floor for refreshing tipples, an elegant hall on the second floor where the main dining takes place, and a private function room on the third level that is reminiscent of a rustic drawing room complete with eccentric British touches.

We went to check out what the restaurant is offering on its menu for this festive season, and were pleased to see three dining options that caters well to different group sizes.

Jones The Grocer @ Dempsey Hill ~ A Look At Their Refreshed Menu & Revamped Premises

Jones The Grocer is one of the pioneer stores in Singapore to offer premium gourmet merchandise sourced and selected from around the globe, and showcases these through their in-store café menu for patrons to enjoy.

Putting the recent liabilities woes behind them, they've now bounced back with a refreshed menu at their revamped premises at Dempsey Hill.

The space is certainly inviting with natural daylight and high ceiling. Let your tummy-state decide if you should sit down for a meal, or do a little tour of the food emporium first.

One Man Coffee @ Fusionpolis ~ Serving Aromatic Coffee & Delicious Sandwiches

One Man Coffee at Upper Thomson Road is one of the few cafés in Singapore which I make frequent return visits to, for the simple reason that I like their coffee.

(Read: One Man Coffee ~ A Lovely Café Along Upper Thomson Road. Must Order Their Brioche French Toast!)

Besides the other outlet at Serangoon Village, their latest branch to open is at the business hub of Fusionpolis near Buona Vista (nearest mrt: CC23 One-North).

The location makes it perfect for office executives in the area whose morning doesn't start until they have their first cuppa of the day. Wake up! Wake up!

Caffé Bene @ Vivocity ~ Popular Coffeehouse Chain From Korea Opens In Singapore

First opened in year 2008 in Korea, Caffé Bene has since grown in popularity to an expansion of over 1,500 stores worldwide. The number is still growing, with the opening of Singapore outlet on 18 November 2015 marking another addition.

Caffé Bene is literally translated as "good coffee". The branch at Singapore's Vivocity (located on level 2, next to Sushi Tei) mirrors the concept of serving brewed coffee, hot and cold beverages, waffles, gelato, not unlike the menu that is being offered in Korea.

Oh yes, we can enjoy Bingsu, those refreshing Korean shaved ice dessert, here as well.
