Birds Of A Feather @ Amoy Street ~ Contemporary Western Sichuan Food In A Beautiful Garden-Like Setting



There is this quote which goes "People who love to eat are always the best people". I guess the group of us foodies are the best then as we flocked to Birds Of A Feather..... to eat of course! Lol!

The all-day dining, café and bar nestled along Amoy Street is inspired by the idea of people flocking together as birds do. Its food is described to be contemporary Western cuisine with a pronounced Sichuan influence.

I heard numerous positive reviews about the place since its opening at the end of last October, so was pretty excited to make this visit to try their offerings from the new expanded menu, as well as the recently-launched Weekend Chirpy Brunch.

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.
