Burlamacco Ristorante @ Amoy Street ~ New Ultimate Recovery Brunch Featuring Unlimited Servings Of Italian Specialties!

It is no secret by now that PinkyPiggu loves pasta. Imagine me saying "no" to a meal where I can have endless servings of pasta? Unimaginable! Lol!

Which is why I said "YES!" to the new Ultimate Recovery Brunch which is happening every Sunday from 11.30am to 2.30pm at Burlamacco Ristorante.

Located along Amoy street, the Italian restaurant is known for its Tuscany specialties since its opening year 2012. With chef-owner Gabriele Piegaia's golden rule of "what you see on the menu is what you see on the plate", we will find a variety of homemade pasta, seafood, grilled meats, gelato and desserts to choose from.

Can order and eat as much as we want for 3 hours!

New Menu At Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory! Available at 313@Somerset, Chinatown Point, Bedok Point, JEM, and Bugis Junction

Many a times when the craving for Korean fried chicken strikes, I don't find myself returning often to Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory even though I love their fried chicken and there's an outlet just minutes away from my office. Why? Because their serving portions are not exactly one or two person friendly, and I don't want to expand horizontally by eating more than I should.

Chir Chir seems to have heard my cries. Now, not only are there some lunch options suitable as a quick meal for individual diners, we can also order the brand's signature Crispy, Garlicky, and Spicy Fried Chicken in smaller portions of 6, 12 and 18 pieces ($9.90/$17.90/$24.90) in specific parts of tenders, or drumlets and winglets!

The restaurant has also recently-launched its revamped menu across all its outlets at 313@Somerset, Chinatown Point, Bedok Point, JEM, and Bugis Junction. I was jio-ed to try the new dishes!

B Burgers @ Cathay Cineleisure Orchard ~ Tasty, Affordable American-Style Burgers With A Japanese Twist

From dressing gentlemen to flipping burgers, homegrown menswear label Benjamin Barker has now ventured into the world of F&B with..... B Burger!

The 62-seater burger joint occupies a prominent space on the ground floor of Cathay Cineleisure Orchard, deceptively looking like any other fast-service food outlets at initial impression.

But we soon found out that this new kid on the block holds a much more promising concept.

Taking inspiration from America's Shake Shack and In-N-Out Burger, B Burger serves classic American burgers but with an interesting Japanese twist. All their burgers are prepared a la minute with fresh-off-the grill handmade patties and warm toasty buns.

Our appetites were more than well-prepared for the host of Christmas perennial favorites, premium roasts, grilled seafood, Western & Asian delights, and..... desserts of course!

Nadai Fujisoba Ni-Hachi @ 100AM ~ Japanese Soba Restaurant With First-Ever Mount Fuji Icy Hotpot!

No, it is not a hallucination. The hotpot you see in the picture above really does look like an ice mountain!

Aptly named Mount Fuji Icy Hotpot, the eye-catching offering is said to be Singapore's first and only ice hotpot. Launched by and only available at Nadai Fujisoba Ni-Hachi, the Japanese soba restaurant located on the third level of 100AM mall at Tanjong Pagar.

Though there is only one store locally, Nadai Fujisoba Ni-Hachi boasts of 119 outlets in Japan where the brand originated from, and prides itself on serving soba noodles that are made freshly in store using high-grade buckwheat flour and wheat flour.

This' the season to be jolly and..... travel? I think so because December is the month when many people spend their year-end holiday out of the country.

The place to be at is..... Royale Restaurant at Mercure Singapore Bugis!
