Where to Get Drunk in Singapore

I know I should preach responsible drinking, pretend I never get drunk and generally be an upstanding citizen. And I do try. Honest I do. But I’m far from perfect. What the hell though. Fact is. I don’t mind a drink, or 10. I’m pretty good through the week generally, but I like to let […]

Pasta Pasta Pasta!

Pasta. That five letter word instantly evoking memories of all things Italian. Nowhere does pasta taste better that’s for sure. When you live far from Italy though you must get your fix elsewhere. Singapore has no shortage of Italian restaurants, all offering one form of pasta or another. My favourite pasta restaurants tend to be […]

A Red Meat Feast

If I go too long without a fix of red meat I tend to fade a little. Generally I don’t cook red meat at home, it’s something I save for going out. Which means that I expect for it to be good when I order it. I should also mention that I’ve had two recent fails […]

Not Your Standard Supermarket Steak

Regular readers will know that I only write about a restaurant multiple times if it deserves the attention. Well the steak at SPRMRKT Kitchen & Bar definitely deserves the attention. I’ve written a post about dinner at SPRMRKT before, but that dinner was a lot different to my most recent dinner. In fact the first […]

Tips for Three Days in Perth

I’ve been asked a lot recently about what I’d do with three days in Perth. Since I’ve visited now a few times, and last time for three days, I decided to write a post with some tips. Accommodation If you want to stay in the city the two hotels I’d suggest are Como The Treasury […]

5 Brand New Brunches

It’s always good to know about new brunches. Most of you have probably heard by now that breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. But on a weekend breakfast moves into brunch mode. There’s not only time to chill out but the weekend is always an excuse to splurge on something special. Ideally, if […]

Fat Prince Middle Eastern

I love the exoticism of Middle Eastern interiors. At Fat Prince it’s the little touches like hand imported tiles on the bar, adorable Turkish coffee cups and skillets for cooked eggs that bring an authentic taste of Turkey to downtown Peck Seah Street. Then there’s The Ottoman Room out the back. The room has been luxuriously […]

A Ramen Mission

Where was the first place you ever tried ramen? It was Singapore for me. Ramen is pretty much the epitome of the perfect comfort food. The combination of my trip to Japan back in January and the cooler, rainy weather lately, has been the perfect incentive to investigate more ramen options around Singapore. And I […]

Keep Cup Mission

Since the start of the month I’ve been on a Keep Cup mission. I’ve decided not to use any take away cups for coffee. Instead either use my Keep Cup or drink my coffee in house. It hit me recently that I have two take away coffees nearly every day. So aside from the financial […]

Singapore’s 10 Best of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017

Last month, amid a lot of hoo-ha, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 were announced. Like Michelin before them, Asia’s 50 Best has a long and controversial history. Whilst I’m not one to pay too much attention to these kind of awards there’s a saying that, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire,” and I can definitely understand why […]
