Starker Fresh Beer and Bistro at Hillview 2

 This post is brought to you by the good folks from Starker Fresh Beer.

Starker Fresh Beer may be more known for its alcoholic beverages, but they have also joined the fray into the F&B establishments as well.

I was able to attend a special media tasting to try some of their food and drinks at their Hillview 2 outlet and it is a superb place to chill and unwind. And especially for football fans, it's a great place to catch those BPL matches too.

Tsuta Singapore - Delicate and Exquisite Shio and Shoyu Ramen

Michelin Guide's only ramen entry is making its debut in Singapore at Pacific Plaza. Chef Yuki, who is the maestro behind Tsuta in Tokyo is bringing the same quality and excellence here.

As a testament to preserving his pristine and precise approach to his ramen making, everything is sourced at the highest level and even using specially concocted soy sauce and bringing over the special wheat from Japan to construct the noodles.

Tochigi Waygu at Fat Cow - Beef Nirvana For Three Nights Only

Seldom do I rave to the high heavens on food these days, so when I say this is the apex of beef gastronomy, you better believe it.

Fat Cow is a place that I have heard and read raves for some time, but never got around to visiting it for one reason or another. For 3 nights only, visiting Chef Seichi Shinbo brings with him a tasting menu that is guaranteed to dazzle and charm even the most jaded of diners.

Super Loco at Customs House - Possibly the Best Mexican Food in Town

Mexican food has never been my thing. Until now, that is. The Loco chain of Mexican gastrobars have certainly lit up the food scene in town since Lucha Loco opened its doors a few years back.

Adding Super Loco at Clarke Quay to bolster its lineup, it was only a matter of time before the third, and most high end Loco outlet is up and running.

Plentyfull - Scratch Cooking is the Way to Go

Plentyfull may be a mouthfull to say, but it certainly resonates with me with its scratch cooking philosophy and it's insistence of using fresh produce.

In an era where hardly anything you eat is fresh outside, Plentyfull is plenty refreshing when it comes to its cuisine.

Maggie Joan's New Lunch Menu - Rustic Goodness

Despite the injection and relocation of more eating establishments within the Telok Ayer vicinity, Moosehead and it's sibling, Maggie Joan's have pretty much held the banner for the best eateries here.

In fact, some of the relocated ones have actually gone backwards in terms of their food, and is possibly a mistake to compete with the mad scientist brilliance of the double Ms.

Lan Ting Cuisine and Wine - An Exquisite Dim Sum Restaurant in the East

Cantonese dim sum eateries are pretty common these days, but to get quality renditions of dim sum dishes is much harder than you think.

Between the coffeshop variants like Swee Choon and the restaurant settings of Crystal Jade, you are not likely to find anything else in between.

OCF Singapore - Refined Modern French Cuisine

Elegant and refined cooking is almost a rarity these days. Too much emphasis on gimmicky fusion food has taken the focus away on what's most important in the culinary scene.

And that's sublime cooking skill and fresh ingredients. Both of these critical factors are happily in full evidence at OCF Singapore at the Arts House.
