Brunch at Shelter in the Woods - Refined Elegance Incognito

Without missing a beat, he moves with immense grace and serenity. And with great care he dresses each plate he puts out with the utmost of precision. Nothing is left to chance.

Yet, as the dish forms slowly in front of your eyes, there is a sense of natural beauty and sublime elegance. This is the work of Chef Masashi Horiuchi.

Paddy Hills - A Different Kind of Asian Themed Bistro

Paddy Hills has gotten a lot of social medial attention recently. Mostly for its very instagrammable food photos for their day menu.

By night, however, their western cafe fare is replaced by Asian tapas food which has a very distinctive Korean influence among the items.

Moosehead Kitchen and Bar may not be the most spacious eatery around, but let's just this get this out of the way. Their food is sublime.

d'Good Cafe - Simply Charming and Wondrously Cosy

There is so much to adore about d'Good Cafe that I have absolutely no idea where to begin. Perhaps I should start with the fact that it is found in the heart of Holland Village.

It occupies the 2nd and 3rd storeys of a shophouse and their signage is barely visible, save for a glass door with steps leading up to its charming setting.

Flock Cafe at Ghim Moh - Another Gem of a Cafe

The original Flock Cafe at Tiong Bahru has been around for awhile, but just a few months ago, they have opened up a new outlet in the heartland area of Ghim Moh.

I have never been to the original cafe, but judging from their latest establishment, there might be plenty of reasons now to check out the first one as well.

Mouth Restaurant has a very exciting and tempting 6-course menu for under $40 per person and it is very good value for money.

Included in this mouth-watering (sorry, couldn't resist the pun) set is a gorgeous chilled abalone served in a glorious black bowl, complete with smoky dry ice following out.

The Snack Culture Company - Around the World in 9 Plates

Snack Culture is the reason why we find so much passion in food blogging. By all accounts, they are considered an indie outfit against the more reputable fine dining establishments out there.

It started out as a straightforward bakery, before deciding to venture into lunch and dinner menus. And it is a fairly small space.

boCHINche - Classy and Elegant Argentinian Fare

As you walk in boCHINche, you are instantly greeted with a sense of class and elegance. There is a grocer near the entrance to entice you with some of the imported produce from the land of Maradona.

There is a cool looking, wood finished look to the place. A bar counter suggests that it is not all posh and watering hole seekers will feel equally at home here.
