Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria - Delicious Italian Hospitality

Italian food is all about simplicity and freshness. And passion. Passion is the single most important ingredient in Italian cuisine.

And that vital component is often missing in Italian joints found in Singapore. Far too often, Italian cafes and trattorias push out dishes by the numbers with nary a thought about the soul of Italian cooking.

Silver Food News - The Pecking Order, Ethan's Gourmet and The Royal Mail

Located at the heart of the business district is this spanking bar that dishes out some quite decent bar fare.

The Pecking Order may not be the most spacious of spaces, but it is certainly a perfect spot to wind down to some drinks and food at the end of a long working day.

Chinese cuisine can be frustrating for me at times. The lack of invention being my pet peeve, and when some restaurants tries, it comes off as being gimmicky and losing the plot.

That is why, I like it when establishments like CDHK just sticks to its guns and traditions and focus on doing the basic things and nailing it every time.

Men-Tei Ramen - Authentic and Classic Ramen at It's Best

Authentic Japanese ramen is not something that is easily found here, and with the explosion of all sorts of fusion and creatively concocted versions of this Japanese classic happening everywhere, it is almost a relief to find a place that sticks to the original way of making ramen.

This is why it is both comforting and an absolute joy to visit Jason Lim's Men-Tei Ramen at Robinson Road.

Ippudo Ramen Shaw Centre - Comforting Japanese Treats

Ippudo Ramen has opened a new outlet at Shaw Centre and being my first time there, I was not sure what to expect.

The good news is that I walked out a rather happy diner. While the main draw is their ramen selections, Ippudo also has a few other tricks up its culinary sleeves.
