Mitzi's - Old School Cantonese Zhe Char Goodness

These days, I hardly touch zhe char food anymore, except for the ones in Johor. I actually loathe zhe char in Singapore. Everywhere I go, it's always very badly done.

Often, zhe char stalls (especially those in neighborhood areas) are rushing to fulfill their dinner orders that they tend to be very lax in their cooking.

Brunetti at Tanglin Mall

Tanglin Mall is not a place I visit that often, though I do recall frequenting it in the past. It always has that cozy, quiet ambiance that makes it perfect for shoppers to relax over a cup of coffee.

Brunetti is perhaps the appropriate spot for that cuppa and then some. Tucked away in one corner, it is almost inconspicuous and the straightforward decor and layout is actually quite suited to the fare they serve up.

928 Yishun Laksa - A Spoonful of Laksa Goodness

I have heard of how good this laksa stall is for quite some time, and I happened to be near Yishun one weekend, thus decided to check it out.

It is actually situated in a corner in a HDB block, and if not for the long queue, you might be forgiven that there was nothing really special about this place.

Chef Mikel Badiola of Element at Amara Hotel

His boyish charm had us all at hello. Always armed with a welcoming smile, his English still has the unmistakable Spanish accent, and was almost hard to make out at times.

Despite that, Chef Mikel Badiola had us engaged both with his personality, and his food for the entire evening. Mikel has recently joined the ranks of Element as their Chef de Cuisine.
