Masizzim - Comforting Korean Fare in Cosy Surroundings

Masizzim is a mouthful when it comes to saying it out loud, but consider this. This recently opened Korean joint is from the folks behind Chir Chir, which has been a homerun as far Korean wings are concerned.

Very astutely, they have chosen the floorspace next to Chir Chir to open this new place. It has a modern and sparse look about it.

Avenue Joffre - Exquisite Cuisine From Shanghai, Szechuan and Canton

Contrary to what you might have read elsewhere, Avenue Joffre is not a cheap knockoff of some of the best food from China and Canton.

Quite the opposite, the restaurant actually boasts of a number of award winning and reputable names. The areas they cover are also quite interesting, from the spicy delicacies of Szechuan to well executed Cantonese dim sum fare, it stands out for its diversity.

Tin Hill Social - Expertly Classy Food in Laidback Settings

Somewhere just on the outskirts of Turf City, Tin Hill Social is almost inconspicuous. Nestled next to a pony riding school, it is almost a jewel hidden in plain sight.

Step in and you will see it resembles a laid back Australian cafe. High attic ceilings, and a simple decor betrays some very fine cooking in the kitchen.

Joyden Treasures - A Family Treat in Every Sense

Joyden is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the Chinese culinary scene. Synonymous with zhe char styled dishes in a more posh setting, Joyden Treasures is the latest addition to their chain of family style restaurants.

It happens to be my first encounter with the Joyden group as well, and Treasures can be found in a spanking new venue at Kallang Leisure Park.

The Knolls at Capella Sentosa - A Perfect Romantic Dining Experience

Sentosa may be a bustling resort for tourists and foreigners, but for locals seeking a quiet and romantic getaway, The Knolls at Capella may prove to be a compelling choice.

Situated far away from the theme parks and busy aisles of the more tourist friendly sections of the small island, Capella bears more resemblance to an island chateau or mansion.

A Culinary Feast of Two Cities - Fullerton Hotel's Jade Restaurant and Their Michelin Star Guest Chef

Fullerton Hotel has done it again. Their rotating menu of guest chefs has produced another spectacular experience at Jade Restaurant.

From November 2nd until 8th, Chef Lai Ching-Shing from one Michelin star YUE from Hong Kong's City Garden Hotel will be collaborating with resident Jade master, Chef Leong to present a feast of two cities.

Thai Flavours at Gin Khao and High Tea at House at Dempsey

Located in a now more desolated part of East Coast Park, this venue used to be the hive of the area. Where the MacDonalds was the point of meeting for many teenagers decades ago, it is a shadow of its former self.

It is surprising then, that a Thai eatery occupies a large area with spacious seating and a modern but zen looking decor.
