Bonta Italian Restaurant
Yup, it’s that time of the year again—when all restaurants and florists make a killing out of besotted lovebirds looking to commemorate the joyous thing that is their lurrrrvve. This year may be a little dodgy—as February 14 coincides with the first day of the Chinese New Year...

Fried "Hing Hwa" Bee Hoon at PUTIEN
Know naught about Putien a.k.a. Heng Hwa (read: a town located in China’s Fujian province) cuisine? Then traipse down to the three Putien outlets at Jurong Point (now open), Parkway Parade and City Square Mall (opening Oct). We dropped by the flagship PUTIEN (127 Kitchener Rd., 6295-6358),...

Mimolette
Mimolette (55 Fairways Dr., 6467-7748) might not be the easiest restaurant to get to, but thanks to a newly revamped menu, making the trip has never been more worthwhile. One notable new standout is a Kurobuta five-spiced pork rack with Vitelot (an ancient type of blue potato) chips with mimolette...

TUDOR GOLD Dark Chocolate Almond Box
There are a lot of “-holics” in the world: Alcoholics, shopaholics, even sexaholics. But for me and my addiction? I’ll take chocolate. What’s that you say? You too? Then I have truly fab news for you. TUDOR GOLD has released a line of dark chocolates clad in spiffy new...

Brunch at Braise - Saffron Porridge with Pan-Seared Codfish
I’ve never really been a champagne brunch kind of person. To crawl out of bed, stuff my eyeballs out, then sink back to sleep again seems a bit indulgent (even for a foodie like me). But when I trooped down to the idyllic Braise (2/F, 60 Palawan Beach Walk, Sentosa, 6271-1929) to try its new...

Man Fu Yuan Restaurant - Dim Sum
Hurray to weekend brunches! Man Fu Yuan Restaurant (2/F, InterContinental Singapore, 80 Middle Rd., 6825-1062) has launched their weekend champagne brunch, which I tried recently. By champagne, these guys mean Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label champagne, no less. Executive Chef Sunny Long has put out 70...

Mango Crumble
If you noticed, the creative factory at Spa Esprit never stops. So when I heard that these guys had just rolled out a brand-new range of desserts at Skinny Pizza (#03-04 Wheelock Place, 501 Orchard Rd., 6235-7823) and Barracks (8D Dempsey Rd., 6475-7787), I squeezed the tasting event into my packed...

The White Rabbit new à la carte menu
Dempsey favorite The White Rabbit (39C Harding Rd., 6473-9965) has launched a new à la carte menu—just perfect for the festive period. Honestly, the ambiance here is just so inviting I’d pop by randomly to have a dessert anytime if I worked closer to the restaurant, but now you...

Durianmisu from the Goodwood Park Hotel
Durians. This word always conjured up scary images (and smells) for me. Yes, I’m Singaporean, but nope, I DO NOT like durians. There, I’ve said it. Not very patriotic I know, but matters of taste transcend the boundaries of nations. Everything to do with the fruit doesn’t agree...

Gold Rush Yu Sheng from Jade
Apart from having to meet up with sordid relatives best forgotten and getting to veg out at home with naught to do but count your likely-to-be-pitiable New Year takings from abovementioned blood relations, Chinese New Year (or CNY for short) is only good for one other thing: Eating. Oh, and now...
