Al Forno @ Siglap – our return

Al Forno @ Siglap - our return I'll be honest with the boys from Al Forno, as I was in a blog before about their brunch. We have been a little disappointed with our local Al Forno in Siglap. Not enough on the menu. Very much plank only options. Lots never available when ordered. It was OK, that was about it, OK. Sadly we voted with our feet and mouths and started frequenting the many other East Coast locations for lunch and dinner. But. And let me say this is a BIG BUT, Al Forno @ Siglap - our ...

Tsuta Japanese Soba Noodles @ Jewel

Tsuta Japanese Soba Noodles @ Jewel I tell you what Jewel is becoming a bit of food and shopping Mecca for us. It's much closer than the other large shopping areas, it's cooler, it's newer, it has massive variety, and places for the kids to go crazy and play. Yeah, we are sort of sold on it. This day I had to go back to get my EarPods fixed (for the SECOND time Apple). But an excuse to go back for lunch with Wifey and get that fixed. We thought we'd try something new and holy shit I am so glad ...

New Sunday Brunch Menu + our mate Chef Stefan @ Bar-Roque Grill

New Sunday Brunch Menu + our mate Chef Stefan @ Bar-Roque Grill Today, Sunday 6/10, I am off to the UK for a week for the new job. So we decided as a gang to visit a couple of our all-time favourite restaurants this weekend before I go. Yesterday we hit the specials board of Etna, going all Italian. Today we smash the French slopes with the New Sunday Brunch Menu + our mate Chef Stefan @ Bar-Roque Grill. We ordered so much food, even Chef Stefan himself said; "Having a light lunch today then ...

Tortuga Tapas Bar & Bistro @ Katong

Tortuga Tapas Bar & Bistro @ Katong We truly are so verfy lucky living in Siglap and being foodies as a family. We always have new stuff to try. Always.

With nothing planned for dinner last night, it was time to try out Tortuga Tapas Bar & Bistro @ Katong. And believe me, folks, it did not disappo...

My mate Chef Greg, now @ Puri Puri Restaurant + Grade A4 Japanese Wagyu

My mate Chef Greg, now @ Puri Puri Restaurant + Grade A4 Japanese Wagyu So a little out of the blue, I get a message from my great Chef mate Greg. Remember him from Siglap Khun Mookata days. He then went to CBP for Mikawa #2, the one we usually frequent in Siglap too. And now he has set up on his own. He had some 'spare' Wagyu, just 3-4Kg slabs of Japanese Grade A4. "Did I want some?" said Greg. "I am on my way over now!" said I. This is how My mate Chef Greg, now @ Puri Puri Restaurant + ...

The Botanic @ Raffles City

The Botanic @ Raffles City We finished our little trip to see Amy's Gold Winning Entry for the "Draw My Stamp" competition at the National Library. As we were nearing dinner, but not quite I thought we could wander and have a drink and sit somewhere 1st. So I took us off to Loof, the rooftop bar over from Raffles. A nice little family sit and chat and look at the photos of dinosaurs. Across the road is Chijmes and Raffles City and I was thinking perhaps Carnivores for dinner, post watching the ...

Sandwich Saigon Cafe @ Katong

Sandwich Saigon Cafe @ Katong I wrote about this place years ago. Do you remember? All about how incredible the owner is, and her making her own baguettes every day and her own soy and fish sauces. Clearly it has been years and it was time to re-visit. Wifey and I had the chance to have lunch too as I was working from home this day after the trip to Melbourne for work. Stars aligned and so did the food stars at Sandwich Saigon Cafe @ Katong. Everyone raves about Long Phung down Joo Chiat, as ...

Wolaa @ East Coast Road, #workisover-rated dinner with family

Wolaa @ East Coast Road, #workisover-rated dinner with family Yeah, baby another exciting little find. Our good mates the Breens have been here and really liked it. Every time we go past on the bus we see it and think; "Oh yeah we must pop in there one day..." And today was the day. After much badgering from #1 to go we did. He had had his extra Chinese lessons, and we had just been to see The Lion King (pretty good actually). So in need of a feed, we walked up to Wolaa @ East Coast Road, ...
