Sinpopo @ Joo Chiat Road, Katong, lunch with Wifey #workisover-rated

Sinpopo @ Joo Chiat Road, Katong, lunch with Wifey #workisover-rated I am loving my 'break' from work. Thank you, Telstra. #workisover-rated. So with some time on my hands as I search for new employment, I am taking the kids to school and having lunch with wifey pretty much every day now. And it is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. But, of course, it must end eventually - wish me luck for that. So today I found a new gem on East Coast. One I have walked past many a time but for some reason ...

Tippling Club with Archer – OMG!!!

Tippling Club with Archer - OMG!!! So I did a work 'favour' for my bud Archer and in return, he and his company decided to recognise me with literally a 'free lunch'. I cannot thank him enough for this as he went way, way, way to the very top and took me for my first time to Tippling Club. He organised an off-piste menu with wine pairing. This was a 'fuck-me I am in heaven' food experience. This is Tippling Club with Archer - OMG!!! If you ever plan to go here you need some coin, but every ...

2 amazing new hawker finds…

2 amazing new hawker finds... I love gardening leave. It is giving me time during the day to be with #1 the last couple of days. What have we been doing? Food exploring together. Yesterday I had an interview so was out West and on the way drove past Timbre+. Remember me mentioned our mate @DaveLim @Empress leaving Siglap Hawker? Well, his son has opened at Timbre+, so I dragged Ollie over to meet me for lunch after the interview. So Timbre+ is number one of 2 amazing new hawker finds... Tim...

Tono Cevicheria @ Dua Galleria with Wifey

Tono Cevicheria @ Duo Galleria with Wifey I had taken two additional days off after Vesak Day this year giving me a whopping 5 days off in a row. Now that is cool. I was able to spend time with the kids and wifey, showering Jude, getting him ready for bed, doing science with him before bed, and having lunch-times off with the wifey. Now you probably saw we went to Tonito’s again at Jewel so Amy and Ollie could experience it. We sort of indirectly met the Chef and Owner, Daniel Chavez, and ...

Meat Smith by Dave Pynt @ Makansutra Gluttons Bay

Meat Smith by Dave Pynt @ Makansutra Gluttons Bay What a pairing. Amaze-balls just reading this title. The Singaporean legend leading the preservation of Singapore's StreetFood, Mr KF Seetoh, paired with Michelin Star Chef Dave Pynt. BUT paired in a hawker at Makansutra Gluttons Bay down at Esplanade. Can it be? You bet your arse it can be. Meat Smith by Dave Pynt @ Makansutra Gluttons Bay is that concept which is one of 12 stalls. Chef Pynt has even built a Gaucho Grill in there. This is not ...

Chaoniu Hot Pot @ Katong

Chaoniu Hot Pot @ Katong It has happened again. Something new comes to East Coast to allow us to have another culinary adventure. And boy oh boy is this a cracker. Ollie spotted the 'logo' and we were then hooked, we had to go and reunite my tattoo with his long lost relatives. My little Wagyu Cow felt very at home despite mingling with a load of hacked up relatives that is. Are you getting the picture? Chaoniu Hot Pot @ Katong is a MEAT lover paradise. Yes, you veggies stop reading now. One ...

Jewel & Tonito’s for round #2

Jewel & Tonito's for round #2 Do you remember my previous blog of our trip here when Jimboy & Jhea were with us? Well, this time it is with the rest of the gang who have not been here with us yet. So for Mary and me, this is Jewel & Tonito's for round #2, but for Ollie, Amy and Jude it is round #1. We had to go back to Tonito's for them as this place is now becoming one of our favourite family restaurants, and it is literally just down the road for us. It just happens to be in an ...

English House by Marco Pierre White – early Mother’s Day lunch

English House by Marco Pierre White - early Mother's Day lunch Mother's Day weekend is upon us for Asia, but we also have a kids 5th Birthday Party on Sunday itself. What to do? I know let's do a surprise lunch the day before. But let's make it somewhere new. A few friends of mine at work have been chatting about this new place, one of them even met the proprietor when he was over checking progress. So it being a special occasion and all, and me being the foodie wanker I am, we just had to go ...
