Thai Affair, @ Central near Clarke Quay

No I don't mean I am going to start writing an article about me meeting some hot chick from Bangkok at Clarke Quay. Thai Affair is in fact one of the nicest and most authentic little Thai places I have found on my travels in Singapore. And this was completely by chances when we went to our friend's daughter's birthday party at a cooking/cake shop (great fun - see Facebook), and whilst she was busy I kept taking Jude for little walks to keep him entertained. Every time I had to walk past ...

Cambodia, of markets and insects

Cambodia, of markets and insects Every year I descend on Phnom Penh in Cambodia to build houses for the less fortunate villagers out in the wilds, usually that is about 3-4 hours out from the city. Please check out the charity we go every year to help; http://www.tabithasingapore.com. Because of these amazing experiences and trips there I truly have fallen in love with Cambodia, the extremely sad history, the incredibly proud people, the beautiful country-side, and of course the incredible ...

Bistecca Restaurant, Mohammed Sultan Road

A top end dining experience in Singapore it has to be said - both the price and the food experience that is. Was it worth it? Oh yes, EVERY single cent. This is very much an East goes West experience - a Tuscan meat Bistro, called Bistecca on Mohammed Sultan Road, Singapore.Oh my goodness. You'll need to book as this place just gets monster full. I had been here before with work, and knowing Mary I knew she'd love this place too - plus for yours truly it was another great reason to go back. ...

Sakae Japanese Restaurant – Parkway Parade

We happened to be in Parkway today buying some new bed sheets, getting some filters and weed for the fish, buying a few other bits and pieces. It happened to be lunch so we all decided lets try teppanyaki at Sakae. We have not been there for an absolute age, so thought a good time to go, and boy oh boy was I so please we did choose here. Lucky enough to be sampling the brand new menu too. Up there on price it has to be said at $275 for 4 of us - but when you see what we ate perhaps you can ...

Kurotoman Ramen City Square Johor Bahru – Oh yes indeed

Tom Cruise eat your heart out - maybe this sounds a tad confusing, but I am linking one of our "Great Escapes" sagas this time to my food blog. Why and Why reference Mr Cruise... A good question indeed. Let me explain. One of Tom's highest grossing earnings has likely been the four Mission Impossible films. Well Cruisy old chap, you have only done four, yes FOUR Mission Impossibles - Mary, Jude and I are now on our TWELFTH or so, to satisfy our friends here in Singapore regards certain ...

Cafe Rouge, Bath, UK

I have not been to a Cafe Rouge for, well, ever. One of my lovely wife Nina's favourites, we'd pretty much be in the one in Putney most weekends for some snack, a bottle of vino and a chat. Ollie sat in his buggy, or in the first few visits was not even with us in the first place. We loved Cafe Rouge, we really did. So then when I happened to be in Bath with my family and we were looking for something to eat for dinner and walked passed guess what, yep a Cafe Rouge - I just had to go in ...

Cafe Des Amis, Canterbury, Kent, England – a blast from the past

I have not been to this restaurant for over 15 years, minimum. We happened to be in UK visiting for my brother's wedding, hired a car, came to Canterbury in Kent and parked opposite. In my head was planted the seed - lunch must be had at Cafe Des Amis, the Mexican at The Westgate Towers. I used to come here with Mum when the Summer Season had finished at Bembom Brother's and we had finished selling donuts - the staff-do in effect. This was a big treat then. It became a favourite. I used to ...

Empress Place @ LTN Siglap

Empress Place @ LTN Siglap Come on Belinda belt it out love!!! "Oooh heaven is a place on earth..." Nice song Belinda - but the relevance is what. It is our hawker in Siglap - that is just about as close as heaven on earth can get. Food is incredible, so are the people - now our family friends, so are our neighbours. Drink flows fast and of course it is exceptional value. I cannot get enough. Now I know I have shared Death Row Cuisine with you before from Mr David Lim, well I am going to ...
