Late lunch with Simon & Dani – Thank you both SO very much

I am rubbish you know. Seriously not enough photos of our lovely late lunch today - should have had more group shots and the like, and clearly more of the food. But it sort of arrived and we ate it - ha ha! Seriously good fun, as we all helped try to clear the Xmas & Boxing Day fridge. In attendance; Simon, Dani and boys x3, Granny Fae up from Australia, Dave & Jacqui and kids x2, Mary and I and kids x3 and remotely on Skype Craig & Katherine and kids x2. Lovely!!! A major ...

DB Bistro Moderne

DB Bistro Moderne Hmmm well I thought this man, this chef, a tad arrogant - well he is French after all, but... I have to say this restaurant is bloody good. Food it top drawer. Save your money though as it isn't cheap. I welcome you to DB Bistro Moderne @ Marina Bay Sands. Off I went to take Amy to Hi5 one day, and then after Mary, Ollie and Jude joined us to go to lunch. Where to go? We are in Marina Bay Sands, in the theatre - what's that opposite a pizza joint, excellent. Ahhhh ...

Din Tai Fung

Din Tai Fung Seriously for price, for taste, for ease, for the casual and family atmosphere you really cannot beat Din Tai Fung. I think this is now voted as the best Chinese restaurant chain in Singapore (actually it is Taiwanese - but don't tell any one!!!). We have been in so many different branches of this place all over the island of Singapore, and it always exceptional quality and exceptional taste. It is just so so good as a restaurant. We started off going here when Nina and I ...

A quick Segway of food in Cambodia

Quite amazing what you see on the menus in very nice establishments in Cambodia. One our last night we ate deep fried - water boatmen, cockroaches, crickets etc. But on a trip to Friends Restaurant it got a tad freaky actually, both inside and out. So 1st up let's get the drinks a flowing please bartender. This is a belter - pineapple margarita with chill - oh yes, it is just sublime, incredible in fact. I have made this one at home too. What to eat, hmmm what to eat. I like the ...

Back to our friends at My Little Spanish Place – eating again with Chef Edward

Ollie had a choice today for his birthday celebration lunch. My word did he choose well and wisely for his age. Back we went to My Little Spanish Place - our second time, but a 1st for Miz who happened to be visiting. I am so glad he chose to go here. Remember my previous blog re this place - well if you do you can absolutely see why we were all SOOOOOOO happy to be going back. And why would that be do you think??? Because Edward's food is simply amazing, from cured hams, ...

Tioman Island, Malaysia – ‘Between Heaven and Earth’ – that includes the food…

Focus on the food. Focus on the food. Very difficult when I have just come back from paradise. Clearly this has an impact on the food experience too. Check out the photo header of the hotel resort we stayed in - goodness me!!! Toes in sand, warm sea breezes, no humidity, cocktails in hand, kids happy, mellow tunes wafting - come on could have been worst meal ever and I'd probably rave about it. But I can honestly say the food here in Malaysia was incredible and I wanted to share some ...

A few ideas from BBQ @ Simon & Dani’s

What a lovely BBQ we had this week at Simon and Dani's - thanks so very much my darlins. Now you can look at the other blog for more on that - this as you know is food food food. So here are some snaps of the bloody amazing food on offer at the party - absolutely spanking in fact! A quick boil of some asparagus, leaving it a little on the crunchy side. Wrap two sprigs with some streaky bacon, repeat and skewer as above. Drizzle a little oil, salt and pepper and bang em on the ...

Inasal, Lucky Plaza

If you want to get your Filipino taste buds going great guns, get to Orchard Road, 4th Floor of Lucky Plaza and the unassuming Inasal. It is a replacement for another very frequent visiting place of ours that used to be on the same site - GP Restaurant. So sad we were to lose that. BUT glad we are to gain Inasal. It's wonderful. One down-side - no beer license, hey ho you can't have everything. I won't share pics of everything we ate but I will share some highlights, in fact only two ...
