Gerarda’s Place, Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines

Gerarda's Place, Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines Our second time at this absolute cracker of a restaurant. It happened by chance today though as we were actually scheduled to go to Golden Cowrie, another of my favourites, but found that sadly this has now closed down and is now only located in Boracay. Anyways, their loss is our gain, as we have a superb meal at Gerarda's Place, Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines. As in, SUPERB! Our server was a chap called Jade, yep not too far from Jude ...

Iza, Izakaya Bar & Restaurant, Siglap

Iza, Izakaya Bar & Restaurant, Siglap You may have seen before that we frequent Mikawa Restaurant quite a lot in Siglap. Well hey presto, Maurice, Mary and son (POD) have now opened a new joint literally across the road. This is known as Iza, Izakaya Bar & Restaurant, Siglap. It is a cracker. A must try in my reckoning. It was packed. Only complaint would be that service is a tad slow, but that is likely teething pains of a brand new restaurant. New choices on the menu now for us. Some ...

PhillaxBeBeQ

PhillaxBeBeQ So wifey and BeBe have forayed today in to the world of catering, whilst leveraging the ChillaxBBQ brand. So a party of Filipinos, with food cooked by Mary and BeBe, hence the title today of PhillaxBeBeQ. I only did two dishes, my Thai fish and some whitebait deep fried in seasoned bread crumbs. The rest was done by wifey and BeBe, and a good looking turn out it was too. Apparently all the food disappeared, so proud to have the girls on the brand today. Well done.Looked amazing, ...

Pho 24, Ho Chi Minh Vietnam

Pho 24, Ho Chi Minh Vietnam You may or may not know, but I entered a competition with Singtel recently, and I ended up winning. Surprise, surprise. I struggled to remember what I had entered actually, but could not thank them enough. What did I win? Well only a three day, two night trip to Ho Chi Minh, and cooking class at Luke Nguyen's Cooking School, Grain, for Mary and I. He is one of my favourite Chefs, and I have most of his books already, so I was massively excited. We left the older ...

Baba Chew’s, @ Hotel Indigo, Katong

Baba Chew's, @ Hotel Indigo, Katong I have to say I am a little surprised at the reviews on FaceBook about this place. Today our lunch at Baba Chew's, @ Hotel Indigo, Katong, was nothing short of fantastic. We loved every singe dish, and because of that doubled up on one due to us enjoying it so much. The only common theme I am seeing is that most people are going for brunch, we went al la carte. Service was fine, due to the staff being cheery and attentive. I can't complain, as others have. ...

Al Forno, Siglap

Al Forno, Siglap The Al Forno boys have struck again. We are so, so lucky that they have struck up in Siglap. Literally a 5 minute walk now to their new place on East Coast Road. Oh boy we are happy. They opened Monday, and today was the day for family Kennett to visit and sample their fare. I am so glad we went to Al Forno, Siglap. Wonderful staff, delicious food, an amazing deli, and pricing on the mark. Apparently the menu is still work on progress, as they settle down, but for a first go ...

Kontiki Restaurant, 11 Rhu Cross

Kontiki Restaurant, 11 Rhu Cross A beautiful day wandering around, and about Gardens by the Bay and the like, transposed in to a dinner at Kontiki Restaurant, 11 Rhu Cross. click to see the previous blog I wrote about this place. If only this had been open when we lived at Costa Rhu. But it was not. So now, it is the occasional visitation, but a visit that is with welcome arms. This place is somewhere you HAVE to visit. The food is exceptional. Not cheap, but not too many $$$. But you get ...

Starker Bistro, Katong Square

Starker Bistro, Katong Square Let's try something new for lunch we thought. So off we go to Katong on the hunt, and we find Starker Bistro, Katong Square. This is a new-ish place in Katong Square, near the Holiday Inn. Let's give it a crack we thought. But how was this first time experience in this new joint, well read on folks. It was actually pretty damned good. $150 for the 4 of us, so not too bad on the coin. Staff were great, food was quick, and the home-craft beer was nice. Can't ask ...
