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 ...

Kota 88 @ Siglap

Kota 88 @ Siglap Why have we never been to Kota 88 @ Siglap? It's been here a good few months now. Maybe it's because it sits next to what was Blooies that was not a favourite of ours. What was Blooies is now a fish restaurant so perhaps that is another reason? But tonight we went and now we all regret not having gone before. This place absolutely cracking, as in seriously good food and atmosphere. Believe me, guys this place gets mobbed. It was rammed last night. Huge family tables, as we did ...

Jewel @ Changi Airport, and lunch @ Tonito’s

Jewel @ Changi Airport, and lunch @ Tonito's When Singapore build stuff they truly do build it well. I'll drag out a photo now that I took when I visited the JV on behalf of Telstra, something like 4 years ago before construction had started. The JV is Changi Airport Group and Capitaland. And man oh man have they built something to impress from those original model ideas. Just watch to see how concept to reality has happened. What a transformation. Whilst there I espy a new logo restaurant. ...

Lunch @ The Bellevue Resort, Panglao Island, The Philippines

Lunch @ The Bellevue Resort, Panglao Island, The Philippines Today was the day that Amy and I get to take wifey to have Lunch @ The Bellevue Resort, Panglao Island, The Philippines. I think this could be my absolute favourite resort hotel on Panglao. It's not closed off like The BBC, it does not have the HUGE scale of Hennan, and it is way cheaper than Amorita. And it is just a quality place. The staff are super friendly, the beach is exclusive, the views are stunning and for this blog, the ...

Saffron @ Amorita Resort, Panglao, The Philippines

Saffron @ Amorita Resort, Panglao, The Philippines The very first hotel I stayed in The Philippines. Many years back now, and what a HUGE change Saffron @ Amorita Resort, Panglao, The Philippines has had over the years. We go back every time we visit. The last time was for Mary's 40th with The Rutherford's. But with Mary's brother working there too, we have been down on the beach and said hi when staying at Hennan Resort too. Well, they are beach neighbours after all. It's a stunning place. ...
