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 ...

ChillaxBBQ’s Slow Roast Pork Belly

ChillaxBBQ's Slow Roast Pork Belly Dare we release this to the public. This is one of our signature dishes, one that is loved by all. It's been a secret, but so many have eaten it and asked for the recipe perhaps it is time to reveal. So here is ChillaxBBQ's Slow Roast Pork Belly. It's quite a simple recipe, but believe me, this is knockout, off-the-charts and will easily compete with the best fo the best in Singapore - even perhaps that one with a Michelin *. This is pork-a-licious. This is ...

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 ...

ChillaxBBQ does kid’s birthdays now…

ChillaxBBQ does kid's birthdays now... Now there's a first. We had a brief from the clients Iain and Clair, that their daughter, Ottie, was turning 4 and she loves Jellyfish. Now that is one brief and a half haha. It was supposed to be 15 kids and 10 adults but turned in to 20 or so kids and approximately the same number of adults. It's sort of how we like it. Baptism by fire. But we did it. We rocked (so we were told). So yes folks ChillaxBBQ does kid's birthdays now... Firstly to the crew; ...

If ChillaxBBQ did pizzas. Hold on, we do now…

If ChillaxBBQ did pizzas. Hold on, we do now... So my mate Ruthers and I are always looking to push the ChillaxBBQ model to the extreme. Recently we have been given the chance to take that up a notch with our first kid's birthday BBQ. She is 4 years old and likes jellyfish. Holy cow what to do? With the client, Claire, we agreed to try to do a seaside food diorama. A diorama that you can eat pretty much everything of. But also to keep the wee ones entertained how about we do a 'make your own ...
