Pool Grill @ Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel.

To find a quiet spot in the busy streets of Orchard Road may be a challenge. That is why, when I find one, I feel proud of myself.

Huang Ji @ Maxwell Food Centre.

From 1 modest hawker stall to 5, in addition to a factory located in Johor, Malaysia; from a banker to a young hawker to help her father man the branch at Maxwell Food Centre; these are the changes that have occurred from over a decade ago for Huang Ji Noodles Store.

RamenPlay.

I've heard a good mix of reviews of RamenPlay prior to my first visit last month, that I was properly prepared to be disappointed.

It needs no introduction, and I admit that I'm likely to be one of the last few to patronize this Papa Palheta's establishment. Old, run-down, hardware shop facade, with an air-conditioned, limited seating interior, … Continue reading Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee Bar.

Shang Palace @ Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa.

I can still remember vividly, my initial moments at Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa. Having spent the entire morning only with a couple of pastries and tea, I was dying to have a proper meal. I passed the stairway, with a stand of sorts, and staring at me was a huge RM6.88++ (SGD2.80++), followed … Continue reading Shang Palace @ Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa.

Sandy beach, gentle waves, unobstructed view of the South China Sea, famed Kota Kinabalu sunset; the Grade A equation to an unblemished dining venture. Upon discovery, I knew I had to schedule a dinner here, by hook or by crook. I wasted no time, dialed '0' to reach the Operator and reserved my seats at … Continue reading Coco-Joe’s Bar & Grill @ Shangri-La’s Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa.
