Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe @ Robertson Quay


Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe @ Robertson Quay is a new cafe that opened along the Singapore River. This is their second outlet in Singapore. Their first one is at Loewen Road in the Dempsey dining area. Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe is run by a Melbourne expat, mother of 5-year old twins. Her food photography skills are also very good. The pictures on her website / blog are amazing and played a role in enticing us to go have brunch at Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe @ Robertson Quay recently.

The English House by Marco Pierre White


The opening of the English House by Marco Pierre White in Mohamed Sultan Road Singapore was an eagerly awaited event. There are many notable facts about the place. The chef was the first Briton to be recognised with a three star Michelin award at the age of 33. He appeared in one of the last rounds of the Masterchef Singapore competition. Former nightspot Madam Wong’s used to occupy one of the houses. We remember Madam Wong’s as one of the first places to open in the area, a pioneer in the gentrification of the Mohamed Sultan area. It was therefore with some anticipation when we finally went to The English House for lunch recently.

CNY Popiah Feast ft. Kway Guan Huat Joo Chiat Popiah Skins


The best meal that we had (so far) this Chinese New Year period was at the popiah party at a friend’s place. The secret of a good homemade popiah? Lots of juicy ingredients prepared with passion, some special ingredients and Kway Guan Huat Joo Chiat popiah skins which our hosts insist on using year after year; even though they live on the other side of Singapore, in the West.

Szechuan Kitchen – good food at a price

Szechuan Kitchen

Membership has its privileges. In the case of dining benefits card, it would seem that the privileges are subsidised by members who paid for the cards but do not make full use of their membership and by ordinary patrons who pay full price for their meals. Szechuan Court is one of those restaurants where holders of The Far Card get good discounts. We do not hold the Far Card so we decide to eat at Szechuan Kitchen, which usually has a more affordable menu compared to the menu of Szechuan Court.

Lunch at Imperial Treasure Teochew Ion, Teochew restaurant at Orchard Road.


Imperial Treasure Teochew Ion Orchard is a Teochew restaurant at Orchard Road. It received one Michelin star in the 2018 Michelin Guide Singapore. It had been some time since our last visit to this Teochew restaurant, having been there when they first opened in December 2016. You can see more pictures of the restaurant in our post on our previous visit. We decided to go there for a simple Teochew lunch before the very busy CNY 2019 festive season kicked in.
