Marmalade is a classic slow-food experience. The experts say that making marmalade involves cooking the ingredients slowly over a very long period of time so as to draw out every last drop of flavour from the fruits. We had brunch recently at Marmalade Pantry ION Orchard. The food was good but it was certainly a slow dining experience.
Wimbly Lu is a cafe and chocolatier that has become well known for their chocolate truffles and waffles. Their popularity must be one of the reasons for the traffic woes in Jalan Riang off Upper Serangoon Road. Their new outlet, Wimbly Lu Tyrwhitt, is a cosy space in the hipster neighborhood of Jalan Besar-Lavender. Parking should be less of an issue at Tyrwhitt Road and, in any case, the location is more accessible by public transport
63CELSIUS Paragon is a new restaurant that opened recently on the 4th floor of the Paragon Shopping mall on Orchard Road. The first 63CELSIUS outlet is located at Asia Square Tower 2. We had brunch at 63CELSIUS Paragon recently.
The Dempsey Cookhouse & Bar by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten is the third restaurant to open at the Como Dempsey food and retail zone on Dempsey Hill. The Candlenut Peranakan and Ippoh tempura restaurants had been open for several months. The Dempsey Cookhouse opened quite recently and it looks like things are starting to look even more interesting at Dempsey Hill.
Buttergrill is a unique restaurant in Singapore that puts flavoured butter as their unique selling proposition. According to their website, “(n)othing compares to a good grilled meat or seafood that cooked to perfection using your choice of our handcrafted flavor butters. The grilled meat or seafood are infused with our butter goodness and packed with flavor.” Butter does not usually dictate our choice of restaurant. But in this case, motivated by a Chope promotional deal, we made an online booking and headed down to Tanjong Pagar for lunch at Buttergrill.
