Stärker Signature, Tanjong Pagar Centre is the latest outlet of the Starker Group. They seem to be sprouting outlets all over Singapore. As of today they have three Starker Bistro outlets, two Starker Signature and one each of Starker Music and Starker Q. It seems that the “Bistro” series have more food choices with “German signature roasts as well as popular international dishes” while the Q series at the other end “is a multi-concept bar that serves a variety of cuisines with a local touch at wallet-friendly prices“. The “Signature” outlet at Starker Tanjong Pagar is therefore something in the upper middle segment. What is common through the range is the fresh and fruity beer that Starker is known for.
The .elia Singapore is a newcomer to the Keong Saik dining neighbourhood. It is located along Jiak Chuan Road, a side road that branches off Keong Saik Road. Its neighbours include famous Spanish tapas bar Esquina on one side and budget hotel, Hotel 81 on another side. What does its name “.elia” mean? The answer my friends, is written on the chalkboard in the restaurant.
PS Cafe Fullerton is the newest PS Cafe to open in Singapore. It is the seventh and the largest PS Cafe in Singapore. They have certainly come a long way since their early days when the cafe took up just a corner of the Project Shop. We always look forward to new PS Cafe openings not because of the food (as they tend to serve similar types of food), but because of their impressive interior designs. In terms of decor, we think that PS Cafe Fullerton takes the cake. We take you on a tour of the biggest and latest PS Cafe before we show you what we had for lunch .

We were spoilt for choice when we walked around The Paragon Mall looking for a place for brunch. In addition to the dozens of restaurants in the basement, there is a cluster of cafes at the old Promenade end of the Paragon mall. We ended up at O’Coffee Club Paragon which is sandwiched between Paul’s on the second level and 63 Celsius on the 4th. All three occupy the same spot on the planet, just vertically atop or below each other.
“Grand Jeté” is a high difficulty movement in ballet in which the dancer jumps up and does a split while airborne. It is also the name of a new cafe: Grand Jeté Cafe & Bar in Takashimaya Shopping Centre. It is a hidden place, not linked to the usual corridors that connect the shops within the complex. Tucked away at the back of level 2 near the taxi stand at the back of this Orchard Road mall, it is next to Ngee Ann City Office Tower B (the side near Wisma Atria).
