Obama and Honey at Alchemist Beer Lab is not another piece of fake news nor a scandalous tabloid story.  Obama is the name of a special stout at Alchemist Beer Lab which also serves a pale ale with honey and ginger.

Shunjuu Izakaya at Robertson Quay

When the sun goes down, the restaurants and bars at Robertson Quay comes alive. In the daytime, the place is very peaceful and tranquil. Many of the restaurants do open for lunch but the mood in the day is very different. There is quite a variety of cuisines available.  We decided to have lunch at Shunjuu Izakaya located in Riverside View, one of the buildings at Robertson Quay. The higher levels of Riverside View are residential condominium units. The retail and dining action takes place on the lower levels. One word of caution if you are driving – the underground carpark has a sharp bend at the exit. Better to park elsewhere if you are driving anything wider than a Camry.

Italian restaurant and microbrewery PocoLoco Jurong, Snow CIty

Are they going loco down at PocoLoco Jurong? Opening an Italian restaurant and microbrewery in Snow City in Jurong East is a bold move. This is an area where (we would assume) the main human traffic exists in the form of school children arriving by the bus loads on excursions to visit the Science Centre or the Snow City itself. This is PocoLoco’s second restaurant. Their first outlet is in Ang Mo Kio. We always welcome more dining options in the West of Singapore, and so we made it a point to check out the newly opened PocoLoco Jurong.

Armoury Gastrobar Singapore – happy hour destination at South Beach

Armoury Gastrobar South Beach - 1

It was a dark and stormy night.  We decided to adjourn for happy hour drinks at Armoury Gastrobar Singapore which is located in a building that used to be an armoury in the former Beach Road Army Camp. If our memory is correct, the old HQ 2 PDF reservist unit used to occupy this place.   The armoury is a stand-alone building but is part of the South Beach conservation and redevelopment project that involved a makeover of the whole army camp and the construction of a new hotel, commercial outlets and condominiums.  Continue reading →
