Casa Rustico – Unpretentious new Italian restaurant at Mohamed Sultan Road

Casa Rustico

Casa Rustico is Italian for “Rustic House”. We were half-expecting an ornate Italian country-side decor, perhaps with checked table cloths, when we visited this new Italian restaurant at Mohamed Sultan Road recently.

Warung M Nasir – Good Nasi Padang in the City

Warung M Nasir Nasi Padang

On the fringe of Orchard Road, Killiney Road is a narrow road which is colourful and busy. To a large extent, it is busy because of Singaporeans’ twin obsessions – mobile phones and food. The car park entrance to Singtel Shop Comcentre is at Killiney Road and many interesting restaurants and cafes are located in the shophouses along the road. The famous Killiney Kopitiam is at shophouse No. 67. Right next to it is Warung M Nasir, one of the best places in the city to enjoy a tantalising collection of authentic Padang-style dishes.
