Basque Kitchen by Aitor is a Singapore one-Michelin Star restaurant at Amoy Street. We were there for lunch recently and tried the $158++ Discovery Degustation Menu.
Parallel Coffee Roasters Cafe at Duxton Hill was where we ended up for coffee after our lunch at Beng Who Cooks along Neil Road. The cafe has a peaceful environment. The coffee was good and reasonably priced. The pastries however are unikely to win any prizes in a beauty contest.
Beng Who Cooks is a new restaurant at Neil Road. It is opened by Jason Chua and Hung Zhen Long who had dished out free meals from their former hawker stall in Hong Lim Complex. In recognition of their efforts, Straits Times call them the Ah Beng hawkers who became Covid-19 heroes. We thought that we should show support by stopping by to try some Beng cuisine.
Binomio Spanish Restaurant has a plain looking exterior. Being a restaurant on the ground floor of the drab Craig Road multi-storey carpark is not the most glamorous location. But Binomio won us over in the course of a lunch.
Itameshi, or “Italian food” in Japanese, has become very popular and Japanese-Italian fusion cuisine is said to be the up and coming culinary trend. Monte Risaia Japanese Italian Restaurant gives us an opportunity to find out what is all the fuss about.
