Banana Leaf Apolo Race Course Road – Curry Fish Head Lunch


Banana Leaf Apolo fish head curry is a dish that we have not tried in a while. While there are places to go for curry fish head these days, our memories about this famous Indian restaurant in Little India made us decide to revisit them and try their signature dish at their Race Course Road main restaurant.

Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe @ Robertson Quay


Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe @ Robertson Quay is a new cafe that opened along the Singapore River. This is their second outlet in Singapore. Their first one is at Loewen Road in the Dempsey dining area. Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe is run by a Melbourne expat, mother of 5-year old twins. Her food photography skills are also very good. The pictures on her website / blog are amazing and played a role in enticing us to go have brunch at Carrotsticks and Cravings Cafe @ Robertson Quay recently.

The English House by Marco Pierre White


The opening of the English House by Marco Pierre White in Mohamed Sultan Road Singapore was an eagerly awaited event. There are many notable facts about the place. The chef was the first Briton to be recognised with a three star Michelin award at the age of 33. He appeared in one of the last rounds of the Masterchef Singapore competition. Former nightspot Madam Wong’s used to occupy one of the houses. We remember Madam Wong’s as one of the first places to open in the area, a pioneer in the gentrification of the Mohamed Sultan area. It was therefore with some anticipation when we finally went to The English House for lunch recently.

Szechuan Kitchen – good food at a price

Membership has its privileges. In the case of dining benefits card, it would seem that the privileges are subsidised by members who paid for the cards but do not make full use of their membership and by ordinary patrons who pay full price for their meals. Szechuan Court is one of those restaurants where holders of The Far Card get good discounts. We do not hold the Far Card so we decide to eat at Szechuan Kitchen, which usually has a more affordable menu compared to the menu of Szechuan Court.

Tok Tok Indonesian Soup House @ Paya Lebar Square

Tok Tok Indonesian

Tok Tok Indonesian Soup House says it “is the first Indonesian warong in Singapore that serves you a variety of authentic Indonesian soups, street style” and wants their customers to have that “local Indonesian experience”. We are not sure about the first warong in Singapore part but when we visited Tok Tok at Paya Lebar Square, we certainly did have the little Indonesian street side restaurant experience.
