Brunch at Godmama Funan – Modern Peranakan Restaurant

Godmama Funan Peranakan Restaurant was one of the restaurants that looked interesting to us when the new Funan Mall opened earlier this month. According to the website, the owner started the restaurant to celebrate and to preserve the legacy and recipes of her Godma and Mother. The name of the restaurant was inspired by their names – “Godma” and “Mama”. We had brunch at Godmama Funan recently.

W39 Bistro & Bakery – friendly neighbourhood restaurant in the West of Singapore

W39 Bistro & Bakery is a cute little restaurant in West Coast, Singapore. Hidden away from view inside a residential estate near Clementi Stadium, it is the kind of small neighbourhood restaurant that one feels comfortable in very quickly. Our pictures don’t do justice to it. This drawing of W39 Bistro displayed on a shelf within the restaurant is better at capturing its character. Notice Oscar the Corgi right in front.

Wildseed Café Alkaff Mansion – picturesque cafe on a hill

Alkaff Mansion is a stately colonial bungalow located on a hill at Telok Blangah Green. Built in 1918 by a member of the prominent Alkaff family as a weekend house, it has seen its days as a venue for high society parties and wedding venue as well as being home to the headquarters of the World Buddhist Society and a Dutch-Indonesian restaurant specialising in rijstaffel. Today the ground floor of the two-storey Tudor-styled bungalow houses the Wildseed Cafe by day and the TXA Bar by night. Wildseed Café Alkaff Mansion is an offshoot of the original Wildseed that opened at The Summerhouse in Seletar in 2017.

Soufflé Duxton Hill Singapore, new French restaurant specialising in soufflé

Soufflé Duxton Hill is a new French restaurant that specialises in soufflés. With six savoury soufflés and eight types of sweet soufflés on the menu, anyone can satisfy his craving for the fluffy French baked egg dish here. Souffle is run by Delicae Hospitality Management Group (“DHM Group”) which used to operate the Sabio Tapas Bar from the same premises. We had brunch there recently and tried seven types of soufflé. I probably ate more souffle in one day than I did in the past ten years.
