Amiral Atelier Paragon – a breathe of fresh air in a crowded city

The Paragon at Orchard Road hosts some of the major names in the Singapore F&B business, names like Ding Tai Fung, Crystal Jade and Imperial Treasures, PS Cafe etc. We were looking for something to eat but were hoping to try something less well-known. That was when we came across Amiral Atelier Paragon. It looked like it could be a bakery, a cake shop or a cafe. On closer examination, it turned out to be a mix of all three, but mainly a cake shop.

Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles at Esplanade

Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles at Esplanade

One of the special things about Singapore is the hawker food experience in old coffee shops and food centres. These are places that are usually warm and congested, with hardly any ambience or service worth talking about, but with good food at affordable prices. However, there is a trend of hawkers opening up standalone eateries in posh locations. Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles at Esplanade is the latest hawker stall to move upscale. From Pek Kio Market in Little India to the Esplanade Mall by Marina Bay is a big leap. Does the good old prawn noodles taste the same in a modish air-conditioned environment?Read More »Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles at Esplanade

Just point and eat at Kurama Robatayaki restaurant @ Millenia Walk

Japanese restaurant Kurama Robatayaki at Millenia Walk has a split personality. The front part of the place looks like a standup bar in a rough neighbourhood. Wire fencing and empty bottles are used to make up the shop front. The counters are propped up by empty beer crates. But be brave and venture deeper and the beautiful side of Kurama Robatayaki reveals itself.

Beach Road Kitchen – all day dining at JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach

Beach Road Kitchen Singapore

Beach Road Kitchen is the new all day dining restaurant of JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach. The not so old South Beach Hotel has a new operator and has been re-branded as JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach. One of the things the new hotel operator has done is to relocate the hotel’s all day dining restaurant, formerly known as ADHD, to a larger space and give it a new name – Beach Road Kitchen. The move is probably a practical and sensible one from the business perspective. However, we found the new Beach Road Kitchen nice but rather unexciting.Read More »Beach Road Kitchen – all day dining at JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach

Bird Bird at Frankel Avenue (Closed)

Bird Bird at Frankel Avenue

Bird Bird at Frankel Avenue is a restaurant by Chef Bjorn Shen of the fashionable Artichoke. He opened Bird Bird House of Thai Chicken in Ann Siang Road back in 2015. Bird Bird House had mixed reviews but its fried chicken was popular. Bird Bird’s move to Frankel is not just moving to a new location but moving into a new concept – one which concentrates on fried chicken. Bird Bird at Frankel Avenue is a simple American-style fried chicken restaurant.

Machida Shoten ramen restaurant at Japan Food Town Singapore

Originating from the Kanagawa Prefecture of Japan Machida Shoten is the ramen specialist restaurant at Japan Food Town. Given the high concentration of ramen shops in Singapore, many of which also originate from different parts of Japan, the question in our mind was how would Machida-Shoten Ramen compare with the competition. There was only one way to find out.
