A Lovely Shelter In The Woods

Shelter in the Woods is my go-to restaurant when the carnivore in me calls. Helmed by Japanese Chef Masashi Horiuchi, with decades-long experience in Michelin restaurants across Europe under his belt , it serves up an excellent repertoire of rotisserie and charcuterie offerings that feature very delicate balance of taste, robust yet not overwhelming. The meat are the stars: the grain-fed black Angus Roasted Ribeye Steak and the Rotisserie Rack of Lamb of Australian four-rib lamb rack are must-orders. … More A Lovely Shelter In The Woods

Not sated by our earlier meal, we desperately needed a carb session to end the nite; and ended nearby at Menya Takeichi, a branch of Tokyo’s No.1 chicken ramen chain. It’s one of the new concept eateries of Eat At Seven at Suntec Sky Garden. There is a variety of ramen on offer, and all features broth that is rich and creamy in collagen. A lovely spot for a quick slurpy meal or supper. … More Tokyo’s No. 1 Chicken Ramen

Balestier Heritage Trail, Noodles & Tau Sar Piah

We were intrigued that Balestier Road was designated a Heritage Trail by the National Heritage Board. The road, named after Joseph Balestier the first American Consul to Singapore in the 1830s, is faned for several well-known chicken rice and Bak Kut Teh eateries. On this occasion, we revisited the ever popular Noi’s Bak Chor Mee (肉脞面) noodle stall and the Loong Fatt Tau Sar Piah (龍發豆沙饼) pastry shop for a piece of edible history. … More Balestier Heritage Trail, Noodles & Tau Sar Piah
