Baby Mustard sits idyllically by Tra Que’s market gardens in a backstreet off the road to An Bang Beach. It rates very highly on peer review sites and seems to have struck upon a menu and cooking style that brings Vietnamese food closer to Western palates. Above-average and mid-priced but look out for the mozzies!...

Food Review: Uya Singapore at Wheelock Place, Orchard | New Japanese Unagi Concept to rival Man Man

Food Review: Uya Singapore at Wheelock Place, Orchard | New Japanese Unagi Concept to rival Man Man

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place Unagi is still a fairly neglected Japanese dining concept even after the huge success of Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant, hence when we heard that a brand new unagi concept has opened at Wheelock Place in Orchard, it aroused our interests greatly. Meet the few days old Uya Singapore, a live unagi dining concept similar to Man Man, but think of it as a more ‘atas’ version. We learnt from their staff that Uya is in fact a local collaboration with an experienced unagi distributor from Nagoya, Japan. My first impression of the dining space is the zen-ness. It does feel like I am in Japan for a few moments before reality strikes. Decked in mainly wood furnishings, there are pockets of private dining space at the sides of the restaurant where there is a squarish communal table at the middle with a tree to resemble a garden-like ambience. The Food The main highlight of Uya is its live unagi, which means you are in for a fresh treat. The source of supply for the unagi is seasonal, where we had unagi from Taiwan during our visit. There is a glass panel at the front of the restaurant [...]

Food Review: Teppan by Chef Yonemura at Resorts World Sentosa | Teppanyaki meets Kaiseki by Japan’s One Michelin Star Chef Yonemura

Food Review: Teppan by Chef Yonemura at Resorts World Sentosa | Teppanyaki meets Kaiseki by Japan’s One Michelin Star Chef Yonemura

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place There are no lack of Michelin starred dining concepts at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) with the latest being Teppan by Chef Yonemura, the first overseas outpost by Chef Yonemura. The few weeks old Japanese restaurant is a concept by Chef Yonemura, who is behind the One Michelin-starred Restaurant Yonemura Kyoto as well as another restaurant in Tokyo. The restaurant at RWS is a very intimate space, which comprises three dining rooms and able to accommodate 21 guests in total. I like the fact that all the seats are at the counter, as I enjoy watching the action behind the grill. The Food There is only two set dinner menu at the moment with no lunch service. Choose from the 5-course (S$168++ per person) or 8-course (S$198++ per person) menu. Although the restaurant sounds like a pure teppanyaki concept, it is in fact a combination of Japanese kaiseki and teppanyaki as I found out along the way through the dishes. Chef Yonemura is widely recognised for his French-Japanese cuisine, so I was really excited to see how the meal would unfold. I was first served Sencha tea from Fuji Marumo, an exclusive sencha tea farm and distributor near Mt [...]

Food Review: Kra Pow Thai Street Food at Far East Plaza | A Taste of Thailand at this Hidden Gem in Orchard!

Food Review: Kra Pow Thai Street Food at Far East Plaza | A Taste of Thailand at this Hidden Gem in Orchard!

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place Far East Plaza is a sleepy mall the past few years and we almost missed out on a good restaurant just because we have already crossed out the mall. Kra Pow Thai Street Food located at level 3 of the mall near Orchard Road is a hidden gem. The casual eatery, where “Kra Pow” means holy basil in Thai, is spacious and offers affordable Thai food. There are more than 20 dishes in its extensive menu where you make your order directly at the counter, which explains why there is no service charge and GST. The restaurant was considerably packed during our weekend visit, though the kitchen was fairly efficient and we didn’t wait too long before our food arrived. The Food The menu is so extensive that I was so tempted to try so many dishes, and my note to self is to come with a bigger group next time. I spotted the usual favourites such as tom yum soup, grilled pork collar, mango salad and sea bass on the menu but didn’t manage to try all of these dishes this time. Instead, we started with the Thai Wings (S$6.90) as we were craving for something fried [...]

Food Review: Maru Dine & Bar at Icon Village | Japanese Fusion Restaurant in Tanjong Pagar

Food Review: Maru Dine & Bar at Icon Village | Japanese Fusion Restaurant in Tanjong Pagar

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place As much as Tanjong Pagar is changing with the new Tanjong Pagar Centre, Icon Village is one of the very first mixed development in this area with a concentrated dining options. Opened about three months ago in Icon Village is Maru Dine & Bar, a contemporary fusion restaurant which combines the elements of Vietnamese, Japanese and American cuisine into its dining concept. My first impression of the dining space is the long counter bar and high ceiling, which create a spacious feel. The steel telegraph poles with loudspeakers are reflective of the streets on the Old Quarters district in Hanoi, which is also part of the logo of the restaurant. The dining ambience is casual and relaxed, with a semi-private dining area towards one end of the restaurant. The Food To cater to the CBD crowd, there is a separate lunch menu where the dishes are priced more competitively than dinner. From the lunch menu, I enjoyed both the Sashimi Hiyashi Somen (S$32) and Mentaiko Cod Fish (S$22). If you love fresh sashimi, the Sashimi Hiyashi Somen will not disappoint with a fresh mix of salmon and even uni sashimi. Somen is quite light for me, so this [...]

Snippets: The 10 things you must-do and must-eat at Zurich, Switzerland

Snippets: The 10 things you must-do and must-eat at Zurich, Switzerland

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

Zurich – The hub of picturesque Switzerland, often mistaken as the capital of the country, Zurich holds a special place in my heart since my undergraduate exchange days years ago. It may not have most famous landmarks like Eiffel Tower and Big Ben, but the capital of chocolates and global wealth management hub has much more to offer in terms of food, nature and scenery. Here are the top ten spots we recommend if you are looking for a diverse experience in Zurich! ******* 1) Take in the view of Zurich from Lindenhof The best views are usually free and that applies to Lindenhof, situated on the Lindenhof hill right beside Limmat River. This spot offers a good panoramic view of the old town and Grossmünster Cathedral. Grab a coffee and some snacks and sit by the edges, it feels like life’s complete.  ******* 2) Enjoy the pastries at the Schober Peclard Café Located in the heart of Zurich old town is  Schober Peclard cafe, one of the oldest and most traditional in Zurich. The interior spans across three storeys, but do expect a queue especially on weekends as it is very popular amongst locals and tourists. The ambience exudes that [...]

Food Review: Narikura Tonkatsu at Takadanobaba, Tokyo | The Micheline Bib Gourmand Tonkatsu better than Maisen or Tonki in Tokyo!

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place Located near Takadanobaba Station along the JR Yamamote Line, Narikura is easily one of the best tonkatsu I have ever eaten in Tokyo, and is without surprise on the Michelin Bib Gourmand list. The queue usually extends to the small road beside the restaurant, located at a basement of a nondescript old building where the queue extends from the basement stairway all the way to street level on most days. With less than 30 seater capacity, we were ushered to a corner table though you can watch all the kitchen action if you were sitting at the row of counter seats. The crowd is a mix of locals and foreigners with local Japanese being the majority. The Food The most challenging part of the menu is that it is all in Japanese and we took awhile to decipher the various options. As a guide, there are two main types of pork to go for – Rosu/ロース (loin) or Hire/ヒレ (fillet). Go for loin if you favour more fats in your meat, which also means Rosu is usually more tender than Hire. We went for two different types of tonkatsu, with both being rosu (loin) options. The Kiramugi (煌麦豚) [...]

Food Review: Meat Market at Hougang One | Wood-Fired Grilled Meats in the North East

Food Review: Meat Market at Hougang One | Wood-Fired Grilled Meats in the North East

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place There is finally a hip dining spot in Hougang, or even in the North-East of Singapore. Meet Meat Market located at Hougang One, a casual meat concept which serves grilled meats over different types of wood on different months. The concept reminds me of Red Eye Smokehouse at Lavender, except that the space at Meat Market is more cluttered with more dining tables, with an open kitchen concept where you can actually watch all the action behind the kitchen. The interior is quite cosy and simple, decorated with industrial bulb lightings and dark wood tables with metal edges. The Food Similar to Redeye Smokehouse, you get to customise your meat platter or there is also an option to go for the default combinations. Choose a base, meat, side and sauce and prices vary based on the type of meat. The wood used to grill the meats vary on different months, which lends different flavours to the meats. The price range is quite reasonable, where an a la carte order of Chicken thigh or Fried dory fish is S$7.90, with the highest end Ribeye and Tenderloin at S$14.90. Each meat order gives you a complementary side dish like cheesy [...]

Food Review: Uni Gallery by Oosterbay at The Plaza | Uni-centric Restaurant in Beach Road for Serious Uni Lovers

Food Review: Uni Gallery by Oosterbay at The Plaza | Uni-centric Restaurant in Beach Road for Serious Uni Lovers

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place It is the first Uni (Sea Urchin in Japanese) centric restaurant I am aware in Singapore. Meet Uni Gallery by Oosterbay, the one month old restaurant which as its name suggests, serves more Uni dishes than I have ever seen in Singapore. My first disclaimer is that the location of Uni Gallery by Oosterbay is really offbeat and there might be some difficulty locating it. The restaurant is located at the basement of an old building called The Plaza, which is adjacent and linked to PARKROYAL on Beach Road hotel. Take the spiral staircase from level 1 to the basement of The Plaza and you will find Uni Gallery. The modern space of Uni Gallery is a stark juxtaposition to the rest of the tenants, with fun Japanese motifs on the walls by a local artist and bright counter seatings where you could watch the chefs in action. Oosterbay is an online retailer of seafood, and in particular Japanese products, hence the relatively competitive pricing of Uni in the restaurant. The Food It’s not just all about Uni at Uni Gallery as the menu also offers other types of sashimi, sushi, grilled dishes and even oysters, though it [...]

Food Review: Fisk Seafoodbar & Market at Novotel Singapore on Stevens | A Taste of Fresh Scandinavian Seafood

Food Review: Fisk Seafoodbar & Market at Novotel Singapore on Stevens | A Taste of Fresh Scandinavian Seafood

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place Scandinavian specialty restuarant is hard to come by in Singapore given the huge geographical and logistical challenges, hence I was really excited to check out Fisk Seafoodbar & Market at the recently opened Novotel Singapore on Stevens. The restaurant name Fisk, which is Norwegian for fish, is decked in modern Scandinavian furnishings. The spacious 4,000sq ft space is split into a fresh market retail concept where you can get fresh seafood produce, as well as the seafoodbar dining area. I had an interesting time checking out the fresh produce, where the brand is focused on sustainable and fresh water seafood. That said, you can’t go very wrong with the group behind Fisk, Snorre Food which has been a veteran player specialising in distributing Norwegian and coldwater seafood. The Food The menu here is reflective of the fresh seafood produce from the market section. For lunch, there is a 4-course Set and a la carte selections like seafood on ice and open-face “Smørrebrød” sandwiches, while dinner include bar bites such as Fried Herring and dishes like Hot-Smoked Greenland Halibut. From the lunch menu, we started with the Prawns On Ice (S$6/100g), Norwegian coldwater prawns with roe. Despite the small [...]

Back then, I wasn't at an age to understand or embrace my roots. Things change with age, of course, and now I'm curious about the culture more than ever.

Food Review: Amo Italian Restaurant at Hong Kong Street, Clarke Quay | Casual Italian Dining and an affair with its Bone Marrow Pizza

Food Review: Amo Italian Restaurant at Hong Kong Street, Clarke Quay | Casual Italian Dining and an affair with its Bone Marrow Pizza

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place I have been keen to check out Amo, a casual Italian restaurant by the ilLido Group along Hong Kong Street near Clarke Quay station. It finally materialised as one of our year end gathering over casual food, bites and conversations. Upon entering Amo, short for the Italian word Amore (which means love), I was greeted by the bar section, followed by the main dining area which has a semi private dining room. I didn’t manage to venture to the back of the restaurant where there is an al fresco courtyard dining space. The ambience is casual and relaxed, though it is relatively dim as well. The Food The menu is more extensive than I thought, so it is a good idea to come in a group for a better variety. We started with the Burrata with Eggplant Salad, Walnuts and Bottarga (S$24), a fresh start to the meal. The eggplant salad adds a different dimension to the dish. There are quite a number of pizza options though the one which easily stood out for all of us is the Bone Marrow, Wild Garlic Pesto and Anchovy Salsa Verde (S$29). We didn’t spit actually bone marrow on the pizza, hence [...]

Snippets: New and Buzzing Singapore Restaurants in January 2018

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

New Restaurants Fisk Seafoodbar & Market Scandinavian specialty restuarant is hard to come by in Singapore given the huge geographical and logistical challenges, hence the excitement with the Fisk Seafoodbar & Market’s opening at the recently opened Novotel Singapore on Stevens. The restaurant name Fisk, which is Norwegian for fish, is decked in modern Scandinavian furnishings. The spacious 4,000sq ft space is split into a fresh market retail concept where you can get fresh seafood produce, as well as the seafoodbar dining area. The menu here is reflective of the fresh seafood produce from the market section. For lunch, there is a 4-course Set and a la carte selections like seafood on ice and open-face “Smørrebrød” sandwiches, while dinner include bar bites such as Fried Herring and dishes like Hot-Smoked Greenland Halibut.

Food Review: Kimme at Amoy Street | Modern Asian Cuisine by the Team behind One-Michelin Starred Meta

Food Review: Kimme at Amoy Street | Modern Asian Cuisine by the Team behind One-Michelin Starred Meta

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place If you have been a fan of the One-Michelin Starred Meta restaurant at Keong Saik, Kimme is your answer to a relatively more casual fine-dining concept even though this sounds oxymoronic. Located at 47 Amoy Street, the two weeks old Kimme restaurant is a modern, 48-seat Asian concept which takes up the entire 3-storey shophouse. The restaurant is the brainchild of Chef Sun Kim, the chef behind Meta and is helmed by Head Chef Louis Han who has worked with Chef Sun closely the past few years. The inspiration for the restaurant’s name comes from Chef Sun Kim, where his friends used to address him Kimme affectionately. My first impression of the space is the huge slab of white marble communal table with the open kitchen behind where you can watch the chefs perform magic to the plates. The space at level one is not huge yet it feels spacious, all thanks to the clever design of using ceiling mirrors to create a bigger sense of space. If you prefer a more private space, level two is a more intimate ambience for couples and some quiet moments, whereas level three is an attic space with only one table [...]

Food Review: Kenny’s Krabbi at Tai Thong Crescent | Casual Crab-centric restaurant in Potong Pasir

Food Review: Kenny’s Krabbi at Tai Thong Crescent | Casual Crab-centric restaurant in Potong Pasir

by theRantingPanda @ The Ranting Panda

The Place Located the The Venue Shoppes along Tai Thong Crescent in Potong Pasir, the few weeks old Kenny’s Krabbi is a casual restaurant with a focus on crab dishes. The restaurant is just a few doors away from one of our favourite beef noodles, the Original Orchard Emerald Beef Noodle. The casual and small space is able to accommodate less than 50 people. The Food The price range is huge, and goes from S$6.90 for Sliced Fish Soup all the way to S$68 for the Braised Crab Bee Hoon (800g). Other than a series of crabby dishes like the Rich Broth Crab Bee Hoon and Singapore Chilli Crab, there are also options like Seafood Crispy Noodles (S$8.90) and Seafood Hor Fun (S$8.90). We started with some sides like the Homemade Crabmeat Roll (S$6.90) and Signature Braised Pork Belly with Leaf Bun (S$3). The crabmeat roll is akin to Ngo Hiang, which is quite delicious. For mains, we had the Rich Broth Crab Bee Hoon 600g Crab (S$20/half portion). While the crab is quite fresh, I find the broth to be a tad diluted as I was expecting a much richer flavour. Similarly, the broth of the Sliced Fish Soup [...]
