The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore has unveiled an exciting new dining concept – Colony – that will excite all epicurean foodies alike. Introducing Colony with a gourmet buffet that is set to impress even the most discerning taste buds with its mouthwatering spread of Chinese, Indonesian, Indian, Malaysian, Western and local dishes. .
Now, just when you think Colony is “just another buffet line-up in Singapore”, read on and you will realize that it is like no other. Set to transport you back in time to when Singapore was founded, the culinary journey at Colony will remind you of our heritage
The eight different conservatory kitchens take centre stage at the buffet, giving it a very theatrical effect; diners can watch their food being prepared freshly in front of them and each ‘live’ station showcases one of the many different ethnic cuisines that has shaped Singapore over the past decades.
The laksa with homemade lobster balls are to die for, and we had endless helpings of the crepe suzettes. Behold, the 10 highlights of our experience at Colony.

With an extensive menu of different teas – both hot and iced – and an assortment of green tea desserts such as swiss rolls and tiramisu, there will always be something to fall in love with.
Needless to say, a place like O’sulloc is a place for us.

Hola! We spent an amazing Sunday late afternoon with our lovely readers at Changi City Point’s RessRoom, bonding over tantalising Spanish gourmet food and alcoholic beverages. We hope everyone had a smashing great time, because we sure did with all the company we were so happy to have.
The 2-hour food workshop was held at RessRoom – situated at The Oasis, a serene sanctuary tucked away at a corner of level one of Changi City Point and surrounded by beautiful lush greenery.
Now, while we reminisce the goodies we had that day, we would also love to share with you the fun and the behind-the-scenes of our cocktail making and food workshop.
Stepping into Ninethirty by awfullychocolate in East Coast Road is like visiting a long lost friend at his/her home. An immediate sense of comfort welcomes you, and your senses will be drawn to the aromatic smells wafting from the kitchen.
Ninethirty also doubles up as the flagship Awfully Chocolate store, and it is the only concept of its kind in Singapore.
It is a casual bistro that is suitable for a night out with a group of friends, or a date with your partner. It is nothing too fancy, just a simple and unpretentious space that serves a reasonably-priced menu of comforting Western food with Asian touches, chocolate cocktails as well as the most amazing chocolate desserts.
The Butchers Club Burger – widely known as the best burger joint in Hong Kong – is opening its first restaurant in Singapore at Clarke Quay on 2 October 2015.
We had one of the best, if not the best, dry-aged steaks when we attended The Butchers Club’s private dinner in Hong Kong last year. Boy, are we so looking forward to the launch of The Butchers Club in Singapore!
You might have heard about our love for Hong Kong umpteen times – we still do, but today, we want to share some dining highlights from a recent trip because there are many reasons to love dining at Central, really!
We all have different objectives when we travel – some like to just stuff their faces silly with all the good food, some like to experience the local culture so that they have memories to keep in their hearts for always, some like to explore the famous attractions and sites. But because we always prioritise eating (greedy like that), our tummies are ever ready to be surprised, ever game to dine at non-touristy places, ever excited to explore all the food awaiting us.
Central is a bustling area in Hong Kong, and while it may be the CBD of Hong Kong, it actually has many dining options to offer.
From a very gorgeous cafe that is filled with natural sunlight, to what is probably the sexiest Japanese restaurant in Central, and a brilliant bakery that bakes the most creative croissants; here are 7 Restaurants in Central Hong Kong To Fall In Love With.
When we were planning for our trip to the Big Apple, we told ourselves that we would go on a hunt for New York City’s Best Ice Cream and Gelato. For some reason, we look out for ice cream at every city we travel to. It is like an instant mood-lifter, and it makes every trip complete. And we are starting to sound like kids.
But you see, we don’t love ice cream because it is good or right or healthy. We love it precisely because it is not. And with ice cream, there is no such thing as moderation or enough; we just go on and one, one cone after another.
Being at New York City means having access to so many great ice cream and gelato options – from the simplest to the craziest flavours, nothing is gonna stop the New Yorkers from enjoying their cones. And you can too, with our guide to New York City’s Best Ice Cream and Gelato.
A recent trip to Jakarta had us falling in love with Nomz Kitchen & Pastry, a sexy casual dining restaurant helmed by Chefs Kim Pangestu and Arnold Poernomo. Located in Grand Indo East Mall, we had numerous memorable meals at Nomz Kitchen & Pastry during our stay in the Indonesian city. We don’t even know where to begin!
Nomz Kitchen & Pastry was also the place of our choice for our first ever overseas Meet-and-Greet session, and that made it even more memorable and significant for us at Ladyironchef. We are extremely humbled by the support we got from all our Indonesian followers, and the love and enthusiasm further affirmed our choice for making Jakarta our destination to meet all you lovely people.
Apart from the fun-filled afternoon we had sampling the chefs’ new creations and catching up with our followers, we also want to share all our favourite dishes from Nomz Kitchen & Pastry. The culinary team fed us so well that we were pretty reluctant to return home. That said, for all who are headed to Jakarta or already living in Jakarta, a trip to Nomz Kitchen & Pastry is necessary.
Here are the various highlights from all the feasting sessions we had, as well as some photos from our Meet-and-Greet session:

Perched atop Telok Blangah Hill is an opulent colonial building occupied by Italian Restaurant Alkaff Mansion Ristorante. The bungalow was once a highly sought-after destination amongst the entitled in the 1930s, where it was renowned for the most extravagant socialite parties.
Painstakingly restored to its grandeur in 2011, all present-day visitors are warmly welcomed to experience the glorious splendour of yesteryears while enjoying authentic Italian fare. And on Sundays, Alkaff Mansion Ristorante offers a decadent buffet spread of Italian gourmet alongside unlimited flow of Prosecco, White and Red wines for only S$98++ per adult.
The seemingly hefty price tag is actually an amazing deal, especially when compared to the average rates in Singapore’s fine dining industry. Diners get to indulge in unlimited servings of fresh seafood, fine meats, pastas in a variety of sauces, and refreshing bubbles! You would probably have to pay twice more when ordering such amounts in other fancy establishments.
So, what’s not to love about Alkaff Mansion Ristorante’s Sunday Prosecco Brunch?
