In celebration of Singapore’s 50th birthday, PARKROYAL on Pickering is presenting Singapore’s first-ever Lobsterfest Buffet at its star restaurant, Lime. Yes, you read that right. It is eat-all-you-can lobsters, and at a very sexy environment at that!
From 1st to 17th June 2015 and every Wednesday thereafter, the culinary team led by Executive Chef Vijay will be presenting a selection of Maine Lobster dishes influenced by Asian and Western flavours, reflecting the cosmopolitan Singapore of today. Expect your favourite crustacean cooked in 8 different ways, on top of its regular international buffet spread.
Also, the buffet comes with free flow of servings of our very own local Tiger beer as well as local drinks such as ‘Cincau’ (Grass Jelly), ‘Ma Ti Shui’ (Water Chestnut), ‘Tau Huay Shui’ (Soya Milk) and Lemongrass Tea.
The Lobsterfest Buffet at PARKROYAL on Pickering will be an extraordinary and phenomenal meal that you won’t soon forget, we promise. Here, we present the highlights of Lime’s Lobsterfest Buffet that is available only for a very limited period. You know you need that dinner.
How often do you walk down Orchard Road and find yourself stepping in to Hilton Singapore for a slice of their legendary cheesecake?
Well, we’d like to think more of Hilton Singapore. Do you know what used to be Checkers Brasserie is now revamped and known as Opus Bar & Grill? Dining there is a brand new experience now, and with Opus priding themselves on their grill, you know that you are in for the real deal.
The culinary team is helmed by Aussie chef Nick Philip, and the menu is contemporary with Australian influence. The charcoal grill and dry-age cabinet are what Opus Bar & Grill are building their success on, and they are on a mission to spoil you with only the best meals. Hilton Singapore is the first hotel in Asia to achieve MSC certifications, so you can look forward to sustainable seafood choices such as Seared Hokkaido Scallops, Black Cod Carpaccio, and Glacier 51 Toothfish Fillet.
We hopped by for dinner one of those nights, and here are some of the highlights of Opus Bar & Grill that you have to try when it is your turn too.

An institution in Paris, Angelina Tea Room and Patisserie is opening in Singapore at the newly revamped Capitol Galleria. Famous for its signature Mont Blanc and the World’s Best Hot Chocolate, Angelina will be bringing a little part of Paris to Singapore come end May.
There are some cafes that serve good savoury dishes, but fare poorly for desserts. And then, there are places that do remarkable desserts but you definitely wouldn’t want to go there for a proper meal.
Two Bakers, on the other hand, tick all the right boxes. It is a cosy space that sits along Horne Road and they do both mains and desserts really well. A comfortable space with sunlight streaming in, alongside a mixture of communal and long wooden tables; groovy jazz and bossa nova tracks fill the space. It is little wonder this cafe is fast in cementing its place in our hearts.

Crayfish cooked in eight different styles and crabs prepared in four different methods… Welcome to Plaza Brasserie’s Crazy For Crayfish and Crab Buffet – a teaser to its hugely popular annual Ultimate Crab Feast Buffet (which is happening later this June).
Known for its Best of Asia Buffet, Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Beach Road is introducing the Crazy For Crayfish and Crab Buffet for the very first time this year. In addition to its four signature crabs – chilli, black pepper, salted egg and curry – the restaurant is featuring crayfish cooked in eight different sauces. Sounds unreal, yes we know. You know this is one buffet you cannot skip.
Wok-fried Crayfish with Salted Egg, Crayfish with Chilli Crab Sauce, Rendang Crayfish, Thai Basil Crayfish, Honey Rock Sugar Crayfish, White Pepper Crayfish, Black Bean Sauce Crayfish and Hot Bean Sauce Crayfish. Good Lord, just take our money!
The Crazy For Crayfish and Crab Buffet is available at Plaza Brasserie from 3 to 26 April 2015. Be sure to ring up and make your reservation, because they are known to always be booked out real fast. The Ultimate Crab Feast Buffet last year was fully booked by the first week, and we wouldn’t expect anything less for this buffet. Crayfish and crab buffet? This is the best of both worlds!

Fans of Seasonal Tastes, rejoice because there is an upcoming Seafood Indulgence buffet dinner from 19 – 28 Mar 2015! We don’t know about you, but the word ‘seafood’ alone is enough to get us all excited.
Now, listen up. In addition to the existing international buffet spread that is mouthwateringly sumptuous no less, there will a crazy lineup of the prized treasures of the ocean - Canadian oysters, warm Oysters Rockefeller with spinach, bacon and parmesan, Oysters Diane with cheese and hollandaise, lobsters, prawns, salmon sashimi, Clams Casino baked with bread crumbs, as well as a Seafood Paella.
Sounds like a seafood feast, no?
We love a good meal at Palais Renaissance on days when we just want to get away from all the crazy crowd, and Palais Renaissance being so accessible from the main area makes it an ideal location for some quietness in the middle of the hubbubs of Orchard Road. The bonus? Free valet parking from 12pm – 4pm from Sunday till Thursday and 12pm – 11pm on Fri, Sat and Public Holidays. Car park charges are really reasonable, too.
But more than these, do you know why else we love Palais Renaissance? It may not have the longest list when it comes to F&B tenants, but what it has to offer is a unique experience at each of its tenant – nothing mainstream, nothing too predictable, and with surprisingly affordable price tags.
Yes, Palais Renaissance is not all about expensive shopping for the high net-worth. While it is a destination shopping mall, it also has some very impressive dining outlets to boast. And you need not pay an arm and a leg for a meal here.
We are giving away 5 X S$20 dining vouchers from P. Bistro, as well as 10 sets of Bara Chirashi Set Lunches from Ishinomaki Grill & Sake Bar. More details of the giveaway at the end of this post.
Here is our guide to Palais Renaissance where you can find 4 affordable dining destinations in the heart of Orchard Road.
With doors opened since 1995, Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant is one of luxurious Chinese restaurants along Orchard Road that serves classic Cantonese delicacies. It sits within Singapore Marriott Hotel, and its accessibility and ambience makes it an ideal destination for a family meal, business luncheon or a centralised gathering spot.
From 9 to 22 March 2015, Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant at Singapore Marriott Hotel is hosting guest chefs Chow Shing Yip and Liu Wai Hung from JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong to present a Hong Kong Dim Sum Feast.
Italian cuisine is too underrated in Singapore. Not enough attention is given, or it is because there are not enough authentic options in town? We can never say no to a good Italian meal, because the sheer variety is enough to keep us occupied. There is always something new to explore, new flavours to fall in love with, and different textures to entice us.
For one, Waterfall Ristorante Italiano at Shangri-la Hotel, Singapore offers a daily spread that is sumptuous no less, and we can always count on the chefs for an authentic Italian affair. If you haven’t heard, the former Waterfall Cafe has been transformed into a Southern Italian trattoria that features handmade pastas and fresh seafood.
Prices are still very reasonable, but the dishes are better and heartier than ever. The new Chef de Cuisine, Marco De Vincentis, hails from Naples. And his experience will bring you nothing but the most authentic tastes of Southern Italy.
Think fresh seafood from the Southern Riviera, nutty flavours, and lots of lemon touches. Nothing overly fanciful too, just really playing around with fresh and quality ingredients to accentuate the essence and to showcase the true Italian flavours.
Take a trip to Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore – one of Singapore’s best hotels – and have a quiet Italian meal. You will love their new menu. Here are some highlights from Waterfall Ristorante Italiano’s new menu that we sampled:
One of the newest and most happening cafes in town now is Boufe at Phoenix Park, and if you are scratching your head over what it means and how to pronounce, Boufe is quite essentially made up from the words ’boutique’ and ‘cafe’. Read it as boo-fay.
Few restaurants in Singapore are as romantic and artistic as Arteastiq Boutique Tea House is. Pun is intended, but you might derive from its name that this restaurant is all about art and tea. They call it the “art of teasing”, but we think there is so much more.
It is the kind of sexiness you would associate with a date night, or a regal dining affair for the high society. Arteastiq sits at a quiet corner of Mandarin Gallery, and scores for its accessible location and wide space. Tasteful interior design with predominant monochrome furniture, exotic chandeliers and sporadic stalks of white flowers, chi-chi ambience with French jazz, an art studio, and a robust menu of artisanal teas and all kinds of wondrous food dishes.
We sampled the new menu recently, and we have been containing our excitement of sharing them since. Which is why we say Arteastiq is more than just tea and art jamming, because the food menu is nothing short of impressive. From an assortment of appetisers and contemporary mains that are created with love, to a selection of desserts that are reinterpreted with modern takes, the new menu packs a punch and gives us even more reasons to return to Arteastiq.
Arteastiq is undisputedly among our favourite dining concepts along Orchard Road, and here are our picks from its new menu:
