Nobody goes to Sunshine Plaza unless they are printing name cards, but you would have heard about the famous Victor’s Kitchen and made a trip there for dim sum.
But we have another reason for you to visit that otherwise random mall.
Our search for good and affordable eateries led us to this discreet Japanese shop called Ichi Tei, which is located inside Sunshine Plaza. Ichi Tei’s set meals are less than S$14, which makes for a decent lunch or dinner. READ ON
The average cost of a mille crêpe in Singapore costs S$7.79 and we have based that estimated calculation across 15 different cafes.
Recently, we discovered the cheapest mille crêpe in town and it is being sold at a newly opened dessert parlour called Hasu Confections. A slice of Mille Crêpe here starts from S$6—almost half of what you would pay at popular establishments such as Lady M and Henri Charpentier!
Ippoh, a famous tempura restaurant in Osaka, is opening its casual dining concept in Singapore this month.
Ask any local in Osaka to recommend a tempura shop in Osaka and they are likely to direct you to Ippoh, which is said to be the oldest and best tempura eatery in the region. No foodie would pass up the chance to give this prestigious restaurant a try.
And if you aren’t heading to Japan anytime soon, that’s fine too because you will have the chance to taste Ippoh’s crispy and delicate Osaka style tempura right here in Singapore.
Ann Siang Hill is a highly sought-after district amongst expatriates and we attribute its popularity to the enclave of bars and restaurants housed in colonial shop houses. The dining establishments in this neighbourhood are predominantly western, but a new tenant is shaking things up a little.
Lo and behold, The Coconut Club! Do not let its name fool you – this place is neither a Tiki-themed cocktail bar nor a nightclub. Instead, it is a speciality Nasi Lemak restaurant. The owners have spent two years sourcing for the best coconuts and refining their nasi lemak recipe before opening this eatery.
Everyone loves Christmas and we look forward to festive feastings every year. Unfortunately, the annual yuletide celebration is never quite a wallet-friendly event. We know how you feel, we really do. Dining out with the family—especially a big one—is always a pricey affair.
But it doesn’t actually always have to be. This December, Pan Pacific Orchard, Singapore’s 10 at Claymore is offering a splendid Festive Buffet to our readers at incredibly affordable prices.
Simply quote ‘ladyironchef’ to enjoy a Festive Lunch Buffet and Festive Dinner Buffet at just S$58++* and S$98++* respectively for two. In other words, you only have to pay S$29++ each for an eat-all-you-want feast (for lunch). These promotions are reserved exclusively for you, and it is definitely the most value-for-money hotel dining deal thus far.
If you have yet to make any plans for Christmas celebration, it is about time you do so!
One of the main reasons we manage to get out of bed on Sundays is the prospect of the perfect brunch meal. We have had our fair share of champagne brunches in Singapore but one has always stood out above the rest.
Yes, Hilton Singapore’s exciting lineup in their Sunday Champagne Brunch is what dreams are made of. This time, they have revamped their menu with new dishes and a better dining experience.
What you must look out for is the new dessert bar that has now taken the place of Hilton Singapore’s popular D9 Cakery. Have the best of the cakery’s sweet treats—free-flow! This also means you are entitled to limitless cheesecakes, which are the best in town, by the way.
We were also thrilled by the new cheese room, one that impressed us with the huge variety of artisan and gourmet cheeses including a brand new raclette cheese station. The careful curation and intricate presentation of the spread never fail to impress.

One of the many reasons why we enjoy every visit to Edge at Pan Pacific Singapore is because the all-day dining restaurant takes pride in presenting an engaging gastro-tainment dining experience for all their guests. And every year-end festive season, Edge never fails to delight us with their massive Christmas feast.
Our childhood dream came true on our previous trip, when the dessert section of the restaurant was artfully converted into a scene from Hansel and Gretal—with a life-size gingerbread house filled with layers of artisanal desserts. And this year, there will be a different version of the gingerbead house with more new dessert additions!
Besides the glorious dessert station, they also have seven ‘live’ food theatres offering Asian cuisines such as Peranakan, Malay, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Singaporean and dishes from the Pacific region. Yes we know, there are too many choices!
