Pete’s Place at Grand Hyatt Singapore Introduces a New A La Carte Menu

Pete's Place

Pete’s Place at Grand Hyatt Singapore has been around for so many decades and is a longstanding favourite among its many loyal customers. Conveniently located in town, it is a rustic and homely outlet that dishes out nothing but the most authentic Italian dishes.

Since joining Pete’s Place, Chef Andrea Bontempi has been working to include elements from Northern Italy – from the high plateau of Piedmont to the coastal cities of Livorno and Genoa, and his home in Brescia – into the new a la carte menu.

Among the new additions to the menu, we enjoyed the Burrata e Caponata (S$22). Any good Italian worth its salt will have a good burrata on its menu, and Pete’s Place is no exception. Drizzled with aged balsamic vinegar, the burrata sat atop an eggplant caponata.

Pete's Place Grand Hyatt

The pastas at Pete’s Place are freshly handmade from scratch, and there are twelve options on the menu to choose from. The Ravioli Astice (S$36) is a delicious combination of lobster ravioli with burrata cheese and saffron zucchini sauce, but the standout dish for us was definitely the Gamberi e Nero di Seppia (S$29) – squid ink linguine with seared sustainable prawns and calamari.

The Cacciucco alla Livornese (S$34) brought back memories from our trip to Livorno last year. Originated from the coastal city in Tuscany, this seafood stew is a classic dish that is popularly enjoyed by Italian fishermen. Traditionally, fishermen used what was left over from their catch to make the stew. What makes Pete’s Place’s rendition different is the use of the freshest seafood – a melting pot of squid, baby octopus, prawns, sustainable barramundi, cod, white bait, mussels and clams.

La Cotoletta alla Milanese (S$45) is a Milanese speciality, and something that we always order whenever we are at Milan. Very few places in Singapore serve this dish, so you could imagine our elation when we saw it on Pete’s Place new menu. The breaded veal chop is accompanied by a simple herb salad and tomato confit.

For desserts, you must get our all-time favourite Tiramisu (S$12) but make sure you save room for the Bonnet Astigiana (S$10). We loved how Chef Andrea has given the traditional Amaretti Chocolate Pudding a refreshing touch by adding orange blossom and basil cress.

The Ultimate Orchard Road Food Guide: 90 Places To Dine at

Orchard Road Food Guide

It has been four years since we wrote our guide on restaurants in Orchard Road and though we update them from time to time, we thought it is high time to re-curate and to introduce a new guide, featuring even more dining places in Singapore’s most famous shopping street.

Options are aplenty and no doubt we are all spoilt for choice, but are they really worth their queues/ price tags/ waiting time? We have friends from overseas who visit Singapore and have limited time on our sunny island, and then we have our locals who do not want to waste their calories unnecessarily.

The next time you head to Orchard Road, you need not face the risk of stepping in to a random diner and not knowing what to expect.

Here is the Ultimate Orchard Road Food Guide - Top 90 Places to dine at Orchard Road, Somerset and Dhoby Ghaut:

Han Geun Doo Geun

Tolido’s Espresso Nook Cafe & Coffee Bar Singapore

Tolido Waffles

Sitting in the heart of Crawford, just 5 minutes away from Bugis and Haji Lane, Tolido’s Espresso Nook has its series of specialty brews that come with photo-worthy latte art.

But there is definitely more than coffee here here. Small as it may be, it is actually pretty cosy with the bustling activities taking place indoors. Less indie, but no less happening. It is a familiar haunt for regulars and friends, and the warmth of the crowd really grew on us. It felt like crashing a party, but less intimidating and still reserving your own space.

If you are in the neighbourhood and like us, you do not fancy the crowd, escape to Tolido’s Espresso Nook for a cuppa and some casual but gratifying food. Here are some of our favourite items on the menu:

Tóng Lè Private Dining: The Best Chinese Fine Dining Restaurant in Singapore

Tong Le Private Dining Restaurant

How does it really feel like to be at the top of the world? Fantabulous, of course. What about dining while looking down at the marvellous world below you? Even better.

Well, Tóng Lè Private Dining offers such a top-of-the-world experience. Sort of. It sits within the revolving tower of OUE building, and though it is on the tenth level, the experience spans across two levels and it is absolutely incredible. Using only the finest and most premium ingredients from around the world, expect world-class contemporary Chinese cuisine prepared by the team of highly-trained chefs, impeccable service by the team of polished wait staff, and a panoramic view of the Marina and Collyer Quay from the top. Tóng Lè Private Dining is indeed one of the best-kept secrets in town.

Our recent meal was one so remarkable that had us lingering for more. We are already planning a second visit back, and the two extremely value-for-money new sets – a 6-course Sky lunch (S$60/pax) and 7-course Heavenly Dinner (S$80/pax) — sweeten the idea even further. You might think an elaborate meal like this would cost a bomb; well, we thought so too. We were pleasantly shocked by the digestible price tags.

Tong Le Private Dining

Still not your everyday restaurant prices of course, but for the amount and (superb) quality of food you get, it is a pretty sweet deal and it is little wonder the restaurant is regularly packed with loyal fans every day.

If you haven’t tried, here is sharing our experience and we know for sure you’ll be a fan with just one try. Here’s why Tóng Lè Private Dining is the best Chinese fine dining restaurant in Singapore.

Reasons to Celebrate Christmas at PARKROYAL on Beach Road (With the Best Turkey in Town)

PARKROYAL on Beach Road Christmas

We’ve tried many turkeys for Christmas this year, but Plaza Brasserie’s rendition is hands down the best that we’ve had in Singapore. Ever since we sampled Executive Chef Jackson’s and Executive Sous Chef Ken’s tantalising roasts during For The Love of Roasts Buffet - PARKROYAL on Beach Road’s inaugural presentation of a buffet that is centered around tantalising roasts and exotic meats – we have no doubt that the duo can cook their meat really well.

So we were really excited to try their Christmas Buffet because of the various meats that are part of the Christmas lineup. The highlight is without a doubt the aforementioned traditional roast turkey, but equally good is the Hungarian Mangalica Pork – making its debut at Plaza Brasserie this year. Also, you can get two Boston Lobsters (weighing 500g each) at just S$38++ during the festive promotion every day from 12 to 31 Dec 2014.

Christmas Log Cake

We share with you the various meats that you cannot miss the world for, and yes, they are available for takeaways too. Oh, have you seen strawberry snowmen too? Too cute to be true, but we are all prey to such Instagram-worthy desserts, isn’t it?

Here are the reasons to celebrate Christmas at Plaza Brasserie, PARKROYAL on Beach Road! Have a very merry Christmas!

La’ Coffee – Traditional Kopi and Toast in a Modern Cafe

La Coffee Kaya Toast

Kaya toast and eggs is the nation’ favourite breakfast combination. Together with an aromatic cup of local-style coffee or tea – or what we affectionately call kopi or teh – it is the simplest form of comfort food and one that we will never get sick of.

Whenever we dine at YaKun or Toast Box, we’d wish for an operator to reinvent the environment of a toast-and-eggs joint with a modern and cafe-like take. So when we heard about La’ Coffee - located next to Old Hen Coffee Bar in the Rangoon Road neighbourhood - we headed down on its first week of operation to check them out.
