This is it. Mitzo is the sexiest Chinese restaurant in Singapore yet.
Situated in the heart of Orchard Road, Mitzo’s prime location makes it the perfect destination for business luncheons, family dinners, dates, or a late night’s out. Celebrated Chef Nicky Ng – previously the head chef at Michelin-starred Hakkasan New York – now fronts the restaurant with his A-team, skilfully preparing delectable modern Cantonese dishes that will have you returning for more. The array of impressive Asian cocktail concoctions also adds a touch of sexiness to the restaurant.
We are so in love with its gorgeous interior. Very atypical of a Chinese restaurant, Mitzo is absolutely sexy, and has a inviting lounge-like vibe. Here are 10 reasons why you should visit Mitzo Restaurant, right about now.

Tucked away in a little corner in Telok Blangah is what used to be a retreat bungalow owned by the Yemeni Alkaff family. Alkaff Mansion Ristorante provides a nice respite from the fast paced city areas in Singapore, perching on top of Telok Blangah Hill (used to be known as Washington Hill). This well-known location was once the centre of high society parties and other events, besides being a family home to the Alkaff family.
Since the mid 1990s, Alkaff Mansion Ristorante has been known to serve award-winning cuisine to patrons but ever since LHN Culinary Concepts took over the reigns in 2010, the restaurant finally restored its splendour and has become one of Singapore’s go-to dining spots and event venue for corporate, private events and weddings.
Here is what we enjoyed the most from Executive Chef Simone Depalmas’ intricately crafted menu, strongly influenced by his Italian roots.
Earlier last month, we had the privilege to hang out with Celebrity IronChef, Cat Cora. She was in town for a week, and we were really stoked to host her. One of our lucky readers also won the chance to dine at the stunning Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora at Resorts World Sentosa.
Together, we spent the evening sampling her new dishes, and the experience of dining at Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora is like no other. Few restaurants in the world have the opportunity to boast about being part of an aquarium, and Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora is one of them.
Dinner was great. We had a ball of a time together. And Chef Catherine is the sweetest lady.
In conjunction with Father’s Day, our readers were tasked to share their fathers’ favourite fruits with us, and the lucky winner (picked at random) will win a dinner for four at Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora. Together, we sampled Chef Catherine’s new creations, and the cherry on top was the special dessert that Chef Catherine prepared using Dad’s favourite fruit. Pineapple and banana it was; very tropical, very local-like.
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.
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.
MUSEO Restaurant & Bar is a great masterpiece.
If you haven’t heard, there is this enchanting restaurant that sits on the mezzanine level of Quayside Isle at Sentosa Cove, and it is known as the “Art on the Isle”. The divine combination of art and culinary take our breath away every single time, and each visit still charms us like never before.
It is like Picasso and Warhol had joined forces and blessed this space with their artistic flares. Filled with magic and astounding surprises at every corner and in every detail, MUSEO is one of the most romantic restaurants in Singapore. Its notably fine culinary execution makes the restaurant a perfect venue for dining – celebrate a special occasion here, or treat yourselves to an unforgettable night of arm jamming and regale cuisine.
Because dining at MUSEO is one sexy choice that you must not miss for the world.
Everyone has their favourite special restaurant. A place where you go to celebrate a special occasion like birthday, anniversary or Valentine’s day. A place where you can bring a girl for the first date. A place where your partner and you go to have a great time. Or a place where girlfriends meet for girls’ night out.
Where to go for a romantic dinner? Here is our guide to Singapore’s 20 Most Romantic Restaurants.
If you were patient enough to learn about the history of The White Rabbit at Harding Road, you’d probably have had a pretty intense lesson on Singapore’s history. Occupying the space of what used to be a chapel, this one-of-its-kind restaurant impresses the moment we step foot in. It is whimsical, classy and charming all at the same time.
We were excited to find out Chef Benjamin Tan is back, assuming the role of Head Chef after a hiatus, and has made a radical overhaul of the menu. It seems we weren’t the only one pleased; our waiter gushed over the good news, and reassures us that the meal was going to be nothing short of spectacular.
For many, Valentine’s Day is a dreadful day as restaurants mark up their prices ridiculously. However, it is still possible to have fun celebrating Valentine’s Day – with your partner, your family, or a group of friends – if you know where to go.
Here’s my guide to Valentine’s Day Dinner in Singapore 2013.
