The modern European restaurant is helmed by one of Singapore’s youngest and most charming executive chef, Trevor Paulo, who has a flair for recreating western classics with interesting local twists that has surely captured our hearts.

Despite all the glorious achievements, Chef Trevor remains down-to-earth and enjoys interacting with all his guests.
The next time you are in the CBD or need some surprises in your life, head down to Sofitel So Singapore’s Xperience Restaurant to experience Chef Trevor’s new menu. You will be in for a great time, we promise.
Ding Dong! Who’s there?
The quirky brand is actually the brainchild of celebrity chef Ryan Clift. Ding Dong’s contemporary tapas menu features an eclectic mix of Asian-inspired cocktails, Peranakan-style desserts and East-meets-West gourmet dishes. These fusion delicacies are set to impress – at a hefty price of course.
Violet Herbs is what we call an alternative dating spot if you want to do away with the crowd and pretentious vibes at posh establishments.
Conveniently located at Tanjong Pagar, this modern semi-fine dining restaurant is within walking distance from the train station. The restaurant occupies the entire three stories of the shophouse unit along Tras Street – with the first two floors for dining, and a rooftop herb garden where fresh produce are used for the cooking.
Helmed by Chef Edward Hoe, Violet Herbs is one of the most underrated restaurants in Singapore that offers splendid 3-course set lunches (S$33+/pax) and 4-course set dinners (S$58+/pax) at very decent prices that feature high quality and intricate plating.
The main courses are also nothing short of impressive. Mark Violet Herbs down – it should be your next romantic lunch/ dinner spot.

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?
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.
