2017 Yusheng Round Up - Lan Ting

Seriously, if you really want to celebrate Lunar New Year, you should be cooking at home for your family as there is a true spirit of bonding at work.

But I do acknowledge that the majority of Singaporeans would prefer their matriarchs to take a breather for once and dine out. So here is my round up for the coming rooster year.

Hajime Tonkatsu - My Favourite Meal of 2016

There is a misconception that favourite meals of the year must exist in an exclusive vacuum of michelin starred establishments, or a table bill of a couple hundred bucks per head.

The simple truth is the best food is usually the most comforting, and the ones that you will likely go back for, again and again.

A Heartwarming Christmas With Si Jun and Pasta Fresca

Sometime during this festive season, there will be someone looking for a light to guide them out of their darkness. For it has been a crazy year, and with a depressed economy and an uncertain political outlook elsewhere, we need to find ways where we can feel good about ourselves.

And thanks to the good intentions of Pasta Fresca, one family will have good reason to feel positive going into the new year.

Starker Fresh Beer and Bistro at Hillview 2

 This post is brought to you by the good folks from Starker Fresh Beer.

Starker Fresh Beer may be more known for its alcoholic beverages, but they have also joined the fray into the F&B establishments as well.

I was able to attend a special media tasting to try some of their food and drinks at their Hillview 2 outlet and it is a superb place to chill and unwind. And especially for football fans, it's a great place to catch those BPL matches too.

Tsuta Singapore - Delicate and Exquisite Shio and Shoyu Ramen

Michelin Guide's only ramen entry is making its debut in Singapore at Pacific Plaza. Chef Yuki, who is the maestro behind Tsuta in Tokyo is bringing the same quality and excellence here.

As a testament to preserving his pristine and precise approach to his ramen making, everything is sourced at the highest level and even using specially concocted soy sauce and bringing over the special wheat from Japan to construct the noodles.

Tochigi Waygu at Fat Cow - Beef Nirvana For Three Nights Only

Seldom do I rave to the high heavens on food these days, so when I say this is the apex of beef gastronomy, you better believe it.

Fat Cow is a place that I have heard and read raves for some time, but never got around to visiting it for one reason or another. For 3 nights only, visiting Chef Seichi Shinbo brings with him a tasting menu that is guaranteed to dazzle and charm even the most jaded of diners.

Super Loco at Customs House - Possibly the Best Mexican Food in Town

Mexican food has never been my thing. Until now, that is. The Loco chain of Mexican gastrobars have certainly lit up the food scene in town since Lucha Loco opened its doors a few years back.

Adding Super Loco at Clarke Quay to bolster its lineup, it was only a matter of time before the third, and most high end Loco outlet is up and running.

Plentyfull - Scratch Cooking is the Way to Go

Plentyfull may be a mouthfull to say, but it certainly resonates with me with its scratch cooking philosophy and it's insistence of using fresh produce.

In an era where hardly anything you eat is fresh outside, Plentyfull is plenty refreshing when it comes to its cuisine.
