Wayne Nish & The Screening Room On Ann Siang Road


Just when this blog thought that the Singapore food scene has gotten boring with far too many Italian restaurants, he gets an invite to a tasting of a new menu created by Wayne Nish at The Screening Room on Ann Siang Road.

Wayne Nish is a Chef from New York who’s settled in Singapore about 6 months ago. He has, let me check the press kit here… He has 16 stars including one from Michelin. Not matter how ironic it seems, that particular star from a famous car tire manufacturer seems to be highly prized, even more so than say, one from a domestic appliance manufacturer. But what do I know?

Anyway, I was pleased that Hsian Ming of Sixth Sense graciously allowed me to invite my friends because it is always more fun to try a new restaurant with friends.

Slow Food Singapore At Aurum


Molecular Gastronomy was supposed to bring “a breath of fresh air to haute cuisine” according to a F&B rag, unfortunately a lot of the air seems to be trapped within uninspired foams or limpid gels in Singapore. It’s a bubble that burst long before, fortunately, it grew big.

This blog is so tired of Gimmicky Gastronomy that it was with some skepticism when he agreed to go for this SFCSS luncheon at Aurum.

Tuna Wasbi Pizza At The Four Seasons Bali

Four Seasons Bali

It all started when one of our friends was talking about how her daughter was raving about the Tuna Wasabi Pizza at the Four Seasons Bali and how the daughter, a frequent guest at the hotel, would make it a point to have the pizza every time she visits.

Now, normally this blog is not given to profound piscine ponderings, but this sounded very intriguing.

Fusion Food At Noor Jannah’s Kitchen On Jalan Masjid


The East Coast of Singapore is probably where all the 24-hour Muslim coffee shops started. Some might say it’s because that’s where Geylang Serai is or more accurately, where Geylang is. Vigorous romps makes one hungry and there is nothing like a late-night prata with curry washed down with Teh Alia. In any case, east of Singapore, starting from Kallang, seems to have the highest concentration in Singapore of places of worship, good food and negotiable love.

This blog received a SMS from a friend who received an invite to a tasting at a newly opened stall in a coffee shop located just outside Kembangan Court. As no one has been there before, a contingency restaurant was planned just in case we needed something more substantial.

Our fears were unfounded as food at Noor Jannah’s Kitchen was pretty good.

Le Papillon at Red Dot Design Museum

collageThe Red Dot Design Museum was formerly the Maxwell Traffic Police Station. Walking into the place evoked lots of memories for me; mostly of me bailing friends (and family) out of jail in the wee hours of the morning. Sometimes I think it is for the better to turn my mobile phone off at night.

The Red Dot Design Museum is a strange place. It tries to look edgy with its graffitti-inspired art but there is a certain lack of understanding of the artform that, at best, makes the images look desperately contrived and at worst, derivative. People familiar with this sort of artform will cringe at the meaningless doodles that would make Banksy reach for the whitewash.
