Friday night, we had Italian food :)
It was at inItaly - now one of my favourite restaurants in town. Good place, good food, good people!
Wednesday this week, I had the fabulous pleasure of dining at ME@OUE, one of the city’s latest fine dining spots.
‘Word on the Street’ is back! :)
It’s an entry written like an interview, introducing one or more attractions on a single street in Singapore. Avorylane’s first ‘Word on the Street’ (hill, really) was about a Russian Bar atop Duxton Hill.
This time, ‘Word on the Street’ is gonna feature a lorong (= lane) popular with foodies, known as Lorong Kilat.
Last night, a Thursday, I met San, C and K for dinner. It was a reunion of sorts (because I haven’t seen San in a long long time!), and to celebrate K’s belated birthday. All that happened at Le Bistrot du Sommerlier.:)

Late Wednesday night, Kumz and I met for dinner at Smokey’s BBQ because he was craving ribs and I like the east :)
A month ago, I did something I had always wanted to do.
I QUIT MY JOB.
Yay! And one of the first things I did afterwards was to take a short holiday in Hong Kong :)
Last week, E, JH and I had lunch at Poulet, a French restaurant in the (IMO) still considerably new Bugis+. This mall used to be known as Iluma, which was an epic failure of a mall really. Thank god CapitaMalls took over and introduced real shopping and dining options. Haha. Bugis+ is certainly way cooler now.
Last week, I was psyched to hear that Plaza Singapura’s new annex had opened. With its same few predictable restaurants and uninspiring shops, I always thought the mall was not keeping up with the times. Good thing it underwent a revamp :) One of its new additions included Muchos, a modern Mexican restaurant located just next to Starbucks.
Hello from Manhattan, NYC!
This is Roti Telur or egg prata with chicken curry. We had it at Singapura (106 Lexington Ave), a small restaurant just blocks away from our hotel.
Just thought it’d be cool to blog about a Singaporean restaurant located not in Singapore for once, but in the US :)
Truth be told though, there were none of those dishes we call authentic to Singapore, like chilli crab or chicken rice. The menu was a mix of Thai, Malaysian and Indian food. We had a beef pad thai to share too. Haha. Still good!
This is a New Yorker’s more comprehensive take on Singapura (also where i learnt about the restaurant!): http://mobile.newyork.seriouseats.com/2012/11/date-night-singapura-singaporean-hawker-murray-hill-restaurant-review.html
For me, Sundays here mean a few things. It means waking up to brunch with friends, bumming at home and listening to music from Gold 90.5FM, reflecting on what has happened in the past week and making plans for the upcoming one :) Last Sunday, I met the gang for brunch at Dempsey Brasserie.
Just last Saturday, I had the worst dining experience in my life! I honestly didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at the ridiculousness of the situation, but thankfully Sher was with me throughout :)
On Thursday night, we decided to have dinner at Bistro Du Vin, a French eatery in the heart of town. Best thing was it began to rain in the middle of dinner! One of the nicest feelings in the world must be dining inside a noisy bistro while it’s pouring outside :)
Only recently, I discovered the existence of pescetarians (both the people, and word). Lol. Pescetarians are omnivores who abstain from all meat, but only eat fish and usually seafood too. Interesting! Anyway, to satisfy my recent craving for fish, I had dinner at Greenwood Fish Bistro last Tuesday.
This week has been a really awesome week for food. After Kith Cafe on Thursday, I discovered another gem of a restaurant the next night :) B and I had dinner at Little Diner, a literally small eatery along Bukit Timah Road, in between 5th and 6th Avenues.
For my belated birthday dinner, S and I agreed to try out Kith Cafe at Park Mall. I had brunch at Kith’s other branch at Robertson Quay almost a year ago now, and I remember that cafe to be really small and stuffy. But our experience at Kith at Park Mall was really fabulous tonight. We enjoyed everything, from the food to the service to the ambience :)
