And for our veggies, we got their Brussels Sprouts ($16). Utterly sinful tasting yet with a nett carbs amounting to 6g, the plate was loaded with sweet sprouts, sausage crumbs, diced burnt peppers, mint, and a pool of chorizo sabayon. The key element here is the vibrant sauce which was tantalizingly savoury and delivering an almost cheesy flavour that I really enjoyed. The meaty flavour of the crumbs also adding some heartiness to the greens.

The star of the show was none other than their Calamari ($24). Accentuating the flavour of the fresh seafood, the bed of Zhug (a green sauce made with peppers, coriander, garlic, and various spices) was aromatic and pleasantly spicy, giving the dish that oomph factor. The chunks of calamari were well-executed too with its texture being chewy-soft and supple. Oh, and that layer of chorizo fat being the icing on the cake.

Joining the slew of restaurants offering up keto-friendly dishes here in Singapore, Persea’s low-carb menu features mostly Mediterranean flavours that I found to be pretty unique and crowd-pleasing. To start, we had the Chicharrónes ($6) which were seasoned with chilli lime salt. Light and airy, the puffed pork skins were not oily at all and a fun snack with the delicate savouriness of the salt.

Speaking of cake, if you are into cheese platters, save space for their Rosemary Basque Cheesecake ($16). Not to be confused with the cheesecakes we are used to; their variation is a savoury cheese platter presented in the familiar dessert form. Strong on the blue cheese, the cake also includes cream cheese, camembert and I detected a light whiff of rum. And like a cheese board, served alongside were some biscuits and blueberry compote to helps cut through the richness. Hence, proceed with caution for people that don’t really like blue cheese or those looking for some sweets.

Cicada, one of the new restaurants that popped up right smack in Clarke Quay boasts a cozy atmosphere and serves up amazing dishes. The Char-Grilled Spiced French Chicken ($30 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) boasts a wide variety of ingredients cooked with a grilled chicken that is tender and packed with flavour. The miso cod capellini ($30 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) is also unforgettable as the cod itself is very well executed. As for the mini tacos, well... I would give that a miss.

Super hip prawn noodle bar with a huge variety of drinks. This is their prawn noodle soup which comes with either ramen noodles or la mian noodles. Really good!

This gorgeous plate is one dish for the carbonara lovers. As one of the 2 pastas available on the mains menu, I'd rather this anytime!

The thick, creamy (though there's no cream) & cheesy linguine with a perfect yolk in the middle layers every corner of your mouth as you slurp down each strand.

The dish is well-balanced & is exactly what you'd expect, no less.

Apart from the mains, please have a go at their cocktails! Their usual prices are $19++ & up which is fairly affordable for CBD area drinks.

Went to French fold on Sunday brunch - peak hour. Had to wait around an hour due to our group number of 7, but it was worth it! Had no.4 comte which consists of egg, sautéed mushrooms and organic ham. It was quite filling and tasted savoury and satisfactory. Due to the long wait, the servers actually gave us a dessert crepe on the house which we are really thankful for :-)

At Violet Oon Satay Bar & Grill, the restaurant has recently launched a full plant-based menu that utilises natural ingredients from vegetables to mushrooms and tofu to create these flavourful dishes using Peranakan spices and condiments.

We were treated to an exciting lineup of dishes such as the Eggplant Goreng Dip with Emping Cracker ($17), a bar bites’ favourite which has the smokiness from the eggplant purée that’s complemented by the slight bitterness from the emping cracker. The grilled King Oyster Mushroom ($24) that comes in a creamy coconut sauce, Garam Assam Tau Kwa ($20) topped with a diced pineapple and pink ginger flower compote, and the chargrilled Cauliflower Sambal Tumis ($19) are dishes that go hand-in-hand with some white rice. For spice lovers, you wouldn’t want to miss out on the fiery Jagung Bakar Pedas Manis ($18) which are grilled corn on the cobs that are brushed with a tangy and spicy sauce topped with feta cheese.

The rice dishes, especially the Nasi Goreng Kangkung ($23), might have just stolen the show as it was the unanimous favourite for the wok fried aroma and something that you wouldn’t think could pair together, water morning glory in fried rice, actually works. To end the meal proper, you cannot skip on the Pulot Hitam with dairy-free Coconut Ice Cream ($14) and Kueh Beng Kah ($15) as the Peranakans just do excellent desserts.

I love seeing more gluten free options popping up all over SG!! These buckwheat galettes were so tasty and crispy and go really well with their savoury toppings. I only wish you could also order their dessert crepes with the buckwheat batter too! Just to make the whole menu more gluten intolerant friendly.

A very belated post on a celebratory meal to conclude 2020. The chosen destination? A sensationalised F&B outlet co-owned by a radio DJ personnel, as we learnt. But food and taste comes first, and out of the 4 small sides 3 big plates we had there were clear favourites while others came short of being spectacular.

The table’s favourite was the Sakura Pork Ribs, coming in a fancy Chinese claypot, made of earthenware? I’m too amateur to tell. Regardless it housed large ribs with fall off the bone tender meat - good enough that it becomes a sin to have leftovers.
My next favourite would be the Begedil and Karaage. Given that it is difficult to go wrong with fried food, the former was a premium edition with delicious beef stuffing of the potato snack I was introduced to when grabbing lunch with my Muslim colleagues around our office. The latter is a straightforward favourite done well as expected given the price point 😬

Other dishes we had: the “Hangover” Stew and Iberico Red Curry was too salty for my colleagues palate but favor filled for me, instead I was dismayed by the tough Iberico meat- wasn’t this a premium cut that should deliver?

We also had the Madai Coconut Ceviche (which I found hard to appreciate but tasty nonetheless) and the tiger prawn ramen (which was good but a reminder that Izy Fook is not a ramen speciality store which we were a dime of a dozen on our little red dot).
