Literally spicing up their quality international buffet spread, JW Marriott’s Beach Road Kitchen is currently running an exciting collaboration with Chef Made Karyasa and his team from Ritz Carlton Bali. The 11-day Indonesian feast, available now till 27 July, features authentic Balinese cuisine. Think an extensive array of sambal chillies like Sambal Matah, Sambal Tomat, Sambal Terasi as well as aromatic Indonesian-style curries with options such as pork turmeric and yellow lamb. The saucy Tum Ayam (Balinese banana leaf-wrapped chicken marinated in lemongrass), flavourful Sup Buntut (oxtail soup) and chunky satay being my favourite items from the Indonesian Specialties line-up. And not forgetting the sweets sections, on display was a sumptuous selection of traditional cakes, and my pick being the Dadar Gulung made fresh and packed with a choice of mango or grated coconut and palm sugar. Cooling down with a bowl of Es Teler (offered on selected days), I really enjoyed the intriguing combination of avocado, coconut, and jackfruit served with drizzles of sweetened condensed milk.

But of course, the highlight for me and actually for most at the table was the grilled meats. Piling on the proteins, the Iberico Pork and Kalbi Ribs were to-die-for especially when you get them right off the grill. Slightly charred on the outside, the meats had a good balance of sweet, savoury and just slightly smoky. There at the live grill station, you can also choose to have fish grilled upon order - pomfret or rainbow trout. So good~ Those who love the bold and full-bodied flavours of Indonesian food should definitely go down to Beach Road Kitchen for this limited time only collaboration!

After pigging out intensively on their various thin-crusted pizzas (psst use Burpple Beyond), DePizza’s Homemade Eggless Custard with Wild Berry Mix & Mango Coulis was simply the thing I needed and the perfect way to round up the meal. Exceedingly silky and lusciously creamy, Panna Cotta DePizza ($8) was light, wonderfully chilled and packed a fun wobble as it was brought to our table. Almost melty, the custard was also well-matched with the vibrant, sweet and tangy sauces. Furthermore, I enjoyed that the fact that the coulis was not satiny smooth, giving the dessert that extra texture.

Thank you DePizza for feeding us and @Burpple for extending the invite!


Still one of my favourite thick cut fries - Supply & Demand's Garlic Truffle Fries.


Having Nasty Cookie’s premium Biscoff Cookie ($4.90), we were recommended to pair it with the Dulce De Leche which was a gooey condensed milk caramel. Of course, there was also a choice of the classic Nutella and marshmallow frosting filling.

Because I will take a soft cookie over a crunchy one on most days; I enjoyed the fact that their rendition came a little cakey. It tasted warm and unmistakingly spiced. Generously loaded with chocolate chips and studded with chunks of shortcrust biscuits, the combination wasn’t sickly sweet in my opinion. I could detect a good dose of saltiness in the dough to balance the flavours and counter the sweetness too.


Perhaps the only kind of bikini I care about, Jam At SIRI HOUSE’s rendition of the classic spanish sandwich was an easy favourite at our table. Finished in mere seconds, the elevated grilled cheese arrived in four delicate triangles, all pipping hot accompanied by a gentle whiff of truffle. At $16, it may be a little hard to swallow but each bite into the stack of cured meats loaded with a delightful trio of gouda, mozzarella and scamorza was simply heavenly. The toasted milk bread also proved to be a satisfying vessel, offering a slight crisp and a buttery note.


Introducing the popular street culture fare and familiar Taiwanese favourites into their well-established international lineup, The Line at Shangri-La Hotel Singapore, welcomes Guest Chef Eddie Liu from Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel in Taipei. So think authentic Braised Taiwanese Pork with Rice, comforting Braised Beef Noodles, crispy Fried Chicken Cutlet, fancy Steamed Glutinous Rice with Crabs and more; available from 2 to 14 July 2019 during dinner, 6pm to 10pm.

What’s more every guest who dines for dinner during this period gets a chance to win one return premium economy ticket to Taipei on EVA Air and two nights’ stay at Shangri-La's Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Taipei in a lucky draw! And the prices for the dinner buffet start from $80++ per pax.


A dish done right, Dee Tongue Thai by Rung Mama’s Pad See Ew Moo ($6) was a fragrant heap that just screamed comfort food. A homely and honest medley of ingredients held together by the smokiness imparted by the hot wok; it is one of the better stir-fried kway teow I have tried. Such greasy goodness. The slippery flat rice noodles was silky-smooth and seasoned well by the savoury sauce, whilst the beansprouts as well as greens offered some crunch to the plate. There were generous pork slices too, all cooked perfectly.


Though the price is quite steep at $5.20/medium and $6.50/large, Jenjudan’s Brown Sugar Boba Milk ranks pretty high on my list. Warm, fragrant and not overly sweet, the signature concoction was on the lighter side and nicely balanced in my opinion. Served with chilled fresh milk, the brown sugar bobas were also more soft than chewy, which is how I prefer them to be.


A break from all the rich foods I have been inhaling of late, JUJU’s vegan frozen dessert bowl was just what I needed ($8.50/ Regular). Hence, with Burpple Beyond, we opted for a vibrant twist of their Dragon and Mango Smoothie Bowls which was on rotation that week. Drizzled with chocolate or a choice of organic peanut butter, each serving came with sliced bananas, blueberries, granola, cacao nibs, mulberries and their house-made chia seed pudding which I was glad to know didn’t contain yogurt (a lovely staff told us that the secret is nut-based milk). Healthy and clean tasting, both flavours had great intensity. The Dragon offering a sweet blend of grapes, watermelon, medjool dates, filtered water and of course red dragonfruit; while the other was a more refreshing mix of mango, passionfruit, apple, lemons as well as dates. Packing on the antioxidants, fibre, vitamins and minerals, the texture was also relatively smooth and thick like most sorbets.


My favourite buy from @dairyandcream to date and possibly the best matcha tart I had tried, “Waffy” from her latest summer menu was simply scrumptious. At $16 for 2 pieces, they were certainly worth every single penny. The French Aop Butter Pate sable was fragrant, slightly crumbly, and had a lovely snap as you cut into it. Filled with Black Sesame Feuilettine at the base and smooth Uji Matcha Ganache, the tart is for the intense matcha lovers. Nutty, earthy and bittersweet. A quality bake, the soft paw-shaped Uji Matcha Bavaroise sitting atop was also divine especially with the surprise Okinawan Black Sugar curd core - wonderful play of texture and flavours.

I might not be a huge fan of mac and cheese in general, but Five Oars Coffee Roasters’ Mentaiko Mac and Cheese ($21.50) had me with the sweet chunks of prawn and crab meat. Seafoody, creamy yet not too cheesy, the blend of flavours from the use of mentaiko, cheddar and parmesan cheese was delightfully decadent. Good for sharing, the bowl also had vibrant ebiko strewn over the lightly charred macaroni, providing an extra omph to the often one-dimensional staple.


Uncle Kiisu’s 1-for-1 Omakase at $98++/$128++ may be the answer.

Not too fancy but sure to impress your plus one, the 5-course menu would be available till end July and comes with a free drink when you use Burpple Beyond. Focusing on the $98++ set, the starter highlights what they do best - Japanese, Western, and Peranakan fusion cuisine. The ramen egg is filled with savoury buah keluak shiitake, topped with poppy tobiko and shiso leaf. The oba leaf offering a surprising punch of grassy fragrance as you sink your teeth into it, which kind of worked with the earthy elements on the spoon.

Next, course 2 delivered something more substantial and you can pick between a choice of seafood or chicken. Having the former, it was essentially a poke style donburi embellished with Atlantic salmon cubes, maguro, wasabi, avocado, mentaiko, tobiko, shredded crab, furikake and chopped spring onion. An easy crowd-pleaser for seafood lovers with the delightful myriad of textures and colours.

A palette cleanser for course 3, their rendition of the Miso Dashi Soup added hua diao wine that gave a nice depth to the already umami concoction.

The showstopper was the Whole Live Boston Lobster Uni Charcoal Cream Ramen with a hunky slab of Wagyu Ribeye MBS 5/6 - literally “Life's intensity on a plate” with the two hearty proteins. The lobster was pretty succulent and fresh-tasting while the ribeye was medium well with a firm-chewy bite. Meant for sharing, the luxe combination saw plump, briny ikura and bits of Japanese pickles. Leaning towards the sweet, the uni brown butter cream base was a little weak in the distinct uni flavour but wasn’t gelat. The noodles itself were decent too. And if you have $28 to spare, I highly recommend upgrading the Wagyu Ribeye to Kagoshima A4 for it really changed the whole experience. Sprinkled with crispy garlic chips, the premium cut was slightly smokey, fatty and simply melts in the mouth.

Thank you @unclekiisu for having us and Burpple for extending the invite!
