Situated within The Working Capitol, entrance to Don Ho is via back alley door (while there, see the snaking queue at Man Man). Stepping into the premise, you'll see tropical-inspired decor, communal tables and an open concept kitchen!
Serving modern Australian cuisine in small sharing portion, they recommend to have three dishes per person! Here we had Split Grilled Tiger Prawn ($14) paired with sweet cocktail, Coco Bongo ($18) and Flower Clams ($16). The latter, cooked in chicken broth and white wine, with bits of iberico has an savoury finish that I wish we ordered more to share.

A delightful sweet drink for the hot Sunday.
Especially when I get to spend time with the soft serve gang in this gorgeous cafe secreted away in Tanglin Mall.
Wind down the hectic week by having a beer or two and pair it off with their Signature Wings ($13 for 6 pieces, $19 for 10 pieces) and Mushroom & Truffle Oil Flatbread ($23.90)
Love the crispy flatbread, which is kinda similar to a pizza. Smothered with garlic mayo and generous serving of mushrooms, the dish is enhance with a dash of truffle oil.
Time to go cafe hopping or drinking with friends~
One of the trendy hangout-spot now as they boast diverse range of restaurants and drinking holes to beauty concepts.
We had the chance to visit Quaich Bar, the first dedicated whisky bar in Singapore! Over 500 labels can be found here and at least 95 percent are Scottish labels, great for collectors to drop by. Alternatively, go for Single Malt Tasting Set (from $45 for 4 tasting portion) to experience the whisky flavours.
What better way to celebrate it by heading to Basilico for a three-course dinner, made-to-order mains with free-flow of Prosecco. Not to mention getting specially crafted treats from Head Chef Luca Beccalli. Do order their oven-baked focaccia with black summer truffle and robiola cheese when you are there! The cheesy pizza with strong truffle is just to die for.
Basilissimo For Her
Every Wednesdays from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm
$98 per lady, with free flow Prosecco
Hidden along the Peranakan shophouses in George Town's famous UNESCO site, it is easy to miss the store unless you are looking for it. This bird nest speciality store incorporates the delicacy into different dishes such as Bird's Nest Jelly (MYR15) or Bird's Nest Coconut Jelly (MYR25).
We went for Bird's Nest Egg Tart, something we can get used to having weekly! Crumble cookie pastry crust filled with moist egg custard and a generous layer of bird's nest. While it might not be comparable to other notable bakeries selling egg tarts, it's still worth a try. After all, their selling point is bird's nest *winks
Definitely, one of the better few I had recently. At least until I'm in Tokyo!
We were slightly disappointed when they presented the dish as it hardly looks appetising due to the brown hues and lack of berries. But oh boy, just goes to prove how wrong we were to judge it by it's "cover".
Soft pillowy cinnamon brioche toast, a layer of raspberry cream cheese, finished off with toasted almonds and honeycomb. The dash of creaminess between each bite combined with sweet maple syrup is just delicious~
one of the many coconut desserts that can be found in the Land of Smiles. Served in a small porcelain bowl, this dessert is made of two layers: sweet custard base with brown sugar and salty creamy top. Coming together, it's a wonderful combination of sweet and saltiness.
