Poultry when cooked and executed well, I think becomes the best tasting protein and such is the case with Spago’s brioche stuffed Australian quail.

This dish doesn’t have a strong gamy taste but instead is packed full of flavour due to the coating of finely chopped pistachio gremolata. The quail is ever so tender and juicy, and sits atop a bed of smooth fennel purée together with a Swiss chard and caramelised Comice pear slices.

This dish is available as a main on Spago’s Express Prix Fixe 3-course lunch menu at $45++.


So wonderful that I literally shed a tear.

This is a dish to remember and will always be talked about. The handmade agnolotti with sweet corn, to put it crudely, is orgasmic. One bite into these fluffy pillows and you’ll taste the beautiful piping-hot but delicate amalgamation of Japanese sweet corn purée and soft mascarpone. It’s really hard to explain the experience but I just say you MUST have it if it’s in season. #burpproved

What a lovely combo. Bacon and beer! Oh, Bacon! by Hong Kong Black Kite Brewery ( is a smokey malt with bacony goodness from nose to finish. 5.4% ABV... perfect for breakfast. Only at Beerfest Asia!


DID YOU KNOW that there are seven Starbucks Reserve stores in Singapore?

Each of these stores offer an exclusive range of coffees that are considered Starbucks' premium and rarest beans. They also perform various techniques to brew your coffee such as chemex, pour over, or using a Clover machine.

However, exclusively at its MBS outlet, the Coffee Masters do siphoning! Not only is it visually captivating but this method has its advantages. Without all the science, the upper chamber allows the coffee to brew at the ideal temperature of 96 degrees Celsius so it doesn't have that burnt taste yet it extracts all the flavour from the grinds.

The MBS Store officially opens tomorrow so go down and get a cuppa siphoned @Starbucks coffee! Thank you @starbuckssg for the warm hospitality and @Burpple for the invite!
