Good places to meet up for the vibes and dine

Mad for garlic earned many ticks for my friends and I as we celebrated Christmas - their signature garlic snowing pizza, their risottos and eyebrows were also raised as we try their Tomyum garlic pizza. (The garlic snow pizza and risottos are the must try)

Would say it's a lil unusual but good to spice things up a lil sometimes


with our favourite chinese food and with a view of our beautiful bay.

Had the baby abalone meesua ($30), pre-ordered claypot chicken rice ($32), and garoupa with garlic and vermicelli ($38, not in pic)

The baby abalone is chewy though the meesua is as usual. Enjoyed eating the claypot chicken rice with its mild ginger taste, tender chicken, and consistently crispy rice bits (!!). Do note that there's only 4 portions of the claypot rice, which has to be reserved in advanced. I am lucky that its still available even though I only called in 3 hours in advance.

The garoupa also captured my favourite taste of garlic in soy sauce.

For $136 including some dimsum and tea, it makes for a good meal amongst 4 people!

Felt like a magical garden party, with fairy lights that come to life at night. Its international buffet spread was perfect for me and my team, with us hitting the live seafood corner (with live prawn catching! which i didnt dare) and good cuts of meat - steaks!! Beef rolls!! Everything. The fried food section covered all grounds too - i love the cheese baked pasta best.

Most memorably, they also serve a cheese grilled lobster to each of us. While cold, the flavours were lip smacking good.

Slightly ulu, may need to cab. Also, didnt realise there is indeed some resident peacocks around.

($38++ for dinner)

Love the al fresco dining here, amidst all the cbd people traffic. This is definitely a very value for money burpple deal, where we got the steak for a steal ($30). The cut is less fatty and slightly more tough, but the mix with truffle mash is irresistible. Not sure what sauce it was, but does give a salty punch.

Dining barefoot got us in a comfy mood, and i feel so connected to the earth as we settled ourselves on their floor cushions, the zen music, while getting taunted by the smells of the food. We got the set that includes a creamy-rich butter chicken, fish curry, dhal, spinach and potatoes, garlic naan, chicken 65, sheek kebab - accompanied by its unique salted mint lassi. While servings run a lil smaller, it gives you room to eat more.

I completely wiped the butter chicken sauce clean, its that goood. First time feasting in lil india!

Coming here after a game of futsal has become the ritual: chilling by the river with burger, pizza and beers got to be one of the best way to reward yourself after a game.

Tried the bistro burger that comes with blue cheese, which gives a surprisingly strong kick. The fluffy bun soaks up the essence of the just-right patty ($25 for Bistro Burger)

Ps. This place has entertainer deals!

Had the fortune to be treated to a meal here, and we had the peking duck wraps. The crispy skin was paper thin and not at all fatty - and the meat is lean as well. The staff will then skillfully slice the duck and prepare these peking duck wraps. Loved the juicy mix together with some cucumbers, savoury sauce and sugar.

A great treat to end off a very fruitful month! The duck has to be preordered ($90)

Feasting here at friday evening has a different tone to it, the chimes from the mosque nearby amidst a golden sunset glow, together with grill platter of meats and rounds of beers. The grilled lamb kofta is my favourite - crisp with its flavours brought out, together with the fragrant minced chicken sausage. The grilled chicken chunks was on the drier side. We loved the grilled haloumi, hummus, falefel

This feast is on the pricier end (~$75). Enjoyed this middle eastern cuisine and will love to find slightly cheaper alternatives too

The paella is on the fishy end, and it is unusual that they have such chunky pieces of chickens. This didnt meet my expectations for the usual paella, although the squid and prawns are tender and fresh. The wines definitely made up for it.

&sons is my go-to place for authentic Italian cuisine that has a rustic touch to it. Had the Tagliatelle with duck ragu & foei gras ($26) and the tagliatelle's handmade freshness is particularly distinct. While the pasta didn't wow us, especially with the less than expected roasted foei gras, it's still a homely dish we enjoyed.


Had to come back here for x'mas and both the food & vibes checked our boxes! We were raving over the golden prawns quesadillas and the baja fish. The quesadillas had the perfect golden crust of cheese that is irresistible. The sour cream & avocado went so well with the cheese. The baja fish was also so meaty and very fresh!!! Deep fried for its crispiness and still tender inside. It's an explosion of flavours here.

The kimchi carnitas fries is like a treasure trove of generous ingredients: fries, pulled pork, kimchi, cheese, topped with sour cream and some Mexican sauce! A must order for sharing

PS. Isn't MexiKo better than Komex :b

Many many thanks to Burpple and Vatos for first introducing me to this unique fusion tacos during Burpple's first birthday:)

Had the crab noodles for $35 because of their promo! The crab is fleshy and fresh for sure, though the addition of it + gingers changed the taste of the noodles, where we all preferred the original. Still, it's very value for money and the noodles here never disappoints :-)
