There were so many, and I have limited space, so here are the ones I didn’t mention (but I’m sure I’ll be writing about them later on), from (1) Park Hotel Clarke Quay, (2) Fullerton Hotel Singapore, (3) Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore, (4) Sofitel Singapore City Centre, and (5) The Masses.
So if you’re looking to gift a pretty cake, be sure to read TNP tmw, print and/or online. HO HO HO!

It’s just the place to keep returning to because they are always evolving.
I’m not big on lamb, but love the two versions Chef Dylan Ong put out: the char siew version on the regular menu, and the lamb char siew kofta for Christmas.
Both were distinct, and almost equally good. I lean towards the char siew cos I love the amount of sweet and fat, with the mix of meat. And that mint sour cream just ties it up.
I am just craving it now, just thinking about it.

I wish the egg was more runny, and perhaps the prawns be less cooked, but everything else worked.
I prefer Chef Keisuke’s ramen but his magic touch continues. The restaurant is small but packed, as Keisuke restaurants always are.

One of the highlights will be the lobster roll from DB Bistro & Oyster Bar. Half a chunky juicy lobster in a buttery brioche, for $36! Of course not the cheapest on the block but for sure damn good value la!

So thanks Tanuki Raw for giving me that experience!
Other toppings include ikura, truffle sauce, and chinmi chilli for $6 a piece. And between 5pm and 8pm, you can get raw live shucked oysters at $2 each. That’s my sort of happy hour promotion!

Well, the hype was definitely greater than the reality.
The mee rebus wasn’t bad but it wasn’t worth the RM$14 price tag. I found the sauce - for me, the key element of the dish - tepid and uninspired. The special version (RM$19) was marginally better with three big prawns (at room temperature).
I added a nicely spicy sotong bulat (RM$16) and a cold begedil ikan (RM$6), and ordered two teh tarik kosong, which brought my total bill to RM$59. I’ve paid more for breakfast in JB, but, for me, those meals were way more satisfying.

The Small Pig Pudding from Social Place is making a big impact - it’s on every social media post! But how to resist? It is SO CUTE!! And tbh piggy is tasty!

The soup is robust and bursting with oomph, the ingredients were fresh, the bowl was plated with care by the three young men manning the stall.
They are opened 7am to 3pm Monday to Saturday, but by 1pm, the big prawns were already out, so go early!

Both were actually better than expected, though I wish the stuffing for the dumplings had a bit more oomph. And it’s Halal, so it’s a nice place for large gatherings too.

Ordered its Lobster fettuccine and chicken chop.
Both were great value for money (the pasta was $13.50, and the chop was part of a $9.90 set meal).
I was hoping to go down musical memory lane though with ‘90s music. Wouldn’t it be fun to eat a meal while singing along to Spice Girls or Ace of Bass?

You don’t survive nearly a decade in the industry if you’re all gimmick and not substance.
There’s a new menu at Artichoke (here are some of it, clockwise from left Beetroot Borani, Sea Asparagus, Turkish Eggplant, and - my fave of the lot - Hummus & Iraqi Spiced Mushrooms), and these should have people returning for another decade.
I’ll tell you about it in my #WeetsEats column on Thursday.

It’s simple and traditional, with a few great sides, and great when a turkey is too much.
It is available for takeaways from Fudebar at the lobby of the Mercure from Nov 15.
It’s also great to buy a few of these and keep, because it’ll be easy to heat up in case last minute guests appear.

Likes to eat. Hence, fat. IG: @weeteck
