I’m mad for the martinis here.
Thanks to resident Mix Master Rosanna, I learned that all the fruit juices used in the drinks at the Martini Bar, come directly from a fruit, not a box. What a difference that makes to how they taste!
Be sure to order the Signature Apple Martini because other than being really strong, it has the unexpected ingredient of truffle paste which works incredibly well with the green apple. You need to try it to believe it.
The other concoction that I would order in multiples without hesitation is the Coconut Martini. Made with fresh coconut water, it is light and wonderfully clean-tasting.
I was also told the Cucumber is one of their bestsellers, and spotted a Soursop Martini being made and swooped away. Am so tempted to give those a go the next time.

The newly-opened Uya at Wheelock Place is on everyone’s lips as “the other unagi place” but they do have items besides eel on their menu. One of them is the Rare Wagyu Rice Bowl that features a mound of buttery-soft beef slices. Surrounded by crisp golden garlic and crowned with a quivering soft (but not onsen) egg, this is a good choice for those who aren’t fans of unagi.

We ordered the lava pizza and cabonara pizza. The lava pizza had a slightly thicker crust than the cabonara, but I must say both pizzas were amazing! The dough was soft and tasty for the lava pizza, and the cheese was soft, creamy and fresh. I really couldn’t ask for anything more and this place was a wonderful find. The server was also very attentive, he kept checking on us to see if the food was okay or if we needed anything else. Definitely 5/5 and will come back!

Loved it. One of my favourite burgers of all times. The smokey bacon + beef patty 🙂 So delicious. Recommended my few friends to try it as well and they say it is nice too. $17.90++

Instead of the usual pork bone broth, this version came in a slow- cooked duck broth with the absence of truffle. I would say the broth is not as rich as flavorful as compared to the truffle shoyu one I had here some time back, suited for those with a lighter palate. Topped with crushed cashew nuts, diced yellow onions, green leaves and bamboo shoots, the ramen also comprised of 2 slices of kamo char siu (poached duck breast), kamo wonton and a flavour egg. The wonton was my favourite element here, comprising of flavourful minced duck meat wrapped in a flimsy, soft handmade wholemeal wheat wonton skin. On the downside, the poached duck breast was tender, meaty but a tad too tough and dry for my liking. Flavoured egg remains an essential for me whenever I m having ramen, with a soft and slightly runny yolk encased within a braised albumin coating. // On a side note, prices seemed to have declined slightly as compared to my visit a year back, with the exclusion of service charge and GST as well . .

The sweet potato tempura was so good - not heavy or greasy at all. I love the efficiency of this restaurant and quality of the fish.

The medium Hitsumabushi (S$35.00) is quite exciting for me, because the menu had actually shared at least three ways of enjoying it. Surprisingly, because of the tastiness of the rice itself, I find that mixing it with Wasabi, seaweed and spring onion suits me the most. Well, mixing it with the Dashi broth is not bad, but it somewhat washed away a bit of that flavour as compared to eating the Unagi and rice on its own. But then, the bowl of soup that is provided tasted quite refreshing for me, so I will suggest to drink that last.

Being a new entrant to the local Unagi scene, Uya’s appeal seems to be really high with a long reservation list. Those who come without a reservation (like me) are just assigned to a communal table, but I guess the situation will improve a bit after a while.


Both unagi's are really good with Uya being slightly smokier and Man Man's being slightly sweeter. While Uya's tare compared to Man man's is runnier, it still has good flavor. Uya doesnt serve fresh wasabi but they make up for it by providing sansho peppers which adds a different dimension to the dish.

Ambience wise, Man Man does feel like those authentic hole in the wall japanese eateries which i love while Uya does have a posher more zen feel. Ultimately though, a huge game changer is that Uya takes reservations, which definitely beats standing outside Man Man in the sweltering heat. •
The polarizing reviews indicate that they're still working out their pre-opening kinks so hopefully they get it fixed soon.

The top layer was caramelised and crispy, adding to the layers of texture in the dish. Compared to Man Man, I feel the eel hardly had any smokiness from the grilling and the sauce feels more watered down, and not as rich. The restaurant was nicely decorated (I loved the communal table) but if my choice of dining location were based solely on the quality of the unadon, I would still go to Man Man to have it. The depth imparted to the unagi by the smoke from grilling over charcoal at Man Man makes all the difference. #burpple #uyasg

Expanding beyond their tiny store in a corner is Kra Pow, which has now taken over 2 units at Far East Plaza.

The hidden gem of this Thai street food store helps to rid your Thai food cravings at pocket friendly prices.

One of my personal favourites is the Drunken Noodle Pork, which is stir fried rice noodles (kway teow), together with basil pork, long beans & chilli padi.

As simple as it sounds, the wok hei flavours are present & adds the extra oomph you need in every mouthful. For chilli lovers, enjoy that spicy punch as well which would either leave you in tears or dripping wet in buckets of perspiration.

For non-chilli lovers, not to worry, you can always ask for non-chilli options, that’s for sure!
