Spring Promotion @ Sushi Tei

May 24, 2013

1

Tell me you are unaware of this restaurant chain and you will get a slap on the head from me. Come on, it’s Sushi Tei for goodness sake. There shall be no introduction for this post as it will be awfully awkward if I were to do so, it ought to be a ‘household’ brand […]

Dolce Tokyo @ 313

May 8, 2013

0

Dolce means ‘sweet’ in Italian and you would have guessed what this cafe serves. The Japanese-Italian fusion concept brand is the latest addition to the distinguished Ministry of Food group. Residing in a cozy corner on the 3rd level of the mall, the eatery holds a rather obliging seating arrangement. The intended interior embellishments were […]

Special Spring Selections @ Tampopo

March 30, 2013

0

Exclaim that you cannot imagine how it is possible that poor AiMakan has never been to Japan. Do fuss in disbelief and urge me to go! Despite that, I am contented with the options my country offers. Well, for the time being at least. Tampopo should not be foreign to most Japanese cuisine lovers. This […]

Danro HotPot @ NEX

February 28, 2013

0

What is a must-have during Chinese New Year? I am talking about food here before you start mentioning about Ang Baos or new clothes. Apart from Bak kua, mandarin oranges and festive goodies including pineapple tarts, which other one fare is irreplaceable during the eve of the holiday due to its noteworthy significance? Nabe, HOTPOT. […]

[Giveaway ended] Nana’s Green Tea @ The Atrium

February 19, 2013

27

Plaza Singapura is undergoing a revamp and has extended its vicinity naming it, The Atrium @ Orchard. If you have dropped by the mall since late last year, you would have observed a major transformation of tenants who have settled in. Nana’s Green Tea happened to be one of the pioneers which include Chef Wan’s […]

Prosperity CNY Feast @ Plaza Brasserie

February 7, 2013

0

Being a single and mid-twenties is a bore during Chinese New Year. The festive season was supposed to be all about collecting Ang Baos and getting the opportunity to stock up on clothes for the year. But as age starts to catch up, most relatives would ask the ultimate questions, “Do you have a boyfriend?” […]

Kyushu Gourmet Experience @ Japanese Dining SUN

December 10, 2012

1

The next place I am eager to fly to is Japan. Believe it or not, I have never been to the country even when I am a major fanatic for their cuisines. Kyushu is the third largest island in Japan and call me KuKu (ignorant) or something but I did not manage to recognise the […]

Kiseki @ Orchard Central

November 23, 2012

This is the only entry I had deliberately kept back from publishing for three whole months. I am guilty for keeping it on hold for too long but I do have a valid reason for it. I loved this place so much that I wanted to keep mum about it. After realising how many people […]

Kohii cafe @ 1 Shenton Way [CLOSED]

November 21, 2012

0

With multifarious cafes specialising in coffees popping out of nowhere in recent months, a year old Kohii stands out from the pack with their Japanese blends. The decision of residing within the CBD area would definitely need lots of courage and after much thoughts. The crowd comes in at lunchtime and it gets quiet at […]

Nyonya Food Affair @ Buffet Town

October 18, 2012

I have been piling on the pounds lately. You should be able to understand why if you have been actively following me on Instagram (@aimakan), where I showcase almost instant depictions of my meals.September had been a hectic month for me; attending tastings, working as usual but most importantly, celebrating my Birthday with so many […]

The Square @ Novotel Hotel

July 5, 2012

8

What makes a good buffet truly memorable? A wholesome spread or an intriguing variation to certain dishes offered probably. I would personally be bowled over by the latter if there’s an existence of a wow factor. Novotel Hotel’s very own contemporary buffet restaurant, the Square serves a pleasant feast of international cuisines. The natty environment […]

E.Clat @ Sultan Link

June 24, 2012

1

Daniel from Daniel’s food diary was kind enough to let me tag along on one of his food invites to this recently launched ‘canteen’. There was no signboard, or at least at the time when we were there. Let’s just hope they have finally put one up else, it would be a chore looking for […]

Juchheim’s Baumkuchen @ Takashimaya

October 5, 2011

5

Baumkuchen is a German/Japanese version of the Indonesian layered cake, Kueh Lapis. The characteristic rings that appear when sliced resemble tree rings. Thus given the German name, Baumkuchen; which literally translates to “tree cake” or “log cake”. Unlike its Asian counterpart, the Baumkuchen is baked on a rotating rod instead. The skillful confectioner scoops and […]

Haato & Co. @ the Central

September 1, 2011

My Makan kaki and I were strolling down Clark Quay after an indulging dinner, when we chanced upon a train of people before a particular parlour. Having had Haato from both Liang Court and Thomson Plaza, I was disinclined to leave until I get my dose of their low fat treats. Haato & Co., with […]

Standing Sushi Bar @ Queen st.

July 26, 2011

0

Born and bred in a family with distinctive taste-buds, scouting for palatable Japanese cuisine has always been my auxiliary calling. Having a gang of piggish peers doesn’t help, more work instead. I have been eyeing at a particular vicinity for quite sometime now, 8QSAM (8 Queen street, Singapore Arts Museum) which houses a couple of […]

[Click on this copyrighted picture for link to MyVillage website] Eyes back here, if you would please. It is rude to ogle, unless you are admiring the handsome twin Mascots of myVillage @ Serangoon Gardens. How adorable~ MyVillage is now standing on the site where the Paramount building/the succeeding Serangoon Gardens village once occupy. It […]
