District 10 @ UE Square

December 7, 2013

0

If you have been frequenting 爱makan, it would be a surprise to finally see a new entry posted after way too long. Do accept my apologies as I have been exploring out of my comfort zone, food and into a couple much diversed and exciting paths for my photography hobby. Then again one should never […]

SouthWest Tavern @ Tradehub 21

April 27, 2013

0

I would proudly exclaim that I am a modest food seeker of the East as I have been staying there all my life. Then again, when asked about the other parts of the island I would normally go dumbfounded. I have absolutely no idea what to recommend. I was lucky to have been invited to […]

Easter 2013 @ Cedele

March 18, 2013

0

Easter Day falls on 31st of March this year and Cedele has taken the opportunity to promote a handful of goodies for the holiday.I can imagine your anxiety before revealing whatever was within. Drum rolls… TaDah! Easter Cake of the Month: Chocolate Spring Cake. I see chocolates everywhere but what exactly does the spring mean? […]

Vday with Pets @ Sun Ray Cafe

February 13, 2013

1

I can’t believe that I’m only a day away from Valentine’s Day and I left this post hanging in mid-air. Chinese New Year drained me thoroughly with the chaotic spring cleaning, visitings, eating and receiving red packets. I was supposed to keep myself away from writing for just a day or two but I went […]

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?” […]

Laksania @ East Coast Road (Halal)

February 1, 2013

1

Do you ever feel the need to devour local delights when you return from a foreign land? Apart from the tension relief when the plane touched down on home grounds, our cuisine tend to deliver the exact soothing effect. Thirsty for a bowl of Singaporean Laksa, Penang Laksa, Sarawak Laksa? You can get everything under […]

Tårta Chokladkrokant @ Ikea

January 15, 2013

AiMakan was on the verge of breaking down from all the festive feasts she had. That should explain why I have been missing in action on my blog. I am back with a whole list of goodies to recommend and they will all be short entries to start getting readers interested with me again. Here […]

Pizza4U @ Sunset Way (Halal)

November 6, 2012

0

Apart from pizza chains like the reputable ‘Hut’, there are numerous solitary joints like Pizza4U which I favour. I totally dig dining in these establishments, the prevailing mood of the environments are usually homely and cozy as shown in the photo below. The outlet is lightly spruced up with contrasted yellow and blue furnishings, nostalgically […]

Nyonya Food Affair @ Buffet Town

October 18, 2012

2

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 […]

Hard Rock Cafe @ Cuscaden Road

September 28, 2012

2

I have been to countless Hard Rock Cafes all around the world but I must confess, it was my first having a real meal in-house. It might have seemed peculiar to you, however their merchandises were much more appealing to me then. The whole rock and roll vibe could be seen all around the restaurant. […]

Bobby’s @ Chijmes

August 25, 2012

4

Most business owners would name their firms after themselves. But not Bobby’s. It was fascinating to learn that the Indonesian Indian partners took up the name after an encounter with a particular friendly policeman (known as Bobbies) in London. This humble establishment already owns two separate outlets, one in Chijmes and the other in Cuppage. […]

Wimbly Lu @ Jalan Riang

July 27, 2012

4

For the past couple of years, if you realised; there are a trillion number of unique cafes blooming around the country. Mostly themed vintage, quirky or just simple rustic-styled. Preferred to be housed in our notably petite nation, a handful of these establishments had managed to settle and flourish in secluded locations. Jalan Riang is […]

Carpenter and Cook @ Lor Kilat

July 14, 2012

5

AiMakan, loves to eat but don’t exactly eat alot. However, on the day MoonBerry and I went for the tasting at Woori-nara we decided to also conveniently swing by this fairly new establishment at Lorong Kilat. Just a few doors away, we sort of ‘rolled’ our way over after a satiated luncheon to this curious-looking […]

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 […]

My Greenwich V-iviacious experience

March 3, 2012

2

Welcome to GreenWich V mall. GreenWich is pronounced as green-nich not Green-Wich, for your information. Like many other recent residential developments, this highly anticipated complex has plenty to offer. As a solitary arcade established within the expanse of Seletar and Jalan Kayu, it was not at all surprising that families would be seen clustering within […]

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 […]

Relish @ myVillage Serangoon Gardens

Tucked away in a corner on the second level of myVillage at the Serangoon Gardens, this fresh associate to the WildRocket team; attempts wholeheartedly to satisfy the stomachs of finicky residents of the area with real comfort food. Settle in for their decent priced set lunches or weekends only all-day brunches and if time permits; […]

Arteastiq @ Mandarin Gallery

June 9, 2011

2

An extented development to the swanky European furniture store; Marxx, Arteastiq Tea Lounge was an idea implanted to allow patrons a place to rest while considering on their purchases. Thoughtful yet a great concept to expand their existing businesses and assets, they are serious about bringing in big bucks, aren’t they? Salute. It is a serenely quiet location, tucked away from the usual pig […]
