Bottura

What: A casual Italian restaurant located in a very quiet part of Suntec. Pros: The food is good, fresh and reasonable. I enjoyed my polenta lasagne and Yuka thoroughly enjoyed her tagliolini (the squid ink abomination, above). Also, the wait staff are polite, knowledgeable and helpful. Cons: It’s like on a second floor in Suntec – where NOTHING … More Bottura

Etna

  What: Tiny, classy, Italian joint in the Duxton area. Pros: The food is spot-on. We ordered this antipasti which was this gorgeous burrata, rocket and tomato thing and it made me completely forget I had a fake cheese allergy. My pasta (pictured above) was delicious as well, if a little heavy. Cons: I would not have visited this place … More Etna

Pita and Olives

What: Teeny-tiny Israeli restaurant located in 100 AM mall. Pros: The food is delicious, healthy (ish) and comforting. I felt like we were eating in someone’s home. I also loved their smoky baba ghanoush (top-most, middle, green mush) and kept going back to it for just a little more, just a little more. Cons: The ambiance is … More Pita and Olives

What: Best. Burger. Place. Ever. Okay fine, a restaurant/cafe type establishment situated in a mall that services European tai-tais that serves Very. Good. Burgers. Pros: The burgers – especially the blue cheese, poached pear and walnut burger (I’m literally swooning just typing this) – are so, SO good. Their onion rings served with this curry dip are … More Relish

Lucha Loco

What: Very hip taqueria (restaurant that serves tacos) and garden bar (aka they have outside seating and some potted plants) situated in trendy Duxton, with more pretty people as customers than I could count. Pros: The tacos are so good that I literally wolfed them down before I could take any pictures of them. That’s why the only picture … More Lucha Loco
