The ever changing dining scene of Tras Street has seen another new opening recently, the few weeks’ old Birders is a Japanese Yakitori and Grills restaurant with a strong focus on dishing out grills from the different parts of a chicken. The long shophouse setting of Birders has a casual and modern vibe, unlike the traditional rowdy and smoky impression we have of Yakitori bars and Izakayas. And hopefully you get to meet the actor-turned entrepreneur behind this restaurant, Adam Chen. [Read more here…]

Song Kee Fishball Noodles
When it closed abruptly last year at its Upper Serangoon Road outlet, it took many by surprise. Indeed, we have to confess that we didn’t even have the chance to visit its previous outlet after hearing the rave reviews from friends. Finally, it has made a comeback last month, and has opened at 128 Tembeling Road in Katong. The best part of the bowl we had is undoubtedly the handmade ‘herh keow’ – make very sure you order more servings of this. [Read more here…]

D9 Cakery at Hilton Singapore launched new Saturday High Tea Buffet
When we found out that Hilton Singapore has launched a new Saturday High Tea at D9 Cakery, we didn’t harbour high expectations. We were glad the experience turned out to be quite overwhelming. At S$41++ per person, we concluded that this must be one of the most value for money high tea in Singapore at the moment. There is a good mix of savoury and sweet treats (we’ll get to that shortly), in addition to the unlimited servings of TWG Tea selections (there are ten flavours available such as Darjeeling, Chamomile and Earl Grey) or coffee options.
