10 great cafes in Singapore’s parks to catch Pokemon Go

I never thought I’d say this but out of sheer curiosity, I’ve jumped onto the Pokemon Go bandwagon just to see what it’s all about! A week ago, I had barely a clue what Pokemon was, and now I’m itching to spend some real money because I’ve run out of Pokeballs and there are no Pokestops near my place!

Anyway for those of you with time to spare, you might just want to check out these 10 cafes located in some of Singapore’s beloved parks. Park yourself (pun intended) in a nice spot within the cafe and catch ‘em all! Actually, even if you’re not into Pokemon Go, these are great cafes to chill out and enjoy Singapore’s lush greenery and outdoors. Smile

WOK°15–Great Chinese food with a marina view!

WOK˚15 Kitchen - Chilli Crab $55 per kg (1)

If you’re looking for a good Chinese/Cantonese restaurant with a view, you might just want to put the five month old WOK°15 at ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove on your radar. Helmed by Executive Chef Chum Kar Ho, WOK°15 aims to serve exquisite Cantonese dishes such as seafood and dim sum dishes in an artful presentation. Wong Ah Yoke from the Straits Times had given WOK°15 the thumbs up, so I was quite keen to pay this restaurant a visit despite it not being so close to my home.

Thankfully, and thoughtfully, all diners to WOK°15 get free entry into Sentosa as well as free parking at ONE°15, so make sure you ask for the entry letter into Sentosa when you’re making your reservation.

5 things you must try at the new Japan Food Town, Wisma Atria

Japan Food Town

If you’re in the Orchard area and not sure what to have for dinner again, you simply have to check out the newly opened Japan Food Town located on the 4th floor of Wisma Atria. Aptly named, once you step into Japan Food Town, its as if you are leaving Singapore behind and stepping into a little piece of authentic Japan. The 20,075 sqft space exudes a modern Japanese feel, with Japanese elements such as unvarnished wooden lattice, black clay walls and cutlery decorating the space.

Japan Food Town comprises 16 outlets featuring a vast selection of Japanese delicacies. All 16 tenants will procure more than 50% of their ingredients directly from Japan fresh, in some cases on a daily basis, as part of the collaboration with the Japan Association of Overseas Promotion for Food and Restaurants (JAOF). Bulk procurement will reduce shipping expenses, thus keeping the menu at Japan food Town at an affordable range.

I had the pleasure of sampling some of the 16 restaurants at Japan Food Town, but really, I only skimmed the surface and it would take me numerous visits to really experience all the restaurants, and I can’t wait to go back again!

But here’s a quick list on 5 dishes you must try at the Japan Food Town!

McDonald’s at East Coast Park Marine Cove opens again!

By now, you might have heard of the news that McDonalds has reopened again at East Coast Park after a 4 year hiatus. Although there is no more drive-through, the McDonalds is now brighter and airier looking thanks to the lofty roof and bright yellow hues all around. And boy is it modern looking too, with the salad bar and dessert bar. I had the opportunity to check it out on their grand opening on 2nd July. It was packed to the gills!!! There was even a lion dance performance at the auspicious hour of 3.38 pm to commemorate the opening! One of those lions spat a lettuce onto my head so I’m going to have to buy Toto soon.

You have to check out the new East Coast Park McDonalds. They have some stuff here that isn’t available at other outlets, eg the salad bar! Who would have thought that the day would come when we would see a salad bar in McDonalds. And did I mention that this outlet is perfect for spending the entire day? They have free Singtel Wifi, electrical sockets and air charge to charge your handphones!

999.99 (Five Nines) – Best beef tenderloin and lamb chops

It’s not often that I come across a restaurant with this many laudable dishes, but yes, nearly every single thing that I tried at 999.99 (Five Nines) at Keong Saik street was delicious and memorable. What sort of weird name is Five Nines, you may ask. Well, 999.99 is the finest form of gold and is considered the gold standard. The team at 999.99 holds themselves to this gold standard in the food that they serve, be it quality, service or presentation. Five Nines is helmed by Chef Masanao Saito, where his previous experience included being Head Chef of the Japanese Embassy in Sweden, serving Japanese Kaiseki and French cuisine to dignitaries.

Let’s cut to the chase and let me tell you which dishes to order to maximise your dollar. Without a doubt, do not leave Five Nines without ordering either the Smoky Lamb with Eggplant, the Beef Tenderloin and Foie Gras, or the Lobster Gratin. These 3 were absolutely mind blowing.
