Four Seasons Hotel’s One-Ninety Restaurant reopens after botanical-inspired transformation

The modern Asian brasserie One-Ninety Restaurant  at Four Seasons Hotel is now open after a botanical-inspired makeover. This heritage-botanical theme is in line with the theme used by the the recently renovated hotel rooms and suites. If One-Ninety Restaurant previously struck you as cavernous and aloof, it now exudes a much more inviting and friendly vibe, yet still retaining its classy nature.

Four Seasons One Ninety Restaurant

The revamped restaurant now serving Provençal cuisine with an Asian twist,  also boasts a newly minted Restaurant Chef Kamarl John, who previously worked at Four Seasons London (I’ll be visiting in just a few day’s time!!) as well as at Adrift at MBS.

Signature dishes here include the Seasonal Seafood Tower for Two, the Chargrilled 1.2kg Forty Days Aged Rib Chop MBS 6 and the Iberico Pork Presa & Collar. Even the complimentary bread showcases Chef Kamarl’s creative craftsmanship as the Artisan Sourdough bread is made from flour sourced from artisanal mills in Hokkaiddo, ground by hand and blended to his specification, and the loaves baked fresh daily at One-Ninety.

Jewel Changi Airport Cafes (Full list)

Have you been to see Jewel Changi Airport yet? I must say this building is pretty amazing and has literally been the talk of the town and on everyone’s Instagram feeds in the past few days. Don’t worry if you didn’t manage to get the preview tickets, because Jewel opens officially to the public on 17 April 2019. Also, don’t be too afraid of the crowd. Yes, it is crowded but Jewel is SO HUMONGOUS, it’s easy to find spaces where there isn’t a crowd.

There is still space to find a seat at most cafes and restaurants because firstly there are so many, more than 280 F&B outlets, and secondly, most people are there to just take in the sights and of course get that perfect shot of the mesmerising HSBC Rain Vortex. Don’t you call it a fountain or even a waterfall because those words do not accurately describe its scale and magnificence. This is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall at 40m so give it its due respect and call it the Rain Vortex.

The only place where I thought it was truly crowded without an empty seat in sight was the lower two basement floors housing most of the casual eateries. But there are many other F&B’s dotted around Jewel’s upper levels, cafes and casual eateries included, so if you want to skip the queue, you know where to go.

Here’s a list of all the cafes available at Jewel Changi Airport. Glad to report there are quite a few new to Singapore names.

New and unique dim sum dishes only for a short time at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel Wan Hao Restaurant

[Media Invite]

Hands up those who looooove dim sum???? I did a poll recently and most people voted that dim sum is good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I certainly could eat dim sum at any time of the day. But the thing is, most places these days stick to the tried and tested dim sum dishes, so it is quite exciting to be able to find something new when it comes to dim sum.

For a short time only, April to be exact, Wan Hao Restaurant at Marriot Hotel will be offering up some unique dim sum creations that are worth checking out.

Revamped Raintree Cove at East Coast Park is now open! (Remember the old Burger King?)

Do you still remember the area where the old Burger King and Long Beach Seafood Restaurant was? That place, also known as Raintree Cove has recently gotten a complete makeover and is now entirely transformed! No more buildings at Raintree Cove, now it is a quiet little haven for people to stroll about, gather, sit on swings or simply chill under the stars! If you’re wondering where to eat at East Coast Park now, click on the link.

Revamped Raintree Cove at East Coast Park (5)

Don’t mind Papa’s expression. Perhaps the swing is going too fast for him??

We had a lot of fun playing at the swings area. Thanks to this swing net thingy or what you might call it, the 3 of us even managed to get a family shot together! The adults might even have more fun here. I saw a mother of 4 children screaming and laughing hysterically as her husband tried to swing her higher and higher!

Sakura Afternoon Tea at Conrad Centennial Singapore Lobby Lounge

[Media Invite]

If you have been following my blog, you will know that one of my favourite past-times is enjoying a spot of afternoon tea. I love the whole idea behind it, from the exquisite nibbles, the various teas to choose from, the posh and dainty settings, and the idea of quiet relaxation and good conversation as time stops still, even if just for a couple of hours. But I do know that a dainty afternoon tea is not everyone’s cup of tea. Those who like to have their meats and seafood will be wondering at all the small bites.

Conrad Sakura Afternoon Tea

The good news is that Conrad Centennial Hotel has come up with an afternoon tea set that will please all parties. From 1 March 2019 to 12 May 2019, the Sakura Afternoon Tea menu will be available at the Conrad Lobby Lounge. As the name suggests, the dainty sakura has been incorporated into the sweet treats presented in the afternoon tea menu. However, if you dine on the weekend, the afternoon tea set also comes with a seafood platter and and a cheese platter. The seafood platter especially should please those with bigger appetites. Now the dainty eaters can dine with the voracious eaters without any bad feelings. (You know I hesitate to use the word ladies and men, or wives and husbands because I don’t want to generalise, but you know who I’m referring to right.)

And a very huge plus point for afternoon tea lovers is that you can have unlimited servings of tea and coffee. What this means is that you can try the various tea flavours and coffee brews without limitation. Most hotels nowadays limit you to just 2 teas/coffees per person, and I have even encountered hotels that do not even offer a second pot of tea, aside from hot water top ups. In reality though, it’s very difficult to drink more than 3 types of tea, because that means 3 pots of tea, or coffee for that matter, but I certainly appreciate the option of being able to switch if I want to. Quite a good selection of Ronnefeldt teas too, several choices per type of tea ranging from black tea to Chinese teas and even herbal infusions. The Sakura Afternoon Tea set also comes with a flute of Faive Rose Wine from House of Nino Franco per person, which I wish was refillable!
