Kiyoshi Izakaya Japanese Restaurant – Affordable Bento sets available for delivery

[Media Collaboration]

Now that Phase 2 is here and dining-in is acceptable once again, although limited to a maximum of 5 in a group, many of us still plan on eating at home to minimise time spent outside. Recently I had the pleasure of receiving a delivery from Kiyoshi Japanese Restaurant. Of all my food deliveries so far, Kiyoshi’s meal was the most convenient because we had ordered bento boxes so the meal already came nicely laid out in bento box form. So here’s a tip if you want a fuss free delivery meal, order bento boxes, be it Japanese or Chinese. Otherwise, be prepared to unwrap lots of plastic containers or packets!

Launched in May 2020, Kiyoshi prides itself on fresh ingredients prepared using an innovative, contemporary approach. The restaurant specialises in inaniwa udon, Other highlights of Kiyoshi include sashimi, donburi, ramen, yakitori and affordably priced bento sets. We ordered 2 bento sets and 2 sides to try. Their bentos start from $9.90 a set.

The Famous Kitchen – Homely Nanyang cze char dishes available for delivery

[Media Collaboration]

Recently, I had the pleasure of trying out the food at Famous Kitchen. The Famous Kitchen is a casual family restaurant specialising in local seafood creations and traditional Nanyang cuisine inspired by owner, Jeffrey Foo’s travels around China. I have heard good reviews of Famous Kitchen and in fact, I have even tried their sister restaurant Famous Treasures at Capitol, and found the food to be very appetising and value for money. I wanted to visit Famous Kitchen a number of months back, but because they are located in Sembawang, and I live in the East, I did not manage to make it there in the end.

Although we would all wish for COVID to end immediately, I must say one of good things that have come out of this bad situation is that many F&B are now offering island-wide delivery. It gives us the opportunity to try restaurants that are too inconvenient to go to, or boast too long a queue, right in the comfort of our own home.

3. Salted Egg Yolk Prawn with Italian Sauce $27

4. Charcoal Beancurd with Enoki Mushrooms $16

Cicada – An oasis of calm in the middle of Clarke Quay

Clarke Quay can get pretty raucous at night. Pass by during the day and it lets out nary a whimper, but unleashes a monster once twilight approaches. Okay I may exaggerate but it sure can get pretty noisy come nightfall. Due to the sheer number of restaurants and bars in such a compact space, with many boasting live bands, the cacophony is inevitable. But a lot of people love it, hence the packed restaurants and bars.

Cicada at Clarke Quay

But if you are one who can’t tolerate the decibels, modern Asian diner Cicada is an oasis of calm in the heart of Clarke Quay. It is a multi-concept dining and entertainment venue that spans 2 storeys, the 1st floor being an all-day dining bistro with cocktails on tap and late night desserts, while the second floor offers a live mandarin jazz lounge paired with Asian-inspired tapas and a wide selection of alcoholic drinks.
