Restaurant JAG– Let this Michelin-starred restaurant surprise you

I recently had the privilege to try out the Restaurant JAG, which is helmed by Jeremy Gillon, located along Duxton Road. Since opening its doors on October 2018, it has within that short span of time managed to snag an impressive number of awards including T Top 20 2019/2020 Singapore Tatler Wine & Dine Singapore’s Top Restaurants 2019/2020 and most notably a One Michelin Star in 2019.

At Restaurant JAG, more than 40 naturally foraged in the wild herbs from the Savoie region of France are the highlight of the menu. They have pride of place along the kitchen wall where they are never out of sight from the chefs. These herbs feature in every single dish, but in a creative and beautiful way. A limited ala-carte menu is available, however diners are encouraged to opt for Chef’s omakase menu, which will feature the freshest seasonal ingredients in dishes specially designed to highlight the distinctive trait of used herbs. Should you have any dietary restrictions, there is no need to inform days in advance, it can be done upon arrival, thanks to the cooking techniques employed and the way the menu is curated.

What to eat at Millenia Walk during Chinese New Year

One of the perks of running this blog and being in the social media scene is that sometimes you get to do fun things that won’t actually happen in real life. Like for example, partake in a Chinese New Year feast in the Great Hall of Millenia Walk, while curious shoppers and passers-by wonder what we’re up to. Did you know Millenia Walk has a Great Hall? Sounds like some cavernous place in a fairytale castle (okay I’m thinking more of Harry Potter) but actually I’m sure you’ve been there because it’s just the huge space in the center of Millenia Walk. I’ll let you in on a secret, I’ve been looking forward to this Chinese New Year lunch! It’s a fun and celebratory affair, and also because it is a reunion of sorts for all those in the media.

While you won’t have the chance to toss yu sheng in the Great Hall of Millenia Walk, you can most definitely sample all these Chinese New Year dishes being rolled out by the various F&B establishments in the mall. Scroll down for more photos. Also add me on Instagram so that you can get on the spot 1st hand pictures and videos of all the events that I attend.

Famous Treasure – CNY dishes + Yu Sheng that requires no tossing!

Here’s a restaurant that is right smack in town but yet may be flying under the radar due to its second floor location at the quiet Capitol Building just opposite the bustling Raffles City Shopping Centre. Nevertheless, it’s a restaurant I want to recommend because the food served here is good! I was here last week to sample their Chinese New Year 2020 offerings and I was impressed. Scroll down further to read more.

Ritz Carlton Chihuly Lounge Festive Afternoon Tea

I know Christmas is over but I wanted to share with you all our wonderful Christmas Festive Afternoon Tea at Ritz Carlton Chihuly lounge. This is my second year running having the festive Afternoon Tea here. It can be expensive to eat out for Christmas but yet you feel like you deserve to indulge a little bit given that it’s Christmas. My usual practice come December is to go for a festive afternoon tea. That way, not only can I enjoy the festive atmosphere and decorations, the bill is still somewhat manageable. I’ve always liked the afternoon tea offered by Chihuly Lounge.

Chinese New Year 2020 : Best restaurants to go for great Yu Sheng

Now that the Christmas festivities are over, it’s time to change direction and start planning for Chinese New Year. And when it comes to all things Chinese, bigger is better! So here’s a list of where to go for the most decadent and luxurious Yu Sheng you can find in Singapore for your reunion dinners / lohei to help you HUAT BIG in the year of the Metal Rat!

Interestingly, unlike in previous years, not many restaurants are featuring the rat image in their Yu Sheng creations. Perhaps the rat does not lend itself well to being recreated in Yu Sheng form, unlike say a horse, a monkey or even the pig. However, if you scroll down, you will see that Fullerton Hotel has done a pretty nice rat version. Do you know of any other Rat Yu Shengs out there? Head on over to my Instagram Stories to vote if you’d like to have a depiction of the Rat in your Yu Sheng. After all, the Rat IS part of the Chinese Zodiac.
