Josh’s Grill – Affordable and generous portioned Western food in the heart of Bugis Junction

I like going to Bugis Junction due to its convenient location and numerous shops, but unfortunately it’s never been a place I associate with good and affordable food. Glad to report that I’ve since discovered a new and affordable restaurant to recommend everyone, called Josh’s Grill. The price point is really attractive for a restaurant. For example, chicken dishes are $10.90 and pasta dishes start from $9.90 up to $14.90. They are even cheaper than Swensens next door, which a lot of families like to go to for their relatively affordable pricing.

But what makes Josh’s Grill even more value-for-money is that the mains all comes with your choice of two sides. This concept is not uncommon in Singapore. For example Buddy Hoagies, Astons and Kenny Rogers boast such a concept where you get to choose from a range of sides. What makes Josh’s Grill stand out is their variety of side dishes. Take for example the Mala veggies. I’ve never seen a Western restaurant offer this as a side dish, and now I’m wondering why the hell not?

Senso’s revamped Sunday Prosecco Brunch

[Media Invite]

Hands up those of you who would love luxuriating in a long Sunday brunch complete with free-flow bubbly? I would too, but such affairs are usually in excess of $100 especially if you are talking about hotel buffets. Here’s a place that comes in at just under $100++ ($98++), not much cheaper but every little bit helps right? The price must be alright because it was completely full indoors when I was there.

Check out Senso Ristorante & Bar, whose Sunday Prosecco Brunch includes a buffet spread of antipasti (such as Normandy Oysters, Prawns, Italian Cold Cuts) and desserts. There are also a few mains to choose from, with no limit on the number of orders. There is also a live station every week, ranging from a Raclette Cheese station to a Roast Beef carving station.

So why Senso? If you want a Prosecco Brunch with a strong focus on Italian food, this is the place to be. They have a huge selection of Italian antipasti such as cold cuts, carpaccio, caprese and lots more. The ambience is also very nice as the restaurant is housed in a cosy heritage shop house. In fact this unique location is one of the reasons Senso has been on my radar for so many years.

River Wok at Robertson Quay–Surprisingly good IndoChina food in a predominantly Western food enclave

Who knew that one would be able to find a restaurant focussing on food from Indochina in the heart of Robertson Quay, and a very good one at that? Newly opened River Wok offers flavours from countries like Laos, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. The menu is a reflection of Executive Chef Kantha Chookiat’s travels and extensive cooking experience in the region. Chef Chookiat grew up in Chiang Mai, Thailand and has over 30 years of culinary experience.
