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.

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.

Farmers and Chefs – A truly child-friendly cafe with food from the heart

[Media Invite]

There may be many seemingly child-friendly eateries around in Singapore, but in truth, one that offers a children’s menu featuring healthy food that you would offer at home is a rare gem. Chicken nuggets, fish & chips and spaghetti bolognaise do not maketh a child-friendly cafe, even if the children themselves clamour for that.

At Farmers and Chefs, they take pride in what they serve be it for the children’s menu, or the main menu. Here’s what they abide by the following rules

  • No flavour enhancers
  • No artificial colouring
  • No Deep-frying

The children’s menu features nutritious mini breakfast sandwiches, and mains come with fruit. You can even mix and match items for a customised meal. Things are made from scratch including all sauces. Eg the Farmer’s Soy Mayonnaise is dairy and egg free, and made with soymilk, vinegar and olive oil.

Here’s another thing I have not seen emphasized anywhere so far…..Baby Led Weaning (BLW) is encouraged here! BLW means that the young baby/child is encouraged to feed himself or herself, even if it creates a mess. It will create a mess for sure, and at many other eateries, parents either have to wear a really thick skin or attempt to clean up the mess themselves. You never know when you will get an evil stare from an impatient staff if were to be some other eatery because in Singapore, most people are more familiar with traditional weaning, ie caregivers feeding the child to minimise mess. Some think that parents who practice BLW are trouble makers! I’m personally not really a fan of BLW for certain reasons, but that’s another story for another time. In any case, Edward is fully capable of feeding himself at this age, although he still enjoys being fed!

Farmers and Chefs - Happy Boy playing with Toy Car

There is also a small play area equipped with a table for colouring work and blocks, as well as 2 toy cars. The two toy cars were a huge hit for all the children who saw them. As the cafe. is on the 1st floor, and not air-conditioned, there was ample space for the children to drive the cars around the cafe.

The husband and wife team behind Farmers and Chefs are also the same people behind the LeClare Preschool. The multi-tasking chef is also the same one that the preschool uses. Now you know why the business is so kid-focussed.

Sofitel Singapore City Centre 1864 lobby bar – Elegant afternoon tea with Croiffles!

Media Invite

What is a croiffle did you say? Croiffle or Croffle is a croissant waffle hybrid, and I say whoever created this match made in heaven is a genius. It’s not commonly found in Singapore and indeed, the revamped afternoon tea at Sofitel Singapore City Centre’s 1864 lobby bar was where I tasted this wonderful creation. Think buttery croissant but in the shape of a waffle, so it’s a little bit denser with more bite. And that’s not all, Sofitel 1864’s creation comes topped with Truffle Camembert. The addition of this buttery cheese elevates the croiffle into sheer decadence.

And you can sample this croissant waffle at Sofitel 1864’s revamped afternoon tea. The set comprises the following items:

  • Baked Scone with Rum and Dried Fruits
  • Classic Scone with Clotted Cream and Bonne Maman Marmalade
  • Matcha Azuki Genoise
  • Topinambour and Jivara Chocolate Tart Verrine
  • Mini Croissant Waffle with Truffled Camembert
  • Kueh Pie Tee with Crab Meat and Caviar Creme
  • Baked Frittata with Octopus and Smoked Cayenne Aioli
  • Atlantic Smoked Salmon Sandwich with Fennel Pesto
  • Assorted Praline and Macaron
