Dinner at Tetsuya Wakuda’s fairly new venture “Waku Ghin” in Singapore. There are two seatings per night and the first must have been running late as there was a 10-15 minute wait at the bar. The restaurant is divided into a series of rooms each with seats at a counter and large teppan. The majority [...]

Lunch at the Cantonese restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Central, Hong Kong. This restaurant was highly recommended on various forums/blogs and it was indeed very good, but also relatively expensive. We arrived slightly early and were invited to wait at the bar outside. The bar has a great view of the harbour from [...]
Lunch at Robuchon a Galera in the Hotel Lisboa, Macau. The food was outrageously good. The presence of gold leaf on almost everything was pointless but didn’t detract from the meal. Loved that the wine list comes either as a massive leather bound 300+ page tome or on a somewhat more modern ipad with searchable [...]
Dinner at the Cantonese 2 Michelin star restaurant at the Hotel Lisboa in Macau. This was an interesting meal, with a couple of dishes that I struggled a bit with, but overall I liked it and I think I can see why it is well regarded. Lighting for photos was not super either, so they [...]
We made a last minute booking for the pre-theatre dinner (starting from 6-7pm) at Guy Savoy in Singapore. We arrived right at 6 and they were still getting the restaurant ready for the evening, we sat for around 10-15 minutes in the loungue area and the staff brought us some small bites while we waited. [...]
Lunch at the Cantonese 3 Michelin star restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel in Central, Hong Kong. Overall it was very good, the setting was very nice with lots of natural light and a view of the harbour, the service started badly but recovered well (see below) and overall the food was excellent. Cuisine: Cantonese [...]
looks rather delicious! that would have been a great experience. dayle
We had dinner at this 2 Michelin star restaurant in the Langham Place Hotel in Mong Kok. I really thought this was excellent with a mix of exceptional dishes and great service. Lived up to the Michelin rating. Cuisine: Cantonese Service: Great, very friendly and no problems at any point. Food: Roasted crispy pork w/ [...]
We visited here for dinner based on some research showing it to be one of the better known places for Typhoon Shelter Crab – Singapore Chilli Crab is one of my favourite foods, so I was looking forward to trying this as a totally different take on a spicy crab dish. There are 3 restaurants [...]
Lunch at this 1 Michelin star restaurant. It was full when we arrived towards the end of lunch but they found us a table after 10 minutes at the bar. Cuisine: Shanghainese Service: Efficient and impersonal Food: For the most part very good; Shanghainese Spring rolls – simple but executed well. Pastry was crispy and [...]
Now i'm hungry ..
During our brief trip to Singapore there was limited time but we managed to try three very different styles of Singapore Chilli Crab at some of the better known chains. Prices at all 3 were SG$45/AU$35 per kilogram plus tax and service charge (10% & 7%) Palm Beach Seafood at One Fullerton – This was [...]
