London: Brasserie Zédel

This is the second post in the overseas trip series to Iceland and London.

The fun thing about being and living in London is the ability to watch a musical / play at any time and at really affordable prices as well. One of things I really want to do while in London was watch as many plays as I could find the time to and afford as well. Continue reading

Gunther’s Modern French Cuisine

I’ve always wanted to try Gunther’s. Like seriously. For two years, I tried to come here for my birthday (since it is quite a pricey restaurant, I felt that a special occasion was needed to justify the visit) but things just never worked out. By circumstance, M brought me here for lunch just last week and I finally got to cross this off my list of restaurants to try.  Continue reading

Tokyo: L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon

This is the sixth post on my eating adventures to Tokyo. All other posts can be found here

This was probably one of the easiest reservations for me to make, simply because it had an online reservation system in English. I had been meaning to have a taste of the genius that Joël Robuchon is for a very long time. However, the restaurant in Singapore is really expensive. Hence, when I found out how affordable the lunch menu at Joël Robuchon Tokyo was, I jumped at the opportunity. It was also a plus that the Tokyo restaurant has been awarded two michelin stars.

Saveur

Conveniently located near my school so that I could have a “quick dinner” with my folks and run back to the library for more studying since at that point I still had two papers to go and they were back to back papers. A quick perusal of the food blogs on Saveur reveal that its main lure is the relatively very affordable prices for french cuisine. However, a quick note that prices stated in the older reviews have since gone up by about $2-$3 when I ate there last weekend. Damn inflation and rising food prices. There was quite a queue when I arrived, but they have the sms queuing system where you just type in your number and the restaurant will call you when a table is ready. There is also an online website for you to check how far along are you in the queue Continue reading

db Bistro Moderne

Back again at MBS, but this time for a different reason because of Laneway Festival! (A quick post on that later). J suggested that we try Daniel Boulud’s bistro for lunch and so we went. This was not my first time at DB, I had celebrated my birthday there two years ago and I had a great time there. If one were to mention DB, one always gushes about their burger in which the patties are made out of braised short ribs and foie gras. Having tried that already, I was keen to see what else the restaurant had to offer besides what was already tried, tested and famous. Continue reading
