Located inside Hotel 1929, Restaurant Ember is well-known for its value-for-money business set lunches – in fact it’s probably the most well-known ‘secret’ now.
What’s really great about Ember is the large variety of choices in the set lunch menu. Each category easily has more than 5 different items to pick from so you can mix and match to try out before settling on your preferred 3-course combination1.
The food was undoubtedly good and when I finished the meal, I was already thinking of what to order the next time I was back. However I never did return, being distracted by another place nearby – which I’ll blog about eventually!
And what I had:
Roasted and poached foie gras with mirin and shoyu, shiitake
Crispy duck leg confit with new potatoes, caramelised onions, thyme jus
Chocolate fondant with vanilla ice-cream
And some mint tea to round off a good lunch!

This small and cosy 18-seater Japanese eatery has been steadily gaining a reputation for having one of the longest reservation lists for a place of its size. Read the rest of this entry »
This is perfect as a simple lunch on a public holiday – a roast chicken!
It is a pity that just when I have the free time to blog about the Wok & Barrel, they have just closed down a month ago, due to manpower issues I believe.
Since young, prawn noodles has always been one of my favourite dishes, with the prawn noodles near Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre being the prawn noodles of my childhood’s memory.
Those in the Japanese dining scene would have probably known of Shinji by now; many food reviews have already been written about it. And most of those reviews, if not all, indicate that the sushi at Shinji is one of the best in Singapore now.
Artichoke has always been a place that I’ve wanted to try since I had a phase where I was quite into Moroccan/Middle Eastern food. Amusingly, I went for the brunch first instead of their dinner because I happened to be nearby on a weekend.
Their brunch menu is quite different from their dinner menu, being small and mostly different from dinner. Most brunch places have a scrambled eggs dish and Artichoke is no exception. It comes with several choices of sides, and one popular one is the sweet glazed bacon chop.
While the scrambled eggs was done decently, I really didn’t like the bacon chop because the one-dimensional sweetness didn’t fit into the rest of the dish and it was boring to eat a large crunchy piece of fat.
Le Cuisson, started by two young chefs who left DB Bistro Moderne, and it follows the model of French restaurant food in kopitiams.
