Cure, Keong Saik: Restaurant of the Year, In Love with Andrew Walsh, Esquina’s Ex Chef

Formerly from Esquina, Andrew Walsh opens his own new restaurant, Cure at Keong Saik. The testimony of Walsh’s prowess is how he made me like the food despite my prejudice in the pairings. No gimmicks, no hipster concept, just good food.


Cze Char Craze: Beng Tin Hng Restaurant (Yishun); Cafe de Hong Kong (Balestier); Golden Spoon (Tiong Bahru); Kok Sen (Keong Saik); Lai Huat Sambal Balacan Fish (Guillemard); Nan Hua Chang (Crawford Lane); Sum Kee (Telok Blangah); Tong Ah (Keong Saik)

Which ones are good? And which ones over-rated?

Staycation at Dorsett Hotel Singapore at Outram Park MRT: The “Bermuda Triangle” of Eateries

I’ve a feeling that Dorsett Hotel at Outram Singapore has learnt from their own past experiences and other hotels’ experiences to maximize comfort for travelers during the stay; it’s really quite a smart hotel. Compared to some 5-star hotels, I prefer the 4-star Dorsett because it’s chic, eclectic, convenient, comfortable, and high-tech.
