When we first dined at Restaurant JAG last year, I predicted that Chef Jeremy Gillion’s passion for exotic European herbs and vegetables would surely win him a Michelin Star and indeed, that premonition came to pass later that year!

Prince Coffee House: Careful, that plate might be older than you!
Coffee Houses were all the rage back in the 70’s. Those were the days when “Western” food simply meant steak with baked beans and potato chips. The good old Coffee House is a term that you seldom hear of nowadays. I think for many Singaporeans of my generation, the term “Coffee House” would conjure up […]
One Egg Soup $3.90 I remember the time I started writing the blog over 3 years ago. One of the restaurants that really got everyone excited was Astons Specialties which had just opened their first restaurant at East Coast Road. Everyone loved the idea of Western food at great value.
