TRIED & TESTED: PS CAFE SINGAPORE

April 13th, 2014

pscafesingapore

Most striking feature:

When I asked for recommendations on Singapore, the PS Cafe was the address you said I absolutely couldn’t miss in Singapore. So ofcourse I went there to take a look for myself and I completely understood why. PS Cafe is located in Dempsey Hill, an area known for its fine dining restaurants (such as The White Rabbit and the new Pidgin). Somewhat outside the main restaurant hub, you will find the PS Cafe in a lush green environment. If you walk down the path that brings you to the entrance you’ll feel Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: EXTRA VIRGIN PIZZA SINGAPORE

April 9th, 2014

extravirginpizzasingapore

Most striking feature:

Just like Wheeler’s Yard this spot isn’t really located in the center of Singapore (at United Square), but as I described earlier, the homemade Strawberry Basil Soda was to die for. So delicious. And since your day evolves around food in Singapore I had to try something of their menu, although I already had lunch at another address. So I’ve tried the panna cotta with chocolate and that was really good too. Extra Virgin Pizza is a new style pizzeria: no red/white checkered tablecloths, but a sleek interior with nifty details. You can go

Most striking feature:

When you go to Manly Beach by boat you arrive at the Manly Wharf where you will find Papi Chulo. This new restaurant, with a North & South American cuisine, comes from the guys at Merivale, a restaurant group in Sydney who are also responsible for Mr Wong and Palings for example. This is their first restaurant in Manly and the atmosphere is unforgettable. The entire front consists of Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: RUSHCUTTERS SYDNEY

April 2nd, 2014

rushcutterssydney

Most striking feature:

At Rushcutters you will find everything that I love in a hotspot: it is located in a large industrial warehouse, the floor-to-ceiling windows are always open, the food is perfect and the design unbeatable. Rushcutters is divided into several areas: a casual cafe with those floor-to-ceiling windows, a take-away bar, a communal table in the back of the restaurant and ofcourse the restaurant itself. I went there to have breakfast (frittata with mushrooms and a tea) and it was really good. You can go here by yourself or with friends. At night they Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: THE GROUNDS OF ALEXANDRIA SYDNEY

April 1st, 2014

thegroundsofalexandria

Most striking feature:

A complete cafe-experience with a stunning design. The Grounds of Alexandria was one of the places I wanted to visit as soon as I landed in Sydney because I wanted to see the interior of this fantastic cafe. Not knowing that it’s definitely more than just a cafe: it’s an experience complete with a terrace, a take-away coffee corner, a market on Saturday, yoga-lessons, a new building in development and a pig named Kevin Bacon. Whenever you’re there it’s always full of people: with or without kids. Kids love it here too because of the animals and the tiny little animal farm on site. When I visited there was a line of people waiting for their good coffee, but I didn’t join them because I wanted to have breakfast here. I’ve ordered eggs on toast with banana cake with it and I didn’t have to eat for hours after that: I was stuffed – in a good way because it was al so delicious. The manager gave me a tour of the property and I’ve learned that Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: THE JANE ANTWERP

March 24th, 2014

thejaneantwerp

Tomorrow The Jane in Antwerp will open its doors: the new restaurant of Sergio Herman and Nick Bril. When they announced in February you could book a table, the line was almost immediately flat. Within a few hours, they listed more than a thousand (!) tables as reserved. Ofcourse everyone wonders what Sergio Herman and Nick Bril have in mind with The Jane, because Oud Sluis, with three Michelin stars, was obviously a huge success. In December they closed the doors for good and tomorrow almost the entire team continues working with the same passion for The Jane.

Its striking feature is that it’s a complete concept. It is not only about the amazing dishes, and believe me, during the seven-course tasting menu I went from one taste sensation to the other, but really everything you can think of is carried out in detail. I like to tell you what caught my eye, but I think that, just as you see something different in the windows designed by Studio Job everytime you look at them, there’s far more to discover.

Let’s start with the location. The restaurant is housed in a former chapel of a military hospital in Antwerp and designer Piet Boon has decided to keep that feature visible. Even play with it. Where the priest Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: BARRY MELBOURNE

March 20th, 2014

barrymelbourne

Most striking feature:

The counter made of wooden drawers. Barry is a new cafe in Northcote, a district in the north of Melbourne. It is actually located in between Fitzroy and Brunswick and the boy who works here told me it’s an upcoming neighbourhood. Barry is the place for a coffee-to-go where you can read the newspaper while you wait, or for breakfast or lunch. I’ve tried the fried eggs and it was so yummy. A really Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: RUYI MELBOURNE

ruyimelbourne

Most striking feature:

The most beautiful Chinese restaurant I have ever seen. Around the corner from the Ovolo Hotel and just outside Chinatown you’ll find Ruyi, a new restaurant with a stunning interior. It means ‘as you wish’ (see the Chinese characters with that meaning on the ground at the entrance). The restaurant is owned by Qian Qian and Sheng Fan, two Australians with their roots in China. The kitchen is Chinese, but Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: FONDA MEXICAN MELBOURNE

March 18th, 2014

Fonda Mexican

Most striking feature:

They have a marinated kangaroo salad on the menu. How’s that for some exotic flavor? Fonda Mexican is a Mexican restaurant on the happening Chapel Street in Windsor. There’s also a Fonda Mexican in Richmond and soon they will open a new one in the CDB. On the menu you will find many Mexican dishes that take you back to your holiday in Mexico (in my case to my stay at Papaya Playa Project in Tulum last month). From quesadillas to burritos and from tacos to a delicious Read more…
