Sin Lee Foods - Flat White (S$5.50)
Flat White (S$5.50)

Located at the foot of a HDB block in the Bukit Ho Swee estate is Sin Lee Foods. It is one of the newer entrants to the retro indie cafe scene in Singapore. But I’m not complaining. Sin Lee serves up pretty decent cups of coffee and its proximity to home makes it all the merrier.

The coffee, while nothing mind-blowing, is always served with a meticulously done up latte art. Perfect for Instagram. If memory serves, they use blends roasted by Papa Pahleta.

Esquina Tapas Bar

Esquina Tapas Bar

IMG 4056 In this humble food blogger’s opinion, Esquina serves up Singapore’s best tapas. Yes, it isn’t exactly the cheapest; yes, it isn’t the set in the most idyllic setting (say, set against a backdrop of the blue ocean) but the high quality dishes that the ever-busy kitchen more than makes up for these negatives. This is probably my 4th time to Esquina and up till now, I’ve not once felt let down. There have been no instances where I thought dishes could have been better. What you get is a small restaurant, with about less than 20 seats at the bar counter facing the kitchen brigade full on, a few tables along the five-foot way. I’ve read that there is a second floor with a few more tables. But trust me, the best place to be at Esquina is to be seated on one of the bar stools facing the kitchen. Unfortunately, the bar seats were all occupied on this occasion.

Bangkok: NAHM

Bangkok: NAHM

Chef David Thompson’s restaurant serving modern Thai cuisine in Bangkok, NAHM, is probably one restaurant that has been awarded with the most number of awards in the past year or so. A few months ago, it took the No.1 spot in the S. Pellegrino Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants and a few weeks back, it took the honour of No. 13 on The World’s Best 50 Restaurants. That said, both lists are published by the same company.

On the topic of rankings, the irony is that while I claim to not take heed of them, here I am visiting one of Bangkok’s top restaurants according to a reports list. At least, there were reviews by other food critics on magazines, newspapers and other bloggers which seem to make dining at NAHM, a rationale choice. The reviews found on Trip Advisor seemed relatively positive too.

With heightened expectations, I walked into NAHM hoping that it would be a meal to remember.

Priced at THB 2,000 per person (about SGD 80), the set dinner menu allows you to pick items from the a-la-carte menu. The set dinner comprises of a selection of canapés, a choice of one dish from each section to be shared with diners on the table, followed by the dessert. The portion sizes are determined by the number of people ordering the set menu.
