Eleven Madison Park (New York)

Eleven Madison Park (New York)

Eleven Madison Park - New York (5)

Eleven Madison Park is one of the newest restaurants to be awarded 3 Michelin stars in New York, having been upgraded from its 1 Michelin star status in the 2011 guide to the coveted 3 Michelin Stars in the 2012 guide.

From my experience of the lunch that I had, it not only deserved to be the crown jewel in the Danny Meyer empire, it definitely deserved every one of those stars.

There are many plus points that led me to think highly of the meal. Food aside, the service was impeccable; It was hard to fault the attentive yet non intrusive service. A good gauge of how well trained the staff are, is to ask them questions about the ingredients or cooking techniques of the dishes. At EMP, the wait staff readily answers your question with confidence without having to scoot off to seek the opinion of a manager or someone from the kitchen.

Momofuku Noodle Bar (New York)

Momofuku Noodle Bar (New York)

Let’s face it, David Chang is one brilliant restaurateur. He has extended his reach of the Momofuku empire, from Ssam Bar to Momofuku Ko to the Momofuku Milk Bars and more recently, the launch of his Lucky Peach magazine.

When I visited New York back in December 2010 (Yes…. I know that it’s been………. a while!), I made a trip down to the one of his outposts, the Momofuku Noodle Bar on First Avenue (Cross St of 11th Street), to try out his famous pork buns and the Momofuku ramen.

Bronte

Bronte

The stretch of Greenwood Ave is one of those rather hidden and pretty much inaccessible by public transport jewels.  But should anyone that decide to make the trip, he/she will not be disappointed at the selection of great cafes and restaurants.

Bronte is a quaint little restaurant that serves up unpretentious Australian comfort food.  I was recently invited there to try out their brunch menu. Bronte’s menu does not feature a myriad of items for you to choose from, instead it has just enough items to make it hard for you to make a decision.

We had three mains and three desserts (and some fabulous bubblies in the middle).

The recent incident involving an Indian family cooking curry and a PRC neighbour who found the smell of curry too overwhelming for their nasal caused quite a stir and Singaporeans showed their love of curry by participating in the Cook-A-Curry-Day.
