Shin Minori @UE Square

This is a Japanese Ala Carte Buffet (that used to be good). Okay, the story goes like this, I went to Shin Minori UE Square at the beginning of this year for lunch and was suitably impressed (Read more in the shop post). As someone who dislikes buffet in general, I found this one pretty good especially at this price point. But, recently I received feedback from one of my closed friends that the standard has dropped tremendously. He described the food as "not fresh" and "hard to stomach". Is this a one-off because the restaurant was having a bad day? Or did standards really dropped? Let me know if you have visited recently.

My Art Space @Istana Park

Orchard Road is one of the busiest parts in Singapore, even on a weekday. Luckily, if you want to temporarily escape the crowds and noise, there are still some places where you can seek refuge at. My personal favourites are L’éclair by Sarah Michelle, etto (previously Blackbird Bistro & Bar) and My Art Space, where Art Jamming meets Affordable Dining In The Park. Pool View Included!
