Mariko’s Restaurant and Bar- Ramen, Sake and a Bit of Sass

Mariko’s Restaurant and Bar- Ramen, Sake and a Bit of Sass

With two red lights glowing outside a renovated shop house in the former red light district turned hot spot of Jiak Chuan Road Singapore, Mariko’s seems to be a fitting concept for a Japanese restaurant in the area.

That has all changed now that W Singapore-Sentosa Cove has launched Drop the T², a high-tea with attitude. You’ll still find scones at this high-tea, but they’re served with a passionfruit curd and clotted cream in a swinging bird cage. The quirkiness continues with a wood […]

Dean & Deluca in Singapore

Dean & Deluca in Singapore

The famous Dean & Deluca found its way to Singapore, opening in the middle on 2012. Hidden on the 4th floor of Orchard Central, we sought it out to finally try out their food, coffee and see if Felicity was working.
