Food Review: Mercado Spanish Food Market Launches in CBD (closed)

One of the newest 'rice bowl' establishments has recently opened in Raffles Place. Called Mercado, the concept of this eatery can be concluded as casual with spunk. Drawing on European, notably Spanish cultural influence. Fuss free dining with quality ingredients, the food selection clearly reflects the concept being portrayed. Food at Mercado draws mostly on Spanish cuisine with some International & Western influences. This can easily be seen in some items offered such as bulgur, couscous and beetroot salad. Bordering on a healthy living approach, this eatery will not disappoint as well if you are into substantial portions...

Grilled Shrimp with Roasted Garlic Sauce

This grilled shrimp recipe is a perfect example of a dish that is simple to prepare, and yet bursting with flavor. Grilled to burnished perfection before being smothered in a tangy, sweet and sour sauce. This mouthwatering combination which is punctured with the grassy, herbal freshness of coriander and the haunting, citrus note of lime is a confirmed pleaser regardless of whether it is meant to be enjoyed alone, or to be shared at a party with friends and family...

Grilled Salmon Rice Bowl

Many of us would agree that Japanese rice bowl dishes taste exquisite. Many of us may also agree that once in awhile, a variation from the usual combination found in most restaurants and eateries provide a refreshing relief, and a chance for our minds and tummies to explore a little. What better way to do that than to try out this Korean inspired variation of the usual Japanese Salmon Rice Bowl (sake don)? Just the perfect dose of the familiar with a new twist of ingredients...

No Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake

It’s been a while since I made my No Bake Oreo Cheesecake and today, I decide to give myself (and the family, of course) a mini treat by making this No Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake. Instead of using digestive biscuits as the crust, I opted for my almost-close-to-expiration bag of feuilletine flakes. So far, I only come across it at Sun Lik Trading and Kitchen Capers. Alternatively, feel free to use good ol’ digestive biscuits widely found in most supermarkets...

Easy Stir-fry Soy Sauce Noodles

Growing up in a Cantonese household, one of our childhood breakfast items I could still fondly reminisce is this Easy Stir-fry Soy Sauce Noodles. There are no fancy ingredients used in this humble noodle dish, the key ingredient is good ol’ light and dark soy sauce. Since they are the “star” in this dish, it makes sense to use good quality soy sauce...

Food Review: Experience the “sixth flavor” at Stellar at 1-Altitude

For a limited period only, Chef Christopher Millar has come up with a Kokumi Constellation 8-course menu, focusing mainly on ingredients from Kyoto and Hokkaido. I always respect chefs who believe in using sustainable ingredients and Chef Millar is one of them. Staying true to his progressive Australian cooking style and using the finest Japanese Ingredients, he has interpreted these flavors through the “sixth taste” kokumi which refer to mouthfulness or heartiness...

Salted Caramel Apple Pie

As much as I love fruit pies, apple pie definitely ranks no. 1 in our household. Thankfully, apples are available all year round in Singapore so I have every reason to make this Salted Caramel Apple Pie. Thanks to the addition of salted caramel, the savory-sweet combo of the apple pie filling is simply one of the best filling I ever had.
