It may have taken Manila a little longer to get to where it wants to be on the foodie radar; slowly but surely, it's showing the world its culinary prowess and Madrid Fusion Manila is possibly just the beginning.

If the few tapas that we sampled at My Little Tapas Bar are anything to go by, you’re in for a delicious ride.

After a fabulous mod European dinner at the recently re-opened Restaurant Ember last week, it's no stretch to say that the cooking by new head #chef, Sufian Bin Zain (former Waku Ghin executive sous chef and one-time head chef of Iggy's) is very accomplished indeed. But given his calibre, we reckon that it's no stretch for the chef to step out of his safe harbour to take some risks in the kitchen. For when he does, I think Sufian's cuisine will start turning heads. Till then, the publicity-shy chef will pack them in with his stable of familiar favourites: duck confit, bouillabaise, Jerusalem artichoke soup and the likes. And at $88 per head for dinner (4 courses), it's great bang for buck.

Think you’ve seen enough of grill bars in our little red dot? Think again, for a newly debuted Josper oven-centric restaurant and bar is out to prove that it's a value-added addition to the crowded scene.

Before you throw your hands up in the air and let out a yawn at yet another addition to the crowded Italian dining scene in Singapore, pay heed to what Duxton Road newbie, Alba 1836, will bring to the table: fine Italian fare by Alessandro Frau, who achieved somewhat of a celebrity chef status after he triumphed at Thailand’s Iron Chef TV show last year.

Chef Jason Tan is a class act and Corner House is going down in our books as one of Singapore best new openings in 2014

There are no starters and no desserts on the menu @ Pince & Pints, just lobsters (done 5 ways) but this Duxton Road newbie still manages to pack-in the crowd.
