Forlino ~ Italian Fine Dining Cuisine

I have always walked along One Fullerton, but never once went more than level where whole row is planted with restaurants.

Forlino is an Italian Fine Dining concept, with the top Japanese Chef, Kentaro Torii, manning the kitchen. Besides, Forlino has won several dining awards, further raising its reputation and confidence to diners on their food quality and customer service.

Upon taking the lift, there will be a short flight of stairs before reaching the reception counter.

Ramen Champion (Shabu Shabu)

Invited again for the food tasting to Ramen Champion, but this time trying out their shabu shabu, exclusively at Great World City! I am a definite lover for ramen, but being to Ramen Champion at other outlets on several occasions, this has kept me anticipated for long!

Shabu Shabu is one of the popular dining method in Japan, but of course also commonly known as "steamboat" in Singapore, which is seen widely during the Chinese reunion dinners. But one do not have to only eat it during special occasions, and Shabu Shabu has been introduced to Ramen Champion to encourage diners for a get-together and mingle around.

Mama Shop

Recent startup of Mama Shop have created quite a stir in Singapore, as known by most teens, it is opened by Singapore's artistes, Felicia Chin and Sora Ma.

Located at the backyard of Chinatown, it wouldn't be an easy walk up either via the steep slope for vehicles or the steep flight of sheltered staircase. Housed in the old Police Force Headquarters, it can be considered a hidden find because from the outside, you wouldn't have known about Mama Shop because there isn't any signs or indicators of cafe/eatery in the building. With the difficult walk from Eu Tong Seng Street, very few would have even been bothered to conquer it.

Right in front of Mama Shop, is an empty space, looking like a badminton court, perhaps for the police not-on-duty back in the past for some play-time. In the night time, I suppose Mama Shop could have use this space for some party time or to accommodate more patrons when the crowd gets too overwhelming.

Along Upper Bukit Timah Road, right opposite the Bukit Timah Shopping Centre, is a row of shophouses, selling food and aim to make every diner leave with a happy belly.

Stirling is no exception. Having opened for 10-11 months back, it has garnered a number of regulars for their drinks and signatures. Just as their motto says, Stirling aims to provide quality food, bringing in a wide variety of alcoholics for after-office workers to relax after a day at work, all in a cozy English ambiance and friendly crew.

Outdoor area is to accommodate the pub-goers for a drink and chat, while interior is more suitable for a cozy meal, as well as a romantic dinner with your partner.
