Fine Lunching with a View

20 Mar 2013 – Totally Food & A Surprise Visit!


Tue: JAAN*****Level 70, Equinox Complex, Swissotel. Derived from the ancient Sanskrit word for ‘bowl’, JAAN is an intimate, 40-seat restaurant dedicated to showcasing the finest in modern French cuisine in Singapore. The artisanal menu by Chef de Cuisine Julien Royer is built around a passion for showcasing the freshest ingredients through simple but beautiful dishes that reflect both culinary tradition and creativity. The result is imaginative, innovative cuisine that celebrates and respects seasonality, terroir and the skills of the world’s best gourmet producers.




Kitty from Ireland and I enjoyed a 3 course delicious and tastefully prepared food, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot bubbles over 3hrs! followed by another hour of shopping at Raffles City. This is the lifestyle of a true tai tai… 🙂


Tkx for dinner to Clement at Immigrants****back to the basics and revive the tastes and flavours that were once familiar. The food menu consists of dishes from the major ethnicities of Singapore – Chinese, Eurasian, Indian, Malay and Peranakan. These small plates were commonly eaten at homes but are fast disappearing today. Prepared by chef, Damian D’Silva, each dish has a story to tell.

Drinking is just as important as eating. Immigrants is the first of its kind gastrobar in SIN, pairing ‘tapas’ style heritage dishes with a range of beverages like, craft beers, wines and whiskies.


What a pleasant surprise! Welcome back to SIN Magnus, handsome young Norwegian friend. Time for only a drink at the Fullerton Hotel, but do appreciate the contact and updates. Good luck for all his conferences and safe journeys back to OSL/Norway. Hope to see him working in SIN or somewhere in the SE Asia area after his graduation this summer.

  1. Your lunch at Jaan washed down with Veuve Clicquot: green, green, grin, grin! So decadent yet so what I would love to do! Esp the champers bit!

    • Hi Lucy, at this age and stage in life, decadent is the way to go, but usually it is just the Kopitiam style… LOL! This was a special and probably once in a lifetime treat on behalf of a family (I could not afford this kind of decadence) to a friend from the 1950s.
