When Kith was a hole-in-the-wall cafe at Rodyk street, it didn’t appeal to me well enough to try it. Besides, there were lots of options along Robertson Quay with better seating and menu choices.
Kith cafe, very wisely, sprouted a second relatively spacious outlet at Park Mall. With the lure of better accessibility, a more robust menu (complete with a ex Da Paolo chef) and a pretty alfresco deck, it didn’t take me long to convince friends to go with me for dinner.
And things have changed now, I adore them.
I had the chance to be invited by Asian Food Channel (AFC) and DBS Indulge to attend Chef Osvaldo Forlino DBS Masterclass at AFC Studio. Some of us may make the connection to Italian fine-dining restaurant, Forlino, at Fullerton which Chef Osvaldo set up in 2008. He is no longer with the establishment and has now 2 of his own restaurants, No Menu and Ristorante Amarone located at Boon Tat Street and Capital Tower respectively. Another restaurant, focusing on seafood, will soon be opening at Marina Bay Financial Centre too.
Venice is such a pretty place, with no cars at all, but lots of boats, bridges, water and walking instead. Perfect for burning off some Italian carbs! Italians were just taking their time to enjoy some caffe or dessert after eating, we had wine every meal, dined by the river and had a wonderful time. Do note that many restaurants have cover or service charges but you can still spot some without!
Very nice tiramisu, though there seems to be some custard included.
The colourful island of Burano…
Da Paolo Bistro Bar occupies a beautiful colonial house at Rochester Park, and as you can imagine, is very comfortably spacious with both indoor and outdoor seating plus a bar area. The place is simply furnished, but there is still a certain dignified elegance to it.
The Robertson Quay area is my new dining obsession. And first up is Bella Pizza! Heard some good things about them, was hoping that the effort taken to travel to Robertson Quay will be dutifully rewarded at dinner.
