Cicheti – A Slice of Italy in Singapore

It really is a sign of how globalised a world we live in when you find a slice of Italy in your home country, in the least expected way. So the story goes that I was a little disappointed by the underwhelming pizza and pasta we had at the touristy areas in Venice and Florence last… Continue reading Cicheti – A Slice of Italy in Singapore

The Art of Discovering Florence

During our summer in Europe last year, we met an Italian guy and told him we were enroute to Cinque Terre. He then spoke about his home country and said, You must visit Florence.

Red Spice Road

While I’ve expressed previously that I’m not a huge fan of Modern Asian cuisine, I’ve always counted Red Spice Road as an old favourite for a few reasons: 1.
