 The Carvery is a restaurant situated on the 7th floor of Park Hotel Alexandra, just beside IKEA. As the name suggests, the Carvery offers cooked meat that are freshly sliced to order right in front of you. If you’re a true blue carnivore, you’re in for a real treat! The meat selection includes chicken, pork and the restaurant’s specialty, beef.

 You would probably be very familiar with tonkatsu, fried pork cutlet. But how about some deep fried breaded beef cutlet that is still rare on the inside? Shortly before my trip, I was recommended by a friend who even went back twice to Motomura Gyukatsu to have the gyukatsu fix. Located in the crowded districts of Shinjuku and Shibuya and highly popular amongst locals and tourists, this only means that you have to be patient to score a bite of this.

 I wanted to try a variety of ramen in Tokyo, and so I did — I tried a chicken based, tonkotsu based, tsukemen and yuzu based ramen as they all sounded appealing to me! By order of my preference, here is the list of my ranking:
  1. Kagari Ramen
  2. Ichiran Ramen
  3. Rokurinsha Ramen
  4. Afuri Ramen

 Kyoto, when compared to Tokyo, is more traditional and laid-back. The quaint streets of Kyoto momentarily brings you back in time, showing that no matter how advanced Japan is, a part of it still retains the traditions. I’ve been wanting to experience staying in a ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn where you sleep on tatami mats.

 Donning a kimono for the ladies and yukata for the men is a must when you’re in Kyoto! You can easily find many other tourists and even Japanese on the streets wearing the traditional costumes. Of course, there are many shops offering kimono rental service and I rented mine from Okamoto Kimono.

Pioneer of Thai barbecue in Singapore, Mookata now introduces yet another new twist to the scene — the cheesy mookata! Mozzarella and cheddar cheese are added to the sides of the Mookata grill of barbecued meat and other ingredients. The idea of Mookata is already a good one and the addition of cheese just makes it even better!

Bringing you a wide variety of Vietnamese cuisine is Pho Street, a brand under the Select Group. The menu is separated into 6 main sections — Noodles, Vermicelli, Rice, Banh Mi, Street Snacks and Drinks, which encompasses a good selection to satisfy each customer. Once every few months, Pho Street introduces a limited-time special item that features a dish from a Vietnam province that may not be as commonly known to us. Ingredients will then be specially imported from Vietnam to recreate that dish. This is part of their idea of bringing lesser known Vietnamese cuisine to us Singaporeans.

See-through glasses, low hanging light bulbs, bright lights with the restaurant’s name hanging above the bar and loud posters. Portraying a typical American diner bar, Roosevelt’s interior is fun, casual and makes a good place to hang out with friends. The menu features the usual American suspects salad, pasta, waffles, burgers and all day brunch menu items like eggs benedict and the big breakfast. Milkshakes, smoothies, wines and bottled craft beers are also available.
