The striking industrial chic look at Jewel Café + Bar is based on a design of contrasts and is conceptualised by the local cross disciplinary design practice FARM. Envisioning Jewel as a gem amongst the rugged surrounds of timeworn Rangoon Road, FARM decided on a raw shell of cold, bare concrete which is embellished with jewel-inspired details such as glittering crystal light bulbs, warm brass and copper ceiling features, glass doors, teakwood paneling and pristine white subway tiles reminiscent of vintage diners.
The laidback, quirky personality of the café is also evident from the al fresco patio at the front of the café, which is set up with latticed wire chairs in a retro shade of blue and an oversized chalk board that depicts witty cartoon etchings by a local artist.
For the menu, they took an irreverent approach to calorie-counting and go the whole hog to tantalise your taste buds. For instance, the traditional French Onion Soup is duly capped with a comforting baguette crust of Swiss Cheese, Parmesan and Gruyère, which is a great foil for the sweet caramelised onions beneath.
Don’t miss the unique Shio-Koji Octopoke, Jewel’s rendition of the poke, a Hawaiian raw fish salad, that’s given a touch of Japanese glamour. Tender cubes of pan-seared octopus are tossed in shio-koji (a fermented rice-based salt substitute), wasabi and extra virgin olive oil, paired with creamy avocado and shredded ginger flower for extra zing.
The sweet-toothed should leave room for classic desserts such as Homemade Apple Crumble, Tiramisu and Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Bean Ice-Cream. A standout treat is the refreshing Pan-Seared Watermelon Steaks that’s simultaneously warm, sweet, tart and salty.
With its wide array of breakfast items, Jewel Café + Bar makes a great destination for a languorous pick-me-up any day of the week. The breakfast menu lists popular favourites like English Breakfast, Eggs Royale, Eggs Florentine, Croque Monsieur and Brioche French Toast.
You can pop in for early cocktails during the happy hour daily or post-dinner tipples, as Jewel’s full-fledged bar serves up a list of exquisite original concoctions and international beers.

Designed by the Stripe Collective, the elements of the space evoke a traditional French bistro: vintage mirrors lining the walls, wooden banquets, unique paper tablemats from France. Details such as the custom-designed lights introduce a post-war utilitarian and industrial influence to its design.
It all began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, a miller from France’s southwest, created a bakery in Paris at 16 rue Royale. The beginning of this century found Paris wrapped up in a frenzy of distraction and going out in public. Louis Ernest Ladurée’s wife, Jeanne Souchard, had the idea of mixing styles: The Parisian café and pastry shop gave birth to one of the first tea salons in town.
The story of the Ladurée Macaroon starts in the middle of the 20th century with Pierre Desfontaines, who first thought of taking two macaroon shells and joining them with a delicious ganache filling.
These small, round cakes, crisp on the outside, smooth and soft in the middle, are made every morning in Ladurée’s “laboratory”. The pastry chefs measure out very precisely the required amounts of almonds, eggs and sugar, before adding one final ingredient, a pinch of unique “know-how”, essential to the making of such a delicacy. Once cooked and filled, the macarons are put to one side for 2 days before going on sale, the time it takes to achieve a perfect balance between texture and flavour.
With each new season, Ladurée pays tribute to its most famous creation by creating a new flavour. Their existing range of macarons is always the starting point when a new one is created, as the variety of colours is as important as the range of flavours and a vital part of their appeal.
The first level counter only carries macarons, but they also serve chocolates, jams, tea and other confectionery.
The new all-suite wing of the MoÌvenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa was once a barrack base that housed British artillerymen during World War II. Now it has been meticulously restored to offer you a sense of history that’s been fully updated with every contemporary comfort.
The three-storey Heritage Wing now features 62 sumptuous suites and an all-day restaurant. During restoration by Singapore’s DP Architects, the wing’s atmospheric original features such as colonial doors, window frames, high-ceilings, wide covered "link way" corridors and other architectural details were fully renovated to their former glory.
The building’s colonial ambience was also enhanced by contemporary flourishes. For example, a 4.8-metre Y-shaped table crafted from a single piece of Indonesian teak has become a design focal point in the WOW whiskey bar in addition to full granite table tops and oversized "kerosene lamp" chandeliers.
Taking inspiration from Singapore’s culture and tropical climate, the designers incorporated atmospheric fans (as well as air- conditioning), floor-to-ceiling windows, slate bathroom floors, patchwork carpets, natural wood finishes and local design motifs.
You will be able to enjoy the majestic view of the commanding Merlion statue from your room, a reminder of Singapore's magical history and traditions, or a tranquil pool view from the room.
Dedicated butlers are assigned to all heritage suites to provide the ultimate standard of luxury and comfort. Those requiring private meeting space can also request for a complimentary meeting room for up to 2 hours. You are also invited to the elite lounge where breakfast, evening cocktails and coffee, tea and snacks are served throughout the day.

Ito-Kacho, a new-corner to Singapore's gastronomic scene, might very well show us how it is done when it comes to serving high quality beef.
A subsidiary of a large Japanese corporation known as Sumikin Bussan, Ito-Kacho was first established in 2009 in Japan with the sole intention of providing you an opportunity to taste top grade barbecued beef at a more affordable cost. They import their stock of Wagyu cattle solely from an island called Kyushu.
As one of the first Yakiniku (barbecue) restaurants in Japan to use chilled instead of frozen meat, Ito-Kacho gives your taste buds an entirely new experience when it comes to beef. Due to the temperature at which the beef is stored at, its marbling is retained and thereby gives a better overall consistency.
Their extensive menu includes premium cuts such as Wagyu-Sasami (Flank Steak) and Toku-Jo-Bara (Short Rib) which are guaranteed to melt in your mouth, whilst the unusual offering of Wagyu tongue (Cow's tongue) is available if you are curious enough to venture into a more unfamiliar territory.
The interior design of the restaurant is a sleek, classy combination of black and brown wood. This coupled with warm and inviting lighting, provides you with a cosy feeling. If you are worried about the accompanying smell of smoke and barbecue, rest assured, the convection system built into the barbecue pit sucks out any air that rises above the cooking food.
Macha, a finely milled green tea has been associated with the tradition of Japanese tea ceremony. Different from a common green tea powder, Macha is much more refined, richer in aroma and has a smoother texture, besides the abundance of health benefits it brings.

The concept of Macha House is the brain child of the chairman of the company, Mr Hitoshi Goto. Mr Goto enjoys a good cup of Macha and his passion to share health benefits with his friends has led to the creation of the brand.
The traditional ways of the Macha is authentically brought over to Singapore. The Dorayaki is one of the specialities you’ll be able to enjoy that represents Japanese sweets arranged with a western fusion of style alongside their other deliciously blended green tea beverages.
Drawing from the idea of "Xian Cao" being "black" in colour and taro "balls", came the birth of BlackBall, a dessert connoiseur that has its roots in Taiwan.

He was thrilled and excited by what he had encountered, as not only did his new discovery taste great, but it also provided various health benefits. It was from this experience that his dream was born.
This dream finally came true for him after setting up the BlackBall Company in Taipei, introducing the amazing characteristics of "Xian Cao". The ingredient has now become a key inclusion in most traditional desserts accross Taiwan. Having started the BlackBall company back in 2006 it has now bloomed and stands as one of the biggest dessert chains in Taipei with over 20 outlets plus a further 10 outlets in Malaysia.

A private family residence designed by K2LD Architects, situated on a uniquely shaped triangular plot, the Winged House frames the site with two prominent forms: the trapeziums. These forms open towards the main view at the back of the site where 3 existing majestic palms are, and of lush greenery. These embracing forms carve out and frame a middle garden for friendly and private gatherings.
In response to the tropical climate context, the formal exploration took a turn from cutting openings from a pure trapezoid form to separating roof from form. The form draws from the understanding of traditional Malay architecture where the house itself is climatically responsive to bring you comfort. The form of the traditional Malay house is reinterpreted into folding trapeziums whilst keeping its climatic purpose of bringing in fresh air into its interior space. Elements such as the extended overhanging eaves and the double pitched roof are adopted into the form. The extended overhanging eaves are manifested in the form of extensive roof overhangs for the naturally ventilated spaces, which are enjoyed with much shelter and shade even during the seasonal heavy rain downpours.
The traditional double pitched roof is translated into the separation and staggering of the roof form. This split of the roof achieved a play of light and shadows into the interior space. Spaces such as the double volume dining room, the 2nd storey passageway and the large patio are all celebrated with the overlapping split roof and its light play. This slot is further enhanced at night with concealed light fittings illuminating the split. The staggered roof form also creates for the possibility of the penetration of natural ventilation into the living spaces.
Materiality is key to strengthening the relationship of the two winged forms, its space in-between and roof on roof. In the intermediate space between two forms is the main entrance foyer and living room which is flanked with two feature natural split granite walls, contrasting its heavy presence with the lightness of the roofs and vertical timber lines of the house. Timber is extensively used throughout the house, choosing a lighter species of timber (Burmese Teak) for the underside of the roofs versus the darker wood (Chengai) as the infill medium (ie: the sun-shading screens) to create a play of depth of the façade. The vertical timber screens not only help in providing shade from the harsh sun, but it helps blend the house with the lush vertical tree trunks of the surrounding greenery.

The name stems from the legendary lost continent of MU, coined by 19th century traveller and writer Augustus Le Plongeon. MU also refers to the Japanese word “çĄ” which means “nothing” reflected by the bare studio-like concept of the space.
Stepping into the parlour invokes an Alice-in-Wonderland experience as you tunnel your way through an exposed red brick stairwell to find yourself greeted by a whole new whimsical world. MU is furnished with a capricious mishmash of furniture- wooden garden benches lie next to elaborate iron wrought chairs, a framed pop-culture poster suspends above an antique chest of dresser drawers. White-washed walls and ceilings coupled with hanging stage lights create a studio-like atmosphere that in turn draws your attention to the details of the furnishings.
MU serves up an array of gourmet burgers that are made daily and never frozen. Bite into the No. 11 that’s packed with creamy chunks of avocado. Crisp iceberg lettuce, fresh onions and ripened tomatoes lend the burger a satisfying crunch and topped off with smokiness from sapid strips of bacon. Other highlights include the No. 29 with juicy Portobello mushroom and No. 2 that’s spiced with paprika and jalapenos. Each burger comes accompanied by a side of tangy California garlic fries for you to nosh on. Sweet endings come in the form of delectable pastries and tarts. Signature pastries include the Lemon Meringue Tart and Lemon and Hazelnut Praline Mousse.
Picking your poison will be a great feat when faced with MU’s intriguing selection of cocktails. The Eugenia is made with a fragrant Hibiscus tea base complemented with tropical notes of passion fruit and grapefruit, the punch in the drink comes from generous shots of Tanqueray Ten and MU’s own homemade Limoncello.
MU is not just a café, neither a studio and nor a boutique. MU is about delivering a lifestyle for those who seek it. It is a sanctuary for the weary, inspiration to the uninspired, a blank canvas for the imaginative.
