Here, you will get to savour contemporary and premium quality Italian cuisine, infused with Japanese finesse. Your gastronomic dining experience is complete with their curated accompaniment of fine Italian and unique Japanese wines. As for today, I will be reviewing the new bar bites menu for you guys.

Smoked Salmon on Almond Biscuit
Sliced of marinated smoked salmon with garlic, Italian parsley, extra virgin olive oil on thick chunks of buttery almond biscuit, and guacamole. Salmon lover might like it, smoked salmon paired with almond biscuit actually work well.

Crispy Maguro Taco
Freshly diced tuna marinated in yellow miso paired with crispy taco shells made from scratch and baked to prefect crunchiness, it definitely will make you want more of it. It also topped with sliced avocado and shredded vegetables tossed in rice vinegar.

Chicken and Japanese Leek Skewer
Some interesting combination in this dish. Grilled chicken skewers marinated with yogurt, paprika, lemon juice, and cajun, served on mesclun with soya vinaigrette. It’s not just sound interesting and it also taste good.

Deep Fried Potato Skin
Savour in baked potato shells, stuffed with a bountiful blend of chili con carne atop melted cheese and topped with coriander. Served with sour cream on the side. Potato lover definitely love it because I love it too. I can simply order 3 or 4 plates and have it by myself.

Beef Cheek Burger
Slow Cooked tenderised beef cheek in red wine, served with bacon and melted red cheddar cheese. Topped with a generous serving of rocket salad, roma tomato, glazed beet root, sliced red onion, and Japanese roasted sesame sauce. By seeing the ingredients in it, I already can’t wait to try it. The beef cheek was extreme tender and flavorful. I almost at all the burger in the plate by myself.

Wagyu Rump Beef Burger
Sink into a grilled wagyu rump steak, sandwiched between sesame buns slathered with peanuts butter, topped with sliced tomatoes, caramelised onion, with red cheddar cheese. As everyone know, wagyu beef is the top quality beef, so it hardly will went wrong with it. This wagyu rump beef burger was surely worth the try.

Miso Chilean White Cod Burger
Marinated cubes of chunky white cod coated with miso, egg, mirin, and bread crumbs, tucked in a layer of caramelised onion, tomato, ricotta cheese, and gherkin. The taste was slightly blend for my liking.

My Verdict:
I like the new bar bites menu at the Caffe B Bar whereby most of the dishes are well-prepared and taste delicious. Some of the recommended dishes to try are beef cheek burger and deep fried potato skin. These two dishes pair well with red and white wine and it will definitely make you come back for more.

Review: Wooster and Jeeves in Perfect Nonsense at Capitol Theatre

Ever watched a comedy live? Wooster and Jeeves is back in Singapore! What that means for you is a hilarious time of old British humor if you can appreciate it. The accent may require some getting used to but if the male actors' impressions of old ladies don't crack you up, probably nothing will. With exaggerated movements, a dose of silliness on the part of the actors and their stage props, the play will leave you in laughter.

Watch the story unveil before your eyes as Bertie Wooster both narrates and acts out his recount with the help of two other characters, Jeeves and Seppings, the butler. With just three actors, they manage to pull off an entire play juggling the roles of many others through what is seemingly an ordinary day in the life of Bertie Wooster.

[Review] Wicked The Musical live in Singapore at Mastercard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands

Wicked The Musical live in Singapore Review:
Can you imagine a flurry of wild flying monkeys, with creepy music playing and spotlights dancing on the stage? How about guards brandishing their weapons and 18th century people adorned in green costumes? That's right, welcome to the Emerald City. A city of dreams only to the naive.

No one needs introduction to the main character Elphaba who is decked in black and mocked due to her green colored skin. Yet, she is only as ugly as you think she is. Wait till you hear her break out in song, one of the highlights of the musical. It will leave you in awe. Personally, I found the lyrics to be most catchy and uplifting, full of positive vibes.

Wicked is no doubt one of the best musicals with a theme focused on friendship and sacrifice. A light hearted musical that gives you a different perspective to the story of the Wizard of Oz, it does not fail to entertain. Just Glinda and her regular hair tosses and jokes at expense at her shallow character will keep you laughing in your seats.
