We also finally review our favourite Korean Restaurant, Guiga Korean BBQ Restaurant. It serve a good all round quality Korean food at reasonable price. It used to open until 6 in the morning, however they have shorten their operating hours to 3AM daily. Other than the delicious beef and pork, check out their grill pork intestines and freshly pickled raw crabs.

For red meat, (steak place); Simple and unpretentious The Market Grill is a must try. Focus purely on food in a very casual ambiance. If you are seated at the middle section to the end of the restaurant, you can see the grill master at work. Do take note that this place does not take reservation, so you better be early and queue up.

Smack in the middle of Orchard Road, we were introduced an awesome place for High Tea, KUVO. While the hustle and bustle of Orchard Road happening below you, you can find serenity and elegance at KUVO. Enjoy your bite size sandwich, cakes or tapas with your tea or coffee. In the evening, prepared to be entertain by head bartender Yutaka Nakashima. Kuvo open till midnight on weekday and 2AM in the weekend, making this place a chill out destination.

This year we also made a few special discoveries for Crab Bee Hoon. Opened by Chef Mac Kong, Long Ji served the ultimate crab bee hoon. The thin bee hoon infused with robust crab stock, topped with female Sri-Langkan Crab, fried shallots, pork lard and cilantro. We became a regular here as our friends keep asking us to bring them here. So crab lovers, this place is a must try.
