A foodtake of 2010

Following up on last year's list...2010 has since come to a reluctant end. It has been a different year in all aspects. I still stuff myself silly, get excited about new dishes...I still live to eat. I guess that's what is going strong, this curiosity about food in general and that, has brought me new experiences and memories to keep.

Thanks to the group of food bloggers whom I meet up every now and then to catch up. It's been swell knowing you guys...! Food is never the same with you all.

Special thanks to the one and only, very accomodating and thoughtful sis! :) For all the reasons that I've mentioned before, you're truly one of the bestest dining partners I can ever ask for. Breakfast, brunch, tea, lunch, dinner, supper...we've conquered them all.

All the mush aside...here's my perfect 10 this year.

One. Surfing the Menu with Curtis Stone

The first encounter with a celebrity chef. Memorable in more ways than one.

Two. Pierre Herme Macarons

Worthy of all hype and every accolade. Being in the land of macarons made this one of the many reasons why I love Paris.

Three. Belgian Waffle, Brussels

The humble snack that will hold the dearest memories to me.

Four. Stella Maris, Paris

The first michelin starred meal experienced.

Five. Adolf Wagner, Frankfurt

As haughty as it sounds...german food never tasted the same again.

Six. L'Espresso Lounge, Goodwood Park Hotel

It's a tussle between Goodwood and Orchard Meritus' Triple 3...L'Espresso Lounge fulfills all the requirements of a lazy high tea in the most leisurely way ever.

Seven. Uluru Burger Challenge

An attempt on Adam Richman's "Man VS Food."

Eight. K Ki

Still in love with this place though only on payday! The priciest bites of cake around.

Nine. Iggy's

The precious attempt at Iggy's before they made the shift to Hilton.


Ten. Triple 3, Meritus Orchard


I returned twice for this. 'Nuff said.


Happy New Year one and all!!!

    Looks like Kki is making to the 2010 list in most blogs... Yea, and triple 3...
