Wanna fine dine without breaking your bank? Well, Singapore Restaurant Week 2014 is back, and it's the golden opportunity for you foodies to step into the high-end restaurants you've always wanted, paying prices you would never dream of.

Happening from March 15th - 23rd, the bi-annual Singapore Restaurant Week, is back with its 8th edition!

Organised by DiningCity, and presented by American Express, this gastronomic affair is well-loved by both diners and restaurants. DiningCity was first launched in the Netherlands in 1998 and now operates in 35 cities around the world, offering an online restaurant reservation service! Restaurant Week has since grown to more than 42,000 reservations across 100 restaurants at the most recent edition!

Well, besides food tasting, invited guests for the Singapore Restaurant Week also got a taste of our home-grown Indian Comedian and TV Host, Kumar. It was my first time seeing Kumar live, and I was really surprised to see him dressed in a skimpy sexy outfit. Kumar was so funny, and got the audience laughing non-stop. I've to admit he's one-hell of an entertainer, although his jokes were mostly non-food related.

  18. All the yummy food certainly caught my eyes especially the Watermelon Sashimi. It is so unique and new to me. If I don't convert the price, I think they are very reasonably priced in Singapore. I always love your lovely island.
