Tapas bars has probably been the new fab on the Singapore food scene for the past 6 months with new bars sprouting up all around our tiny island. I cant say I dont welcome this because I absolutely love Spanish cuisine.
Perhaps my expectations were too high but unfortunately, I was not impressed with Los Primos.
What I liked:
Tender and tasty jamon, soo good but served with rock-hard bread
Roasted suckling pig was sinfully good. The crackling of the skin paired with the melt-in-your-mouth flesh makes for a damm good bite.
The rest of the tapas were pretty pedestrian. The prawns were not fresh at all, making for one decidedly chewy dish.
Unlike the tapas, the paellas were huge. We could only finish half of each (though of course we did over-order). Both werent great either, the paellas here lacked the oomph and that umami taste of seafood running through the rice. The best squid ink paella I had in Singapore was at Don Quijote and this really paled in comparison.
Disappointing really because I so very much wanted to like this place.

Decided on an "adventurous" bike trip from Punggol all the way to Bishan park one sunny Weekend to check out the brunch menu at Canopy. I love the park connectors, it makes cycling around the island such a breeze and with an hour's worth of cycling behind you, indulging in brunch is not so sinful after all.
Canopy Garden is located right in the middle of Bishan Park and it is one of those warm inviting places filled with kids, cute dogs and healthy happy people. And the great thing about this place being in the heartlands is how reasonable prices are.
Scrambled eggs with toast, a tad too watery for my liking but great portions.
Eggs royale, not too bad rendition considering its only $13!
Huge-ass pancake, only $6 but it really did taste like Macdonald's one (although some people might be happy about that)
Overall, Canopy is a great place to relax and have brunch at but only if you live nearby.

I like any ramen place with free flow eggs and this is no different.
Table filled with condiments, the basket of eggs and free flow tea. I like places that give you a huge pitcher of water/tea, so much better than having to call the waitress over everytime you need a refill. To all places moaning and whining about the lack of wait staff, perhaps you should consider this?
Ramen bar Suzuki also provides free-flow rice and beansprouts (lunch)/cabbage (dinner). Really great for the big eaters.
The pure white tonkotsu ramen with extra egg was good. I love a thick sweet flavorful soup and this hit the spot.
The menu also features limited special ramen daily ( 10 sets per lunch/dinner serving). Tried the shrimp one on my second visit but was not a big fan. The 'heibi' flavor was a bit too strong for me and I like my ramen soup cleaner. Will stick to the original ones next time.

All day breakfast from Cedele, a platter of everything I love. Smoked salmon, scrambled eggs w bacon and a generous portion of avocado (mmm). Build a bit of everything into one bite, thats the best way to go about. A pity about the miserable portion of bread.
Cedele's carrot cakes is one of the better versions around. I like my cakes chunky.
