December 2004: Esmirada

Give your taste buds a break from your usual hawker/sandwich shop fare and check out the new lunch deal at Esmirada�s at the Orchard Hotel. Well known for its energetic Greek-style evening entertainment in the form of plate smashing, and waiters displaying unusual dance moves, Esmirada�s is a surprisingly civilized and relaxed place during the day.

April 2005: Michelangelo's, Holland Village

The inside of Michelangelo's is as warm and inviting as your mothers kitchen with reproductions of Michelangelo's artwork from the Sistine Chapel adorning the ceiling. The open kitchen opens the window to a scene of controlled chaos inclusive of banging pots, flaming skillets and smoking grills. The walls are adorned with hand painted sketches of his famous drawings. Candles twinkle everywhere creating an surreal glow and an atmosphere that is as conducive to a business dinner as it is for a romantic dinner for 2. The omni-presence of Angelo Sanelli, owner/executive chef, is felt everywhere as he slips his robust frame through the closely spaced tables and chairs greeting everyone as if they are his long lost cousin.
