Charmaine’s main obsession – the peanut butter and jelly sandwich ($8) – comes encrusted in cornflakes.

Another popular choice: the grilled cheese sandwich ($16), featuring a mix of cheddar and Emmental cheeses.

“If, like me, you grew up loving PB+J sandwiches, you will absolutely die for Park Bench Deli’s take on this any-time-of-the-day snack. Think a triple stack of toast smothered with thick, crunchy peanut butter, sticky jam and chocolate before being coated in cornflakes. This sandwich belongs in the PB+J hall of fame. It’s a #peanutbutterjellysandwichoncrack! Special mention also goes out to their refreshing Acai bowl, an ideal snack for those of you who aren’t in the mood for something so filling (or unhealthy!)”

Meat-lovers, you’ll dig the Kagoshima beef with onion jam and wasabi ponzu ($45 for 75 grams/$90 for 150 grams).

The Penicillin cocktail ($23) is her tipple of choice.

“Another standout addition to the celebrity chef restaurant collection at Marina Bay Sands, what I really love about Adrift, besides their stand-out modern Asian cuisine, is their absolutely delectable array of cocktails and bar bites. My favourites are the Dark & Stormy and their signature Whisky cocktail dubbed Penicillin (if you like smoky, peaty whisky, you’ll love this!). The bar is large, plush and beautifully designed – a great place to relax and unwind after work.”

Refreshing on the palate: the Hokkaido scallops, celery ,jamon and soy dish ($22).

The finely plated charred lamb rump, black olive, baby artichokes and caper berry ($40) wins points for presentation.

“Located on the ground floor of the Tanglin Post Office, this place has fast become a favourite dining spot for my family. It’s hard to pick a favourite dish when everything that comes out of the kitchen is pretty much done to perfection. Head Chef Rishi Naleendra seems to have a knack for making the most simple of ingredients taste extraordinary. Even the humble baby corn is transformed into a gourmet snack when smoked and served plain with a creamy Parmesan dip.The freshly shucked NZ oysters we had were plump and juicy and served with a zesty Cucumber sorbet instead of the usual lemon juice and tabasco combo. If I was forced to choose, my favourite item on the menu would have to be his Ceviche of Argentinian Prawns in Kombu and Wasabi Buttermilk. P/S: Make sure you leave room for dessert!”
