Mission: To respond thoughtfully and responsibly to my experiences of drinking and dining at restaurants with regard to the quality, service, preparation, presentation and overall experience received thereat. The standpoint is one who respects the crafts of the chef and sommelier and who seeks to understand their choices in the kitchen and cellar and grow in knowledge. In this, I will seek to be fair, reasoned, direct and constructive and aim to keep my ego in check on our mutual journeys through the worlds of food and wine.

Christmas Eve at Checkers
Dinner at Checkers was excellent. Mr Tan gave us a Salmon compote with cucumber strips for crunch and foundation. Next up was King Prawn in Ratatouille which was superb - all herbs and squish in the mouth. We had roast pork main course with salad and the most amazing roast potatoes - all butter and oil and melt in the mouth magnificence. Can't rememeber dessert. Bottle of Cullen Chardonnay 2008 and our La Forge 2009 Chardonnay washed everything down most pleasantly. Fantastic evening.
