Goodbye 2012 and welcome 2013. A great thanks to all the readers, supporters, media friends and friends. 2012 has been a busy year for me and it was not easy maintaining the blog while at the same time striking a balance between my full time job and personal life.
Being a food blogger, many times friends and readers will ask me for recommendations or which is the best restaurant I have visited? Here is a wrap up of the restaurants in 2012 that I have visited and I find their food memorable. Since my blog is about food near the MRT stations, the 10 restaurants below (not in any order of merit) are selected as they are near to MRT stations too.
Without further a do, I present to you SG Food on Foot Top 10 Best Restaurants 2012.
