Here’s the review of a restaurant called “Brussels Sprouts”, from the Luxe guide to Singapore.
The malty brews and steaming hot moules are must haves at this breezy bistro and bar. 01-12 The Pier, Robertson.
Then there was the 20-word review of a trendy-looking fish place I wandered past:
Dress down and prepare to get messy. No Signboard Seafood is over-bright, noisy, bustly and famous for its white-pepper crab.
But I did think that this was a cool illustration of the power of succinct, sharp writing. And I’d hazard a guess that the writers at Luxe spent far longer polishing their twenty-or-fewer words than their competitors did over their five hundred plus.
