Pizza Hut – Not Just Pizzas, But 12 Different Pasta Perfetto Dishes!

Pasta Hut? Wait, I was not seeing wrong. Before I walked into the restaurant at City Square Mall, I took a double take at the signage. It was “Pasta Hut” all right. Did Pizza Hut decide not to sell pizzas anymore? Not quite so. It turned up that Pasta Hut was a special four-day branding […]

Epilogue Café – When Popular Bookstore Opens a Café

Popular Bookstore opens a café. Yes, the same Popular Bookstores where hungry, I mean kiasu parents hunt down assessment books and 10-years series for their adolescent to get a head-start of their successful life. Popular was my ‘saviour’ in that way too. (Won’t have cleared my Os and As without you, Popular!) Epilogue Café within […]

Hearing the name “Tea Party Café” alone would remind me of a cosy café with cupcakes and little porcelain cups, with a whimsical feel somewhat like the Mad Tea Party in Alice in Wonderland. The Tea Party Cafe at China Square somewhat almost has the feel – apple green painted walls with black and white […]

Kungfu Paradise – HK Cafe to HangOut after Midnight at Bugis+

Bugis+, the mall formerly known as Iluma, has finally reopened. Known for its illuminated façade and interesting mix of tenants, the former Iluma did not attract even patrons – largely due the lack of a flagship stores, unappealing mix of tenants, and lacklustre F&B outlets. Would history repeat itself? It has opened with Singapore’s biggest […]

BigBank Café – New Western Food Cafe Opens at Killiney Road

This corner shop space at Killiney Road changed hands from House of Rice Roll and Porridge, Sun Coffee Planet, Ding Ji Café to the present BigBank Café in about a year.
