Rice Garden – Chope Food For The Needy, Give Them a Food Voucher

It warms my heart to know that Singaporeans are doing their part to help those in need and less unfortunate than them. Last year, a “Chope Food for the Needy – Suspended Food Revolution” movement was inspired by the global “suspended coffee” initiative and started their own at Singapore’s hawker centres. People would just need […]

PODI at Raffles City – If Only It Is As Good As Cedele

First things first, I am quite a fan of Cedele. Whenever I feel like indulging yet having some healthier food, Cedele would be a choice with their homemade soups, fresh salads, wholesome multigrain beads… maybe add a dense carrot cake. The newly opened PODI at Raffles City is located by the basement main fountain, brought […]

5 Heritage Chinese Restaurants in Singapore – My #SGMemory Bank

Feeling nostalgic, I have decided to take a look back at some of my favourite Heritage Chinese restaurants in Singapore . Since papa is Hokkien and mummy is Teochew (that makes me half-Hokkien-half-Teochew), I grew up with some of these familiar foods, and many of these restaurants still contain the same kind of décor and […]

Halia – Afternoon Tea at Raffles Hotel? So Delightful

Never an afternoon tea person, but I could really learn to enjoy it. A familiar practice of the colonial days, afternoon tea was started by the wealthy class in England, and has taken a more popular form in Singapore made available in many hotels and tea houses. I digress and I ask, who goes for […]

Madam Kwan’s – Famous Nasi Lemak Restaurant at Vivocity

“OMG. It’s Madam Kwan serving me!” I got a bit of a pleasant disbelief when I saw Madam Kwan herself passing me the menu, complete with her signature grin, mole under her lips, specs and khaki-coloured hat. It was really her. “Thank you for coming. I hope you like our food.” She reminds me of […]

PappaSan Singapore – Chic Restaurant Selling Local Delights at Extravagant Prices

Don’t get me wrong. I am all for upping the status of Singapore street side food, making it more ‘atas’ and upmarket. While many are willing to pay bigger bucks for easier-to-prepare food, such as burgers and pastas, the same cannot be said local food such as satays and Hokkien mee – which can be […]

Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King – Four Seasons of Ramen at Bugis Village

The true Ramen Champion Keisuke Takeda does not repeat concepts and ramen. Not at all. From his signature Ebi Soba Prawn Ramen in Japan, to his other three Singapore branches – Crab Broth Ramen at Millenia Walk, Tontotsu King at Orchid Hotel and Tori King at 100AM Amara Hotel, every bowl of ramen is distinctly […]

Department of Caffeine – So Many New Cafés, This Stands Out

Does Singapore need another coffee joint? The answer apparantly is YES. This new kid on a block is not exactly a stranger to the café scene as owner Andrew Lek is former barista from Strangers’ Reunion. Department of Caffeine, otherwise known as D.O.C, took over the defunct Broadway Café at Duxton Hill and upped its […]

Abe’s Diner – Hidden Gem at Tiong Bahru. Omakase Dinner for $38

Yes, I know. Tiong Bahru is like THE happening district where there are so many hippie food joints. But I need to emphasize, for some of the places that are crowded, it may not mean that their food is good. Usually it’s all about branding. Vice versa. (Read: 5 Best New Food Places At Tiong […]
