Ten Ren Tea from Taiwan opens in Singapore Image credit: @binh.tle It seems Singapore is on the radar for Taiwanese bubble tea owners, with not one, but three famous bubble tea stores from Taiwan setting up shop on our sunny island in the past two years. And next on the list to open is Ten Ren Tea 天仁茗茶! Image credit: @vonguyenduyy Set to open their first store at Chinatown Point on 28 July 2018, Ten Ren Tea 天仁茗茶 is known to be one of the biggest BBT chains as of now. Founded in 1954, the famous bubble tea store has conquered the world, with stores in China, Macau, Hong Kong, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Australia and North America. Seriously, they are so famous they have multiple hashtags on Instagram including #tenrenteatime and #tenren, both of which have thousands of posts! Hollin Bubble Tea For Handmade Flavoured Pearls Like Matcha, Cocoa And Black Sesame Specialising in traditional brews, their teas are bolder in flavour, and are unlike your usual cloying bubble tea. A must-get is their signature King’s Oolong Tea for its roasted aroma and smooth finish. Other favourites include their Jade Milk Tea with Nuts, Strawberry  Jasmine Tea Latte, Taro […]

Affordable food at The Bedok Marketplace For the longest time, I have marked The Burning Oak from The Bedok Marketplace down as one of the many food stalls I have to return to. However, I never found it in me to drag myself all the way to Simpang Bedok just for it – especially since my family members are not big fans of Japanese food. After hearing about the rest of the food found in the modern hawker centre, however, I finally have more than enough reasons to make the trip there. From zi char to wanton noodles and handmade bao, here are some stalls from The Bedok Marketplace to check out when you are in the East! 1. The Burning Oak  One of the first stalls that dominated The Bedok Marketplace when they opened was The Burning Oak. This stall specialises in wagyu donburi, boasting beef sourced from Australia. We tried their Foie Gras and Beef Don ($20) and Wagyu Rump Cap ($14) while we were there and were satisfied with every slice of flavourful and semi-fatty meat. Another dish that impressed us was the Pork Cheek Don ($12) that came with thick slices of juicy pork cheek served […]

Hokkaido-Ya at VivoCity A new kid on the block is Hokkaido-Ya, a casual Japanese restaurant located in VivoCity, owned and managed by the same people behind Sushi Tei. Found right beside the sister restaurant, Hokkaido-Ya boasts not only value-for-money food, but also cool technology that wowed first-time diners like me. Food at Hokkaido-Ya Sashimi lovers will be ecstatic to find a good variety of rice bowls and salad dishes served with your favourite seafood. Our favourite was the Aburi Mentai Bara Chirashi Don ($14.90+). It features an assortment of diced Hokkaido scallops, Norwegian salmon, tuna, house-made tamago, sweet prawns, salmon roe, flying fish roe, and whelk clams, scattered atop a bed of sushi rice from Niigata. The dish was torched before serving, giving each mouthful a fragrant char. The thick mentaiko sauce further brought out the freshness of each dice of sashimi, making it hard to put my spoon down. Those looking for a lighter meal can also opt for their Bara Chirashi Salad ($14.90+), which comes with a choice of sesame or onion dressing. If, like me, you like all things truffle, be sure to try either their Truffle Salmon Don ($10.90+) or Truffle Bara Chirashi Don ($14.90+). I […]

La Pizzeria at The Bridge & Beacon Bar While I rely heavily on things like bak chor mee and lukewarm delivery pizza as my main source of calories, my wannabe atas self can’t help but yearn for some fancy pasta and handmade, wood-fired pizzas every once in a while. So when I got a chance to check out the new La Pizzeria at The Bridge & Beacon Bar, I volunteered myself immediately. This new restaurant at the Republic of Singapore Yacht Club offers Italian dishes that lean towards traditional recipes. Food at La Pizzeria at The Bridge & Beacon Bar The huge bowl of Ravioli Spinach and Ricotta ($25++) enticed us most, so we decided to start with that. A staff member cut open the bread cover, and peeled it back to reveal plump pieces of ravioli swimming in thick, fragrant truffle mushroom cream. The flavours of the broth managed to soak thoroughly into the ravioli, and the filling of spinach and cheese melted nicely in my mouth as I bit into each piece. The Spaghetti Carbonara ($19++) looked nothing like what you’d get at many casual pasta eateries in Singapore. Instead of being soaked in cream sauce, the carbonara […]

Durian buffets with unlimited portions of the king of fruits My family was never one that would surround the dining table, armed with jugs of water and a chopper, just to feast on durian. In fact, the first time I tried durian was when I was a teenager and a family friend bought a durian crepe for me while we were out. From then on, I was hooked to this pungent and – let’s be real – ugly fruit, as well as its soft, creamy flesh. For those who can’t get enough of this king of fruits, there are a handful of durian buffets around that can help satisfy your craving. But remember to drink loads of water during and after, to prevent this heaty fruit from giving you a sore throat! 1. Thorny Temptations at Lime Restaurant Lime Restaurant’s Thorny Temptations offers both savoury and sweet durian dishes in its line-up. The former includes mains such as Baked Durian Nasi Lemak as well as Durian Salted Egg Popcorn Chicken. If the thought of having savoury durian turns you off, check out their spread of desserts such as Durian with Avocado Puree and Sago and the classic Durian Pengat. Between […]

Free durians in Singapore Image credit: Ah Lan Fresh Fruits Stall’s Facebook page According to a The New Paper report, at least two durian stalls were seen giving out free durians since Monday. Owner of Ah Lan Fresh Fruits Stall at Balestier Road, Madame Lee Chiew Lan, will be giving out 300kg worth of durians such as Red Prawn, D24, and Golden Phoenix every day until tomorrow. Madame Lee, who has run the stall for decades, wants to give the durians out as a form of thanking her customers. Image credit: Ah Lan Fresh Fruits Stall Sam Fruit Trading in Tampines was also seen giving out free durians on Monday. More than 500 people showed up during the giveaway with 1,300kg of durians given out over two hours. While the durians were only intended for elderly people aged 60 and above, younger people also joined the queue. Owner Chan Chee Ning plans to distribute free durians to the elderly next Monday again.   Image credit: timlow2002 The hot weather in Malaysia, the main source of durian to Singapore, has caused durian prices to plunge dramatically. Durian sellers have attributed the combination of rain and sun to cause the durians to […]

Michelin Bib Gourmand 2018 Image credit: @thefood.thief Michelin’s Bib Gourmand 2018 is out, and this time it features 50 eateries in Singapore! This is quite a big jump from the previous 38 hawkers and restaurants that were featured in last year’s Bib Gourmand. Image credit: @eltonventure And once again, hawkers take the lead, with 28 hawker stalls gracing this year’s list. That’s more than half! #hawkerpride Image credit: @dracdemon New entrants that got our nod of approval include Eminent Frog Porridge & Seafood (Geylang Road Lorong 19), Rolina Traditional Hainanese Curry Puff at Tanjong Pagar Plaza Market & Food Centre and Outram Park Fried Kway Teow Mee at Hong Lim Market. These stalls definitely deserve the award, with their long standing history of dishing out good food consistently for years. 9 Underrated Curry Puff Stalls Around Singapore That Are As Good As Old Chang Kee Image credit: @thecoconutclubsg Other new winners include Lian He Ben Ji Claypot Rice, Chuan Kee Boneless Braised Duck, and The Coconut Club. The latter is best known for dishing out a satisfying but pricey plate of nasi lemak at $12.80. On the other hand, there are a few that dropped out of the list from last year, […]

Do & Me with old-school Western dishes It is always a joy to find places in Singapore serving affordable food with generous portions. Do & Me was introduced to us by a colleague, who said you will find a chicken cutlet “bigger than the size of anyone’s face”. Hearing that, we decided to head down to see it for ourselves. Food at Do & Me We ordered a Chicken Cutlet and it was indeed mammoth-sized, proving to be as huge as, if not bigger than the size of our faces. The plastic plate could barely even contain the entire piece, along with the sides it came with. For such a large quantity at only $5.50, it puts many other Western stalls to shame. After cutting into the chicken cutlet, we found that its size might be attributed to it being pounded flat before being dipped into a batter to be fried. Cutting the chicken into slices revealed an uneven layer of meat – one side was thick, while the other was thin. Regardless, a flavourful batter is always a nice bonus. And the one at Do & Me was not only crispy, but also had a subtle peppery flavour apparent […]

A&W and Shake Shack in Singapore The last time we checked, Shack Shake was not opening in Singapore despite rumours. It has also been a year since we last got news that A&W will be returning to our shores, yet I haven’t been able to get my hands on their root beer float till now. If like me, you have been constantly on your toes waiting for the coming of these burger joints, the wait is almost over. Slated to open next year, Jewel Changi Airport will be housing more than 80 different eateries – two of which are said to be the famous fast food chain restaurants, A&W and Shake Shack. Image credit: @awrestaurants To the young ones who haven’t got the chance to experience the goodness of A&W, be sure to not miss out on their root beer float when they finally return. Unlike many typical root beer floats you get elsewhere, the ones from A&W are extra creamy from the generous amount of vanilla ice-cream that comes on top! Image credit: @shakeshack Besides their burgers, we are also hoping Shake Shack would bring over their decadent-but-worth-it Bacon & Cheddar Fries. Their shakes, of course, will be the […]

Food at Tanglin Halt Market Not to be confused with Tanglin Halt Food Centre, Tanglin Halt Market is the smaller hawker centre located just a stone’s throw away from the former. Though smaller, Tanglin Halt Market houses many popular stalls. If you happen to be in the area, check out these must-visit stalls at Tanglin Halt Market! 1. Jiu Ye Image credit: @winnaaurora While Hong Kong-style chee cheong fun is already an uncommon find at a hawker centre, what makes Jiu Ye even more unique is that their rice rolls are freshly made. A must-have would be their Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun ($2.50), which comes packed with lean meat. Their Fresh Prawn Chee Cheong Fun ($2.80) is a lighter option that is equally popular. For an additional $0.80, you can also get yourself a bowl of tasty porridge to go with the chee cheong fun! Unit number: #01-09 Opening hours: Wed-Mon 6am to 10am 2. Tian Shui Hainan Ji Fan  Image credit: @southernoise Fans of steamed chicken feet will have to give Tian Shui Hainan Ji Fan a try. This stall specialises in Crystal Chicken Feet ($3), which comes with gelatinous chicken skin doused in a thick savoury sauce. […]
