seng's noodle bar singapore

I’m falling behind the blog again these days with lots of interesting meetings and projects of late. Love the details on this spoon and the tile tables! (Chong Wen Ge Café down the street from the noodle bar!) WL and I never got to catch up in Paris despite so many (half hearted) attempts to […]

This is my friend Oli’s favourite restaurant. Chicken collagen hotpot, and what the Japanese call “beauty hotpot”. This pile of gelatinous white block melts into stock for cooking your meats and vegetables. It was interesting but a tad too salty for me, but I’d have it every once in a while, you get the option […]

So, I’ve been in a slightly awkward situation since I’ve been back in Singapore. I am starting to receive invitations for free meals via email and my social channels, and in return “to post on IG” or on the blog. Blogging for many friends I know is a labour of love and it has lost its fun […]

warehouse hotel singapore

My friend V was in town for work and chose to stay at the newly open Warehouse Hotel – great space and vibe, despite the (lack of) service. Loved the personalised local food items for the mini bar. We met up for breakfast over a rich and tasty bowl of Bak Kut teh, thicker soup […]

kift cafe singapore

Kith Café was giving out free coffees in the neighbourhood on opening day (today) which looked like a good idea drawing in the crowd – but I think most people stopped by for free coffee only without ordering anything else. We went for a carrot cake and the giant chocolate banana cake – both were freshly […]

singapore michelin hawker chan soya chicken

Just last month Mr Chef was in Sydney cooking alongside Singapore’s new gastro hawker sensation Hawker Chan – the world’s cheapest one Michelin star meal. Move over Tim Ho Wan – overrated dim sum franchise of the decade! We went in search of Hawker Chan on chef’s last visit to Singapore hoping to say hello […]

Love this little spot tucked away in Dempsey. I wasn’t aware that Open Farm Community was another of chef Ryan Cliff’s projects, but a really chilled out rustic space serving up locally grown greens. The food is real and simple, tasty and the portions are fair. I had a green pea soup served with jamon. […]

So many hipster cafés have sprung up around Singapore and they all have the same vibe: rustic, beautiful environment, instagram perfect food and often times instagram perfect mise en scene like marble top tables, rustic utensils for props etc. The refinery is that kind of café serving hipster price (read: overpriced food), but you’re really paying […]

It’s all the rage these days. After I discovered this in Taipei a couple of months back, I found out there’s a LeTao opening at Hong Kong’s IFC and also in Singapore. Somehow, Hokkaido cheesecake is all the rage in this region. I love them all those Japanese cheese cakes and LeTao does a pretty […]

Catching up with a backlog of photos and plenty of drafted entries and trying to polish up my lightroom skills while I’m at it. My friend Lydia who’s been living in Taipei for 10 years on and off now recommended this spot where she gets her regular beef noodles fix. Rich broth that wasn’t too […]
