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 […]

So, this is one of my happy places in Singapore. The Company of Cats! You pay by the hour and get to hang out with friendly cats. And if you luck out at feeding hour in the late afternoon, you get to see all of them come out to play! The other secret I have […]

This café isn’t so new on the scene anymore. I think they opened last year and has a wonderfully simple menu of Italian classics. They do an excellent job with the simple classics, pizzas, pastas, risotto with set lunches from 98MOP. The space is sparse but intimate with hanging lamps and wooden tables. Here’s the […]

  Short trip home and met up with friends checking out this new cake shop in Bukit Pasoh – gorgeous wedding cakes and their patisserie isn’t too bad either. Contrary to their name, they’ve actually taken the other route by reducing sugar content in their baked goods. “We also cut down between 20% to 60% […]

  This little cosy spot is tucked away close to the Taipa hiking trail and a beautiful long row of colonial houses. We got to know the chef proprietor Maggie Chiang who trained in Cordon Bleu and spent time cooking in the kitchens of Italy and have been visiting since they opened last year. The […]

Single Origin Macau is one of my favourite coffee spots for a pitstop on long day walks with the lovely Aromasysabores – my explorer partner in crime. They take coffee super seriously here, the kind of reverence I’ve very seldom seen in Asia. The owner Keith is a local Macanese, and the only European certified […]

Here is my current favourite hangout named after Franz Kafka, the genius behind those existential dark books. The eponymous name, however bears no semblance nor have any reference to the late author, the Macanese owners simply love Kafka and decided to name their Café after him.
