The East of Singapore is where one will find plenty of hidden treasures. While there are many concept cafes out there, To-gather Cafe in Bedok (next to Fengshan Market) is one gem where you can unwind from work.
Walk into the cafe and you will notice that cursive writings of inspirational quotes and song lyrics fill up the walls in the most elegant manner. There is also a wall featuring post-it notes with messages and compliments penned down personally by customers.
Inspired by an all-time favourite childhood song “The More We Get Together”, the owners of To-gather cafe aims to create a homey ambience concept where people gather together over a good meal and artisan coffees. The cafe offers delectable signature dishes and the most flavourful desserts to end your meal with.
The best part? Most of the main courses are affordably priced under S$12. To-gather Cafe is one place where you can have a good meal without breaking the bank.
We all need that quick pick-me-up, especially when work days can be so draggy. If you happen to work around One-North, you are in luck because there is a cosy cafe there that serves pretty decent coffee!
Envy Coffee is a 5-minute walk away from One-North MRT station, nestled in the office district of Fusionopolis. Because of its convenient location, it can get rather busy during lunch hour but guess what? You can make reservations prior to your visit. Otherwise, you can simply order your beverage for takeaway.

As you take a stroll down Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, you will be greeted with a plethora of snack stations, eateries and coveted sushi restaurants. There are a number of big names here, one to look out for is Sushi Zanmai—a popular choice among both locals and tourists.
Despite being a sushi chain, Sushi Zanmai is still commendable. The ingredients are extremely fresh and each sushi is intricately made by the team of expert sushi chefs behind the sushi counter. You can even catch the chefs in action up close if you manage to snag a sushi counter seat.
Sushi Zanmai’s sushi platters are well loved because they are considerably inexpensive for the amount and quality. Our tummies were certainly satisfied after gobbling them up. Here is why you need to visit Sushi Zanmai.

The 400,000-square-meter wide new venue used to be a gas plant, and reported traces of soil contamination have raised alarm bells.The uncertainty of Tsukiji Fish Market’s future location has led to plenty of repercussions, especially for the fish merchants.

The restaurant takes immense pride in serving the “best damn crab cioppino” and if you look around, you would soon realise that is exactly what everyone came for. For the uninitiated, the cioppino is a classic San Francisco seafood stew invented and subsequently popularised by the Italian fishermen who worked at Fisherman’s wharf in the 1930s.
It is an undeniable fact that food fads in Singapore come and go at a rapid pace. As with all fads, many do not survive the test of time and they die down quietly before you even notice it.
