Biku—known for its traditional Indonesian classics and afternoon tea—is one of our all-time favourite Indonesian restaurants in Seminyak, Bali. While the naysayers may argue that Biku is touristy and only caters to the foreigners, the food and ambience are excellent; it is a place that we always visit every time we are in Bali.
Castella cakes are extremely popular in Taiwan and the hype has recently been brought over to Singapore shores since the arrival of Le Castella and Ah Mah Homemade Cake. Taiwan’s Original Cake is the latest Castella cake shop to open in Singapore.
For those who have not been keeping up with this craze, Castella cakes are actually extremely soft and bouncy Japanese sponge cakes that are moist on the inside. These cakes are usually made from simple ingredients such as flour, eggs, sugar and starch syrup. Put the ingredients to bake and the result is one fluffy, jiggly Castella cake.
While the waiting time may sound totally absurd to some (be prepared to queue more than an hour), there are many who are willing to queue for hours just to have a taste of the sponge cakes. We braved the crowd and tried them personally in search for the best Castella cake in Singapore.

Popular Hong Kong congee stall, Mui Kee, has opened a pop-up restaurant in Singapore. In partnership with Les Amis Group, the Hong Kong institution will start a six month-long pop-up at Casa Verde in Singapore Botanic Gardens.
Mui Kee itself has a long and rich heritage, but what draws its customer fan base is the unique taste and texture of the congee itself. Using fish broth, pork bones and other ingredients like century egg, this congee takes comfort food to a whole new level. Those familiar with the name would know just how amazing their fish broth porridge is, and for those who are not, just imagine silky-smooth, velvety congee that brims with flavour.
This is comfort food like you have never had before, and if you ever needed a solid pick-me-up on a cold rainy day (or any day) then Mui Kee is definitely one to consider.
