Everyone thinks of cha chaan teng when it comes to casual dining in Hong Kong. For the uninitiated, cha chaan teng is a no-pretense, fuss-free local eatery in Hong Kong that serves comfort food at affordable prices. These local diners are everywhere in Hong Kong and you will always find locals dining in those nondescript outlets.
A cha chaan teng is not known for service, unfortunately. It is really a place where you eat and go, or do a few quick readings of your newspapers. That said, the essence lies in savouring a moment of local delicacy amidst the humdrum of the city life.
A trip to Hong Kong is not complete without eating at Cha Chaan Teng. Here is our guide to the best cha chaan teng in Hong Kong that we can always count on for a good local meal.
There is nothing not to love about Japan—the beautiful landscapes, rich history, scrumptious local delicacies and exciting seasonal activities to take part in. Japan is a country that is worth visiting countless times because there is just so much to see and do there.
When we talk about Japan, most of you would inevitably think of the more popular destinations such as Tokyo, Osaka and Hokkaido. For your next trip to the land of the rising sun, why not take the road less traveled and venture to Kyushu Island instead?
As Japan’s third largest island, Kyushu is a spectacular place that is known for its scenic countryside, stunning geographical formations, bubbling hot springs and friendly locals. It is the perfect getaway from the hubbub of city life and is where you will find like-minded nature lovers.
If you are ready for a week of adventure and fun at Kyushu Island, read our 5D4N Kyushu Itinerary to know the best places to visit, things to do and local food to try. We know you will love the place as much as we did!
As the trend of Korean culture continues to rise in Singapore over the recent few years, Korean food has become a big part of our daily lives. You can find plenty of Korean restaurants and marts all over the country, with Korean-everything that we all love.
Binggrae is a popular food brand in South Korea and their desserts are especially delicious. Ever since we tried their Pangtoa Blueberry Ice Cream Cake and Mango Bingsu, we have been big fans of their creations. The Pangtoa Red Velvet Ice Cream Cake with Cream Cheese and Green Tea Flavoured Ice Cream With Sweetened Red Bean Paste in Fish-Shaped Wafer are just two of the many colourful dessert products in Binggrae’s extensive line.
The best part about these ice cream products is its inexpensive price tag. You can easily grab one of these in Shine Korea, Hao Mart, Sol Mart and selected provision shops islandwide and enjoy them in the comfort of your home after a hearty dinner.
Here’s what we love about the newest additions—Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwich and fish-shaped Matcha Waffle.
There are countless people in the world who admire the brilliance of Japanese food culture and there is no reason why anyone should not be. In Japan, food is not something to be taken lightly; farmers are extremely attentive to their crops, chefs are particular about their culinary techniques and the country is at the top of the game when it comes to innovative food technologies.
The increase of importance placed on Japanese food products has made it crucial for all restauranteurs and F&B professionals to keep up with the latest seasonal ingredients, innovative products, and new-to-market brands if they want to stay relevant in the industry. And there is no better place to do that than Food Japan 2017, which runs from 26 to 28 Oct 2017 at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre Halls 401-402.
The sixth edition of Food Japan is where visitors can expect over 200 exhibitors offering 3,000 food-related products. As ASEAN’s biggest Japanese food and beverage event, Food Japan 2017 will focus on Functional Food and Elder Care Food amongst a myriad of authentic Japanese ingredients and food, masterclasses, unique products and specialties from over 37 Japanese prefectures.
Although this is primarily a trade show, Japan Food 2017 will open its doors to members of the public on the third day of the event (28 Oct). This is one Japanese F&B Fair which you do not want to miss out on! READ ON

The roast goose institution sits on Stanley Street in Central Hong Kong and is infamous for their atrocious service. The group of staff is some of the most impatient and rudest around; you have been warned.
But people from all over the world still brave the “harsh treatment” for their roast goose. Would you do the same? Well, here’s what we think.
