Cantonese cuisine is a fine art.
Preparation of Cantonese dishes requires a great deal of skill and expertise as the flavours of Cantonese cuisine must be well-balanced, not greasy whilst ensuring that its primary ingredients are the stars of the dish.
Situated on the 5th floor of Singapore’s iconic National Gallery and led by Master Chef Chan Kung Lai, Yàn specialises in authentic Cantonese cuisine that’s artfully prepared and presented. It is the perfect place for birthday celebrations, business luncheons and family gatherings!

We are such big fans of TungLok Group’s arsenal of restaurants and one of the places we frequent is TungLok Teahouse for their delectable, handcrafted dim sum. This casual dining restaurant has extremely competitive prices—which means you can always pop by to satisfy your dim sum cravings even if you are on a budget!
TungLok Teahouse at Square Two recently underwent a transformation: From a retro old-school Chinese Teahouse, to a place which revolutionizes the way dim sum is served. Hint: there is automation and interaction involved here.
After all these years, it remains as one of our all-time favourite places for reliable dim sum. READ ON

Okinawa is home to an enclave of good restaurants and cafes.
While Japanese food is widely popular, Okinawan cuisine is slightly under the radar, and it is a shame because they are unique in its own rights. The cuisine is highly influenced by its region, hence a mix of Japanese and Chinese.
When visiting Okinawa, you have to try both their local eateries as well as renown cafes and restaurants for a comprehensive idea of what the Japanese island-city has to offer. Here, we present to you the 11 Restaurants & Cafes in Okinawa You Must Try.
Thai food is versatile, a myriad of flavours, and generally a whole lot of fun for chefs. And Rochor Thai’s Chef Owner Joel Ong—who lived a year in Thailand to learn about the Central Thai cuisine—was determined to bring the best of Thai dishes to Singapore.
While most Thai eateries and restaurants in Singapore serve more North-Eastern Thai fare, Rochor Thai specialises in Central Thai Cuisine—which is a lot more balanced, less salty and no less delicious—and it does not use any MSG at all.
Rochor Thai prides itself in its meticulous preparation and the use of fresh ingredients to ensure the authenticity of its food, with flavours found nowhere else in Singapore.
Making his mark in 2012 at Rochor Centre, Rochor Thai’s inception saw overwhelming success and has brought them to where they are today. Today, they are located at Novena Regency, with a more modern and swanky look. They have rocketed to the top of our list and is now among our favourite Thai restaurants.
From now until 15 March 2017, simply quote ‘ladyironchef’ to enjoy 30% off your bill—valid from 6pm to 10pm on Mondays to Thursdays, except PHs.
Okinawa is not quite the Japan you know. Ths island pretty much sits on its own, has its own cultures and expressions, and food that is unique to them.
Because of its geographical location, Okinawan food is very much influenced by the Chinese culture, while still retaining authentic Japan elements and flavours. As for its beverages, it is no secret that Okinawa is home to some of the best beers and liquor in Asia.
A recent trip to Okinawa had us discovering the many wonders of its food scene, and every single item listed in this guide to 10 MUST-TRY Local Food in Okinawa wowed us in its own ways.
Be unique, #BeOkinawa.
