It was yet another day fun-filled day with 20 of our readers who joined us for a Food Journey hosted by Millenia Walk. We had a taste of three restaurants’ signature items and new dishes, and we shared our opinions and input with one another.
When foodies get together, everyone just forgets our worries and pig out together. We ventured into Fika Swedish Café & Bistro, elemen and Tart Blanc for a diversified taste of all that Millenia Walk has to offer.
With so many restaurants and different varieties of food to choose from at Millenia Walk, we trust our readers had a good time there, just like we did! Thank you to all who took time off to spend your Saturday with us; we couldn’t be happier to meet each and every one of you!
Try to contain your excitement because Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Beach Road is going to re-introduce the ever popular ‘For the Love of Roasts’ buffet this year due to popular demand. With last year’s overwhelming response, the hotel has decided to redo their exciting buffet promotion this year from 5 October to 29 November 2015.
This is a party for carnivores, and a time for all of you to gather at Plaza Brasserie. Want some meats? Treat yourselves to this incredibly thrilling display of various meats that include Wagyu Sirloin, Black Angus Tenderloin, Wagyu D-Rump, New Zealand Boneless Lamb Leg, Braised Beef Tail, Hungarian-bred Mangalica Pork Collar/Neck and Rosemary Chicken.
Does the line-up not sound exhilarating already?
The Coffee Academics has opened its first outlet in Singapore at Scotts Square. If you have been to Hong Kong, chances are that you have either seen or heard of The Coffee Academics, voted one of the best coffee shops in the world by international publications such as Vogue, CNNGo and Buzzfeed.
The Coffee Academics’ full flagship store in Singapore is slated to open early December 2015 at Scotts Square. Meanwhile, it has set up a pop-up kiosk just outside their soon-to-be-opened permanent location. And by the way, The Coffee Academics sits within the premise of the new OnPedder, which takes up the entire level 2 of Scotts Square.
The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore has unveiled an exciting new dining concept – Colony – that will excite all epicurean foodies alike. Introducing Colony with a gourmet buffet that is set to impress even the most discerning taste buds with its mouthwatering spread of Chinese, Indonesian, Indian, Malaysian, Western and local dishes. .
Now, just when you think Colony is “just another buffet line-up in Singapore”, read on and you will realize that it is like no other. Set to transport you back in time to when Singapore was founded, the culinary journey at Colony will remind you of our heritage
The eight different conservatory kitchens take centre stage at the buffet, giving it a very theatrical effect; diners can watch their food being prepared freshly in front of them and each ‘live’ station showcases one of the many different ethnic cuisines that has shaped Singapore over the past decades.
The laksa with homemade lobster balls are to die for, and we had endless helpings of the crepe suzettes. Behold, the 10 highlights of our experience at Colony.
Truth be told, we were really upset when November 8 at Upper Thomson shut its doors a few months ago. Thankfully, the same people behind November 8 has opened a brand new cafe & bar concept in the same Thomson V One Building and it is called Five by Five (5 x 5).
The 2-week old casual establishment is decked in an all-white interior with minimalistic wooden furnishings. Five by Five is one of the rare few cafes in Singapore that opens till midnight daily (except for Tuesdays).
Emporium Shokuhin has finally landed on our shores and this massive Japanese Megamart is set to dominate the Japanese supermarket industry in Singapore. It also includes eight different Japanese dining concepts within the gargantuan premises, as the store itself spans over 34,000 sq ft.
The Daily Roundup at The Working Capitol – one of the hottest co-working spaces in Singapore - serves a simple purpose of offering fresh food and coffee. The menu is conceptualised by Chef Bruno Menard, and the star dish has to be their great selection of both sweet and savoury crepes. We love the space for its free wifi and minimalistic interior.
Great ambience, laid back vibes; that is what you will get at The Daily Roundup.
The enclave of cafes and eateries at Tiong Bahru has been expanding at full force and it does not seem to be stopping any time soon. Late last year, a new addition – Whisk Café – has joined the hipster neighbourhood and the rest is history.
White seems to be the new black for most up-and-coming cafes and we are sure that frequent cafe hoppers will agree with us. Whisk Cafe’s interiors are completely decked out in white; white walls, white pillars, white tables, white stools. You get the gist.

The Butchers Club Burger – widely known as the best burger joint in Hong Kong – is opening its first restaurant in Singapore at Clarke Quay on 2 October 2015.
We had one of the best, if not the best, dry-aged steaks when we attended The Butchers Club’s private dinner in Hong Kong last year. Boy, are we so looking forward to the launch of The Butchers Club in Singapore!
If you are exploring the premises of Jalan Pisang, do not be surprised by a snaking queue since that is possibly the queue for one of the growing cupcake establishments in Singapore, fondly known as Fluff Bakery.
Not only is this takeaway-only halal bakery a winner among the Muslim crowd, the humble confectionary has also attracted patrons far and wide with their supposedly to-die-for cupcakes. Our verdict? After sinking our teeth into the fluffy and moist cupcakes while scrambling to lick off its icing sugar – we were sold.
Fans of MUJI, the popular Japanese concept store, rejoice as they bring you something even bigger and better. Café & Meal MUJI – the first MUJI cafe in Singapore is now open at The Paragon. The Japanese cafe is adjacent to their current merchandise store in the mall, and we were most certainly thrilled by their arrival.
For those who spot a snaking queue, we urge you to join the crowd if you are one who are often seeking unique cafe experiences; it will be worth your while. Here’s what you can expect from Café & Meal MUJI at Paragon.
It is here – Singapore’s first DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe, and it is massive. Walking towards this huge cafe is like unveiling a pot of gold – we were amazed, not just by its gargantuan size, but by all the superhero murals and life-sized figurines.
Any fan of DC’s superheroes will be flocking here very soon and we foresee that this cafe will get even more crowded during the weekends and peak hours. The DC Cafe has a dedicated takeaway counter with a mini seating area just for cakes, snacks and drinks, and another bigger space for savoury food.
