OUE Downtown Gallery is one of our favourite hangout spots in the heart of town—there are endless dining options—such as The Autobus, Lunar Coffee Brewers and Omotesando Koffee—that leaves us spoilt for choice when we are feeling peckish.
Adding onto the long list of dining options is a relatively new vegan dining concept that has popped up in the mall—HRVST. Pronounced as ‘harvest’, this is one stylish cafe that will catch the fancy of all health and gym junkies.
The kitchen is helmed by a pair of partner chefs, Addis Tan and Dylan who have 20 years of experience working for established F&B names such as Tippling Club, Esquina and Cheek by Jowl.
Having been in business for more than 150 years, Historic Hahndorf Inn is an established restaurant serving up the most authentic German grub you can find in Adelaide Hills. The dining establishment is both a restaurant and bar that comes with their own open fire places that keeps the place warm during winter.
The restaurant takes pride in serving food made from only quality ingredients that are sourced locally and also from suppliers in Bavaria and Austria. Till today, the family-owned business is still managed by fifth generation of the Holmes family—so diners can expect the menu to be forward looking, yet traditional to keep the original flavours intact.
Drop by Hahndorf Inn with an empty stomach—you will need it for the huge sharing platters of meats and their refreshing Bavarian beers. READ ON
Established in 1992, Orchard Hotel Singapore’s signature restaurant Hua Ting has built a firm reputation as one of the top Cantonese fine dining restaurants in Singapore. Many spirits were shaken at the news of its closure some months ago but finally, after an extensive four-month facelift, Hua Ting Restaurant returns with a sophisticated new look and an improved menu to match.
At the helm of this grande dame is Masterchef Chung Lap Fai, and along with his team of veteran Chinese chefs, a brand new menu is introduced—one that aims to impart traditional flavours in a contemporary fashion. Look forward to a myriad of intriguing new dishes and creative tea-and-food pairing menus alongside the restaurant’s signatures and crowd-pleasers, all plated and presented in a sleek, artistic fashion.
New to Hua Ting Restaurant’s menu is their Smoked Peking Duck infused with Aged Pu-Erh served with Yuzu Sauce. Aromatic, succulent and everything you could ever want in a Peking duck dish (and more), it is one of those dishes that you’ll find yourself hankering over for days.
We are definitely loving Hua Ting Restaurant even more than we already did!

If you think it is impossible to have your favourite hawker food delivered to your doorstep, think again. Most of the time, we dread going to hawker centres during peak hours as it is too crowded and the snaking queues in the sweltering heat get pretty unbearable. And then, there are some days when we just want to cosy up in our PJ’s, eat char kway teow in bed while we Netflix.
Guess what? Our favourite food delivery company, honestbee, now offers an on-demand delivery service where you can order from multiple stalls within a hawker centre with just a press of a button! Yay!
This delivery service is available on weekdays and weekends from 11am – 2pm and 6 – 9pm at selected hawker centres. Say goodbye to searching high and low for seats during peak hours and hello to a longer lunch break for the regular office worker. Food delivery cannot get any better than this.

Singapore’s cafe scene is booming, to say the least, and it is only growing more rampant with new cafes sprouting out everywhere. Yet, satisfying as artisanal coffee may be, a simple cuppa from a cafe often comes with a hefty price attached to it. It is during times like these that we are immensely thankful for establishments like Hangar Coffee Express.
Tucked away in Maxwell food centre, this new coffee shop is bent on serving up quality brews at slightly more affordable prices. Have you ever had a brewed flat white, let alone a macchiato or even a mocha at a hawker centre? Probably not, but now you can. Priding themselves with being the only hawker drink stall to have a LaMarzocco espresso machine, what you can expect—whether you’re a coffee aficionado or not—is a perfect shot of espresso every time.
The Hangar Coffee Express aims to bring the Melbourne-style café experience to office executives and tourists alike. They officially open for business today so if you happen to be around the area, you know where to get your caffeine fix!
