Among the slew of cafes, supper spots and restaurants scattered all over bustling Upper Thomson Road, Japanese fare is perhaps one of the few rarities to find there unless you consider Tomoe Japanese Cuisine or even Sushi Tei in Thomson Plaza which is both a tad pricier in comparison.
New to the bustling food enclave, taking over what used to be Nunsongyee Korean Dessert Cafe, Maneko Japanese Restaurant is a cosy, 30-seater eatery that serves quick, fuss-free Japanese delights ranging from sashimi, sushi, donburi, soba, udon and a huge selection of sides.
Nestled in the folds of the unassuming Golden Mile Tower is Mitsuba, a humble Japanese eatery that has just opened its doors recently. It is easy to get lost in Golden Mile Tower and it may take you awhile to locate the stall, but we promise that this eatery is worth the hunt.
Mitsuba whips up a tantalising array of Japanese fare, with lots of affordable options. Here is what we love about the hidden gem that all Japanese food lovers who have a tight budget must know about.
Sunday brunches have a very special place in our hearts because it is the most important meals over the weekend; bigger than breakfast and more enticing than lunch, there is really nothing not to love about a good Sunday brunch.
Nestled in Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, Melt Café is one of the best choices if you are in the Marina Bay area. Their Sunday Champagne Brunch is simply out of the world—we are talking about endless gourmet food, including bubbles and fun in-house entertainment for everyone in the family.
From fresh oysters of different varieties, premium sashimi from the Japanese counter, a carving station that will satisfy the carnivores to their ever popular Indian cuisine and an outdoor barbecue grill, this is one champagne brunch that is deserving of an encore.
Malamala Beach Club in Fiji is the world’s first ever island beach club and it occupies an entire island. Lined with coconut trees and surrounded by soft white sand, this place is the ultimate paradise for one to escape from the hustle and bustle of the fast-paced city life that awaits us back home and indulge in a multitude of water sports.
Make sure to save a day in your Fiji itinerary for a day trip to Malamala Beach Club because it might just be the highlight of your vacation.
Johor Bahru’s progressive cafe scene is seeing a large number of Singaporeans making plans to visit these concept cafes over the weekends since many are easily accessible by walking or public transport from the immigration checkpoint.
On our latest trip to Johor Bahru, we made our way to what is possibly our favourite cafe there thus far—Mok Mok Brunch & Bistro. Just a 15-minute drive from the checkpoint, the cafe is where you escape from the mayhem of city life for a refreshing change as it is decked out in greens and surrounded by glass walls for natural sunlight to filter in.
At Mok Mok Brunch & Bistro, guests can also look forward to fresh produce that are sourced from local farms and an exciting range of rice bowls and aesthetically pleasing desserts that are sure to impress even the most discerning foodies. READ ON

Martin Zwerts—popular frites shop from Netherlands—is opening its first ever flagship store outside of Europe in Singapore in the last week of April 2018.
Established in 1948, Martin Zwerts Potato Daddy has been widely recognised for their incredible family signature recipe of frites (fries) and remains as a hotspot for tourists visiting Holland after 70 years.
Frying all the way from Holland to Holland Village, Martin Zwerts presents us the taste of Eindhoven and is set to open its first outlet in Singapore in Holland Village on the 27th of April, the same day as Netherlands King’s Day.
South Korea’s ever-so-popular street food snack stall, Monnani Kwabaeggi, is making its international debut in Singapore! Kkwabaeggi, also known as Korean ugly pretzels, are essentially doughnuts made using glutinous rice flour dough and twisted to give them odd-looking shapes.
They are deep-fried to give it a golden brown and crisp exterior, then after coated with cinnamon powder and sugar. Mildy sweet, fluffy, and spongy, these snacks bear great similarity to churros.
