Soek Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe is a hidden cafe that is situated far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The owner is a vintage bike collector who proudly displays his beautiful vintage bicycles all around the cafe. Needless to say, we were all in awe of the cafe’s lovely interior.
Besides that, having a meal at this bike cafe is a unique experience in itself. Diners are able to watch private airplanes take off from Seletar Airport which is located just beside the bike cafe. How cool is that?!
However as one of the most ulu cafes in Singapore, is it really worth the effort to make all your way there for a meal? Well, read on to find out more! READ ON

Shinsen Fish Market is a seafood haven in Bangkok, and it is a new addition to Bangkok’s ever-happening food scene. Just a few months shy of its first birthday, Shinsen Fish Market is supposedly inspired by and modelled after Taipei’s Addiction Aquatic Developments.

Take a whiff in the bustling night markets—in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan—and you would detect an unbearable odour permeating through the bazaar.
The cringe-worthy stench comes from a traditional Chinese delicacy called Stinky Tofu and it is actually an all-time favourite delicacy. The Stinky Tofu is akin to Singaporeans’ beloved durian, where an acquired taste is required to enjoy this snack.
So what exactly is a Stinky Tofu? Well, this street snack is essentially a fermented bean curd that is available in a variety of cooking methods and it can be served raw, deep-fried or steamed. For foreigners and first-timers, this dish could be an episode of Fear Factor. But should you be daring enough to overcome the overwhelming redolence, a culinary treat awaits.
