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.
Monnani Kwabaeggi is set to open in Singapore in the last week of April.

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!
For the love of all things, breaded, fried and golden, few come close to the taste and textural satisfaction we get from Japanese tonkatsu. What’s to hate? It’s everything you could ever want on a plate from the crispiness of its breaded exterior to the moist, meaty flavour that hides within.
While East Coast Road may seem a tad far off for tonkatsu—given that you can easily find it everywhere nowadays—Katsuya is one tonkatsu-focused restaurant worth making a trip down for.
The restaurant—helmed by Chef Kervin who has several years of experience cooking Japanese cuisine and even a Japan-issued chef license to boot—ensures that everything is done properly. They do not use MSG and lard in their cooking and the sheer deliciousness of their food is solely dependant on the technique and freshness of each individual ingredient.
