The folks behind The Naked Finn have introduced BurgerLabo which takes over the space of the now-defunt Nekkid, rebranding the small bar-and-bites eatery into a spot for gourmet burgers in Gillman Barracks.
Their new diner is conceptualised around their winning Basic Burger that is anything but basic, given that it was perfected after numerous experimentations since it was first launched in late 2015.
Seoul is an urbanised, metropolitan city that attracts lots of tourists annually. With the impact of Hallyu or the Korean Wave, the awareness of Korean cultural products has increased immensely, and so has the amount of tourism.
However, with a large amount of interest garnered towards modernised Korean culture, the Korean traditions and heritage may have taken a backseat.
But let’s not forget the 5 grand palaces in Seoul, all of which create the most interesting contrast and backdrop against the skyscrapers of the urban city. You shouldn’t visit just because they look great for Instagram; they are so full of history and cultural heritage.
Don the traditional Korean dress—known as Hanbok—and you’ll gain free admission into the palaces. Admission is also free for all on Culture Day, which falls on the last Wednesday of every month. These Five Grand Palaces of Seoul are a must-see when you’re in the capital.
Housing many relics from the Vietnam war—including real-life tanks, choppers, artillery and ammunition, the War Remnants Museum is consistently popular with tourists, particularly Western tourists.
Few museums around the world convey the harrowing and brutal effects of war so powerfully and so accurately. In fact, many of the tools, machines and torture devices of the war are well preserved here, painting a dreadful story of the unthinkable atrocities that happened during the war.
There are many documents and photographs shown in the museum that may prove to be rather difficult to stomach. But for what it’s worth (a ticket costs just 15,000 VND per foreigner), we dare admit that the museum is truly worth spending half a day at, for what you’re likely to find, learn and experience is truly unlike any other.
An innocuous outdoor eatery perched in the middle of Clarke Quay’s favourite eateries and bars, Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar is one of the best places to fill your stomachs with—be it post-clubbing or for lunch.
Specialising in delectable Sichuan cuisine, they cater to caters to meat-lovers with their Northern-style grilled meat and vegetable skewers, but we felt the real star of the shop was definitely their la mian.
Let’s be real. With the kind of weather we have in Singapore, we can have ice cream every day.
A hidden gem among the countless maid agencies, massage parlours and tuition centres in Katong Shopping Centre lies The Humble Scoop, an ice cream parlour serving up in-house churned ice cream.
Tucked away in a quiet part of the basement, they pride themselves on locally inspired ice cream flavours. What really intrigued us were the names of the flavours on display. With names such as Orh Haw (hawthorn berry), Orh-Bee-Good (pulut hitam) and In-Kueh-Dible (salted coconut & gula melaka) that only us Singaporeans will understand, it definitely made us want to find out more.
When King Albert’s Park is mentioned, people normally think of the good ol’ days when McDonalds occupied the area. However, now, the place has been completely revamped into an up-and-coming mall space.
Just a walk through King Albert’s Park Mall, you will see several cafes and restaurants, including a new cinema. One such place that caught our eye was the sleek and simple Camaca cafe.
Camaca is a sugar-free dessert cafe, serving up indulgent treats that come without the guilt, along with a wide selection of single-origin coffees.
