As much as Singapore remains the foodie capital of the world, there is still much that our country’s diverse culinary landscape lacks in.

From tasty nasi padang that promises to fire up your palate, an age-old bakery with the best banana cake in the country (supposedly) to good ol’ local breakfast dishes, here is our Johor Bahru day trip food itinerary.

When BAKE Cheese Tart first arrived in Singapore we, as a nation, were obsessed. Their first stall here opened at the basement food hall of Ion Orchard with a second branch in Westgate that quietly closed down.
For a long time, BAKE Cheese Tart had just the one flavour—without even any limited-time seasonal other—yet the queues for it stayed insanely long. Many claimed that the stringently measured 7cm in diameter tart came as good as did their original stall in Japan.
Despite the unforgettable first bite, the hype for the Hokkaido treat gradually died down. Following the announcement of the opening of its sister brand, CROQUANT CHOU ZAKUZAKU, BAKE Cheese Tart will be closing its outlet at ION Orchard to exit the Singapore market.

The legendary Ichiran is finally coming to Singapore! From 3 to 20 October 2019, Ichiran will be having a pop-up in Singapore at Takashimaya Square as part of the third edition of annual ramen festival Ramen Revolution at the Japan Food Matsuri event.
If you’ve ever been to Japan, you’ll know that ramen is a must-try item; leaving Japan without slurping down a bowl of this goodness is an absolute crime! There are a plethora of ramen shops scattered across Japan but one of the more famous brands that is high up on everyone’s list is the well-loved Ichiran.
Ichiran has been widely accepted as the god of tonkotsu ramen and they definitely set a high benchmark for a classic bowl of ramen. We are so damn excited that Ichiran Ramen is finally having a pop-up in Singapore (and hopefully a permanent shop next?!). That means that you no longer have to book a plane ticket to Japan just to satisfy your cravings for a bowl of the best ramen in the world.
Our team joined the queue at 10am during the opening on 3 October 2019 and we waited for almost 2 hours for our Ichiran Ramen! The queue is expected to get even longer, so get there early if you are planning to try it.
