Cold Stone Creamery is closing in Singapore after 10 years of operation. Cold Stone Creamery proudly dubs themselves as ‘Ice Cream Innovators’. Their ice cream is freshly made on the spot—smooth, rich and creamy.
At the same time, the popular ice cream parlour is also known for providing great entertainment value when it comes to their signature ‘ice cream toss’ dance and they throw pretty great private parties too—think party food, adorable character-themed ice cream cakes and colourful party decorations.
All outlets in Singapore will operate until 31 January 2020. We are fans of Cold Stone Creamery’s ice cream and it is sad to hear that they are closing in Singapore.
Hui Lau Shan is a household name in Hong Kong and is well-loved for their wide range of desserts and drinks, especially mango desserts.
Their presence in Hong Kong is quite possibly the strongest for you would find an outlet (or two, or more) at every neighbourhood. It is also something that we always eat whenever we are in the Pearl of the Orient.
Hui Lau Shan was once in Singapore and that was about a decade ago. But they didn’t make it then, and rumours had it that it was way too pricey and the standards were not there. But we do not dwell on the past; we rejoice because they are returning in 2020!
Machi Machi is Jay Chou’s favourite bubble tea brand. And Machi Machi is coming to Singapore!
Dubbed the ‘God of Cheese Tea’ by the Taiwanese media, Machi Machi is set to open in Singapore in January 2020. Like FINA-FREAKING-LY!
We’ve never felt like we needed another bubble tea brand in Singapore, until after seeing how Jay Chou excessively professes his love for Machi Machi’s pearl milk tea and how he even springs surprise visits at the shops whenever he is in a city with a Machi Machi outlet.
So what’s in for Machi Machi Singapore? Here, we share everything we know. Remember: you saw it here at Ladyironchef first.
Taipei’s Ningxia Night Market is coming to Singapore from 16 Jan to 9 Feb 2020!
Asian Night Market will be featuring more than 30 food stalls directly from Taipei’s Ningxia Night Market. Ningxia Night Market may not be as well known as the other famous night markets in Taipei—such as Shilin Night Market, Shida Night Market and Raohe Night Market—but it offers just as fantastic street food as the larger ones do and it is one we always visit when we are in Taipei.
Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodles is an all-time favourite of ours all these years and if you haven’t tried it, you’re indeed missing out in life.
Hawker food is of ultimate comfort to us, and what makes it even better is seeing young people run the stalls. It is a dying trade, sadly, for being a hawker means very long working hours and physically-taxing duties.
Perhaps, that’s what made Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodles a stand-out; the couple running the stall is only 30 years young! And they’ve totally nailed the well-loved fried prawn noodles. We’ll go out on a limb and say that this is the best Hokkien Mee in Singapore.

Talk about tonkatsu in Tokyo and everyone has their favourites. Some like it casual and fuss-free, some like it more elaborate with a myriad of cuts to choose from.
For us, a good tonkatsu meal can be both (depending on the amount of time we have for that day) but some memories stay in our hearts for always—that is a good meal at Butagumi. We’ve tried numerous tonkatsu restaurants in Tokyo and the experience at Butagumi is one that never fails, no matter which time of the year we visit.
It is also little wonder why this restaurant is often at the top of mind among both locals and visitors to Tokyo, for their dedication to tonkatsu is definitely a notch higher than your regular tonkatsu restaurants.
By luck, we stumbled upon Katsukichi Botaijyu Tonkatsu in Shibuya, and it turned out to be a gem!
The restaurant is located in the basement. The wooden stairs will lead you to a very traditional and cosy-looking space that will instantly give you a good feel about your meal.
In short, tonkatsu is a Japanese-style pork chop or cutlet and we are always up for a good tonkatsu meal. There are several outlets in Tokyo but here’s sharing our experience from the Shibuya one.
