Fiji is concrete evidence that Paradise on Earth does exist. The skies are blue, the waters are superbly clear and the sceneries all around are breathtakingly picturesque—but the best of all, the people there are genuine, hospitable and jovial.
Fiji is definitely worthy to be on everyone’s bucket list. While everyone knows it as the ideal destination for that luxurious beach getaway, we had the privilege to travel beyond just the beaches and explore the lesser-known aspects of Fiji.
There are many beautiful destinations out there and Fiji is most certainly one of them. Here are 12 reasons to love Fiji and why you should start saving up to tick this off your bucket list.
Situated just a stone’s throw away from the ever-so-popular Blk 85 Fengshan Food Centre at Bedok North is a newly-opened carnival-themed café, Sir Stamford Waffles, which serves waffles, ice cream, coffee and more.
Do not be confused by the name of this café—Sir Stamford Raffles did not open this café—but rather, the people behind Hatter Street Bakehouse and Café did.
Situated in Alumni Medical Centre along College Road is Ka-Soh Restaurant, a heritage restaurant which has been around for the past few decades. They are known to serve one of the best prawn paste chickens and fish head noodles in Singapore, so much that they were listed in the Michelin guide for the 2017 Bib Gourmand Awards.
Ka-Soh Restaurant started out in 1939 as a pushcart stall and now has almost 80 years of history under their belt. They currently have 5 branches worldwide—2 in Singapore, 2 in Malaysia and 1 in Indonesia.

Martin Zwerts—popular frites shop from Netherlands—is opening its first ever flagship store outside of Europe in Singapore in the last week of April 2018.
Established in 1948, Martin Zwerts Potato Daddy has been widely recognised for their incredible family signature recipe of frites (fries) and remains as a hotspot for tourists visiting Holland after 70 years.
Frying all the way from Holland to Holland Village, Martin Zwerts presents us the taste of Eindhoven and is set to open its first outlet in Singapore in Holland Village on the 27th of April, the same day as Netherlands King’s Day.
If you are craving for authentic Korean food after having binge-watched a whole series of K-dramas, Cho-won Garden Korean Restaurant might just be the perfect place to head to.
Situated just a 3-minute walk away from Tanjong Pagar MRT station along Peck Seah Street, Cho-won Garden Korean Restaurant offers some of the best Korean cuisines in Singapore. They serve a tantalising collection of Korean fare, ranging from barbecue meats to stews and Korean fried chicken.
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.
Bringing you the authentic tastes of Korea in a posh setting is Kimchi Korean restaurant, a diner situated in Suntec City Convention Tower. This restaurant was highly raved about a few years back for their “handsome Korean boss who looked like a celebrity”, Haden Hee, who worked as a part-time model and actor.
That aside, Kimchi Korean Restaurant is well-known for their reasonably priced Korean cuisine in a refined setting. With their kitchen being manned by 100% South Korean chefs, the food at Kimchi Korean Restaurant is as authentic as it can get.
Here’s everything we loved about Kimchi Korean Restaurant, which includes free-flow side dishes with every meal.
