Hanabi festivals (or fireworks festivals) are integral to Japanese summers. This long-standing tradition is held practically in Japan every weekend for a few months each year country-wide. In addition to the fireworks show, locals can enjoy a selection of Japanese snacks and drinks that many stalls known as Yatai offer.
It’s no wonder locals look forward to this breathtaking spectacle every year! Here in Singapore’s SingPost Centre, we have our own Hanabi Food Festival too; you’ll definitely be able to experience the summer vibes and Yatai food as if you were in Japan.
From 06 to 18 June 2019, experience the Hanabi Food Festival by Isetan at SingPost Centre Main Atrium Level 1 from 11 am to 9 pm daily. Here are some highlights to look out for. Itadakimasu!
The best Chai Latte is one where sweet and spicy is not too overwhelming but at the same time milky enough to balance the strong flavours out. For the uninitiated, Chai Latte is black tea infused with the aromatic goodness of spices and herbs and finished with steamed milk. This might not be everyone’s cup of tea and may very well be an acquired taste.
A staple in most Australian coffee shops, Chai Latte is not common in Singapore and it is even tougher to find a good one. Fuelled by our love for Chai Latte, we have made it our mission to suss out the best Chai Lattes in Singapore. Without further ado, here are the best Chai Lattes in Singapore according to an enthusiast.
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.
