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!
KFC Singapore has impressed us with Parmesan Truffle Chicken, Mala Chicken, and even a HotBlaze Grilled Chicken this year that hooked us in for repeats and got us keenly watching what they have up next. Their latest seasonal entrant is the new KFC Saucy Wings which comes in two delectable flavours: Garlickin’ Soy and Chillickin’ Hot.
KFC takes their chicken seriously and a special batter was created just for these Saucy Wings. The wings are freshly breaded and fried to perfection before being doused in a thick glaze, adding an intense umami depth to it. It stays crispy from edge to edge as we would expect from KFC so they will no doubt continue to add to our waistline.
From 24 May 2019 and on, their Saucy Wings will be tantalising your taste buds so make a beeline to the nearest outlet with the besties because they are too good for you to hold back on. Get ready to set your phones aside because your fingers will get sticky with this messy treat that is finger lickin’ good!
Life races ahead so fast that we sometimes don’t even realise what’s happening and how much we need to bring ourselves to a pause just to take in how we feel. That desperation for a brief reprieve is how we find ourselves booking our next flight out, or if we can’t, we do with a holiday within our sunny island.
Today, we have a new destination in the South of Singapore to share. Well, we’d like to think of Native Kitchen as a destination. It is located within Village Hotel at Sentosa and it is a restaurant that celebrates the best of islander cuisine.
Aside from serving up an International breakfast, Native Kitchen specialises in Polynesian and Islander cuisines which offer a myriad of dishes using the freshest ingredients and culinary techniques that bring out their natural flavours. With that, prepare your taste buds for a gastronomical feast that will leave not just the belly, but the heart full as well.
The family-friendly restaurant boasts serious resort vibes and with so many attractions in the proximity, it is no wonder Native Kitchen is fast becoming one of the hottest spots in Singapore for families, big groups or even if you just want a casual weekend date. Here are 8 reasons why we love Native Kitchen at Village Hotel at Sentosa.
At buffets, some of us lose all self-control and rationality as we devour way more food than what our bellies usually can take. The array of choices is a gastronomical galore for the glutton in us.
Quality of food aside, what’s as essential to such feasts is the company we are with. They say people who eat together, stay together, but eating in a group can be tricky sometimes with different palates and needs.
Katong Kitchen is an inclusive location for communal dining with family, friends, and colleagues. They are halal-certified with a buffet line-up that they expanded to feature familiar Malay, Indian, Chinese, and Eurasian dishes in addition to their Peranakan cuisine. Like their theme, it’s where the ‘Flavours of Singapore’ meet. There’s a selection of fresh seafood on ice, DIY dishes, as well as a hot plate and a noodle station where you can request for food that’s made-to-order.
This is definitely one place that will please one and all. If you haven’t been, here’s everything to love about Katong Kitchen.
Our readers can quote “ladyironchef” upon making reservations to enjoy 15% off Katong Kitchen’s lunch and dinner buffet from now until 30 June 2019.

Just when we thought that KFC Singapore had spiced things up with their Mala Spicy chicken, they have managed to outdo themselves again and have turned the heat up a notch with their new HotBlaze Grilled Chicken.
When KFC launched their Signature Grilled Chicken in August 2018, many people were puzzled as to why a brand that is famous for its fried chicken would attempt to come up with a grilled chicken menu item. As the saying goes, “tasting is believing” and after trying out KFC’s Signature Grilled Chicken it became clear to everyone that KFC is an absolute wizard when it comes to chicken in any form.
With the Signature Grilled Chicken being such a huge hit, KFC has decided to take things to the next level by jazzing up the well-loved grilled chicken dish by adding a little spice to it. This limited edition menu item will be available at most KFC outlets islandwide exclusively from 17 April 2019 to the end of May, while stocks last.
