Tucked away at Kallang Wave Mall is Omoomodon, serving Halal Korean fusion rice and noodle bowls with a unique twist. Omoomodon is pronounced as ‘Omo-Omo-Don’. ‘Omo-omo’ is derived from the popular Korean slang “Oh My!”, while ‘don’ is translated to bowl in Japanese. The Korean expression in the name is used to depict pleasant surprise when their diners tuck into tasty customisable fusion bowls.
The wallet-friendly prices mean you will not have to break the bank. With the option to customise your meal exactly how you want—from your own rice bowl to a warm bowl of ramen or a delicious plate of steak—there are endless possibilities to what you can choose at Omoomodon.
A hidden gem situated in the residential area of MacPherson is Wishes Cafe, selling creamy gelatos and fluffy waffles. The charming little cafe looked unsuspecting from the outside, standing next to a convenience store and a kopitiam while the elderly milled about with their groceries and caught up over their morning kopi.
We were welcomed by the comfy-looking chairs and beautiful sakura decorations that hung from the ceiling. A very Instagram-worthy cafe indeed, the food and beverages here did not disappoint either, whether in taste or presentation.
Wishes Cafe offers several unique gelato flavours including Avocado, Thai Milk Tea, Mint Tea, Peary Ginger, and Kumquat Sorbet.

If you’ve travelled to Japan before, you’d realise that some of the restaurants cycle their menus according to the four seasons. This is due to certain ingredients being more readily available than others during specific parts of the years.
JW360°, which stands for Japan Way Three Sixty, took this season-based concept and ingeniously transplanted it to ever-summer Singapore. Occupying a 486 square meter premise that can accommodate up to 140 seated patrons, JW360° is a concept store that consists of three operating divisions: JW360° Cafe, Suju Restaurant and a retail corner called Nomono.
As the focus of the store revolves around the four seasons, their menus and retail items here are switched up every few months, meaning that you will always have something new to look forward to.
Out of the many places around the world, they chose to set up their first outlet at the newly opened Jewel Changi Airport as they believe that this strategic location will enable them to connect with travellers from all around the world and allow them to provide everyone with the full Japanese experience.
Gone are the days when waffles are being eaten on its own—there are literally cafes serving waffles paired with ice cream everywhere we go now and even savoury waffle pairings for those who do not have a sweet tooth.

Granted, these treats do not come cheap. For those who’d love to savour some waffles and ice cream without breaking the bank, fret not for here are 10 cafes in Singapore where you can get waffles and ice cream for less than S$10.
We’ve waited long and we’ve waited hard for this very day and it is finally here.

Within Jewel’s distinctive dome-shaped facade of glass and steel is a 10-storey mega complex that houses 280 retails and food and beverage outlets. The beautifully designed structure, which combines a marketplace with an urban park, encapsulates Singapore as a garden city. It is directly connected to the Arrival Hall of Terminal 1 in Changi Airport and linked to Terminals 2 and 3 via air-conditioned link bridges.
