How can a cafe make us fall in love so much? FFL always does it best. Here are some of our favourite dishes from its current menu. You need to bring your squad here for your next gathering!

There are countless people in the world who admire the brilliance of Japanese food culture and there is no reason why anyone should not be. In Japan, food is not something to be taken lightly; farmers are extremely attentive to their crops, chefs are particular about their culinary techniques and the country is at the top of the game when it comes to innovative food technologies.
The increase of importance placed on Japanese food products has made it crucial for all restauranteurs and F&B professionals to keep up with the latest seasonal ingredients, innovative products, and new-to-market brands if they want to stay relevant in the industry. And there is no better place to do that than Food Japan 2017, which runs from 26 to 28 Oct 2017 at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre Halls 401-402.
The sixth edition of Food Japan is where visitors can expect over 200 exhibitors offering 3,000 food-related products. As ASEAN’s biggest Japanese food and beverage event, Food Japan 2017 will focus on Functional Food and Elder Care Food amongst a myriad of authentic Japanese ingredients and food, masterclasses, unique products and specialties from over 37 Japanese prefectures.
Although this is primarily a trade show, Japan Food 2017 will open its doors to members of the public on the third day of the event (28 Oct). This is one Japanese F&B Fair which you do not want to miss out on! READ ON

Fat Belly is a new speakeasy-style steakhouse in Singapore that shares the same space with its sister brand and ice cream joint, Sugarhaus, at Serene Centre. It only opens in the evening, occupying the counter seats at the back of the ice cream parlour.
This 10-seater steakhouse is helmed by chef-owner Stanley Seow, who specialises in alternative, less well-known cuts of beef such as the Flat Iron, which is essentially a cut taken from the shoulder of a cow—generally much less tender than a tenderloin or even a ribeye but let us leave it to the expert to prove us otherwise.
