From the humble streets of Chinatown to the enclave of old Kampong Glam, PARKROYAL on Beach Road’s all-day dining buffet restaurant has long been known to deliver excellent renditions of local classics. Drawing inspiration from Singapore’s rich culinary landscape, the chefs here spare no effort in preparing a sumptuous buffet spread of mega proportions.
Their all-new weekend lunch and dinner spread—happening from now until 30 April 2019—encompasses cuisine spanning the far reaches of Southeast Asia from their Indonesian-inspired Wagyu Beef with Rendang Sauce, cult favourite, Salted Egg Yolk Crab and their all-new Claypot Rock Lobster with Fish Maw Soup that’s worthy of multiple helpings. Birthed from the hands of an experienced team of chefs, this weekend spread boasts a rustic, nostalgic appeal—one delicious mouthful at a time.
If you haven’t quite gotten over the recent Chinese new year holiday, then perhaps some proper feasting is in order. And to make your weekend dining experience even better, our readers can quote “LIC25” to enjoy a 25% discount on the weekend lunch and dinner buffet!
Chinese New Year is just a couple of weeks ahead and we are sure that many of us are excited to spend some quality time with your family and loved ones. But besides the wholesome gatherings, this is also the perfect season (or so we deem to be) to put on hold any existing diet and instead, indulge in those festive goodies non-stop.
But feasting during Chinese New Year shouldn’t stop at just bak kwa and pineapple tarts. This Lunar New Year, ushering in the year of the Pig in the best possible way is Ginger at PARKROYAL On Beach Road, an all-day dining destination and one of our favourite venues to dine at regardless of the occasion.
Executive Chef Vincent Aw and the team has thoughtfully curated an extensive array of auspicious culinary delights which will be presented as part of their buffet line-up come 21st January 2019. Think D.I.Y Yu Sheng, Singaporean-favourite crabs and divinely crispy roasted suckling pig!

There have been more and more halal eateries popping up all around Singapore in recent months, which is great because that means more places to eat out with our Muslim friends!
A relatively new addition to that list, a must-try if you’re a fan of beef and Japanese food, is Gyunion. This humble hole-in-the-wall Japanese eatery sells authentic, Halal-Certified Japanese cuisine with ingredients that are directly sourced from Japan. So, if you’re looking for somewhere new to feast on some hearty Japanese food, this is definitely a place to consider.
Specialising in a variety of authentic Korean fare from its homemade noodles (guksu), Korean fried chicken and even their signature Korean-style hot pot (jeongol), Guksu over at Suntec City is a tribute of all things traditional.
This new-age Korean Restaurant also happens to be the first specialised Jeongol house in Singapore and although their menu boasts mainly stews and noodle dishes—including the highly popular hae shin tang and yuk gae jang meon—their Korean fried chicken wings are a must-try as well.
So round up your squad, whether they may be Korean food enthusiasts or simply your beer-drinking buddies because Guksu is a restaurant worth checking out.
Tucked away on a street in Samcheong-dong in Seoul, GLOBO Coffee Faktory is an unassuming cafe front with a gorgeous secret hideout deep within it. If you stroll into the cafe, you will be greeted by a massive coffee roaster as the cafe roasts their own beans.
We knew we had to have a taste of their coffee after being pleasantly overwhelmed by the aroma of coffee beans. Little did we know that deeper into the cafe, is a patio with indoor and alfresco seating with natural sunlight streaming in. How delightful!
The patio at the back of the cafe is probably one of the most photogenic spots we have stumbled upon in Seoul, South Korea. The quiet and intimate ambience makes the patio a great place to sit and relax for a bit while sipping on some amazing coffee.
It is difficult to pick the trendiest neighbourhood in Seoul. There is Gangnam for those who are into nightlife, Garosu-gil for its amazing concept cafes and Hongdae, which is a shopping paradise. Needless to say, these popular districts have an energetic and vibrant atmosphere which appeals to many young Koreans and tourists.
However, there are days when we prefer to be away from the crowds and during times like these, we head to Gyeonridan-gil (also spelt as Kyungridan-gil or Gyeongnidan-gil) in Itaewon instead.
Located just 10 minutes away from Myeong-dong by taxi, Gyeonridan-gil is a charming neighbourhood which boasts cafes, restaurants, bakeries and multi-concept stores. If you have not been there before, here are 16 cafes at Gyeongridan-gil you need to add on your bucket list.
With Ramadan just around the corner, Singapore’s biggest pasar malam event is back again this year—yes, it is the highly anticipated Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar! Soak in the festive vibes and exciting atmosphere at the night market which will be running from 12 May to 14 June 2018 along Haig Road and the Malay Village.
This year’s Geylang Serai bazaar proves to be equally spectacular—featuring both classic, traditional Muslim cuisine to creative hipster food that is created to stand out on your social media feeds. The plethora of street food and Halal delights that are offered at hundreds of stalls in this massive bazaar is nothing short of impressive and it will probably take you more than one visit to see everything.
As usual, admission to the Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar is free so there is really no reason why you shouldn’t be making plans with your family and friends to be a part of the buzzing Ramadan festivities these few weekends! READ ON
