Kyoto is known for many things, and one of them is matcha desserts. Think matcha parfaits, soft-serve, ice cream and shaved ice… However, matcha desserts are not the only options in the city. There are also several fine patisseries that are worth checking out. Here is our list of 6 best dessert shops in Kyoto.
Krispy Kreme, the famous American doughnut franchise, will be opening in Singapore at Tangs Orchard Basement 1 in October 2013. This is great news for fans of Krispy Kreme who have waited so long for the original glazed doughnuts to come to Singapore. I am glad that we no longer need to carry boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts back from overseas. 2013 is turning out to be a great year for the local food scene. I certainly look forward to the arrival of more brands in the near future.
I’ve written about Koh Grill & Sushi Bar’s before, but I thought I’d just share it again, because lately, the whole Singapore seems to be going gaga over their Shiok Maki.
Koh Grill & Sushi Bar is a small eatery that sits within Wisma’s Food Republic, and they serve honest Japanese food at affordable prices. And the one dish that makes everyone go back again and again is the Shiok Maki. It is a maki made up of avocado, unagi and aburi salmon, drenched with a supremely addictive creamy sauce that is seemingly a legit mixture of mayo and mentai, then topped with a copious amount of tobiko. Well, no one really knows the recipe, but sounds tempting already?
The Shiok Maki is hands down one of the best things I’ve ever had in life. Trust me, I am not exaggerating. This is surely one place to head to for a quick fix of Japanese food in between shopping at Orchard Road. Be prepared to queue though; an hour’s wait is the norm.

There are many reasons why so many people fall in love with Phuket – white sand with turquoise waters and blue sunny skies; luxurious beach villas that will make you feel like royalty; cheap and delicious Thai street food; and wonder spa treatments for your tense shoulders after your flight.
Granted, Phuket has become very touristy in recent years as travellers escape there for a getaway, but there are still many beautiful beaches that are waiting to be explored. We spent a weekend in Kata Beach and had a memorable experience.
It is not my practice to write about new restaurants/cafes immediately after their opening; I have a policy of a three months buffer. But Kith Cafe has been around for a long time, so I thought it would be of no harm to share about their new outlet at Park Mall.
I like the new Kith Cafe. Since its opening last month, I’ve been there a few times, and it has quickly become my favourite hangout place in Orchard Road.
I first knew of Keisuke Tokyo Ramen at Parco Marina Bay when I went to Nantsuttei Ramen for lunch. One of my favourite hobbies is to read restaurants’ menu, and I remember that they had an ebi-based broth (not Shio, not tonkatsu, not shoyu) ramen when I took a glance at their menu.
A while back, I went to Keisuke Tokyo for lunch, specifically for their award-winning ebi ramen, only to find out that they’ve removed it from the menu late last year.
Is Keisuke Tokyo still worth going? Is Keisuke Tokyo the best ramen restaurant in Singapore? Just how good exactly is Keisuke Tokyo to win the prestigious title of Ramen King in TV Tokyo’s Ramen Champion Series?
I was very excited when I first heard that KFC Singapore has a new inclusion in their breakfast menu – a.m. Blueberry Pancakes. After trying them at a recent tasting, I have to say that they are undeniably sogood!
Besides the blueberry pancakes, I love the new KFC a.m. Family Feast, which was also recently introduced. Designed for a family of 4, the breakfast meal comprises two sets of a.m. Blueberry Pancakes with Hash Brown, one set of a.m. Platter, one a.m. Twister (Original Recipe), two coffee/tea, and two hot milo — all for just $19.90!
Note: Kki at Ann Siang Hill is currently closed, and it is currently looking for a new premise.
I first heard of Kki Cafe at Ann Siang Hill from a friend, and then another friend mentioned it too. I was about to visit Kki, but suddenly, all the media and food blogs in Singapore started to write about it. I am not sure about you, but I am not one who will follow the crowd, so I decided to wait for the hype to die down.
Finally, my chance to visit Kki Patisserie came. After having dim sum at Majestic Restaurant, my friends wanted some cakes for desserts, so we dropped by Kki Cafe. Given that there are so many new dessert places in Singapore, is Kki Cafe worth the trip?
