When it comes to croissants, French buttery flaky rolls full of crisp goodness springs to mind. Yet, not many bakeries in Singapore do them right — they often end up missing the mark, resulting in overly-soggy and tasteless croissants.
Recently, we have found one hole-in-the-wall bakery near to Bugis that churns out one of the best croissants! Introducing Mother Dough — each labor-intensive pastry sold in their quaint little shop is freshly baked to perfection and well-crafted, ensuring fluffiness and depth of flavours. Not to mention, they are Halal-certified too!
Not all of us are fans of burning a hole in our wallets and splurging on extravagant buffet spreads every Christmas. Sometimes, simplicity can be key. For those looking to have just a little hint of something “extra” to grace your table this festive season, we have just the recommendation for you.

Since the announcement in late August, the much-anticipated Monga, founded by Taiwanese celebrity and comedian Nono, has finally opened its first-ever local outlet at Jem in Jurong East, serving up thick, fresh and juicy fried chicken cutlets!
If you are thinking that this is the first overseas outlet to join their more than 45 outlets in Taiwan, you’d be surprised to know that since its establishment in its home country, Monga has since expanded overseas to countries like Canada, USA, UK, Philippines and Malaysia!
The moment someone mentions the East side of Singapore, our minds are undoubtedly reminded of food and cosy cafes. After all, the East area is home to an abundance of artisanal dessert studios, restaurants and bars. But MOD Café is a newly-opened cafe that caught our attention.
The hype for Korean food never seemed to die down after the K-wave hit our shores just a few years back. Even untill today, people’s love for Korean music, culture, and of course, food continues strong.
From the same team behind many popular Japanese & Korean dining concepts in Singapore such as Chir Chir, Sora Boru, Nipong Naepong and NY Night Market, Masizzim is a Korean casual restaurant hailing all the way from South Korea that specialises in hearty and wholesome stews. If you understand Korean, you’d also realise that their name itself is a wordplay on the words ‘masi’ (delicious) and ‘jjim’ (stew).
To add a little diversity to their menu, Masizzim has rolled out a brand new lunch set menu that will be available on weekdays from 11am to 2pm (excluding public holidays) at both their 313 Somerset and Westgate outlets. Diners can look forward to an exciting lineup which includes popular Korean dishes such as bibimbap, kimchi fried rice and bulgogi!
Prices start from a very wallet-friendly S$10.90++ and each lunch set entails a main, a bowl of seaweed soup as well as two pieces of Korean pancakes.
Seeing how we are stuck with this unforgiving weather all year round, it’s no surprise that many of us are on the perpetual search for new places to get our ice cream fix in Singapore. This time, our search has led us to Mingle Mangle, an ice cream parlour nestled at the edge of Hougang that scoops up a selection of classic and unique ice cream flavours.

Milksha is finally opening their very first Southeast Asian outlet in Singapore at Suntec City! Slated to open this weekend on 22nd of June at 11am, Milksha first arrived on our little red dot through their pop-up at Shilin Night Market at Kranji in April this year.
Possibly another strong contender for the title of “Best Bubble Tea” in Singapore, Milksha has already made waves in Taiwan, China and Hong Kong. Also known as “Milkshop” in Taiwan, Milksha is voted the best bubble tea by Taiwanese university students!
