TungLok Group has added a new establishment to its ever-flourishing list of restaurants – TASTE by TungLok.
TASTE by TungLok intends on revolutionising the way many view healthy Chinese dishes by serving everyday dishes with quality and organic ingredients with a refined twist. It is TungLok’s belief that through good food and good taste, family bonds are strengthened and friendships are forged.
Their meticulously-curated menu boasts over 70 heart-warming dishes that will bring many for a trip down memory lane, featuring Chinese-cuisine classics such as their Double-Boiled Fish Maw with Chicken, Australian Barramundi Fish Head and Crisp-Fried Tiger Prawn with Sichuan Spice.
Feel the nostalgia and taste the goodness of traditional recipes with the new TASTE by TungLok. Check out what we had and our thoughts on this new Chinese restaurant.
Gluttons, prepare your stomachs for an intense feasting session as Twilight: Flea & Feast will be back again this year with a smorgasbord of scrumptious grub. Inspired by the weekend food markets in Australia, this much-anticipated event will house a tantalising array of street food from all around the world.
This year, you can look forward to stuffing your faces silly with goodies from over 50 Muslim-friendly stalls that will be selling an exciting selection of foods that include the likes of beef cubes, poke bowls and takoyaki.
After filling your bellies, take a break and head on over to the arcade zone and retail booths to take part in the many exciting activities available. You can also support some of our local talents who will be performing during the event.
Here is a peek of what you can expect this weekend!
There are no short of eateries that sell authentic Thai food in Bangkok but we feel that few can measure up to what The Sixth has to offer.
Located just a short walk away from the famous Wat Arun and the Grand Palace, The Sixth is a cosy and hip little cafe that is run by a young couple. They specialise in wholesome and soulful Thai food which include the likes of Tom Yum Koong, Phad Thai and Thai Green Curry.
It’s a crime to go to Bangkok without trying anything tom yum related. Milky, tangy and addictively spicy, it is no wonder that this hearty Thai staple is a hot favourite amongst locals and tourists alike.
Tom yum soup is readily available almost anywhere in Bangkok and it isn’t hard to chance upon a stall that sells it. However, if you’re on a tom yum hunt with a group of ravenous friends, we recommend that you pop by The Place 168 to share their massive Tom Yum Koong Soup.
A classic favourite for many in Thailand is pad thai. Sweet, nutty and full of varying texture, this stir-fried noodle dish is a must-try when you visit the land of smiles.
Of course, some places do up the dish better than others and one place that is dubbed to have the best pad thai in Bangkok is the legendary Thipsamai. The pad thai here is so famous that they have even earned themselves a Bib Gourmand award by the Michelin Guide.
Located on the outskirts of Chinatown, Thipsamai has been around since 1966 and the store is constantly flooded with both tourists and locals. However, like every other hyped up establishment, the real question is, are the insanely long queues really worth it?
You can’t say that you’ve been to Bangkok unless you’ve experienced their night market scene. Bangkok is home to a plethora of markets that sell anything and everything that you could need; from food to the latest fashion trends to services like manicures and perms, they’ve got you thoroughly covered.
If you don’t have much time to go night market hopping in Bangkok, the one market you need to head to to get the full experience is the famous Talad Rot Fai Srinakarin, which is also known as Rot Fai Train Market. There are a number of similar train markets across Bangkok but this is one of the bigger ones.
This market is a little out of the way from central Bangkok but we promise you that the journey is completely worth it.
Having made its name as an artisanal dessert cafe at Horne Road, Two Bakers has opened their second outlet along Teck Chye Terrace. Helmed by Le Cordon Bleu Paris trained chef, you can expect the same quality food and French-fusion desserts at the Serangoon outlet.
Have you ever searched high and low for a particular treat from your childhood, yet to no avail? Well, with Two Bakers’ new Nostalgia dessert series, you can relive those beloved flavours and memories once again.
In addition to their new selection of nostalgic desserts, Two Bakers also offers a whole new menu of mains, including a specially crafted dinner menu at the Serangoon outlet. With the mission to serve wholesome food for the soul and the motto of “eat well live well”, here’s why you really should drop by Two Bakers’ new outlet soon!
From now until 30 Aug 2019, our readers can quote “ladyironchef” to enjoy 25% off mains for weekdays lunch and dinner (Tuesdays to Fridays), excluding Public Holidays.

Perhaps one of the first few cocktails you’d start with when you first hit a club would be the classic Gin and Tonic: a highball cocktail made with Gin and Tonic water poured over ice.
While we might have never actually given much thought to the origins of the spirits served— granted, alcohol is usually imported—you’d never actually expect to find a distillery on home ground.
Situated among dozens of other mini factories that churn out baked goods is where Tanglin Gin—a micro-distillery—produces what can be considered Singapore’s very own homemade gin. It’s rather surprising; really, how long it took for our first distillery to appear, considering how much of Singapore’s nightlife centres around drinking?
