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.
Matcha-lovers have good reason to rejoice as one of Hokkaido’s most famous matcha cafes has graced Singapore’s sunny shores. 108 Matcha Saro, specialising in matcha (Japanese green tea) and hojicha (roasted green tea) drinks and desserts, has set up shop in Suntec City!

You’ve knocked off and you’re looking to unwind over drinks. Or maybe you need a spot for an intimate date night that will impress. If gin and tonic (G&T) puts you in high spirits or if you are just a curious tippler who’s clueless about gin, head over to Cin Cin for a taste of their collection of boutique gins and gin-inspired cocktails.
Find them nestled on the ground floor of Oasia Hotel at Tanjong Pagar and be greeted by sleek, refined sage green and emerald furnishing with accents of gold for glamour.
Behind their marble counter is a collection of almost 100 different gins ready to be mixed with a variety of tonic waters. If you’re feeling experimental, build your own G&T with some help from the bartenders. Whatever the creation, Cin Cin is has has a wondrous diversity of flavours to help you make the world feel a little more bearable.
Joining in on the soufflé pancake trend is Fluff Stack that sits on the basement of the newly renovated F&B section of Suntec City. Pretty in pink with gold accents, the decor of the cafe is as pretty as the pancakes.
But one thing that definitely sets Fluff Stack apart from other soufflé pancake cafés has got to be the price point. While soufflé pancakes tend to be priced at a premium, we love that the ones here start from S$8.80 which is pretty affordable!
Tiong Bahru is one of the best areas for hungry souls with the many hidden gems and cafes that offer scrumptious food at almost every turn. Newly opened in early 2019, Cafe Pandan is yet another addition to the bustling area.
Serving a plethora of traditional Singaporean breakfast dishes and even having their own DIY-Nasi Lemak station, Cafe Pandan is a must-visit for those in the area craving for a good ol’ school meal.

Whether it is Western food or Chinese fare you are looking for, cheap-eats or posh, elegant restaurants to bring your date, Tanjong Pagar has it all.

If you’re in Bangkok and are on the hunt for eateries that not only have a smorgasbord of delicious food but also a unique layout, this is one place that you should add to your list.
Situated right smack in the middle of Yaowarat—Bangkok’s Chinatown—is Lhong Tou Cafe. This eclectic, cosy eatery is popular for their dim sum as well as their very interesting interior; both of which are incredibly Instagram-worthy.
The common thing about quirkily designed eateries is that they usually have pretty subpar food. This isn’t the case for Lhong Tou Cafe; we never thought that we would ever have some of the best dim sum of our lives in Bangkok and the dim sum here puts some of the ones we’ve tried in Hong Kong to shame!
When artisanal bread was introduced to Singapore’s bakery scene, it became clear that not all bread is created equal. The long fermentation process that artisanal bakeries go through allows the dough to develop for more robust flavour and texture which gives rise to remarkable bakes.
Begin visually as you appreciate the bread’s brown hue. Feel its crispiness and breathe the perfume of the bread itself. Only then do you bite into it and take in its balanced texture of crunchy crust and fluffy soft insides. Let its complex flavours gradually develop in your mouth.
To fully experience this, we rounded up 10 specialty bakeries in Singapore if you are in it to get quality loaves and top-notch breads.
