Housed in a dignified colonial building, Mess Hall is the pinnacle of exquisite dining in the new Sentosa experience – Mess Hall, Village Hotel Sentosa, The Outpost Hotel and The Barracks Hotel. What was originally a military outpost has now been transformed into a contemporary village of endless gourmet possibilities.
More than just culinary excellence, the architecture of the building brags of a quiet elegance. Beyond the perimeters of the building lies a Heritage Courtyard, replete with grassy terrains and a serene atmosphere.
From Hidemasa by Hide Yamamoto’s refined Japanese cuisine, to Royal Taj’s curries and biryani, and Quentin’s Bar and Restaurant’s sophisticated Eurasian dishes, here is our guide on the 3 restaurants at Mess Hall that you have to dine at.
One of the perks of living in multi-cultural Singapore is none other than being able to indulge in a myriad of distinct cuisines.
What’s more, with the growing abundance of Halal-Chinese eateries gracing our food scene, our Muslim pals can now expand their palates and enjoy the best of both worlds while reveling in authentic Chinese cuisine. One such Halal-certified, Chinese establishment is Xiaoer Niuda, a traditional beef la mian restaurant nestled in the heart of JEM.
La Mian — known as “hand-pulled” noodles — originates from Lanzhou, China. Xiaoer Niuda has brought that fusion culture over to our local shores, specialising in handmade, halal la mian topped with morsels of savoury beef.
Cake lovers, rejoice! A new parlour has opened. Located in the heart of Toa Payoh, The Twisted Trio is currently in its soft launch stage, but it is set for a grand opening this Sunday. It is a 5 to 10-minute walk from the MRT.
This new, modern cafe is founded by 3 pastry chefs (with 3 different personalities, thus the name!) who initially worked together before deciding to open their own dessert shop with cakes that cater to all tastebuds.
Bangkok is well-known for its beautiful cafés, and Luka is no exception. If you’re craving for a hearty brunch at an idyllic spot, this café is more than perfect for you. It is not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye; the food they serve will also excite your tastebuds.
Luka’s laid-back ambience will keep you coming back for more. Having multiple branches around Bangkok will certainly make it easier for many tourists and locals alike to dine at this tranquil café.
Luka has branches in Silom, Thonglor, and Soi Som Kid. In every Luka café, their concept is unique and innovative. That makes them stand out from other cafés in Bangkok.

What better way is there to kick the decade off than with a healthier and trimmer you?
When we talk about health-conscious eating and dieting, the first food item that comes to mind is salad. Especially for those carnivores among us, the thought of eating salads regularly can seem an overly daunting task. It doesn’t help that many might imagine salads as being plain tasting, monotonous to prepare, and more expensive than more substantial food options; it is no wonder that few manage to see this particular resolution through to the year’s end.
Rather than embark on an insurmountable task of breaking your bank (and spirit), join us on a hunt for good, affordable, wholesome foods. We’ve compiled a list of salad bars that serve up fresh, palatable and affordable salads for under, or at, the S$12 mark. You can now have your green(back)s and eat them too!
If you love Japanese food and have been a huge fan of Isetan’s popular Japan Food Town at Wisma Atria, you’d be sad to know that the place has closed down due to non-payment issues.
Isetan has officially issued them a notice to quit and their tenancy has since been terminated.
That’s it. We’re calling off our diet. How does one eat clean when KFC exists? This year, they’ve been spoiling us silly with the most sinful, delicious treats. We don’t know how they’re coming up with all these amazing creations but we’re certainly not complaining.
First, it was the Spicy Nyonya Chicken. Then, it was the shell-less Kentaco. And if those weren’t guilt-inducing enough, they brought back their crispy chicken skin.
And now, they’re incorporating culinary flavours from the land of smiles into their signature fried chicken. Not travelling to Thailand any time soon? The newest KFC Spicy Thai Crunch will surely satisfy your cravings.
