We first announced the news of % Arabica opening in Singapore back in August last year and we are happy to report that the wait is finally over.
The ever so popular Kyoto coffee chain % Arabica has finally opened their doors in Singapore at Arab Street! And at a pretty apt location we’d say. Striving to let people “see the world through coffee” as their philosophy, they have currently 36 stores in 10 countries.
The Korean food scene in Singapore has been on the rise over the last couple of years. This is not a surprise for many of us since Korea has been riding on the tidal wave of Hallyu, or the Korean Wave, and we all love Korean products.
Nipong Naepong has been on our little red dot for over a year now, satisfying the cravings of numerous Korean food enthusiasts with scrumptious Chinese-Korean cuisine. As Singapore’s first “ppong” specialty restaurant, the restaurant has seamlessly fused flavours inspired from around the world with impeccable flair.
For the uninitiated, jjamppong (ppong in short) is a Korean noodle dish typically served with spicy meat and/or seafood.
If you have been wanting to try jjamppong from all the K-Dramas you have been watching, drop by Nipong Naepong today! Two different amazing deals await, too!
Nestled in the rows of busy shophouses at Pasir Panjang is 91PP, aptly named after the street it is on – 91 Pasir Panjang. It may seem unsuspecting but the many office-wear clad customers tell a different story.
91PP dishes out affordable lunch options for its hungry patrons such as their Meal Prep bowls and Pasta, and they are all under S$10! They also operate on a cashless system where you order your food on a mobile app, so there’s no need to bring along your wallets too.
Nestled within the contemporary and sleek XY Hotel Bugis Singapore is Kava Bistro. This cosy little bistro and cafe is run by a family dishing up Halal-Western fare that are fused with Asian flavours.
With a swan floatie drifting through the pool seen overhead through the transparent panel while Queen’s Radio Ga Ga played in the background, stepping into the space that Kava Bistro occupies is like entering a problem-free world.
From Classic Cheeseburgers to Kava K-Pop Drumlets and Ondeh-Ondeh Cinnamon Rolls, Kava Bistro’s unique food selection and charming ambience enraptured us within the first few minutes we were here.
Newly opened in Tanjong Katong is quaint little cafe, 6 Letter Coffee. The cosy cafe occupies a storefront near Tanjong Katong Girls’ School—a stone’s throw away from Dakota MRT Station. They even have a nail salon at the back of the cafe if you’re wanting a manicure after indulging in some food and coffee.
Serving up a variety of all-day breakfast and brunch menu items, along with other mains and desserts, this new cafe might just be your new favourite spot to relax and unwind. Here’s what we tried and our take on this new coffee stop!
Any trip to Hong Kong would not be complete without having a meal (or should we say every meal?) in one of their many cha chaan tengs, snacking on a couple of Hong Kong egg tarts in one seating and slurping up some Hong Kong-style milk teas to end your day on a sweet note.
Even though that the service is definitely not the best around, Hong Kong still remains as one of the best food destinations in Asia. Thankfully for us, there are quite a number of iconic Hong Kong restaurants that opened in Singapore over the past few years.
Forget about the 4-hour flight to Hong Kong, here are 7 Hong Kong food concepts in Singapore that will gau dim any lingering HK food cravings.
Boasting high ceilings, a bigger space and decked out in Peranakan-inspired tiles and furnishings, one-Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant Candlenut offers an Omakase menu—which they cheekily call ‘Ahmakase’.
The restaurant has a different, somewhat contemporary approach towards Peranakan cuisine, delving away from traditional methods.
Boasting a wider array of dishes (ranging between S$20 – S$30 each), we got to try a good many dishes, with our favourites being the Blue Swimmer Crab Curry, Turmeric, Galangal, Kaffir Lime Leaf and Westholme Wagyu Beef Rib Rendang, Serunding, Turmeric Leaf.
