Fu-unji Ramen — Is This The Best Tsukemen Ramen In Tokyo?

Fu-unji Ramen Collage

Saying that the Japanese love their ramen would be a complete understatement. Ramen is a staple food in there and there is an abundance of ramen stores scattered all over Japan. While most of these places sell pretty good ramen, it is pretty hard to find a place that really knocks the ball out of the park.

In Japan, a place that sells good food can easily be recognised by the insane, snaking queues that can last for hours. One of the places in Tokyo that has some of the craziest queues is Fu-unji Ramen, a no-frills place that sells solid bowls of tsukemen ramen that is hard to beat.

The Running Bean – Chic, Boho-Themed Café in HCMC With Incredible Smoothie Bowls

The Running Bean HCMC

After a full day of eating Pho and Bahn Mi, we were feeling guilty after gorging ourselves with that much delicious and hearty street food, so we knew we had to cleanse ourselves with something a little healthier. Just a stone’s throw away from Ho Chi Minh City’s very own “Stark Tower”, the Bitexco Financial Tower, sits one of the trendiest and most modern-looking cafés in District 1, The Running Bean.

We were first drawn to the chic architecture of the single-story building, reminiscent of South Korean-style cafés with geometric patterns lining the exterior of the building. The Running Bean is popular amongst a younger demographic and the entire compound is filled with Instagram-worthy backdrops for you to snap the perfect “OOTD”.

If you’re planning to take a short break before embarking on more adventures in HCMC, take a break at The Running Bean and lounge in one of their comfortable seats inside or al fresco.

Tastea – A Must-Visit Cafe In JB With Egg-celent Omelettes & Risotto

Tastea JB

Offering diners a spacious, charming respite from the midday heat, humble cafe, Restoran Tastea is one that deserves a stopover when exploring the cafe-laden enclave of Taman Mount Austin. Their menu focuses heavily on Western dishes, leaning more towards Italian comfort food with their wide spectrum of pasta dishes from the humble linguine to risotto.

If you’re on the prowl for a decent cafe-style brunch, we highly recommend coming here. Their food is delicious, portion sizes generous and above all, much more worth paying for than a cafe back in Singapore.

Petaling Street Hokkien Mee – KL Hokkien Mee To-Die-For At JB’s Taman Mount Austin

Petaling Street Hokkien Mee (JB)

No trip to Malaysia is complete without a piping-hot plate of KL-style Hokkien mee stall.

Brimming with intense charred flavours and heady wok hei aroma, the famous KL version is special in that it is stir-fried over a charcoal flame and is infused (heavily) with pork fat, a smattering of crispy golden pork lard and a dark soy sauce that gives it its signature dark colour.

While prowling the food-laden streets of Taman Mount Austin in JB in search of solid local Malaysian fare, we stumbled upon Petaling Street Hokkien Mee—or Lai Noodle House as they are also called—an unassuming eatery specialising in Malaysian-style zi char. Only a few days old when we visited, their food was remarkable

Gula Melaka Desserts

For the love of all things sticky, sweet and sinfully irresistible, Malaysia’s smoky, caramel-edged gula Melaka ranks high on our list of desserts worth skipping gym time for. Before the Europeans introduced cane sugar to our part of the world, we relied heavily on palm sugar.

Depending on the quality of the palm, and how it is pressed, different varieties of gula Melaka may exude different flavour profiles. Sourness, smoke, caramel, butterscotch, coffee, or even a combination of those flavours. A complex sweetener with a myriad of nuanced flavours, we just love it in everything.

Here are 15 places in Singapore where you can find gula Melaka desserts worthy enough to make you want to skip gym day.
