If there’s one food trend that has never died down, it is Japanese Green Tea – Matcha. In every cafe, you’re 90% likely to see a Matcha Latte or a Matcha-infused dessert somewhere on the menu. However, we would like to introduce you to Matcha’s just-as-delicious but less-talked-about counterpart – Hojicha.
Hojicha is kind of roasted green tea that carries a strong toasty, smoky flavour that is super delicious and earthy. It’s a unique flavour that you won’t forget once you try it! So here’s a list of the best Hojicha desserts in Singapore that will get you hooked onto this underrated flavour.
We are sure that just like us, all you foodies have an all-time favourite eatery that you never fail to recommend and sing high praises for. This is the place that you always turn to when you’re all out of ideas for dinner and the very same spot that has provided you with the comfort food you needed when you badly craved a perk-me-up.
Conceived in 2014, Diners’ Choice is an annual award that’s brought to you by dining app Chope, with the goal of bringing recognition to our favourite restaurants that have satisfied our bellies and left us happy and full.

A hot trend this year is definitely the rise of local food and flavours in many unexpected forms – one of which is found in sweet treats and desserts. Rising in popularity, in particular, is one that Singaporeans cannot do without and that is ondeh ondeh.
This delicate pandan-coconut pastry is a classic Indonesian kueh that has captured the hearts of many and is now finding its way into many menus around Singapore. In this list of ondeh ondeh desserts, perhaps you will find an ondeh ondeh treat that catches your fancy!
Since 2019 is about to come to a closure, it seems fitting for us to grieve over our losses of acclaimed eateries that have sadly departed our local shores — including those that are about to roll down their shutters for good.
Given Singapore’s competitive F&B industry with high rental fees and ever-changing consumer tastes, it is no wonder many chains have gradually lost their appeal. Though we have witnessed the rise, then fall, of well-loved establishments, rest assured there will be new, upcoming ones that are sure to take Singapore’s market by storm again!
So, brace yourself for a rollercoaster of emotions, as we announce 11 iconic eateries that we bid sayonara to this year.
October is a great month for ramen lovers! Not only do we have the legendary Ichiran Ramen’s pop-up stall and an abundance of other famed ramen booths setting up shop at Takashimaya’s Japan Food Matsuri, there is also the new “Ichiran-inspired” Gangsta Ramen at Tanjong Pagar Plaza.
What sets Gangsta Ramen apart from the usual ramen restaurants in Singapore is that they are the first place in Singapore to emulate Ichiran Ramen’s private ramen dining concept! Their prices are also NETT, with no GST or service charge.
Gluttons, it is time to prepare thy bellies for the biggest online food sale of the year!
