There’s nothing too groundbreaking about an Australian-style cafe in Singapore. We mean, Singapore is basically filled to the brim with them. But, one that jazzes up into a swanky Asian bar by night? Now, that’s a head-turner.
S l a t e . is the latest addition to Purvis Street, a small hip district that foodies flock to for a dignified brunch or laidback evening hangout. Opened by the team behind Miam Miam, this cafe-bar prides itself on its evolving menu which goes from hearty brunches to modern Asian tapas.
The founding team had lived in Melbourne for about a year before moving back to Singapore, bringing back with them Aussie-inspired brunches and secrets to a great cuppa.

For all their mind-boggling dishes and ground-breaking creations, it comes as a shocker that Spice World Hotpot has ceased its operations in Singapore. There has been no reason provided yet for their closure.
This hotpot establishment in Clarke Quay shot to popularity for their wild innovation that saw dishes such as teddy bear broths and metre-long meat platters. Some skeptics may have seen them as being over-the-top and gimmicky, but Spice World Hotpot proved them wrong with their dedication to quality and service.
The concept of omakase revolves around allowing the sushi chef to decide on the choice of dishes to serve his or her customers and will typically consist of a series of plates, beginning with the lightest fare and subsequently proceeding on to the heavier dishes.
There’s so much to love about this culinary style—from the trust that diners give the chef to the chef’s expertise in featuring a menu that encompasses only the freshest produce of the season. An omakase meal often starts off with an assortment of sushi, sashimi, cooked dishes and seasonal vegetables with common mainstays such as otoro (fatty tuna belly) and sometimes even premium ingredients with the likes of uni.
What makes omakase intriguing is the fact that you never know what to expect. No one really knows what the chef might serve because the dishes vary according to the season. Make no mistake that meals such as these do not necessarily come cheap, but if you’re hankering for a taste of Japanese omakase dining at its finest, here is our list of 10 best Japanese restaurants for omakase in Singapore.

Jay Chou fans, we hate to break the news to you but your favourite scallion pancake brand, Liang Sandwich Bar, has closed down all its outlets in Singapore without any explanation.
If you’re a fan of Jay Chou, you’ve probably had a taste of the flaky pancakes from this Jay Chou-endorsed brand. This pancake shop proudly displays the Mandopop singer’s face across their outlets, which serve up flaky, prata-like pancakes stuffed with a variety of fillings.
However, there is a twist to the situation since we first reported the closing of Liang Sandwich Bar on 17 Feb 2020.
According to a press release sent on 21 Feb 2020 by the Master Franchisee for South East Asia, Liang Group of Companies, the sudden closure of all outlets in Singapore was made solely by the local franchisee without proper consultation or authorisation from the Master Franchisee.
And that’s not all. Liang Sandwich Bar may not be closing in Singapore after all.
Maybe one of your dream destinations is Switzerland, where you get to enjoy a warm cheese fondue in a cable car while overlooking the white snowy mountains with the love of your life or tasting some rösti for breakfast made the Swiss-way.
Sadly, not all of us have the luxury or the time to travel all the way there.
But hey, don’t fret! Because here in Singapore at Wursthans Switzerland, you can savour Swiss delicacies without breaking your bank and experience what Swiss locals have for their meals. This restaurant is just steps away from Paya Lebar MRT!
Sydney is arguably the most visited part of Australia (sorry Melbourne). With must-sees such as the Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and Bondi Beach, it’s a hotspot for tourists and other locals from within Australia too!
Other than sightseeing spots, Sydney offers foodies a plethora of cuisines and cafes to choose from – from tantalizing brunch to sweet desserts, Sydney has them all. Even if you only have a few days to spend, you’ll be satisfied for sure; you’ll probably want to book a return trip after this though!
Here’s a 3D2N itinerary for Sydney for travellers who are visiting Sydney for the first time. Trust us when we say it won’t be your last.
If there is one thing we cannot live without, it is, undoubtedly, desserts. You name it, we love it. There is just something about that sweet, indulgent treat that never fails to light up our day. This time around, instead of going for our usual choice of ice cream and waffles, we decided to spoil ourselves with something a little different — an underrated, yet equally sinful treat: brownies.
We paid a visit to one of the most highly-raved brownie shops in Singapore lately: BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers. Nestled in Havelock II, they are a hole-in-the-wall takeaway kiosk near Clarke Quay MRT dishing out sinful pieces of chocolatey happiness, also known as dangerously addictive brownies. They also serve coffee.
Albeit hard to find, the joint was still constantly packed with eager customers waiting to sample BUNDT’s bite-sized goodies.
