While we love Singapore’s duck rice, we admittedly prefer Bangkok’s duck rice a tad bit more. We don’t know how they do it but most of the ducks that we have tried here have turned out more succulent and tender as compared to the ones that we have had in Singapore.
While there aren’t as many stalls in Bangkok that sell duck rice as there are that sell chicken rice, we know a handful of good ones to recommend to you. One of them would be Pondtip Pratunam, a humble stall that sells an array of scrumptious Thai food which includes duck noodles and rice.

With today’s grand reveal, we are super excited to see which restaurants remain on this list and who some of the newer recipients are of the highly-prized Michelin Star. Whether you agree with this list if up to you to decide when you eventually pay them a visit after this announcement.

The legendary Ichiran is finally coming to Singapore! From 3 to 20 October 2019, Ichiran will be having a pop-up in Singapore at Takashimaya Square as part of the third edition of annual ramen festival Ramen Revolution at the Japan Food Matsuri event.
If you’ve ever been to Japan, you’ll know that ramen is a must-try item; leaving Japan without slurping down a bowl of this goodness is an absolute crime! There are a plethora of ramen shops scattered across Japan but one of the more famous brands that is high up on everyone’s list is the well-loved Ichiran.
Ichiran has been widely accepted as the god of tonkotsu ramen and they definitely set a high benchmark for a classic bowl of ramen. We are so damn excited that Ichiran Ramen is finally having a pop-up in Singapore (and hopefully a permanent shop next?!). That means that you no longer have to book a plane ticket to Japan just to satisfy your cravings for a bowl of the best ramen in the world.
Our team joined the queue at 10am during the opening on 3 October 2019 and we waited for almost 2 hours for our Ichiran Ramen! The queue is expected to get even longer, so get there early if you are planning to try it.
Yishun – the place where most Singaporeans poke fun at for their mysterious yet somewhat hilarious happenings. However, what some don’t know is that it’s a pretty poppin’ place filled with all sorts of hidden foodie gems! Just think cheap laksa, army stew and crispy har cheong gai!
Here’s a list of all the nosh we think are worth making a trip down to Yishun for – regardless of what crazy things you may find when you’re there!
While Bangkok is well-known for its shopping and food scene, it also boasts an incredibly rich and unique history. If you want to immerse yourself in Bangkok’s beautiful culture but you don’t know where to start, one of the places that you need to add to your Bangkok itinerary is the Grand Palace.
Located in the old city of Bangkok on the banks of the famous Chao Phraya river, this majestic, sacred landmark is nothing short of breathtaking. We recommend that you visit this along with other famous sites such as Wat Arun and Wat Pho, which are all a short distance from each other.
Located at 313 Somerset is LaLune Croissant. With the current craze over bubble tea and pretty pastries, LaLune is set to wow you with their colourful array of drinks and croissants full of delicious fillings.
LaLune’s drinks have zero preservatives and artificial flavouring, only using freshly-brewed teas and all-natural fruits. Their little tea bottles also add a wonderful touch being so compact.
Did we mention LaLune was opened by a local NTU graduate? It’s a great time to #SupportLocal with so many big franchises from overseas popping up in Singapore.

Each and every nook and cranny of this area is crammed with surprises and we can promise you that you will never run out of new things to try here.

After a night out of relentless tippling, perhaps one of the most comforting things to wake up to is a full English-style breakfast. Yes, we’re talking about to full monty here featuring nothing short of a few bangers (sausages), bacon, baked beans, toast, mushrooms, eggs and tomato.
It’s all fried, it’s messy but more importantly, the combination makes for one heck of a delicious mess. Whether you’re looking to treat a hangover or simply to eat your weight the way the Brits do, then here are 8 best places in Singapore to get the full breakfast works.
