Since the announcement in late August, the much-anticipated Monga, founded by Taiwanese celebrity and comedian Nono, has finally opened its first-ever local outlet at Jem in Jurong East, serving up thick, fresh and juicy fried chicken cutlets!
If you are thinking that this is the first overseas outlet to join their more than 45 outlets in Taiwan, you’d be surprised to know that since its establishment in its home country, Monga has since expanded overseas to countries like Canada, USA, UK, Philippines and Malaysia!
If the name Prodigal Café seems to ring a bell, that’s because the eatery is the sister café of the now-defunct Prodigal Roasters which was previously located in the heartlands of Ang Mo Kio.
Now, the charming little café resides in a tiny space underneath a HDB block at Macpherson Lane, where it is home to yummy sandwiches, toasties and specialty coffee.
Taking over the space of the now-defunct D’Zerts Cafe is the newest hidden gem in the East of Singapore, The Forage Cafe by Thirteen Honey in Simpung Bedok. Their extensive menu features a plethora of all-day brunch, pasta and mains. What’s great is that they also are trying to incorporate their own farmed honey (from Malaysia) into all their dishes as a sugar replacement!
That’s not all! If you were a fan of D’zerts Cafe’s sweet creations, you’ll be happy to know that D’zerts still supplies bakes and desserts to The Forage Cafe.

The store will be opening at Century Square on the 4th of October 2019 and judging by the 4-hour queues at the Shilin Market event, be prepared for even longer queues here at their permanent store!

It is no secret that Bangkok’s Chinatown is a gluttons paradise that is home to rows of stalls that sell scrumptious local eats. It can be easy to be spoilt for choice here and if you just can’t decide on what to eat, we recommend that you give Nai Ek Roll Noodle a try.
Situated at the heart of Chinatown, Nai Ek Roll Noodle is a humble stall that specialises in —you guessed it — roll noodles, as well as some of the crispiest deep-fried pork we’ve ever tried.
The food here is so good that they’ve even earned themselves a place in the Michelin Guide.
