Decked out in leather couches, deep wood furnishings and all the things you’d expect out of an Ernest Hemingway novel, modern cigar bars are without a doubt a notch higher in terms of austerity and remains to this day, a gentleman’s hangout.
At many such cigar joints, you can enjoy a good old Cuban cigar with a bottle or glass of fine whisky or simply a black coffee. Step into one and you’ll immediately feel removed from the bustle of city life. There truly is no better way to enjoy a quality smoke tan at any one of these 6 cigar and whisky bars in Singapore.
It has become quite an apparent trend that many restaurant chefs—some even hailing from prestigious hotels—have decided to hang up their aprons to pursue their own businesses, operating in hawker stalls instead.
Perhaps it’s due to the alleviated pressure, or maybe these veterans just want to settle down and finally do something that they can wholeheartedly call their own. Either way, it’s always a new reason to get excited whenever we hear of such news. To enjoy high-ses food at low-ses prices, here is our list of 6 hawker stalls opened by ex-restaurant chefs.

Of all the tremendous amounts of cooking methods available to us, be it fancy or rustic, barbecue still remains one of our all-time-favourite ways to have food cooked. It’s hard not to give in to a platter of smoky, seared meat, and thanks to a slew of new openings, the barbecue trend is bigger than ever in Singapore.
Nearly every culture has their own form of barbecue, in fact, the whole concept of barbecue dates back to caveman times where food was literally cooked over an open fire on a spit (or a stick). Now, with Singapore playing host to so many varieties of cultural influences and cuisines, we get to enjoy so many varieties.
Whether it’s a sweet, marinated Korean bulgogi beef you crave, good-old Louisiana-style baby back ribs, Filipino pork lechon or even a humble mookata, here is our guide to 13 BBQ restaurants in Singapore.
Whether you are a fashionista or someone who appreciates a gorgeous building, you will fall in love with the Stylenanda Pink Hotel, an iconic building in the heart of the Myeongdong district in Seoul, South Korea.
Stylenanda Pink Hotel is Stylenanda’s themed flagship store in Myeongdong but many will definitely mistake it as an actual hotel because of its exterior; the exterior of the hotel reminds us of a quaint little hotel in a European suburb with an adorable pink front, retro windows and a LED light sign.
The Stylenanda Pink Hotel spans a total of 6 levels and each level is themed and designed beautifully. If you venture all the way to the highest floor, there is a rooftop terrace area where you can just chill and relax after a long day of shopping. Here is what you can expect from the Stylenanda Pink Hotel in Myeongdong, Seoul, South Korea.
To put it simply, the direct Hokkien translation of ‘zi char’ is “cook and fry” and zi char stalls in Singapore offer a wide range of dishes that are much like home-cooked meals.
Zi char is a perennial favourite dining style when we plan big gatherings. The idea of sharing plates of Chinese food in a boisterous setting is really quintessentially Singapore! It is relatively simple and cheap as opposed to a posh restaurant and the loud chatter and bursts of laughter over the eating make up the ambience.
We’ve gathered a list of the more popular spots for zi char in the far West of Singapore. Here are 10 zi char eateries in Jurong to take your gatherings to. There’s even the halal SingFood Stall and De’ Beer Garden with a hot chick on fire for Westies to impress their friends with.
