Popular Hong Kong congee stall, Mui Kee, has opened a pop-up restaurant in Singapore. In partnership with Les Amis Group, the Hong Kong institution will start a six month-long pop-up at Casa Verde in Singapore Botanic Gardens.
Mui Kee itself has a long and rich heritage, but what draws its customer fan base is the unique taste and texture of the congee itself. Using fish broth, pork bones and other ingredients like century egg, this congee takes comfort food to a whole new level. Those familiar with the name would know just how amazing their fish broth porridge is, and for those who are not, just imagine silky-smooth, velvety congee that brims with flavour.
This is comfort food like you have never had before, and if you ever needed a solid pick-me-up on a cold rainy day (or any day) then Mui Kee is definitely one to consider.
Brace yourself for long queues as Malaysia’s Ah Mah Homemade Cake—famous for its castella cake—is opening their very first outlet here in Singapore on 14 July 2017.
For the uninitiated, this baked treat craze originated in Nagasaki, Japan, and it comprises sugar, flour, eggs, and starch syrup. The Taiwanese rendition, with additions such as cheese, inspired the cakes made by the Ah Mah brand.
Kurasu Singapore is a four-day-old coffee shop that is hidden within Odeon Towers. Originating from Kyoto, this is the Japanese brand’s first venture in Singapore and the cafe is sharing the venue with District6, a co-working office space.
Their minimalistic design, fragrant coffee aroma and soothing ambiance draw in many creatives and individuals who are able to enjoy some alone time or to catch up on work.

Singapore’s food scene is extremely globalised and diverse and we see many international food brands opening franchises here on our sunny island. However, there are still brands which we wished were more easily accessible.
Most of us do not have the luxury to travel very often to our favourite places to savour the food unique to the country/ city. These famous food brands would make our lives so much better if they had outposts here in Singapore.
From Dominque Ansel Bakery to Ichiran Ramen, here are 23 Famous Food Brands We Wish Were In Singapore!
25 Degrees Burgers & Liquor Bar—from the famous Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles—officially opens in Singapore.
A cult favourite among the Hollywood A-list, 25 Degrees Burgers and Liquor Bar brings its signature West Coast flavour to Singapore. On the menu, there are five burgers, milkshakes and classic cocktails. Here’s what you can expect.
Lab Made, Hong Kong’s popular Nitrogen Ice Cream Laboratory is opening its first outlet in Singapore.
Lab Made makes its ice cream from scratch using real ingredients without any additives, colourings or preservatives. And its outlet in Hong Kong is a perpetual showroom where anyone is welcome to look through the open-concept kitchen to watch the preparation of the ice cream.
We wonder if the Singapore outpost would be similar.
Popular UK Chain Pret A Manger is opening in Singapore next year.
Pret A Manger is a global chain that specialises in organic coffee and natural food. Today, there are more than 350 Pret A Manger outlets across the globe and you can find them in countries such as China, Dubai, France, United States and of course United Kingdom – where the brand was born.
We have always been fans of Pret A Manger’s wholesome gourmet sandwiches and we make it a point to drop by for a quick lunch each time we visit London. But Singaporeans need not wait till their next vacation to relish Pret A Manger’s hearty dishes, for it is opening a store by June 2017 in Changi Airport Terminal 3.
Character cafés are on the rise here in Singapore and adding on to the ever-growing list is the spanking new Gudetama Café Singapore. Gudetama is Sanrio’s latest character and quite possibly the current most popular one. It is no doubt that the whole world is in love with this adorable lazy egg.
Officially opening its doors to the public on 30 November 2016, Gudetama Café Singapore will be serving a myriad of cute Gudetama-themed desserts that will make your hearts melt. We were thrilled to step into the café with cosy lighting and intimate egg-shaped booths around. Spanning a large area of 2,300 square feet, the cafe at Suntec City can sit up to 112 people. Of course, expect snaking long queues in the first few weeks.
Here are some of the dishes you can expect from Gudetama Café Singapore.
