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.
Bee’s Knees at The Garage, nestled within Singapore Botanic Gardens, is a hideout away from the hustle and bustle of the city that allows you to dine within lush greenery, which makes it a perfect spot for weekend brunch.
The pet-friendly cafe serves a range of western dishes and specialises in pizza, pasta, sandwiches and desserts. Drivers should go by Cluny Park Road for direct access to Bee’s Knees.
Walk up a small pathway to a historical building which is home to two dining establishments—Bee’s Knees on the ground level and Botanico at the Garage right above. READ ON

Singaporeans are a disgruntled lot. We complain about everything under the sun, and about the sun as well! The weather is too hot and humid for anything outdoors and so we hide in the air conditioned comforts of shopping malls. Then we bemoan the lack of things to do. This never ends, does it? Why not bear the heat, explore the green spaces we have and marvel at the beauty of nature? You may even find some hidden surprises.
Casa Verde is one of those surprises. Very few dining establishments can boast of being at the doorsteps of nature. What’s more? It is located in the heart of the city, nestled in a quiet corner of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The vibe is relaxed, with pets roaming freely in the alfresco area and people chilling after a hike in the park.
Food For Thought Cafe is one of those places that immediately come to mind whenever someone asks me to recommend a place that serves decent food at affordable prices.
They have recently closed down their original branch at North Bridge Road, and shifted to a much bigger location at Singapore Botanic Gardens. Well, it is probably an understatement to say that it is much bigger. The new outlet can easily accommodate more than 200 people. This is definitely great news for regulars who always frequent the cafe.
