Many hold Tanuki Raw in high regard not only because of their enticing happy hours and their affordable oysters, but mainly because these folks know how to guarantee a fun time through their remarkably innovative grub and tipples.
These are the same folks who inspired and more importantly popularised the low-cost Yakiniku Donburi—a heady bowl of sushi rice topped with strips of Angus short rib, doused in a truffle sauce and topped with a wobbly onsen egg.
A well-known gem for quality brunch item and strategic location near Somerset MRT station, Oriole Coffee + Bar has recently expanded their menu and upped their game in the local cafe and bar scene.

Izakaya Nijumaru is one hidden gem (literally) in Cuppage Plaza.
It is tucked at a corner on the second level of Cuppage Plaza and you wouldn’t otherwise walk past it unless you were particularly looking out for it. The nondescript outlet has been around for three decades. We actually only discovered it about seven years ago but it has since remained as a favourite of ours whenever we want a simple, affordable Japanese meal in Orchard Road.
But if you find it, we say you walk right in and treat yourselves to a good Japanese meal. You’d be pleased to know that the prices are very reasonable and the menu is comprehensive.

Oh how we love the comeback of churros. Churro101 has arrived in Singapore just a couple of weeks back and its reception has been very successful. After an old wave of churros slowly disappeared in Singapore, some smart entrepreneurs decided to rekindle it, and this time, in a Korean style – because anything Korean seems to work, no?
Hvala Waffle Bar, a food kiosk at the basement of [email protected], has just launched a new dessert that all of us in Singapore have been waiting for – the Hong Kong-style Egg Waffle with Soft Serve.
It is every bit photogenic, but is it anywhere near the original Oddies Foodies of Hong Kong?
