"Why is it called Sideways?" L asked.

"Well, cause that's how you're gonna be growing after all the food we'll have."

I meant that as a joke; but after my first visit I've deduced that it's not an entirely impossible outcome, considering how crazy delicious their food is.  

Of course, that wasn't what they were going for. As explained on their we...

One of my biggest foodie complaints towards the end of 2019, was that there doesn't seem to be a dedicated, or even good, place for moules-frites in Singapore. Back when I travelled around Europe for abit, one of my fondest memories were of running on Bruges' cobblestone roads, utterly drenched from the crazy rain and cussing at my useless overturn...

In case you haven’t heard, sustainability is the In-Thing now. Doesn’t matter if we’re over and mass-producing metal straws that’ll probably be chucked in a pile of stuff; or if veganism causes illegal deforestation to make way for planting more avocados and soy; or if plant-based diets do not actually reduce our carbon footprint, even potentially...

If there were an image for "Hotpot Slut" my face'd turn up. I'd pick hotpot for a meal any time any day, if there weren't anything else in particular I was craving. So strutting along in Somerset we were thinking of grabbing some grilled skewers for lunch, when I saw a huge sign for Little Sheep Hot Pot just screaming at me. Of course, hotpot for l...

I love Netflix's Ugly Delicious. Aside from how amazing all the food looks, David Chang's commentary keeps me glued to the screen. It's hilarious at times of course, but more often than not I find some of the things he said, the most casual of comments even, to really resonate. Like how he reiterates through the docuseries that the ugliest, messies...

If you saw my guide to the Top 10 Meals in Melbourne I enjoyed last year, you'll understand that all I do in Melbourne is eat, eat, and eat. Now I visit Melbourne around thrice a year, each time for 2 weeks thereabouts. Take 1+1, and go figure how many meals I've had. 

So you'll also understand when I say that on my nth visit, I was really begi...

I have this thing: before writing about the spaces I've been to, I'll do a quick Google to see what others think and have written about the space — y'know to make sure I don't get my facts all wrong and that. Top headliners of Five Oars all had the words "Aussie", "Melbourne-inspired" and the likes in them, which was kind of tell-tale yet annoying...

I must admit feeling rather uninspired when it comes to dining out of late. I mean, there's only so far eggs on toasts, pancakes, burgers, and the usual lot can take you. After awhile it all becomes a tad dry and repetitive don't you think? But the problem with being a foodie is, when friends gather and make plans to catch up over some chow, you're...

No more "hidden gem". I've seen this phrase thrown around so much of late, it's getting really dry. Besides Singapore's just so damn big, how "hidden" can any place be? 

I've described places as such before so...guilty as charged (with my hands held high in disgrace), but word of The Glasshouse's been spreading before they've even opened their doors...

To be honest I never got the affogato. If I wanted a good cuppa, I’d just settle for a regular black coffee with all its lovely aromas and scents clearly discernible. If I wanted a milky or sweet coffee, I’d be more than pleased with the humble and awesome kopi. Get it beng if you need something cold. And if I wanted dessert, I’d have gone all out...
