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...

Is word of a good apple pie enough to get you hunting around in town, amidst an abundance of dining options, for a tiny café?

When you're out traipsing around town, deadbeat from walking, hogged down with bags and bags of shopping, and really just in need of a cushy chair and a spot of tea, you're going to jump at the first cafe you see. Doesn't mat...

"Omg you're gonna LOVE the food there!" said everyone

That's not all there is to Melbourne of course. There're beautiful parks, lovely museums, a bustling literature and arts scene...ok who am I kidding it's definitely the food I was most excited about. So what did I do when I finally got my arse there? Café-hop, caffeine-hop, stuff myself silly w...

Anyone who says Philly Shack's the first people to bring the renowned Philadelphia cheesesteak to our little red dot clearly doesn't know their sh*t. Before #cheeseporn really became a thing, Botak Jones has been whipping up their own BJ Cheesesteak along with other American favourites. Then came along the little heartland store Yellow Submarine, n...
