I must admit that the whole concept of a soup-curry was quite the paradox for me. Sure, both are warm, comforting, hearty, reminds me of home. Both are meant to be enjoyed with a side of starch, and usually come with a myriad of other accompanying ingredients. But one's meant to be drank right from a spoon, and could simply be a meal on its own wit...

2016: what a year for local foodies you’ve been. I mean, the Michelin Guide awarded a fair number of local eateries a coveted spot in the Bib Gourmand list; cafés continued popping out all over the island; and restaurants, both local and international, have been upping their game with better and badder dishes.

Mention Japanese collagen hotpot, and franchise Tsukada Nojo Bijin Nabe most often comes to mind. With variety and options highly prized in Singapore’s dining scene, fans of the hearty dish would be pleased to know it is offered at several other restaurants - one of which is Torikin. Hailing from Fukuoka in Kyushu, Japan, Torikin brings authentic d...

Aside from Google, not many would expect a corporate headquarters to have the best dining options. A decent cafeteria, few chain restaurants and fast food eateries are usually more than one can ask for - so it was an immense surprise to hear about a great Peranakan café-restaurant located smack on the upper floors of Pico Creative Centre.

A local businessman's love for all things Thai, from culture to food, saw the creation of one of the most authentic Thai restaurants in Singapore. It started when engineer-turned-restauranteur Ron Poh was seeking such genuine Thai food, and decided instead to provide it and share his passion. From using charcoal to maintain heat consistency, import...
