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...

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...

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...

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. And of course, being a huge fatty myse...

Since Project Açai first opened its doors a year back, more establishments have included açai smoothie bowls in their menu as a healthier dining option. The superfruit's no stranger to most, prized for its high levels of antioxidants with purported weight-loss and anti-aging benefits. That, and it's pretty delicious, seems to be what's helping it c...

White-washed walls, wood furnishings, and floor-to-ceiling windows seem to be the ID norm of every recent café - such is the direction taken by month-old café-bar Five by Five. Formerly November 8, the now-defunct waffle café has been re-branded, re-located and re-opened as Five by Five. It now joins the already massive F&B conglomer...

A key characteristic of most recent café-restaurants seem to be immense inaccessibility. That pretty much too describes The Refinery. Tucked deep in the industrial park along King George's Avenue, nestled among mechanic stores and garrages, one wouldn't take the 15 minute walk from Lavender MRT station unless specifically looking out for it....

Just around the corner of Melbourne-inspired The Lokal, is yet another quintessentially Australian F&B establishment: Luxe. Decked in chic-minimalist whites and woods, the beautiful large space at Keong Saik is home to Luxe's first venture off Australia. The new all-day dining venue hails from Bondi Sydney, hoping to bring Luxe Sydney's concept of...
