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...

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...

Brunch; what an absolutely boring word. I remember when “brunch” use to literally mean “breakfast + lunch”, representing that odd meal of the day that didn’t really quite fit in either categories. Now it seems to be the word for describing casual eateries: be it cafés, dim sum restaurants, or even messy hawker fare, “brunch” seems to cover it all.

Those who frequent Taiwan would most probably be familiar with Dazzling Café: it's Victorian decor, pastel hues, and picture-perfect desserts have made the chain popular amongst locals and tourists alike. Brought onto our shores by the Savoury Creations group last April, Dazzling Singapore has been commanding equally large crowds for its renowned S...

Pan-anything cuisine is always tricky to attempt: one runs the risk of being called pretentious and over-adventurous; not pushing the boundaries nearly enough; or at worst ruining the original dishes. Remarkably there have been several brave endeavours in Singapore, few of which are by the CRE8 Group. The homegrown F&B company is behind huge succes...

One of the first things Chef Vincent said to us was "Almost all our mains are sous vide." That got us really curious: isn't sous vide a technique more often employed in fine-dining (read: pretentious) establishments?

 

But no, not at Sunrise Bistro & Bar at least. Chef Vincent uses this French cooking technique for very practical purposes, like ensur...

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...
