"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...

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...

Everyone who’s been to Japan knows the Japanese love their afternoon tea. Quaint little cafés packed with Japanese housewives chatting and socialising over dainty cakes and cups of tea are a common sight. Of course Singapore's no stranger to this, with our multitude of chi-chi coffee hangouts - one of which is the recently opened Watanabe Coffee....

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...

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.
