"At the heart of Grain Traders is a belief in feeding and treating people right, without compromise."


Slightly over a week-old, Grain Traders is already seeing long lunch queues. The 3-unit establishment sits within the new CapitaGreen building a mere 5 minutes walk from Raffles Place MRT station - a huge and wonderful spot for lunch indeed. What...

Newly opened Curious Palette has been garnering insane media attention, making to lists the likes of Her World's "hottest new eateries" and The Straits Times' "Open for Business". Not surprising given it's the fourth business by Ryan Tan. The student-turned-entrepreneur is the famed barista behind familiar names like Strangers' Reunio...

We all love foreign cafés with their slightly novel brunch items, beautiful industrial-chic décor, and especially good coffee, so much that few - including yours truly - have bemoaned the lack of quality local ones. It's easy to forget how local entrepreneurs have less capital to start with (hence inaccessible locations and inferior IDs) and possi...

Roast Coffee & Eatery's most known for its coffee, having been mentioned in several food and travel guides. As the winners of the national Barista Championship in 2012, you can be sure Roast is dedicated to pulling its customers a great cuppa joe. What makes Roast stand out from the multitude of coffe joints in Bangkok however, is the incredible fo...

We first heard about D'ARK for its coffee. It's not as high profile as other good coffee joints in Bangkok - such as Roots, Roast, or Casa Lapin - and we only found out about it through browsing our Instagram feed; but it's definitely nowhere inferior. In fact it's possibly better, cause less social media buzz means less hubbub and a more relaxed e...

Located within the old Singapore Badminton Hall, is Brawn & Brains (what a cutesy name!) - another member of the third wave coffee movement. They have earned a name for pulling great cuppas, and recently revamped to include a savoury menu and accomodate larger crowds.


Unlike most hipsteresque cafés, B&B sounds hard to locate but...

After You is a popular dessert chain in Bangkok, most famed for its colourful variety of Shibuya Toasts. While the dessert's not native to Thailand, and definitely not uncommon, After You's renditions are so highly sought after it's not surprising to find long queues any hour of the day.


They have 11 branches across Bangkok, with 3 in the Siam...

Touted by some to be one of the best cafés of 2014, Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters at Upper Thomson remains one of the more popular spots for brunch and coffee. It sounds inaccessible, but is actually a mere 10 minutes walk from Marymount MRT station. Smack in the middle of Sin Ming, Pacamara stands out with its whitewashed exterior (and interio...

Assembly Coffee is a quaint café located at Evans Road Lodge, right smack between The Wine Company and Mr Prata. Founder and Head Barista Daphne Goh started Assembly hoping to share her love and passion for coffee; thus it's no surprise that Assembly prides itself as being part of the third wave coffee movement, catered towards the growing com...

The first time we visited The Bravery, it was for a simple quick bite and coffee. That, and having left my camera at home, mandated a second visit regardless of the experience. 


Another F&B venture by the folks behind The Plain and Ronin, The Bravery shares many similarities: it too follows a minimalist, industrial interior designing; uses the...
