Carrotsticks & Cravings – Rodyk Street

Having visited a number of places around last year, one that struck a strong impression was Carrotsticks & Cravings at Loewen for their stellar food and tranquil environment. Given how impressed we were with the first visit, it is little wonder why we decided to check out their second outlet at Rodyk Street after getting…

Thai Jing Jing – Opal Crescent

Having moved from Jalan Berseh Food Centre to the heartlands of Hougang Central a couple of years ago, Thai Jing Jing had been missed (by us) for their stellar Deep-Fried Garlic Pork and other delectable Thai cuisines after its permanent closure. It definitely came as a surprise to hear Thai Jing Jing’s comeback; a hiatus…

Alchemist – Khong Guan Building

Tai Seng and MacPherson seem to be a location in the spotlight in the cafe scene lately, with the opening of Prodigal Cafe and Ristr8to (within Chef Avenue) recently. Moving into the Tai Seng neighbourhood recently is Alchemist, which is a name that should be rather familiar with cafe-hoppers and coffee lovers. Operating two hole-in-the-wall…

Teppan Kappou Kenji – Tanjong Pagar Road

Teppan Kappou Kenji had been opened since November 2018, serving up Japanese teppanyaki dishes along Tanjong Pagar Road. Occupying the shop space beside Ginza Tendon Itsuki at Tanjong Pagar Road, Teppan Kappou Kenji adds to the myriad of Japanese cuisine options available in the neighbourhood. Unlike many other restaurants which choose to focus on Donburi…

Paper Rice Vietnamese Kitchen – Changi City Point

It seems that there is a trend of Vietnamese establishment opening across the island, with multiple independent restaurants sprouting up in various locations in Singapore. Having opened at Changi City Point recently, Paper Rice Vietnamese Kitchen is opened by the same folks behind the Arteastiq brand (which also runs Cajun on Wheels), and is one…

Nguan Roasted — Pioneer MRT Station

It is rare to come across a roast meat specialty store like Nguan Roasted, which seemingly aims to serve roast meats with a difference. Situated at the most unlikely of places, Nguan Roasted’s shop space is situated at the overhead bridge of Pioneer MRT Station. Occupying a hole-in-the-wall space, Nguan Roasted is decked almost like…

Paradise Gastronomy 食味堂 – GV Yishun

Paradise Gastronomy 食味堂 is a name that those who are in-the-know with the F&B scene should find pretty familiar, considering how they had been in business since a while ago at The Bencoolen. Taking over the former premises of now-defunct 糖心风暴甜品 Sweet Tornado Desserts at Yishun 10 where GV Yishun is also located, Paradise Gastronomy…

Lobsters and Ice Cream – New Bridge Road

Taking over the former premises of now-defunct Oyoge Taiyaki at New Bridge Road is Lobsters and Ice-Cream, specializing in lobster rolls and soft-serve ice-cream. Being situated right in front of the T-junction at North Bridge Road and Mosque Street, Lobsters and Ice-Cream is just a small kiosk that serves up only lobster and crab rolls,…

Pho Viet – Upper Thomson Road

Taking over the former premises of Old School Delights at Upper Thomson Road is Pho Viet, a new establishment that serves up Vietnamese cuisine. Situated at the main stretch of eateries up at Upper Thomson Road where Maneko Japanese Restaurant, Birdy’s, and One Man Coffee etc. are located, Pho Viet seemingly provides a new dining…

Lee’s Confectionery – Blk 343 Jurong East Street 31

Being located deep in the heartlands of Jurong East, Lee’s Confectionery is a patisserie that is situated in a location that is pretty unlikely for a concept of its kind. Lee’s Confectionery is no doubt a gem in the heartlands, especially considering the lack of cafes around the Jurong East area and how patisseries are…

Relish – Fraser Towers

Being opened by Chef Willin Low, Relish could be said as the spiritual successor to now-defunct Wild Rocket. Relish is a brand that is not a stranger to most in the Singapore dining scene. Having co-existed with Wild Rocket and Wild Oats for a while, Relish’s original concept at Cluny Court serves up a wide…

Sugar Thieves – Blk 333 Kreta Ayer Road

2018 may be coming to a close, but that does not stop F&B establishments from sprouting up as the year is coming to an end. Situated at the ground level of an HDB block, Sugar Thieves is a relatively new bakeshop that had recently opened its doors at Kreta Ayer Road just a few doors…
