About The Missing Pan   The Missing Pan is known for their unique spin on brunch food, like the perfectly-cooked 62 Degree Eggs Benedict and their French Toast Salpicon.

About Millenia Walk   If you’ve been skipping Millenia Walk because you thought there was only “furniture” and “atas brands”, you’ve been missing out big time. Contrary to popular belief, there’s a lot more to Millenia Walk than Harvey Norman and bespoke furniture brands.

Millenia Walk is home to more than 30 restaurants and food specialty stores and it also features a 280-metre long food street offering Singapore’s only Park and Dine concept. Yes, that means instead of navigating...

With that in mind, I was thrilled to try their new menu. The items at Kushi Dining Bar are only available as part of a buffet, which is priced between $41.90 to $128 per adult...
