About The Beast   Priding itself as Singapore’s first southern kitchen and bourbon bar, The Beast features classic dishes from the Southern United States (think fried chicken and waffles), replete with 30 kinds of Bourbon whiskeys.

Student Meals   Back when I was still in school, money was always a problem for me - I never had enough! Hanging out with my friends after school would cost me my whole week's allowance, and going out for a simple meal or date at a decent restaurant required weeks of savings. It is almost impossible to eat out in Orchard with a budget of less than $20.  Photo Credit: biteclubsg Nevertheless, there are many restaurants in town who feel the pain of students. Offering massive student discounts, these eateries make themselves so affordable that it makes me wish that...

If you didn’t already know, Swensen’s rolls out promotional menus from time to time to refresh and heighten diners’ experiences. Given how food-crazy Singaporeans are, it is impossible for restaurateurs to ignore Singaporeans' increasing demands for the new trending dish - the Lobster Roll.  The Lobster Roll is the latest fad for many Singaporeans. You see pictures of the glorious Lobster Roll everywhere, from Instagram and Facebook feeds to blogs and newspapers.  Swensen’s latest offerings include The Boston Lobster Roll and...

Singapore's Food Culture   Coffee shops and hawker centres have defined Singapore for the past 40 years. It is still heartwarming to see the old uncles and aunties frying plates of char kway teow and old makciks serving plates of nasi padang. No doubt, the food we grew up eating were absolutely delicious.  In recent years. we’ve seen these food stalls evolve from hot and sticky hawker centres to well furnished, clean and air-conditioned food courts. Dining in comfort has become a necessity to most Singaporeans, albeit with slightly steeper prices.  First established in 1995, Foodfare aims to serve the working...

About MindChamps PreSchool   The last time I stepped into a pre-school was three years ago - I was trying out as a teaching assistant during my school holidays then, having always liked children. My interest in pre-school education led me to take a closer look at the industry, to gain a better understanding of its inner workings. It was then that I came across MindChamps, one of Singapore’s premium pre-schools. MindChamps PreSchool has established its reputation since its launch 6 years ago, recently bagging the top award in the 2014 Influential Brands study in the Pre-school Education category. I was...

About Toast Box   The first Toast Box I remember seeing was the one located in the basement of Wisma Atria. At that time I thought it was just another cafe trying to sell traditional kopi in Orchard Road. Many years later they’re still there, and today they have 65 outlets all across Singapore.So what differentiates Toast Box from all the other kopi cafes around? And how did they clinch the Top Brand award in Influential Brands Asian Café Category? Other than the fact that they are usually found next to a BreadTalk outlet, we take a closer look at 10...

About Sugarhall   Sugarhall features unconventional beats of Jamaican Reggae & old-school ska, lightbulbs in mason jars suspended by hemp ropes with a wood-clad interior evoking a rustic ambience. Their bartenders are dressed in checks and nothing says modern barnyard more than Sugarhall - the latest (well, almost) entrant to Amoy Street’s bar scene. Conceived 5 months ago by the same folks behind neighbour Jigger and Pony, Sugarhall prides itself as the first rum-based grill bar in Singapore, standing by the concept of fun-dining and honest flame-grilled goodness. Former sous chef at SKIRT Steakhouse at W Hotel, Chef Polo Seah leads...

About Jollibean   Growing up in the 1990s, I remember the times when my grandmother would pick me up after school and we would head across to the hawker centre to get my favourite tau huey and mee jiang kueh. These were simple food, extremely cheap and yet mouth-wateringly addictive. 20 years on, times have changed. From busy businessman to young school kids rushing in between school and enrichment classes, every segment of our society has evolved to being pressed for time. Many of the best traditional stalls selling these local delights have since disappeared. But thankfully, we still have local...
