Silver Food News - Beauty In A Pot, Sakura International Buffet New Menu, Jade Restaurant's Yu Sheng

There is a growing trend in collagen hotpot recently, and the Paradise Group has joined in by introducing Beauty In A Pot, their first collagen hotpot concept restaurant in OneKM Mall.

There are only a few things I look out for in steamboat. Namely, the broth, the preparation of the ingredients and the service.

PappaRich Plus at OneKM Mall - Malaysian Comfort Food Done Well

I used to frequent Old Town White Coffee in the past for my Malaysian food fix. That is, until I visited Johor on a regular basis and discovered that Old Town's stuff was pretty much filtered down.

Since then, there has been hardly any decent establishments within our island to go to for some decent Malaysian fare. Until now, that is.

Black & Ink Cafe in Changi Road - Big Roy With a Big Heart

Black & Ink is opened by a fellow food blogger whom I have the privilege to know in the last few months. We know him as Eat With Roy, but Big Roy is not just big in size.

He has an enormous capacity for both his passion for coffee, and an even bigger heart in supporting social causes. And those are the main reasons he started his own cafe at Changi Road, just opposite Eunos MRT Station.

Turning Tip Top Curry Puff Into a Delicious Curry Puff Gratin, and Beef Rendang Puffs

I have always enjoyed Tip Top's curry puffs, or curry poks as we used to call them. The thing is, a singular curry puff is almost a meal in itself. And that can be quite tummy filling for me.

And curry puffs are one of those foods that adheres to the law of diminishing returns. The first bite is always great, but the last few bites will leave you feeling a bit heavy and bloated.

Promising New Cafes in Singapore - The Daily Press, 23 Jumpin and Nunsongyee

Yes, cafes have been the target of mainstream media for the last couple of months. It's hard to keep one going, half of opened cafes close after less than a year etc.

All this negativity in the media is not going to stop the growth of this particular sector of our F&B industry. Quite the opposite.

Looking Back at 2014 - It's More Than Just Being About Food

It is always more than just being about food. And 2014 has gone a long way to prove this point. What started as a year of exciting food opportunities, turned into something more. And more meaningful as well.

At the beginning of this year, the discovery of social enterprises like Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh led me to learn more about the people behind the scenes.
