Best cold brew coffee in Singapore

Cold brew coffee, a more refreshing quencher than your usual java, is the go-to beverage of the trend-chasing millennial set. The extraction process, which is simple but protracted, involves either fully immersing the coffee beans in cold water or steadily dripping water through the beans. A much longer brew time – compared to normal coffee – of two to 24 hours, and the specific use of cold...

Best brioches in Singapore

Brioche has its origins in France, where a good amount of rich, golden butter gives it a distinct fragrance and cake-like quality. It is typically washed with egg for a glossy appearance and baked in a classic shape of a fluted bottom with a protruding top in a brioche pan, though there are other variations like braids, rings and mini buns. The soft, flaky texture makes it perfect for bread...

Best gin fizzes in Singapore

Drink to the New Year with this carbonated gin-based highball. The gin fizz, which originated in America, is the most well-known tipple from the fizz family and can be likened to a sparkling sour courtesy of its fresh, citrusy notes. Its popularity peaked in the late 19th and early 20th century, and gave rise to variations such as New Orleans’ Ramos gin fizz, named after its creator, and the...

Best cereal prawns in Singapore

Cereal prawns are a quintessential favourite in Chinese restaurants because of its addictive combination of succulent prawns and fragrant, crunchy cereal. Created in our local tze char kitchens, this dish is perfected by deep-frying prawns in an heady mixture of butter, Nestum cereal, curry leaves and chilli for the ultimate gratification. Start your 2016 on a sinful note with our favourite...

Best strawberry shortcakes in Singapore

Strawberry shortcakes have gone through quite an evolution over the years: once distinctly characterised by its mix of shortbread, cream, and strawberries, sponge variations with whipped cream toppings have grown common. Often lighter and airier than their denser fruit cake cousins, strawberry shortcakes perfectly capture the holiday mood with their cheery colours. Here are our top 10 to add...

Best butter chickens in Singapore

One of the most iconic dishes in Indian cuisine, butter chicken – or murgh makhni in Hindi – is said to have originated in the 1950s at the Moti Mahal restaurant in Old Delhi. Its simple, highly adaptable make-up of tandoor-cooked chicken in a rich, tangy tomato cream sauce makes it a popular mainstay in Indian restaurants from Tokyo to Turin. The epicure team got its fill of myriad variations...

Best kushiyakis in Singapore

You may think of kushiyaki as simple skewered meats and vegetables, but their unpretentious presentation belies the precision that go into grilling them. A kushiyaki done well should yield a woody or smoky aroma, and ingredients that explode with flavour. There’s a certain charm in the partaking of kushiyaki – your senses heighten the moment the skewers are served right off the grill and onto...

Best CBD lunch deliveries in Singapore

Want to grab lunch but can’t leave the office because you’re running a deadline or simply can’t take the midday heat?

Taste isn’t the only consideration here. Freshness of...

Best crab bee hoons in Singapore

It’s a delicate balance – ensuring thick rice noodles remain springy in a sweet, milky broth that doesn’t overwhelm with its hints of ginger, pepper or the smoky goodness of the claypot it’s cooked in. There’s also a dry version (this list features both), where thinner rice noodles are tossed in a hot wok before stewing in a broth until every strand is permeated with similar sweetness. The...

Best quiches in Singapore

When it comes to this savoury tart, there’s no concession for store-bought dough. Crusts (often a pâte brisée or flaky pie dough) should be handmade and preferably blind-baked to stay crisp enough to contain the slightly quivering custard within. Yet, its buttery richness should crumble and melt in your mouth. This is not the time for calorie-counting either – full-fat dairy makes for eggy...
