Best gourmet sandwiches in Singapore

The most popular origin story of sandwiches is that it came about when, in the 18th century, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu, was too occupied at a gaming table and subsisted on a piece of beef in-between two slices of bread. So novel was this ingenious creation that the ‘sandwich’ was thereafter ensconced in culinary history. Indeed, one of life’s simplest pleasures has to be a...

Best steak frites in Singapore

Just as Australia and New Zealand have been arguing over who created the pavlova, the jury is still out on where steak frites was born – since both Belgium and France stake their claims as the inventor. Whatever the answer, this seemingly easy bistro staple is not easy to get right, including the accompanying sauce or herbed butter. Historically, rump steak was the cut of choice, but entrecôte...

Best Japanese-style bakeries in Singapore

Given that bread was hardly a staple in Japan until recent decades, it’s impressive how the Japanese have become masters at baking. The country has won the Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie (Bakery World Cup) twice over, in 2002 and 2012. It’s worth noting that, historically, breads have come out of the Japanese bakery or panya in two waves. The first arose in the late 19th century with the...

Best kueh salat in Singapore

Out of dozens of traditional kueh, one in particular has gained a modern appreciation, with a few establishments turning the three-bite snack into round cakes fit for birthday celebrations. Kueh salat has a simple two-layer composition: a bed of chewy glutinous rice topped with sweet, coconutty custard. Its colouring should be all-natural, provided by pandan leaves (or the rarer suji for a...

Best cinnamon buns in Singapore

The origin of the cinnamon bun is a sugar-coated mystery and occasionally provokes fierce debate. Regardless of the origin and preparation, there’s no denying that these whorls of sweet, dark cinnamon in rich, buttery pastry are impossible to resist.

Best caesar salads in Singapore

Superfoods and protein bowls are all the rage these days, but there’s something to be said about a classic caesar salad. Here’s our list of the most versatile toppings and sapid dressings in town.

Best pasta frutti di mare in Singapore

For a nation that loves carbs and seafood, there are few things more satisfying than a perfectly cooked plate of al dente pasta brimming with fresh catch. Literally translating to ‘fruits of the sea’, this dish likely originated in the seaside villages of Italy, where fisherman cooked what they couldn’t sell and served the seafood stew with pasta. Our favourite renditions of the lip-smacking...

Best quinoa bowls in Singapore

A convenient, all-in-one grain bowl is the trendy dine-in or takeaway option these days, hence the reason for the mind-boggling choices available. But we’re not interested in just any ordinary grain. We’re bowled over by one of the most underrated superfoods — the healthy and humble super grain — quinoa. Packed with fibre, vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients, this glutenfree South American...

Best beef sliders in Singapore

The beauty of the cocktail hour lies not only in the pleasure of boozy libations, but also in the bar bites that are so easy to put away. Nothing beats sinking our teeth into a scrumptious beef slider while on a bar crawl. Originally defined as a thin patty of ground beef, smashed and cooked on a griddle with onions, then topped with pickles and American cheese before being sandwiched between...

Best crème brûlées in Singapore

Delicate, yielding custard beneath a thin sheet of shatteringly crisp torched sugar topping… add to that the sweet scent of vanilla beans and toasty notes of burnt sugar crystals, and that just about sums up the definition of a sublime crème brûlée in our books. The origins of crème brûlée aren’t clear. Some reports point to Trinity College in Cambridge, England, as the birthplace of the...
