Even though our affordable Teochew steamed fish lunch for two cost only $14, we felt like big spenders the other day. A normal lunch would be $3.50 per person. Fish choices are more expensive and are usually avoided at chye poong stalls. We felt rich that day and pointed at the largest one available.

Menbaka Fire Ramen Singapore at Orchard Cineleisure is the first overseas outlet of the famous Kyoto Ramen. We picked a weekday to visit to find out if there is still the long queue and to check out the fire ramen experience, the menu prices and what to expect.
Kamome Bakery is a Japanese bakery cum cafe that gets the Japanese community in Singapore all excited. It seems that the Japanese style bakery in Goldhill Plaza is at close as it gets to the small cozy bakeries found in Japan. However, even someone who has never been to Japan will be charmed by Kamome’s soft fluffy milk toast and a range of interesting and delectable breads and pastries.
