We went for lunch recently at Cedele Bakery Kitchen in Raffles City and had an affordable and tasty yet healthy meal.

Souperstar : Fortune Favours the Brave


Two sisters in their twenties decided to start a food business that would serve “hearty meals that fuses the best of local and the world’s food heritage”. They bravely decided to offer popiah in a variety of flavours and pairing it with popular soups from around the world.  That was how Souperstar was conceived.  The first Souperstar outlet was in Eastpoint and there are now several outlets in Singapore including a popular one in the basement food hall of Tanjong Pagar Centre. As the saying goes, fortune favours the brave.

Pizza Maru – K Restaurant in Bugis+

Pasta at Pizza Maru Bugis+

The popularity of K-Pop and K-drama has meant that many Korean restaurants and Korean-style cafes have found success all over the world. Yet, it may be a little surprising that the Korean wave has brought to our shores a chain restaurant not known for Korean cuisine but for its pizza and Western food. Pizza Maru, a popular restaurant chain in South Korea with more than 600 stores internationally, has opened restaurants in Bugis+ and in Northpoint City. Besides the famous Korean-style pizza, Pizza Maru also offers a range of pasta and fried chicken as well as snacks and beverages.

Lunch at Halcyon & Crane, new cafe at Paragon Orchard Singapore


Halcyon & Crane is a new cafe at Paragon Orchard, Singapore. This new restaurant by the people behind Birds of a Feather has taken over the space on level 3 Paragon that previously housed O’Coffee Club. On our last visit to Birds of a Feather, we were impressed by the attractive decor and good service, a big leap from the usual bare industrial look of new cafes in Singapore. We were curious to see how the new Halcyon & Crane cafe would be like.
