Fishball Khin : More than just delicious handmade fish balls

It's neither bouncy nor springy, but the handmade fishballs here have a pleasant chewy texture that are good telling signs of more fish than flour. Fishball Khin is an all-day eatery in Ang Mo Kio that probably needs no introduction for regular fans of fishball noodles. In fact, it's the place that my family would go when we get bored of the food at the hawker center across my house since it is in the same area.

Wildseed Cafe & Bar : A Blooming Seed in Seletar Singapore

It feels like a walk through British colonial times as I stepped into this sprawling two-storey black and white bungalow in Seletar Park Lane, formerly the residential area of RAF Base Commander and other senior offices. 

A new lease of life has been injected into this area with the establishment of the Summerhouse, an integrated multi-concept destination made up of the Summerhouse Dining Room and Balcony Bar, Wildseed cafe and complementary facilities such as an edible garden, florist and coffee roaster. 

Given such remarkable surroundings, it would be easy to surmise that the food is perhaps of secondary importance. Not so. As the name of the place evokes a strong connection back to nature, expect some nature-inspired, farms-to-table cuisine whipped up by the Chef Florian Rider who has a wealth of experience at Michelin-started restaurants including La Belle Époque in Germany and Alma by Juan Amador in Singapore

京都祇園 あのん Gion Anon : Japan's first bean paste specialty cafe

Do you like anko (bean paste) that is commonly found in traditional Japanese sweets? 

Most people I know do not because it tends to be too sweet and cloying. However, I think A-non will most likely change how we look at anko. Opened in Gion early this year, Anon serves Okashi that revolves around the theme of "An" but in a non-traditionalist way. At least it did change my perspective of "an" because I realized how versatile it could be used in desserts. I found myself liking bean paste even more after my visit.
