Craving for some Japanese Curry Rice when you are doing your shopping along Orchard Road? I’m sure you will be able to find one Japanese restaurants that sell this but if you are looking for something similar and cheaper, try Udon GEON and I’m sure you will love it just like we do :) Located within Wisma Atria’s Food Republic, Udeon GEON Japanese Tonkatsu has become a hot favourite among it’s customers ever since it was added to the menu. At Udon GEON, crispy fried tonkatsu lies on a bed of rice with delectably rich and thick curry, which is extremely flavourful as tonkotsu stock was added as the soup base, instead of water.

Kitchener complex is located just right behind V Hotel at Lavender and it’s only less than 5 mins walking distance from Lavender MRT station.

GastroSmiths, so far the Best Food served in the Cafe

Gastrosmiths was known as The Humble Loaf, which used to be located at B1 of Katong Shopping Centre which i didn’t visit before. Previously serving mainly simple sandwiches, cakes and coffee, Gastrosmiths is currently located along Beach Road and Tan Quee Lan St, serving dishes and desserts with a slant towards French, Italian and Japanese influences.

We’re really having a hard time deciding on which to order. SO, we grab hold of the super friendly, and cute waiter for his recommendation.

Density Launches The First-Ever Frozen Custard Dessert Store in Singapore

The first-ever frozen custard store has been launched in Singapore, bringing the 100-year-old traditional super-premium ice-cream from the U.S.A. to our shores. Velvety-smooth and lusciously creamy, frozen custards are lower in calories and sugar, and made with natural ingredients such as milk, cream and eggs. Density, the chosen brand name, describes the low levels of air incorporated into the making of frozen custard, which in turn allows less use of sugar and more of the ‘good stuff’. Located at 4 Short Street, Density’s flagship store is housed in a historical shophouse, at the junction of Selegie Road and Rochor Canal Road. Taking inspiration from the bustling boardwalk of Coney Island, New York City, from where frozen custard was first served, the 800 sqft shophouse store features elements of the amusement park with a life buo feature and wall murals depicting its origins. Frozen custard is a super-premium type of ice-cream, ahead of premium hard-scoops and gelatos and because of its low overrun and high butterfat content, there is also less need for sugar, making the frozen custard a healthier dessert choice, as it is lower …
