Singaporeans have been enjoying Nestle products like Milo, Nescafe and Maggie Mee for a long time, 100 years to be exact, for Nestle has been in Singapore since 1912! As you can imagine, this is a pretty huge milestone for any organization, and Nestle has planned a whole year of celebrations and activities to commemorate their amazing journey with us. The latest activity is taking place in the digital space, with Nestle’s launch of their iFeedback App!
Tiong Bahru Bakery by Gontran Cherrier adds to the growing list of artisan bakeries sprouting up across the island. I much prefer and welcome this development compared to more indie cafes specializing in coffee, there is so much more to experiment with bakeries!
Other than quality food, dining companions who can hold both their conversations and stomachs are definitely needed for a good buffet experience. And that was what I got when I visited The SQUARE at Novotel Singapore on the invitation from John, their marketing and direct sales manager, to try out the restaurant’s new enhanced buffet spread.
Small cup of 2 flavours, $2.90 with discount, must be one of the best value local ice creams around. As usual Tom’s have a wide variety of innovative flavors, but I settled for Green Tea and Hazelnut. Their green tea is not sweet at all, with a strong slightly bitter matcha flavor. Very good for those without the sweet tooth! Would have preferred the hazelnut to have a stronger nutty taste.

Ramen joints are aplenty in Singapore and Miharu is one of the few places that have remained consistently on the tip of people’s tongues. Located at Gallery Hotel, I finally got the chance to try them when I happened to be in the River Valley area. Expectations of my ramen dinner was pretty high after years of recommendations from friends.
