30 days Journey with Huiji Waist Tonic x Herbal Duck Noodles

About a month ago, I’ve embarked on a 30 days-with-Huiji-Waist-Tonic Journey. Basically, I consumed a capful of the herbal tonic twice a day, for 30 days. Now, prior to this post, I’ve definitely heard of Huiji Waist Tonic and had always associated it as “something good” for the waist (as the name suggests). And I was not wrong.

Food Review: Kanda Wadatsumi – Sublime Omakase Experience at Tras Street

I can’t believe it took me so long to discover this hidden gem in Singapore. I’ve been to quite a fair share of restaurants at Tras Street (Singapore) but Kanda Wadatsumi had totally gone off my radar, until now. Perhaps it is the inconspicuous frontage, but once I stepped into the restaurant, the modern ivory-colored walls emanate an intimate surrounding that’s almost in stark contrast to the generic exterior. Kanda Wadatsumi flies its fishes in from Japan Fisheries and Tsukiji Market, and Wagyu beef from Japan Agriculture. A quick look at their lunch menu revealed a good selection of set lunches and Omakase course…

Food Review: Burp Kitchen & Bar – Tanjong Katong’s New Kid On The Block

This intimate, amiable bistro is Burp’s second outlet. Located in a quiet neighborhood at Tanjong Katong, I was eager to try out the items on their interesting, American-street food inspired menu. Burp Kitchen & Bar has a healthy selection of draft, craft and dark beers. If beer is not your poison, there is a good range of cocktails / mocktails for you to unwind. Feeling peckish, we opted a few of the recommended items from the menu…
