Yentafo Kruengsonge Kallang Wave Mall

Food Review: Yentafo Kruengsonge – famous Thailand’s Pink Noodles at Kallang Wave Mall


If you are a regular traveler to Bangkok, you would be familiar with Yentafo – a distinctively pink noodle dish in Thailand. The “pinkiness” comes from the fermented soybean paste added to the soup. It imparts a distinctive sweetness and essence to the broth.



Although it’s not as popular as Thai Boat Noodles, Yentafo is a staple choice of noodles amongst the locals.



If you are not aware, Yentafo Kruengsonge is an authentic Thai yentafo brand with 28 outlets in Thailand and two in Laos. In Singapore, this is the third outlet after the opening of its first outlet at Cathay Cineleisure Orchard in November last year. The second outlet is at One@KentRidge.

Kai Garden Cantonese Restaurant

Food Review: Kai Garden at Marina Square


Well known for their exquisite and excellent dim sum, Kai Garden has become the latest addition to my list of favorite Cantonese restaurants.

Hansul Korean Dining Bar food review

Food Review: Hansul Korean Dining Bar – Modern Korean Drinking and Dining Experience in Tanjong Pagar


Hansul Korean Dining Bar is the latest addition to hit the Korean themed dining scene in Tanjong Pagar. Officially opened in Jan 2017, entrepreneur / owner Haden Hee plans to revolutionize the Korean dining scene in our city.

Hansul means ‘bottoms up’ in Korean and it houses the most extensive selection of Korean liqueurs in Singapore. In Korea, the drinking plus food culture is an essential element, most of the dining bars stay open till the wee hours and so does Hansul – the daily operating hours are from 5pm – 6am.


I’m a huge fan of Makgeolli (rice wine) and the range of flavors available here is pretty impressive.

Peach Makgeolli, Seoljungmae, Choga Woori Rice Makgeolli, Cha Eul Su Rok (Apple Soju)

Extensive range of Korean liqueurs not found anyway else in Singapore.
