Calling all Mushroom Lovers – y...

Explodingbelly is never a fan of steamboats – not even during reunion dinners and it’s never the place I’d suggest when I’m out for a gathering. However, when I heard about a mushroom centric steamboat place, I knew I had to visit, at least once. Anyway it just struck me – what’s the difference between […]

OMG?! Ben 10? POWERPUFF GIRLS? WE BARE BEARS? Adventure time?! My childhood (read: current) favorites collaborating with my favorite soup place in Singapore? NO WAY. I can actually hear my equally childish friends squealing with delight now. Well I guess this one hits right at home because unlike the usual Japanese character cafes which usually […]

Taipei, Taiwan – Get Your Sweet...

All you Explodingbelly readers should be glad that there’s finally an English review for Ten Ten Den Den 點點甜甜. Don’t believe, you all go google tentendenden now. But first, let me rant about how ulu this cafe is. After a good 15 mins walk from the nearest train station at Banqiao – winding through the […]

Shinjuku, Tokyo – Fuunji, best ...

Ever since my first trip to Japan, I’ve discovered the amazing alternative to ramen – TSUKEMEN. What is this? Basically tsukemen is ramen lor with their broth and noodles served separately, then dipped and eaten. The broth of a tsukemen tends to be richer and more concentrated, to the consistency such that it’s kinda like […]

Man Man Unagi Opens ANOTHER Outlet at...

“I forgot how good this tastes like..” – Me, when I took a first bite into the Hitsumabushi.  Honestly, Explodingbelly isn’t quite a fan of unagi; it’s like I do eat unagi but I don’t see myself going back to one place again, and again, and… again, for just unagi. But with Man Man, I […]

Just look at that toast. Take in all of its beauty. Now, just take it all in. HOW TO NOT HUNT IT DOWN WHEN YOU’RE AT TAIPEI? Comida, located a good 10-15 minutes walk from the nearest MRT station, either Zhongshan station or Shuanglian station, is literally a hole in a wall cafe. Its nondescript […]

If you’re observant enough, you could probably guess which cafes/restaurants are my favorites – I can’t stop writing and going crazy over them! Paddy hills has recently launched their new brunch menu which focuses on Italian influences and puts a twist to our otherwise comforting and familiar dishes. I think it’s becoming a trend where […]

Kura Sushi @ Tokyo – Conveyor B...

Explodingbelly recently went on a short getaway to TOKYO, Japan.. again!!! Okay, this time round, the queues were equally insane – for toilets, fitting rooms, Disneyland, and food, the only different thing was, the crazy hot weather and insane perpetual rains. I’ll rant more in the travelogue but for now, let’s get to the point. […]

Man man X Teppei Syokudo – brin...

All you people active on Instagram would have already seen this amazing concept by the Teppei team – combining their Michelin starred Man Man unagi with their classic all time favorite Kaisendon! It has been all over my feed lately and I salivate every time I see it. Tell me you didn’t lick your lips […]

Pepper Lunch Keeps Their Menu Sizzlin...

img_2699.jpg

The thought of Pepper Lunch just incites this bubble of happiness in me because it reminds me of my secondary school days (omg I got so old meh) and the fun concept of “cooking” my own food! Pepper Lunch has been pretty much the household name ever since it has set foot into Singapore from […]
