Review: Dallas Singapore @ Suntec Cit...

I swear Suntec City is becoming a food lovers’ paradise, and probably the most mentioned mall in my reviews thus far. From the opening of Pasarbella, new cafe Artisan C, salted egg chips at Mporium, to pizzas and steaks, I’ve covered them all. While there are many more options like Eat at Seven (7 Japanese dining […]

I first heard of Teppei because of their elusive omakase dinners that required a waiting list of a couple of months. There was once I even tried to call to get a reservation for myself 2 years ago, but to no avail. Hence, when I heard that they first opened their take away outlet in the Food Hall […]

Japan: Luke’s Lobster @ Omotesa...

This was probably THE best “stumbled upon” find we’ve ever had in our lives. If you’ve read my travelogue – here, we were just walking around the omotesando/harajuku area when my mother spotted her favorite word – LOBSTER, followed by a ridiculously long queue. A short history of Luke’s Lobster, which would give you an […]

Review: BoCHINche @ Martin Road (NEW ...

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m getting a little sick of the usual Weekend Brunches consisting of eggs made 10 ways, and them hollandaise sauce. When I heard that BoCHINche has launched a new brunch menu, it immediately caught my attention. Why? Cause I was honestly curious what kind of magic could happen […]

T|H|A City Loft Hotel @ Ekkamai, Bang...

The lovely work of art

One of the highlights of any trip got to be the accommodation. Even though we rarely spend any time awake in the room while overseas, the thought of checking in to a hotel with pretty layout and fresh sheets never fail to excite me! On my recent trip to Bangkok, we’ve decided to book a […]

Salted Egg, Thai Milk Tea or Matcha L...

So what comes after salted egg croissants, salted egg french toasts, and the many other unique creations from this list? Just as I thought there would be no other salted egg  creations that would wow me, CODE Cafe of Dessert Enthusiasts (Bangkok) proved otherwise with their SALTED EGG LAVA THICK TOAST. We all know how […]

Is it time for a Salted Egg French To...

After posting a picture of the salted egg french toast I’ve had late last year on Instagram (@explodingbelly), I came to a horrific realization that quite a couple of people haven’t heard of this heavenly creation. Hence, I’ve decided to do up a post.. Just so you know. I believe the origins of the Salted […]

Review: Froth @ BIG Hotel

Photo 31-10-15, 1 01 45 PM

I’ve first heard of Froth for its TARO WAFFLES, and I’m sure most of you foodies too! That purple sauce over the very overused dessert item – waffles, was a hit with many instagrammers because they are just so different and instagram-worthy! I didn’t visit them then, because the thought of heading to a hotel […]

Japan: Ichiran Ramen 一蘭

Photo 27-12-15, 9 26 48 PM

The grey skies and cool weather these days may be “sweater weather” or “cuddle weather” to many others, but to Explodingbelly, it’s “ramen weather”. All I think about when it’s dark and cloudy outside is how good it would be to have a piping hot bowl of ramen. Maybe that’s why I’m fat. And speaking of ramen, my […]

Review: Fishball Story @ UTown, NUS

Photo 1-2-16, 7 34 00 PM (2)

Wow. NUS is really becoming the next big thing for FOOD in the West. After the opening of Butter My Buns at UTown, which has been bringing throngs of crowds, the famous Fishball Story from Golden Mile Hawker Centre has moved over to Food Clique (UTown)! Opened by the super young and capable Douglas, his fishballs […]
