Wait, it has ONLY been a year since Ninja Cut just opened?! Feels like they’ve been around for ages, with their Ninja concepts being so well established and etched in the minds of many. What impresses me about the Ninja Cut are many factors: 1) Their food are ridiculously photogenic and pretty. There was never […]

I’m surprised I’ve never heard about District Sushi before – $10 chirashi don leh, how to not hear about it and chiong down? My first thought was, it’s either I’ve been too busy at work to follow my social media happenings or they are still pretty low key amongst the masses. I later found out […]

Wow it has been awhile since I’ve blogged, I’ve been busy with, well… Life. Amidst of struggling with life, the famous Hawaiian-Japanese based Brunch place – Eggs & Things has sneaked up upon our shores, making their first outlet out of Hawaii and Japan! No news, no hype, small media tasting group hmm. I’m not […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

“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 […]
