BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers @ Havelock II, Chinatown – Unapologetically Badass Takeaway Bakery with a Daily Changing Menu

BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers, or Backyard Bakers as they are affectionally known to regulars, may be one of Singapore’s best kept foodie secrets.

Operating out of a takeaway kiosk at Havelock II near Chinatown, BUNDT is The Backyard Bakers’ sole physical space, following the recent closure of its GRAZE outlet in West Coast.

The Buffet @ M Hotel – Seafood Steamboat Buffet Dinner with Unlimited Servings of Black Garlic-Infused Collagen “Live” Prawns (Media)

There’s nothing not to love about steamboats – simple, nutritious ingredients thrown together to cook in a flavourful broth of your choice, often in the company of family and friends.

Mention the word “steamboat” to any food-loving Singaporean, and the first brands that inevitably come to mind are the likes of Haidilao and Beauty In A Pot. But in my opinion, M Hotel’s Seafood Steamboat Buffet Dinner is well on its way to becoming another worthy contender for the title of steamboat of choice in the CBD.
