Two Men Bagel House @ Royal Square, Novena – New York Style Hand Rolled Bagels with Wholesome Fillings from Spam to Lamb

Sometimes you just want to break away from the seemingly endless cycle of food fads and overhyped “Instagram food” and head straight back for the classics, i.e. what works. Other times a little innovation goes a long way in re-inventing a timeless staple.

I have heard good things about  Two Men Bagel House since their early days in Tanjong Pagar, but never got around to trying them while I was working in the vicinity. With the start of the new year, though, there was no better time to venture into new food territory than when I was in Novena, where their second store is located.

Fatburger Singapore @ KINEX (Formally OneKm Shopping Mall), Paya Lebar – The Last Great Burger Stand in America Lands in Singapore

This is a trip that’s long overdue. Fatburger, coined as “The Last Great Burger Stand” , made its home in Singapore at KINEX and Velocity @ Novena Square back in September, with the gargantuan Quad (XXXXL) Burger making waves among foodies. Hailing from Hollywood, this famed burger chain has enjoyed a massive cult following in America, with celebrities like Kanye West and Pharrell among its clientele and partners.

Guzman y Gomez @ Star Vista – The Go-To Place for All Things Mexican with Unlimited Salsa (Invite)

There’s something about Mexican cuisine that leaves you feeling incredibly full just at the thought of it – big flavours, vibrant colours, and even bigger portions that do not stinge on the goodies.

You may be surprised to know that Guzman y Gomez is not, unlike what its advertising collateral suggests, a Mexican food concept helmed by two genial looking gentlemen by the names of Guzman and Gomez. In fact, the brand originated in Australia, and currently has overseas outlets in Singapore and Japan. Still, Guzman y Gomez has grown to become the go-to place to satisfy our cravings for Mexican food, with its largest outlet located at Star Vista.

Dumpling Darlings @ Amoy Street – Lola Cafe’s Newest Asian Food Venture in the CBD

It seems that Asian street food is all the rage these days, with various hole-in-the-wall type joints popping up to serve their take on what is a beloved staple for many. When I first visited Lola’s Cafe a whole five years ago (back when I started this blog; time flies!), little did I expect this homegrown cafe to venture into the Asian food business.

A familiar name amongst carnival goers, Dumpling Darlings has made its permanent on the same side of Amoy Street as three years old Wanton. Being an avid eater of dumplings myself, I knew I had to swing by their premises as soon as I could.
