Gourmet kebabery, Fat Prince, is dedicated to serving Middle Eastern inspired kebabs with a unique and modern Fat Prince twist. These seasonal and ingredient-driven morsels are not onlyOn January 4, 2019 / By Nookmag
Gourmet kebabery, Fat Prince, is dedicated to serving Middle Eastern inspired kebabs with a unique and modern Fat Prince twist. These seasonal and ingredient-driven morsels are not only fresh and vibrant but also big on flavour. For this new menu, Head Chef Beau Churchill has channelled the best, most local produce from the region and combined them with wood-fired flavours of the Middle East. From bread to toum and garnishes, dishes are made from scratch in-house using the freshest produce that is available.
The menu is divided into three distinct categories; Mezze & Salads, Kebabs and Desserts. Kick off with the decidedly almighty Pumpkin Seed Acuka SGD12++ that packs quite the punch. Comprising of smoked peppers and dried Turkish chili pepper – isot biber – this bold dip is served alongside warm, soft, pillowy pita.

For those guests who prefer a lighter, yet wholesome dish, try the Avocado & Kale Tabbouleh (SGD15++), which showcases Fat Prince’s dedication to sourcing locally. Inspired by the traditional tabbouleh salad, this refreshing salad comprises of bulgur wheat, herbs and a zesty cured lemon vinaigrette. All the vegetables and herbs are from two independent farms, one based locally and the other in Cameron Highlands. Both farms produce the freshest food crop that is both nutritious and healthy.

Kilo Kitchen and Kilo Lounge are together again, bringing comfort food, soulful beats and great times to Tanjong Pagar! After nearly eight years at Kampong Bugis Road,On December 22, 2018 / By Nookmag
Kilo Kitchen and Kilo Lounge are together again,
bringing comfort food, soulful beats and great times to Tanjong Pagar!
After nearly eight years at Kampong Bugis Road, Kilo Kitchen has moved out of its original home for a new chapter at 97 Duxton Road. This move once again reunites Kilo Kitchen with sister property Kilo Lounge, just steps away at 21 Tanjong Pagar Road. With both venues a short stroll apart, Kilo can once again offer guests the ideal night out—great modern comfort food, fresh cocktails and a vibrant after hours experience—set against the backdrop of Chinatown’s bustling Tanjong Pagar district.
The name ‘Kilo’ is derived from the half-blue, half-yellow nautical flag for ‘K’, which signals the message “I wish to communicate with you”. As a concept, Kilo aims to communicate moments defined by hearty food, soulful music, warm conversations and unforgettable occasions. Kilo Kitchen welcomes guests from all walks of life for a communal dining and drinking experience among family and friends, both old and new. After dinner, guests can move on to Kilo Lounge to seek comfort in the ultimate living room, decked with an eclectic roster of local and international music acts.
“As a brand, Kilo has expanded over the years to include new concepts in Singapore and new locations in Indonesia, but the core of Kilo remains faithfully the same – it is always about food and community, drinks and music,” shares co-founder Joshua Adjodha. “We enjoyed great synergy between Kilo Kitchen and Kilo Lounge when we were located in the same building, and are excited at the prospects of what we can offer with a whole neighbourhood as our backyard.”
Dining at Kilo Kitchen will continue to give guests the sense that they are being welcomed home, time and again. This is achieved through the same thoughtful approach that the team has stayed true to in designing every new Kilo concept – from putting the story they wish to tell on the plate, to designing how each guest experiences it, every step of the way.
Kilo Kitchen’s menu takes inspiration from different cuisines around the world and draws on the heritage of co-founders Joshua Adjodha, Javier Perez and Sharon Lee, as well as returning executive chef Manel Valero. Since departing Kilo in May 2016, Manel went on a culinary sabbatical across Europe and staged at some of the region’s top Michelin-starred restaurants including Relæ, Maaemo and Geranium. He returns to helm the new Kilo Kitchen, where he brings with him a renewed perspective on Kilo’s brand of modern comfort food. Big, bold flavours can be found on nearly every plate, with dishes favouring the tastes and cooking techniques of Latin America and Asia.
A highlight of the new Kilo Kitchen is its open-format natural flame kitchen with a wood-fired grill – a style of cooking that chef Manel has honed throughout his culinary career. The kitchen is the centre of the action, and allows guests to observe the kitchen team at work. The majority of cooked dishes are prepared on the wood-fired grill, and this technique also adds depth of flavour and a touch of char to Kilo’s classics. Three types of wood are used to achieve the optimal fire – apple, cherry and jarrah. Apple and cherry woods impart a delicious aroma and burn slowly, while bush jarrah is an old Western Australian favourite hard wood for barbecues and wood-fired ovens that burns clean to
leave very little ash behind.
Kilo Kitchen’s eclectic menu ranges from snacks and small plates to large plates and sweets – each dish suited to tasting and sharing. Kilo’s signature snacks include creamy Crab Croquettes (two for SGD 8) with basil vinaigrette; Grilled Baby Corn (SGD 12) with chipotle and furikake – an Asian twist on the classic Mexican street corn elotes; moreish Crispy Chicken Skin (SGD 12) with addictive salted egg yolk mousse; and ponzu-seasoned Grilled Avocado (SGD 10) with crispy buckwheat puffs and yuba, a Japanese soy milk skin.
Small plates shine through bright raw and cured seafood dishes such as the complex and creamy Wasabi Tuna Tartare (SGD 22) with baby greens and a nori dusted crisp and Kilo’s Seafood Ceviche (SGD 23) of tuna, octopus and snapper in a refreshing dressing. Warm small plates include fork-tender Beef Tongue Tacos (two for SGD 18) with apple miso slaw, jalapeño pesto and garlic tallow; jet black Squid Ink Rice (SGD 29) with crispy baby squid, ikura and torched aioli and a miso-kissed Ricotta Gnocchi (SGD 26) with roasted mushrooms.
Large plates all come from the wood-fired grill and range from Grilled Fish of the Day (MP) and BBQ Pork Ribs (SGD 36) with charred scallions, to fall-off-the-bone Grilled Lamb Shank (SGD 35) with roasted peppers, fresh herbs and za’atar bread. Globetrotting, healthy sides include Burnt Carrots (SGD 12) with curried ghee; Grilled Beets (SGD 12) with herb vinaigrette and feta; and Charred Kale Salad (SGD 14) with grilled plums and ricotta.
With the opening menu, chef Manel focuses on elevating existing Kilo classics—many of which his own creations during his former stint as Kilo’s culinary director—while experimenting with new flame-licked flavours imparted from the wood-fired grill. Come January 2019, Manel will work closely with co-founder Joshua Adjodha to put forward a fuller menu that will see the Spaniard chef come into his own with new wood-fired creations, seasonal specials and weekend brunch offerings.
Adjacent to the open kitchen is an impressive Turkish marble and brass bar that extends across the width of the space. Here, a high energy bar team led by general manager Luca Colonna delivers a well-rounded beverage programme of signature cocktails, artisanal sakes, craft spirits, and over 30 wines sourced from South Africa to Argentina and beyond – perfect for any time of the evening.
Within Kilo’s signature cocktails are an intercontinental selection inspired by drinking cultures found halfway around the world and back. Drift away on a Moroccan holiday with Nuita Marrakech (SGD 19), an intoxicating concoction of vanilla infused vodka, homemade banana cinnamon liqueur, jasmine tea, lemon, egg white and oriental bitters. Flirt with the deceptively potent Makgeolli Passion (SGD 20) made with vodka, makgeolli syrup, citrus, passion fruit and egg white. Brace your taste buds for the Spicy Margarita (SGD 19), a tongue-tingling, salt-rimmed slushie of jalapeño infused tequila, citrus, sour mix and lime.
House infusions and barrel-aging come to play with newfangled inventions such as the New Fashion (SGD 20), an update to the timeless crowd-pleaser that’s stirred with vanilla infused bourbon, bitters, orange peel and a smoked cinnamon stick; A Night to Remember (SGD 18), a sweet treat shaken with caramel infused rum, homemade orange liqueur, orgeat syrup and egg white; and the Continental Sour (SGD 21), a bourbon and port classic that’s elevated with Bulleit bourbon aged for two weeks in a syrah barrel.
The 3,000 square feet eating and drinking destination sits on a prime spot on the intersection of Duxton Hill and Duxton Road – the latest addition to the burgeoning Duxton community of cultural, creative, lifestyle and dining offerings. Responsible for the design of the new Kilo Kitchen is Singapore and Jakarta-based Studio Dinding, whose designers have worked on projects for noted firms Jaya and Distillery.
While the interior stays true to the exposed, industrial aesthetic of Kilo’s original Kallang location, the space is anchored in a rejuvenated rawness that is tempered with utilitarian, domestic elements. Hand-sanded concrete walls, natural stone, brass finishings and recycled timber exude the confident Kilo charm; while polished marble, Italian ceramic tiles, vintage rugs and bold, bright fabrics inject warmth in tones of gray, gold, mustard and pink. Located in a sunny corner of Duxton Road, floor-toceiling windows open the space into the street, with ample alfresco seating for watching the world go by.
Kilo Kitchen is located 97 Duxton Road, Singapore 089541. Kilo is open for dinner Tuesdays to Fridays from 5.30pm – 12.00am, and Saturdays 6.00pm – 12.00am. Kilo Kitchen is closed Sundays and Mondays.

Beauty in The Pot has officially launched its brand-new outlet at VivoCity and it is the restaurant’s biggest outlet yet. Spanning over 10,600 square feet, the outlet boastsOn December 21, 2018 / By Nookmag
Beauty in The Pot has officially launched its brand-new outlet at VivoCity and it is the restaurant’s biggest outlet yet. Spanning over 10,600 square feet, the outlet boasts 400 seats as well as two 12-seater private dining rooms that can be combined to form a larger space perfect for family or large gatherings.
The interior of the VivoCity outlet is inspired by the bygone era of glamourous ocean liner and the latest trend of “小清新”, or “a breath of fresh air”. The restaurant overlooks the sea, so gourmands will feel as if they are really on a cruise. Art deco modern lines, juxtaposed with the vibrant teal and peach colours of the chairs, help achieve a contemporary look. Natural sunlight filters in through the windows, adding to the sense of glamour.
The outlet offers the new version of the Signature Beauty Collagen Broth, which boasts a richer and sweeter flavour compared with its predecessor: the Shark’s Cartilage Soup. A medley of conpoy, chicken, chicken feet, pork bone and pig’s trotters is boiled for many hours, and as such the broth has a thick consistency and is rich in collagen. The umami note of the conpoy also adds a different flavour dimension to the broth.
There are three new items to discover at the VivoCity outlet: black cow tripe, pig aorta and baby bamboo shoots. These three items have an addictive crunch that will have gourmands wanting more. There will also be cold side dishes available at the condiment counter, which offers two new sauces as well: mushroom and spicy minced beef.
A suite of premium hotpot ingredients
Specially selected to match seamlessly with the soup, Beauty in The Pot offers a variety of fresh ingredients ranging from meat and seafood to vegetables and noodles. All the meatballs, meat paste and dumplings are handmade. There are also more than 20 condiments and sauces to dip the ingredients in. Top up SGD4.00 to enjoy the condiments and a selection of fresh fruits.
Some of the must-try items at Beauty in The Pot include the Signature Homemade Fish Tofu (SGD2.20/piece), which follows a secret recipe. It is made with yellowtail fish, soya bean and egg white all blended perfectly. The smooth, soft and delicate tofu is skilfully prepared and has a melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Handmade daily, the Ebiko Prawn Paste (SGD18.80) is shaped out of 100% prawn meat, and texturally the ebiko lends a nice juicy crunch.
The Fried Beancurd Skin (SGD5.00/half; SGD10.00/full) is irresistibly crispy; enjoy it on its own or soak it in your preferred broth. It is not at all unctuous, and hence not cloying. At Beauty in The Pot, the chefs thoroughly check the beancurd skin; only the best-quality ones are served.
Equally enticing, the Soft Bone Pork Meatballs (SGD5.40/half portion; SGD10.80/full) are incredibly juicy and tender.
Beauty in the Pot has a thematic set-up in front of the restaurant that will last till 10 January 2019, for diners to experience the feeling of falling in love again.
There will also be a late night 20% off food items after 10.30pm daily, and all customers will receive an SGD30 return voucher with any amount spend.

This Yuletide season, gather your loved ones in the comfort of your own home to enjoy the goodness of a gourmet meal, without any of the fuss and drama it usually entails. Homegrown cultural-culinary concept SPRMRKT heralds the holiday cheer right to your dining table with a convivial curation of takeaway Christmas feasts and novel gift ideas that are sure to add that extra bit of joy and sparkle to the season.
Indulge the festivities in true Singaporean fashion with SPRMRKT’s new Claypot Rice Roast Turkey (SGD128+) – chef-owner Joseph Yeo’s East-meets-West interpretation of the quintessential Christmas bird that’s generously stuffed with fragrant claypot rice, lap cheong (Chinese waxed sausage), shiitake mushrooms and salted fish.
For those who remain loyal to the classics, go with the Traditional Roast Turkey (SGD128+) and make the difficult choice between two equally delectable types of stuffing – wild rice with Kurobuta pork sausage or spicy harissa chicken sausage with bread crumbs and raisins. All turkeys are served with house-made turkey jus and cranberry sauce on the side. Hankering for a prime slab of meat? The succulent Roast Beef (SGD150+) is rubbed with fresh rosemary and thyme and served with a robust black peppercorn sauce – a must-have for every Christmas table.
Round off the meal on a sugar high with the decadent Eggnog Bread Pudding (SGD38+), a festive take on SPRMRKT’s beloved bread pudding that’s soaked with eggnog, baked with a buttery pastry top, and finished with a rich eggnog anglaise for an sweet, boozy kick. If all that sounds a tad indulgent, opt for a lighter crowd-pleaser that’s just as boozy with the limited-edition Christmas Chiffon Cake (SGD86+), a moist, bourbon-infused chocolate chiffon coated with coconut shavings and expertly decorated with white chocolate matcha Christmas tree toppers by pastry chef Furrene Hoh.
Planning a dinner party? Choose from two festive packages that are specially created to spoil for choice with options aplenty.

Both the Akamaru and Shiromaru ramen are IPPUDO’s signature offerings that have won the hearts of gourmands around the world, all thanks to the al dente noodles immersed in a moreish tonkotsu broth.

Amid joyous reunions and traditional mooncake flavors during the Mid-Autumn Season, one of the best reasons to celebrate is undoubtedly the new influx of choices and flavors availableOn September 22, 2018 / By Nookmag
Amid joyous reunions and traditional mooncake flavors during the Mid-Autumn Season, one of the best reasons to celebrate is undoubtedly the new influx of choices and flavors available in today’s mooncake offerings. As each brand tries to one-up their culinary counterparts in friendly competition, us consumers are definitely the ultimate winners in this friendly, palatable little tug-of-war.
With the Mid-Autumn festival literally around the corner, here are 5 characteristic flavors that caught my tastebuds the most, among others this year.
Charcoal Tangerine Red Bean by Bakerzin
Part of Bakerzin’s Royal Collection, the Charcoal Tangerine Red Bean mooncake is a re-imagination of a classic oriental dessert: Red Bean Soup. A homely and heart-warming dessert, the flavours of the red bean soup are reshaped into a mooncake with red bean paste and tangerine bits for some zest. Limited to an availability of only 1,000 boxes nation-wide at SGD66 per box of 4 pieces, the other choices in this signature egg yolk blend mooncake collection includes other local flavors such as Osmanthus, Pandan, and Beetroot Gula Melaka.
Orh Nee by Antoinette
Blueberry Lava by The Baker Haus
With the invasion of the lava craze into modern day foods, mooncakes are not spared as we can very well see from The Baker Haus’s offerings this year. With a lovely gooey center oozing out as the cake is cut, the only shame is having to leave some of that blueberry goodness on the plate… unless we lick it clean! – Parents, hold on to your kids! Other flavors available in this selection include strawberry, mango, and durian lava, while patrons can also choose non-lava varieties such as the Blueberry Purple Sweet Potato and Pure Custard snowskin mooncakes. Needless to say, The Baker Haus also offers the traditional baked selections, with a radical twist of flavors such as the Sambal White Lotus, and Charcoal Baked Skin mooncakes. Available in boxes of 2 or 4 pieces, the price ranges from SGD66 – 72 for 4 pieces, and SGD39.60 – 43.20 for 2 pieces.
Lychee Tea by Kwong Cheong Thye
Known for their vegetarian mooncake selection, Kwong Cheong Thye brings us choices with infusions of fruit flavors that range between not-so-sweet, to an ultimate treat for sweet tooths. Aside from flavors such as Honeydew, Yuzu, Mango, and the usual Durian, the Lychee Tea mooncake carries itself well with a mildly sweet center, infused with a light lychee flavor, leaving a clean aftertaste that allows us to eat more than one mooncake at a time. Available in boxes of SGD40 for 8 small pieces or SGD48 for 4 large pieces, each flavor can also be purchased individually at SGD5 per small piece, or SGD12 per large mooncake.
Earl Grey by Minamoto Kitchoan
Filled with Earl Grey tea flavored sweet bean paste, this Japanese mooncake is made with a smooth blend of egg yolk and white bean paste that brings a slight twist to the usual offerings of the season. Available in boxes of SGD25 for 4 pieces, SGD45 for 8 pieces, and SGD65 for 12 pieces, the other flavors in each box include the most famous Japanese Matcha Green Tea, Fruits & Nuts, as well as a nutty Caramel flavor so suit a variety of palates.

Health-conscious cake lovers are in for a treat! Following the success of its National Day Special Ondeh Ondeh Cake in August, the ever popular Ah Mah Homemade Cake is launching another limited-edition Multi Grain Sesame flavour for the entire month of September across all outlets!
They may be tiny but black sesame seeds have huge health benefits.

Coated generously on the top with a layer of grains, the Multi Grain Sesame Cake makes a satisfying nutty snack. Packed full of a variety of nutritious grains including walnuts, barley, black and white sesame seeds, almond flakes, and pumpkin seeds, there is no reason why one should skip dessert with this sin-free option. Furthermore, all Ah Mah Homemade Cakes are made with the freshest ingredients with no preservatives or artificial flavouring. Definitely a hit with both the young and old!
The special Multi Grain Sesame Cake would also come with its own specialty box specially designed by local artist Lee Kow Fong, featuring a drawing of old Singapore streets, bringing back nostalgic memories whilst eating the traditional castella cake. Ah Mah Homemade Cake is favoured by all walks of life from young to old as shown in the art piece with kids enjoying and savouring the cake.
The author, Lee Kow Feng aka Ah Guo, is a local picture book author and a columnist. Lee Kow Fong’s drawings has been featured in popular children’s books, like the BuBu series, Secret Garden of Happiness and Fei Fei’s Starry Sky. Lee has been a commissioned artist for several local Chinese and English language picture books, having a received an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art in 2011.
Ah Mah Homemade Cake’s Multi Grain Sesame Cake (SGD11) will be available at all outlets for a limited time only, from now to 29 October

When it comes to food nowadays, #doingitforthegram is all the rage now. We geddit – pictures of outrageously-presented and fantastical cuisine send us all to foodgasm as well.
Yes, beautiful and outlandish food is indeed attractive, but all true foodies know this – the most exquisite taste usually comes from the simplest of dishes. For this, KFC looked to Japan and its cuisine, undoubtedly the pioneer in creating mind-blowing delicacies out of the most unassuming ingredients. Just look at a simple sushi – a seemingly plain dish with just a few ingredients, yet each and every ingredient complements each other so seamlessly to give us paradise in the mouth.
Drawing inspiration from that, KFC introduces the new Tori Katsu Burger! Hold on tight now, as KFC cranks up their game to bring you a burger crafted with just one goal – to bring you the ultimate taste experience. Paying homage to the Japanese’s reverence and respect for food, the Tori Katsu Burger’s ingredients are simple, yet allow you to bask in an amazing combination of flavours and textures.
Layering a deeply marinated and succulent chicken fillet coated with breadcrumbs (freshly breaded in stores for that extra oomph n’ crunch) with fresh Japanese white shredded cabbage, and drizzled with just the right amount of savoury special Katsu sauce and mayonnaise, the Tori Katsu Burger packs the entire dome of deliciousness between two soft sesame buns. To best enjoy this creation, you only have to adhere to these 3 simple rules:
Now, we all know that burgers always go best with fries, and it would be blasphemous not to have fries accompany a burger as fine as the Tori Katsu Burger. KFC took it to the next level, and present to you the Bonito Fries – golden fries fried to crispy perfection, drizzled with special Katsu sauce and mayonnaise, and sprinkled (liberally, if we may add) with the perennial favourite bonito flakes.
Get your burger game woke now. Starting today, the Tori Katsu Burger and Bonito Fries will be available at all KFC outlets, except KFC Changi Airport Terminal 1, KidZania and Singapore Zoo.
The new Tori Katsu Burger and Bonito Fries are priced respectively (a la carte) at SGD5.50 and SGD4.50 or in special bundle meals starting from SGD7.55.
