Food news and culinary happenings? You can trust us.

Eat your way around the world at this food fest
From Destination with Love is a global festival celebrating local food and flavours from around the world.

Good news for those who love posh groceries…
For fresh, clean, and ethical food and groceries in Singapore, and now the CBD area, you can get your fix at the new Little Farms supermarket outlet at Tanjong Pagar Centre. Feel good on-the-go with their selection of dairy-free ice cream, gluten-free produce and fresh organic fruits and vegetables. The Tanjong Pagar branch is also be where you can get Bloody Mary potato chips from McClure (yes we’re eating them right now) and Thai basil soda from Pok Pok Som. We just hit the cafe for lunch and sandwiches are massive! Psst: if you love Aussie Allpress coffee you’ll be on a caffeine high!

Happy Birthday Sarnies!
Do you love the coffee and sandwiches at Sarnies as much as us? Then you might want to celebrate their seventh birthday with them! The anniversary party will see booze and bar bites going at $7 all night long. Push up your sleeves if you’re going to be playing some beer pong at the party and remember to stick around for the cake cutting ceremony (there’s going to be a giant brownie cake…) and more toasts.
Sarnies 7th Birthday, 7 July, 36 Telok Ayer Street, Singapore 068601
Everyone’s talking about Aussie groceries from The Cornerstore
Sorry if you’ve had to put up with your Aussie friends carrying on about this, but online grocery The Cornerstore launched in Singapore recently to much fanfare. Crinkle-cut Smith chips, fun-size Picnic bars and proper Aussie Milo delivered to your door? Get out of town. Guilty pleasures aside, there’s also affordable fresh Australian produce, coyo and lots of gluten-free and vegetarian goodies that are hard to come by here. Honeycombers Ed Selina got her first drop over the weekend. The pros? Yes you can get your comfort foods and faves from home for a reasonable price. The cons? The enormous styrofoam box your order arrives in is a bit of an environmental nightmare (there’s only so much upcycling one can do), and you might be disappointed to find some of the stuff you really wanted wasn’t available – and you get a store credit, not a refund. Not great if you decide you don’t want to order again.
