Premium Japan Farmers Market opens at Changi Airport – Great place to buy souvenirs before you leave Singapore

Singapore’s first Premium Japanese Farmers’ Market has opened at Changi Airport. Located at the Departure Hall of Terminal 3 (Public Area near to Sky Train / MRT), the shop boasts a range of quality vegetables, fruits, meat products and sake all exclusively brought in from Japan. Think quality beef cuts such as Wagyu, Saga Gyu, Tochigi Wagyu, or grapes such as the Shine Muscat or Kyoho grapes.

There is also a ready-to-eat bento section presented by GO-ZEN, which allows customers to customise their own bento boxes from 25 different dishes. You can order 12,000 different combinations before you end up repeating the same thing again!

You might think it strange that a Japanese grocery store might want to locate itself at Changi Airport, which is not very accessible to those not living in the East. But did you know that there is a FairPrice Finest at Changi Airport and that it is usually quite crowded? So there are already Singaporeans going to Changi Airport to do their marketing. Secondly, this would be a convenient base for tourists who are looking for last minute souvenirs to bring back to their home country! Choice Japanese products would make great souvenirs don’t you think? Anyway, I live in the East and I say YAY to more options for us! Smile

The Bird Southern Table & Bar at MBS – Worth crowing about?

Media Invite

I’ve been waiting for over a year for The Bird Southern Table & Bar to open at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, and that day has finally arrived. The Bird, also known as Yardbird, is an award winning restaurant featuring US Southern cuisine and hospitality, founded by renowned restaurateur John Kunkel. Yardbird is known as The Bird in Singapore to minimise confusion with the same named Yardbird hailing from HK, which I hear is going to be opening in Singapore too sometime soon.

Why was I so keen for The Bird to open? Fried chicken! As you might guess from its name, it is most famous for its fried chicken and waffles with watermelon. But another reason is because I’m always on the look out for restaurants serving Southern food to see if they match up to what I remember of Southern food when I was studying in Atlanta years ago. Featured in their menu include other Southern favourites such as Shrimp ‘N’ Grits, Buttermilk Biscuits, and Butter Lettuce and Grilled Mango Salad.

The Bird Southern Table & Bar Interior

Even the modern-rustic design of The Bird is inspired by the Southern United States, with its use of reclaimed wood, recycled machinery parts and mason jars.

Here’s what we had the opportunity to try during our media tasting session a few weeks back.
