Josh’s Grill – Affordable and generous portioned Western food in the heart of Bugis Junction

I like going to Bugis Junction due to its convenient location and numerous shops, but unfortunately it’s never been a place I associate with good and affordable food. Glad to report that I’ve since discovered a new and affordable restaurant to recommend everyone, called Josh’s Grill. The price point is really attractive for a restaurant. For example, chicken dishes are $10.90 and pasta dishes start from $9.90 up to $14.90. They are even cheaper than Swensens next door, which a lot of families like to go to for their relatively affordable pricing.

But what makes Josh’s Grill even more value-for-money is that the mains all comes with your choice of two sides. This concept is not uncommon in Singapore. For example Buddy Hoagies, Astons and Kenny Rogers boast such a concept where you get to choose from a range of sides. What makes Josh’s Grill stand out is their variety of side dishes. Take for example the Mala veggies. I’ve never seen a Western restaurant offer this as a side dish, and now I’m wondering why the hell not?

Pink Fish at Jewel Changi Airport – It’s all about salmon!

[Media Invite]

If you are at Jewel Changi Airport and looking for a kid-friendly restaurant to dine at, do check out Pink Fish. Pink Fish is a casual fast food chain from Norway specialising in salmon dishes. They offer burgers, poke bowls, a soup and sides. Although you have to order at the counter like at McDonalds, the poke bowls especially don’t look like fast food.

Pink Fish at Jewel Changi Airport - Crispy Cod Nuggets

They have recently pushed out a couple of kids dishes at pretty wallet friendly prices. They have this cod nuggets with potato chips that goes for $7.90. Add $4 to get a juice and ice cream from Obsessive Chocolat Desire Ice Cream Cafe. The cod nuggets look deep fried but they are actually grilled. Kids all just somehow gravitate towards nuggets, mine included, and it makes me feel more assured that while I’m giving my kiddo a meal that he loves, it is healthier than the average fried food. In case you think these cod nuggets look enticing, yes they are actually pretty good, relatively crisp exterior and actual fish encased within as opposed to some minced patty with minimal fish. In fact if you are a small eater, you could order that and perhaps a couple of sides as your meal.

8 Durian– Fresh durian delivered to your doorstep de-husked

[Media Collaboration]

I have always been a bit apprehensive about purchasing durians. During my younger days, my father would be the one to procure the durians. It was a pity he did not take me along, but I guess he would simply purchase from his favourite durian shops or sources in Geylang. I have never purchased durians myself and would be totally clueless as to the correct price to pay so as not to be ripped off. Not to mention that good durian stalls are usually not conveniently located.

8 Durian (2)

Lately, I was asked to try out 8 Durian, and online purveyor of the King of Fruits. They have their own durian plantation in Pahang, where fresh shipments of durians will be delivered to Singapore twice a day. In a way, I was relieved not to have to face any rough and tough durian seller. Just click click click online to choose my durians. It may not be the cheapest around, but I like the fact that I don’t have to haggle.

Hub & Spoke Cafe outside Changi Airport Terminal 2

Super delighted to find that a cafe has opened in the far East! Cafes have been sprouting all over Singapore, but precious few in the far Eastern side of Singapore, ie Bedok, Simei, Tampines and Pasir Ris. Here’s a short list though.

Hub & Spoke Cafe (8)

Hub and Spoke Cafe has recently opened at Changi Airport. It’s address is officially at Terminal Two, but really it is situated in the outside space between Changi Airport Terminal Two and Jet Quay. It is directly opposite the open-air South Car Park. If you are coming via the MRT though, you will have to walk through the entire T2, past the entire T2 Carpark and get out into the open. Follow the red bike path, as they say.
