Chao Ting Teochew Pao Fan – Jumbo’s Pao Fan concept comes to Simpang Bedok!

Pao Fan / 泡饭 has been the buzzword in the dining scene these days and Easties will be glad that they have yet another Pao Fan option to choose from. Chao Ting Teochew Pao Fan recently opened its second outlet at Simpang Bedok. Chao Ting is one of Jumbo Group’s latest concepts, having opened Chao Ting only in June 2019 as a simple stall in Far East Square.

The Chao Ting stall at Simpang Bedok is even simpler looking as it resides within a bigger outlet called Lao Lim Kaya Toast, which happens to be opened by the Lao Lim Mee Pok next door (original one being in Jalan Tua Kong). You can actually sit at either outlet and order from both.

Hay, Gelato–Great tasting gelatos and waffles in Bedok!

Hay, have you been to Hay, Gelato yet? A whole bunch of ice-cream cafes opened up in the last few months including Hay, Gelato which is located in Bedok. For too long, I’ve felt that there are not enough cafes in the Eastern Eastern part of Singapore, ie Bedok and further East. But finally things are changing, with the opening of Hay, Gelato, An Acai Affair, Haute & Cauld etc. Unfortunately though, still no large café where you can get proper brunch/café food.

Anyway back to Hay, Gelato. They are owned by the same people who run Brine and the shuttered Laneway Market. Hay Gelato boasts premium gelatos infused with smoky flavours. You can find interesting flavours here like Pandan Lemongrass, Uji Matcha, Preserved Orange Peel and Brown Sugar Rosemary.

Meidi-Ya opens at Millenia Walk – 5 things to look out for!

Fans of Meidi-Ya, the premium Japanese supermarket chain can now rejoice at it’s newest and largest 2-storey flagship store at Millenia Walk (24,000 sqft) that will be officially opening on 25 November 2020. The bakery, food hall and wine & liquor store is on Level 1, while the supermarket is on Level 2. The supermarket offers fresh Japanese fruits, vegetables, and meat, that is air flown directly from Japan thrice a week and shipped by sea once a week.

This is their most convenient outlet yet, being located in the heart of town, and just outside Promenade MRT Station. And just for this opening weekend (28th and 29th Nov), there will be free parking for everyone who visits Millenia Walk, no minimum spending required, just drive in!

Meidi-Ya also has another outlet at Great World City but that is much smaller. I know many were saddened when Meidi-Ya closed its decades old store at Liang Court. But the Liang Court outlet, even if more spacious, was a pain to get to, especially prior to the opening of the Fort Canning MRT Station a couple of years back.

Here are 5 interesting highlights you need to look out for:
