Fukuoka ultimate ramen chain, Kanada-Ya, with snaking queues in both London and Japan is set to officially launch in Singapore in mid-December, with its first outlet at Paya Lebar Quarter Mall. The outpost in Singapore marks Kanada-Ya’s 13th outlet worldwide. Specialising in the classic Tonkotsu ramen, the award-winning, rich and flavourful pork bone broth is first boiled for 18-hours, making it rich and creamy before mixing in a secret sauce to add flavour and umami to the broth. It is handmade by Mr. Kanada, the founder himself, and imported directly from the original restaurant in Japan.
Kanada-Ya will be offering its mouth-watering ramen and popular side dishes at the Singapore outlet. Tuck into perfect al dante wheat noodles, specially made using a specific type of flour, enriched with an exact protein content and alkaline salts for a firm yet springy texture that is the ideal pairing with Kanada-Ya’s rich broth.
Tantalise your taste buds with the heady scent of the aromatic Truffle Ramen from black truffle oil and truffle jelly made with black truffle paste for a slurping good time, only available in limited quantities daily. No visit to Kanada-Ya is complete without sampling the famous Chashu Tonkotsu Ramen in all its original goodness with tender pork collar chashu, wood ear fungus mushroom, seaweed and spring onions. The delectable Kotteri Tonkotsu Ramen is elevated with thick and juicy slices of pork belly chashu that complements the deep and flavourful pork bone extract perfectly.
Pioneers of Singapore’s cafe culture, PS.Cafe opens its eighth outlet, PS.Cafe by the Sea at East Coast Park, making this their first foray out East, away from the hustle and bustle of the city-centre. Inspired by its waterfront location while staying true to the homegrown brand, the menu showcases and celebrates seafood with exclusive dishes, while introducing a special Junior section for the first time.
Starting from humble beginnings in 1999, PS.Cafe began as a cosy cafe hidden within Projectshop clothing store. The charming and understated spot quickly gained a following for its hearty takes on savoury cafe classics, famous truffle shoestring fries and indulgent cakes, puddings and tarts. Since then - over the course of 20 years, PS.Cafe has steadily expanded in Singapore and recently opened up in Shanghai and Seoul this year.
Spanning over 3,000 sq ft, this 120-seater offers a multitude of crowd-pleasers, impeccably suited for friend gatherings, date nights and weekend brunches with loved ones.
The all-day menu at PS.Cafe by the Sea at East Coast Park pays homage to the serene waterfront location with new seafood dishes such as Chargrilled Octopus ($21) - PS.Cafe's spin on a 'char siew' features octopus wok-fried in a homemade sauce served with chilli lime dip, and Lemongrass Mussel & Clam Spaghettini ($29.50) a Thai-inspired pasta topped with portobello mushrooms, black mussels, fresh Venus clams and various aromatics tossed in a sweet and sour sauce.
Additional new creations, exclusive to PS.Cafe by the Sea East Coast Park include:
Poached Ocean Trout Niçoise ($27) a modern twist on a classic French salad with string beans, green olives, capers, spinach and tuna aioli for a refreshing start to the meal.
Chorizo & Calamari Stew ($30) a hearty pot teeming with white beans, fire-roasted peppers, spicy chorizo and tender squid topped with black garlic aioli and a side of crusty bread.
Singapore Chilli Crab & Prawns ($32) a nod to East Coast tradition of chilli crab, PS.Cafe's rendition comprises fried soft shell crab and grilled tiger prawns with wok-crisped mantous, fresh chilli crab dip and jade fried rice.
Signature items that are familiar to fans such as PS. Truffle Shoestring Fries ($16), Tiger Beer-Battered Fish & Chips ($32) and Spicy King Prawn Aglio Olio ($29.50) are also available. An array of hand-stretched pizzas and a multitude of Asian delights will also be on the menu for a stellar communal dining experience.
Adding to the brand's extensive dessert menu, the novel addition of the Banana Surprise Sundae ($16) showcases PS.Cafe's take on the banana split crowned with toasted almonds, chocolate sauce and tangy strawberry compote - a treat to delight any sweet tooth. Also not to be missed are menu stalwarts, Sticky Date ($15) with lashings of decadent toffee sauce and Double Chocolate Blackout Cake ($16) a rich dark chocolate sponge drizzled with dark chocolate sauce.
For the first time, PS.Cafe launches its Junior Menu for children under 12 years old; featuring kid-friendly items such as its iconic Spaghetti Bolognese ($14), Mini Pancake Stack ($12) with maple syrup, bananas and vanilla ice cream, Grilled Ham & Cheese Toasties ($12) with fries, and Cheeseburger and Fries ($13). All items on the Junior Menu come with a complimentary bowl of soft-serve ice cream with chocolate or strawberry sauce.

Following an ambitious rebranding exercise, homegrown Italian restaurant and bar operators The Cicheti Group has transformed the 1,500 sqft of prime F&B space along South Beach Tower’s retail piazza that previously housed popular modern Australian restaurant Fynn's into Caffe Cicheti. This marks the third Cicheti concept to join the group’s cohort of beloved Italian outfits, which include rustic chic trattoria Cicheti (2013) in Kampong Glam and contemporary pasta bar Bar Cicheti (2018) off Keong Saik.
At this modern-day osteria, fresh, bright flavours found up and down the coasts of Italy are served up at their uncomplicated best. By delving further into these coastal traditions, where tastes are characterised by their lightness and simplicity using the freshest ingredients that embody life along the shores, chef co-owner Lim Yew Aun expands on his culinary affinity with Italy’s diverse foodscape beyond Venice and the broader Mediterranean that’s underpinned his heartfelt brand of cookery since the first Cicheti. Best enjoyed with sommelier-partner Ronald Kamiyama’s curation of quality, quaffable wines that are fun, juicy and approachable—and a special emphasis on non-alcoholic beverages for the discerning non-drinker. The setting, dreamed up by restaurateur Liling Ong and Amsterdam-based interior designer Simone KÃ¶nigshausen, reimagines Fynn’s foliage-filled aesthetic with a fresh coat of dark emerald paint, light tropical prints and charming, bistro-style patio seating, lending a new lease on life to an intimate space that now inspires dining both day and night.
“We had such a good run with Fynn’s and made so many amazing friends along the way. On the other hand, we’ve established such a delicious goodwill with the Cicheti brand, and finally found our way with wines when we opened Bar Cicheti last year. We created Caffe Cicheti not to take away from what Fynn’s has built, but to continue building its legacy as part of the Cicheti family,” explained Ong, who first set up Fynn’s together with her cousin Aun in 2016, three years after they opened the first Cicheti.
By 2023, national servicemen will be able to access all their National Service (NS)- and training-related activities in a one-stop centre.
The NS Hub just marked the start of construction in a groundbreaking ceremony officiated by Defence Minister Dr Ng Eng Hen recently.
With the NS Hub, national servicemen will no longer have to report to various camps across Singapore for different NS services.
The new NS Hub will house the Central Manpower Base (CMPB), Military Medicine Institute (MMI) and a new Fitness Conditioning Centre (FCC) to meet all the services that pre-enlistees and Operationally Ready National Servicemen (NSmen) need.
It will even include an e-Mart for NSmen to stock up on their combat boots and admin t-shirts!
Currently, pre-enlistees attend medical screening at CMPB at Depot Road, and head to MMI in Kent Ridge for other specialist medical services. NSmen take their Individual Physical Proficiency Tests (IPPTs) at various locations such as Maju Camp and Bedok Camp.
Once complete, the NS Hub will be directly accessible via an overhead bridge from Cashew MRT Station along Upper Bukit Timah Road.
Gone are the long queues to "book in", as national servicemen visiting the NS Hub will be able to register themselves at e-Kiosks equipped with facial recognition technology. They will also be able to perform digital transactions through the NS Hub visitor mobile app and receive personalised responses about their appointments. Such technology is expected to reduce the overall waiting time for medical screenings by 30 per cent!
IPPT will be made more convenient for servicemen. Without having to "book in" to camp, servicemen will be able to do automated In-Processing at the NS Hub’s FCC. They can then simply walk up to the gym for their IPPT Preparatory Training or head to the sheltered running track to take their IPPT. Facing the Rail Corridor, the FCC will be the Singapore Armed Forces’ first purpose-built, all-weather facility for IPPT and fitness training.
Not unlike SAFRA Clubhouses, the NS Hub may well become a go-to spot for national servicemen to relax with their family and friends. The hub will feature a wide range of amenities that are open to the public – these include a food court, a childcare center and an outdoor community area with a running track and football field. For those into live entertainment, the NS Hub will also house the Power 98 Love Songs and 88.3JIA radio stations where visitors can catch their favourite radio DJs live on air. There will also be studios for the public to catch performances.
Visitors to the new NS Hub will be glad to know that the building will make use of renewable energy – energy generated from its solar panels can power more than 110 4-room HDB units a year! The building will also adopt energy-saving solutions such as the use of natural ventilation and solar shades for cooling. The NS Hub will make use of rainwater harvesting to collect non-potable water for irrigation and other purposes.
