Comfort food is the best food. Buttrmilk is the new hotspot for fried chicken and waffles and the latest original concept from Deelish Brands.
The combination of waffles and hot crispy fried chicken is an iconic Southern tradition. With a growing halal consumer base that has an appetite for new flavours and experiences, it was the right moment for halal-focused Deelish Brands to bring a new concept to market.
“I’ve always wanted to bring the authentic taste of American food to Asia,” says Deelish Brands Group CEO Moe Ibrahim. “Buttrmilk waffles and fried chicken are a classic combination of tastes that transcend borders. During this pandemic, more people than ever are looking to travel through their taste buds and find comfort in their meals. Buttrmilk is our first original concept, which fits nicely into our portfolio alongside Fatburger, 800° Degrees Woodfired Kitchen and Blimpie.”
Buttrmilk marinates its fresh chicken line-up for 24-hours in a secret recipe to give it a distinctive flavour designed to evoke the spirit of the South. The buttrmilk waffles are light and fluffy with both sweet and savoury options. The waffles are designed to be eaten alone as a snack or paired with fried chicken for a heartier meal.
The Buttrmilk Original Combo ($13.00) is the signature item meal served with boneless chicken breast, waffle and choice of sauce. All combos come with a side of fries or tots and a drink.
For speciality combos, the Hot Clucker ($14.00) is a spicy and savoury favourite of boneless chicken breast, a savoury jalapeño and cheddar waffle, homeslaw and hot honey. For a twist, the Sweet Clucker ($14.00) offers the boneless chicken breast with buttrmilk waffle, fried egg and delicious strawberry jam - the sweet and savoury combination is addictive to say the least.
For larger groups, the Little Rooster ($30) and Big Rooster ($38) are bone-in chicken options for up to 4 pax, together with beef bacon strips, fried eggs, jalapeño and cheddar waffles and maple syrup.

Hanbang Skin Solutions, the latest Korean facial service centre entrenched in Korean traditional massage technique, has opened its first centre at NEX Serangoon.
Established by KC Group, the same people behind the successful cluster of beauty and hair businesses, namely Yakson Singapore, Apgujeong Hair Studio, Myeongdong Hair Studio and Aoyama Hair Studio, the new centre features facial treatments that incorporate its key proprietary GeunmakTM Therapy – a Korean traditional skincare method, which enables customers to achieve firmer facial muscles, as well as a smoother and brighter skin appearance.
Spanning about 1,000 sq ft with eight private treatment rooms bathed in light beige and woody hues, the centre offers customers a calming and relaxing environment. More importantly, customers can expect attentiveness and professional service from the skilled beauticians.
Instead of focusing on the surface layer of the skin, Hanbang’s GeunmakTM Therapy concentrates on the deeper layers by stimulating the fascia; which is a layer of connective tissue made up of collagen that sits beneath the skin to enclose and stabilise the facial muscles. Using the Korean traditional massage technique, this facial therapy helps to relieve tensions between the muscles; boosts blood circulation, and activates the lymph nodes on the face concurrently.
One of the signature treatments at Hanbang Skin Solutions is the Hanbang Anti-Glycation Care. Glycation occurs when one consumes too much sugar, which can weaken the skin and internal organs, as well as retards the skin’s protein, elastin and collagen production. As a result, the skin starts to wrinkle, sag and become dull. In order to prevent premature aging of the skin, Hanbang Anti-Glycation Care treatment infuses essential nutrients into the skin to support the skin’s structure. The proprietary facial massage technique used in the treatment would promote skin elasticity and contour the face through detox and lymphatic drainage, which in turn, firm up the muscles.
Every facial treatment at Hanbang Skin Solutions is specially curated to target different common skin concerns among Singaporean women and men. Before extending any treatment, customers will undergo a skin analysis, which allows the beauty therapist to recommend the most suitable treatment and products for their skin condition in order to achieve optimal facial result. Besides Hanbang Anti-Glycation Care, other available treatments include Anti-Blemish Care, Deep Pore Cleansing Care and Hydro Boost Care, just to name a few.

The Showcase is a multi-label retail concept who are going to be opening their second outlet soon, at NEX.
Online labels were prevalent and the online shopping community was growing rapidly. However, they recognized a gap between expectations of buyers and sellers, and The Showcase set out to bridge this gap.
To online shoppers, it can sometimes take a leap of faith to buy fashion apparels online, where quality, fitting, design, and colour, cannot be easily ascertained through images. Unsuitable purchases often result to wastage. Transport logistics and timeliness issues pose further challenges.
On the labels front, it is a challenge for premier brands to highlight and communicate their differentiating factors to shoppers, as well as to gain trust from new customers.
The Showcase empowers shoppers to make more informed decisions and minimize purchase regrets. With stringent curation on the brands they carry in store, and new designs reaching their boutiques on a weekly basis, you can find latest and most relevant fashion styles and trends with them.
Experiments with quirk cuts and expanding on extremely simple ideas define the max.tan language. Maximizing on minimalistic ideas, this complex language results in details that are sometimes blown out of proportions. Much of the label’s attention is paid to tailoring and draping while creating unexpected silhouettes and austere moods. The garments play with volume, modified shapes and use, masculine, feminine, oversized, undersized, deconstruction, reconstruction and transformation.
The label advocates an alternative and quiet fashion lifestyle.
