The Wet Burger from Istanbul has opened at Golden Mile Tower.
What makes their burgers unique is the fact that the meat is cooked with ketchup, making it extremely soft. The bun is not the generic burger bun, but a softer almost sandwich-like bread which adds to the softness of the meat patty.
Finally, its slathered with melted cheese and a bit more ketchup/seasoned sauce to make it simliar to a Sloppy Joe. Each burger comes with a side of fries and chilli sauce to dip with.
In recent years, Hong Kong is the city that has been on development and bringing the transparency into the Asian art market, yet Singapore will be the next destination that enables the museums or primary galleries to play a main role as an incubator.
Ota Fine Arts have numerous programmes with East Asian artists including Japanese and Korean, and organises various rich collaborations with new artists from South Eastern Asia to the Middle East region. Be it painting, video art, or crafts, they have been promoting talented artists who work across different media since they started in 1994.
The Japanese gallery, which started in the Ebisu area in Tokyo, has represented internationally acclaimed artist Yayoi Kusama, renowned for her recent collaboration with Louis Vuitton. It has also been representing other Japanese artists such as Hiraki Sawa and Tomoko Kashiki. Over the last few years, it has brought more regional character into its programmes, featuring Indonesian Ay Tjoe Christine, Korean Yee Sookyung, Iranian Monir Farmanfarmaian, as well as other artists from China, Mongolia, Bangladesh, and the Philippines.
A new type of gallery has opened in Singapore. Call it nomadic in concept, Artemiss Contemporary takes art to the people by holding exhibitions in unusual places, restaurants, shops, salons, hotels, flats, as well as its own gallery space. They propose a wide variety of original artworks, in limited editions, different styles and at affordable prices.
Popular in Europe, this is the first time the idea of a roving art gallery for European art is being launched in Singapore. Clementine de Forton, the brainchild of gallery owner explains she wants to display the artworks they love in living interiors, that way anybody can see and appreciate the pieces in a friendly environment. They share their passion for amazing European arts, photography, painting, mixed media, sculpture, with the widest group of people possible.
Her partner, Gaetane Prinselaar. thinks of these spaces as a totally different atmosphere to galleries. The buzz of a venue filled with people having a good time lends an extra dimension to artworks. That’s particularly true of their first exhibition, the urban muse, which focuses on the world’s great cities, and the dynamism, drive, humour and trauma of the urban environment. An unexpected encounter with an artwork is like a moment out of time, and that’s exactly the emotion the artists in our exhibition are trying to achieve.
The urban muse comprises several original artworks by four artists: Christian McManus, Christophe Jacrot, Caroline Benech and Joel Odesser. Through photography and mixed media each artist explores the city in surprising and original ways. Shanghai, Hong Kong, New York, Paris, London and many more are re-imagined and embellished, revealing their beauty and diversity.
Clementine de Forton regularly travels to Europe to meet exceptional new artists and select their finest work for exhibition in Asia, often for the first time. As well as the roving shows, Artemiss Contemporary has a collection of work by the artists it represents, which can be seen at its permanent gallery in Singapore by appointment.
As well as exhibiting and selling the artworks, Artemiss Contemporary’s services include leasing, art counseling for interior design projects, creating public artistic events and corporate gifts such as signed art books.

Brasserie WOLF swept the votes at the 2006 Singapore Gourmet Hunt competition to win the Most Popular Western Cuisine Restaurant award. The achievement came just five months after the charming French brasserie opened its doors.

From interiors to staff uniforms to the menu, owner Wolfgang Lapper has taken every effort to incorporate the finer details that make this a total brasserie, the only one of its kind in Singapore.
Brasserie WOLF's classical French cuisine is now going to be designed by new head chef Claudio Sandri who has worked at Nobu and Brasserie Joel in London. The newly refurbished restaurant offers a revised a la carte menu which features modernised French favourites including Slow Cooked Lamb Navarin, Beef Bourguignon & French Onion Soup. These creations are inspired by only the freshest produce from across the world, and the traditional cookery styles of France. All complemented by a wide range of fine wine and champagnes, from Brasserie WOLF's extensive wine cellar.
