The vibrancy and diverse local food scene of a place is often seen as a reflection of the diversity of that place, and Singapore is the best example of that.
Singapore’s food scene, which is a concoction of the best cuisines from around the world, is often seen as a celebration of the multiculturalism that Singapore has.
Singapore’s different ethnic groups have come together, without giving up their cultural heritage or beliefs hence creating a diverse and thrilling food scene.
From Michelin-starred delicacies and western cuisines to local comfort food by homegrown chefs, Asian cuisines and timeless hawker favourites. In summary, Singapore has it all.
Moreover, we can say that it is one of the places with more high quality delivery options, which proved its point during the Circuit Breaker period this 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Spaniards, we all know and love ¨La Viña¨ cheesecake, a caramelized crustless blackened top layer to reveal a gooey centre of cream cheese. In other words, heaven.
Some facts here before we jump right in. The basque burnt cheesecake originates from Basque Country and it was created back in 1990 by chef Santiago Rivera of La Viña Restaurant in San Sebastian, a bar where people from all over the world pack inside for a slice of the nearly burnt-looking cheesecakes.
Fortunately for you, you won’t have to take a plane to try this heavenly cheesecase, because it is right here, and sold by Paparch Singapore.
Social media sensation Paparch Singapore is a delivery-only halal company that specializes in 7 inches (7-8pax) burnt cheesecakes ($49/cake).
Its blackened top layer hides an enticingly gooey cream cheese centre that we could swear is even better than that of La Viña Restaurant.
We could not have chosen another cake to celebrate my 31st birthday, it was a complete success!
If you want to try their cheesecake, act fast! The brand has already gained a huge following during the recent Circuit Breaker phase and August delivery slots are already filled!
Tip: they deliver the cake between 10am and 6pm so if you need it during the morning, make sure to order it for the day before to the party (as we did).
The cake can be stored in the chiller (do not freeze!) up to 5 days.
And hey, they also have a Matcha variation that we will try for sure… just day-dreaming.

You haven’t truly experienced Japanese food culture if you’ve never stepped inside an Izakaya, a Japanese-style bar with a tie-loosened and hair down vibe.
Actually, Izakayas are to Japan what tapas bars are to Spain and Irish pubs are to Ireland.
Undoubtedly, Yujin is one of our favorite Izakaya in Singapore! It is not a coincidence that we liked Yujin that much (which means “friend” in Japanese). It is under the umbrella of Les Amis Group, which is always a guarantee for cool interiorism and high-quality food.
It is located at a corner shophouse unit along Zion Road, but they also offer delivery and take away. Which is great if you are planning an afterwork at home with friends (great idea, huh?)
Their menu is loaded with an array of cold and hot appetisers, smokey grilled vegetables, meat and seafood dishes, singed skewered items and bowls.

Bearded Bella no se queda atrás y nos teletransporta a Australia. Con terraza, barra y un cozy-vibe inigualable en el barrio.
Surgido de la unión creativa de dos compañeras de piso de Melbourne, con ganas de traer el slow-paced food a Singapore: Regina Tay y Sarah Ling.
Una de las cosas que más nos gustó es la calidad del café. Specialty coffee servido por baristas (Regina was the winner of the Singapore National Barista Championship in 2016) y opciones de brunch entre las que os será dificil elegir.
Besides specialty coffee and juices, they also offer well-deserved cocktails.
- Specialty coffee, obviously (do not put sugar in it, please!).
