BTC Bites: The Travelling Cow

BTC Bites: The Travelling Cow

It is not often that the Bukit Timah Campus is visited by food trucks. Therefore, on 20 January 2020, it was utterly delightful to see The Travelling Cow on campus, bringing along an array of mouth-watering dishes. Overall: 4/5 MUST TRY! Starting off with my personal favourite, the Truffle Scented Cold Capellini with Forest Mushrooms...

(Near-)BTC Bites: Orh Gao Taproom Review

Nestled within Serene Centre, a comfortable 5-minute walk from Botanic Gardens MRT is Orh Gao Taproom. Having opened near the start of the year, it has replaced the unit formerly occupied by Island Creamery (which has since moved to Holland Village and still sells amazing ice cream but that’s not the point), sharing the premises...

Beyond Impossible: Alternative Meats

Meat. A rare, four letter word which causes many to salivate.   A symbolic centerpiece of plenty, fine cuts of beef (think the not-so-recent hype over Wylarah) to the humble pig (such as Jamón Ibericó de Bellota) are opulent representatives of fine-dining. With wealthier populations and globalization complemented by favorable policies for cultivating livestock, the...

New Summit Review Part 2 - All or Numb-thing

New Summit Review Part 2 – All or Numb-thing

Mala, meaning “spicy and numbing”, has become a staple in every Singaporean food court. Originating from Sichuan, mala contains Sichuanese peppercorn (this is what gives the numbing feeling), chilli pepper (this gives the spicy feeling) and various other spices simmered in oil. With many stores popping up around NUS, one of the newest additions is...
New Summit Review Part 1 - Muslim Food

New Summit Review Part 1 – Muslim Food

Let us all first thank the heavens that Summit finally has a Halal food stall. As most of us within the BTC community may know, the Muslims among us have struggled with the lack of available Halal-certified food at the Summit, since the first successful bidder for the Muslim food stall withdrew unexpectedly. Much to...

Our (?) Top 3 Char Kway Teows

Our (?) Top 3 Char Kway Teows

When asked about our favourite Singaporean dishes, many rush to mind. Although many dishes could be in the running for our fav, we dare say that the humble, but ~amazing~  char kway teow (“CKT”) is the quintessential Singaporean classic. Here, we have reviewed three of what are arguably the best CKTs in Singapore!
The Coconut Club Review

The Coconut Club Review

It’s a club, alright. For a start, getting through the doors hinges on specific time slots for entry. Not everyone gets a seat at the coveted indoor tables. Less so if all parties aren’t present. To top it all off, they don’t even take reservations, which probably explains the line which often snakes down to...
