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

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.

Gardens By The BTC: 8 Places in Botanic Gardens

We’ve all endured that arduous 5-hour wait between a morning lecture and a night LARC session. Going home seems too much of a pain, studying a bore and BTC rather… meh. Life at this moment just seems more dull than a House of Lords judgment. We are, after all, in the middle of nowhere, aren’t...

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...

BTC: Bites To Consider — Reedz Cafe

On the face of it, Reedz, with its classy glass exterior and the calm of a hipster cafe, does not seem like a place one would frequent for bites. However, a quick assessment of the place registered a small, quaint, cozy interior. One can also elect between the air-conditioned indoors segment or the breezy outdoor area...
