Panamericana is a new bar-grill at the scenic Sentosa Golf Club, and is named as such because the menu draws inspiration from the diverse ranges of cultures and cuisines along the Pan-American Highway. Executive Chef Mathew Woon has developed a unique menu with farm-to-fire grilled meats, fresh seafood and street food – all of which promise a flavourful experience for your tastebuds.
The 100-seater restaurant is located on a terrace which overlooks the lush grounds of the golf course, so you can enjoy a relaxing dining experience away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Menu highlights include the Suckling Pig, Colombian Chicken and Argentinean-style Lamb.

Nestled among the neighbourhood eateries at Clementi’s Sunset Way is Summer Hill, a quaint bistro that serves simple but hearty French fare. The bistro is helmed by former Cocotte chef Anthony Yeoh, who is no stranger to creating unpretentious French dishes.
The menu at Summer Hill is simple yet appealing – just honest-to-goodness comfort food, without the fancy trimmings (and scary price tags). Menu highlights include the Signature Roast Chicken and Roast Pork Collar with Creamy Mustard Sauce, as well as the indulgent Dark Chocolate Tart with fresh cream to end your meal on a sweet note. Takeaway kits are also available for home gatherings and parties.
Oh and have we mentioned Fried Chicken Night at Summer Hill? Every once in a while, Summer Hill changes up its menu for one night only, with their Fried Chicken being the star of the show. Stay tuned to their Facebook page for updates on the next Fried Chicken Night.

If fried chicken is not quite your jam (because #healthyliving), Oporto has some healthier options which are (almost) just as tasty. The Australian chain specialises in flame-grilled chicken with a range of signature sauces, so you can get your chicken fix without busting your calorie budget for the day. Prices are also pretty reasonable – you can score a whole chicken for just $21.90. Now how’s that for winner winner, chicken dinner?

Monnani Kwabaeggi – Korean Ugly Pretzel
Location: 16 Raffles Quay #B1-48 Hong Leong Building Singapore 048581 | Business Hours: 8:30am-6pm (Weekdays), 8:30am-2pm (Saturdays)
With Korean restaurants aplenty in Singapore, we’re no strangers to the wonders of dak-galbi or tteokbokki. The latest Korean snack to hit our shores is Monnani Kwabaeggi, which is also know as…wait for it…the Ugly Pretzel. Because Instaworthy food is so 2017, please.
Monnani’s first outlet in Singapore is located at the basement of Hong Leong Building, and the pretzels come in flavours such as yuzu, red bean, cheese, chicken sausage and original. The pretzels are made of sticky rice and seven types of grains, and each is priced between $1.40 to $1.90. If you work around the area, this will probably make for a good mid-afternoon snack.

As much as Dirty Bread may sound rather…unappetising (right?!), the curious pastry has become increasingly popular since it first came about in China early this year. Apparently bakeries in Shanghai and Beijing launched a chocolate croissant that promised “a messy eating experience”, and the concept caught on like wildfire. Of course, local bakeries like BreadTalk hopped on the bandwagon shortly after.
Boufé Boutique Café is the latest cafe to launch a series of “Dirty Bread”, which comes in flavours such as Chocolate, Salted Egg and Strawberry. At $5 apiece, these are not exactly reasonably priced (it’s just bread, after all), but…you know you want to order it for the ‘gram. Go on, we won’t judge.

Ben & Jerry’s Non-Dairy Ice Cream
Available at leading supermarkets and on RedMart for $14.90 per pint.
Ben & Jerry’s launched their Non-Dairy line of ice cream late last year, and we’re pleased to report that it tastes as good as the real deal. While flavours are still rather limited at the moment, the ones that are available locally are not too shabby – Peanut Butter & Cookies, Caramel Almond Brittle and Coconut Seven Layer Bar. Instead of traditional ingredients like eggs and dairy, the vegan-approved ice cream is made with an almond base, which results in a similar rich flavour to conventional ice cream. At $14.90 a pint, these are not that much more expensive than the regular flavours, so give them a go if you want to try something different.

Magnum Chocolate & Hazelnut Praliné Ice Cream
Available at leading supermarkets, petrol kiosks and on RedMart for $3.90 a stick or $10.90 for a Minipack of 6.
Ahh…Magnum, you’ve done it again. Just when we think we’ve found our favourite Magnum ice cream flavour (Double Peanut Butter, of course), they go and launch another flavour that makes us think twice about playing favourites.
The new Magnum Chocolate & Hazelnut Praliné is the perfect blend of chocolate and hazelnut ice cream, dipped in Belgian milk chocolate with caramelised hazelnuts for that signature Magnum crunch. It basically tastes like Ferrero Rocher, but better (because it’s ice cream yo). The new flavour is now available islandwide at $3.90 a pop (or $10.90 for a Minipack of 6).
