S3E5 Singapore Foodie - The Cheese Ark
Cheesy jokes aside, this episode brings us to The Cheese Ark, the coolest boutique cheesemonger in town. Based at 49 Stirling Road, Ai Ming runs a shop stocked with hard-to-find cheeses from smallholding farms where every wheel is loving handcrafted, air-flown to Singapore and aged in her affinage room to perfection.
Plus, we ponder if the hard-charging 24-/7 life is really the best when instead, you could get back to nature and chill, away from social media

S3E4 Singapore Foodie - Ministry of Burgers
In this month of Hari Raya, COVID19 means the pasar malams are shut. These festive night markets are bright and happy bazaars, and the Ramly Burger is legendary. A burger from across the border, it's iconic for its taste and easily available in Malaysia, but in Singapore, it's a treat at a pasar malam.
Until Now! We talk with Shiv of Ministry of Burgers, who offer the best Ramly-style burgers in Singapore.

S3E3 Singapore Foodie - Tiong Bahru Bakery
We all know "East Meets West", but what about "West Meets East"? We venture down to the hipster central of Singapore to meet the finest French Bakery on the island to talk about the secrets of making amazing bread and pastries in the challenging humidity of Singapore, and how being part of the community is a cornerstone of how Tiong Bahru Bakery connects with its customers
I enjoyed this series so much, I love how it introduces us to the subcultures of Singapore!
I don’t normally leave reviews, but after listening to a few episodes in the series I really think that this show would be better served with better pacing. Now don’t get me wrong, the audio quality is fantastic, the topics are interesting, and the guests are great, but listening to this feels like you’re rushing from segment to segment, and I can barely even keep up with what’s being said.
