Singapore diners now have a new online destination to turn to for all things delicious.
www.straitstimesfood.com offers ideas on the best eats around town as well as features on the hottest new food trends.
The site features a search engine which makes navigating content easier and digital-only content, including videos and listicles compiled from The Straits Times' rich archive of food reviews, written by longtime food reviewers, Life editor Tan Hsueh Yun and food critic Wong Ah Yoke.
Feel like nasi briyani or fishball noodles? ST Food has it covered with our food critics' shortlists of the best places to go to.
ST Food has the dish on the latest food and beverage trends, with three Life section reporters dedicated to the food and drinks beats.
"Every Singaporean loves his food," said Mr Warren Fernandez, ST editor and Singapore Press Holdings' (SPH) editor-in-chief of the English/Malay/Tamil Media group. "And this is why we devote so much space and resources to covering food and drink
in our pages and websites."
Ms Tan said: "The paper pays for meals in the places we review, so readers have come to rely on us for unbiased recommendations for where to eat. With the new website, readers are going to get a lot of content not found in print - more videos, more stories. Our content is unrivalled and readers know this."
ST Food also has its own Facebook page (@StraitsTimesFood).
straitstimesfood.com replaces SPH's now-defunct food aggregator website SoShiok.com, which closed on Nov 1.
Fresh digital content to look forward to includes a how-to video series with simple home-cooking tips. Mr Fernandez added: "We hope for straitstimesfood.com to be the go-to place when people are hungry for information on where to eat, drink, be seen or hang out with friends."
Exciting and delicious giveaways and contests await, so watch out for more details in the coming week.
