"My weekend lunches are usually made up of healthy acai bowls. I whip up a pack of unsweetened acai with coconut juice and kiwi or frozen bananas in the blender and top it with organic chia seeds, and fresh fruit such as blueberries, strawberries, pomegranate or grapes and a variety of nuts. I get the frozen acai packs from Project Acai at Ngee Ann City and Holland Village."

"This macaroni and cheese is a cut above the rest for its simplicity and comfort factor. The ingredients aren't fancy, with macaroni, honey-baked ham, onions, and mozzarella cheese. But the combination of flavours, plus the smoky tinge from the torching of the dish, makes each mouthful a satisfying one. The portion is very generous and affordable."

"This oyster with artichoke foam and Oscietra caviar is a delight to the palate and a delicate beauty. The slight nuttiness of the artichoke foam complements the fresh, briny flavours of the plump oyster. Tapioca pearls add an interesting dimension to the texture of the dish."
