As a frequent culinary traveler, we all love to discover something new and interesting to feed our tummy and Instagram properly. Knowing that Singapore food scene has gone beyond our imagination, this month the author has spotted some beautiful creations that just emerged across social media. Featuring everything sweet & savory, Singapore is truly a right destination for culinary paradise. The nocturnal dining experience was made by a perfect blend of hawker food and high-end food that fit our palate. In this month, the latest trend of Singapore's F&B Industry would be dominated by savory dish, so those who are standing on the savoury side this is your right time to start the exploration.

1. Rainbow Fantasy Cake
Inspired by the artsy dessert in Swiss, this cake is certainly made to indulge yourself with the visually-appealing presentation and sweetest sensation on every bite of it. The different layer comprises different flavor and texture. For instance, that purple layer comes from blueberry infused flavor while that red layer comes from strawberry infused flavor. A layer of cream cheese feels more fresh and lighter and works really well with that airy layer of cake. Just launched weeks ago and now this cake has been circulated across any platform. Definitely, a solid version of the sweet tooth that never go wrong.

2. Singapore Style Ramen
The endless queue for this dish truly exists. People across the globe who are visiting Singapore supposed to be heard about the popularity of this noodle and yes, it has been proven by the award winning Michelin Guide 2016. Among another type of noodle, this dish tends to be more significant and complex. Showcasing a hearty combination between springy noodle, HK style dumpling, prawn fritters, half-boiled egg, and ultra tender pork belly is feels more satisfying as a daily meal. In short, this dish clearly represents the modern creations of hawker food that pay tribute to Japanese classics like ramen, executed as always with a touch of elegance. Be sure to taste this while it lasts.
