Gram café and pancake, Singapore…the wait can be compared to purgatory

Who doesn’t love a pancake?

Gram’s Japanese soufflé pancakes are a fast-growing food trend on Instagram. In addition to their attractive, springy texture and sweet toppings, there seems to be a third factor in their social media success: a long line. If purgatory for foodies exists, then this is what it feels like. The food-obsessed want to taste what’s at the end of it, and posting a photo of the experience is proof that they did. It’s easy to see why: the buttermilk beauties served here are light and lovely, yet satisfyingly eggy. In short: flipping perfect.

And be warned: whether you have waited hours, weeks or months to try these pancakes, they  are unlikely to stay on your plate for more than a minute. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

After You Dessert Café, Bangkok…arrive hungry…

Should we really leave room for desserts? Bangkok dessert scene is anything but boring. Moreover, I crave my sweets. More and more I revere my sweets.

It’s hard to avoid the After You revolution, with Instagram going wild. If you’re feeling extra naughty, order one of their indulgent baby shibuya honey toast to go with it. While I wouldn’t advise regular consumption, an occasional choc banana pancake can’t do too much harm, right?! The baby mango sticky rice kakigori is selling like hot cakes but I don’t share the same sentiments.

Other than mango sticky rice places, After You is easily one of the best dessert places in Bangkok. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Restoran Gold Chilli, Petaling Jaya…prepare to have the biggest poultry-induced orgasm of your life

Despite the health food craze sweeping through Kuala Lumpur, buttermilk chicken still has a solid fan base in the capital.

Buttermilk chicken at Restoran Gold Chilli is delicious and totally naughty. Just to tempt you, think nuggets of chicken blitzed in golden crumbs and topped with homemade, drippingly good buttermilk to finish. Prepare to have the biggest poultry-induced orgasm of your life.

Be warned, this place ain’t fancy or Instagram friendly at all. Don’t order the big portion unless you are sharing with someone!

Compose yourself. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
