Restaurants

Kovan Market & Food Centre

There’s no lack of food options in Kovan, but most are only open at night – except this food centre. Just be sure to arrive before 1pm to get the best of the food options out here. Minced meat noodles$3.50 at Fa Ji Minced Meat Fishball Noodle (#01-05) The mee kia (thin yellow noodles) at Fa Ji look hand-cut and taste a little more floury than a usual bowl, but what we really like are the sinful fried pork lard bits. Rojak$3 at Kovan Rojak (#01-39) The punchy, peanut-ty sauce is hard to beat, but you’ll need to add cuttlefish ($2), jellyfish ($2) and century eggs ($1) to fill up. Mixed vegetable rice$3.60 at Hougang Hainanese Curry Rice/Economic Bee Hoon (#01-25) It doesn’t hurt that we only paid $3.60 for big scoops of a meat and two vegetables dishes – oh, and give the curry chicken a try. Wonton mee$3 at Yi Shi Jia Wanton Mee (#01-57) Although the sweet, tangy sauce is the stall’s selling point, the true highlight here is the cloudy broth with flavourful wantons.

East Imperial Gin Jubilee 2015

There's a special kind of bliss to be found at the bottom of a glass of G&T, especially in our humid climes. Which is why we're cheering at the return of the East Imperial Gin Jubilee. The annual competition to celebrate the drink and crown the best gin and tonic in Singapore is back from September 6 to 12. Twenty-five bars – including 28HKS, Anti:dote and The Spiffy Dapper – and their bartenders have each created their own take on the drink, while industry players like Proof & Company, Monkey 47, The Providore and Oxwell & Co are putting on educational experiences for the thirsty to get acquainted with the humble G&T. To vote for the top tipple, plan an epic bar hop to taste the drinks, then hashtag your favourites with #eastimperial, #ginjubilee2015 and the bar's name to make it count. Time Out Singapore is the official media partner for the East Imperial Gin Jubilee 2015.

Steve Winter

He’s been photographing cats way before they took over the internet – but Steve Winter confesses to being a ‘dog lover’ at home. It might be a case of leaving work at work. Winter has been on assignment for National Geographic for 25 years, braving extreme conditions to snap shots of jaguars, tigers and other big cats.This month, Winter’s in town for the National Geographic Live sessions. He’s giving a talk, entitled ‘My Nine Lives’, and sharing his tales from off the beaten path, like when he was being charged at by rhinos or getting trapped in quicksand. Y’know, the usual work woes. We put on our field hat and had a chat with the man.
