8. Hans Im Glück German Burgergrill

Burger joints are dime a dozen in Singapore. However, finding a good burger is a challenge. If you think that piling on expensive ingredients onto a burger is the way to go, then you’re missing out.

Hans Im Glück, the newest burger joint in Orchard, proves that sometimes less is more.

[caption id="attachment_32237" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit: @hansimglueck_singapore[/caption]

They serve up an extensive menu of burgers made with a wide variety of fresh ingredients. You can choose from beef, chicken breast, vegetable or vegan burgers.

That’s not all, you can also choose your type of bread, from Sourdough, Multigrain and Naked.

A must-try is the Wilder Westen ($16), a beef burger with aged cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce, and crispy fried onions. And definitely remember to order the 1 Pfund Süsskartoffel Fritten ($6++). Literally a pound of sweet potato fries. It’s crispy, not soggy and highly addictive.

Give this burgergrill a try. You can thank us later.

Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory, Japan’s number one cheese cookie brand is here and they’ve opened their first outlet at Raffles City Shopping Centre!

At first glance, it looks like a shop that’s just selling cookies but you’d be glad to know that they sell soft serve ice cream too.

There are 2 flavours, Milk and Cheese. The Milk ice cream tastes pretty normal but the Cheese ice cream is a salty-sweet combination that’s surprisingly light and is the one that you should go for.

You can choose to have your soft serve in a waffle cheese cone, or opt for the Cow Cow Sundae ($8.50) which comes with a mixture of Milk and Cheese Ice cream, a Salt and Camembert cookie, and a slice of their signature Milk Cheesecake.

It sounds like a lot of dairy but it is not cloying and the different textures make this sundae an absolute delight to eat.

If you’re not feeling dessert, you can check out their selection of cheese cookies. Choose from Salt and Camembert, Honey and Gorgonzola, and Porcini and Gouda flavours.

The quality of the cookies are the same as the ones you buy in Japan. It’s no wonder that they are Japan’s number one cheese cookie confectionery.

Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights is back for its seventh edition, and this year’s scare-fest is themed after the seven dead-lier sins: cruelty, deception, malice, manipulation, narcissism, perversion and obsession.

Come face to face with your worst nightmares when you enter the 5 haunted houses, which include a mall filled with ghosts (‘Death Mall’), an eerie hut haunted by the Midnight Man (‘Hex’), and see what evils lurk within the minds of the malevolent (‘Inside The Mind’).

[caption id="attachment_30575" align="alignnone" width="2000"] Image Credit: Resorts World Sentosa[/caption]

Wander through 2 scare zones, one of which is a sanctuary for the 7 sins (‘Pilgrimage of Sin’), and another of which is a macabre twist on your favourite holidays (‘Happy Horror Days‘).

Another highlight at Halloween Horror Nights this year is also a HHN first – Zombie laser tag. For the first time in Halloween Horror Nights history, you get the chance to defend yourself against the horrors you will meet. So grab your weapon; you’ll need it to fend off the rabid flesh-eating zombies.
