Brewed with Love
Light and refreshing, kombucha is a fermented, tea-based beverage loaded with gut-friendly probiotics and enzymes that promote better digestion. Here are two home brewers we love!
Komboochy: After founder Alexis Soh had a ski accident in Switzerland, she started to focus on her health – and that’s when she fell in love with kombucha. The boutique brewery blends fruits and flowers in its drinks; popular flavours include passionfruit mint (earl grey tea-based) and lychee rose (green tea-based). instagram.com/komboochy.co
Re:Kombucha: Kombucha lover and brewer Denise Tan started her home-based business in May, and has since attracted a strong following for her delicious and creative drinks. Mainstays on the menu include Asian-forward flavours like longan, as well as an exotic coconut, pandan and gula melaka blend. instagram.com/re.kombucha
For a quick and easy weeknight meal, we recommend cooking with the Patagonian toothfish from Sasha’s Fine Foods. Sustainably caught from Antarctica using surface long-line methods that don’t damage the sea bed, this MSC-certified fish is sweet and rich with healthy unsaturated fats. With its flaky, snow-white flesh, this toothfish is perfect for grilling and baking, producing tender, melt-in-the-mouth flavours.
After hiding in the family cellars for two decades, the limited Ox Hardy range of McLaren Vale wines was finally released for the first time last year. The vineyard is helmed by fifth-generation winemaker Andrew “Ox” Hardy, who’s also the great-grandson of the “father” of the South Australian wine industry, Thomas Hardy.
The small-batch wines are now available at Indigo Wine Co, an online store and distributor that curates exclusive and unique bottles from family owned wineries of critical acclaim.
If you’re craving some good old-fashioned fish and chips, try Smiths Fish and Chips at Balmoral Plaza (271 Bukit Timah Road, #01-02). Popular for its light and crisp secret batter, the restaurant has been serving up the British classic since 2006. The cod, haddock and potatoes are sourced direct from the UK. The extensive menu also offers the usual British fare, such as homemade pies, fish cakes, battered sausages, mushy peas and pickled eggs. Don’t leave without trying the sinful battered Mars Bars!
