    A rather good place for coffee, less painfully hip than most and able to actually deliver on the good coffee part. A little stuffy on the inside, but there are outdoor areas that will still keep you out of light rain, as we found out today. I think I’d pick this place over Loysel’s Toy and Papa Palheta, but that might just be because I like this name* a whole lot more than those two. Strangelets, a small store with painfully-hip accessories and homeware, is across the street having moved from the Tanjong Pagar area.

    * Supposedly coffee passes through an average of 40 hands on its way from the fields to your cup.

    What I said on Instagram: “One garlicky son of a bitch with coarse, chewy noodles made from bread dough”, “If you like garlic, salt, and fat… best I ever had of the sort”.

    There’s a sign on the outside that claims they came in #1 in a poll of ramen that a man would choose, and I’d agree with that assessment. This is a huge, Go Go Curry Major/Grand Slam Curry-sized meal, with a generous helping of everything, and a salty soup that could dehydrate a cactus and kill a vampire in a single stroke. Quite simply, someone dared to take ramen to 11, and this is it.

    Paul Barnes lecture, SMU/Design Society, a set on Flickr.

    We attended this on Friday, June 10th. He was on the first stop of a tour that will take him to several Australian cities later this week. Mostly a look at some of his favorite work, from doing logos and type for The Guardian, the National Trust, Kate Moss, Givenchy, and a good deal of insight into how much reiteration and historical knowledge are required for these projects.

  • Here’s a sushi-themed congratulatory cake some of us bought for the 2nd branch of Standing Sushi Bar (8 Queen Street, right by the Singapore Art Museum). Really beautiful work.

    This post was willed into existence by Howard, the owner, who wrote on Facebook:

    “This cake reminds me of something Brandon would link to on his blog.”
