What is it about lists? Everybody hates them, but wants to be on them anyway. List it, and they will come...

Three Singaporean restaurants made the "World's 100 Best Restaurants" compiled by Restaurant Magazine. Iggy's, Les Amis, and My Humble House.

My Humble House
has an unforgettable menu, and I foresee many such Chinese menus to come our way. Under cryptic menu headings such as "Memories of that spring", "The wind wafts above the shoulder", "The delicate snow fell at midnight", "Infinite pleasures at My Humble House - weekend getaway", Chinese dishes are named the way they are supposed to be in the first place.
