FOOD MASTERS 2017 WINNERS
Out of 104 eateries, 12 have been recognised as winners of Singapore Food Masters 2017. The eateries were first shortlisted via public vote, then a panel of judges picked three from each zone (north, central, east and west). Winners include Yan Ji Seafood Soup (above, Old Airport Road Food Centre), Hanwoori Korean Restaurant (Serangoon Garden Way), Deja Brew (Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre) and Shao (Jurong Gateway Road).

BOBII FRUTII DEBUTS
Bobii Frutii from Taiwan (The Clementi Mall) is the latest Instagram sensation with its dramatically named drinks of fanciful colours, such as Don't Want To Grow Up ($6.90, with baby pink strawberry and yellow mango juice layers) and Love In A Summer Rain ($5.90 with Yakult, honey, cheese and butterfly pea). Don't worry, non-dramatic drinks are available too.

McDonald's latest offering is the limited-edition BBQ Pulled Chicken burger (from $6.45 a la carte, and from $8.45 for an Extra Value Meal). The pulled chicken meat is smothered in a barbeque sauce and finished with a coat of shredded purple cabbage and carrot.
