Pesto Vinaigrette:

Puree all ingredients in a blender until emulsified.


Romaine Salad:

6 cups romaine lettuce, torn
1/2 cup carrots, sliced thinly
1/2 cup jicama, sliced thinly
1/2 cup cucumber, sliced thinly
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Nanyang: A Kopi Tiam in High Street

Kopi tiam is a traditional coffeeshop that is popular in Singapore. Aside from breakfast, kopi tiam or kopitams is also a popular place for lunch and snacks because of it serves Singaporean comfort food favorites such as laksa and nasi lemak. Of course, a kopi tiam won't be complete without coffee and kaya toast pairing.

Nanyang opened in Bonifacio High Street to satisfy that craving for authentic Singaporean noms even without a plane ticket.
