In the age of user­generated content and personal fabrication, FabCafe is an open creative platform to encourage and empower everyone to take the initiative to make something. So we aim to provide a dynamic platform for everyone to find their own answers to the following question: "What do you fab?".

FabCafe is a place where people can have fun, tasty and creative experiences. Founded in Tokyo, FabCafe was the first in the world to introduce the concept of a maker’s space café that offers hands­on experiences on state­of­the­art tech devices such as laser cutters, laser engravers and 3D printers in a collaborative community setting, and of course, great gourmet coffee to keep the creative juices flowing. Under the umbrella of FabLab, FabCafe shares the vision of FabLab, "enabling invention by providing access to tools for digital fabrication," and especially focuses on creative exploration.

The first FabCafe opened in Shibuya, Tokyo in March 2012. Since then, the FabCafe network has expanded to Taipei, Barcelona, Bangkok, Toulouse, and Hida...with pop­ups around the world and more in planning!

And most recently, we’ve brought the Fab movement to Singapore, opening the latest FabCafe at the world­famous ArtScience Museum.



We are the first and largest healthy food chain in Asia. As a pioneer of the healthy eating movement, our core values are integrity, respect, and a commitment to excellence – reflected in every step of our process whether it is how we work with our farm partners, the new locally inspired dressing of the season, or the way our team is considered family.

More Info

Our family came together with a shared dream – a more conscious way of eating that is truly GOOD. Growing up, our mother taught us about honoring and respecting our connection to nature and family dinners were an opportunity for a home-cooked meal, using the simplest and most natural ingredients.

SaladStop! was founded in 2009 with the aim of bringing a new dimension to salads and approach to fast food. Today’s society is becoming increasingly disconnected with their food – we want to show that food consumption should be honest, trustworthy and real. As we’ve grown over the past few years, we constantly strive to improve and embrace an attitude to be “better than yesterday”.

We currently operate in Singapore, Manila, Jakarta and Tokyo and aim to become the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness company serving the best tasting, most nutritious food. As we expand our footprint in the region, we remain true to our core values and commitment to the ideology of “Eat Wide Awake” through all aspects.

As we set up the salad bar every morning, we are driven by the communities that we work with and the lives that we are able to impact. We are just at the beginning of an amazing journey and dream about a world where farmers are respected and customers can start trusting their food again. We are still a small company but with big dreams and hope that we can be one of the catalysts in this change.

One Singaporean startup is changing the future of the food delivery industry.

In an increasingly competitive food delivery space, one Singaporean startup is shaking things up.
The idea is simple: Use high-quality raw ingredients, creative cooking techniques, and deliver restaurant-quality food to customers. Most food delivery companies, such as Deliveroo and Foodpanda, serve as a medium of transport for restaurants and have no control over the food quality and service standards. But Grain controls nearly every piece of the process from cooking to ordering to delivering.
"By controlling every single touchpoint, we are able to fine tune all our processes around our customers,” says Grain co-founder Yi Sung Yong. “This helps us curate the perfect customer experience."
