What happens when you take a young chef out of the kitchen and ship them over to an offshore island? You get an appetite for adventure, cultural history, and (of course) food.

Chef Sam Chablani wanders deep into Pulau Ubin’s kampung houses, the town square and other hidden gems with local guide Wan, whose family hold roots on the island as local villagers. Together, they uncover the secret spots known to Ubinites and bond over a meal of freshly-caught catfish.
