One of the more unusual things you can do on Pulau Ubin is a cooking class in one of the island’s old houses. Run by self-styled “food sorceress”, the friendly and articulate Ruqxana Vasanwala ($130 for a half-day), they focus on a wide range of local dishes, some quite unusual. If your visit doesn’t coincide with one of her Ubin sessions (currently on the last Saturday of the month; book places at least a couple of weeks in advance), you can take advantage of regular classes at her home in Siglap, east of Katong. For schedules, a list of dishes covered in each session and to book, go to wcookerymagic.com.
