EditorialEatbook is TSL’s sister site specialising in food news, guides and recipes. We cover everything from a feature story on a 50-year old Tutu Kueh Stall to cafes hiding in industrial areas. As an Eatbook writer, you must be passionate about food.
When you’re not curating listicles or doing undercover reviews at the newest restaurants, you will be shedding light on underrated eats in Singapore that even foodies don’t know about.Read our articles on eatbook.sg to familiarise yourself with our content.

Editorial Internship Positions
As a food intern, your mission will be to travel around Singapore to discover the best food on our island. An Eatbook writer is versatile, equally adept at understanding the nuances sous vide cooking provides and the appeal of an oily plate of Char Kway Teow riddled with pork lard. You have to be confident enough to talk to chefs and stall owners, to uncover the stories that don’t get told. You’ll then write about your experiences, sharing them honestly with our readers.
All meals and transport will be completely paid for by the company. So you literally get paid to eat!
This may sound like a really fun job but if you don’t like food or writing, the novelty will wear off quickly. Eating is not a skill. So we’re not going to be impressed when you declare your love for eating because even our office cat does that daily. You need to have a true passion for food and the desire to share your recommendations so people end up having good dining experiences. If you’re the one your friends always go to for recommendations, and can proudly rattle off a list of “where to get the best XYZ food” because you already compiled it in your head, then we want you.
- Ability to discern between bad/good food.
- Have a natural interest in food.
- Grammatically sound writing.
- Ability to cook is a huge plus.
- Full-time commitment of at least six months (Mon-Fri, 9am to 6pm)
Editorial Fulltime Positions
If your ability to spot grammatical errors is as on point as your eye for where the next must-eat foodie haven is in Singapore, then we want you on board as the Sub-editor for Eatbook.

If you know your food, live to eat, and can manage a team of fervent foodies, then you could be the next Editor at Eatbook.
Job duties include strategising content around Singapore's latest food trends, managing Eatbook's editorial output, keeping operations smooth, and avoiding the inevitable weight gain that comes with running a food magazine (don't worry, there's a gym near the office).
