You Can Ban Food Globally, But Singaporeans Will Find A Way To Feast!


It’s the year 2025 and all food has been banned and replaced with PHood, a synthetic and safe meal substitute. It was a global decision when the public started dying from a mystery food-borne virus seven years ago.

PHood is artificial and flavourless; a dreary replacement for taste buds accustomed to richer flavours. And in Singapore, a country obsessed with food, this simply won’t do!

The series begins when KP Chia, a former food host, chances upon a mysterious bag of rice.
