Patisserie G at Millenia Walk: Stunning Cakes

I didn’t have any cake but they were stunning to look at. The flat white I had was great, my partner found his latte too ‘heaty’ (acidic?). He can’t take stronger coffee like I can. The Cuban sandwich was nothing … Continue reading

Salted Caramel Cinnamon Rolls at Dal Komm Cafe Centrepoint

I usually am not fond of salted caramel but these rolls were actually good and not overly sweet. A quiet and spacious place in town which is rare. Good comfy seats but the only downer is they won’t give you … Continue reading

Marmalade Pantry at ION

Breaking up my posting on the Perth Trip to post some Singapore food adventures. Been craving for these cupcakes but felt underwhelmed this time. I’m not sure why. Perhaps due to some troubling news regarding my cathaport. Don’t care for … Continue reading

Grateful for Relaxing Moments: Flat Whites & Lattes at Cosy Cafes

It’s when I feel the most relaxed outside. I like going back to the same places. Cafe Aux Bacchanale and Da Paolo Gastronomia. Familiar friendly faces, good quality and comfy chairs. I do have social anxiety as I imagine many … Continue reading

Best Spot at Jewel: We love the French Toast and the View

Haven’t been to Jewel in ages. When we are here, we keep returning to Fun Toast for the view. It’s also not too atas or expensive.

Gastronomia Da Paolo: Favourite Items on the Menu

We keep returning to the same places mainly due to the draw of coffee the way we like it, and great service. Plus we’re not charged for water.

It was crowded this time as we were there after 1.30pm and not around noon like the last time.

Just One Of My Favourite Places where the Coffee is not Bitter & the Service is Good

Every time I find a cafe I like it tends to close down. It’s mostly because I like places that are relatively empty, at least at off peak hours. The service at the Gastronomia Da Paolo VivoCity Branch is great. … Continue reading

Where I Used My CDC Vouchers #2: Creamier Toa Payoh

Although you’ll run out of vouchers fast if you use them all here, it felt worth the splurge. Some of the best waffles and ice cream I’ve had. Second time here, and as a creature of habit I stuck to … Continue reading

I Would Definitely Return to Angelina for the Hot Chocolate

Or perhaps iced chocolate the next time. The hot chocolate reminded me of what we had in Paris. The use real chocolate and it’s rich enough to fill you up without any other dessert. Two can share one pot too. … Continue reading

Millennia Walk: Not Crowded on the Weekend

It’s hard to find a place to sit and have a chat that’s not crowded on the weekends. The coffee joints tend to be filled up with students hogging seats. The Joe & Dough at Millennia Walk was surprisingly empty. … Continue reading

llao llao

Finally tried out the famous frozen yoghurt from Spain. I wasn’t impressed but it’s definitely zero fat. I prefer my yoghurt full fat and no sugar (and I like to have it with my South Indian rice meal) instead of … Continue reading

Haagen Dazs Cafe at Vivo

Because our usual haunt, Starbucks is always suffocatingly crowded we headed to the Haagen Dazs Cafe instead which is not very popular due to steep prices.  Their cookie dough ice cream is very good. I think much better than Ben … Continue reading

Ice Cream & Waffle at OTG Again

If you prefer your ice cream not too sweet, you might like the home made vanilla ice cream at OTG. I prefer mine richer and other flavours, but it was great with the warm waffle.

Haagen Dazs Cafe at ION

Now that Jones the Grocer has closed operations at ION (another victim of our saturated F&B market), we head to Haagen Dazs instead. Around the same location at level 4. I don’t like the coffee so opt for some other … Continue reading

Fresh Crumpets at Arbite

After having fresh crumpets in Melbourne I have been seeking them in Singapore and finally found them served with poached eggs at Arbite. Hope they do a sweet offering with fresh cream and jam soon.

Pistachio Gelato from Alfero

Been missing the beyond excellent pistachio Gelato we had in Rome (that sounded way too atas, I know) and was waiting for the brand Grom to come to Singapore. It hasn’t so I searched the web for what people in … Continue reading

Thai Coconut Ice Cream

I don’t like coconut ice cream. It always tastes overwhelming and cloying in it’s sweetness, so when my partner ordered this, I was grumbling and said I wouldn’t have any. But one taste and that ice cream was history. It … Continue reading

Teuscher: Capitol Piazza

I would come back here for the grilled cheese sandwiches at this Swiss Chocolate place Teuscher at the newly renovated Capitol Piazza. The hot chocolate was a bit too ‘heaty’ for our weather even though it was decent. The real … Continue reading

OTG Coffee

We literally stumbled upon this cafe at the Upper Serangoon area. My partner spotted it from the coffeeshop where we were having dinner. It’s another hip little ice cream waffles and coffee cafe located within HDB blocks and we like … Continue reading

Pacamara

Lovely new brunch place at the Upper Thomson area – Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters. Only problem is, it’s very difficult to find a place to park your car. I definitely want to come here again as I found the first … Continue reading
