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

Angelina at Marina Bay Sands: Another Too Expensive Place

Staff were struggling here. We didn’t order the tiny cakes that cost at least $17 before tax and opted for a large basket of piping hot French fries instead. Pretty good but you could get much more for $13.50 at … 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

Where We Used Our CDC Vouchers #11: First Time at a New Coffee Joint – Niche Savoureuse

We didn’t plan to go here and it was quite a random find. Glad we checked it out. They serve good coffee here which surprised us as it’s rare as most places have coffee that’s acidic & sourish. Reminded us … Continue reading

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

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

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

La Ristrettos

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
