6 Ice Cream and Gelato Places in Singapore to Get Your Fix

It seems like many shops selling the lovely cold desserts of ice cream and gelato have been popping up all over Singapore lately, and I’ve likewise also been appearing at these spots. Well, only those in the central area, anyway (had my eye on a certain ice cream shop in Yishun but uh, I’m not going there just to eat ice cream). These are the … Continue reading 6 Ice Cream and Gelato Places in Singapore to Get Your Fix

s t e e p | Cosy Mod-Aesthetic Cafe

I was pretty excited about this new cafe in the Jalan Besar area (I know, another one?!), because of the first look shots of its stylish, monochromatic interior and vibrant, appetizing dishes circulating on Instagram in early April. And since I kind of hang out in this area quite a bit, I just had to find an opportunity to pop by for a visit (or … Continue reading s t e e p | Cosy Mod-Aesthetic Cafe

Burnt Ends | High-End Barbecued Food

A reservation at Burnt Ends is notoriously hard to get, so when a friend offered up hers to a group of friends to take, I jumped at the chance to visit this Michelin-starred restaurant. Nevermind that a meal there could cost me a few hundred dollars. It’s a ‘once in a while’ thing, I convinced myself. Many courses of the ‘Chef’s Selection’ experience and a … Continue reading Burnt Ends | High-End Barbecued Food

CAF Clickafood | Insta-Friendly Cafe in Serangoon

Wait a minute, do they mean click on your phone, find this place and get food, or click (your camera’s shutters) because the place (and the food) are so pretty? Well either way, I enjoyed both browsing the pictures of this place online and taking my own to add to the collection!

5 Places To Get Good Pastries in Singapore

What’s your favourite type of bread? Mine’s the ‘croissant’ (pronounced as ‘kwah-son’). Who can resist those delicious pillowy, flaky layers of buttery, crisp yet chewy bread… well, people with more willpower than me, that’s for sure. Besides (various types and flavours of) croissants, I do enjoy most of the other similar breads in the Viennoiserie (or sometimes more loosely termed as pastries) family as well … Continue reading 5 Places To Get Good Pastries in Singapore

My Top 5 Hawker Dishes of 2021

So, I know that it’s only April and that there are 8 more months for other dishes to become my favourites, but why not list what I have right now first, right? I recently went on a bit of a ‘let’s try some popular local stalls’ journey, so would like to share the spoils of that with everyone here! 1. 545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles, Tekka … Continue reading My Top 5 Hawker Dishes of 2021

Walking on Sunshine | Korean Garden Cafe in Singapore

When I first stepped into Walking on Sunshine, I felt like I was transported into another world. They sure put in effort to make sure that the whole place felt like a lovely nature setting, but with just one difference – air conditioning, as this cafe is situated in a mall, along Orchard Road no less! The concept of this place is kind of a … Continue reading Walking on Sunshine | Korean Garden Cafe in Singapore

Olivia | Fine Flavours of Spain

Since Olivia’s Burnt Cheesecake burst all over Instagram a couple of years ago, I was captivated by it and knew I had to visit this place someday. And I finally did, earlier this year for my birthday, thanks to some lovely friends. Upon entering the classy restaurant with warm, welcoming vibes, waiters swarmed us asking if we wanted still or sparkling, and kind of decided … Continue reading Olivia | Fine Flavours of Spain

Miraku | Delicious, Worth It Omakase

I have a bit of mixed feelings about omakase (meaning ‘I’ll leave it to you’ – the chef, in Japanese), because on one hand, I absolutely adore the fresh, delicate and usually super tasty little courses that come as a bit of a surprise, without the stress of deciding what to eat, but on the other, not having control over what I get to eat … Continue reading Miraku | Delicious, Worth It Omakase

Elixir Boutique Roasters | Classy and Chill Cafe in Bukit Timah

Tough times don’t last, tough people (and businesses, I guess) do. After about 11 weeks of a ‘circuit breaker’ period (semi-lockdown) in Singapore, we’re now allowed to go out a little more, in small groups, with certain measures in place. While I’m trying to take it slow and not rush out with the crowds, I admit that I was very happy to be able to … Continue reading Elixir Boutique Roasters | Classy and Chill Cafe in Bukit Timah

One could have more life experiences, more wisdom and personal development. And so you might decide to do something like climb into the world’s largest acidic volcanic crater.

Dalgona Coffee 달고나커피 | The Trending #StayAtHome Drink

So, I’m sure you expected this right? A pretty, trending drink, of course I had to try making it! Such a basic foodie, I know… Anyway, enough about me and more about the drink in question. Dalgona coffee, inspired by an old-school Korean toffee candy called ‘달고나’, started trending when people started staying at home more, since the corona virus happened. Well, and it was … Continue reading Dalgona Coffee 달고나커피 | The Trending #StayAtHome Drink
