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

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! Clickafood is like one of those ‘multi-concept’ places where you can find different … Continue reading CAF Clickafood | Insta-Friendly Cafe in Serangoon

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

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

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

[Closed] Fynn’s | Stunning Modern Australian Cafe in Singapore

I’m usually the sort of person who delights in richness and quantity when it comes to food. For example, I love having meals with lots of thick, tasty sauce or big chunks of succulent meats. Fynn’s was pretty much the opposite of this, and it surprised me to realise that I actually very much enjoyed its clean flavours, plating and delicate touch. The eight dishes … Continue reading [Closed] Fynn’s | Stunning Modern Australian Cafe in Singapore

The Malayan Council | Bustling Halal Mod-Sin Cafe

Who says cafes only have to serve eggs and coffee? The Malayan Council is destroying all notions of a ‘typical’ cafe, with their tasty Western-local fusion creations and mind blowing cakes and desserts. The cafe/restaurant though relatively small, is doing really well (completely packed on a Thursday night), so reservations are recommended. The person at the reservation phone (who I think is the owner) didn’t … Continue reading The Malayan Council | Bustling Halal Mod-Sin Cafe

Clinton St. Baking Company | Breakfast the American Way

Been a little busy with a new project recently so haven’t had much time to write, but wanted to share quickly about a cafe which I had been to twice this year – Clinton Street Baking Company at Purvis Street. Was most recently there about a month ago, when I finally got a taste of their popular Fried Chicken and Waffle (S$21++). Let’s just say I … Continue reading Clinton St. Baking Company | Breakfast the American Way

La Ristrettos | A Surprise Find In A Place of Healing

Upon entering La Ristrettos, one is suddenly transported from the white, clinical corridors of the Novena Medical Centre into a warm, cosy café full of brown furnishings, quaint wall decorations and tasteful flower arrangement pieces. The large window panes on one side of the café with a mix of white lace and gingham curtain adornments, the backdrop for a high table seating area, struck me as rather … Continue reading La Ristrettos | A Surprise Find In A Place of Healing

Suprette | Is it the Best Burger In Town?

I’m not sure if Suprette does the best burger in town, but it sure serves up a pretty damn awesome one. Their Suprette Burger (S$25 for the basic one not including add-ons) features a juicy, moist minced beef patty that was full of flavour and rested gently between a fluffy buttered and toasted-to-a-lovely-crisp bun. I really liked how the elements of their burgers come together … Continue reading Suprette | Is it the Best Burger In Town?

A Skip and A Hop Through Adelaide’s Cafes

Last month, I had around 3 days to spend wandering around Adelaide and so decided to visit some of the cafes on offer in this quiet, chill city. Most of the cafes only open till around 4.00pm on weekdays though so it is a good idea to go early. Quite a few are closed on Sundays too. My general thoughts on the cafe scene in … Continue reading A Skip and A Hop Through Adelaide’s Cafes

Common Man Coffee Roasters | Not Just Another Cafe

More than a cafe, Common Man Coffee Roasters offers a barista training facility, wholesale services for coffee from sourcing, roasting to equipment, as well as a space for community events. But the cafe part of it is actually, rather uncommon. Their menu is creative and delightful, and even the usual big breakfast offering is enlivened by fresh homemade baked pork cannellini beans and juicy grilled portobello mushrooms. The … Continue reading Common Man Coffee Roasters | Not Just Another Cafe
