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

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

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

Curious Palatte | Imaginative, Quirky Food, Excellent Coffee

With a dish cheekily named ‘Magic Mushrooms’ on their menu, one might expect that the establishment that came up with it would not be a stuffy one. And stuffy Curious Palatte is certainly not, as the bright and airy space with its high ceilings, funky light bulbs and quirky plastic chairs instantly give off a hip and artistic vibe upon entry. Their coffee is ‘magic’ … Continue reading Curious Palatte | Imaginative, Quirky Food, Excellent Coffee

Ô Comptoir | Not Amazing But Kind Of Pleasing

A galette? What’s that, you might ask? Honestly, before I accidentally stumbled across a creperie in Belgium that served this, I had no idea as well. The galette is a type of French crusty cake, but the one more commonly seen in restaurants and such is the Breton galette, a buckwheat flour open faced pancake with savoury fillings. Apparently crêpes refer to the sweet ones … Continue reading Ô Comptoir | Not Amazing But Kind Of Pleasing

Atlas Coffeehouse | Breathing Life Into the Bukit Timah Cafe Scene

When I visited Atlas Coffeehouse a few days ago it was barely a week old, yet patrons were already lining the counter seats facing the busy main road of Bukit Timah. Interestingly, this is not the first hot new cafe that is helmed by another established one, as others before seemed to have been doing so too, with different propositions and monikers (like On The Table by … Continue reading Atlas Coffeehouse | Breathing Life Into the Bukit Timah Cafe Scene

Jimmy Monkey, One North

And here’s another post on one of the One North cafés. Jimmy Monkey has been at One North Residences for around 3 years already though, so I wouldn’t say that it is a new upstart in the area. At the corner of a sleepy residential block next to a shop selling picture frames, you might just walk right past it if you weren’t specifically going … Continue reading Jimmy Monkey, One North
