Delifrance_Heritage_Croissants-10

A French Royal High-tea with Délifrance Award-winning Heritage Croissant

Delifrance was a constant presence in shopping malls when I was growing up, even before the onslaught of hipster cafes and coffee joints. Even now, I am still a big fan of their madeleines, which I like to dunk in milk before eating. I also remember their croissants, which I will always order with either egg or tuna mayo! Last Saturday, I attended a tea party organised by Delifrance to launch their new Heritage Croissant, which will be replacing the butter croissant from now on. I was quite wowed by the taste of the croissant – super buttery and fluffy! As you can see from the tags, the new Heritage Croissant has won three stars in the Superior Taste Award from the International Taste and Quality Institute. During the test, it was complimented for being a genuine top-quality croissant with a splendid taste, delicate with a nice tasty finish. We also learnt that the croissants are made from top quality French ingredients, such as premium wheat flour from Grands Moulins de Paris, fresh butter from …

carvers & Co cafe along east coast road katong

Carvers & Co along East Coast Road

Looks like Katong is getting more and more vibrant nowadays with cafes, pubs, massage parlour, shopping malls and hotel. One of the cafe that caught my attention got to be Carvers & Co. They served different menus on weekdays and weekends for both lunch and dinner. So there’s something different whenever you visit the cafe on different days ;) Menus are pasted onto old books which is a good way to recycle them. Deep fried sweet potato chips which can get so addictive… Anchovy Pasta Beer battered fish and chips Dark chocolate tart served with ginger nut and fresh cream which I think is really good ;) Not forgetting to order a cup of latte brewed with beans from Common Man Coffee Roasters. Or you can choose to grab a bottle of beer to go with the roast meats, their signatures. Carvers & Co is a cosy-bistro cafe, with the intention of encouraging parties and groups of people to connect over hearty meals and comfort food. So probably you might want to try this place for your next …

Dutch Colony Coffee at Frankel Ave

Frankel Ave? Where is it at? That’s the first question that I asked my friend when he told me about visiting this cafe at Frankel Ave. It’s actually located at Siglap and it’s accessible by bus. So here we are at Dutch Colony Coffee Co. The moment i step into the cafe, other than going WOW~ the other thing that came across my mind was it looks a little similar to Wimbly Lu, with the extension at the back covered with a glass rooftop with daylight lighting. Definitely a photographer favourite area as daylight lightings makes your photo looks great :) Self service and place your order at the counter. Free flow of ice water available. We ordered a red velvet cheesecake and Raspberry White Chocolate Bundt with 2 cups of latte. Actually i quite like this red velvet cheesecake but my friend don’t really like it as he prefer his. which i think is not bad too lah~ haha! They do conduct workshops that you can register for in the Cafe too! In general, i …

An Epicurean Journey through India Menu at Punjab Grill

If given a choice to choose from, I would usually go for either the western, chinese, japanese, thai and korean cuisine while indian cuisine would probably be the last in my list. After a tasting session at Punjab Grill, I guess it’s not going to be the same anymore! Dining at Punjab Grill is like taking an epicurean journey through Indian’s richly diverse Northwest Frontier Province – the undivided Punjab region, where the source of inspiration for their menus come from. Love the overall ambience and decor and you may not notice that you’re actually dining in a Indian restaurant. Not to worry if you have a big group as there’s long tables available. Let’s move on to the food! We started off with the Smoked Tandoori Duck Shorba Laced with Burnt Garlic Oil. It’s really interesting to have soup in a Indian restaurant as I supposed it’s not common? I love the soup and it’s really good. Rich and savoury with the burnt garlic aroma, perfect! For our appetizers, we have, starting from the left,  the Pan …

RISE restaurant | Celebrate Oktoberfest with Barbeque Thursdays

RISE restaurant is an international buffet restaurant located at the lobby of Tower 1, Marina Bay Sands Hotel. I have not tried the restaurant before, so it was a good opportunity when I got to try their buffet spread last Thursday. In celebration of Oktoberfest, RISE restaurant has added an outdoor barbeque station for patrons to enjoy! The outdoor barbeque will be available every Thursday for the month of October. You can look forward to many different kinds of grilled sausages such as juicy bratwurst, snail sausage, smoked pork and garlic sausage, cheeser krainer among other regular buffet favourites! The sausages are quite flavorful and there are six different kinds of mustards for you to try! Goes very well with the sausages I must say. I am usually not a sausage fan but those sausages were really good.

Supply & Demand @ OrchardGateway

Not long ago, my friends decided to bring me out for dinner as I was kinda down and they brought me to this restaurant hidden in a corner at the newly opened Orchardgateway, Supply & Demand. From what my friend to me, it’s not easy to get a seat there as it’s always full and you need to make reservations online. If not, be prepared to queue up to more than an hour for a seat. We’re lucky as we didn’t wait for long, approx 20 mins on that day, though my friend made a booking online and only to know that he booked the wrong date LOL!

Three Years in a Balloon

A few weeks ago, when my friends and I drove past Upper Paya Lebar Road, I caught sight of a yellow signboard with the words “Three Years in a Balloon” outside a shophouse. Being a sucker for cafes, I was excited and googled about it. I found out that it was a newly opened café, operated by the same people behind Wimbly Lu. Three Years in a Balloon specialises mainly in desserts such as cakes, waffles and ice cream. I also found out that it was only open on weekdays until 7.30pm. I don’t get home before 10pm usually (the café was near my home) so there was no way I could make it after work. Still, the hipster in me wanted to try the café – try it before everyone knows about it! – so I made up my mind to find a free afternoon to visit it. So here I am!
