After(s) This One, I Need Insulin @aftersbakerysg Ondeh Ondeh Lava Cake sounds good on paper, and should’ve been good in practice, but it wasn’t. The sponge was thoroughly infused with the pleasant scent of pandan and was soft and fluffy, but that’s where the good stuff stops. The cake is pretty much guaranteed to induce diabetes thanks to just how ridiculously sweet everything was. The gula melaka syrup drizzled over the entire cake was very sweet, the toasted coconut flakes were also sweet, but the worst culprit was definitely the saccharine sweet pandan lava filling. It was pretty much akin to drinking concentrated syrup. The whole cake was so sweet that I found myself turning to the also sweet coconut ice cream for some respite from the deluge of diabetes. Yeah, this is gonna be a no for me dawg.

Ondeh Lava Cake Trying this somewhat new bakery cafe that had opened at The Midtown for quite a while. Apart from serving up the cupcakes that are on display behind the counter, the bakery cafe serves up a number of mains and dessert under their All Day Breakfast menu. Save for the desiccated coconut that is drenched in Gula Melaka, the Lava Cake felt more like a white chocolate lava cake than the Ondeh that it was supposed to be. The neon green filling did eagerly flow out of the cake with a cut of the fork but it seemed to lack that slight Pandan flavour that would bring it closer to the Ondeh Ondeh in terms of flavour. Texture-wise, the cake is a little crusty on the exterior; overall not too bad. The "scoop" of Vanilla ice-cream was mediocre however; while its understandably generic, the texture was unfortunately icy, not to mention how clumpy it simply is aesthetically.

Kopi I am always intrigued by cafes that carry the option of traditional Nanyang coffee — the one here at Afters Bakery was actually not too bad; a little bit thin but still decently aromatic whilst being not too sweet; food for those who prefer their Kopi to come not too heavy/strong/sweet.

For a DIY Pizza Buffet Located up the road from Geylang Serai Market, this new Muslim-owned spot is the place to go for a DIY pizza buffet. You're provided with mini pizza bases, on which you can sprinkle your favourite toppings from their selection laid out — options run the gamut from chicken ham and hot dogs to pineapple and bell pepers, and even sweets like Nutella, marshmallows and all sorts of child-friendly cereal. Pop the pizza into the mini oven on your table to cook for about five minutes, and enjoy! While the pizzas cook, help yourself to a buffet of fillers including spaghetti and soup. Every diner gets two chicken drumlets to munch on too. Bring the family — kids especially will have a whale of a time playing chef. Diners are given 1.5 hours per seating to enjoy the buffet, so pace yourselves. Pro tip: Rhombus Pizza is currently offering an introductory price of $15 per adult and $12 for children (U.P. $18.90 and $15.90 respectively). Reservations are essential. Avg Price: $15 per person Photo by Burppler Dex Neo *Muslim-owned

Pizza Buffet Pizza Buffet ($15) . Who would have thought that a mini pizza buffet concept would actually work? Despite being newly opened, this place was filled when we visited for dinner on a Tuesday evening. Expect a no-frills 90 minutes dining experience complete with paper cups for the freeflow drinks and paper bowls for the spaghetti with homemade bolognese sauce and mushroom soup chock full of thinly sliced mushrooms. . The DIY pizza screams gimmicky but for a fun and lighthearted meal where one gets to play chef and create his very own signature mini-pizza, this was actually therapeutic in its own way after a hectic day at work. Available ingredients include shrimps, pepperoni, sausages, crabsticks, ham, corn, olives, bell peppers, onions, pineapple and mushrooms. They also serve each person 2 pieces of super shiok grilled drumlets which tasted vastly similar to Pizza Hut’s. A tip I experimented with was to use the bolognaise sauce as the pizza base spread on the plain pizza. It is way more flavourful and meaty than just relying on the tomato sauce provided. . Do note that @rhombuspizzasg is currently offering the promotional price of $15 nett till end of the month and thereafter, their usual price would be $18.90. They only take reservations due to the limited seating capacity so remember to call them (98440210) before heading down!

All You Can Eat Pizza Buffet ($18.90) Currently at a promotional price of $15 till the end of August, the DIY pizza buffet where you get to create you own little pizza masterpieces is a pretty fun experience where you get your own little oven! It comes with toppings like cheese, ham, olives, tiny prawns, onions, capsicums and a few other common items. The pizza bread itself seems thick, but it was surprisingly light and crusty so it didn't end up as heavy as I expected. It does get jelat after a while though. Besides the pizzas, there's also mushroom soup, spaghetti (like those you get back in your secondary school days!) and complimentary two pieces of hot drumlets (tastes like Pizza Hut's! 😝) The space itself is pretty small so they currently claim to only accept reservations, so make sure you do so to avoid disappointment. Pro tip from Jayson: Change the pizza sauce base up by using the meaty chicken bologna sauce for a light but meatier sauce.🍝
