This little hidden gem has some truly delightful fusion bowls, where you can get purple rice as a base!

My go-to is the Tofu Delight ($8.90) with hot purple rice. The tofus are always perfectly cooked - think agedashi tofu at your favourite Japanese restaurant, soft and lightly fried, with just the right amount of sauce. The purple rice here is amazingly tasty, seasoned with sesame seeds and furikake. All the bowls are cooked on the spot, which counts for all the freshness you taste. I like adding an Onsen egg (+$0.50) as well, cos they are done the proper way Onsen eggs should be.

This was a fulfilling meal that satisfied my clean and green cravings for the day :) 4 vegetables ($1 each) and a bowl of porridge ($0.50) came up to $4.50.

They have a wide array of choices here, but some of the my favourite ones include the Chye Poh omelette, Chap Chye, and soft spinach. The dishes are pretty fresh and tasty, cooked to the right degree to retain their softness, although they tend to be a bit oilier.

Blue Label prides itself as serving the best pizza in Singapore, and indeed it does. It’s not easy to get a table here, as the restaurant’s often fully booked in advance.

With its casual but sophisticated charm, it’s hard not to love this place. An upscale pizzeria, the restaurants keeps things grounded with the 80s rock music playing in the background that is very much reminiscent of your typical American diners. Its intimate size also makes the experience more personal - and I have only the highest compliments for the service we were dished. They were extremely accommodating with our requests as a large group celebrating a birthday!

Now, on to the dishes proper… There’s something inventive in the way Blue Label gives its own twist on each pizza dish - blending what I would consider atypical flavours and textures for pizzas together. Case in point: the Umami Bomb ($29) is assembled with shiitakes, spinach, lemon, anchovy, goat’s cheese, and a cornmeal crust. It was really an explosion of umami-ness, and probably my favourite just because of its uniqueness.

The other popular pizzas in the house that came recommended are the J-Dog ($32) and Black Magic ($38). The pork sausage on the J-Dog was one of the tastier ones I’ve had on pizzas, and the jalapeño red sauce was just fantastic. The Black Magic did feel like it has some secret magic in the black truffle cream sauce which was pretty heavenly. What makes this place the best pizza place for me is their amazing pizza dough, superb ingredients, and standout base sauces.

When you’re there, don’t miss out on the starters either. The honey-garlic-sriracha chicken wings ($14 for 3 drumsticks & wings) were well-glazed with a kick of spiciness and sweetness at the same time. Their State Fair Fries ($25) would satisfy both lovers of fries and wedges, as they are something of an in-between. Having the fried egg and shaved truffle to top the dish was something pretty unique as well.

It won’t be long til I return here again - hopefully, if I can get seats ;)

I love going to coffee roasters - because you know that you’d definitely be able to pick your blends for your espresso-based coffees.

You get a choice between the single-origin blend (from Ethiopia) and a mixed-origin blend (from Ethiopia and Brazil). The allure of dark chocolate, hazelnut and berries was more compelling to me, so I went for the mixed origin. It’s a 70% Ethiopian blend, so the chocolatey and nutty flavours are stronger. We also tried the single-origin blend which has a taste of berries and floral notes. It was unlike the usual fruity brews, and the floral notes came out pretty strong. A pretty light and refreshing espresso-based one that is quite different from the other fruity brews I’ve tasted. Both are worth a try!

When we saw this on the menu, we knew we just had to try it. We were the curious and greedy ones who wanted out very first taste of a dessert pizza.

I love that it had a semblance of the softness of an actually pillow. The crispiness of the crust married with the softness/chewiness of the dough, fudginess of the generous amounts of Nutella filling, and creaminess of the vanilla ice cream, left a pleasant aftertaste in our mouths. The dough is basically the pizza dough that you taste on their other pizzas (which is savoury), but it blends well with the pillowy contents :)

One thing to note is that this is definitely a heavy dessert - which you’d need to share among many! The sheer amount of pizza dough can also get a bit overwhelming after a while.


The best ways to eat Teochew porridge, I find, is always with family and friends. Then only do you get to indulge in an array of dishes :) With Teochew porridge, you’d never feel guilty indulging in them because the “clean feeling” you get from the porridge balances it out ;)

One of the better Teochew porridge places around, that doesn’t burn a hole in your pockets. Dishes are pretty tasty overall, and the porridge soup is great.

Just look how heavenly that kueh is... It’s moist, soft and coconut-y. It hit the perfect balance of sweetness and density - not cloyingly sweet or overly starchy. All the great traits of what makes a perfect kueh in my opinion ;)

It’s probably my favourite kueh here too!

My typical experience with Peranakan fare usually consists of elaborate dishes - and we wondered why they didn’t have the usual crowd favourites like rendang, buah keluak, etc.

As we chatted with the owner about it, he revealed their goal of keeping prices affordable without scrimping on the quality. Simple, hearty, flavourful meals that you would expect to find for lunch at a Peranakan household perhaps?

What we ordered:
- Nasi Kunyit ($5.50)
- Dry Mee Siam ($4.50)
- Mee Rebus ($4.50)
- Fresh Calamansi Juice ($1.50)

We loved the fragrant coconut aroma from the curry in the Nasi Kunyit, the chicken soaked in this, and the soft tamarind-infused rice. The Dry Mee Siam noodles were a unlike what I’ve tried - it tasted like a mix of lemongrass and assam. The Mee Rebus has a different gravy from the typical Mee Rebus which I liked - it’s a bit more bitter and not as thick. But the part of all these dishes has to be the super-shiok chilli can taste the sweetness of the dried shrimp in it :)

And do get the fresh calamansi juice - they freshly squeeze it, which is a rarity nowadays.

P.S. We were told that the place is usually very packed on weekends, where you might not get a table til 2pm. So try to go on weekdays when it’s pretty empty!

Angelina the chief kueh-maker here has a large following of loyal kueh connoisseurs - some of whom come to buy her kuehs in bulk. They use 3 different types of flours to make their kuehs here, which makes for all the difference in quality (the kuehs are really soft).

Kueh Koswee - strong Gula Melaka taste (and probably my favourite)

Ondeh Ondeh - generous portions of moist coconut filling (probably the most I’ve ever seen in an Ondeh Ondeh), but a pity that it doesn’t have the burst in Gula Melaka which I long for

Ubi Kayu Kukus - one of the better steamed tapioca kuehs I’ve had

Kueh Pandan - strong Pandan flavour and among the softer kuehs (and my sis’ favourite)

Getup Getuk - an interesting mix of sweet potato and tapioca, which is denser than the other kuehs

Besides serving great food and beer, B3 also does pretty decent coffees. Their coffees aren’t too strong, but are smooth and well-balanced :)

Maybe it’s the folks, or the coffee, or the concept... but there’s something about this place that feels like home.

It’s my third time here - watching them in the hustle and bustle of a small pop up, then the first day when they opened in this new space, and now seeing their business blossom. I’m still impressed by how they’ve not let the growth of their business crowd out their personal connection with people.

I love that I can talk to the owners about the coffee blends that they have, and that they’ll genuinely be patient enough to help me find one that I like. They rotate their beans fairly often, so coffee lovers will be in for a treat. I even to read about the estate where my beans were from - Acacia Hills in Tanzania.

What’s great is that you can get a good cup of espresso-based coffee for under $5. My double-shot white ($4 + $0.50 for an extra shot) was smooth with a syrupy butterscotch and smooth blood orange finish.

Their Avocado & Dukkah toast ($8) is one of the best avocado toasts I’ve tasted around. The creaminess of the avocados and intense tahini flavour of the hummus is paired well with the lightness from the olive oil, crumbs of feta cheese and pinches of homemade dukkah spices.
