For a special delivery this time, I reigned in my insane desire to have 2 pints of Blue Milk and decided to give The Bounty a go. That’s coconut ice cream, with toasted desiccated coconut and dark chocolate chips folded in — SO GOOD. The base is creamy yet light, boasting the fabulously buttery and fruity profile of coconut without being too in-your-face; people who aren’t the biggest fans of coconut (like L) would still like it. The desiccated coconut actually carries most of the coconut flavour, adding a lovely crunch and nuttiness. I’d say The Bounty comes this close to dethroning Blue Milk’s top spot in my heart — but just close. If you don’t have a good buddy armed with a car and willing to send you some ice cream goodness, Apiary’s also doing deliveries right now; deets on their ig.

Nothing gets me quite as excited as a good burger. So when Dirty Buns reached out to ask if I wanted to try some of their burgers, the answer was a resounding HELL YES. I patiently waited for my burgers to brave the dinner traffic (cause good things come to those who wait right), took a big first bite, and maaaaan was I in burger heaven. They pride themselves on controlling every component in their burger: the buns and sauces are homemade, and their patties are hand-grounded to their own chuck:brisket meat:fat ratio. And all of that effort shows. I, for one, loved the coarse and meaty patty. Great bite, very well seasoned, and fairly juicy too considering the traveling time and all. The fluffy and soft buns were a great canvas for soaking up all the sauces and extra juices. It was slightly “breadier” than your usual brioche/potato buns, but that worked out fabulously with the delivery process squashing them (which I like btw I’d usually manually squish em if they’re still poofy). Extra brownie points goes to their super savoury and tasty sauce. But hear this: their single patty goes for $8 a la carte, and their double at $11. +$3 gets you a side of handcut fries and Coke. Very very good value. I won’t call this the best burger I’ve ever had, but I will say it’s among my faves especially at its price point. No bullshit here, just solid classic cheeseburgers.

They’re located at Henderson btw geotag’s not up just yet!

A few components are worth applauding: the butterscotch ice cream was smooth and rich, with a wonderful buttery, caramel-y flavour; and the salted toffee sauce had a great balance of flavours and was served piping hot. The star of the show however, was way too dry, exceedingly dense, and hardly warmed up at all. The centre of the cake was still a tad chilled, which really isn’t what you want in a sticky date pudding. Suffice to say I went with high expectations, and left with that utterly deflated. They are currently operating on takeaways and deliveries, and if you do head down (I don’t think this is on the menu now anyway) I’d definitely recommend going for their cheeseburger instead: it is a real winner.

They’ve got their sanger buns, sourdough, doughnuts, and these beautiful cinnamon rolls. And I gotta tell ya, I like em buns and I cannot lie 🥰 How do you not like something that’s called Crackbuns man I mean, just the name itself begs to be loved. It’s soft, sticky, buttery, rich, aggressively sweet, but not achingly so — basically it’s everything good all rolled into a massive bun. It’s definitely a wee drier and tougher when you finally get it home and tuck in, but that’s nothing a quick blast in the microwave won’t solve. They’ve got raisins rolled right in which I’m not the biggest fan of, but I’m just nitpicking here you can easily pluck em out like I did. Now lemme just make some fresh cream cheese frosting to slather on these beauts 🤤

I certainly don’t write about it enough, but I am a huuuuge sucker for milkshakes. Like I would skip 2 meals to down a large malted milkshake (extra malt please) kinda sucker. Before this CB I had what I would consider to be among the best milkshakes in Singapore, at possibly the most unexpected place: Chix Hot Chicken. I expected good, but this was mindblowingly delish. I’d say it comes close to Five Guys if they offer more flavours. This Chix Milo Shake was so smooth, creamy, and thick, it’s practically a thick shake. I did find the milo flavour a little lacking (it’s a very light chocolatey flavour instead of the malty drink), but I was so happy with the texture this didn’t really matter.

The thing about greasy fast food, is that most of the times no one gives a crap about making the components from scratch. It’s more about finding the right supplier, frying everything then dishing it up; not a whole lot of originality there. Doesn’t mean it ain’t good, just that it’s a lot harder to stand out. But the fact is not every supplier offers the same kinda fries, and obviously not all cheese sauces are equal. I, for one, am not a fan of CHIPPY’s nacho cheese, nor all cinema nacho cheese sauces that has too much of a commercial kinda flavour and a strong underlying sweetness. But I do fancy myself some KFC cheese fries. And as far as cheese fries go, I gotta say that Chix Hot Chicken does a CRAZY mean one. Cheese sauce is GREAT, not overly ‘fake’ if you get what I mean, and is generously ladled over a bed of super tasty and fluffy fries. They’re REALLY fluffy, more thick than your average ones, and really well-seasoned — so so important. “Yeah sure but these are just fries,” you say. Never underestimate the role of fries in a fast food meal mate. Anyhoo, Chix Hot Chicken’s FINALLY getting takeaways and deliveries done! So you guys know where to go if em fast food cravings hit 😘

I maintain that they make pretty much the best doughnuts in Singapore, frying up small batches of 18-hour brioche and dipping them in the best glazes — like this beautiful Pandan with Salted Gula Melaka one. I like how fragrant yet subtle the pandan was here (not the artificial and in-your-face sort), though tbh I would’ve preferred more aggressive flavours but that’s just me. I can’t exactly taste the salt in the gula melaka drizzle either, but it wasn’t too sweet so I guess the salt must’ve played a great balancing act without being the star of the show. Not complaining, cause the doughnuts themselves were so good I honestly wouldn’t have minded any glaze at all.

We had the Kaya, PB&J, Lemon Curd, and Salted Caramel (not pictured). I can’t pick a fave cause they were all so so good. Lovely flaky and golden exterior, fluffy buttery and soft insides, filled generously with their homemade jams/sauces. If you’re having these taken away or delivered (head to their profile for more deets), give them a quick blast in the air fryer or oven to get them nice and crisp!

Before this came into place, my sister and I had a really great oat milk iced latte at Korio. She was a little skeptical at first (“oat milk????? Eeeeee.”) but I’ll tell ya, this changed her mind. It’s bold and nutty, with a mellow kinda earthy sweetness, which honestly I don’t always get in an non-dairy coffee drink. If you’re still working in the CBD, Korio’s open for takeaway and they’ve recently set up island-wide delivery!

What I can tell you though, is that this one by Bakery Brera is superb and definitely worth trying. Idk if it’s cause I lugged it all the way home and refrigerated it before eating (I did let it rest out for about 30min), but my slice wasn’t molten and oozy like the others I see online. STILL, the mousse-like texture mine had instead was still amazing. It was soft, light, airy, and literally melts in your mouth. What’s interesting here is the top’s definitely burnt in the bitter carbon, not the nice Maillard reaction, sorta way, but they’ve drizzled a little bit of (what I assume is) syrup over it, and that definitely helps balance it out. It wasn’t too sweet either, and I ate the whole thing in one sitting so...that says a lot 🤤 They’re also doing self-arranged deliveries atm so you can satisfy your cravings right from home 😉

I popped by last weekend hoping to get one of their burnt cheesecakes, but my favourite Two Face was out so what the heck I decided to give the Pandan one a go. SO GOOD. Discernible pandan flavour + not overly sweet + a subtle hint of fragrant coconut + perfect custardy centre = happy happy me.

For $24++, this double cheeseburger seems really overpriced and basic with just patties, cheese, pickles, and some caramelised onions. But when it arrived at our tables (and I took a bite of course), I realised it’s worth every cent. The patties are SUPER thicc (I read it’s 30-50g more than the average), cooked perfectly to our requested doneness, well-seasoned, and soooooo sooooooo juicy. I mean bite into it and you literally have juices dribbling all over your hands. The buns are really soft and fluffy too, pickles just enough for a zing without overpowering everything else, and what’s that damn orange sauce that was so crazy good?! I like how they didn’t just use American cheese or commercial cheddar in this, instead selecting a much meatier cheese which, has a lesser cheesepull factor yes, but added so much oomph. Good news is that this burger is available on #BurppleBeyond for takeaway, and Moosehead’s also doing deliveries! Check out their ig profile for more deets 😉
