Exactly how many muffins did I buy?! 🤭

I dare say this was the best out of them all. I even enjoyed it more than the chocolate one as I found that the espresso flavours brought out the banana flavour even more, plus the slight bitterness provided a delicious contrast to the sweet muffin. I wasn’t expecting the melty gooey goodness inside even though this was kept overnight, and it’s good even without reheating! Totally recommend getting this if you see it on the menu!!!

The exterior of this was every bit as glorious as the banana muffin, but it’s what’s inside that sets this apart. If you love tea, try the earl grey muffins when they’re available at bundt because they’re really aromatic and yummy! You can see the tea leaves speckling the muffin. It’s a bit on the crumbly side and not as moist, probably because there’s no banana to hold it together, but it’s light and delightful to munch on. There was a raspberry center and some blueberries studded on top, so while this was definitely a healthier alternative, I wish there’d been more berries inside.

Still a yummy muffin anyway, but if you love bananas or chocolate more, just ditch this and go for the banana muffin!

BUNDT has a price list published somewhere but their daily offerings change every day they don’t bother printing or posting it up, and honestly I’m not even mad. I don’t know how much most of the stuff costs (it’s kinda pricey), but it’s worth it.

Got our paws on the banana muffin today with crunchy oat. This was the Nutella variant, which was arguably the best out of the three (there were espresso and walnut options too). What made it extra awesome was that this muffin cake fresh out of the oven and we devoured it while it was still warm! So good! It was moist and soft, with lots of gooey Nutella and chunks of banana. The crunchy oat bits actually dropped off with some handling, but we just picked them right off and ate them right up. Not too sweet, and just super super tasty. Would totally make another trip down for muffins!

One place I keep coming back to time and again because I really really love their smashed avocado, black cocoa brownies AND coffee.

Bundt has recently upgraded their kitchen and also swapped to new custom-made coffee cups with sippy lids that essentially negate the use of a straw! Hooray! Plus point for the extra thoughtful design that allows for capping the lid so that foreign stuff doesn’t drop in while you’re waiting for the coffee ball to melt.

The coffee is just as good as always, rich and full-bodied, but gets stronger and better the longer you wait for the ice to melt. If you can’t wait, make sure to keep the ice ball so you get this extra strong black coffee once it’s fully melted. Double doses of coffee in one - yes please!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve visited Jin Jin for their MLXG but it looks like their popularity with the supper crowd hasn’t changed. They’ve changed their serving bowls, that’s for sure, but the ingredients offered are pretty much the same. Thankfully the ingredients are weighed separately so you don’t lose out too much if you spam vegetables. This bowl for two with one bowl of rice cost us $18.20 which wasn’t too bad.

I ordered medium spiciness and less oil, and somehow it didn’t quite hit the spot as it did before. The Ma la wasn’t very spicy, and not numbing at all. Still, since it has a good range of ingredients - especially vegetables and mushrooms, I’ll be back again from time to time but I’ll probably get the extra spicy instead.

Maybe a little too early for dessert at 10am, but how to resist especially with the chendol photos around the cafe? We opted for the durian chendol, which came with a generous dollop of durian purée on top.

The durian purée was thick and creamy, and provided a lovely bittersweet contrast with the shaved ice, gula melaka syrup and chendol bits. The ice isn’t as fine as bingsu, but it’s finer and more even than what you’d usually get at a kopitiam or coffee shop. Hidden under the mound of ice were two attap chee and some kidney beans in coconut milk. Very very enjoyable dessert overall, and I would recommend going for the durian chendol over the regular as the durian really elevated my enjoyment of this dessert!

For the many times I’ve visited Starbucks and ordered their drinks or cold brews, I’ve never tried this before.

The cold foam cold brew is for times when a regular cold brew just won’t cut it and you want to lux it up a bit more. A layer of light foam is topped on their cold brew coffee, and you’re given a special sipping lid so be prepared for a foam-stache. I wasn’t sure if the cold foam would actually make much of a difference to the drink, but surprisingly it did. The light and airy foam lent a very slight milkiness and sweetness to the cold brew, which mellowed out the black coffee. To me, it’s the perfect low sugar, low calorie alternative, for days when I don’t feel like drinking my coffee completely black or with too much milk.

This will probably be replacing my usual cold brew orders with coconut milk, as I found this a lot more enjoyable. Definitely give this a shot if you like Starbucks cold brews!

When ordering Cafe Pandan’s nasi Lemak, you get a choice of eggs: omelette or sunny side up, and vegetables available at their heated display.

We had both the chicken cutlet and fried chicken wing nasi Lemak sets at our table with the long beans, one sunny side up and one omelette. I preferred the chicken cutlet over the fried chicken, and the omelette over the sunny side up, but both were good options! I love how tender both chicken options were, the batter was crisp and not too thick. Choose the cutlet if you’re lazy like me 😂 the rice was fragrant enough, but not particularly outstanding. As for the sambal, it was well-balanced, slightly sweet and not very spicy - so everyone can enjoy it.

I’d rate this as above average nasi lemak. It’s not the best in Singapore, but they don’t claim to specialise in any dish in particular, and the main draw of Cafe Pandan is their variety of delicious local dishes and comfortable interior. Definitely a nice place to consider if you’re looking for local food in a cafe setting instead of a hawker center or coffee shop.

Got this together with the ugly bun as a set for about $6. Pricier than a regular coffee shop or kopitiam, but still much cheaper than going out for breakfast at a cafe.

The yuan yang here isn’t too sweet, plus the ratio of coffee to tea and milk is just right such that none of the components overshadow the others. Not sure if the cafe has ties to Tiong Bahru Pau which is just a few shop units down, but I’m sure I’ll be coming back again :)

Complete sucker for this combination and I’m so glad Cafe Pandan sells it here. They’ve completely blown Tong Ah out of the water as my favourite Kaya toast place from now on.

They offer two kinds of toast - traditional (pictured) or thick toast. As you can see, even the traditional toast is super thick despite it being toasted. The toast retains a very fluffy and soft texture on the inside, and it was pure pleasure to eat - almost as though I was having crispy toast with steamed bread inside. The Kaya isn’t overly sweet either, and they were quite generous with the fillings. Try their toast for sure!
