This newly-opened donut shop in Telok Ayer is my new favourite in Singapore now ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜‹

We chanced upon @citydonutsg after lunch in the CBD on a weekday afternoon, and i just LOVE all the local flavours infused into these donuts that make them so special! The doughnuts are also FRESHLY MADE and super fluffy which are a huge plus point ๐Ÿ˜‹ The manager of the place, whom we got to talk to for abit, is also super friendly โ˜บ๏ธ

My favourite was no doubt the ๐Ž๐ซ๐ก ๐๐ž๐ž (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ.๐Ÿ“๐ŸŽ), which is featured on the cover pic!!! This is a solid 9/10 for me! JUST LOOK AT THAT ORH NEE FILLING ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿคค You could definitely taste the orh nee, and the filling was just the right level of sweetness, sweet enough for a donut, but not cloyingly sweet! Only downside was that eating the whole thing alone was abit too much HAHA cos its carbs on carbs ๐Ÿ˜‚ But the second time I shared this with my friends and family, and they all loved it ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

The other crowd favourite was ๐˜๐ฎ๐ณ๐ฎ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ.๐Ÿ“๐ŸŽ), which I rate 9/10 too ๐Ÿ˜› It has a distinct yuzu taste, which was really refreshing! Even those who donโ€™t usually like yuzu really enjoyed this donut rendition of the flavour. Somehow, the yuzu helps to lighten the taste of the donut such that it doesnโ€™t feel too jelak even though donuts are usually considered pretty greasy stuff! ๐Ÿ˜‹ Another very well executed donut heheh.

I also tried the ๐Ž๐ง๐๐ž๐ก ๐Ž๐ง๐๐ž๐ก (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ.๐Ÿ–๐ŸŽ) and ๐๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ฎ๐ญ ๐‡๐ข๐ญ๐š๐ฆ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ.๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ), both of which were really interesting in their own ways - I rate them both 7-7.5/10! For the Ondeh Ondeh, I thought it could perhaps have more elements of coconut! And the filling was slightly too sweet towards the end (though I loved the Gula Melaka ๐Ÿคค). The Pulut Hitam was pretty decent too, but I guess I prefer the dessert itself because Iโ€™m not that big a fan of cream (though you can defo still taste the pulut hitam element in the doughnut) โ˜บ๏ธ

While Iโ€™ve had my fair share of donuts whether in Singapore or in Melbourne, I really love local flavours - which will make me go back to City Donut for the Orh Nee and Yuzu doughnuts! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

Went to @burgerandlobstersg for lunch, and we were surprised that we still had to queue for 40 minutes on a weekday! Definitely shows how popular B&L is after all this time.

For 3 of us, we decided to get ๐“๐ก๐ž ๐’๐ก๐š๐ซ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐‚๐จ๐ฆ๐›๐จ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽ++) which consisted of a burger, a lobster roll, a 600g lobster, 2 mocktails, and a dessert.

My favourite was no doubt the ๐Ž๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ข๐ง๐š๐ฅ ๐‘๐จ๐ฅ๐ฅ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–++), which consisted of CHUNKS of lobster meat tossed in lemon mayo ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคค loved how chonky all the meat was, and the brioche toast was simply PERFECT!!! ๐Ÿ˜ 9/10 DEFINITELY get this when you go to B & L! Only downside is that its a relatively small portion, but will definitely fill you up if you opt for the fries and salad option (+$6).

Next, we also tried the ๐Œ๐š๐ฒ๐Ÿ๐š๐ข๐ซ ๐๐ฎ๐ซ๐ ๐ž๐ซ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’++), but this was not anything unlike what Iโ€™ve tried at other burger joints - 6/10 - and in fact found it slightly under-seasoned + not as cheesy as expected )-: Would also recommend getting it Medium Rare instead of Medium, as it can be slightly tough (at least for my liking).

On to the star of the show - the ๐Ž๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ข๐ง๐š๐ฅ ๐‹๐จ๐›๐ฌ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ”๐ŸŽ++ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐Ÿ๐ซ๐ข๐ž๐ฌ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฌ๐š๐ฅ๐š๐) ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคฉ !!! Ok so this is actually SO GOOD like maybe i havenโ€™t had much fresh lobster before, but the lobster we had was SO fresh - the meat was SO tasty and sweet!!!! whether steamed or grilled (we got half steamed and half grilled), it was just SO good. but definitely not a pretty sight when we were trying to get the lobster meat out .... ๐Ÿคก hence its a 8.5/10 HAHA.

We also got the ๐ & ๐‹ ๐๐ข๐ง๐ž๐š๐ฉ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž ๐ˆ๐œ๐ž๐ ๐“๐ž๐š ๐Œ๐จ๐œ๐ค๐ญ๐š๐ข๐ฅ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ—++), ๐๐†-๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Œ๐จ๐œ๐ค๐ญ๐š๐ข๐ฅ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ—++) and ๐‚๐ก๐ž๐ž๐ฌ๐ž๐œ๐š๐ค๐ž ๐“๐š๐ซ๐ญ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ๐Ÿ++) - these were not bad, but not especially noteworthy. Wouldnโ€™t order them on their own. ๐Ÿคญ

Overall, I really enjoyed my visit to B & L, and Iโ€™ll be back for the lobster ๐Ÿฆž๐Ÿคฉ However, note that if you were to eat lobster, it is quite pricey (was $51nett per pax); also Iโ€™ll probably skip the combo next time and get more mains instead ๐Ÿ˜Š #burgerandlobstersg

Made a trip down to Baristart Coffee for an early dinner, and I really love the vibes of this cafe! Itโ€™s centrally located, yet the lighting and ambience is really on point ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ Baristart prides themselves on using Hokkaido BIEI Jersey Milk, which is only produced by about 1% of cows in Japan!

We tried the ๐Ž๐›๐ข๐ก๐ข๐ซ๐จ ๐๐ฎ๐ญ๐š๐๐จ๐ง (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–.๐Ÿ–๐ŸŽ+) as well as the ๐‡๐จ๐ค๐ค๐š๐ข๐๐จ ๐‚๐š๐ซ๐›๐จ๐ง๐š๐ซ๐š (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ๐Ÿ•.๐Ÿ–๐ŸŽ+). Safe to say, the Butadon was my favourite - would rate it a 7/10! Just LOOK at those beautifully placed slices of pork ๐Ÿคค The generous amounts of meat, coupled with the savoury & sweet Teriyaki seasoning really was to my liking. However, I did find some slices of pork to be slightly too tough - so just something to take note.

On the other hand, the Hokkaido Carbonara was kinda an overhype.. โ˜น๏ธ thought it wouldโ€™ve been really cool to try a carbonara pasta cooked with Hokkaido milk + its one of their featured dishes, but heh honestly think this dish left much to be desired... think it does have quite some potential though so hm Iโ€™ll say overall like 5/10.

And to end off our meal, we had the super cute ๐’๐ก๐ข๐ซ๐จ ๐Š๐ฎ๐ฆ๐š (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ—.๐Ÿ–๐ŸŽ+ ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐Ž๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ข๐ง๐š๐ฅ - ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐‡๐จ๐ค๐ค๐š๐ข๐๐จ ๐๐ˆ๐„๐ˆ ๐‰๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ๐ž๐ฒ ๐Œ๐ข๐ฅ๐ค)! ๐Ÿป๐Ÿจ Except uhm the one we got was kinda disfigured and looks like its v sad even though we kinda ordered it for the gram ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ... HAHAHA but it does taste pretty good!! Basically like a typical bingsu, but hm nothing too unique about it other than how cute it looks. Though I must give credit for the super yumz Hokkaido Milk drizzle so 6.5-7/10 (?)

Overall, I may return for the butadon, but not really sure if itโ€™s worth the trip down. But maybe Iโ€™ll try it again one day if Iโ€™m in the area - or if Iโ€™m looking for a place with nice ambience and coffee โ˜บ๏ธ

The afternoon tea experience comes with savoury bite-sized dishes served in a really pretty five-tier tiffin (swipe right to see) ๐Ÿ˜ it also includes unlimited servings of a wide selection of both local and Western desserts - which is perfect for those with a sweet tooth ๐Ÿ˜‹ the menu also changes from time to time, so if Iโ€™m not wrong, its already different now!

Personally, the highlight was the desserts (esp. the local dessert selection) & the quality was really good! ๐Ÿคค The savoury items were great too, but portions were relatively small for the price, and I think it wasnโ€™t anything super note-worthy (though I definitely enjoyed it)! I also think the ambience and experience makes up for it, and thank you to the staff for their impeccable service! โœจ

Will definitely return to Colony for its quality tea-time treats, but probably only when thereโ€™s a special occasion given the price - especially given the charming ambience ๐Ÿคฉ

found this gem of a place thanks to a friendโ€™s recommendation, and we really LOVED the food here!!

Came here for the ๐‚๐ซ๐š๐› ๐—๐Ž ๐…๐ซ๐ข๐ž๐ ๐‘๐ข๐œ๐ž (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ), and it was SO GOOD!!! like actually rate it a 10/10 ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿคฉ this dish was SO well executed; a basically perfect fried rice, one of the best iโ€™ve had. all the components goes so well together in terms of taste and texture; and the portion is rather generous as well!!! the first thing that hit me when this dish was served to us was the wok-hei ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ and the seasoning was totally on point too (loved the generous amount of XO sauce, yet not overpowering), and the texture was further enhanced with the addition of tobiko fish roe!! and just look at that MOUNTAIN of crab meat ..... so so good rly ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ actually craving the fried rice while typing this... but yeah only thing to note is the portion is quite a lot and can be quite carb-heavy/jelak, so do share it with a friend and order a non-carb dish especially if youโ€™re a small eater!

Next, the ๐€๐ง๐ ๐ค๐š๐ซ ๐๐ซ๐š๐ฐ๐ง๐ฌ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ๐Ÿ”/๐Ÿ‘-๐Ÿ’๐ฉ๐œ๐ฌ) was REALLY good too ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ prawns were seasoned with shio kombu, burnt butter and garlic, and was super fresh and well-executed!!! ๐Ÿคฉ and tip: the burnt butter goes SUPER well with the fried rice so if you order both, donโ€™t forget to leave some of the butter for your rice!!

only downside is that prices are slightly steep (expect to spend ~$25/pax) but NO REGRETS will definitely return!!!! do go give this place a try, especially if youโ€™re in the CBD โœจ #chichidiningsg

been going to Tanuki since its early days as a small outlet at Orchard Central back in 2015, and my favourite ๐“๐ซ๐ฎ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐ฅ๐ž ๐˜๐š๐ค๐ข๐ง๐ข๐ค๐ฎ ๐ƒ๐จ๐ง ($๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ++ ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐ฅ๐ฎ๐ง๐œ๐ก) is still well-executed after all these years! The truffle aroma is relatively subtle compared to what I would prefer, but the beef is well-cooked, so iโ€™ll say its pretty good for the price. The portions are also reasonably generous.

Also love the onsen egg on the top, which definitely goes super well with their seasoned sushi rice! I am not usually a big fan of rice, but the rice at Tanuki is my weakness...... ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿผ

All in all, definitely a place Iโ€™ll always visit whenever I am around the Orchard area and canโ€™t think of anywhere to eat - this is perfect for a meal with a budget < $20 ๐Ÿคฉ

8/10 #teesfoodreviews

had the ๐’๐š๐ฅ๐ฆ๐จ๐ง ๐š๐ง๐ ๐‘๐จ๐ž ๐‘๐ข๐œ๐ž ๐๐จ๐ฐ๐ฅ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ++), and opted for the Multi-Grain rice (+$1)! I rate this don a 8/10 - it was SO good!! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ rather value for money given the generous portions of salmon and roe, and the salmon sashimi was really fresh too. JUST LOOK AT ALL THE SASHIMI!!!! The additional $1 for the multi-grain rice was also worth it, for the nutty texture and lovely aroma ๐Ÿ˜‹ just wished it was slightly less pricey, but i will still be happy to pay for it!

Also tried the ๐๐ž๐š๐ง๐œ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐‚๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐„๐ ๐  (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ”++); and also a 8/10 for this dish! Donโ€™t usually like century egg, but the combination of flavours worked really well, and this was a refreshing change โ˜บ๏ธ

My parents tried the Pork Cheek ($20++) and the Unagi ($23++) rice bowls respectively, and they really enjoyed it as well - so here are some pics of it!

Will definitely return in the near future ๐Ÿ˜Š
