Coffee With An Exotic Touch Consider this Afro cafe in Keong Saik for your next coffee date, the second storey is a gorgeous space — chic and full of personality, with a touch of understated glamour. And more importantly, great coffee — though not quite in the same vein as your typical specialty coffeehouse. - Their selection of coffee is diverse and unique, with plenty of African influences. Moreover, many would be charmed by their special Ubuntu blend's full-bodied and intense character, finished with subtle chocolate notes. - This 𝗠𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗶 𝗹𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲 ($6) was a charming display of their esotericism. The hokkaido milk made it dreamily creamy, but not at all cloying. A medley of spices including cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg added a complementary spice-forward complexity to the coffee, but in a tastefully-restrained ratio that would still endear to less adventurous palates. ----- [𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙤𝙬𝙣] 𝙆𝙖𝙛𝙚 𝙐𝙩𝙪 📍 𝟭𝟮 𝗝𝗶𝗮𝗸 𝗖𝗵𝘂𝗮𝗻 𝗥𝗱, 𝗦𝗶𝗻𝗴𝗮𝗽𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝟬𝟴𝟵𝟮𝟲𝟱 ⏱️ Lunch (Wed-Fri) 10am-5pm, (Sat-Sun) 9am-5pm; Dinner (Wed-Thurs, Sun) 6pm-11pm, (Fri-Sat) 6pm-1am; 𝒄𝒍𝒐𝒔𝒆𝒅 𝒐𝒏 𝑴𝒐𝒏𝒅𝒂𝒚𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑻𝒖𝒆𝒔𝒅𝒂𝒚𝒔

Buttermilk Chicken These popcorn chicken bites ($18) are made of fresh chicken thigh battered with a buttermilk and spice mix and served with a trio of dipping sauces (Congo bongo, mango chili marmalade and house made chili). Personally I like my popcorn chicken big and chunky, and these were unfortunately not that. The meat to batter ratio seemed slightly off. They were piping hot, crispy and seasoned well though and each dipping sauce brought forth its own unique flavor profile. My favorite was the sweet and spicy mango chili marmalade with its refreshing fruity undertones. 7/10

Sunset Cauliflower This is a huge plate of cauliflower ($15) which has been lightly steamed then crisped up slightly to give a slight blush of brown to these florets. It's lightly sprinkled with dukkha (a herb and spice condiment) and dressed with some Dijon dressing and sunflower seeds. It was steaming hot and I had to let it cool a bit before I could comfortably tuck into the food. The cauliflower was cooked well with just the right amount of crunch and softness. The Dijon had a slightly sourish tang (which my dining partner disliked but I didn't mind because cauliflower is generally flavorless and it elevated the taste a little) and the sunflower seeds provided a welcome crunch. Altogether, a rather well thought-out, well put-together vegetable dish perfect for snacking. 8/10

Let’s Get This 🅱️read To the surprise of pretty much nobody, The Bread Shop does a really, REALLY good rendition of French toast ($10 nett). I mean, it’s The Bread Shop and French toast involves bread, so it’s really no surprise. It also helps when you’re a bakery at heart, and all your breads are freshly baked in house. A tremendously T H I C C traditional bread slice (imma go out on a limb and say it’s just ol’ white bread) is lightly coated in egg before it’s pan fried to golden gloriousness. It’s very mildly eggy, and you don’t really get much in the way of egg as you terrorise this toast. The real attractions here are those fresh berries & caramelised bananas. They are so supremely sweet and scintillatingly sumptuous, and when lavishly lathered with the golden syrup, it’s sweet, sweet nirvana. Tack on an extra $3 for a decent cup of cappuccino, and you’ve got a breakfast that’s inclined to make you rise an hour early just like daylight savings time.

All this + yogurt for $12!!! So I stay nearby, and my dad and I were meant to go to lola's for a late lunch. In view of the overwhelming queue we had to find an alternative, and stumbled upon this gem of a place just a stone's throw away. I got the Skinny (scrambled eggs and sautéed mushrooms on rye bread, served with arugula, yogurt with maple syrup and berries, and a fruit juice) while my dad got the lunch set at $12.90 which came with his main (a generous serving of fish and chips), garlic bread, soup of the day AND a drink. Was super impressed not just w the prices but also the quality of food, service and ambience!! No service charge nor gst either. So glad we decided to stop by today after AGES of just walking past without a second glance. Honestly I'd rather go here now than Lola's and will defo be back for more things on the menu - - do give this place a try if you're in the area!

A Berry Fruity Affair Until the clock hits 1 January, it’s still technically Christmas and you can’t change my mind. However, a Christmas fruitcake on Christmas Day itself is rather magical, and it’s even more so with a fruitcake as fabulous as The Bread Shop’s rendition. Upon first impressions, I found it far too spicy, as it was far too inundated with a plethora of spices (think cinnamon, cloves & mixed spice instead of chili). However, the cake scrambled to salvage its reputation for the second impression, and it managed to make an impressive impression the second time round. It’s a little gooey & charmingly chewy in the middle, much akin to sticky toffee pudding, & the notes of caramel within were delightfully delicious. It’s a pretty substantial bar of fruit cake, and it really puts the ‘fruit’ in fruit cake. Every bite was chock full of candied fruit, and every bite was unique & utterly unctuous. Armed with a dollop of whipped cream & thick vanilla ice cream to be utilised at your disposal on the side, it’s a shining example of a competently crafted Christmas cake.
