For some reason this bun was more dense than the coco one. The red bean was pure paste (no skin) and was quite hearty, very dense and not too sweet. In comparison mama's red bean bun feels much sweeter. It’s pretty decent but I prefer the coco bun as the bread tasted better!

The bun was v soft and floofy, coco filling was joosy and sweet, I enjoyed it! Might be on par with oishi's coco bun which is one of my fav places for coco buns. Also, it’s great that they didn't use orange sugar. I’m more partial to brown coco filling over orange ones, bc I prefer the gula melaka taste over orange sugar.

There are quite a number of cafes serving up bottled coffee around the City Hall area, but Berthold Delikatssen’s slow brew coffee line-up is probably the lesser mentioned one of the lot — a cafe that is located at the shopping arcade area of The Capitol Kempinski Hotel; the same area which you will be able to find other F&B establishments such as Broadway American Diner (formerly known as Capitol Milk Bar) and Frieda Restaurant.

Have actually heard about their slow brew coffee line-up quite a couple of months ago — actually had their “The Cool Santa Brew”; a slow brew coffee infused with orange and cinnamon, which was a Christmas special run during December last year when dine-in was allowed. Found myself going for the Veni Vidi Vici and 5pm to-go for the weekend (as with my usual habit of buying bottled coffee to tide over the weekends during the Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) where dine-in is not allowed).

To be very fair, the Veni Vidi Vici isn’t quite my cuppa — whilst I generally favour milkier cold brew/bottled coffees that are slightly sweetened (more of a beverage than a serious caffeine booster, the Veni Vidi Vici reminded me of a rather basic brew made using Arabica beans that is infused with milk and toffee cream; that sort of flat, slightly roasty body which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. That being said, while we had the cold brew just a day after it was being bought (and well before the stated expiry), we weren’t fans of how the cream started to congregate and stuck along the side of the mug we are having it from.

The 5pm is one of those flavours that really intrigued me as a black bottled brew — no milk added, but infused with dark rum and maple syrup. Whilst the base note of the coffee is still rather flat and lacks punchiness, I liked how the dark rum here presented a slight balance without being excessively heavy against the lightness of the black coffee; each sip also comes with a whiff of slight sweetness in its finish after the one tastes the body of the dark rum. It carries what it promises — “shifting one’s daytime energy and unwinding the senses to nocturnal possibilities”; a rather mysterious and dreamy concoction.

Berthold Delikatssen also does offer other intriguing flavours for their slow-brew coffee, including variations such as the Local Hero (slow brew coffee infused with Pandan-infused Coconut Milk, Pandan Syrup and Gula Melaka), and the Ready to Matcha (slow brew coffee blended with Matcha, Milk and Sugar). Their range of slow brew coffee, gourmet spreads and food can be ordered via the website of The Capitol Kempinski Hotel (delivery and self pick-up), and also available for takeaway through walk-ins as well.

Pizza that never fails!
You can order easily from their WhatsApp channel to takeaway in the current phase (find it the link via their Facebook page)

Went to Bakehaus and bought some pastries. Tried the crossaint, kouigon amann and the herb and garlic baguette. The kouigon amann is good but overpriced! Everything is nice except for the baguette.

Gluten free Valrhona 70% brownie ($4.50)
This was extremely fudgey and gooey, and definitely not cakey. Would say that it gets jelak very quickly because of the rich chocolate, so would be best to share it with someone.

Matcha Macadamia Cookie ($3.70)
Topped with Valrhona White Chocolate, this cookie had an earthy Matcha flavour, which although isn't the strong bitter kind, still was pretty enjoyable imo. I did like the addition of macadamia - definitely more fragrant with it.

Been highly raved and is always sold out pretty quickly, so I'm glad to have had the chance to at least try their bookies and brownie when I headed down to try their bakes.

Brookie ($3.70)
A decent cookie that's really soft with gooey chocolate after heating up. Wouldn't consider it amazing but can give it a try if you are nearby.
