Favourite buy from Boutiques Fair, always😂

Springy, full of lemongrass fragrance and not too sweet, this kueh Ambon from @violetoonsingapore is my ultimate favourite thus far.

First time having this and I loved it. The guokui is a flatbread stuffed with ingredients, came piping hot and super crispy. Got the Si Chuan Pickled Fish - an appetizing sour, salty combination with just a bit of heat - a little heavy on the flavours so it ended up too salty towards the end but I finished it anyway. Probably would be good to share!

This fluffy tausarpau and not-too-sweet fillings from JB, which tastes exactly like my favourite one from a particular cafe but better, because it costs less 🤭

Sadly, I have no idea where to get them from JB and read online the stall that used to sell them in SG doesn’t do so anymore(?) - if anyone knows, please share the love!

The mama very kindly bought this 葱軋饼 for me as it has always been my favourite Taiwanese snack💕!

Never a fan of overtly sticky nougat but somehow this has always been my favourite Taiwanese snack for its sweet-salty combination.

Apparently only available at Paragon’s Tiger Sugar over this weekend, it is priced at $19.90 a box (12 pcs). The taste of brown sugar was pretty mild, but I liked it wasn’t overly sweet and that the biscuit itself wasn’t too oily.

I used to judge people who sit at Yakun eating this. But now I finally understand because this unassuming cracker was so darn good! 😂
Definitely expensive for something that you can do at home, but I am inherently lazy, to do it myself and also can’t say no to the thick slabs of butter, slathered with sweet Kaya, sandwiched between two crisp crackers.

Recommended to share because I had both, alone, and felt a tinge of regret shortly after maxing out my butter quota for the month 😛

Finally got my grubby hands on @offeastandfield’s bakes! 😊

The box of happiness was filled with dark chocolate chip cookie, chocolate chip cookie, earl grey sable, chocolate sable with smoked sea salt, French butter shortbread, apple rum streusel cake and a mini jar of salted caramel.

Every piece was an absolute delight - the cookies were the right amount of chewiness, generous with chocolate chips and best of all, not too sweet with a little saltiness from the dash of sea salt.

I’ve got a weakness for all things tea-related, so while the french butter and chocolate one was good, my favourite of the melt-in-the-mouth buttery sables were definitely the earl grey with its light fragrance!

And we absolutely loved the Apple Rum Streusal Cake. Texture was moist, flavours were quite intense, not cloyingly sweet - like rum and raisin in a cake form! Didn’t heat it up but I think it’d have been fantastic either way 😋 Went really well with the salted caramel sauce which was a nice contrast and also surprisingly not very sweet.

Also loved the effort that was put into every box - just look at the cute print (swipe right). Looking forward to @offeastandfield’s future bake sales!

They kindly offered to heat this up for me and the cruffin was crisp, flakey with oozy matcha in the middle. Texture was great but lacked some buttery fragrance and while there was still a very mild hint of bitterness, it is on the sweeter side for the mum and I - probably good for those with sweet tooth. Will stick to the matcha swiss roll fosure.

One may be a little hesitant to order this seeing how it’s almost the same price as their signature hanger steak - but one bite into this and you’ll realize how addictively good this was. Apart from the drizzle of truffle oil which usually can’t go too wrong, along with nacho cheese sauce and truffle mayo; the wedges were perfectly fried till golden brown, while piping hot and fluffy inside!

The plain prata was light, not overly greasy and crispy indeed but I preferred the mushroom cheese (very generous amount of mushrooms, came piping hot with melted cheese!). While their prata were pretty good, it wasn’t outstandingly so. Could have been the long wait of about half an hour or so (which I don’t really mind), and heightened expectations🤷🏻‍♀️

Not the best but decent enough. Fared pretty well taste wise but it might be too jelak, so get it to share.

Excited to see what looked like Zaku Zaku that we had in Tokyo but perhaps our expectations should have been managed - the Hokkaido cream in the kazu kazu ($3.50) was light but wasn’t crisp as we expected, and pastry was a little too thick for our liking.

Generously stuffed with fried chicken, tartare, topped with black lumpfish caviar. The fried chicken was crisp and tasty but a pity that the bun was a tad dry.
