The Connoisseur Concerto recently launched their Family Feast Bundle to honour Parents' Day in May and June. The Family Feast Bundle ($128++) includes:

1 Rucola Salad, 1 Chicken Okonomiyaki and 4 Main Courses (choice of Pan-Roasted Barramundi or Herb-Marinated Argentinian Beef Rump Steak) and also a complimentary cake (Petite Cake of the Day) or beverage (tcc Premium Coffee or Iced Lemon Tea). I enjoyed both mains equally - the barramundi is tasty and nicely cooked, while the beef rump steak is tender and flavourful, so either one would be a good choice! The chicken okonomiyaki is pretty good too; it’s a nice side dish to share!

They have also launched 2 new seasonal beverages made with cocoa KITKAT swirls and bites - tcc KITKAT Symphony Latte ($8.80) and tcc KITKAT Choco Milkshake ($9.50). I personally prefer the tcc KITKAT Choco Milkshake, which is rich and creamy!

These seasonal specials will be available till 26 June 2022 for dine-in and takeaway at all tcc art boutique cafes except German Centre.

Finally checked this place off our to-visit list! As I’m not a coffee drinker, my only choices here were their teas. But no complains here, as the matchas we had were really good! We got the iced Hokkaido Matcha Latte ($9) and their seasonal special (Sakura in Kyoto) iced matcha strawberry latte ($9). You can really feel the earthiness in the matcha, and also loved the extra sweetness from the strawberries in the matcha strawberry latte too!

Although this place is not the most convenient to get to, I’d say it is worth visiting for the quality of their drinks and nice zen interior!

We went over to MEMO Cafe for brunch last weekend, and here’s what we had:

~Fish & Chips ($24)
~Wagyu Beef Burger ($22)
~Parma Ham & Burrata Salad ($24)
~Truffle Cheese Fries ($10)
~Hearty Tomato Beef Borscht Soup ($8)

I think the dishes were pretty good in general. The Fish & Chips was solid (crispy on the outside, flaky on the inside), Parma Ham & Burrata Salad was fresh on the palate (love the combo of richness from the cheese, savouriness from the ham and bursts of umami from the tomatoes), Hearty Tomato Beef Borscht Soup was really comforting (reminded me of a soup I used to have in my childhood but that one had alphabet macaroni)! We did like the Wagyu Beef Burger overall but felt that the beef patty was a little under-seasoned; it was decent otherwise when munched on with the other ingredients.

This is a nice spot to have brunch or chill in the Robertson Quay area for sure! Oh ya, they also have an ongoing weekday set lunch (Mon-Fri, 11am to 3pm) promo, where you get a 2-course set lunch with a beverage at only $16. Definitely value for money!

We visited DAWN recently for tea break, and i remember it was almost full house when we were there (probably due to its limited seating space). But that aside, the ambiance here is nice though - very chill and minimalistic!

We got a couple of their bakes to share and drinks as well. Our choice of cakes were both delicious. The Lemon Pound Cake ($5.50) was tangy and dense (in a good way), while the Plum Cake ($6.50) had a nice subtle sweet flavour and was pretty moreish! As for our drinks, we ordered a cold brew tea and soda, but unfortunately the details of what kinds we had has escaped our memory. But, we can vouch that both had lovely floral notes and were refreshing overall!

We were back at FANGKO+ Coffee & Beer recently to try some new items on their menu.

One of the new dishes is the White Chimken (top right pic), which was pretty good! It’s a mixture of chicken and firm tofu cubes drenched in a tangy and creamy sauce which kinda reminded us a little of the Filipino dish sisig. Their Indomie Goreng w/ Smash Chimken is still as yummy as I remembered, and the spiciness is still really deadly even though I had level 3 this time (can’t believe I survived level 6 previously)!😅

We also had their waffle with gelato (pistachio & Fangko gula melaka) for dessert. We liked how light and crispy the waffle was, and the gelatos were so rich and creamy!

PAZZION Café, previously located at Jewel Changi Airport, has recently relocated to Takashimaya Shopping Centre. It’s a lifestyle cafe concept, where you have PAZZION’s retail boutique on the left, and the cafe concept on the right.

I gotta say their food exceeded our expectations. And their food, although slightly pricey, all came in really generous portions too! Their salads were surprisingly yummy (especially the Kale Salad - middle left pic), and I can see myself coming back here just for the salads alone! For their mains, the Barramundi was pretty good imo, and went well with the curry sauce, but it was the Braised Beef Cheek that stood out for us! It was so tender and delicious, and we loved the pureed potato too! Highly recommended! Lastly, both desserts we had weren’t just tasty, they’re pretty IG-worthy as well, and will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth!

The cafe also has a really nice aesthetic and the ambience is quite laidback too. If you are looking for a place to chill while you’re in town next time, add this place to your list of considerations!

Yuzu Tart ($12): Yuzu lovers will definitely enjoy this! There is a huge burst of yuzu flavour as you bite into the tart, with hints of alcohol from the gin. It did get a tad jelak towards the end though.

Champagne Ispahan ($15): This is our favourite among the trio! Taste was unique and refreshing! We loved how the champagne jelly brought the flavours of lychee, raspberry and rose together! Highly recommended!

Pistachio Chocolate Croissant ($7): This is a good croissant overall, but it would have been perfect if the pistachio taste was stronger.

*All their pastries and desserts are made in-house daily

This is a solid brunch plate; each ingredient was good individually - nothing to complain about really!

This is seriously yummy and i highly recommend trying this! The pasta was al dente and the tiger prawns were fresh, but it was the prawn stock that brought everything together and elevated this dish to a must-try!

This is a platter that includes a combination of pan-fried Asian style dumplings with shrimp & pork filling, and Braised Korean pork belly (bossam) & Indonesian style roasted pork belly served with kimchi and achar. My favourite dish in this platter is the bossam, which was really tender. Loved the tangy kimchi too!

Similar to the pizza, it was our first time seeing blue pasta too! This is a handmade butterfly pea flower pappardelle pasta served with shrimps, garlic and chilli flakes. The pasta was al-dente, and not overwhelmingly garlicky, but overall we felt it was a little under-seasoned.

This was really yummy! The shakshuka itself is already pretty indulgent, but the eggs added even more richness to the dish! And it went so well with the buttered toast too!
