Singapore, a melting pot of culture, serves up a wide selection of cuisines to satisfy our taste buds. Never go hungry again.

Was there previously for their flat white and this time round, we got their iced latte and dirty matcha, which is a great beverage to cool down under the sweltering heat.

Ordered the Homemade Waffle ($5) with a double scoop of Banana Walnut and Yubari Rock Melon ($9) but was disappointed with it. Firstly, the waffle was dry and had a hard texture but the saddest part was both the gelato. The former had minimal walnut bits in it that you will not even notice it is there and it had a very weak banana flavour, almost just taste of a milk gelato instead of banana walnut. The Yubari Rock Melon just tasted sweet, very much lacking the rock melon aroma or flavour.

Ordered only the Mentaiko Fries ($14) as it’s really one of the better fries out there as these battered fries remained crispy after awhile and the generous squeeze of mentaiko sauce and topping of furikake gives it an umami boost.

One such café is Three’s A Crowd, which has two outlets currently, and one of them is conveniently located within my vicinity. Got a waffle to go with two scoops of ice cream, namely the Leegacy, which is the café’s signature flavor of dark chocolate and the refreshing Grapefruit & Berry which has a nice tartness and tanginess to it.

Prior to this visit, I have had the buns from the So Good Bakery which are so good, and this sit down restaurant concept has an expanded menu of snacks and mains. Ordered the French Toast & HK Milk Tea set ($4.80), Shrimp Rice Roll ($4.80) and Crispy Condensed Milk Bun ($2) to share and we were pleasantly surprised at how good they turned out to be. The buttery French toast with the honey dip is just a match made in heaven while the silky smooth rice roll with shrimp slides down so easily. My favourite has got to be the crispy bun as it’s topped with melted butter and condensed milk. The crunchy texture with the sweet savoury flavour is just so irresistible to stop.

To welcome the Year of the Ox, the two limited time prosperity flavours include the Pineapple Huat Tart 旺来發 and Mandarin Orange Sorbet 大橘大利, both available for dine in or in pints for takeaways/deliveries.

The former is a pineapple sherbet made with homemade pineapple jam and contains cookie crust for the texture and this creation is to signify a year’s abundance of wealth while the latter is a citrusy sorbet that you can instantly associate with this Chinese New Year staple. Between the both, I prefer the Mandarin Orange Sorbet for the tangy flavour that’s especially refreshing to enjoy. You can have them in a cup, crispy cone or with a flaky croissant together with a scoop of their popular Home Roasted Pistachio.

The one item that immediately caught our eye (and palate) is The Queen’s Conserve ($16), a Kouign Amann pastry that is sandwiching a scoop of lavender ice cream and topped with dollops of passionfruit curd. Everything in this dessert ticked the right boxes, from the buttery pastry to the tanginess of the passionfruit, complemented by the fragrant lavender ice cream.

Think cafe comfort food that is so moreish and hearty that you will keep going back for more.

The thick cut fries come in a substantial quantity with a generous drizzle of mayonnaise, mozzarella and Sriracha cream over it before sautéed smoked duck is added, giving it the finishing touch. The fiery shrimp pizza is the other item that has the Western-Asian fusion touch as the New York pizza base is slathered with a layer of squid ink garlic aioli and lined with fresh tiger prawns before a Thai-inspired chilli dressing is added to it.

At Gelato Labo, I like how they offer traditional gelato flavours while having a selection of unique ones such as the refreshing Watermelon, Mint & Chia Seeds and interesting Navel Orange & White Chrysanthemum Flower and Kyoto Shiso & Yuzu Jelly. Paired with their mochi waffles, this is a quaint gelato cafe that you can visit for your post-meal desserts.

Riding on the donut trend, Simple Café has two stuffed donuts available in Vanilla and Milk Tea flavour, each cost $4.50. Between the two, I prefer the vanilla more as the milk tea cream is lacking in the tea aroma and flavour. Besides their range of cakes, they do have tarts as well and one of them is the Lemon ($8) which has a well-balanced flavour of sweet and sour. The buttery crust helped in complementing the overall flavour and texture while the addition of a mini lemon pound cake at the top gives it the additional zing and boost.

The cream of the crop at Pantler is coincidentally the Chou a la crème ($5.50), which is Pantler’s signature chou pastry that is pipped with pastry cream and contains crunchy nougatine. When you are there, grab one, or even two, as you will not regret chomping down these cream pastries. The guilt will probably only kick in much later but that is after you have enjoyed the moment.

There is a total of 12 savoury galettes, each numbered accordingly and what piqued our interest is the No. 04 ($17), the galette made with buckwheat floor and has toppings of ham, organic egg sunny side up, sautéed mushrooms and Comte cheese. Not only do you get the moreish mushrooms, there is the meat element in the ham while the egg gives it a nice creamy coating. For the sweet crepes that are made from wheat flour, the No. 18 ($10) totally stole the show with the combination of Manuka honey and roasted buckwheat seeds, paired alongside Birds of Paradise’s Hojicha seasalt ice cream. Between the two, I prefer the sweet treat more and I will gladly queue for it again.
