Savouring every single bite, I utterly enjoyed
@ganache.sg ’s signature Pandan Chiffon ($22). One of the best renditions I have tasted, the homemade cake was soft, airy, and surprisingly moist. In all its simplicity and glory, the classic flavour was done superbly well. Freshly baked with no artificial colouring, flavouring or preservative; what stood out for me was the irresistible and distinctive fragrance that just lingers gently in the mouth. The cake was also not overly sweet, great for tea time and breakfast. Just fluffy perfection! So good that I have since ordered a handful of times.

*Order via DM or WhatsApp Lorrine. Delivery fee varies from $4 to $12 depending on location.

Foolproof and satisfying despite having been in a box for an hour or so, the Parma ($26) pizza arrived as a bare red pizza with melted mozzarella and the ingredients separated in another container; which I figured helped retain some of the freshness. Dressed with parma ham, rucola, pomegranate, and shaved parmesan; the classic pie was salty though not overwhelmingly so. The rucola as well as pomegranate adding a refreshing sharpness and texture to the dish. There was also a pleasant touch of smokiness from the distinct leopard-spotting.

Nothing beats the aroma of a piping hot pie fresh from a wood-fired oven! But for now, we can only have the next best thing and that, I believe is Zazz Pizza delivered right to our doorstep. At $26, their namesake pizza comes with Australian ribeye, mozzarella, mixed mushrooms, parmesan, truffle cream, rucola, and cherry tomatoes. Although the pizza crust was regrettably soft and the ribeye beef chunks a tad dry, the flavours were certainly superb. A simple and elegant combination, the specialty white pizza had a good amount of greens to counter the heaviness of the meat. The earthy notes from the mushrooms and truffle cream also worked harmoniously with the savouriness of the cheeses as well as the burst of sweetness from the tomatoes.

An awesome stay home comfort food, NUDE Seafood’s ‘Bouillabaisse’ Seafood Stew ($25.60) was such a treat! Chockfull of seafood-y goodness, it was loaded with tiger prawn, clams, cuttlefish, rouille, watercress, baby corn, desiree potato and a delightful hunk of fish (which i believe is barramundi). The fillet as well as the cuttlefish were tender and fresh-tasting. What I liked most was that the broth was richly textured yet delicately flavoured - getting the natural flavours of the ingredients, both sweet and tangy. The vegetables also provided a nice crunch and the crusty sourdough that came with the stew made the meal more hearty.

The Hojicha Basque Burnt Cheesecake ($8), on the other hand, was sweeter and the slice more molten. The nuances of the teas were distinct although I would favour a stronger profile as I am a tea lover. And with that said, I enjoyed the Hojicha one a tad more as compared to the Matcha and Original cheesecake. The roasted aroma matched well with the creamy rich cheese - the prominence of the bitter, earthy notes complementing the caramelized top.

With the green light to resume their business today, confectioneries and cake shops are sure to be busy! Thus, please stay safe and don’t rush~

I do plan to buy some bakes soon but for now, I will just have to make do with visuals so here’s a throwback of my purchases early this month from Bakery Brera & Fine Foods. Having snagged an order before the extended circuit breaker, I got all three flavours - the original, Matcha and Hojicha Basque Burnt Cheesecake to try. At $7.50 a slice, the Basque Burnt Cheesecake had a more pronounced burned flavour as compared to the other two and held a tinge of rum. I would prefer it if it had a sharp citrus note or tanginess to add a more refreshing quality to the cake but it was still very enjoyable and not at all cloying. Texture-wise, it wasn’t too oozy. Soft and almost mousse-like in the center, the cake was decadent yet well-balanced.

No excuse needed to throw me a noods and dumpling party!

Getting my fix and settling my family’s meal for the day, the Dumpling Party for 4 ($75/ free delivery with code PARTY4) is a set featuring 30 dumplings (a mix of 3 flavours) and 4 boxes of egg noodles. Ordered off Dumpling Darlings' website, I chose all my favourites - Pan Fried Smoked Duck, Deep Fried Pierogis, and Pan Fried Original Dumpling with Miso Mushroom Noodles as well as Braised Pork Noodles. The pan-fried dumplings were just as good as I remembered with flavourful chunks of smoked duck in the former and yummy minced pork collar stuffed in the OG. And of course, for the Fried Pierogi, it would have been best served there pipping hot but still travelled relatively well. The noodles too, were two thumbs up with perfectly halved Hanjuku Eggs!

Ideal for tea time, Burnt Ends' Scones ($19.30/ half dozen) were simply lovely. I had warmed them up in the toaster for a couple of minutes and so when I had them they were slightly crumbly on the outside and tender on the inside. They were also buttery and not overly dense. Great with a side of chilled sweet strawberry jam, the scones were lightly sweetened on their own and really the best accompaniment to a warm cup of tea.

What a treat these half dozen Chocolate Cream Doughnuts ($25.70) from Burnt Ends' bakery were! My reward for staying indoors, the fancy treats were decadent yet not overly sinful as the sweet sugar coating matched perfectly and was well-balanced by the smooth, bittersweet cream. Stuffed with 70% and 50% chocolate, the pillowy brioche-style doughnuts had an amazing chew too. Also, the ratio of cream to doughnut was superb as there was a good amount of filling to go with each bite.

Saving me the hassle of DIY-ing and as someone who has made some poorly chosen combinations, I am all for Wooshi’s signature rolls that loads up on interesting ingredients as well as presents a vibrant spin on the quintessential sushi. Having the Miss C ($6.90/ $8.50 order online ), it is literally a zhng version of the California roll - foolproof and tasty. With Nori Wrap, White Rice, Sliced Avocado, Crunchy Ebiko, Kani Sticks, Curly Cucumber, Carrot Strips, Tempura Puffs, and Holy Mayo Sauce; I also added an extra $2 for salmon, cause why not! 

And being less adventurous, I got the other Japanese inspired flavour off the menu - Hip Hiroshi ($8.90/ $10.70 order online). Wrapped in nori was White Rice, Tempura Ebi, a mix of Totally Teriyaki and Yoozoo Sesame Mix Sauce, Crunchy Ebiko, Mixed Cabbage, Curly Cucumber, Japanese Ginger, Tempura Enoki, as well as Bonito Furikake. Lots of flavours but meld together well and I enjoyed the textures.

Delivery is available islandwide on their page.

Having Singapore exclusive Pandan Shake ($7.80), I appreciated the thicc consistency and the textures from the gula melaka crumbles layered atop. The floral taste of pandan was strong which I enjoyed and in terms of sweetness was alright for me as I have a slightly higher tolerance for sweet but may be cloying for most.

Here’s a throwback to just a couple weeks ago, where I finally visited Shake Shack at their Neil Road outlet for the very first time. Having heard some mixed reviews on the fries, I decided to save some calories and went straight for a classic combination - burger and shake.

Crispy, juicy and wonderfully savoury; the ‘Shroom Burger ($10.80) was pretty satisfying. A great meat-free option served with soft potato bun, greens and their signature ShackSauce. Love the oozy muenster and cheddar cheeses encased within the fried portobello mushroom as well as the thin crunchy exterior. The battered mushroom also had a nice meaty bite and imparted a lovely earthy, smoky flavour that complemented the subtle sharpness of the melted cheeses.
