Grabbed a pretzel snack from Auntie Anne’s the other day, they have a new outlet at AMK Hub. My to-go flavour is always the sour cream and onion! Pssst, there’s a 1 for 1 pretzel promotion if you sign up for their free membership!

Not bad! Usually won’t go for cream cheese buns even though I love cheese, because the filling often leans more sweet. This however, has a mix of sour cream on top of cream cheese. Exterior is not super crispy though, as we were hoping for based on the name, but has a decent bite to it. Will be back to try their other breads.

Apart from the traditional and more familiar min jiang kuehs, AAA Pancake has these smaller curry puff-shaped ones. There’s a whole range of fillings to choose from - from the familiar peanut and coconut, to more unique ones like coffee and pandan. Went with the pandan and found the filling too thick and tad clumpy. The sweet paste tasted similar to pandan flavoured lotus paste. Filling aside, the skin was pretty soft and not too thick or doughy, especially when it was served warm.

I’m very much not a tau sar pau person at all so I really can’t compare much 🤭 @__zhihui.lim brought me to try this famed one from Forty Hands and it was fluffy soft with a smooth red bean paste filling that’s distinctly less sweet - which we like. Definitely more pricey though!

Haven’t had that many rou jia mo in SG, but enjoyed this! It was sufficiently flaky and crisp, and held a substantial amount of pork. The pork filling was braised thoroughly, not too fatty and didn’t have too strong a porky smell/taste. Kinda pricey, but would have this again! They also have these plain ($3 each, $4.50 for 2), with chicken ($4.50) and spicy beef ($6.50).

Will always get ku chye kueh when I see them so it was no exception here. Filling was flavourful but the skin was slightly thick. Not the best we’ve had.

They also have the classic Soon Kueh, Png Kueh and Yam Kueh which can be ordered in a mix, 5 for $2.50 and $4.50 for 10.

$1.80 for 6 pieces! Skins was moderately soft and chewy, but slightly too thick with less of that oozy brown sugar filling. Would say to skip this!

Was recommended these crackers by Burppler @Michelin5! Saw 4 flavours in total at NTUC - Sea Salt & Vinegar, Sweet Chilli & Sour Cream, as well as these 2, Farmhouse & Cheddar and Sour Cream & Chives. Thought they were the big ones but they’re actually bite-sized. These crackers were super easy to munch on with a delightful light crunch, flavours were strong without being artificial. However, they can get quite salty after a while. They are on promotion now, originally 2 for $4.50!

Have been eyeing this for a while now and finally gave it a try! It’s a tiny stall among the other take-away food stalls just in front of People’s Park Complex - right next to the shop selling lots of bottled drinks. Think they only have this and grilled squid on the menu for now. The grilled cold noodles is made by grilling a sheet of noodle, topped with onions, chili, egg and sausage, before being cut up. Noodle texture is the more dense sort and has a bit of a chew. It’s saucy, spicy and sweet, a pretty addictive combination I must say! Not sure how authentic it is, but I liked it!

Bread was soft and fluffy with a nice chew and came in a pretty big size. Cheese cubes were the slightly stronger and sharper type which complemented well. Would recommend to pop it into the oven for a quick toast!

One of their bigger sized breads, the matcha five-grained bun. Loved the texture this had, it’s slightly chewy and springy but still soft and fluffy! The earthy matcha flavour was pretty distinct as well.

Looked super flat and wasn’t the fluffy kind of bread, but I didn’t really mind it as a snack. It had a slight chew and the cheese inside leaned a bit more savoury. Not the most filling option for its price though!
