These Gruyère Cheese & Scallion Scones were so very impressive! They had crusty tops while retaining an amazing fluffy centre, with a lingering savoury aroma when warmed up. 10/10 would get these again!

You can also add on your order with Vanilla Chantilly Cream ($2 for 2oz), Plum Jam ($3 for 2oz) and Butter ($1.50 for 2oz).

Was so worth the wait - finally had the chance to try these highly raved bakes from Burnt Ends! Donuts were super pillow soft and very generously stuffed. Just look at the amount of filling in one piece! We had the mixed box of Nutella, Vanilla Cream and Passionfruit. Favourite was the tangy Passionfruit, while Nutella’s for you if you are looking for something very rich. Vanilla Cream was one that’s more mild and less sweet.

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.

The talented duo of The Tough Cookie constantly surprises and impresses - how pretty do their new tartlets look! They started off with crunchy bite sized cookies that I couldn’t get enough of (favourite is their oatmeal cranberry), and gradually expanded to brownies and now tartlets. These were a satisfying treat that wasn’t too sweet! There’s 2 flavours, Mixed Fruits with a brown butter shell & Earl Grey Chocolate that has an earl grey infused rich valrhona chocolate cream layered with crunch on a chocolate shell. Especially liked the touch of saltiness in the chocolate here. Thought the shells could be a bit sturdier, but also loved the lightness of them. Even though they were refrigerated overnight, the shells retained a very lovely crunch.

The sweet owners are also extending a complimentary delivery promo from now till end April for orders $30 and above, just quote ‘cweizhi’. More order details @thetoughcookie.sg! ✨

Started yesterday’s day off with brunch at the new Chū and Co. that’s nestled within Serangoon Gardens Estate, by the team that was from Micro Bakery. They have a cute little outdoor alley space with a menu of fresh bakes, coffees and teas. We came by around early 11am and a number of the popular items (Ricotta Tartine, Mushroom Plate, etc.) were already sold out. Went with these 2 - Avocado Tartine and Salami Focaccia! Found the Avocado Tartine tad pricey for its size, but it was a tasty one with a creamy thick layer of avocado spread atop the slice of sourdough. The cherry tomatoes dressed in balsamic vinaigrette gave a nice pop of tart sweetness.

If you miss their day bakery, you’d be happy to know that from evening on, you can expect gelato from their gelato lab just next door.

Caught up with pri school friends over Micro Bakery’s bakes - finally trying! First time here so we went with the popular ones - House Ricotta Tartine, Grilled Sourdough Flatbread 1 and Nut Butter Toast. Was quite pricey but still a pretty lovely brunch treat. Enjoyed the ricotta tartine most, it had a thick and creamy smooth layer of ricotta on its crusty sourdough. The juicy cherry tomatoes atop also gave a needed pop of sweetness and acidity. Service could be warmer though & make sure to approach one of the staff to get your name on the waiting list for a table if it’s full.

Yeast Side’s a recent new addition in King Albert Park, serving up bread, bakes and alcohol. Took away their freshly baked sourdough loaves 1 for 1 with Burpple Beyond! I haven’t had that many sourdough to be able to compare properly, but we enjoyed this! Was very value for money with the deal and the bread had a distinct sour touch.

Spent our new year’s eve yesterday in Leeter Tunku Kopitiam’s lovely cozy space tucked in Grassroots Book Room. Had an ice rambutan tea and this pumpkin swissroll that we enjoyed very much - it was fluffy soft, with a super light cream and a mild pumpkin sweetness. Came with a side of orange jam that lent a zesty tang. Their bakes are on rotation, so pop by for a surprise on what’s available that day. Also, the internet signal’s pretty poor as they’re in a corner, but that’ll encourage you to set your phone aside and focus on the food and conversations!

Could smell these even before opening the box! The brownies were the dense, fudgey and super chocolatey sort - probably one of the most generously chocolatey ones I’ve had recently. These definitely satisfies any sweet tooth or strong chocolate cravings. Got to say though, it can get a bit gao so we had them cut into smaller squares to share. But this also means you’ve more to go around! More order details on @bakesbybilly.

Tea break at Bread Yard & of course we had to try their cruffins! They have 4 flavours - Passionfruit, Chocolate Hazelnut and these 2 that we went for, Matcha and Lcyhee. Both fillings were generous and weren’t too sweet, but a pity that they weren’t served as warm as we’d like it to be, so we were missing a more distinct crunch and flakiness. Perhaps better if they were heated for a tad bit longer time.

Dark chocolate sea salt brownies from Oishi Bekingu that are made with less sugar and non-processed ingredients with the goal to satisfy the sweet cravings without the unhealthy stuff added.

Took leave and went on our own mini food trail yesterday. One of our stops was the new Mad Roaster that sits on the 2nd floor of Amoy Food Centre. Included on each cup of their lattes and espresso-based coffees, is a story and a customised coloured logo by the refugees community they aim to support. The matcha latte was a lovely cup that you can request for less sweet, or top up to swap for oat milk.

On top of these drinks, they also serve freshly made brioche on rotation. It was the Chocolate Babka’s turn yesterday and what a delight it was. If you’re having it there, it’s served warm with a spread of custard and topped with crunchy salted-chocolate crumbles - had a crisp exterior and chocolatey fluffy centre that was sweetened just right! Our slice was thinner than usual, so the kind owners offered us two instead. Can’t wait to head back to catch the original and cinnamon brioche!
