Taking peranakan cuisine to the next level, violet oon is really doing it right. Pictured is their signature dried fried laksa. Very generous serving of fresh and succulent prawns were added into the laksa paste that primarily consist of Coconut milk, dried shrimps, curry leaves and chilli with a very spicy kick. Fried with thick white bee hoon, beansprouts, fishcake and fresh prawns, its hard to resist such a dish on the menu.

To get yourself on one of their doughnuts is extremely challenging: walk-ins are just almost impossible. The best way to do so is to call in and "chope" the flavours you want. Not all flavours are made in a day as well. Pictured is their popular cream cheese doughnut. Dusted with sweetness, the insides are creamy cheese savoury. Expect a crusty exterior from the frying and creamy moist interior.

Ordered the lowercase breakfast and nonya chicken rice. I had so many expectations from other reviews but they turn out to be so disappointing. The breakfast set is two miserable pancakes with scrambled eggs,ham and sausages and the nonya chicken rice was unappetising. Are there any good dishes within lowercase? Please share with me, I am curious to know.

Everything here is instagram worthy. The gorgeous interiors are paired with gorgeous display of their handcrafted desserts and drinks. Ordered their strawberry latte which is thick milky strawberry drink and contains real strawberries sliced and arranged into a shape of a flower. The matcha latte was paired with a strawberry ice cream and green tea pockeys.You will love the ambience and beautiful display of food and drinks. Go there for experience but don't expect the food to be wholesomely delicious.

Opened at 7.30am in the morning, this is a great cafe to hang out when I am so early for work. Ordered a hot chocolate that has great cocoa flavour and steamed foam milk for less than $6. Highly recommended to early birds working around the one north area.

This is the highlight of our meal at this newly open cafe in the pasir panjang area. The half melted cheesecake with a burnt caramelised top and a puddle of cream was so delicious. I find it quite hard to describe what it was like. Imagine sweet smelling confectionery flavour blended with creamy cheese that is not overly dense and surfeit. The soft launch menu comprises of main dishes as well. We ordered a korean gochujang grilled chicken which was quite charred and the pulled pork sandwich that was okay with a decent bbq dressing: it is neither overly sweet nor sour.

House sausage mixture that was minced and sandwiched between toasted bread and poached eggs, topped with hollandaise sauce. Served together with a simple salad. The sausage was a little overcooked but still has the nice savoury flavour with seasonings and herbs.

The spicy kick of the swahili fish curry is not to be underestimated. Made from grilled red snapper, habanero, in-house curry paste and tamarind, thus the simultaneous sour, hot and spicy taste which somehow reminds me of assam fish. The stew was served together with coconut rice which resembles our local nasi lemak. Deliciously good for the chilli lovers albeit overly priced. With that pricing, people can have 3 servings of assam fish with nasi lemak.

Rich with Matcha lava and not overly sweet. Thus coffee adds a variety of fruits such as strawberries, grapes, blueberries and crunchy almond flakes that goes well with the matcha hotcake. Mixed berries fruit jam complements the natural sourness from sliced fruits and the creamy lava sweetness. While its very yummy, it was quite pricey for the small portion of lava hotcake given.

It was during lunar new year when we visited this heartland cafe. Tried their chicken chop since it was highly recommended on the menu and I got to say it was a good chicken chop that is affordably priced.

Instead of the usual fries, the meat comes together with mash and brown gravy. Vegetables such as carrots and mushrooms were also given together with the chicken chop. The chicken was pan fried just right : golden brown with no charred or overcooked portions.

Definitely a rare gem within the western heartlands that I will go back to again for a decent meal and a cup of coffee.

Visited Refuel 2 by chance. Happened to be around the bukit merah area and we were looking for a place to chill. Ordered this interesting pasta- gochujang blended carbonara packed with chinese sausages and mushrooms. It tasted like nothing from before because of the asian twist - the red chilli pepper paste and lap cheong flavours were so strong and immersed deep into the creamy sauce. Just when you thought that it should come together with some chinese egg noodles , you bite and realise that it was spaghetti noodles that you have just swallowed.

This place is reminiscent of Wheelers yard and JWC factory in JB- a lovely quiet area to relax and chill within an industrial estate.

They got a roastery to roast their coffee beans imported from south america that were used to craft out cuppas processed from the espresso machines or poured-over coffees.

Opted for a flat white and tried their butter and cinnamon danish - a semi flaky pastry that was covered with crumbs that reminds you of the bits and pieces from an apple crumble. Not overly sweet so that you can appreciate the spicy hint from the cinnamon.

Self confessed glutton. Calories should be wasted on the good stuff.
