I have tried tumeric latte in pretty much most places .

Really liking the one from cedele especially the outlet at Raffles City . Well foamed with a strong tumeric flavour - ready to increase your immunity by 10 x .

Great service from the peeps at Raffles City -
Seems like a new changeover if staff -

Very friendly and very helpful in giving good recommendations especially “ daddy’s girl “ - you know who you are 😍

Nice homemade yam cake. Full of authentic yam flavour .

Very similar taste and texture with the ones at le tian tian ( one Raffles Place / Bukit Timah ) - I wonder if they are related - menu looks 80 percent similar too .

Portions are more generous than le tian tian’s.

So I’d say - come here for your yam cake and go to le tian tian for your desserts .

Found the desserts at le tian tian more robust in flavour - probably using more of the good stuff for their almond and sesame paste .

Morning vibes at Y Y...

It is weird how people are creatures of habit.
Although I these are the standard items that I would typically order at YY but after their renovation , I find that the food is just simpler not the same - even the staffing has changed slightly - somehow not as friendly or as family - like as before .

The bread was significantly less fluffy and less aromatic than before and not as well toasted and the morning bee Hoon was slightly more oily and portions have reduced .

Hopefully things change soon .

Papa rich is the best place for a leisurely afternoon tea the singapore way .

I have introduced a lot of people to papa rich and have converted many skeptics to supporters .

For one - they use high quality ingredients and homemade kaya and homemade bread unlike ahem ... T.B ....
And the menu is highly innovative and prices are reasonable for the quality you get .

Featured here is their version of “ latte “ which is actually Milo and Kopi . It’s served with a light layer of foam and the Milo and aromatic Kopi just co- mingle to form such a good balance of taste .
Ask for less sweet if you are a “ bitter sweet” kind of person like me 😂. ( not available at the habourfront outlet for some weird reason ) . This cup of chocolatey - coffee goodness is perfect for the stormy weather today .

You must must must also try their peanut butter on traditional Hainan toast. It beats any toast anywhere . Chunky ,not too sweet peanut butter on a fragrant very crusty Hainan toast .

Lastly finish off with their Penang char kwey Teow which is full of wok hei - I kid you not - it can rival those that we had on site in Penang . They used to use fresh prawns but now “ crustal prawns “ are used but the taste is not compromised . Ask for extra spicy for for a fiery kick .

Try and see if you concur with me .

I love the pastries from so good bakery .

Especially they short crust egg tart.

But I find that service standards are declining and they broke the last straw today .

If you had to buy some pastries as a gift for a friend and requested for a suitable box ( slightly longer box) to present your pastries and was rejected .

This happens when the service staff shows you how unhappy they are by squeezing the pastries in a small box even though the slightly larger box was available .

The unhappiest experience I have had for the whole year . I haven’t complained openly about any food establishment but the many bad experiences at so good bakery at asia square has culminated into my need for expression today .

The cracked tart looks equally unhappy too .

I previously wrote about Le Tian Tian on level 2 of one Raffles Place - about their aromatic yam cakes .

Back for the yam cakes this time but was a bit taken aback by the price - 4.30 for a tiny portion .

Was hoping portions would be a bit more for this price.

Either prices must have gone up or portions reduced 🥺.

Chocolate cake lovers alert 🚨

This is the best kept secret of Cedele .

Probably their best cake around and only available at their Novena outlet .

It is so light and soft and full of an authentic dark chocolate flavour - you wouldn’t be sorry with your calorie bank for eating this I promise .

The only regret is that this is not available as part of their tea and coffee set so ala carte order only 🥰....

So if a value queen like me still gets it ( despite no set discount ) ... you gotta try it .

Cedele at velocity has become one of my favourite no fuss place to get a quick recharge.

I find the coffee here extremely good - differently made as compared to other Cedele outlets - possibly because the crew here is more friendly 🤣 . Somehow the coffee here is more aromatic , more creamy and more delightful .

A plus point is that the location of the cafe slows you to do maximum people watching 😊 one of my favourite activities.

Just sit , sip ( coffee ) and stare ( blankly) ....

I love all things Soft and fluffy.

My first encounter with Castella cakes were from Ah mah traditional cakes because at the queue at the original cake store was too Long.

My trip to Jb last Sunday was rewarding because I managed to get the original cakes without having to queue ( has the craze died down ? )

In my opinion, both cakes are good ( I am vouching for the ones bought in jb , and not Singapore - the quality is quite different ).

The original cakes have a rather unique texture - almost like a pudding . It is jiggly, moist and spongy . Taste wise, it had a light eggy aroma and the sweetness level was just nice which makes it easy to eat .

Ah ma's cakes are also moist but has a texture closer to that of a chiffon cakes. It is also a tiny weeny sweeter that the original cakes. However, the eggy fragrance is more pronounced in ah Ma cakes.

Overall - I would say the original cakes have a higher " Shiok" factor because it has achieved that jiggly , wobbly texture that is just so unique.

Da Chang Jin handmade chee cheong Fun
Blk 44 Holland drive market

This was the only place that I would come for freshly made chee cheong fun because of the QQ texture of the rice rolls and the fiery sambal.

However this time round, the Chilli is almost C grade - quite a far cry from the tasty sambal that was previously served. The soy sauce was just as bad as it was since the last time .

It is sad when stalls compromise on food standards because of rising costs .

I sadly renounce my previous earlier recommendation for this stall .

Following the many good reviews of He Zhong carrot cake ( left photo) , I finally had the chance the chance to try it this evening. At SGD 3, the portion is generous but the eggs and the kueh were a little dry and tough for me and the Chilli was not well distributed throughout the carrot cake. The carrot cake also had a tinge of sweet and so didn't work out too well for me since I like my carrot cake more savoury than sweet. Overall the taste and texture did not win me over as much as Seng Heng's carrot cake (right photo).

I'd choose Seng Heng's carrot cake anytime for its moist and tasty kueh , well cooked eggs, tasty Chilli and good price :)
