📍Candour Coffee (Duxton Rd)
- Flat White☕️
- Matcha Latte🍵

Probably due to lactose intolerance, went to the washroom straight after having my cup of joe, doubt will be back here again (my prob)...😨

As for the taste, find the flat white to be a little light to my likings...

And the matcha latte, not the bitter type that I have expected, there are better ones out there...

But comparing the two, the matcha is better...

All in all, I guess I’ll skip their beverages in its entirety due to my lactose intolerance issue...

Damage: $6.05 (Burpple Beyond one-for-one)

📍Park Bench Deli (Telok Ayer St)
- Turkey Classic🥪

Complimentary sandwich from Burpple! Thank you!😊
Juicy and tender turkey, moreover, generous portion (look at the pic, not kidding)!😋

The turkey is already tender to begin with (don’t know how they did it), with the lettuce and tomato adding moist to it, you don’t have to worry about the texture~

For meat lover, fret not, they have bacon on top of the turkey, can you imagine how filling this is?

As for the taste, don’t look at it like as if it is bland, the saltiness from the bacon, complements such as pepperoncini, red onion and tomato vinaigrette just enhanced the sandwich with that flavourful taste!

As for the ciabatta, ideally toasted, not that chewy and not that hard, just nice!


Damage: $16

📍Baristart Coffee Singapore⁣⁣
- Flat White☕️⁣⁣

Heavy bodied with nutty finish flat white~
Decent but find it a little too pricey...

There are quite a number of seats available, can cater for groups but a little noisy though...

Quite instagrammable if not of the crowd...

Damage: $7.17 (inclusive of svc charge & GST)

2 Feb’19, Sat⛅️⁣
📍Hvala⁣ (Chjimes)
- Honey Earl Grey Hazelnut Cake🍰⁣
- Hojicha Latte🍵⁣

Back here again!

Like the bitterness and the milk just balanced it out which is not overpowering, nice!

As for the honey earl grey hazelnut cake, a little dry and the cake like not as compact as I expect it to be (look at the holes), not bad for a try, but I think once is enough...

Damage: $13.60

26 Jan’19, Sat🌥⁣⁣
📍Riders Cafe⁣⁣
- Parmesan & Truffle Fries🍟⁣⁣
- Lemonade & Elderflower Craft Soda🥤⁣⁣
- Flat White☕️⁣⁣
Been in my bucket for so super long, like finally~😎⁣⁣

Too full to get anything else, fries & drinks are the best bet~😜⁣⁣ Crispy parmesan & truffle fries (generous portion, ain’t it?), and nice coffee (heavy bodied) were a good choice for that afternoon...

Very ulu & no aircon, but kinda like the ambience here~🐎⁣⁣
⁣Damage: $27.07 incl svc charge & GST

📍Tiong Bahru Bakery
- Long Black☕️
- Flat White🍼
- King’s Cake🍰

The heavy bodied coffee with the fruity finish, definitely a super boost for the day...

Tried their seasonal King’s Cake (almond cake), it’s a little sweet but like the crispy crust, not bad for a try...

And I must say we are really very lucky to get the trinket that was hidden in the cake (one out of so many slices of cake)!

Memorable day sia!

Damage: $19-$20 in total

12 Jan’19, Sat🌦
📍Nylon Coffee Roasters
- White 5oz☕️

Like the medium bodied coffee with nutty finish, Nylon are good at striking a balance between the milk and coffee, making the aftertaste so pleasant that one would want more...

Been going back for their coffee and really gotta say their coffee is nice!

Note: Standing cafe, limited seats available (3 indoor and probably 8 sharing seats outdoor)

Damage: $5

9 Jan’19, Wed🌥
📍Dumpling Darlings
- Lunch Special:
~ Braised Pork Noodles🍖
~ Spicy Sichuan Dumplings🥟
~ Grapefruit Thyme Strawberry Green Tea🍵

Braised pork noodle is like a fusion of ramen, wanton noodles and bak chor mee, the noodles is quite springy, the bak chor is well marinated and the tamago is like so nice, overall, quite yum...

The spicy sichuan dumplings is quite decent but I wouldn’t call it sichuan dumplings for I think it didn’t really carry that spicy/numbness feel like the normal sichuan style most, chilli oil dumplings...

But their fried pierogi dumplings (with mayo) are good, did better than the sichuan one...

The grapefruit thyme strawberry green tea is so so so refreshing, I would like to drink this everyday!

It’s quite expensive if you were to order the dumplings and dishes ala carte, but given the lunch set deal, not bad to give it a try~

I think their noodles and drinks outdo their dumplings, I wouldn’t really suggest coming (and super long queue) just for the dumplings...

Can try once if you are at the vicinity, and especially if you have burpple beyond one-for-one (what a steal)!

Damage: $9.42 (Burpple Beyond one-for-one)

Damage: $5.80

📍The Green Ducklings
- Fried Carrot Cake with Nacho Cheese🧀
- Unagi Sandwich🥪
- Flat White☕️

Fried carrot cake with nacho cheese (and shallot) is something different and didn’t expect it to go well, not bad for a try, but suggest to share as it may go jelak at the end (greasy & cheesy).

Unagi sandwich is a miss in my opinion, it really depends, the bones wasn’t soft to the extent where I can consciously but still swallow them down my throat with the bread...the potato were nice though, I mean, potato can’t really fail right...=X

The flat white is along medium bodied coffee, not bad...

Think come once is enough...

Bonus: Cafe filled with pastel / Tiffany blue colour, quite instagrammable...

Damage: $18.80


22 Dec’18, Sat🌧
📍 W39 Bistro & Bakery
- Matcha Latte🍵

Find the matcha latte a little too sweet, though the matcha is strong but only...

Damage: $6.07


21 Dec’18, Fri☁️
- Chicken Breast (Half) 雞胸肉(半份)🍗
- Konnyaku 冷蒟蒻麵🍜
- Roasted Vegetables 烤蔬菜🥙
- Horseradish Tofu 日式涼拌豆腐🥣

Relatively healthy bowl!

You can mix-and-match the protein with sides, I went for the half chicken breast and 3 sides...

The chicken breast is pinky, tender & juicy! Just loving it!!! Yum!!!

Opted for the konnyaku (cold jelly-like noodles) and tofu for a healthier choice (less calories) and the roasted vege is at the same time flavourful and healthy...

For the konnyaku and tofu are a bit bland, I took the honey garlic sauce to go with it...

Will definitely be back! It’s a steal especially with Entertainer one-for-one!

Damage: $4.75 (Entertainer one-for-one), if not it was $9.50
