The moon cake business is big within the Singaporean Chinese, all Chinese owned companies gift their clients with moon cakes. The flavours have diversified over the years from the traditional plain lotus paste with egg yolks to a multitude of modern flavours. This beauty is called ‘Flaming Emerald’, with red rice yeast butter skin, cane sugar free pandan flavoured (my phone autocorrected to panda 🐼 flavoured and I almost didn’t notice 🤣) lotus paste with whole pumpkin seeds and a pumpkin paste centre. This is marketed as a “healthy” moon cake, these days even moon cake brands are getting in to the low sugar, healthier options. Only 3 more days til mid autumn so get buying those moon cakes!! #mooncake #mooncakefestival #midautumnfestival #beautifulfood #prettyfood

In fact, I walked past it twice before my friend came and got me, I couldn’t even find it when I was specifically looking for it! RONIN has very minimal signage and is tucked away on the bottom floor along Hong Kong Street, it is even set back a distance from the road. I don’t know how anyone has ever just happened across this pace before. Inside it is cosy, quite dark but in a nice relaxing way rather than annoying I can’t see what I’m eating way. The service here was some of the best I’ve had in Singapore, so friendly and attentive (sorry, but very unlike most service you get here!!). I came in at 5:15pm and although the closed at 6pm they cheerily served me my late, late lunch of a Fungi Sandwich with portobello mushrooms, Emmental cheese, caramelised onions and rocket. It was super delish and although it wasn’t mentioned on the menu it had a truffle aftertaste so I wonder if they used truffle oil too? It was super tasty, I can’t wait to go back and try their extensive breakfast menu. If you want to go, maybe let me know first so I can guide you there tho!!

Back in the UK (when we had an oven) I used to make them frequently, however they were invariably soggy no matter what I tried. These were perfectly crispy 😋 I opted for the falafel wrap this time, there was an option saying “for spicy falafel ask waiter” so I did, and they were!! Also in the wrap was lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, beetroot and capsicum among others, smothered in a gorgeous garlic alioli. There is also a side of the alioli to dip chips in and a wee bowl of coleslaw. A hearty meal for just SGD15!

Usually there is a queue outside of any DTF at any time of day, but at 8:45pm on a Tuesday it was empty! We were seated straight away. I went for my fave, the veggie Dan Dan noodles in a peanut broth. Always so delicious, I slurped the whole bowl in seconds 💕 #dintaifung #dandannoodles #bedokmall #noodles #noodlebowl #taiwanesefood

The stall that attracted me however was filled with vibrant coloured moon cakes covered in pretty floral patterns and Chinese characters. Even better, they were special low sugar mooncakes and they had an amazing array of flavours. I only regret that there were soooooo many to choose from and I couldn’t really warrant buying more than one....I went for this too perfect to ruin (although I did, swipe left to see the just as perfect insides 💕) ‘Blue Danube’ with blueberries in the casing, and creamy mung bean cheese paste inside. Just look how perfect it is inside and out 😍 Among others, they also offer a vibrant pink ‘Crimson Opera’ with beetroot, cheese and creamy white chocolate, a ‘Violet Harmony’ with taro and sweet potato with o’mochi inside and a Green Tea with milk which I almost went for but figured I always go for matcha! They are huge, but I think I can justify maybe one...or two...more before mooncake season is over!!

We went to the buffet on Saturday night before the Grand Prix and they had these super cute chocolates for dessert 💕they were hard to photograph and the plate was warm so they kept melting and sliding around the plate 🙄 #chocolate #choc #chocolatecar #formulaone #formula1 #sweettreats #vrooom

We also bumped in to @lulubennetti who just happened to be on the table right next to ours! Truffles scrambled eggs, sautéed mushrooms and sourdough toast with roe (not going to lie, not a big fan of the roe...didn’t mention that on the menu...) to keep me going through 3 classes. #curiouspalette #scrambledeggs #truffle #truffledeggs #brunch #mushrooms

My old fave @projectacai is only a few doors down from the studio, so I grabbed a quick little Flower Bowl before my classes. This ‘handy’ size was just right to keep me going, and was packed with blended Acai base, served with 14 different toppings including handmade granola, fruits (mango, dragonfruit, banana, grapes, blueberries) and superfoods (bee pollen, goji berries, chia seeds). #acai #acaibowl #projectacai #superfood #healthyfood #fitfood

A huge bowl of penne arrabbiata from our lunchtime fave @sons.singapore! Such good value lunch menu and beautifully prepared food. #italianfood #penne #pennearrabbiata #sonssingapore #foodcloseup 👀

Last time I tried to go it had just closed so have had to wait until my return, so this was a long anticipated visit! The cafe is very instagram worthy with urban concrete and metal greys, plastic pallets for seating mixed in with tropical foliage. The service is very good (which in itself is unusual for Singapore, sorry but it’s true!), attentive and friendly without being annoying. I was seated at the bar which faces the open kitchen, so you can watch the chefs dash around making your food. They then serve it to you directly which is a nice touch. I went for the fried three mushroom mix with poached eggs and sourdough with rosemary butter. A generous amount of mushrooms which didn’t really tally with the bread ration in my opinion. It there you go! Neither blown away nor disappointed so a solid 8/10!

In Singapore if you don’t want sweet, always ask for less sugar or else - Singaporeans have a very sweet tooth. #icedkopi #kopi #kopisiewdai #coffee #icedcoffee #earlystart #needcoffee #yogateacherdiet

Here we have a nut roast with shredded cabbage, carrots and parsnip, roasties and the all important Yorkshire pudding! Along with a sweet onion gravy and curiously half a baked apple. A little disappointing and over cooked, but then I tend to find 9/10 roasts are 😹 #roast #roastdinner #sunday #sundayroast #sundaydinner #nutroast #vegetarian #veggie #uk #unitedkingdom #england #britishfood #britishtradition
