The cake that stole the show for me is the Yuzu Meringue ($8). The vanilla sponge is made with Japanese Yuzu juice and curd, and the cake is covered in a layer of Italian meringue that is torched till golden brown. The cake is super tangy and refreshing, and the citrusy tones go really well with the meringue.

Orh Nee is my all-time favourite wedding banquet dessert and the Orh Nee ($8) from Luna is a pretty neat interpretation of it. It features an airy vanilla sponge layered with a velvety yam ginkgo paste and topped with a light coconut Chantilly cream, crunchy white chocolate pearls and desiccated coconut. The texture and flavour of the different elements complement one another, and I love how the yam flavour is prominent without being too sweet.

I’m not a big fan of chocolate, but the Dark Chocolate Sundae ($14) with Buttermilk Waffle ($5) is surprisingly good. The dark chocolate ice cream is not overly sweet, and the flavours are well-balanced by the zingy passionfruit curd and raspberry coulis, which add a streak of citrusy freshness to the dessert. The crunch from the hazelnut and chocolate crumb complements the velvety texture of the dark chocolate ice cream. The buttermilk waffle is crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. A perfect treat for the weekends💁🏻‍♀️

Every time I visit Populus, the desserts keep outdoing each other! This time round, I tried the Sticky Date Pudding ($13) and it was excellent - one of the best I ever had actually. The pudding is warm, chewy and very fragrant. I like that it is not overly sweet, even though it is served with vanilla bean ice cream and dulce de leche sauce (sweetened milk sauce). The sticky date pudding is topped with cornflake crumbs for an extra crunch. I have a soft spot of warm desserts, and this will probably occupy a spot somewhere at the top of my list of favourites.

I have always been a fan of Kki Sweets for their delicate desserts and the Soufflé Cheesecake ($8.50) I had at The Providore did not disappoint. The cheesecake is light and fluffy (almost like a mousse), has just the right amount of sweetness and is infused with a tinge of orange fragrance. So good!

The Salted Caramel Carrot Cake ($8) from Populus has everything I look for in a good slice of carrot cake - it is soft, moist, flavourful and packed with walnuts. The cream cheese frosting is not too sweet as well - perfect afternoon tea treat with a cup of coffee:)

Thanks to the current Circuit Breaker, I finally tried all 6 yoghurt muffin flavours from Skinny Cakes, a bakery located inside Boon Keng MRT station. The muffins are $2 each (6 for $10) and come in these flavours: Sea Salt Caramel, Double Choc Chip, Chocolate Banana Walnut, Earl Grey Almond, Cranberry Walnut and Blueberry Chia Seeds. As the muffins are made with yoghurt, real fruits and brown sugar, they are not very sweet and are quite light and fluffy. A pretty delicious and wholesome tea break snack!

The Dar Dar Mille Crepe ($8.90) from Sinpopo is a wonderful cross between Kueh Dadar and Mille Crepe. Each layer of Pandan crepe is packed with a generous layer of grated coconut and fresh Gula Melaka cream and the topmost layer is caramelised. I love how the sweetness of the Gula Melaka does not overpower the fragrance and texture of the grated coconut. Good stuff!

The Gula Melaka Pandan Cake ($6) from Joe & Dough does not look like much but it’s da bomb! The pandan infused butter cake is soft and moist. It is topped with a delicious layer of Gula Melaka (palm sugar) and a generous sprinkle of desiccated coconut - so good!

This is one fluffy Signature Roll ($6) from Flor Patisserie! The brown sugar sponge cake is super soft. I like that the brown sugar fragrance is strong without being overly sweet. The Chantilly cream looks like a lot but it is actually very light with a hint of Gula Melaka - delicious!

Stumbled upon a quirky and cosy cafe at Rangoon Road called Gather The Misfits. We ordered Ice Cream & Waffles ($13 for waffles with 2 scoops) to share and I really like the waffle that is slightly chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside. It’s a perfect match with Roasted Banana and Earl Grey ice cream, which are creamy and flavourful but not too sweet. The Flat White is smooth and not very acidic, which is my kind of coffee. There are also complementary boardgames and books to choose from, as well as a little shop inside the cafe. Lovely!


Chocolat N’ Spice (#01-18) is an old-school muffin shop located at Tanjong Pagar Plaza. On weekdays, the freshly baked muffins attract a long line of office workers stopping by for a post-lunch snack. I have tried 3 flavours: Banana Walnut ($1.30), Cheese ($1.30) and Double Choc ($1.50). The muffins are really good - they are soft, buttery, fragrant and because the turnover rate is so high, they are usually warm and fresh from the oven! My favourite is banana walnut - there are actual banana slices inside the muffin that are baked till soft. Love how comforting and wallet-friendly this is:)!
