Sounds like a winning combination in theory: chocolatey oreo bits, sugary white chocolate glaze and a fluffy doughnut. Unfortunately, the pastry was a little less airy than I would have liked, and overall wasn't so satisfying to bite into.

A decent doughnut, but nothing much to shout about. The KitKat one was better (but I didn't take a pic of that oops). Price: $2.95

One of the dishes we ordered in with their 1-for-1 promo. Crayfish, clams, squid, prawns and mussels in a tomato crab bisque sauce. It wasn't as flavourful as I remember when we had it in stores, but honestly at this price point, I'd definitely get it again.
Price: $27.90

Have been on quite the dessert hunt this Circuit Breaker. Couldn't resist ordering a box of brownies for myself. Loved the cute packaging, crackly brownie tops and fudgy cores. We finished most of it shortly after we received the delivery, but realised they were even more chocolatey and chewy after being refridgerated!
Price: $18 for 18 pieces (half tray)

Having previously attempted a lemon meringue pie myself, I know how much effort it takes to make one.

Their meringue is piped so beautifully, layered gently on top of the tangy lemon curd. It was a little too sour for our palate, but I could appreciate the different textures.

Price: $8

Love their generous portion of fried squid rings, and the tomato sauce that comes on the side for dipping.

PSA: Pietro Italian Restaurant is having a 1-for-1 promotion on their entire menu. While takeaway/delivery doesn't have quite the same ambience as dining in, it's a really solid deal.

Price: $16.90

We really enjoyed it. The tartness of the lemon helped to cut through the density of the pound cake, making it really light. Zesty, crumbly and moist. We couldn't stop ourselves from eating it and finished half the loaf within minutes.

Price: $20

They're like an actual shop selling pasar malam offerings - muah chee, tutu kueh, steamed corn.
Theirs doesn't have a great fluffy texture, but it's freshly made on the spot and easily accessible so it's hard to complain.

Price: $3.20 for 5 pieces

I have to admit this was quite the disappointment. I read rave reviews both on Google and food delivery apps, but this didn't even come close to what people were describing? The grilled chicken thigh was fairly underwhelming, both in terms of taste and texture. So too were the buckwheat soba and grilled corn. I'm all for healthy bowls, but I don't think they should be bland. If I hadn't paid extra to add a portobello mushroom, it would have looked quite skimpy too.

Price: $12.90 + $2.50 (add-on portobello mushroom) = $15.40

My sister surprised us with their assorted tart gift box. This was unanimously voted as everyone's favourite flavour. Sweet strawberries and lightly whipped cream sitting atop a crisp tart base.

Price: $8

Oregano chicken strips, turkey ham, fresh garlic, spinach leaves and turkey bacon, accompanied by mozzarella cheese and a tomato base. Prices are higher than other pizza joints, but I do think Sarpino's delivers quality consistently. Their pizzas arrived warm and within 45 mins.

Price: 2 large gourmet pizzas for $48

They're famous for the donuts, not their brownies, but I think these were worthy of mention too. I love that they use good quality dark chocolate in their bakes.
This brownie square was cakey, crumbly, moist, chocolatey and bitter - all in the best way possible. Just look at those swirls. My sister who has a huge sweet tooth asked me "Why is it so bitter?" and yet proceeded to take many more bites.

Price: $4.50

Homebakers and online bakeries have been a major source of comfort for me this Circuit Breaker period, when I have been craving desserts at home.

I'm not someone who generally loves nutty flavours, but this was yummy! The brown butter cookie had a light nuttiness, while remaining firm yet chewy. The pistachio filling finds itself in a nice middle ground between paste and cream, with ground pistachios, fine sugar crystals and tiny flecks of salt adding textural contrast.

Price: $4.20
