Just a few doors away from Geometry, Carrara cafe is another neighborhood minimalistic cafe that serves homemade gelato and western cuisine in the Bukit Merah estate.

Their signature Bluepea Lemongrass Pandan gelato flavour, or the “Little Nyonya” flavour, was one of the flavours that earned them recognition at the Singapore Gelato Championship 2019. If you like a herbal aftertaste, then you should definitely give it a try. We had a crowd favourite, milk and honey, which was simple but comforting. I liked that it was creamy without the heavy milk fat taste (which can be quite a turn-off), and paired harmoniously with the honey floral flavour. Also went for a comparatively light flavour, oolong osmanthus. A pleasant, full-bodied, toasted black tea flavour with a hint of floral fruitiness. Waffles here were soft and fluffy, though I would have preferred an additional crispiness. Pretty disappointing ice lemon tea that was strongly flavoured and diluted.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 waffles gelato set at the price of 1!

Housed in a refined white colonial building, @armourygastrobar is one good choice to chill your night away with their burgers and craft beers. While the chicken burger had 2 massive juicy pieces of chicken thigh and somewhat resembled the zinger burger, I wish the salted egg sauce was more creamy without that undesirable barnyard taste. Curry leaves, a crucial element of a salted egg sauce, were unfortunately missing. Served with melted cheese, lettuce and tomato.

Read mixed reviews of The Armoury Burger but what’s a trip without trying the classic? Sandwiched between the pillowy, buttery buns that we really enjoyed were double wagyu patties, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato. Although it was quite a sodium bomb, I liked that it was packed with flavours, especially the juicy medium-rare patties that also had slightly charred edges. All burgers are served with French fries. An additional top-up of $2 for a change to truffle fries, sweet potato fries, salad or onion rings. One thing for sure, whether it was sweet potato fries or French fries, their fries were ultra crispy.

One of my all-time favourite ice cream places, and a must-visit place in Bugis! Always looking forward to their rotating flavours because they never fail to disappoint. What’s more, with Burpple Beyond, 4 flavours for just $5!

Other than the usual white chocolate nori that never fails to amaze me with its unusual combination of sweet and briny flavours incorporated with white chocolate almond, we also had the triple coconut. Coconut lovers should not miss this coconut indulgence of coconut jelly, coconut flesh and coconut ice cream. You would be delighted to find the amount of coconut flesh hidden within!

Also had my first try on Pi Pa Gao and pineapple tarts flavours! The minty, herbal and less sweet pi pa gao ice cream was made using the Three Leg Brand’s Pi Pa Gao, mixed with ice cream custard. Something unusually comforting. Last but not least, the pineapple tarts flavour brought about some festive mood. According to the staff, they churn their own pineapple jam for this ice cream, and indeed, there were chunks of pineapple jam as well as the buttery tarts hidden in this flavour. Tropical, slightly sweet but it’s so unique that you just want to have it again.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, the feeling of enjoying one of my favourite ice cream at half price was even sweeter! As Tom’s palette is hunting for a new location, be sure to catch them at Shaw Towers before the end of March 2020!

How about skipping bubble tea for a day and try this healthy alternative at Honeymill? At Honeymill, there’s over 10 different concoctions, each with different character of its own, using various types of honey from Oceania, America or Europe.

Sweetness level is indicated for all drinks. We had the Manuka Mystic, of medium level of sweetness, with added basil seeds and aloe vera. One of the store’s favourite drinks, it also has lemon added for a refreshing citrusy touch.

Sparkling honey drinks made an interesting choice. We had the sparkling Goji Goji, made with garden honey from Europe and honey jelly, which was of a higher level of sweetness than the more well-known Manuka Honey. First sip of having a sparkling honey drink was intriguing, followed by the herbal element of wolfberries. Might not be something that you will fall in love with immediately, but a good choice if you are feeling adventurous.

At Honeymill, you also get to observe how your drink is made through automation with their in-store robot!

Delighted that the now-defunct Uncle Kiisu is back and rebranded to the 2-months old @babasan! With some items from the previous menu, there are also new ones that continue to illustrate their #ModSin, Peranakan-Japanese fusion identity.

As precise as what’s stated, Mentaiko-salmon wrapped in prata, maki-style. A memorable signature bite, which you would never imagine how the flavour comes through from the soft salmon wrapped within, as the maki slowly unfolds, revealing the prata to combine with the umami Mentaiko sauce drizzled on top. Tinge of briny, saltiness from the Ikura as they popped away.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 mains + 2 appetizers at the price of 1 each! There are also other awesome deals such as 1-for-1 dinner set that consists of an alcoholic drink!

Also tried the Spicy Crab Fried Rice, which surprisingly, wasn’t as spicy as the okonomiyaki omelette. Packed with heavy seafood flavours from crabmeat, scallops, and some dried Sakura shrimps. The dish was further elevated with an additional dimension from the spicy rempah, and dried chili. Would have been better with a stronger wok-hei.

Go for the must-try #modsin okonomiyaki omelette! Simple omelette made complex with generous amount of prawns, scallops hidden within. Perfect for sharing, but be warned of its spiciness from the sprinkled chopped chilies. Brilliant use of the chili to cut some starchiness and greasiness.

Perfect go-to snack station for fries lovers! Comes in a jumbo-sized cup, the shoe-string fries are freshly fried and dusted with a whole load of seasonings before they are served. A wide variety of flavours available such as cheese, barbecue, sour cream, and some special ones like the creamy truffle that we had.

While it can’t be compared to truffle oil, I must say it’s pretty representative of a truffle flavour with its earthiness and fortunately, not overly creamy. The other flavour that we had, Ranch O Cheddar, reminded me of the familiar childhood cheese snack, super ring; Cheesy, milky. However, the seasonings in general were a little too salty.

With #burpplebeyond, each jumbo cup costs only half of the original price with its usual portion, so why not! Easily a satisfying treat. However, the Jcube outlet had many houseflies which was quite disgusting to see when they were preparing food, so perhaps cleanliness should be something that they should look into.

This little shop tucked away on level 3 of lucky plaza has only 3 but relatively popular items on the menu, featuring mango-based desserts with homemade soft serves.

Between the 2 that we had, I preferred the Mango Halo Halo which consists of a classic mango soft serve, and a myriad of colorful toppings such as lychee jelly, coconut jelly, pearls, Nata de coco, lychee and mango pops, mango chunks and cheese bits! While the soft serve was really smooth and not overwhelmingly sweet, it felt a little weird to have bitten into cheese chunks in a sweet dessert. Nevertheless, the mango chunks were really sweet, and that’s credited to the use of real mangoes from Thailand without any artificial flavours and colourings. The owner taught us to add some condensed milk, to enjoy the dessert like how the Filipinos who would.

However, the Mango Graham Overload wasn’t my kind of thing. Perhaps more savoury, there was cheese and crushed graham crackers. The mango ice cream was still frozen and we kept biting into ice. I didn’t quite like the cheese chunks in it again, but I welcomed the sweet mango chunks. Got a little jelak at the end.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, each dessert with such generous amounts of toppings and portion l cost only $2.50! I can’t tell you how worthwhile it was, but I know it just got even sweeter.

Wouldn’t a cup of gelato milkshake be the perfect solution to the scorching hot weather right now? Choose between 1-3 flavours from Gelatissimo’s wide array of flavours to customise to your own liking! They have tags recommending the best way to enjoy each flavour; as a gelato, as a milk shake, as a fruit frappe etc.

Stubborn/Adventurous us decided to pair our own flavours. Bundaberg Ginger Beer, Australia’s favourite craft brewed ginger beer, with Espresso. Having a robust gingery flavour that exudes a spicy, aromatic element, the Bundaberg Ginger Beer flavour overpowered the slight bitter espresso flavour. Felt peculiar initially with a tinge of sourness, but it actually got refreshing.

We also paired the Pawsome Peanut Butter flavour with the Mocha In Black (hence the colour). A peanut butter gelato, the buttery and creamy notes were on point, with a pleasant roasted nuttiness. I preferred the Mocha in Black though, for its rich cocoa and coffee notes. Just as you might have guessed, the black colour comes from activated charcoal.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 gelato milkshakes at the price of 1! Surely, life tastes better with gelato! Join me by signing up for a 30% off premium Burpple Beyond membership and access 1-for-1 deals at over 500 curated restaurants!

Nestled within Oakwood Premier OUE and helmed by Executive Chef Dickson Fung, Se7enth offers contemporary dining in a classy ambience. A pleasant dining experience without any doubt.

As a vongole-lover, I was pretty much looking forward to the vongole pasta. While the al dente spaghetti was tossed with generous servings of clams and scallops in garlic, chili and white wine, I found it to be a tad dry. Taste of white wine was subtle, which would have been preferred if it was more evident. Nonetheless, the juicy scallops were a delight.

One other highlight was the pan-seared salmon. Again a thick slab of salmon fillet, served with a crispy skin and meat easily torn apart. Completing the dish were cream spinach, garlic mashed potatoes and sun-dried tomato béarnaise sauce. Creamy yet not overwhelming, with a myriad of flavours in the same dish. The garlic mashed potatoes particularly caught my attention for a fragrant aroma, while I enjoyed the sun-dried tomato for the intense sweet-tart flavour.
