1. 𝗟𝘂𝗹𝗮𝗺𝗼𝗻($13) - 10/10 ♥ Perfect ♥
- Finally got to try this vegan version available specifically at the TP branch. Consisting of cashew hummus, spiced cauliflower, onions, lotus chips and avocado in a sesame bagel, this vegan (bae)gel right here is really INSANELY MINDBLOWLINGLY GOOD. That perfect harmonisation of different textures and flavours is really out of the world!
- The flavourful, slightly sweet silk-smooth creamy hummus together with savoury, slight spicy well-marinated roasted crunchy cauliflower, crispness of the lotus chips, natural sweetness and subtle onion astringency and luscious rich, buttery fresh avocado was a divine combination that touched my heart. I really don’t know how to emphasised how impressed and touched i felt eating this bagel. It felt super hearty and multi-dimensional. Everything really came together perfectly. Definitely isn’t the common eggs, bacon, meaty bagels. This combination may not be the one for everyone (especially for meat lovers) but i certainly found my perfect one.
- Special shoutout to Sam who recommended me to get the sesame bagel instead of cinnamon raisin because the hummus is one the sweet side already so a savoury bagel would be better. Love the friendliness and upbeat-ness of the TMBH team!

2. 𝗛𝗮𝘄𝘁 𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗲𝗸𝘀 + 𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗮𝗺𝗯𝗹𝗲𝗱 𝗲𝗴𝗴 ($15) - 8.5/10
- Hawt cheeks consists of chicken thigh, chilli, kewpie, hippie greens & bacon and we had it with the garlic bagel. This was really satisfying and the combination of juicy chicken thigh and scrambled egg works really well.

As previously reviewed,

MUST GO😊 i really recommend to try and play around with different combinations to find that perfect (BAE)gel.

-I really love this vegan dark chocolate icecream because the distinctive cocoa flavour, very subtle sweetness (probably 3/10) and the coconut profile was subtle so it didn’t overpower the chocolate. Love that it remained icy cold throughout and didn’t melted too fast while i took photos~
-Shoutout to their 𝕭𝖑𝖆𝖈𝖐𝖋𝖔𝖗𝖊𝖘𝖙 𝖌𝖗𝖆𝖓𝖔𝖑𝖆! The base of the is essentially their signature dark chocolate granola with dried cranberries and walnuts! I love how the walnuts added adds another texture to the granola and it tasted really fresh. Personally, i really love walnuts because of the firmeness and bitter notes complements really well with sweeter flavours.

A chat with the founders of @theoatberry made me delighted to hear that that they no longer use xantham gum (food additives to stabilise/bind food and improve the flavour + mouthfeel but may create digestive issues) in their granola bakes and are working with nutritionists to refine their recipes to make it nutritious and delicious. This news really made my day and yeah it got me really happy as to how they constantly seek to uphold their vision of creating clean, honest and nutritious, yet undeniably delicious food. I really feel that their efforts to continuously improve and perfect their formula (achieving that desirable level of sweetness and crunch) is really truly inspirational. Though the changed in recipe resulted in slight dryness to their granola texture, on the bright side its more crisps and definitely healthier~

Thanks for that macadamia drizzle😍😍loving that nutty savoury taste.



Thank you mum for participating in the giveaway because she knows how much i adore oatberry's healthy and yummy granola😋 and super blessed that my mum won the giveaway🙆‍♀😍❤ thankful to oatberry for this generousity.

We tried their new Valentines day menu:
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝗵𝗼𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗮𝗰𝗮𝗶 𝗯𝗼𝘄𝗹~
-consisting of Cacao infused acai blend with dark choco chips, vegan marshmellows (which i asked to be omited), strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, creamy coconut chia pudding and drizzled with luxurious macademia butter that added a nice savoury touch~ and of course it was topped with their signature oatberry granola: dark choco flavoured
-The dark cocoa infused acai blend has prominent cocoa flavour that overpowered the tanginess of acai berries. The banana profile was very distinct too. As a person who love the sour accent of acai berries and that very slight chocolatey aftertaste, i find the banana flavour a little too overpowering (not really a fan of banana soooo 😅). The acai blend was also a little too sweet for me (i have low sugar tolerance and would probs rate the sweetness 6.5-7/10). However, those who love chocolate and banana combi would surely love this!!
- Loving the 𝕯𝖆𝖗𝖐 𝖈𝖍𝖔𝖈𝖔𝖑𝖆𝖙𝖊 𝖌𝖗𝖆𝖓𝖔𝖑𝖆 as well as all the toppings that accompanied this bowl. Their dark chocolate granola really has rich cocoa flavour and is the least sweet flavour. Totally would recommend this to chocolate lovers! I really can’t emphasise on how much i love their granola!! Its really the healthiest yet SUPER DELICIOUS version that i can find in SG

The service here is really good!! They are so nice and friendly! Thanks for changing out the banana on my bowl to passion fruit because I aint a fan of banana and asking me beforehand if i was okay that their acai blend contains banana.😊 ♥ To be continued ♥

They serve different menu for their lunch and dinner service. During lunch, they serve authentic hearty Japanese set lunches at an affordable price (mostly under $20) while for dinner, they adopt an izakaya style.

As we went during lunch time, we got to try set lunches.

1) Ochazuke set ($7.80) - 7.5/10
-Rice porridge (with added salmon/picked plum/mentaiko), 3 kinds of oden (fishcake, tofu and daikon radish) and pickles
-The clear dashi broth that soaked the pearly short-grain Japanese rice was light, umami and savoury but not overly salty. Mixing in the wasabi brought an extra spicy kick. The fishcake remains me of my exchange days in Korea as the texture is very similar to korean odeng/eomuk - firm yet having a nice soft slight chewy bite. My favourite item in the oden would definitely be the tofu! I love how the interior is slightly firm and silky while the exterior has this chewy tau kwa skin texture. I really love this dish as it tasted really light, refreshing and hearty. It would definitely be my go-to-meal after a long and tiring day as it certainly rejuvenates the body and mind. Though the portion looks light and small, it is actually pretty filling.

2) Unagi bento ($12.80) - 7/10
- Pearly japanese rice topped with unagi, oden, chicken karaage, mini-salad and pickles.
- The portion of the unagi was decent given its price. Not doubt the unagi quality isn’t as good as unagi specialty stores like Man-man unagi/Unagiya ichiinoji, it certainly tasted better than those frozen unagi). Though most of the ingredients in this bowl tasted pretty average, we would recommend this too given the overall combination and price affordability.

Would be back to try other set lunches like the shabu-shabu beef/pork don set ($9.80).
I really love their set lunches that tasted really thoughtful, heart and comforting akin to home-cooked style food.

Taste: 3.5/5
Worth it: 4.5/5 (It is possibly one of the most value-for-money Japanese cuisine places in town; wallet-friendly and with quality)
Overall: 8/10

Besides offering freshly baked granola, they also offer:
1)Açai bowls
2)Quick bowls (milk - dairy, soy, macadamia or oat/Greek yogurt/Vegan-friendly coconut milk ice cream - coconut or dark choco) that are topped with fresh fruits, nuts, chia seed pudding and of course their granola
3)Healthy fruity smoothie

I have previously reviewed about their açai bowls, checkout #jylovesoatberry for detailed review.

This time, we tried their quick bowls:
1) Vanilla Bean greek yogurt, topped with maple pecan granola, chia pudding, mango, strawberry and blackberries.
2) Dark chocolate vegan ice cream, topped withdraw chocolate oats, mango, pumpkin seeds, chia pudding and macadamia drizzle.
▪️The greek yogurt was thick, rich and creamy with a nice vanilla aroma and was mildly sweetened (Sweetness level: 3.5/10). PS. they use farmer’s union brand. But i kind of prefer original unsweetened version (I am very basic HAHA) hehe
▪️Special shoutout to their dark chocolate icecream which had a good bittersweet level (Sweetness level: 3.5-4/10). As a fan of really high cocoa bitter dark chocolate, I personally wished that it could be more gao and bitter. However, I am glad that their dark choco wasn’t too sweet or milky.
▪️Their fruits and nuts toppings cost $1 per topping, Hoping they could be abit more generous with the quantity of the toppings especially the fruits!! ($1 for 1 strawberry abit ex??)
▪️I like their macadamia butter which is something i can’t find elsewhere.

As previously reviewed:
▫️Taste: 4/5
▫️Worth it: 3.5/5 (hoping they could be more generous with the additional $1 per fruit toppings)
▫️Overall: 7.5/10
▫️Service: The staff was really really friendly and nice😊👍 feels super welcoming and really thankful for answering my questions about the sweetness level😅 i am quite cautious when it comes to sweetness

Their granola is really mildly sweetened so I find the sweetness level really good (P.S my sweetness tolerance is really really low). Baked fresh locally and in small batches, their vegan and allergy-friendly delicious granola tastes super fresh and fragrant with a nutty/toasty oats aroma.
✓Peanut free
✓No refined sugars

I love how they have a great range of flavours available, from simple hearty original version to chocolatey flavours (double choco, dark choco), fruitylicious flavours (very berry, black forest, cinnamon apple) and even nutty ones (maple pecan, cashew red date & goji). Bought their cashew red date goji and dark chocolate this time round. Hoping to try more flavours soon!! Hearsay their maple pecan is the most popular flavour~

Okay so i used the phrase healthIER because their granola isn’t really the healthiest since they contain maltodextrin, xanthem gum BUT its in a very little amount. Most supermarket ones are incredibly sugar-laden and have unnecessarily high amounts of addicts, preservatives and sodium. Thus, its really a good healthy option available in Singapore to satisfy your breakfast granola cravings~ For really healthy ones, I recommend to try homemaking ^^ Although it takes time, you can customise and tailor the taste to suit your liking. But if you have really too little time to spare and crave for good healthy granola, then i really recommend @theoatberry.

Its really the least sweetened version I could find and its not super jelat or cloying... really so so so good, brimming with earthy aromatic red bean filling❤ Checkout #jylovesjustdough for detailed reviews. My ultimate fav for exisiting flavours would still be yam~

Missing their salted egg pumpkin and tapioca which they have stopped production.

Previously reviewed on the red yeast wine mee sua and green curry rice #jylovesvegepot On my quest to find the best thunder tea rice in Singapore and so i decided to head down to Vege pot to give their thunder rice tea a try😊

1) Thunder tea rice TTR ($6.50) - 8/10
-Consists of brown rice (quite well flavoured with mushroom seasoning), topped with long beans, braised tofu, cabbage, carrots, chickpea, sayur manis and preserved raddish (chye poh); served the the thunder tea soup~
-Their thunder tea soup was browner than usual. Personally i felt that the brasil and mint that was prominent but not strong in terms of depth. It was on the savoury side and I felt that its too salty to drink it on its own. However, if you mixed it with the rice and the vegetables, the harmonisation between all the elements was insanely perfect and very hearty! It felt like an homecooked meal filled with warmth and really reminded me of my childhood meal where i mixed everything when my mum cooked 三菜一汤 together. Special shoutout to the braised tofu that is really aromatic
-Their thunder tea rice is really different from the usual!! It tastes really more healthy and clean; feeling more like mixed vegetables and rice with soup. If you are looking for something more healthy and willing to try a different type of TTR, i really recommend this. Its not the best that i have ever tried because the ingredients used is quite different from the usual "traditional" version but its definitely the best unique TTR I've tried and topped the spot in terms of homey and hearty feels. THANKS FOR BRINGING BACK MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES❤

2) Claypot Sambal fish rice ($6.90) - 6/10
-Their sambal was really flavourful and tasted similar to assam minus the sourness. The spices was really distinct and fragrant.

Taste: 3.5/5
Worth it: 3/5 (quite pricey but its homey)
Overall: 6.5/10

𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐲𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐁𝐢𝐠 𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐤𝐟𝐚𝐬𝐭 ($18) - 6/10
-Two eggs of any style, salsicca pork sausage, bacon, enoki and button mushrooms, mango salsa, romaine salad, croissant, salted butter.
σνєяαℓℓ: Again, there wasn’t any mind-blowing factor here and tasted slightly above average. The scrambled egg wasnt overly cooked and all the elements really went well with one another.

P.S They have 50% eatigo discounts from 4,30pm to 5.30pm~!! Super worth it with the discount. And they are on burpplebeyond too! ✿Overall taste: 3.5/5 -Above average grain-bowls that tastes hearty and healthy
-Probably can also try their sandwiches or other brunch items (because IMO the big breakfast wasnt really that amazing to justify its price)
✿Worth it: 3.5/5 (4.5/5 With eatigo discount!!! Where can you get such a nice hearty filling grain bowls at

Made with plenty of Uji matcha powder (as seen from the dark green intensity) and fresh cream, the dense baum is shaped to mimic a bamboo stalk. This is definitely the best baumkuchen I have ever eaten and I am sure that once you’ve tried this, you wouldn’t be satisfied with commercial mediocre baumkuchen. The matcha flavour is really prominent right here, packed with vegetal astringency and fragrant earthy umami notes~ I was really impressed by the very mild sweetness level and hence you can really taste the bittersweetness of the matcha, with a satisfying lingering bitter undertone. Though some might find the baum a little too dense, I really love the texture and like how it isn’t overly dry nor greasy.

Matcha Distinctiveness: 10/10
Matcha Intensity: 9/10
Sweetness level: 2/10 (YASS, not overly sweet)
Overall: 9.5/10

PS. Due to the high intensity of the matcha flavour and the density of the cake, I recommend to cut it into small slices and slowly indulge ~ Place it in the fridge to last longer or keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months 👍🏻🌟 yums

#jylovestsujiriheihonten #matchaYIN #tsujiriheihonten #辻利兵衛本店 #burpple

However, needless to say, Tsujihei’s hojicha is still the best hojicha-flavoured softserve I’ve ever eaten. The hojicha flavour profile was really distinctive and concentrated. I love how it has a rich lingering roasted nutty aromatic undertone that complemented perfectly with the earthiness~ personally feel this flavour would suit those who have sweeter those and are not that hardcore.
-Once again, the matcha roll cake is definitely my favourite to-go topping to pair with the the rich, thick and creamy softserve. Really love the soft fluffy roll cake texture and luscious matcha cream that filled the core; with distinctive earthy unami matcha flavour. I strongly recommend to add the matcha roll cake as a topping even though the portion felt a bit small for $5. The taste is really worth it especially if you are a matchaholic. This matcha roll cake is a really a very good alternative while i await for @dairyandcream bake sales. Personally preferring and loving her roll cakes more (especially the genmaicha flavour <3 OMG) - i find her sponge cake more moist, soft and fluffy + the fresh cream & custard cream that she makes are always very light, minimally sweetened and simply insanely delicious.

Definitely a MUST GO as previously reviewed: #JYlovestsujiriheihonten

Missing this soooo much~
