The truffle fries ($12+) are a great option as you wind down after work! The portion is a tad small for its price, but this was my favourite bar bite. Found the truffle mayo redundant, but the fries themselves are crispy and exceedingly fragrant!

These are hands-down some of the best ang ku kueh ($0.90-$1 each) I’ve ever had! Each piece is massive and packed solid with filling. They have a wide variety to choose from and they are just the right level of sweetness! I liked yam and peanut the most, but my favourite part was definitely the chewy & pillowy soft skin!!

The croissant ($4) is really something to behold 😭 just look at how its many layers are evident, and so nicely rolled! The croissant’s crisp exterior flakes nicely, and its insides are filled with buttery layers. Such a sinful treat!

Mother Dough has been on my list of bakeries to try for the longest time! Snagged a few and they proved delightful. The banana walnut bread ($4) was a hefty slice, moist and packed with chopped nuts! The cookie ($3) was a crowd favourite - crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside and chock full of melted chocolate with a sprinkle of sea salt. I’d head back just for this!! Lastly, the rye fudge brownie ($5.50) was perhaps my least favourite of the lot - it was on the dry side and crumbly, lacking the rich flavour I’d expect from a fudge brownie.

Home baker Liz does a fudge rendition for her brownies ($13, 4”) - the base is moist and richly flavoured, further enhanced with rich chunks of chocolate within. The brownie is delicate balance of sweetness with a tinge of saltiness. Would have liked the top crust to be a little thicker and crispier!

Homebaker Liz has cookie jars available for order during her bake sales - her sea salt chocolate chip cookies ($12.90, 12 pieces) are one of the popular options! The cookies are chewy with a crisp exterior, with huge chunks of melted chocolate within. I found the salt flakes sprinkled on top a tad to heavy as the cookie itself already has a salty tinge! The cookies were certainly yummy, but I’m not sure they’re worth the premium of paying > $1 each.

One precious square of Pei Lin’s very magical brownies ($30 for a box of 12 squares)!! Watching her baking process at night always makes me salivate, and she definitely invests a lot into perfecting her recipes. Her brownies are made with premium dark chocolate, moist and fudgey with bittersweet chocolate chips and a crusty top. They melt in your mouth with none of that greasy aftertaste. Would have this every day if I could 🀀

Edith has been on my list of places to try for years, but I’ve always skipped it due to the absence of dine-in facilities. My generous friend gifted me with a box of hazelnut brownies ($9 for 6 squares) - finally an opportunity to try its highly raved bakes! The brownie is made with a rich chocolate, sweet with a tinge of bitterness. There is a hint of orange before the nutty flavour sets in. They recommend leaving it out for 30 min before consumption - best way for it to achieve a beautiful fudge consistency! Can’t wait to try their cakes and tarts 🌟

Of all that we tried, the mentaiko fries ($14.90++) stood out the most! Laden with mayo and topped with tobiko, the fries remained crispy. The truffle fries ($12.90++) were a bit stale and oily. Our other favourite was the buffalo wings ($14.90++) - a tangy, spiced sauce that leaves a burn down your throat.

This stall is never seen without a sneaking queue, and usually sells out by mid afternoon. Muffins are priced individually with a wide variety of flavours. Some of my favourites are the chocolate hazelnut and matcha streusel! Although flavourful, I find them a tad dry and expensive with toppings lacking.

Bread Yard is hands-down one of the best places for affordable bakes!! Their pistachio chocolate tart ($4.50) is my favourite - a buttery, crumbly crust encasing rich chocolate fudge. I could do with more pistachio (lends a hint of saltiness for dimension!) but no complaints for the price and ambience.

First time I’ve seen truffle fries ($14++) being made with curly fries! Loved the savoury crunchiness. Found the portion small for its price though, and the truffle flavour muted.
