The most prominent and authentic ones are probably Ah Chew Desserts, Mei Heong Yuen Dessert, Ji De Chi, and Dessert First.

When I learnt about Jin Yu Man Tang Dessert Shop 金玉满堂甜品 at East Coast, I think it has the potential to be a hit with families.

Perhaps its location, lack of marketing and visibility cause it to be off-the-radar, but this should pick up really soon.

It is fair enough to say that Mango Sago Pomelo ($5.00) aka ”Yang Zhi Gan Lu” is one of Singapore’s favourite Chinese-style dessert.

Their version came with grapefruit pulp, which provides that slightly-bitter and tart taste which complemented the sweet, fresh mangoes.


After coming to Serangoon Gardens a couple of times to see this stall closed, I am in luck.
While the dry Bak Chor Mee was more ordinary, it was really the soup ($11/$13) version that people enjoy more. Flavourful with the slight tinge of bitterness coming from dry sole fish.
The fish maw, cooked soft and till it absorbed quite a bit of the flavours, was the highlight.
Which is your favourite soupy Bak Chor Mee in Singapore? #DFDHawker #DFDNoodles

The new 116-seater SORA at Terminal 1 features classic favourites and exclusive dishes from three renowned Japanese restaurants: Ikkousha (ramen), Yoshimi (tonkatsu and curry) and Megumi Maru (maze don). If you value the convenience of getting some Yatai-style ramen, katsu curry and maze don, all in one place, then you’ll love the concept of SORA.

Plus, you have easy access to wonderful desserts like Hokkaido soft-serve ice cream and pancakes to mellow those sweet cravings.




Who doesn’t love a good dumpling?
The Chinese couple running this stall makes thousands of delicious XLBs on a daily basis. The dumplings are only $0.60 per piece and have generous fillings of tasty and broth which is on the sweetish side. Add some vinegar and chilli for a better experience.

You could also enjoy their Szechuan style Spicy Wantons ($5 for 10 pieces) and Pan-Fried Dumplings aka Guo Tie ($6 for 10 pieces). The Guo Tie had crisp outer layer and was very meaty, but I wished it was juicier on the inside.



Here at Tiong Bahru Food Centre (there are 2 famous stalls here). Lor Mee 178’s signature Lor Mee ($3.00) is a bowl of thick, flat yellow noodles in viscous gravy (the lor). Unlike the ones in other Lor Mees, its flavourful gravy is not too starchy and has a good consistency to it. You could finish slurping a bowl without feeling too full.

Most people would add the crispy Shark Nuggets (not fins, don’t have to get overly triggered) for an additional dollar.

%Arabica which first announced its opening in Singapore last August 2018, may finally open at 56 Arab Street next week.

The coffee place is designed in minimalist white - I like.

It faced many delays due to construction and interior works.

The chain has also announced locations of its two other Singapore locations – Chip Bee Gardens at Holland Village, and [email protected]

Looking forward to have my first iced latte there, though long queues will be expected.


They only allow one roll per customer in JEWEL though.

The queue is relatively long due to the crowd who descended to Jewel Changi Airport, and supply (”this flavour don’t have, that one sold out”) seems to be short as the Swiss Rolls are quickly snapped up by late afternoon.

Had the Red Velvet roll as I wanted to try something different, and it was not bad, moist yet quite airy.


For the daily buffet dinners from the 4th to 28th of June 2019, the Ellenborough Market Cafe’s culinary team will prepare an abundant array of crab creations for all types of crab lovers.

With different varieties of crabs available on a rotational basis, you can expect the likes of Chilli Crab, Black Pepper Crab, Szechuan Spicy Crab, Thai Yellow Curry Flower Crab, Boiling Crab Shabang, and Sambal Flower Crab – these are all fiery flavours that you can enjoy.

For savoury options, you could have their Sweet Flour Crab, Salted Egg Crab, and Braised Crab with Bee Hoon.
