As the name suggests, this sweets spot is known for their selection of aiyu-based and other traditional desserts. Refresh yourself with their best-selling Aiyu Jelly with Cocktail ($2.50), Aiyu Jelly with Aloe Vera ($2.50) and Qball Soursop with Cocktail ($3). For rainy day comforts, their Green Bean Soup ($1.80), Red Bean Soup ($1.80) and Cheng Tng ($2.20) comes in hot options.

@Teaapothecary.sg serves a wide variety of bubble teas and drinks with various toppings to go with them which are great for hot days like today (and most days). They have some unique flavours too! We had the following drinks all with 25% sugar.

My favourite was the Oolong Milk Tea with pearls. The tea wasn't too sweet and the pearls were slightly chewy too. The Lychee Milk Tea came with lychee jelly and had an interesting flavour that took some getting used to at first but it grew on me after a while. The Pineapple Red Tea was also quite unique though I couldn't really taste much pineapple but it was still pretty good. Cucumber Lemonade was refreshing just that it was too sweet for my liking so I would get it at 0% if I were to have it again.

They're on @burpple beyond so you can get 1 for 1 drinks here too!

Thank you @prsalon for the invite and @Teaapothecary.sg for all the drinks!

Thought it would be good to make the 127 Lorong 1 Toa Payoh Food Centre the first place to visit right after the official opening of the Thomson-East Coast Line, considering how the food centre is just a short walk away from Caldecott MRT Station.

Found ourselves reaching the market fairly early and thought it would be great to have an item that is great for breakfast — have seen a few articles that have featured Pure Soya Bean and decided to give them a go. Apart from the usual soya bean milk and beancurd, Pure Soya Bean also does carry some inventive versions such as a Chendol Soya Milk, as well as Kellogg’s Fruit Loops Beancurd.

Went for the Kellogg’s Blueberry with Almond Beancurd, since soy beancurd has always been more of a breakfast item to me and the addition of cereal/cornflakes was definitely in-tune with how we were there for breakfast. Whilst the usual soy beancurd here will come with sugar syrup (which is surprisingly balanced in terms of sweetness), the Kellogg’s Blueberry with Almond Beancurd comes without the sugar syrup; instead, the soy beancurd is topped with soy milk and then topped over with the Kellogg’s Blueberry with Almond cereal. There is no denying how this comes pretty comforting — the combination being pretty similar to milk with cereal with a slight switch-up of soy milk instead, while the house-made soy beancurd here comes so silken and soft; fits those who likes having soy beancurd, but would prefer to have it unsweetened, considering the only hints of sweetness comes from the cereal sprinkled atop.

It is always heartening to see entrepreneurs just like the ones behind Pure Soya Bean being part of the F&B scene in Singapore — folks that have the passion for the craft; folks who do not mind those long hours; and folks who constantly put in the effort to make their very own offerings by hand to achieve what they feel is their best product with a dash of modernity. With the convenience of the new Thomson-East Coast Line, perhaps Pure Soya Bean is a spot that I would revisit again for those days I am craving for a beancurd breakfast.

This drink was unfortunately watered down, lacking both the vinegar kick and tea notes. Added aiyu jelly to this as their tea jelly topping wasn’t available. Service wasn’t great ☹️

Maybe we ordered the wrong drinks, but both our Apple Vinegar Black Tea & Lychee Smoothie were disappointing. Topped up nata de coco for the Lychee Smoothie at $0.60. The drink was super sweet and a touch bit cloying. Would be better if they allowed a choice of sugar level for the amount of syrup used.

They do have a huge selection of drinks to choose from though, from classic milk teas, to lemonades, yakult teas, tea-free options etc.

Another stall with long queues and minimum 40 minutes waiting time. This stall sells carrot cake made by themselves. How can you tell? You will see bit of orangish carrots inside the fried carrot cake. Which factory made carrot cake still gives you real carrots instead of radish? Egg wise, normal. Not too generous but it’s there.

Word of advise - for those who do not like salty food, this is not for you. They use salty preserved turnip bits (Chye Poh) and because they are more generous with their Chye Poh, the dish is more salty than what I am used to. And do add the chilli because the plate with no chilli that I tried is inferior to the plate with chilli. Somehow the heat of the chilli sauce balances the saltiness of the Chye Poh. Also, do dine in there at the hawker center. The crispiness will be gone if you packet this for home consumption.

But I really wonder why the hype other than the fact the carrot cake contains real carrots. It’s good but not fantastic. Maybe I’ll come back and try it one more time just to be sure. Before I send it off to overhyped category.

A quaint bubble tea shop tucked away the heartlands of Toa Payoh Lorong 1, you'll be in for a surprise with their assorted toppings and smooth, rich teas. Burppler Girl & Boy ordered their signature Butter Milk Tea ($3.50) topped with Coffee Jelly ($0.60) and it "was so buttery and smooth. There is no other way to describe it!" If you're up for something different from your standard bubble tea offerings, their "Orh Nee" Taro Milk Tea ($3.50), Chai Latte ($3.50) paired with Tea Jelly ($0.80) and Horlick Biscuit Smoothie ($3.50) might have you coming back for more.

Ordered the Tonkotsu Ramen ($6.90). The Ramen is “Q” in texture. The broth is thick and filled with Collegen, simply put: On Point. For the char siew, the size was decent, not too thin. However as with most reviews, the char siew was tasteless. Overall, for the price, the portion and the broth was pretty value for the money.

Hokkien Mee (S$5.90)

Ordered through @tabaojiak with S$5 delivery fee and minimum order of a drink

Kind of cold when arrived but at least one don’t have to wait for an hour to queue for food

Oh, so affordable and decent! Not the best hawker muffin (AJ’s got my heart! ❤️) but close to the best. Perhaps because of the tiny base, it got a lil’ dry and hard. The iconic squarish base was huge and disproportionate to the teeny base, a tad too ‘crispy’ and dry for my liking

This bubble tea shop hidden away in a HDB estate of Toa Payoh is amazing!!! The prices are a bit steep for an indie bubble tea shop, and the packaging isn't the best; but don't be fooled by the unaesthetic milk tea! The shop decor is quaint and cute, and the tea is really good. Boy and I went back within a week to get it again even though we don't exactly live within the vicinity. We also have this shop to thank for in discovering the wonders of coffee jelly (instead of pearls) as a topping. It is worth noting that their bubble tea comes in 3 sizes, but the "M" size pictured is relatively large.

Boy: Butter Milk Tea (M) with Coffee Jelly ($4.80 + $0.60) in 0% sugar. Tea was so buttery and smooth. There is no other way to describe it! Only thing that it's a bit on the sweet side even on 0% sugar and might get a bit jelat after awhile. That said, it's a perfect combo with the coffee jelly and a must-try. Coffee Jelly is crunchy like konjac jelly which I'm not usually a fan of, but was delicious in this context.

Girl: Lychee Milk Tea (M) with Tea Jelly ($4.60 + $0.80) in 0% sugar. I was expecting the usual lychee tea flavor, but this was surprisingly good! They do their Lychee Tea strong and extremely flavorful, and it's still sweet at 0%. I paired this with their Tea Jelly and it was great! A nice change to the usual grass jelly served at other shops.

Both the drinks above were part of their recommendations, which I must say are well-pointed out so maybe look out for those on the menu. The drinks are a bit on the pricier side but with Beyond is a very nice deal!

Service: 5/10
Drinks: 9/10 (not 10 only because it's on the sweeter side which may not be ideal for health conscious peeps)
Ambience: 8/10 (cute shop!)
Price: 3/10
