I wasn't so keen on this $6.20 cup of cold brew as I felt it was way too acidic. I believe this was brewed with El Salvador beans if I remember correctly, and while I appreciated that delicious crisp nutty flavor that comes from Latin American beans, it wasn't smooth like I expected cold brew to be.

Perhaps a dash of milk might have helped with that acidity. Still, it was refreshing and enjoyable, and very worth it since Jewel Coffee runs in-house 1-for-1 promos from time to time.

PS. They don't have straws here. Was mildly irritated by that fact. Was on the way to lecture and didn't want to risk an uncovered drink splashing around.

Chili Padi Nonya Cafe 03/08/19

Overall, I would concur that this buffet is somewhat worth its money for the VARIETY offered. However, it is definitely not worth one's calories in terms of the quality of food presented. If this food was presented as part of a buffet catering service, I would be pleasantly surprised but considering that its a buffet restaurant instead, I expected a lot more. Many of the dishes really did not taste fresh, especially their fruit cakes and kueh lapis at the dessert section. Would strongly recommend the restaurant to improve on the quality of all of their dishes first before working on the variety.
Price: 7/10 (For the variety)
Taste: 3/10 (I was craving for quality Peranakan food the next day)
Overall: 4/10 (Even if you are in the area, I will not recommend)

Super rich and decadent brownie!!! This is every chocolate lover’s dream 🤗 The sea salt caramel bits are hiding in the brownie and it goes like ‘surprise!’ when you least expect it. It’s not that big but still good to share with a friend because of how fudgey it is

Mooncake season is upon us and Starbucks has launched a handful of mini mooncakes that can be purchased individually or in a box. Out of the flavours available, the Honey Earl Grey seemed the most innovative and unique. It’s quite pricey at $5 for a small mooncake, but it’s 1) Starbucks and 2) mooncake festival, so 🤷‍♀️

Upon cutting into the mooncake, we found it was really sticky inside. I suggest taking the mooncake out of the plastic base to cut so you can get clean slices. Now this mooncake is really fragrant. The Earl Grey aroma hits you early and is so enticing, we almost forgot to take a bite. It’s the middle portion of the mooncake that’s really concentrated with Earl Grey, and it goes so well with the rest of the sweet lotus paste. Overall, this mooncake was delicious, and I think it’d make a good gift for friends and family, but probably not something I’d buy for myself at this price point.

Keeping up with a coffee a day when the afternoon slump hits. The 1-for-1 drinks promotion from Monday-Friday, 3-5pm is still on for the week but they seem to be perpetually out of skim milk so I got the soy milk. I loved the Brazil roast yesterday, but they’ve already changed the beans and it was a choice of Ethiopia or El Salvador. This was with the El Salvador and I didn’t really enjoy it. It’s got a slightly sourish and mostly bitter taste profile, with little to no fruitiness or chocolate taste. Will steer clear of these next time and keep my fingers crossed for Brazil beans.

Another one for one promotion from 3-5pm this week at Jewel Coffee. Unfortunately they were out of skim milk, so I topped up $1 for soy. I went with the Brazil roast, and felt that this was actually the best drink I’ve had at Jewel so far.

With the Brazil roast, my cappuccino had a chocolatey flavour with a nutty finish. Hmm. Bit expensive for 8oz, but not too bad if you have a coffee kaki during the 1-for-1 promo.

Cafes that sell pizzas are the real MVP.
