Super worth with Burpple beyond. Pasta portions were on the smaller side but the taste makes up for it. Pizzas were amazing esp Burrata and the portion size made up for the smaller pastas too.

I liked the macarons here. They’re not overwhelmingly sweet and each macaron captured their individual flavours quite well.

What stood out for me, personally, was the Salted Egg Yolk x Curry macaron. Who knew you could have this in a macaron - and M plot did it really well. It seemed a little weird when I first saw it on display, but I’m glad I was adventurous enough to give it a try - because I was pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed the salty creamy egg yolk accompanied by the curry spice flavours. I probably couldn’t eat very much of it, but it was fun to try.

We visited this cafe on an early Saturday morning and it was easy to get a seat for two. There’s a seating area on the second floor with a nice view.

The hot chocolate was good. The caramel latte could do with more caramel, as it tasted like a flat white, which is honestly fine as well as it tasted nice. Both drinks were pretty standard.

We enjoyed our hot drinks in the comfort of the second floor of a cozy little cafe, overlooking the roads.

We got this as part of the Pastry + Coffee deal - you can pick any drink from the Coffee section of the menu. As for the pastries, you can choose between carrot cake, brownie, or quiche. We paid a total of $13.20 for 2 pastries and 2 cups of coffee.

Yeast Side bakes their own sourdough loaves - when we got there at about 11.30am, they were only left with the seeded ones. The sourdough was moist and had a nice balance of nutty and sour. It was really tasty and I could eat it on its own.

The loaves were quite big but they don’t slice them for you. I wish they did, because not everyone has a bread knife at home, and cutting through the loaf is quite tough.

It’s quite a good deal with Beyond 1-for-1, making one loaf $5 each - I would definitely get this again.

Burpple advertised a 1-for-1 Pastry and Coffee set at Yeast Side. When I got there, I was told that this offer is only available on Friday to Sunday. No where was this stated on Burpple. It’s either Burpple left this out or Yeast Side has changed the deal without updating Burpple. Whatever the case, call before you make your trip to the outlet to check if the deal is available on the day you intend to patronize this outlet.

Just a stone's throw away from King Albert Park MRT, you'll find this alfresco bistro & bakery housed in KAP mall. Full of chill vibes and good bites, pop on by for a cuppa coffee, pastries and signature Sourdough Loaf ($9) freshly baked every monrning! Some of their crowd favourites include the Carrot Cake ($6), which was "pretty yummy, perfect if you prefer the less-sweet type of cakes with a stronger taste of spice. It was moist and light, not the dense kind, which was great for a tea snack." according to Burppler Audrey & Cady.

And now, it’s time for the grand finale to the sublime symphony of flavours that is @linorestaurant $28++ three-course set lunch. I know, an earl grey tea cake is as out of place in an Italian ristorante as I would be in a room of teetotallers.⠀

That doesn’t change the fact that it’s a rather comely cake, with the pleasant pungency of the floral, fragrant earl grey tea fully flavouring & adding a vivacious vibrancy to the muted sweetness of the cake. However, the cake is a bit uneven. It was pleasingly moist for the most part, but there were some internal bits that were quite dry and kind of grainy. ⠀

Fortunately, it wasn’t an often enough occurrence to dampen my enjoyment of the cake. Besides, there’s a bountiful dollop of light whipped cream on the side. And yes, it takes this already captivating cake a whole level up with the light as air creaminess.⠀

A fitting finale to a most mellow meal in my books. Plus, housepour wines are $10++ all day every day. Bargains this good got me asking if this is the real life, or if it’s just fantasy. And if this only exists in my dreams, don’t wake me up.

Carrot cake was pretty yummy, perfect if you prefer the less-sweet type of cakes with a stronger taste of spice. It was moist and light, not the dense kind, which was great for a tea snack.

The cafe has an outdoor seating area and a cozy indoors one on the second floor. Great if you’re looking for somewhere quiet and want to drop by for a light bite and coffee.

We got this as part of the Pastry + Coffee deal. They told us that for pastries, we could pick from their quiche, carrot cake and brownie. And as for the coffee - it’s any of the drinks from the coffee category. We paid a total of $13.20 for 2 pastries and 2 cups of coffee.

The slice of quiche was not too bad, I quite liked the little pieces of pumpkin inside. It was quite light and tasted really healthy - it’s probably up your alley if you dislike the typical salty & heavy quiches.

@linorestaurant Lamb Ragu Garganelli (additional $3 to the $28++ 3 course set lunch) is a remarkably rich dish that’s a little more complex than its homely presentation would suggest. Besides the hearty tomato ragu that has chunks of fork tender lamb as its meat base, there’s an overwhelming abundance of garganelli pasta and some eggplant caviar somewhere in that pasta.⠀

The sauce base was a little more on the sour side, which may have been an attempt to mask the natural gaminess of the lamb. It worked, but Lino may have overdone it al little with the sourness. There’s still a bit of that powerful flavour lingering around to remind you that you’re still eating lamb, but the muskiness is muted. Still, if you’re really finicky about that, you might wanna give this a miss. One improvement that could be made is to portion more lamb into the pasta, so you don’t end up in a situation where you plough through nothing but pasta. It’s not a bad thing when the garganelli is cooked to perfection, but it can get pretty monotonous real quick.

I’m not sure what the eggplant caviar does for this dish, but it was lost on me. Still, there’s zero doubt that this plate of al dente (hopefully housemade) garganelli pasta was absolutely ambrosial with the redolent ragu. Its tubular, rigatoni like structure traps more sauce than any other pasta would, and that’s just plain genius. The lavish shaving of parmesan cheese on top adds a mildly milky & sexily stretchy segment to the rich pasta. Seriously, who doesn’t love cheese?⠀

Trust me fam, this plate of pasta doesn’t look or sound particularly appealing, but you gotta try this at least twice. Better yet, wash it down with a $10++ glass of housepour red wine. Yep, it’s $10++ at happy hour, which just so happens to be all day every day. Noice.

If the week could start as pleasantly as every lunch does at @linorestaurant when you order the porchetta, ain’t nobody would be bitching about #mondayblues. Lino is the classier, more refined older brother of the casual & fun @linoppbar, but both have stunning steals for set lunches. I’ve covered @linoppbar ridiculously value for money $20 set lunch before, and @linorestaurant 3 course set lunch is only eight bucks more expensive.⠀

Yes, I know, this does NOT look like porchetta at all. That’s what I thought too when the waiter first placed it at my table. It looks a lot more like shaved ham, doesn’t it? Where are the crispy cracklings that everyone desires & expects from porchetta? Look, it might not be porchetta per se, but it is most definitely delicious. The shaved pork is smoky & scintillatingly salty, and is everything you’d ever want in a palatable pork dish. The surprise stunner here is actually the julienned apple that’s amply dressed in a very addictive apple & celeriac remoulade.⠀

The apple is sweet & crunchy, while the remoulade is creamy, slightly sour & a little peppery from the celeriac, which revolutionised the admittedly one dimensional salty porchetta. The competently compiled flavours & textures united to form an exquisitely executed appetiser. This is guaranteed to get your salivary glands going hard and you all fired up for the rest of your stellar set lunch.
