Two Bakers @ Horne Road

I must admit I’m a pretty slow player in this game… the game of conquering the latest cafés in Singapore that is! So here I am at Two Bakers after hearing so much about it! They are famous for the pastries and desserts, but brunch is served here too. A simple and typical café interior,…

“Coffee-drinking Cat” Café @ Samcheongdong, Seoul

If you happen to be afraid of cats like myself, this is a reassurance that there’re no live furry animals in this café. On the other hand, if you’re cat lover, don’t go away just yet, ‘cos this is one café that is worth a visit. The inviting storefront stands out amongst the endless options at Samcheongdong, thanks to…

Happiness (CyACTbE) Café @ St. Petersburg [Russia Trip]

Russia has such a strong café culture that is not widely-known of, sadlya.

Today, I’ll be introducing the CyACTbE Café, which translates to…

Jamie’s Italian Singapore @ Vivocity

Jamie’s Italian has finally landed in Singapore after months of anticipation! After my dining experience at Jamie’s Italian in Oxford, I was more than delighted that his beautiful creations will be available locally.

PoTeaTo @ Yong Siak, Tiong Bahru

Occupying a tiny shopfront, with neighbours like Forty Hands and Open Door Policy, PoTeaTo differentiates itself with well, potatoes and teas (step aside, coffee). Be it fried, mashed, yellow potatoes, sweet potatoes, for lunch, brunch, high-tea or dinner, they have it all. I was here after my dinner at Big Mama for some post-dinner drinks as its neighbours…

Hoshino Coffee @ Plaza Singapura

Hoshino Coffee is definitely not new to everyone, but it has been serving consistently good and affordable Japanese pastas and desserts. I have been there on two separate occasions and boy, the queue is perpetually there during dinner-time. A meal at Hoshino Coffee definitely requires certain amount of patience as apart from the queue, their signature Pancake…

Ladurée @ Ngee Ann City

Ladurée, the French macaron house, has finally finally opened its doors in Singapore on Monday! The boutique is on Level 2 of Ngee Ann City while its take-away counter is (appropriately) tucked between LV and Chanel on Level 1. I would recommend going to the boutique on the second level for a complete, wonderful Ladurée experience!…
