Lady M Confections @ Orchard Central

I was on my way to the spa some weeks back when I spotted Lady M at Orchard Central and just had to come back for a pampering pre-dinner treat. If you have a sweet tooth, you’re probably already very familiar with the brand. Hailing from New York, Lady M is often known as the […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Squares Recipe

The husband and I decided to stay home today to clear some work before our staycation & food hopping trip next week. And I felt inspired to bake something so we could have something to munch on for tea. With a bunch of bananas and a pack of chocolate chips left in my pantry, I was able […]

Rive Gauche Patisserie (Revisited)

This is the third time I am reviewing Rive Gauche because it’s really one of the few patisseries in Singapore that I go to frequently for my sugar fix. Read my previous review here. This time round, the husband brought home these two delightful treats to cheer me up as I was feeling a little […]

Rive Gauche Patisserie @ Takashimaya

The moment I set my eyes on the Napoleon a few years ago, Rive Gauche (pronounced as ‘Reeve Go-sshh’ in French) has become my go-to patisserie for this French classic mille-feuille pastry. It has never failed me to date whenever I need that occasional sweet treat to reward myself. French puff pastry with soft, moist […]

Crodos (Croissant Donut Hybrid) from Da Paolo Gastronomia @ Great World City

If you could have the best of both worlds, what would it be? How about a croissant-cum-doughnut? Or a Crodo? This unique pastry first came to light in the US this year and is famously known as the ‘Cronut’ whose name has been trademarked by its original creator, Dominique Ansel Bakery, both in the US and worldwide. In […]

Lemon Shortbread Recipe

Shortbread makes a good snack with a hot cup of tea. And a lemon flavoured one gives a citrus punch to the crumbly cookie, making it taste refreshingly light. My father loves his traditional Scottish shortbread but enjoys these home-made lemony ones just as much. Lemon Shortbread Recipe Ingredients (makes approx. 8 wedges) 150g plain […]

Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting & Seasonal Berries Recipe

For my husband’s birthday, I decided to bake him a red velvet cake which is considered my first attempt at professional cake decorating. It is also the first patisserie-standard choice of cake I ever considered making. It is a big risk because I’m no expert in baking so anything could go wrong. Normally I only […]

Dessert Hut 甜品小屋 – Traditional Tong Shui

I used to think of Chinese traditional desserts as plain sugary soups with (possibly) miserable portions of ingredients (I’m not kidding – have you ever tried red bean or green bean soup that’s full of water but so little beans?) until I chanced upon Dessert Hut in Chinatown one day while out shopping with my […]

Lao Ban Soya Beancurd 老伴豆花

Original flavour ($1.50 each) A colleague recently recommended me to Lao Ban Soya Beancurd when we headed to Old Airport Road Market and one taste of the beancurd completely changed my mindset about what this dessert is all about. Needless to say, I had been thinking of this since the last time I had it […]

Spruce Restaurant | Bar | Bakery

Sunday is best spent with a good brunch coupled with a laid-back and tranquil setting. Given Singapore is such a concrete jungle, it is rather rare to find a place that fits the bill. I first heard of Spruce from a colleague and decided to head over for a lazy weekend brunch with my good […]

Chef Icon – Most Amazing Chocolate Cake Ever!

My colleague recommended me Chef Icon after she had her most amazing chocolate cake from there for her birthday. When I first visited the website, it wasn’t really that eye-catchy and I was doubting if it was worth an order. After reading everything on its Avina.Neutro Baking style (no animal rennet, no animal gelatin, no […]

Ikea Meatballs and Chicken Wings Galore

Fancy travelling from one end of SG to another end just for a meal? That’s probably what we are starting to do at least 1-2 times a month. And Ikea is somewhere we visit rather frequently (despite always leaving the place empty handed – but tummy full!). Seafood Chowder ($3.00) I’m always a big fan […]

Au Petit Salut – French Fine Dining at Dempsey

My hubby surprised me with a dinner treat at Au Petit Salut to celebrate our 7th year of knowing each other. Nestled in greenery along Harding Road at Dempsey, this house-like restaurant exudes a quiet charm that is a perfect contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Make your way down the […]

The Muffinry Bakery & Cafe – Gourmet Muffins

  I recently spotted this little bakery shop tucked away in a row of shophouses while on the way for a team lunch with my colleagues and vowed to return to try its muffins. Shortly after, my colleague bought some for us and I must say they have one of the best muffins I have […]

3 Bites Full Handmade Premium Nougats

I discovered this interesting sweet treat kiosk during a lunch time walk at Raffles Xchange (Raffles Place MRT) and was quite fascinated by the pretty packaging of these nougats. I was given a sample of the cranberry nougat and simply fell in love with it. Cranberry nougat ($7.80 per pack of 10 pieces) Generous servings […]

Rive Gauche Patisserie – Go Napoleon!

This has always been one of my favourite patisseries in town. Just a simple “no frills”, “to-go” counter located at Takashimaya’s food hall. Classy French style of packaging   Napoleon ($6 per slice) Three layers of French style puff pastry with a layer of soft sponge and freshly whipped cream with sliced strawberries and icing […]
