New cakes & revamped menu @ Antoinette

Fashion and food are a two of my favourite things. I was so excited when I heard the launch of Antoinette's selection of couture cakes this season. Antoinette has always been famous for its creative and beautiful aesthetic cakes. Inspired by world renowned designers such as Coco Chanel and Issey Miyake, fashionistas and foodies alike are in for a treat! The first cake I tried was the "Chocolat No.5" (pictured on the left), inspired by the iconic Chanel No. 5 perfume, this cho

Mid-Autumn Festival Mooncakes @ Antoinette

Mid-Autumn Festival, or commonly known as mooncake festival, is just around the corner. And as its latter name suggests, it’s a festival where people gather to eat mooncake. Singapore has been quite creative with its mooncake recipes over the past few years and Antoinette’s Chef Pang Kok Keong is not one to miss out on showcasing his creativity during this festive season. Making its brand-new entrance is the Salted Yolk Hae Bee Hiam (available in a box of 4 for $60+). Done in

XY Hotel Bugis, Jalan Klapa

This year, there’s going to be quite a few long weekends and if you’re not planning on going overseas during then, why not plan a staycation somewhere in Singapore itself? Previously, we’ve written about the XY Hotel’s party package and how they’re the first and only hotel in Singapore (from what I personally know) that allows you to throw a party in their premises. But of course, the parties don’t last all night, so you wouldn’t need to worry about the noise disturbing your

Antoinette is lavished with elements that are inspired by the French neoclassical period, and well known for their gorgeous Instagram-worthy cakes and multi-coloured macarons that makes patrons come back for more. And with new additions to their permanent menu that's available for both lunch and dinner? You will be spoilt for choice! Antoinette's Chef Pang Kok Keong introduces creative new and modern dishes that will take you back to some nostalgic moments with touches of Asi

Kumoya, Jalan Klapa

Further up away from the hustle and bustle of Arab Street and Haji Lane, we found Kumoya tucked along Jalan Klapa. Just a while back, the cafe was decked with the Sanrio character, Cinnamoroll, all over its interior as well as its food. But now it has resumed its normal setting, and even on a weekday night, the place was packed! Due to their limited tables available, we highly suggest you give a call to make a reservation before heading over, especially if you’re going in a b

Oberstrasse, Lavender

It was a lazy Saturday afternoon and I was craving a good brunch. So I decided to head to this cafe located in Lavender. If you’re looking for one of the best places for brunch in Singapore, look no further than Oberstrasse. Oberstrasse is located in Kitchener Complex, just behind Lavender MRT (V Hotel exit). They’re known for their yummy German/Swiss style food and affordable prices. I started with a side of luncheon fries ($5.50). It was the epitome of sinful. I couldn’t st

The Refinery, Lavender

Tucked away in a corner of King George's Avenue near an industrial area Lavender and Jalan Besar is The Refinery. Perhaps the space it sits in used to be a refinery of sorts, but we know for sure it is definitely a refined experience to dine here. Food here is largely Japanese-based with a hint of western influence, though its cocktails are definitely not Asian-inspired. The Refinery is popular among both the lunch and dinner crowd with dinner attracting more happy hour hunte

The Refinery, Lavender

The Refinery is a hidden gem tucked away in Lavender with the typical trappings of a hipster cafe - black industrial chic interior and indie music wafting out of the speakers. They've even got a cute mural on the wall. I love cafes like this - especially when it's quiet and it's a rainy afternoon. I had a really lovely praline coffee - the praline coffee comes in a ball and you pour the warm milk over it to see it melt. Stir the praline and milk and enjoy a beautiful blend of
