I am sure many of you would have known by now, that they are here to stay! Yay!

You could probably imagine our wide-eyed salivating faces waiting eagerly in line for the delicious egg tarts once again. Here’s the thing, it’s even better now because they serve Hong Kong cafe food, on top of the nomnom egg tarts. We don’t know about you but there’s just something about (authentic) Hong Kong cafes and its lovely, lovely food… Read on. . .

William’s Cooked Food

Hokkien Noodles; $3.50

With a not so appealing signboard (the kind with faded photos, unintended sepia mode… HAHA), this food stall is manned by a very friendly and well-endowed auntie. We believe her husband should be the chef! Read on. . .

Honolulu Cafe Singapore – Disappointing Egg Tarts

Honolulu Cafe has jumped onto the bandwagon setting up a store in Singapore, fueling the Hong Kong egg tarts craze. It is said that the famous egg tarts contains 192 layers of flaky crust and gets sold out by noon. Let’s see if this is worth the queue..Hong Kong Cafes in Singapore | Honolulu Cafe Singapore | Shopfront

Woke up bright and early as we anticipated a queue on a Sunday morning. Reached Centrepoint at 10.10 am and there were already a few people in line. Read on. . .

Bakery Chef – The Kingdom of Lava Toasts

In the recent months, lava everything has been blown out of proportion ever since the whole salted egg yolk croissant came to our shores. But, it doesn’t seem to deter anyone from trying out new places with any new dish related to salted egg yolk/lava.

Naturally, chancing upon their video posted by The Insider would mean that we HAVE to give The Bakery Chef’s lava toasts a try.I mean, have you seen how gorgeous they are? Read on. . .

Dutch Baby Cafe – Lightest and Fluffiest Pancakes!

A quaint cafe located in the basement level of Paragon Orchard, Dutch Baby Cafe is one of the newest cafe additions in town. Dutch Baby Cafe is yet another self-developed brand from Japan Foods Holdings. Other sibling brands include Ajisen Ramen, Botejyu, Menya Musashi etc.

Wondering about the name? Did you think it was a cafe meant for babies, specifically Dutch? 😛 Read on. . .

Foon’s Thai Recipe – Yummy and Affordable Thai Wanton Noodles in Old Airport Road

Even though Soi 19 is possibly the most famous/publicized Thai Wanton Noodles stall in Singapore, we prefer Foon’s Thai Recipe. It is located along the last aisle of food stalls in Old Airport Road Food Centre, nearer to the multi-storey carpark.

Look at the lardddddddd

Our past visits to Soi 19 were terrible as we waited crazy long hours and there were times when our orders were forgotten. Perhaps all that wait and hassle made the noodles not as desirable as it is to everyone else. Read on. . .

Tunglok Teahouse Singapore – Exquisite Handmade Dim Sum

Tunglok means 同乐 in Mandarin, which basically means “happy together” in English. A great and telling name for a restaurant if you ask me. Known for their exquisitely handmade dimsum made on the spot, we knew we had to give it a try.

Bake Cheese Tarts

So the wait is over. The famous BAKE Cheese Tarts are finally here in Singapore! But perhaps what’s standing between you and the delicious cheese tarts is… a 90 minutes wait time (at least). The queue starts from the event area right outside Watson’s.

[Tip: we heard that if you go just before the shop in Ion closes for the day, you might be able to get them within 10 minutes! Provided the cheese tarts are not sold out, of course.] Read on. . .

Truly Test Kitchen – Food Made With Love

Whoever said good food cannot be cheap and affordable… has obviously never tried Truly Test Kitchen. Despite being located in the Industrial Estate at Kampong Ampat, between MacPherson and Aljunied Road (ulu in other words), this modern coffee shop has proven themselves, drawing customers from all walks of life.
