Each time we feel the need to travel yet don’t want to tax our wallets too much, we end up in Bangkok (right?). Usually we spend a couple of days there, and I am sure you would love to know which are the raved-about food places that are REALLY worth trying. Here’s our take on 9 food places in Bkk!
A couple of months ago, we were just blogging about the arrival of Tai Cheong Bakery in Singapore.
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…
Want to enjoy some good food fare in Singapore while easing in on your wallet? We hear you!
And this is possibly/definitely only the first part…
(*You might have to queue for some of these eateries listed though…)
William’s Cooked Food
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!
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..
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.
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?
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? 😛
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.
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.
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.
It was a bright, sunny day when we decided that it was time for some dimsum lovin’.
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.]
