Durian puffs, S$4.20.

Durian puffs, S$4.20.

This was a random pit stop in the midst of aimless wandering at AMK Hub. I wasn’t hungry, and planned only to have mango sago pomelo, but the cute waiter convinced me to order a dimsum item to go with it. 😀 (more…)

Traditional baked mooncakes

Traditional Cantonese-style baked mooncakes

I knew that Kia Hiang has a long history, but never knew that they were the first to introduce durian mooncake. Or so they claim. They also claim to be the innovator of bak-kwa 肉干 (barbequed pork jerky) mooncake, which I’ve reviewed for inSing.com as one of 5 innovative mooncakes of 2009. This post will explore the rest of the Kia Hiang’s mooncake offerings for 2009. (more…)

“Mmm…what have you got in the box? Smells so yummy!” exclaimed the taxi driver, moments after after I got into his vehicle.

“Eh, muffins!” I laughed sheepishly.

“Are they good?” he asked.

“Dunno,” I replied. “It’s my first time buying them. They smelled really delicious, and I saw lots of people buying, so I’m bringing some home to try!” (more…)

Howdy, folks! Sorry I’ve been MIA. Don’t worry, I’m still eating well. 😀 It’s just that I’ve been too busy to edit photos and post them up!

On a weekday a fortnight ago, knowing I had to be out running errands all day, I wanted to travel light. The last thing I needed was a bulky DSLR. But a hunch made me slip the compact digicam into my bag.

True enough, I discovered a new foodie gem just when I wasn’t expecting to. After picking up a book order in Killiney Road, I was walking back towards Orchard Road when I detected the aroma of freshly fried epok-epok. Mmm…! Time for afternoon tea break!

On May 11, a bunch of hungry food bloggers pigged out on gourmet burgers and ice cream! Yes, I met up with Evan, ladyironchef, Nic, Hungry Cow, and Keropokman for lunch at Relish (stay tuned for that post). After that, we walked over next door to Island Creamery.

Chendol, Reverso, Nutella

Chendol, Reverso (the dark, chocolatey one), Nutella

Six different flavors for the six of us to share! That’s the good thing about eating out with a big group. You get to try more variety! This was my virgin Island Creamery experience, and I was very happy to see so many Singaporean flavors! (more…)

Ham

Ham & cheese on walnut raisin, S$7.20.

If I had to choose between rice or bread, it’s definitely rice. Yes, I’m a rice person. I get withdrawal symptoms from going without rice for more than two consecutive days!

Yet, after an unplanned visit to Freshly Baked, I found myself thinking of nothing but bread. Grabbing a late lunch, I’d expected nothing extraordinary out of a simple BLT on wholemeal bread.

But Freshly Baked’s wholemeal bread simply blew me away! Soft, fluffy, light, and so incredibly delicious that I kept pinching myself, “How is this possible? It’s nothing like the rough, stodgy wholemeal bread I’ve hated all my life!”

DDD

JCOOL Yogurt, S$3.80.

Hmm, fancy a fro-yo with your donut and coffee? J.CO claims their JCOOL Yogurt is 100% fat-free! How nice of them to offer a healthy, guilt-free dessert alongside their sugar-, fat-, and calorie-laden donuts! Heh, do you spot the irony?

Anyway, here’s the verdict: the JCOOL Yogurt is surprisingly ultra smooth, creamy, and tart! Normally, I prefer something less sour, but that day was horribly hot and humid, so its zesty tang really hit the spot! Plus I liked how creamy it is, just like a rich soft-serve ice-cream.
