Had a midweek sweet tea break at the pretty space of Rise Bakery with colleagues. It’s on the pricier end, but their fragrant and crisp brown butter waffle paired extra well with the white peach oolong ice cream. Eyeing to try the genmaicha flavour next!

Wah these matcha tarts from @dairyandcream were ON POINT, 100% worth trying especially for matcha lovers!

I loved the very clever addition of nutty black sesame layered in between the buttery crunchy crust and bittersweet matcha ganache. It’s topped off with mildly sweet black sugar cream, plus a cute little matcha paw print with a surprise middle.

I much preferred the ones without peanuts for the matcha flavours to shine better and you can request to opt out upon order.

We had the house-made Donut Balls for dessert. They are freshly fried on order and comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, crumbles, blueberries and a sweet blueberry date compote. The outmost layer of each ball had a pretty nice crunch, but it was unfortunately too dense and doughy past that.


We’re all familiar with Tai Cheong Bakery’s egg tarts, but they’ve now launched newly crafted mooncakes for this Mid-Autumn Festival! Directly flown in from Hong Kong, here are the flavours you can expect:

• Single Yolks with White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake
• Ham & Nut Assorted Mooncake

It’s the mooncake season again! Kickstarting this year’s with the well-beloved Raffles Hotel’s snow-skin mooncakes.

Alongside the signature Champagne Truffle Snow-Skin Mooncake, the hotel has introduced 2 new flavours - Sakura & Raspberry and Yam & Coconut Rum. Also returning this year are the flavours of Yuzu & Osmanthus and Baileys Chocolate. The design of the tin is gorgeous!

Patiently waited for homebaker @twoambakes’ Matcha box and finally snagged one, feat. Matcha Yuzu Tart, Nikoneko Matcha Financier & Matcha Tiramisu!

I absolutely loved her tart. It had a crisp shell filled with an intensely bittersweet matcha ganache, complemented by a bright yuzu paste - in just the right amount that didn’t overpower. The Tiramisu on the other hand, had a lot stronger coffee notes than matcha. Can’t wait to try the matcha terrines!

Haven’t had Sunday Folks in such a long time! Ordered the Earl Grey Lavender Ice Cream & Dark Chocolate Ferraro, both on single waffles to share. I preferred the former flavour thought it was a tiny icier. Note that there’s a minimum of 1 item per pax, inclusive of beverages.

Home-baker Spoon After Spoon’s gorgeous Cherry Pistachio Tart definitely delivered both in terms of visual and in taste!

This seasonal bake features a decadent pistachio cremeux lining the tart base, topped with cherry confiture and carefully hand-pitted sweet cherries. I absolutely loved the well-balanced rich nuttiness of the pistachio and sweetness of the cherries. The tart base also had a thoughtful tinge of saltiness which complemented perfectly. You can visit @spoonafterspoon or for more ordering details.

Had Ri Ri Cha’s Nian Gao Waffles a while back and I still remember how pleasantly surprised I was by it! I like waffles with more of a bite, and they nailed the texture on theirs: crisp on the outside especially on its edges, and fluffy inside without being too airy. The soft and slightly chewy nian gao layer in the middle was of just the right ratio too!
The ice cream flavour we chose was a no for us though. The Roselle Smoked Plum had a grainy texture and the balance of sweetness and sourness really didn’t work for us. Will be back for the waffle and other ice cream flavours instead!

All them Korean mochi donuts from DONAS 8, newly found at Market Blue in Tanglin Mall! These are Korean chapssal donuts (sweet glutinous rice donuts) that come in either a cream cheese or red bean filling, with flavours such as original, injeolmi, matcha, cocoa, strawberry, etc.

A pity we didn’t get to dig into them right away, so that affected the texture quite hugely. Think they would do much better if you have them freshly hot - we learnt after that from the team that the tip is to freeze them when you’re home, and air fry them at 180 degrees for 5 mins when you’re ready to have them.
