Love them, I had my whole fridge filled their aroma on the day these were kept in the fridge. These became my healthy snack while I was working from home, I just ate them on its own.

#Jukhang - the sweetest and firmest of the lot, and larger than usual. Some acidity, but overall dominated by its sweetness.
#Vitaberry - The most acidic of the lot, but also filled with the most vitamin c. The acidity is balanced by the sweetness.
#Merryqueen - extremely juicy, not sour, and very sweet. My favourite of the four!
#Kingsberry - this is a huge strawberry, almost the size of the palm. It's the softest of the four, and has a strong aroma.

My favourite is the Merryqueen, followed by Jukhang! But they are all #PremiumKoreanStrawberry. Thanks @chefolivia @brandfitsg for these!

These are my top two pastries from Goodwood Park Hotel’s Durian Fiesta, ongoing from now till 26 July 2020.

The cover photo shows their durian puffs, where swirls of D24 durian mousse is sandwiched between fluffy choux puffs. It's an affordable and decadent treat. With D24 durian this good, you won't miss MSW, until you caved in and order their other delectable MSW treats.

The second photo features their coffee petit cake, which is part of a larger D24 Party Squares consisting of 16 petit cakes with four popular flavours - D24 durian mousse with cream cheese, pandan coconut, coffee, or chocolate marquise. The coffee flavoured one pictured is like a durian tiramisu, with bitterness of coffee complementing the sweetness of durian perfectly.

This is very fragrant, due to both the pandan aroma and the coconut aroma. Texture wise, it isn't airy and fluffy, and that's a good thing. It's denser than most pandan cakes, but it's still very soft and smooth. It's very fine pandan cake.
πŸ”Έ
I got to know that only all-natural ingredients are used - low-gluten finely-milled Japanese flour; extra fine Japanese sugar; gula melaka specially sourced from an exclusive supplier from Malacca; virgin coconut oil; and a house-made pure pandan extract from fresh pandan leaves.
πŸ”Έ
For the longest time, whenever people asked me for pandan cake recommendations, I could only recommend them this particular chain at our airport, for their convenience. But this pandan cake, arising from a partnership between Old Seng Choong and famed local chiffon cake extraordinaire Susanne Ng @susanne.decochiffon, is definitely in a different league.

Yes, we tried more than $1000 worth of different types of caviars that evening, but our key takeaway was the new friends made that evening. Naturally, after a few bottles of the premium wines, champagne and sake courtesy from @dq_sg_ken, things got even more fun.
πŸ”Έ
Now about caviar, if you ask me which is my favorite, for me it's no doubt @caviar8gems top grade No 8 Royal Beluga, but that's also the most expensive. For the optimal quality-to-price ratio, I'll go for No 2: Superior Oscietra, which I heard is also their best seller.

This was actually put together using premium ingredients from Phoon Huat, which is the place we always go for our baking supplies. They are also purveyors of fine foods, and sell top grade ingredients, making it possible for us to cook and fine dine at home. I'm not talking about just any caviar, oysters, uni, wagyu, and seafood. I'm referring to Beluga and Oscietra caviar, Gillardeau oysters, A4 to A5 Miyazaki, bafun uni, and Carabineros prawns.

When we heard that Nissin is putting luxurious uni in instant noodles, we went for it and grabbed 5 cups of these off the shelves. And I've just tried it.
πŸ”Έ
The label of the cup says that it contains 6.9% real uni, and of course at only about S$3 per cup, we won't expect it to taste like real uni. The orange 'uni' pieces you see here had a texture that's more like a uni-flavoured biscuit that became very soft after soaking in that creamy instant ramen soup. It's nowhere like real uni, but it certainly has some uni taste to it. The instant noodles soup has a thicker consistency compared to other Nissin cup noodles, so it is creamy and had a light cheese flavour.
πŸ”Έ
Also noteworthy is the noodles used here, it's thinner, and after cooking for only 2.5 mins instead of the recommended 3 mins, I liked the al dente texture.
πŸ”Έ
If you would remove your existing conception of how uni taste like, then this is certainly very enjoyable.

Good morning! β˜€οΈ A cup of tea in the morning sets me in the right mood for the day.

I recently tried several teas provided by an online platform, @teapasar, which had a very wide selection of tea. Fortunately, selection is made easier using a machine learning taste prediction technology.
πŸ”Έ
The platform allows you to understand your ProfilePrint, which matches your taste profile to the wide variety of tea available on the teapasar database. This means that you will not have to taste the tea before purchasing it as the algorithm can identify your taste profile and recommend teas you will enjoy.
πŸ”Έ
Pictured are a selection of tea available on teapasar - from @pinteaonline, @mykittea, @kindredteas, @sucresingapore, @parchmen_co, @1872clippertea, and @camelliateabar.

Yesterday, Chef Stephane Istel of Bar-Roque Grill showed us how to create the perfect cheese fondue from these French cheeses, and that included some wild recipe - cheese with buah keluak (see last pic). This combination was beyond my imagination, but turned out so good.
πŸ”Έ
The versatility of these French cheese was also showcased through easy-to-make tapas, by combining it with garlic or candied walnuts, then serving it on thinly sliced baguette.
πŸ”Έ
These French cheese can be found in major supermarkets.

You know those Taiwanese versions of pineapple tarts that we love in Singapore? Din Tai Fung has a Mid Autumn box of these, all individually wrapped in a box specially designed for Mid Autumn. The box features the brand’s mascots, Bao Zai (εŒ…δ»”) dressed up asΒ Moon Goddess Chang E (嫦ε¨₯) along with Hou Yi (后羿) against a pineapple moon (swipe for photo of box).
πŸ”Έ
The crust is crumbly and not oily, while the fillings are not too sharp in its pineapple flavours, yet rich in aroma. So these are not too sweet nor sour, very nice. Because they're free from preservatives, be sure to finish them soon after opening it.

Now you don't have to be crazy rich to be accorded exclusivity at Yoku Moku's latest outlet at Ion Orchard, because they have a private buying room for a more intimate buying experience.
πŸ”Έ
There's no minimum spend required, but I bought 7 boxes of these Japanese confectionery today when I was there!! The box is really pretty, so in-lieu of mooncakes, I'll be giving some of these as gifts to my friends while keeping the rest (with different box designs) for myself. The ones I bought have an expiry of Jan 2019, I can take my time to eat them through the year πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹
πŸ”Έ
This Mid Autumn box includes 20 cookies - 8 pieces of the signature Cigare, 8 pieces of double chocolat au lait and 4 pieces of double chocolat blanc. This is available at Yoku Moku's outlet at Ion Orchard's Basement 4, or Raffles City Basement 1.
