📍Champion Bolo Bun (Tanjong Pagar)
- Classic Bolo Bun with Butter🥯
- Champion’s Milk Tea🍵

Warm crispy bolo bun yum! Sweet crispy top and fluffy moist bun with thick cut butter~ If only the bun could be a little warmer, where the thick cut butter melts, that will be perfect, but nonetheless, this was still good…

The milk tea was rich in flavour and not too sweet, nice…

Overall, the bolo bun and tea were good but they were a little pricey…can try once in a while given the price point…

Damage: $12.36

📍VIBE (Raffles Place)
- Fish n’ Chips (Set lunch with mushroom soup & crispy chicken)🐟

The fish n chips tasted like a hint of curry powder and as for the fish itself, tbh, tasted quite bland, overall, can get a little surfeiting to finish it…

The crispy chicken shine it’s way through in the set meal, it was really good, well seasoned and crispy just like crackers~

As for the mushroom soup, normal, the taste you already know…

Overall, a little pricey and with the price tag, can go somewhere else for better fish & chips…

📍WANt Food Taiwanese Delights 戀戀灣味
- Taiwanese Braised Minced Pork Rice Bento🍘
- Signature Oyster Intestine Mee Sua (Reg)🦪
- Taiwanese Salty Crispy Chicken🍗

Would recommend the salty crispy chicken (鹹酥雞), crispy and juicy, well-seasoned with pepper & salt, good for sharing!

The braised pork rice (滷肉飯) was decent, the braised egg and beancurd were well braised. The pickles (sour) and cabbage (crunchy) were good too, these help to refresh the tastebud. However, the braised meat / braised sauce was a little lacking, savoury but tasted just like salted dark soya sauce, missing that bit of sweetness (probably like rock sugar), a little pity…

The oyster intestine mee sua (蚵仔豬腸麵線) was a little disappointing. The mee sua was too diluted and bland, even the vinegar and chilli also couldn’t help… only good thing was that the oyster and intestine were fresh and plump…

Generous food portion and fresh ingredients, hopefully they can improve in the overall taste in future…

📍All Things Delicious (Arab St)
- Strawberries Mascarpone Tart🍓
- Mixed Berries Mascarpone Tart🫐
- Mango Mascarpone Tart🥭
- Mango Choux Au Craquelin🥯
- Pineapple Tart🍍
- Chocolate Chips Cookies🍪

Pastries & tarts and cookies from Malay neighbour, so sweet of them!

The fruit tarts and cookies were all so good, perfect in that sense that they were not too sweet, the fruits were fresh and sweet/sour on their own, cream was light and not greasy, and the crust was just crispy and buttery~

I would want to find one day to patronise the cafe myself~

📍Monochrome Cafe
- Monochrome’s Brunch🧇
- Aglio e Olio with Bacon🥓
- Mentaiko Fries🍟
- Flat White☕️
- Osmanthus Sencha🍵

The brunch was quite filling, a tad too sweet cos of the maple syrup, sausage was good, good for sharing…

On the Aglio Olio, the pasta was al dente but overall it was a bit too oily and greasy…

As for the mentaiko fries, we find it quite salty…

The flat white was decent though, light to medium body with nutty finish…

Overall, a small cozy cafe for photo-taking, Instagram-worthy but food and drinks wise, so-so…

Damage: $53.50

📍Parallel Coffee Roastery (Opening at 118 Tagore Lane)
- Finca Santa Teresa Batista☕️

Honey, Jasmine, Earl Grey, Tangerine
Variety: Gesha | Altitude: ~1,500m | Process: Honey

Like the sweet smell with that bit of sourness (acidity), light to medium roasted, smooth filtered coffee indeed!

Thanks for the invitation!
