These were not bad after delivery, but super yummy when we cut the squares into smaller strips and panfried them again. Taste is yummy, but with crispy edges? A killer combination.

Price: $5.60 for 4 pieces

Haven't had good dimsum in so long, and was so pleased to discover that Swee Choon delivers islandwide for $5.

Love that they pack the sauce separately. The silky cheong fun skin clings onto the plump juicy prawns - a magical combination that slides so easily down the throat. A real treat.

Price: $9.20 for 4 rolls

I find their frosting slightly too sweet, yet at the same time, sinfully delicious. Like you just want to sneak a pinch of frosting with every bit of cake.
Pictured here (clockwise) are the salted caramel, strawberry shortcake, red velvet and chocolate hazelnut.
Salted caramel was buttery and salty - not my favourite flavour profile, but if you like salted caramel, this is for you.
Strawberry shortcake was a crowd pleaser - unassuming, with a light sponge, vanilla frosting and sweet strawberries.
Red velvet was a classic - red coloured chocolate cake base with vanilla frosting.
Chocolate hazelnut was adventurous, yet not too bizarre - a chocolate cake base, topped with a nutty milk chocolate frosting.
My top 2 from this array would be the strawberry shortcake and chocolate hazelnut.

Price: $3.90 each

The mochi skin was very soft and supple. Although I don't usually love red bean paste, theirs was smooth and light, and not grainy/thick at all. Would get this again.

Price: $3

Was like a fancy beef bolognese. Loved the thin, silky spaghetti and chunky meat sauce. Guess they do both cupcakes and food well!

Wanted to try this just because it sounded interesting and we really enjoyed it! It was even better than the dark chocolate ice blended I usually get, because of the nice textural contrast with the chocolate cookie bits.
Price: $8.50 for small, $9.50 for medium

Woke up bright and early to cart these out but I had too many things to order and too little time. Didn't manage to snag their filled donuts but thankfully I was able to score some of their plain cinnamon sugar ones!

They are indeed very fluffy and chewy. In fact, I kind of liked that they were simple and there was no filling to detract from the texture of the donuts.
Price: $2.80

Sorry I didn't re-plate it. Not as aesthetic as dining in, but the portion was quite generous and they gave an ample amount of sauce such that most of the fluffy Japanese rice was covered. Lots of soft scrambled egg and unagi as well!

Price: $16.80

Decided to try my hand at making a Korean Seafood Pancake as I was craving Korean food yesterday. Looked up a bunch of recipes and improvised for the rest. Added julienned carrots, sliced spring onion stalks, prawns and diced white onion. Flavour was good, although I would have liked it thinner and more crispy! :
Ingredients
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1 cup water
Finely sliced veggies eg. onion, carrots, spring onions
Assorted seafood eg. prawns (can also use clams, scallops)
Finely minced garlic
2 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil

Steps
1. Mix plain flour, rice flour and water together. Add more water to get a runnier texture if you like your pancake more crispy. Add soy sauce and sesame oil. Stir well to mix.
2. Saute a pinch of minced garlic with the finely sliced veggies in some oil
3. Add some of the pancake batter (from step 1) over the veggies, being careful not too create too thick a pancake
4. Flip once nicely browned on one side
5. Serve and enjoy!
6. Repeat to make more pancakes.

I had these in Hong Kong when they were fresh out of the oven - which was, as you can imagine, divine. The ones here in Singapore still taste good even after being refrigerated, which is a feat in itself. Their tart crust is biscuity and buttery, and their egg custard bouncy and silky. A quick and affordable treat.

Price: $2

Looks real funky, I'll admit. But it's not as daunting as I expected. The pandan flavour is prominent but not overwhelming or unpleasant in any way. I do prefer the classic, but this is worth a try.

Price: $2

It is light and not cloying in the least. So unassumingly good that it makes me almost forget the price and want 5 more. Would definitely get this again. Even the non-coconut lovers in my family downed this as easily as the smooth, silky egg tart.

Price: $2.70
