Whenever I visit IKEA, I would usually stop by the takeaway kiosk to grab myself either a hot dog, curry puff or soft serve to go. It was then that I chanced upon their latest offering of their Strawberry Soft Serve ($1) instead of their usual vanilla one.

The soft serve was creamy as usual, with a nice sweetness with a tinge of sourness of the strawberries. It was well-balanced and not overly sweet, making it quite enjoyable! If you've yet to try it, I suggest you do! I'm not sure how long it'll be on the menu, but get it while it lasts πŸ˜‰

[NEWLY OPENED TAKEAWAY SPOT] If you work around the Beach Road area, keep a lookout for Hvala's newest outlet!

Serving up drinks and warabi mochi, this zen spot comes with a minimalistic Japanese-like garden walkway entrance, right up to the counter where you place your orders & watch your drinks get made! While dine-in is not available, you'd still get your dose of favourites such as matcha & hojicha lattes or the newest ice blended drinks!

I got myself the Iced Genmaicha Latte ($6.90)-roasted rice with matcha tea atop milk! You can top up $1 to change it to oat milk too! The result is a perk-me-up afternoon beverage & a perfect tea spot πŸ˜‰

Apart from coffee, Cowpresso has a menu serving up savoury bites & sweets!

One of the items on the sweet list are the homemade Brioche Doughnuts! Made freshly in-house on a daily basis, if you do come in the morning, the only available one would be the Honey Original.

As the name goes, the doughnut is glazed with honey mixed with Madagascan Vanilla Butter. The light & fluffy doughnut is then dusted with sugar frosting and served warm to you upon order.

The drizzle of honey elevates the fluffy doughnut quite a fair bit, making it a delightful snack to have with your coffee.

Come after 12.30pm if you intend to get your hands on the other flavours such as the Creme Au Chocolate ($5.80) and the Very Berry ($6.20)! I'd also definitely come back for the other desserts which consists of soft serve atop these doughnuts (ooooooo).

Donut question my love for these lovely baked buns 🍩

These stuffed brioche donuts from Nassim Hill Bakery comes with 2 simple flavours - chocolate or Kaya. The former fills the bins with luscious thick dark chocolate which isn't too sweet to the palate that even the older folks approved of it. The latter is filled with a coconut-y sweet pandan jam that reminds you of the good old days. Each bun has just the right amount of filling to dough ratio, allowing you to get a little of filling with every bite.

A box of 4 is affordably priced at $14, which means each pop is only at $3.50! Super duper worth it! They're available for delivery or self-pick up! What I did was pre-order it the day before, then pop by for a nice brunch before collecting the sweet treats 😌

Chanced upon The Headless Baker when I realised they were opening an outlet at Star Vista, but did you know that their original store was just about a 15 mins walk away?

Located within Ghim Moh Hawker Centre, THB sits amidst hawker stores and stands out with their beautifully assorted and arranged tea cakes in the display.

As we reached a lil' late (almost closing time), we managed to snag up their Earl Grey Lavender ($3) and Pandan x Gula ($2) teacakes!

Each teacake is dressed with a drizzle of flavoured icing on top which isn't too sweet and goes well with the tea cake sponge.

For the former, as you bite into it, a hint of lavender perfumes your mouth & nose while you taste the earl grey. With lavender bits topping the icing, the light scent prepares you for the enjoyable bite.

As for the latter, it may sound sweet when you read the name of it, but the well-balanced tea cake feels like having chendol (without the milk & ice) in a warm toasty bite, which is rather heart-warming.

Both tea cakes also got the approval of the in-laws for being not too sweet & rather enjoyable.

If you love corn, this is one dish that you must have when you visit Mason Noodle Bar!

As a starter to share, this corn dish ($8) comes with kecap manis emulsion and lime. As simple as it sounds, the flavours blends so well together, turning crispy deep fried balls of corn into something so flavourful and addictive! The emulsion gives you a slightly sour and spicy punch, with a squeeze of lime to cut through the oil. Definitely a must to get when you visit!

If you didn't know, Mason Noodle Bar is a pop up using TMBH's space on Fri & Sat evenings from 6.30pm onwards~ menu is seasonal, so get your hands on it before they switch it up! πŸ€™πŸΌ

Due to P2HA, dining out was obv not possible, but that doesn't mean you can't get Michelin-star quality food in the comforts on your own home!

Was blessed by a friend who delivered Burnt Ends to our home in celebration of my birthday!

Next, the Beef Marmalade. A must-order starter if you're dining in cause having it on the spot would definitely taste a whole lot different! It came deconstructed and I pieced it back based on my vague memory of having it that one other time. The marmalade is made of smoked beef brisket that's slow cooked with bacon & beef bone marrow. What you do is top the sourdough toast slices that comes with it with a portion of the marmalade, then top it with the house made pickles and aioli. What you get is a party in your mouth followed by fireworks beefy goodness and a slight tartness of the pickle to cut through all the fatty juices that comes with it. Even though it's a small bite, it ticks all the flavour boxes in this snack.

Just a stone throw away from Jurong East MRT (connected by J-Walk for a sheltered passageway), Venture Drive serves up your espresso blends, cold brews & single origins pour overs! They also do small batch roasting in their little space, so the whole store is perfumed by freshly roasted coffee all the time 😌

The espresso based coffee is a Brazil single origin with notes of chocolate, brown sugar & chestnut, giving you a sweet, easy to drink cuppa without the acidity. An easy flavour for the non-coffee drinkers too! The 8oz white ($5) also pairs well with their in-house brownies, such as the Raspberry Rose Brownie ($6.50) that has comes as a dark choc brownie with a sweet-sour center of raspberry rose crumble & jam. The perfect mid-day combi.

Apart from their Impossible & Tindle Patty burgers, The Goodburger also serves up pretty decent sides for the lil' ones, or for you to snack on!

The Golden Nuggets (also plant-based) does taste like your normal Nuggets from that popular fast food joint (iykyk) which is a win for me cause that lessens the guilt (a lil).

As for the Mozzarella Sticks, the cheese-pull is what you're aiming for & that's exactly what you'd get. The handmade salsa dip that comes with it has a perfect tanginess to it, helping to cut through the cheesiness of the sticks.

What I enjoyed the most was that while all the sides were fried, they were not dripping with oil when it was served, neither were they glistening with oil. The amount of effort the team takes to ensure that the items are cooked & drained before serving is amazing! Kudos to them!

Located just a stone throw away from Potong Pasir MRT, Fuel X (sibling to Fuel Plus+) serves up an extensive menu of brunch staples, coffee & bites!

One of the sides that's a perfect sharing dish is their Mentaiko Bro-Cauli Nuggets! The perfect pun to showcase their use of broccoli & cauliflower as bite-sized nuggets which comes lightly battered & drenched with Mentaiko. If you didn't know, you wouldn't have thought that you're either veggies - which is perfect for kids, or non-veggie eaters like me! 😜

What's life without an assortment of tarts? πŸ˜‰

From the lovely folks at @wunderfolks (only on Instagram), this Tart Platter ($54) was up for grabs during a giveaway hosted by @shout.sg! & lucky me managed to snag myself a box hehe 😬

The Tart Platter consists of 9 x 6" tarts, with 3 main flavours - Lemon Meringue, Chocolate & Fruitilicious! Swipe left for individual shots.

Love the lemon curd & how tart it is! & buttery tart, omg, so good. The assortment of fruits on fruitilicious is pretty generous as every mouthful comes with a few bits of fruits.

Definitely worth ordering especially for the festive parties coming up year end! 1 tart per person, no cross-sharing ✌🏼
