Finally visited the second branch of Lola’s cafe at Holland Village, with its quaint two-storey unit nestled at the corner of Lorong Mambong. The minimalistic vibes with its simple, aesthetic decor gives the cafe a warm, cosy ambience for an afternoon coffee or fun brunch with friends. Went for the spicy crab rigatoni that was choke full of blue swimmer crab and lathered with a delicate balance of tomato, white wine and cream sauce. The flavours went well together, and the texture of the rigatoni soaked up the sauce perfectly. Not forgetting that tinge of parmesan cheesiness which gave that added goodness to it. Highly recommend!

Chicken wings fried to a nice crispy texture. The batter was slightly sweet yet spiced at the same time, which was quite delightful on the palate.

Matcha ganache cruffin with its crispy and fluffy croissant texture packed a rich, green matcha ganache which overflowed with goodness. I’d say a perfect sweet treat, but good news — it’s not too sweet either.

The iced milk espresso ($7) was a real treat too, a decent balance of milky and not too acidic.

Smooth iced white with a strong brew that was not too acidic.

Korean styled sandwich where notes of sweetness were way more apparent than the savouriness from both the garlic and cheese. Toast was soft and fluffy, and there was a decent amount of cheese to make each bite satisfying enough. Did hope that the garlic flavour would’ve come through more. But pricey for just toast as well.

Decent but nothing mind-blowing, especially because it was on the blander side. Though called fiery, it was not spicy at all either, so this really fell short of expectations. Without Burpple this pasta would not have been worth it. Nonetheless, Beer Basket remains a great place for beers — literally any kind of beers you want with craft beers on tap, a huge range of canned craft beers (both local and international), as well as wines. A good place to chill with their numerous drink options!

Finally had the chance to hit up One Man Coffee after being greeted by long snaking queues during their brunch time. Got lucky and managed to snag a seat for breakfast. Opted for the gashouse eggs as I was not feeling hungry enough for the bigger plates. Absolutely loved how they made it, cheesy on the top yet oozy sunny side up egg in the middle. I’m personally not a fan of sourdough bread that’s too tough, but this crusty rendition had a great chewy texture to it.

Add this bowl of creamy truffle tobiko pasta to your list of guilty pleasures. So decadent in terms of creaminess and ingredients. I loved the sauciness from the cream, which was so well balanced with the savoury flavours that I was so surprised that with all its cheese and cream it wasn’t too overwhelming. Both truffle aroma and taste were subtle, but any greater may have complicated the already strong flavours here. Loved the saltiness complemented by the very generous amount of bacon bits, and they didn’t scrimp on their portion of tobiko and mushroom as well. Having a bit of every ingredient with each mouthful of pasta may sometimes mean you’re truly getting your monies worth😜 $21 here does not make you feel ripped off. Your classic, authentic, Singaporean cafe styled creamy pasta done way too right🥹

Consider Glacier to be one of my favorite cafés! Apart from its sleek, minimalistic white aesthetic, they have a pretty interesting menu serving brunch grub, pastas and even a wide range of pastries. Not forgetting their selection of desserts which includes Pandan mochi waffles.

The Jumbo Crab Melts at Glacier is truly one to get excited about, especially if you’re into the sando trend & love all things seafood. Generous amounts of jumbo crab meat served with a soft, fluffy, well-buttered toasted brioche was enough to justify the price. But to make things even better, all it’s sauciness offered a refreshing flavour that was light on the palate while maintaining a good balance of savouriness. Let’s not forget how the melty oozy cheese really just hits the spot👌🏻

Decent mentai tots that’s pretty much what you’d expect. Loved the glaze of the mentai, but I thought that the tater tots were a bit on the hard and dry side.

Garden Slug Petite is a small cafe located in a relatively quiet neighbourhood of Kovan, but it seems to be a a favourite for regulars — especially when you can bring your fur kids here!
The Sambal Cheese Grilled Chicken Sandwich was an interesting one, but I preferred it much more over the beef chilli con carne. The cheesiness went well with the sambal spiciness, and the portion of chicken was rather generous. Then again I am really not a fan of the deconstructed aesthetic of the sandwich.

Pretty underwhelming sandwich for me. Couldn’t really appreciate the deconstructed aesthetic nor function here, especially when eating it this way just felt way messier than it should. Chilli beef con carne was decently flavourful though I was expecting a bit more from the entirety of this dish.
