📍Toast days, 24 Haji Lane📍
💸 Traditional Pandan Waffles (Kaya): $12.80
💸 Kopi C Kosong (Iced): $3.30
...
Visited Toast Days, a relatively new Local cafe that opened in Haji Lane! Perhaps due to its location, the prices were slightly higher than usual😅. We quite enjoyed the Nanyang coffee, which was dark, strong and fragrant☕! The Kaya Waffles however, fell short of our expectations. The Waffles didn't really have a strong pandan flavour, which is what we usually prefer🧇. Also, we felt that the ice cream🍦 that came along with it didn't really go well with the Kaya waffles. When eaten together, you can't really taste the Kaya anymore☹️. However, we did appreciate the generous kaya spread given. Given it's hefty price tag though, we'll much prefer neighbourhood bakeries for waffles! But if you're in Haji Lane and looking for a cafe serving up local snacks, this could be the place for you☺️!

Really nice handmade traditional kueh at Jalan Kukoh Food Centre, a probably less well-known hawker centre around! Tried Soon Kueh and Peng Kueh, and both were full of vegetables and glutinous rice🍚, really fragrant and good😌! The skin was very smooth too, though a little on the thicker side😬. Do note that it's best to pre-order first these through a phone call, to avoid disappointment when you head down☎️!

💸 Kaya Bun: $1.60
...
Happy 57th Birthday Singapore🇸🇬! Celebrating National Day with one of our favourite local foods, Kaya toast and coffee, today😋. We've been eating at YY Kafei Dian since young, and it’s a nice childhood memory for us👭. Love the bread for its slightly crispy crust, thick, soft and fluffy texture🍞! Having a coffee here to go along with the Kaya Buns is also a must as the coffee is strong and fragrant, just the way we love it☕. Simply the perfect local afternoon tea~😀

📍June Bakery, The Plaza📍
💸 Orh Nee Tart
💸 Cheese Tart
💸 Peanut Mochi with Yam Paste
💸 Strawberry Cheese Mochi Tart
*$1.50 for each tart
...
We woke up at 7am to reserve these tarts from June Bakery, and was so nervous we wouldn't be able to call through but whew we did🙆‍♀️! If there's just one thing you should get, it's definitely the Orh Nee Tart. Super buttery and crumbly tart shell filled smooth yam paste and gingko nuts, it's really good🥧!! Tried their Cheese Tarts too but we much prefer the orh nee over cheese🧀, so we'll probably just be sticking to their Orh Nee items in the future. You simply can't go wrong with these🤩!

📍Toast Box, Wisma Atria📍
💸 Floss Thick Toast
...
Had a quick afternoon tea☕ at Toast Box today, and tried their Floss Thick Toast for the first time. We liked that there was a lot of pork floss piled on the toast🍞! But overall, it felt a tad too dry and we wished there was more condensed milk😟. Perhaps, instead of drizzling the condensed milk on top, it could be slathered on the toast instead...🤤 yums that would be perfect!

📍Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry, Tiong Bahru📍

Tiong Bahru Galicier Pastry's one of our favourite places to get traditional kuehs, and we're so sad that they're closing down soon😫! Got ourselves a last round of kuehs and pastries, including the Putu Ayu, Kueh Salat, Kueh Dadar, Kueh Ambon, Custard Tart and Custard Puff🤤. We exceptionally love their Putu Ayu, which is steamed pandan sponge cake with grated coconut🥥and flavoured with gula melaka. The pandan sponge cake is soft and airy, and not too sweet when topped with the sweet and savoury grated coconut, making it a perfect light afternoon snack☕! The Kueh Dadar is good too, as the crepe is soft and the grated coconut is fragrant. We love their pastries as they're delicious and not too sweet, making it perfect for everyone in our family🙌. Will miss it dearly when it's gone😢!

💸 Custard Bun
💸 Custard Puff
...
Love Confectionery is located really far away from our house, but we're glad we went out of our way to try their bakes😁. Their Buttercream Cake is so fragrant, light and fluffy that we found ourselves polishing a slice off in no time🍰. Love that there are many toppings you can choose to add to the cake, like peanut, almond, or chocolate sprinkles🍫, but we found ourselves liking the peanut🥜 and plain versions the most! They offer a variety of other cakes, breads🥯 and snacks as well, such as Pandan Cake and Custard Bun. Really appreciate such bakeries with affordably priced, wide variety and delicious bakes, wish that it was nearer to us though 😭.

📍MuYoo Bakery, Jurong Point📍
💸 Black Sesame Mochi: $2.80
...
We've had Black Sesame bun and bao before, but Black Sesame Mochi Bun🥯 is a first for us. The bun itself was soft and airy, with lots of black sesame filling inside. We liked that the black sesame filling was moist and not grainy, and not too sweet as well😄! Was concerned at first that the mochi might be hard or too plain tasting, but it was soft and chewy, which provided a nice contrast of textures😌. However, we would've preferred if the mochi was more spread out in the bun as ours was just a blob in the middle, which meant that we only got the mochi bits in the middle. Nonetheless, we liked it! ☺️

📍Dona Manis Cake Shop , Katong Shopping Centre📍
💸 Banana Pie: $3 per slice
...
The banana pie from Dona Manis is super soft, crumbly and fragrant🥧! When it came out hot from the oven, we could smell the pastry from miles away and it smells super good🤤. The banana🍌 was soft and sweet, and the coconut on top added a nice crispy texture to it🥥. We love the pie pastry itself, as it was flaky and buttery, literally crumbles in your mouth. Each slice is pretty sizeable as well, as a slice of it with a cup of hot tea makes a yummy and filling afternoon snack🍵!

📍Balmoral Bakery, Sunset Way📍
💸 Chicken Pie, Chicken Samosa, Chicken Curry Puff, Custard Puff, Cream Horn, Napoleon, Rum Ball, Custard Tart, Vanilla with Strawberry Jam Towel Roll: Total of ~$34
...
Traditional bakeries like Balmoral are becoming few and far between these days, so we should really cherish them while they're still in operation🥺. We're so happy to have gotten some old-school bakes today, as it's been a really long time since we had them😋. Love the huge variety of bakes here, we were simply spoilt for choice! Wanted to try a bit of everything so we ended up with 4 boxes in the end hahaha🌚. Our favourite was the custard puff, as the pastry was fluffy and soft, and the custard filling was slightly liquidy, eggy and not too sweet🍬. They were generous with the filling as well, and we thought the pastry-to-filling ratio was good! Other pastries we recommend getting are the Chicken Samosa and Rum Ball! Cheap and good~🤩

📍Nam Kee Pau, Waterway Point📍
💸 Amy Yip Pau
...
We don’t usually think of having Pau as a meal, but the Nam Kee Pau's Amy Yip Pau is a hefty one😱. It's so huge and heavy compared to a usual pau that it could be a meal if you're not super hungry🍽️! Though its huge, the taste is definitely not compromised. The skin was not too thick and the filling is juicy and well-seasoned🥩, but just a bit oily. We recommend it to be shared actually, as it could get a bit much after a while😬!!

📍YY Kafei Dian, Near City Hall📍
💸 Sugar Donut: $1.20

YY Kafei Dian is known for their coffee and kaya bun, but their Sugar Donut is equally good as well😛. It's the old school kind of donut that's coated with sugar, super simple but good! We love that it's soft and fluffy, not oily at all. Best enjoyed with their strong and fragrant kopi☕~

As we were leaving, we saw customers taking away 20 donuts, that's the best proof of how good it is😂!

Occasionally enjoys pigging out🤙🏻 Also on insta @munchkinggs
