Bakery Brera, located within the Old empress Road HDB estate. This bakery bakes out European style bread.

Having read so many good reviews and watched a YouTube video on them, was pretty keen to try their bread and decided to get their signature cruffins and Kouign Amman.

Cruffins and the amman were great. But what really wowed me was their banana loaf. The banana loaf was nice and moist inside with a slightly crusty exterior. The smell and the taste if the banana loaf totally blown me away

The Junbo Crab melts is certainly 1 dish that catches my attention.

It certainly looks very good.

Bread was slightly toasted, cheese was quite good. Crab meat was ok.

Overall 3/5

Tong Ah Eating house used to be located at the iconic building just down the road at the V junction of Keong Saik and Teck Lim Road. And have been around since 1934.

Interior also has a very old school feel to it.

Although famous for their crispy kaya toast, they do whip up good zhi char dishes as well.

Their crispy kaya toast was rather good, just very old school style.

If not for the reivews of burrplers, would not have known that there's a Circle Croissants near my workplace.

These Circle Croissants are the latest craze and Yeast side has already adopted it Into their menu.

As I went after work, the Pistachio cream Swirl Croissants already sold out, only left Almond & black forest. Decided to takeaway the almond Croissants.

Taste wise, it was rather good, was expecting almond cream, but it was an almond like paste within, it tasted good nevertheless, but was hoping for something creamy within.

Maybe yeast side can work on a nicer packaging for its pastry/bread section, as this was takeaway in a white box that couldn't be closed fully with the 2 Swirl crossiants in it, had to carry it home with the flap full ajar after.

Madeleine's is by far one of the best Portuguese egg tarts in Singapore.

This bite size egg tarts are perfect for sharing and it's easier and less messier to eat.

The egg pudding itself has always been very good.


YY Kafei Dian is a very popular coffee shop serving hainanese fair. Came down on a Sunday lunch time, and was presented with a long queue, have to chop table first before joining the snaking queue.

Dub as one the best kaya bun in Singapore, this is a must try here at YYKFD.

The bun had a slight crisp from being toasted. Thickly Layered with kaya, with a thin slice of butter kiap in between.


Happy oven has plenty of awesome bakes.

One of the nicest bakes at happy oven is the Banana Cake

This is one of the better Banana cakes I had.

It was moist and sweetness was just right.


Recently saw a video on this place on social media. Since Conveniently located near mrt station decided to give a try.

Apparently, the Baker uses French butter for their bakes.

One thing for sure, it certainly smells very good.

1) Plain Croissants @$4.50
2) Pain Au chocolat @$4.60
3) Egg Tart Croissants @$5.50

Generally all is quite good. The price of the egg tart Croissants very steep in my opinion.

The custard is quite good, but it looks too similar to egg tart. Around $2 can buy a good one already.

The crossiant is really quite good though, definitely will return to get them.

The rebel gurl basically serves Banh Mi.

But there's nothing basic a out their menu, so many different variations of banh mi is available here.

Decided to have the "Hot Chick", which consist of 2 fried juicy patties, their in house "rebel" sauce, mayo , asian claw and of coz coriander.

The baguette was thin and crusty.

Not very filling though, better get some sides with it.

Saw too many awesome photos, decided to give it a try.

Generous portion of lava. The baguette slices functions as a cup to hold the generous amount of lava.

1) cheese - the best of the 3 flavours I had today, sweet & buttery

2) cookies & Cream - like eating warm cookies & cream ice cream.

3) hazelnut- quite gelak but it's good as well.

Caution!! Eating this will get u all messy. The lava may even go up your nose when u chew on it.

Note: needs to be reheated in oven or air fry to enjoy this at its best.
