This is definitely making it into my top list of cold brews. The coffee was rich and creamy with an intense and bold coffee flavour. While slightly sweetened, it balanced out the bitter notes nicely.

Hearty, aromatic and rich in flavours. Encased in a flaky pastry, the lamb was braised to fork tender with a distinctive taste of the red wine and overall not too gamey. The pastry was flaky and with a glaze made from the lamb jus, it added an element of sweetness to the entire pie. Worth the price? Definitely!

It was still warm when I took a bite into the 1st peanut tutu n the peanut together with its fragrance just filled my nostrils. It was nostalgic. A packet of 6pcs costs $3.50.

My mom and I visited this Singapore Coffee Museum to have our breakfast on 28 September 2022.

There were 3 staff near the cashier. While placing our order, my mom asked the staff beside the cashier whether they have mee siam.

The staff told us to look at the menu affixed to the wall. The area was dimly lit and my mom asked the question again. The same staff said something along the lines of, "Refer to the menu and order what you like." Meanwhile, the staff at the cashier looked on and listened to our conversation.

Let's assume for a moment that my mom is illiterate, so lighting is immaterial to my feedback. My mom then placed her order of Mee Siam with the cashier and the cashier finally said, "We do not have Mee Siam here." Why didn't she say this when asked repeatedly at first?

"I thought you said there is Mee Siam?" replied my mom to the staff who told her that.

"I DID NOT SAY THAT WE HAVE MEE SIAM, I told you to LOOK at the menu!" defended the staff.

At the same time, I was having a conversation with the cashier asking whether there were customers on the second floor. If there wasn't, I would not trouble them to open up the level just for us.

To my disbelief, the cashier said, "We (3 of them near the cashier) don't know because we are not in charge of the second floor. We are only in charge of the first floor."

I was speechless for a while. Why didn't you say that you will check and let me know? Is your Manager aware that this is your attitude?

I asked the same question again and explained my rationale. I did not get a response until after completing my order.

One of the three staff must have gone up to check. She came back and kindly told me that there were 2 other people upstairs.

Wow your staff are truly, unbelievably and extremely rude. I hope the Founder is aware of how your staff behave. It is unacceptable!

Havenโ€™t been to TDC in a while - inflation definitely hit, the bowl has shrunk by at least 1/3? That aside, was pretty pleased with my selection: Cilantro Lime Quinoa (a nice base with a light citrusy tang), Baked Sweet Potato (yum! really very sweet), Herb-Crusted Dory Fillet (skip it, itโ€™s meh), Eggplant w/ Garlic & Herb (alright but was a little dry), Sautรฉed Mushrooms (shimeiji was crunchy and delish!), Pomegranate Seeds (for a pop of flavour), and Pesto which is what I always go for, for that herby and bright flavour. I do prefer a thinner pesto tho, but their dressings are generally quite thick and creamy.

For my own reference, replacing the eggplant with fajita veg and dory with peri-peri chicken would be the most ideal combi! But I shall give the other options a try too.

Unsurprisingly, the ๐—จ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ถ ๐——๐—ผ๐—ป ($24) was unable to match up. The eel, gloriously glazed with teriyaki sauce and competently grilled, possessed a seductively sweet, smokey profile. Although Iโ€™m a big fan of scrambled eggs, the overly runny eggs that blanketed the rice were too wet. Here, the pickled carrots and ikura were unsuccessful in elevating the dish past the wetness. Still, this was a commendable dish.

Dining in a restaurant may be the only opportunity I get to shout โ€œObjection!โ€ to see someone elseโ€™s shocked expression โ€” not when the waiter asks you to pay, though โ€” but returning to @thetipsytavern.sg for Burpple Beyond deals is something Iโ€™d not object to.

Maxwell Chambers is, in laymanโ€™s terms, a venue for dispute resolution. I wasnโ€™t there because I was a lawyer; I was there for The Tipsy Tavern. While it does offer beer on tap, cocktails and all manner of bottled alcohol, I came specifically for the 1-for-1 mains on Burpple Beyond.

The ๐—ช๐—ฎ๐—ด๐˜†๐˜‚ ๐—•๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ณ ๐——๐—ผ๐—ป ($32) was a stunner. Beautifully-torched beef slices formed a ring around an onsen egg, and were sprinkled with spring onions. The beef, perfectly pink and justifiably juicy, was phenomenal. The pickled carrots added zest, the ikura were a joy to bite into, and the egg gave every component a creamy complexion. Outstanding!

We also liked the ๐—œ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ ($5) for its smoothness, but the ๐——๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐˜๐˜† ๐— ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ ($5) could be improved because the matcha flavour was too faint. The beverages were served with homemade cookies, which was a nice touch. We preferred the butter cookies to the chocolate ones because they emitted a fabulous fragrance.

This tiny cafe is definitely worth visiting for its desserts and the watermelon cake has been placed on the top of my to-eat list.

Chanced upon a little patisserie called Sugar & Tease located in Onze, which tbh is a building most people tend to overlook. The friendly gentleman at the counter informed us the most popular item was their watermelon cake. I saw a few dozen of them displayed in the glass counter, but sadly they were all pre-ordered and none were left.ย 

We settled for the ๐— ๐—ถ๐˜…๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—•๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ง๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜ ($9), which looked gorgeous. Strawberries, raspberries and blackberries adorned the tart, making it look like a tiny fruit garden. The juicy fruits provided a nice textural contrast to the firm tart shell, and we found this dessert immaculate.ย

Equate Coffeeโ€™s minimalist interiors with white and grey walls and furnishings are certainly easy on the eye. My ๐—œ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ ($5.50) was smooth and robust, providing respite from the scorching weather.

We also ordered a ๐—™๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ, which contained Baristart's signature BIEI Jersey Milk. Smooth, creamy and robust, I like it!

The ๐—–๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—บ ๐—ฃ๐˜‚๐—ณ๐—ณ ($4.50) was quite huge, about the size of an adult's palm. The custard cream oozed out seductively when the puff was cut open. While we liked the crispy and fragrant puff, the cream was a tad too sweet. Still, I would recommend this as I haven't tried a cream puff of comparable quality elsewhere.
