Marmalade is a classic slow-food experience. The experts say that making marmalade involves cooking the ingredients slowly over a very long period of time so as to draw out every last drop of flavour from the fruits. We had brunch recently at Marmalade Pantry ION Orchard. The food was good but it was certainly a slow dining experience.
Wimbly Lu is a cafe and chocolatier that has become well known for their chocolate truffles and waffles. Their popularity must be one of the reasons for the traffic woes in Jalan Riang off Upper Serangoon Road. Their new outlet, Wimbly Lu Tyrwhitt, is a cosy space in the hipster neighborhood of Jalan Besar-Lavender. Parking should be less of an issue at Tyrwhitt Road and, in any case, the location is more accessible by public transport
We stopped by at Kith’s Cafe Marina Square when they were celebrating their 8th birthday. They also gave us reasons to celebrate with them by offering a 20% discount (which we believe was for one day only) and some gifts – toys from the past. Since their first outlet in Park Mall, Kith’s had expanded briskly in recent times. Just as in Park Mall (which is now being rebuilt), Kith’s is located right next to designer furniture store, Xtra.
63CELSIUS Paragon is a new restaurant that opened recently on the 4th floor of the Paragon Shopping mall on Orchard Road. The first 63CELSIUS outlet is located at Asia Square Tower 2. We had brunch at 63CELSIUS Paragon recently.
We can hardly think of a better food and drink pairing than coffee and bread. I am sure many others in Singapore have the same fondness for the combination as the toasted kaya bread and coffee places are often packed at all hours of the day. We were at The Central recently and decided to try the bread at Barcook Bakery.
The Cake Spade cake shop in Tanjong Pagar must have one of the cleverest name in the Singapore food business. It has two syllables, easy to pronounce and remember and is most appropriate for its line of business. It would have been even better if it was located in Marine Parade. They had recently moved from its small little space in Orchid Hotel down the road to a full shop space now on Tanjong Pagar Road.
In the course of doing some research for information on Cake Spade, we noticed something very striking about the reviews about this adorable cake shop.
