I first tried Boost when it opened in ION. I still remember looking at all the choices I had, and deliberating for the longest time before choosing Banana Buzz. Consisting of bananas, milk, honey, and vanilla ice yoghurt, it is much a much healthier and yet equally tasty alternative to Starbucks... Or at least I like to tell myself this is true. Instead of ice cream, all their drinks use ice yoghurt or sorbet, so...
My love for this place began when my friend gave one to me and I tasted the chocolatey goodness. With that bite, I knew I had to track down this shop. When I found it, I was surprised to see they had a such a wide variety. I always thought brownies would just have one flavour, but they had sea salt caramel, chocolate mint, peanut butter. A flavour worth mentioning is the Chill....
The first time I came, I tried the waffle with salted caramel ice cream and horlick tim tam ice cream. Best. Decision. Ever. It has since been my staple every time I'm here. The chocolate stout and the earl grey are quite good as well, but salted caramel and horlicks are just the best combination to me. They balance each other out very nicely, and the waffle is sweet and soft, drizzled with copious amounts...
Not a major huge fan of ice-cream but I decided to give Marble Slab a try after being enticed by their $13.80 offer which includes three scoops of ice-cream and a waffle, and I am left without any regrets! Ordered these three flavours: thai milk tea, creme bulee as well as salted caramel (no one can ever resist salted caramel). The ice-cream was served to our table, although we had thought that it was supposed...
Perfect score in all aspects! Found this little humble store tucked away at a corner right next to a HDB lift landing at Tanjong Pagar, and the ambience of the store totally blew me away. The small and cozy restaurant reeked of the strong Japanese culture with its flags and staff uniform. From the music playlist down to the utensils, everything just screamed "Japan!!!"and it was definitely an amazing experience. My friend...
After trying out various hotels in Singapore, Ritz Carlton had definitely left the deepest impression on me. Maybe its because of the extremely spacious room that managed to fit me and my five other friends without feeling even a tad squeezy, or maybe its because of the picturesque view of The Floating Platform from the room that took my breath away, or maybe its just because of the huge octagon window right next to the...
As a huge fan of salted egg yolk, I was thrilled to find out that Tom's Palette has salted egg yolk flavoured ice-cream and I just fell in love the minute I tried it. Tom's Palette generally serves exotic flavours, and their most popular has got to be Granny's Favourite, which I like as well. There are also other flavours such as Yuzu and also Salted Caramel Cheesecake, and I often find myself in a...
After reading an article about Little Hiro on this very site, I’ve been wanting to visit to try out their Ramen Burgers! The place is about a 10-minute walk from Botanic Gardens MRT and its baby blue exterior and red signage is hard to miss. It even has a unique bear mascot, further adding on to the friendly vibe of this restaurant. The menu board above the cashier counter was quite...
I used to go to Ikea purely for the food but now as the completion of the house ticks nearer, i find myself being more impressed with the ultimate purpose of Ikea - Home Furniture and decor. Ikea appeals to me mainly for its pocket-friendly prices and the creative showrooms ranging from small home layouts to bigger homes and different sections like the kitchenette, living rooms, bedrooms and the bathrooms! They revamp their...
