La’ Coffee – Traditional Kopi and Toast in a Modern Cafe

La Coffee Kaya Toast

Kaya toast and eggs is the nation’ favourite breakfast combination. Together with an aromatic cup of local-style coffee or tea – or what we affectionately call kopi or teh – it is the simplest form of comfort food and one that we will never get sick of.

Whenever we dine at YaKun or Toast Box, we’d wish for an operator to reinvent the environment of a toast-and-eggs joint with a modern and cafe-like take. So when we heard about La’ Coffee - located next to Old Hen Coffee Bar in the Rangoon Road neighbourhood - we headed down on its first week of operation to check them out.

Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters Singapore

Pacamara Coffee

It is a clean state of white.

Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters is one of the new kids on the block, but not that new if you are familiar with OZ Specialty Coffee. Formerly located at the other part of the Upper Thomson neighbourhood, the brand has undergone a major revamp and repositioning and now sits proudly as Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters at the edge of the busy stretch of Upper Thomson. It is a much bigger scale, with a proper dine-in space because they serve more than coffee and desserts now.

Guide to Cafes in Rangoon Road Neighbourhood Singapore

Rangoon Road Cafes

Rangoon Road is one of those areas that we’d love to think of as the “last frontiers of Singapore”. In our memories, we grew up knowing Rangoon Road as one laid back neighbourhood scattered with coffee shops, little eateries and workshops. When one thinks of Rangoon Road, Ng Ah Sio and Founders Bak Kut Teh come to mind.

However, the neighbourhood is more than just bak kut teh. While Rangoon Road may not have evolved much, it is no less quaint and lovely. Today, many new cafes have opened in the neighbourhood and it is hardly a surprise given the strategic location.

Here is a guide to cafes in the Rangoon Road neighbourhood.

7 Things We Love About the Buffet at PARKROYAL on Pickering’s Lime Restaurant

Lime Buffet

Stepping in to PARKROYAL on Pickering is an experience so impeccable, and its grandeur is one-of-a-kind and unrivalled. This eco-friendly hotel – with a total of 15,000m2 of sky gardens, waterfalls, planter terraces and green walls – boasts a breathtaking metropolitan architecture that has completely changed the Singapore skyline.

Lime, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, is equally alluring. It is always a pleasant to dine and drink there, and be enraptured by the lush tranquility. The food never disappoints, and we could get used to a glass of its signature Limeade every day.

Lime Dessert Buffet

And what keeps our hearts is the lavish buffet spread that is nothing too exorbitantly-priced nor pretentious. Just good, honest food that fuels the soul.

Here are 7 things that we love about the buffet at PARKROYAL on Pickering’s Lime Restaurant.

Lime Restaurant at PARKROYAL on Pickering presents The Nonya Set

Lime PARKROYAL on Pickering

PARKROYAL on Pickering is a gem along Chinatown. The eco-friendly hotel boasts a breathtaking metropolitan architecture, and the star restaurant – Lime – is a crowd pleaser no less. With a strong following from the executives and expats working in the vicinity and local families and couples, Lime dishes out delectable spreads every day for its fans. While the lunch and dinner buffet is particularly popular among its business crowd, Lime has come up with a sweet deal for those who still love dining at the gorgeous establishment – minus the food coma from a heavy lunch.

That’s what buffets always do to us, right? We eat our lunch hour away with all the cold cuts, pastas, cakes and whatnot. And we rub our bellies happily as we leave, only to realize that lunch will have us feeling all restless and dazed when we get back to our desks. So that is why Lime’s new Nonya Set Lunch got our attention, and we thought it couldn’t be a more brilliant idea!

Lime Nyonya Lunch

Beginning from the month of September, the Nonya Set (S$38++) will entice with a Peranakan charm. Individually plated and with a variety of five tantalising dishes, the Nonya Set is specially conceptualised by Lime with the idea of satisfying your cravings for all things Peranakan in a comfortable and laidback environment. Retreat to a menu of Peranakan classics lovingly prepared by the prized Chef Nancy Teo – who has deep Peranakan roots – and indulge in a fulfilling lunch of Kueh Pie Tee, Bakwan Kepiting Soup, Babi Pong Teh, Ayam Buah Keluak, Chap Chye, Bubur Cha-Cha and Durian Pengat Shooter.

It is the perfect dining option – be it a business luncheon or if you are introducing overseas friends to Peranakan cuisine. It saves you the hassle of walking to and fro for your food, and it is never as messy as a buffet can get. But if you still love your all-you-can-eat style, you will be delighted to know that an additional Peranakan section has been added on to restaurant’s daily buffet spread, so you get to enjoy free flow of all these Nonya treats from Lime at PARKROYAL on Pickering Singapore.

The Nonya Set is available daily during lunch and dinner at S$38++ per person.

10 SCOTTS Afternoon Tea at Grand Hyatt Singapore

10 SCOTTS

10 SCOTTS at Grand Hyatt Singapore is more than just a hotel’s tea lounge. Impeccably designed with a collection of rooms, it makes you feel right at home. Like being in your living room where you can host a group of close friends over drinks, the cosiness is unrivalled and one that replicates the warmth of home. Or, it can make a quiet meeting place to have coffee with your clients over some corporate talks. It also works as a lovely library where you can enjoy some me-time and retreat into your shell.

On days when you feel like taking a break and giving yourself a little treat, the afternoon tea at 10 SCOTTS at Grand Hyatt Singapore is just the thing you need. It comes in an elegant two-tier glass tray that is packed with lots of goodies. The items change periodically, but there will always be a staple selection of sandwiches, tarts and quiche, as well as all-time favourites like the delicious crab cakes with remoulade sauce that we are not ashamed to admit wolfing down several of it at a go. Other snacks include the freshly-made seafood popiah (spring roll), samosas, and scones served with homemade raspberry jam, clotted cream and kaya (coconut jam).

10 SCOTTS Afternoon Tea

There is a also a self-serve freezer that houses a varying selection of salads, cold dishes and homemade ice cream as well as a communal table with over six different freshly made desserts. The stars of the show include the anti-griddle fried egg – with vanilla ice cream forming the egg white and mango passion puree representing the yolk – and a beautiful flower pot dessert that is really a generous helping of salted caramel ice cream and chocolate soil, topped with chocolate brownies and delicate edible flowers.

In addition, the afternoon tea comes with a selection of hot dishes from the live station, cold cuts, artisan cheese and bread. And the best part of it all? Everything that you are served with at 10 SCOTTS’ afternoon tea is refillable. The only danger is you will end up eating more than you should. But sometimes, all of us deserve to indulge a little, so go ahead and spoil yourselves.

On weekdays, the afternoon tea at 10 SCOTTS is S$43++/pax with refillable tea, coffee and fruit juices; and S$73++/pax with free-flowing of Perrier-Jouët Champagne. On weekends and public holidays, the prices are S$53++/pax and S$83++/pax respectively.
