A hidden gem situated in the residential area of MacPherson is Wishes Cafe, selling creamy gelatos and fluffy waffles. The charming little cafe looked unsuspecting from the outside, standing next to a convenience store and a kopitiam while the elderly milled about with their groceries and caught up over their morning kopi.
We were welcomed by the comfy-looking chairs and beautiful sakura decorations that hung from the ceiling. A very Instagram-worthy cafe indeed, the food and beverages here did not disappoint either, whether in taste or presentation.
Wishes Cafe offers several unique gelato flavours including Avocado, Thai Milk Tea, Mint Tea, Peary Ginger, and Kumquat Sorbet.
The Shilin-inspired Night Market opens to the public for two weekends (from 19 to 21 April & 26 to 28 April 2019) at [email protected], Singapore Turf Club.
This Taiwanese-themed street festival is held at a 200 000 ft² space with over 300 stalls and different vendors segmented into four zones: Eat, Shop, Play, Fun. Despite there being enough nosh, fashion, lifestyle and design goods to see, the event was generally underwhelming.
Brought to you by Invade Industry who also hosted Artbox Singapore and other flea markets in Singapore, you would expect the event to be better organised. The queue at most of the stalls are between 30 to 90 minutes. And there’s a long snaking line just to enter Shilin-inspired Night Market.
Just to be clear, the Shilin Singapore is a Shilin-inspired Night Market concept and not the actual Shilin Night Market from Taiwan.

Fishball noodles and pork porridge are comfort foods for many. For us, ice cream is a go-to and an essential, especially with such merciless weather all-year-round.
Some may say that what sets good ice cream apart from subpar ones is the use of quality milk and cream, but we beg to differ.
Kind Kones is a new ice cream parlour in Orchard that serves vegan ice cream—yes, that means that no milk nor cream is being incorporated in its making and less guilt while consuming your ice cream! The best part? It doesn’t compromise the taste nor the quality of their desserts.
Gone are the days when waffles are being eaten on its own—there are literally cafes serving waffles paired with ice cream everywhere we go now and even savoury waffle pairings for those who do not have a sweet tooth.

Granted, these treats do not come cheap. For those who’d love to savour some waffles and ice cream without breaking the bank, fret not for here are 10 cafes in Singapore where you can get waffles and ice cream for less than S$10.
