Previously located along Beach Road, Candour Coffee—a Melbourne-inspired specialty coffee shop—has shifted to 72 Duxton Road and it is a spot that all coffee lovers have to check out. The minimalistic cafe directly imports their beans from Dukes Coffee Roasters and Market Lane Coffee. For those not the in the know, these two roasteries hail from Melbourne and are exceptionally popular for their high-quality blends.
Melburnian coffee aside, Candour Coffee’s menu also features a selection of MAN CHA teas, wholesome savouries, delectable sweet treats and alcoholic drinks! We dropped by one weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of their cuppas.
Formerly located along Tras Link, Cake Spade has recently moved to a newer location – in fact, just approximately two hundred metres down the road.
The new venue is a lot more spacious and can accommodate many more customers, but getting a seat on a Monday night still remained a tricky challenge because nobody can get enough of Cake Spade’s cakes.
CODE (Cafe of Dessert Enthusiasts) in Bangkok has been making waves on social media for serving these gorgeous lava thick toast and flavoured croissants. While Shibuya-style thick toasts are not new, Code has reinvented it by coming up with a lava rendition.
Dessert tables are all the rage these days for all events, and no event is complete without an attention-grabbing spread of desserts.
Because we are such suckers for desserts ourselves, we needed a massive dessert table on both days of our weddings. That was pretty much a prerequisite of #BradMelWedding, and it was something we placed much emphasis on for we knew it wouldn’t just be us who would get all excited over a table of colourful sweets.
Planning this wasn’t difficult at all with Creme Maison Bakery, who knew exactly how a dessert table should be done. Tell them your requirements and preferred desserts and they will bring a wonderland to your wedding. Well, they did for ours.
Local Cha Chaan Teng Chau Kee in Hong Kong has become quite an Instagram sensation with its splendid Golden Lava French Toasts. While our love for Liu Sha Baos remains eternal, we got to admit that we have too taken a liking to these fluffy French toasts with a Cantonese twist.
Of course, Golden Lava French Toast is not the only item being sold here. Chau Kee’s comprehensive menu includes an impressive selection of handcrafted dim sums and Chinese-style dishes such as Siu Mais and Silver Pin Noodles.
Due to Chau Kee’s overwhelming popularity, guests will have to wait up to at least 20 to 30 minutes before getting a seat.
Balinese specialty health food establishment Clear Café is renowned for its all-encompassing menu of nourishing juices, tasty salads, sandwiches, Indonesian classics and raw/vegan dishes.
This Ubud-based café has proved to consumers that healthy food can actually taste insanely delicious.
Set foot into the multi-level café and be greeted by a splash of rainbow colours; the open-air gorgeous café is characterised by pastel-coloured wooden furniture and boasts an unrivalled view of Ubud’s tranquil countryside surroundings.
Definitely worth making a special detour if you are visiting Bali soon!
It is not every day that we find an peaceful oasis of quietness and indulgence in the midst of our concrete jungle, but Calla Spa – The Newest All Day Luxury Spa at Suntec City – is going to be your next favourite haunt.
This luxurious spa sits within busy shopping mall, but we’d like to think of it as an urban oasis away from the hubbubs of the city. It boasts a spanking new facility that costs some S$4.50 million in renovations.
To kickstart its opening, we have an amazing deal just for readers of ladyironchef – simply quote “Ladyironchef” upon booking and you are immediately entitled to One-for-One Calla Spa Journey + Calla Massage (more details of the promotion at the end of this post).
Chouquette by Ollella, a pretty new kid in town, has caught our attention with an unlikely combination of artisanal French chouquettes (ranging from S$4 to S$5 each) and mouthwatering traditional Indonesian kueh lapis (S$1.50 per slice).
Chouquette by Ollella’s fancy-looking choux pastries and delicious kueh lapis are handcrafted lovingly by two talented sisters. The duo have given up their prospects in marketing and chemical engineering respectively to pursue their baking passions.
