Fans of Dazzling Cafe will be delighted to know that a second outlet – Dazzling Cafe Pink – will be officially opening its doors at Orchardgateway on 23 March 2016!
Dazzling Cafe Pink is more female-centric with a dining and retail concept, featuring a plethora of different brands and products ranging from hand bags to fashion accessories. This probably also means a shorter queue at its first outlet at Capitol Piazza!
Everyone should know Dim Sum Icon in Hong Kong by now.
Remember those adorable Gudetama dumplings with molten centers that everyone was posting photos and videos of on social media? Well, to kickstart the new year, Dim Sum Icon has changed its Gudetama concept to a Little Twin Stars one with adorable dim sum items that will totally melt any girl’s heart.
Dim Sum Icon changes their character themes every three months and this Little Twin Stars theme will last till the end of April 2016. Then, a surprise new theme will replace this one.
Of course, we could not resist trying out these dim sum ourselves, so we ventured to The ONE at Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong to have a taste. We were certainly not disappointed by the array of colourful pastel-coloured dishes.
Living in the heartlands of Singapore does not mean artisanal gelato is inaccessible. Barely a year old, Double Scoops is an artisanal gelato cafe situated right in the heartlands of Ang Mo Kio, offering premium low-fat gelato at very reasonable prices, alongside a plethora of desserts.
Gelato is always a good idea, especially with Singapore’s humidity. Gelato is loved for being a healthier option as opposed to ice cream because of the lower fat content and use of better ingredients.
This humble gelato parlour has won us over with their no-frills concept that focuses on serving quality desserts. From now till 31 March 2016, readers of ladyironchef can flash this post or quote “ladyironchef” to enjoy 50% OFF the 2nd Waffle/ Shibuya Toast (of same value or lower) purchased from Mondays to Fridays.
Ding Dong! Who’s there?
The quirky brand is actually the brainchild of celebrity chef Ryan Clift. Ding Dong’s contemporary tapas menu features an eclectic mix of Asian-inspired cocktails, Peranakan-style desserts and East-meets-West gourmet dishes. These fusion delicacies are set to impress – at a hefty price of course.
It has been a few months since our last visit to Bangkok, and little did we expect to see the surprise outside Platinum Fashion Mall. There is a whole new stretch of food trucks just right outside the most popular wholesale mall in Bangkok, and it sure is a new food paradise worth checking out when in the Thai city.
Fanciful ice cream, Japanese curry rice, fried chicken and mango sticky rice; these are but a few to name.
And what seemed like the most popular truck that gets everyone’s attention was the stall right outside McDonald’s – Demi Concept. It is really a food truck that sells gorgeous Japanese soft serve cones.
All hail Deliveroo – the newest restaurant food delivery service that is taking flight in Singapore.
It has only been two months since its launch in town, but it is already our new favourite app for food delivery. Now, if you are thinking that it is just another delivery service now, you might have to take your words back.
Unlike the ubiquitous pizza and fast food delivery, Deliveroo strives to bring restaurants’ finesse and quality to your home – all at a flat rate of S$3 per delivery. Think proper meals of piping hot Japanese Curry Rice and Sticky Date Pudding (with ice cream no less); Deliveroo is a one-of-its-kind service, and it will forever change the way you look at food delivery.
You have to join us on this journey, and to get you started, readers of ladyironchef can use the promo code “LICROO” to get S$20 off your first order on Deliveroo. That is tantamount to a free lunch!
There are way too many Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore, and one that we tried lately and had a good dinner at is Don Dea Bak Korean BBQ at Kreta Ayer Road.
What we love most about Don Dae Bak Korean BBQ is that the restaurant uses charcoal grill instead of the usual gasoline grill. That sure makes a lot of difference to our meats!
Heading up to level 2 of 73 Amoy Street to Dapper Coffee was a tiny setback, especially after trudging through Singapore’s humid weather. But the cosy space made up for the “hike”, and we spent an idyllic afternoon at the cafe over great coffee.
The swanky interior resembles a cool British pub. The coffee aroma that filled the air was alluring and we were thankful for the good range of different coffee to choose from.
Let’s see what the hype about Dapper Coffee is all about.
