Egg tarts are aplenty in Singapore, but real good ones are rare like eclipse.
There are a few types of egg tarts and we too have our preference. The ones that tug our heartstrings are the Hong Kong-style ones with flaky pastry and sweet egg custard filling. Now, those are pretty rare in Singapore, unless you go to a dim sum restaurant – which can be expensive.
Know where we always go to when we need our Hong Kong-style egg tart fix? We are about to let you in on one of the hugest secrets.
The owner of Lana Cake Shop, Mrs Violet Kwan, is retiring and she is looking for a successor to take over the legendary chocolate cake shop.
This iconic cake shop at Greenwood Avenue has been around since 1975, and there is a reason why it has remained immensely popular for so many decades. Moist and extremely chocolatey, you will never look at chocolate cakes the same way again once you have tried Lana Chocolate Cake.
And it is such a shame that we might never get to taste it again (unless the right successor is found).
Located on the 3rd storey of Plaza Singapura is American-Chinese establishment Lokkee that is not just your ordinary Chinese restaurant. It is worth mentioning that the up-and-coming gourmet eatery is successfully pushing the boundaries of traditional Chinese cuisine – without compromising on key oriental ingredients – and introducing a tantalising variety of revamped Asian classics that will impress even the most discerning diners. Expect unique renditions of steamed baos, spicy Sichuan diced chicken and whatnot.
Lending flavours from all over the world, Lokkee exudes a subtle touch of the West, but its interior and food remain inherently Chinese. Our feast at Lokkee surprised us pleasantly from very start to the end, and we would gladly return in a heartbeat for the impressive food and sexy ambience.
If you are running out of ideas on where to dine at for non-mainstream Chinese food, then you have to check Lokkee out – this mind-blowing dining concept that serves extraordinary modern Chinese food at Plaza Singapura will be a meal you won’t soon forget.
So we heard there is an awesome place for Lobster Rolls in Seoul – Lobster Shack. The name is as is, really. No frills, just awesome lobsters.
Sitting within Garosu-gil, Lobster Shack is a small outlet but that does not make it any less sexy. In fact, it is so atmospheric and we like how the decor is modeled after a typical Boston seafood shack. Well, some call it tacky, but who cares if we get our awesome lobster rolls?
Wait till we share with you more about the menu! But for now, remember this name when you are in Seoul – Lobster Shack has to be one of your pit stops.
Line Friends Store & Cafe was one of our first stops during our recent trip to Seoul, and you would not believe how excited we were. We couldn’t even believe it ourselves; who would have thought that a few characters would make us lose our composure?!
So it happened. We were like kids at Line Friends Store & Cafe, Seoul. It was like stepping in to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory; maybe even better. The multi-level outlet features hugeee merchandise sections and a cafe, and is filled with excitement and laughter of all like-minded fans of Line.
Hola! We spent an amazing Sunday late afternoon with our lovely readers at Changi City Point’s RessRoom, bonding over tantalising Spanish gourmet food and alcoholic beverages. We hope everyone had a smashing great time, because we sure did with all the company we were so happy to have.
The 2-hour food workshop was held at RessRoom – situated at The Oasis, a serene sanctuary tucked away at a corner of level one of Changi City Point and surrounded by beautiful lush greenery.
Now, while we reminisce the goodies we had that day, we would also love to share with you the fun and the behind-the-scenes of our cocktail making and food workshop.
If you are looking for a place to spend a quiet afternoon at, Lepark at People’s Park Complex – an unlikely location for a cool mod-sin tapas bar, we know – counts as a recent discovery and is now our new hideout.
With its hole-in-the-wall setting, it might take a little more effort to hunt this cafe down, but we promise you will not be disappointed with a rooftop dining experience unlike any other.
HANDS UP, LLAOLLAO FANS!
Who else is a fan of the very famous Spanish froyo (frozen yogurt)? If you haven’t even heard, which is close to impossible, Llaollao is a must-eat dessert in Singapore and the very photogenic froyo has been getting so much attention from everyone since it set foot on our shores. What is essentially just frozen yogurt is so much more with Llaollao, and they have changed the way we eat froyo forever.
With the array of toppings and sauces, Llaollao has revolutionised froyo, and they are no less pretty than ice cream sundaes. The good news is we no longer have to stand in queue for thirty minutes before we get our froyo fix, especially with the newest Suntec City shop – Llaollao’s biggest outlet in the world – that boasts a huge space with significantly shorter queues.
From now till 31 October 2015, flash this post at Llaollao’s Suntec City outlet and get 50% off the second item purchased (at same value or lower). Imagine buying one Sanum and getting the second Sanum at half the price!
