With the new revamp on Level 3 as well as several new additions to the basement food hall, ION Orchard has even more to offer now. Life’s already short enough as it is, so treat yourselves to some year-end indulgence—both shopping and feasting—and if you need a solid place to start, let ION Orchard be your preferred location.
Highly regarded for their luxurious and high-quality chocolates, we were anticipating Awfully Chocolate Singapore’s gorgeous Blue Moon Chocolate Mooncakes for Mid-Autumn Festival this year. We expect nothing less from the expert chocolatiers at Awfully Chocolate who have been in the business for almost 20 years.
Locals trust this homegrown brand to always create chocolate desserts that are made with intricacy and care and this Mid-Autumn Festival, Awfully Chocolate Singapore shows us that they are more than just cakes and ice cream with their interpretation of mooncakes—the stunning Blue Moon Chocolate Mooncakes that come in two flavours.
These mooncakes are like mini chocolate desserts that mimic an actual mooncake. If you are tired of the traditional mooncakes with lotus paste and salted egg yolk, why not treat yourselves to a sweet delight with these pretty chocolate mooncakes instead?
Cookies are a go-to favourite among kids and adults alike all over the world. There are several varieties available and they are a perfect treat for any occasion. Whether you like it crunchy, chewy, savoury, or dunked in milk—cookies are great all the same.
Cookie monsters listen up: everybody’s favourite homegrown chocolatier, Awfully Chocolate, is proud to unveil a new line of decadent, artisanal cookies, giving us more reason to neglect our diets.
Placing a strong emphasis on quality rather than variety, their new line of cookies will only feature two types—Double Chocolate Chip and White Chocolate Macadamia. But if there is one thing that we can always count on Awfully Chocolate for, it is that they always come up with deliciously decadent treats.
As Singapore’s number one chocolatier, we know that we can trust Awfully Chocolate to launch the most exciting chocolate products of the highest quality. Awfully Chocolate’s existing line of truffles—which includes their classic Dark Chocolate Truffles and Champagne Truffles—needed a little boost. Hence, they have come up with 4 new flavours: Gula Melaka Truffles, Butterscotch Bricks, Praline Truffles and Dark Chocolate Espresso Truffles.
This new range of truffles will be added on to the existing lineup and will only be available at 6 outlets currently: ION Orchard, Marina Bay Link Mall, VivoCity, Raffles City, Star Vista and Ninethirty. So if you want to treat yourself to some delectable chocolates, you know where to go.
Here is why you cannot miss out on the amazing new truffles from Awfully Chocolate.
Sinpopo Brand along Joo Chiat Road is one very outstanding retro cafe that we absolutely love visiting for they always have new ideas to surprise us on every visit.
Apart from its local-style menu, you will be filled with nostalgia with songs from the 60s and its old-school interior; Sinpopo Brand is truly a local gem that reflects Singapore’s past.
Gather some friends and have a lovely time chit-chatting over Sinpopo Brand’s new Weekday (Tue to Fri) Afternoon Tea Set at S$30+ for 2 pax, from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.
For our readers, quote “Ladyironchef” along with this post to receive a complimentary bottle of Sugee Biscuits (U.P. S$12+) OR Salted Egg Yolk Cookies (U.P. S$12+).
Homegrown chocolatier, Awfully Chocolate, has an entire empire locally and the brand’s success has also brought about regional expansion. Today, the brand has a portfolio of restaurants, concept cafes and they even have their name brand chocolate treats sold in supermarkets in the region.
So, you can understand why we trust anything they dish out; their chocolate treats are irresistible!
Christmas is just around the corner and with it comes the painstaking task of gift-giving. The joy of giving is a wonderful thing to relish but what stresses most people out is undoubtedly the decision-making.
However, with Awfully Chocolate’s yearly Christmas hampers, you are set. Kick away your worries; the 2016 hamper has all the best chocolate treats, together with a celebratory bottle of Merlot. It is the best one yet, and here are all the amazing treats you can find in Awfully Chocolate Christmas Hamper for 2016.
Nestled in between the shophouses on Joo Chiat Road is Sinpopo Brand, one of our favourite cafes with a strong touch of nostalgia. The cafe boasts a retro rustic ambience – think wooden tables, checkered floor tiles, antique light bulbs, Bruce Lee posters and songs from the 60′s.
Nothing spells comfort to a Singaporean more than Nasi Lemak and Hor Fun – which is exactly what Sinpopo Brand is known for. However, what distinguishes Sinpopo Brand from the usual hawker centre food besides the vintage interiors of the cafe, is how they deliver local food that comes with a twist.
On our previous visit, we shared several of our favourite bites from Sinpopo Brand. Since then, the concept cafe has introduced new additions. There is a Salted Vegetable Duck Soup that totally reminded us of grandma’s cooking, a Muah Chee Salad and an extremely photogenic Gula Melaka Chendol Parfait!
Readers of Ladyironchef can enjoy any dessert for just S$5 with any 2 main dishes or Nasi Lemak for Two ordered.
