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.
Hyde & Co. has long been one of our favourite minimalist cafe hang-outs in Singapore. Our love for this cafe stems from the fact that it reminds us strongly of quaint English cafes in London, similarly exuding a comforting and cosy atmosphere.
Imagine our excitement when we found out that Hyde & Co. will serve a new dinner menu from Wednesdays to Saturdays, from 6.30pm to 10.30pm! We could not be happier as we had a great time with the mains we had here previously. This festive season, Hyde & Co. will also be offering several value-for-money Christmas set dinner menus (which starts at S$68 nett for two).
Readers of Ladyironchef will receive 50% off your second main course (from the regular dinner menu) on Wednesdays and Thursdays until 31 January 2016 when you flash this post. Reservations are required to redeem this promotion.
From Nasi Lemak Risotto, to Beef Cheek Rendang, and Chilli Crab Pasta – here’s everything to love about Hyde & Co.’s new dinner menu.
Time flies. It has already been four years since artisanal ice-cream parlour Salted Caramel first opened its doors in Upper Thomson!
The popular of this ice-cream shop that is jam packed with customers every night till date still hasn’t died, and their formula to success in this cut-throat industry is no mind-blogging secret – they pride themselves on handcrafting ice-cream free from artificial enhancers and preservatives.
Speculoos Cookie Butter, or Cookie Butter in short, has been famed for its nutty and creamy flavour worldwide. This spread is essentially made with baked cookies, before crushing and mixing them with oil until they become a mouth-watering spread – akin to the texture and colour of peanut butter, but even better. We love cookie butter for its addictive taste and would eat it straight from the jar if it was not so fattening.
Speculoos Cookie Butter spread has been leaving its mark across desserts as one of the ultimate ingredient that can never go wrong – macarons, cakes, waffles, ice cream – you name it, they would probably have dominated it all already.
Join the party as we uncover 7 Speculoos Cookie Butter Desserts For The Cookie Butter Fanatics.
Truth be told, we were really upset when November 8 at Upper Thomson shut its doors a few months ago. Thankfully, the same people behind November 8 has opened a brand new cafe & bar concept in the same Thomson V One Building and it is called Five by Five (5 x 5).
The 2-week old casual establishment is decked in an all-white interior with minimalistic wooden furnishings. Five by Five is one of the rare few cafes in Singapore that opens till midnight daily (except for Tuesdays).
Essentially a dessert cafe and ice cream parlour, Twenty Grammes has been constant in serving up quality ice cream, great waffles and unique flavours. Located along North Bridge Road, where an influx of new cafes have seen their way to the neighbourhood, Twenty Grammes has since upped the ante and new creations have been added to the menu to introduce more excitement for patrons.
Walking into this inviting and brightly-coloured cafe with perfect natural light streaming in, you will feel an immediate sense of comfort while being hit with the rich aroma of freshly prepared waffles.
It is also interesting to see how Twenty Grammes has curated some of Singapore’s recent dessert trends and attempted their own renditions. Here are some of the things that we love at Twenty Grammes; think savoury waffle with sea salt caramel ice cream, charcoal waffle with homemade salted egg yolk sauce, yogurt parfaits and more.
From now till 31 October 2015, flash this post at Twenty Grammes (Blk 529 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 or 753 North Bridge Road) and get 50% OFF the second waffle purchased (of same value or lower) from Mondays to Fridays only.
Local cafe famed for their specialty desserts – Sunday Folks – opened its doors about a year ago at Chip Bee Gardens and took our nation by storm with its irresistibly delicious sweets.
Café hoppers and foodies alike flocked to the spacious café to sample Sunday Folks’ delectable offerings of freshly baked Belgian waffles and mouthwatering ice cream. The one-year-old café’s menu is fairly limited – there are only six ice cream flavours – yet sees no lack of customers till date.
After the resounding success of their first outlet at Grandstand, Dancing Crab has since opened a brand new outlet at Orchard Central, replacing the space where Noodle Stories used to be. Dancing Crab is known to be one of the best Cajun-Creole restaurants in Singapore, pampering its patrons with authentic Louisianan cuisine.
Now, Dancing Crab in Orchard Central is also open for lunch every day, and you can expect a list of affordable lunch items, featuring their same fresh seafood and ingredients. Some new dishes have also been added to the existing menu, including new flavours for their ever-popular seafood boil.
Here are some highlights and dishes we loved at Dancing Crab, and there is no reason you wouldn’t too! Time to get your hands dirty, pals!
