We have good news for those who live in the west of Singapore—a new cafe has started operations at Nanyang Community Centre. Yes, that means another place for residents and students to chill at other than Archipelago Creamery.
The Playground Coffee is a small, yet spacious cafe with an all-encompassing menu that is suitable for those who are dropping by for a simple afternoon tea or a filling lunch. All items on their menu are below S$16 and visitors do not have to pay for GST or service charge. READ ON
It has only been two months since the launch of Délifrance’s Halal-certified gourmet flavour bursting croissants but the respectable French bakery chain that everyone grew up loving already has something new to offer.
As the trend of cheesy food remains highly popular, Délifrance has decided to fatten all of us further with the all-new Cheesy Lava flavour! The other flavours in the mini flavour bursting croissant range – Salted Egg, Hazel O’tella and Cookie Butter – will continue to be there for you any time you need a good croissant fix.
From 01 August onwards, all readers of Ladyironchef are entitled to one free Cheesy Lava croissant with any three pieces purchased. All you have to do is to flash this post to the friendly staff at any Délifrance outlet to redeem.
Opened by the folks behind the successful The Tiramisu Hero, Butter My Buns at National University of Singapore’s University Town (UTown) brings wholesome cafe fare to the West of Singapore.
This new concept – Butter My Buns (yes, it is a cheeky name) – serves D.I.Y all-day breakfast sets, waffles and more.
The feeling of breaking open a semi-cooked egg yolk is almost unbeatable and is every foodie’s guilty pleasure. Admit it – most of us are big fans of eggs and even bigger fans of the versatility of this tiny, yet wonderful treasure chest.
An egg can add wonder to just about anything. An onsen egg on a warm bowl of ramen, poached eggs on toast or perfectly scrambled eggs that melt in your mouth; we love them all.
We have decided to put together this list of the best #EggPorn dishes that taste as good (or even better) than they look. Here is our pick of the 10 Most Photogenic Egg Dishes in Singapore.
Breakfast is always a motivation to get out of bed, especially for weekends. While brunch is arguably Singaporean’s favourite meal of the day, and while I like my eggs, French toast and pancakes, I also love going to the hawker centres in the suburbs and neighbourhood for my local breakfast fix. In Singapore, we are really spoiled for choices when it comes to cheap and good hawker food.
Here are 7 of the cheapest Singapore’s local hawker breakfast options.
Brunch is easily Singapore’s favourite meal. Fluffy pancakes drenched in maple syrup and accompanied by butter, Eggs Benedicts drowned in rich hollandaise sauce, or a hearty big breakfast of eggs, streaky bacons, sausages and toast – it is almost impossible to not like brunch.
In a city that has seen almost every restaurant and café serving brunch on weekends, Wild Honey has done remarkably well. It is one of the first few places that offers all-day brunch. It seems to have the right formula: brunch food made from produce that is sourced from the best in-season markets over the world – with very familiar flavours that would appeal to diners of all agw. There is no wonder both Wild Honey branches at Mandarin Gallery and Scotts Square are always packed.
Note: Parco Caffe is no longer in operation.
Located within the tranquil Raeburn Park, Parco Caffe – by the folks behind Spruce and Alkaff Mansion Ristorante – is where you would find solace from the hustle and bustle of city life. What is compromised for accessibility is more than made up for ambience. It was apparent that much of Parco’s emphasis is on atmosphere; from the creeping vines along its granite walls and lush carpet grass, to the floor-to-ceiling windows that bathed the café in natural sunshine, this place is stunning in every sense of the word.
Brunch is the country’s favourite weekend meal. It is so popular that almost every restaurant has started brunch service. Some places are slightly more adventurous, they come up with various interpretations using different ingredients; while others stick to the usual favourites such as eggs benedict, pancakes, and French Toast.
The Dempsey Brasserie is one of them. They feature classic items like eggs benedict ($18) smothered with hollandaise sauce, pancakes drenched with maple syrup ($12), scrambled eggs and shaved truffle ($16), big brasserie breakfast ($24). For something heavier, they also offer dishes like whole roasted chicken ($30), fish & chips ($23), and tagliatelle arrabiatta ($22).
Nothing says weekend to me like indulging with friends over a good brunch. So when the folks from Genting were in town, Beatrice and I brought them to The Dempsey Brasserie, where they serve weekend brunch from 10.am to 3.30pm.
