Colony at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore is one of the most stunning restaurants in Singapore. And it is one destination that suits every occasion—business luncheons, anniversary dinners, birthday celebrations and family gatherings.
During our previous visit to Colony, we were blown away by the extensive buffet dinner spread which features seven ‘live’ kitchens. Fast forward a few months and we are back at this colonial-themed restaurant for “The Journey”—a five-tier tiffin afternoon tea (S$49++/pax) which is now available from Monday to Saturday, from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.
Lounge your afternoon away in this gorgeous setting and chit-chat over savoury delights served in a five-tier ceramic tiffin and unlimited servings of delectable desserts from The Patisserie, a complimentary flute of champagne and Colony’s custom tea blend.
Colony is where a wonderful afternoon tea journey happens. And for readers of Ladyironchef, enjoy a privileged 15% discount when you quote ‘Ladyironchef15′ upon reservation.

Chouquette by Ollella, a pretty new kid in town, has caught our attention with an unlikely combination of artisanal French chouquettes (ranging from S$4 to S$5 each) and mouthwatering traditional Indonesian kueh lapis (S$1.50 per slice).
Chouquette by Ollella’s fancy-looking choux pastries and delicious kueh lapis are handcrafted lovingly by two talented sisters. The duo have given up their prospects in marketing and chemical engineering respectively to pursue their baking passions.
We paid Ollella a visit and here’s what we loved.
Cheese tarts are all the rage now and suddenly, everyone in Asia is scrambling for one. In Japan, we’ve got seasoned players like Pablo and BAKE who have been in the field for a while now.
And with the trend passing on to the neighbouring Asian countries, we now have various versions of iced and baked cheese tarts in Hong Kong, Bangkok, and of course, Singapore.
Riding on the arrival of the famous Hokkaido BAKE Cheese Tart in Singapore, several local players have also launched their own renditions – including salted egg yolk cheese tarts – this week. We are all in for a treat. Or two. Or many.
Move aside, Salted Egg Yolk Croissant. Cheese Tarts are the next big trend in Singapore. Here’s a guide on where to get the best cheese tarts in Singapore.
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).
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.
