Not a great fan of gingerbread man? Why not try the gingerbread latte at Joe and Dough?

 
The seasonal brew is not overpowered by spices but has a well-rounded smooth taste with lingering aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. This is one of the festive items launched at Joe and Dough, a 6-year old homegrown cafe establishment which takes pride in serving quality coffee and fresh wholesome food. Run by a passionate husband-and-wife-team, Damien Koh and Dawn Wee, this local brand remains unfazed against Starbucks' muscles and continues to expand with latest outlets at Kallang and Novena.

Besides the gingerbread latte which pairs very well with the two creative named gingerbread "Hansel & Gretel" ($3.20 each), there is a huge, gorgeous Varlhona Chocolate Noel Cake with Mixed Berries.

 
Clad in 62% Varlhona Satilia chocolate ganache and rolled in 33% Varlhona Opaly white chocolate cream, there is tinge of roasted almond aroma in the deep chocolatey profile that contrasts well with the light filling in the middle. The bright tart berries give the cake a lot of zip but I wish the sponge could be more moist and more chocolate ganache to illuminate the dark beauty of Varlhona. But at $6.80 per single slice roll, it is quite a steal.

 
I was worried that the pairing of Turkey Ham with Brie Cheese ($9.50) would make this an intensely savory sandwich but it was not! Sweet cranberries and refreshing wild rocket provided an excellent support for the creamy brie and moist flavorful meat, all barely stuffed within a crusty home-made cheddar cheese baguette. If only this special X'mas hot sandwich was for life and not only for this season......

 
Nevertheless, the tasty regular items would keep us coming back for more. For instance, the Spicy Surimi Crab Sandwich ($8.50) was an unexpected triumph. Between two slices of warm, fluffy sesame brioche, generous heaps of shredded crab smothered in light mayonnaise were piled neatly on fresh lettuce. There isn't much of the spicy kick, but the tangy mayo juices kept us working through to the final crumb.

 
Like the Christmas Roll cake, all pastries and bread are produced in-house and they were well above the average cafe standards, if not pleasantly satisfying. I urged anyone to try the Blueberry Yoghurt Tart ($6.50), which is no flouncy haute tart but one of a silky-textured, gelatinous filling with hints of tart. Surrounded by a crumbly digestive fortress wall which caused a mess on a plate that anyone would be happy to clean up. Full review on www.dairycream.blogspot.com

Came here to try the Christmas set menu earlier, of which some items are also on the regular menu. Highlights for the starters include the Bay Scallops Salad with Walnut Mustard Dressing. Expertly cooked till the surface were lightly browned, the scallops were sweet and tender, complemented by red radish and mesclun at the side.To most people, chestnuts means turkey stuffing or Mont Blanc. But here, chestnuts mean soup, a luxuriously creamy dish with bold splashes of subtly sweet balsamic vinegar reduction, giving it a great a multi-dimensional sweetness. Bread is not missed here for the crunchy grissini breadstick works even better with the soup. Or one may consider soaking some of the amuse bouche of an aromatic, albeit deflated, Gruyere Cheese Choux puff into the soup!

From now till 31 January 2015, Si Chuan Dou Hua has partnered with Long Ming Xuan, the first bird's nest sommelier in Singapore that retail premium bird's nest tailored to customers' preferences, to come up with a luxurious Sparking Imperial High Tea. Featuring nine delicately handcrafted dim sum paired along with a glass of sparkling wine and premium Chinese brew, the afternoon tea feels very much like enjoying a classical sonata with three movements.

The first part of the afternoon tea comprises the familiar meat dumplings that are elevated with the thematic prized element--bird's nest. This very much mimics the the first movement of a sonata which sets the motif and catches the audience attention with fast-paced uprising rhythm.

From Xiu Mai to Xiao Long Bao, the silky dumplings were served from the steaming bamboo baskets shortly after another. One could not help but felt nervous and excited because they were best savoured piping hot while the smoke was still visible. The star ingredient didn't have much taste on its own, but it imparted light crunchy bites to the little purses of pork or chicken that dribbled meaty juices with each bite. ......

Cedele Christmas Cake Feast 2014  Smile Dec 24, 2014

Full review and pics: www.dairycream.blogspot.com

From its classic Carrot cake to Middle Eastern inspired Sesame Tahini Cake, Cedele's organic cakes have always impressed with their light, delicate, exceptionally moist cake layers and this is no exception for Christmas log cakes.
Blessed with a touch of zen, the Green Tea Yule Log ($8.50++) is such a wonderful and joyous thing to eat because of its unrivalled intense flavours and superbly fluffy green tea sponge. One bite simply tells it all-- a genuine matcha cake that in on par or even better than some in Japan. The bonus lies in the smooth black sesame mousse, a much better match than red beans in my opinion. Since it is now the festive season, we decided to try the all-day Christmas set menu which features a Grilled Turkey Bacon Roulade (or any other main course) + Christmas cake (or any chilled cakes) + coffee/tea

5 Reasons to Celebrate X-mas Here Smile Dec 22, 2014

A giant 15 feet Christmas Tree greeted me when I stepped into the lobby. Making a detour around it, I spotted a familiar figure--Mr Santa--resting happily in the goodie house and surrounded by his old friends, Mr and Mrs Gingerbread Men. The cheery festive spirits at Grand Waterfront Copthorne Waterfront were highly infectious and they definitely pumped up my appetite to indulge in the Yuletide treats at Cafe Brio's. Here are FIVE REASONS why this is a great location to wine, dine and be merry! Salads, live station, meats, desserts, etc.

 
The Raspberry flavoured Grand Marnier and "Guanaja" Chocolate Christmas Yule Log Cake is a comfortable partnership of flavours but I wished the Grand Marnier flavour could be more pronounced. Nonetheless, the texture of the chocolate mousse is astoundingly velvety, just like the excellent Panna Cotta which I had previously at Pontini.

 
Freshly made on the spot, the golden waffles with crisp browned edges and a tender, not-too-sweet interior is also worth a spot in the limited stomach space. Highly flexible to go along with any savoury ingredients like smoked salmon or sweet creamy ice cream.
