Crispy White Carrot Cake! Smile Jul 01, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean | Chinese | Hawker Centre

 
Located in the popular Hainanese Village Food Centre in Hougang, Hup Huat White Carrot Cake as its name suggests, specialises in White Carrot Cake. There’s only one item sold here, in two sizes ($2.50 or $3.50), no more and no less.

 
I ordered the smaller portion at $2.50. If you are one who love to chew on the cubes of carrot cake, this variant might not be the one you are looking for as much of the carrot cake had been mushed beneath the egg save for a few pieces. Ignore that fact and that it does not come in a whole piece, it is definitely enjoyable as it comes without much grease, and the egg is pan-fried to crispiness; so much it actually resembles potato chips with a smoother texture.

The Hideout is a new cafe situated at Cassia Crescent; a stone's throw away from Guillemard Road that focuses on their gelato which is claimed to be made in-house. A mere four days old when we visited, it is already been flooded with patrons who are there to try their cakes and Buttermilk Waffles with ice-cream. For beverages, they serve tea and coffee, the latter using blends from a low-key local coffee roaster named Vittoria Coffee.

 
Since it is one of the specialties, I decided to go for their Buttermilk Waffles with ice-cream ($8.90), going with the Chocolate Hazelnut flavour. Those who prefers their waffles soft would like this rendition; the waffles were so moist it melts-in-the-mouth. While the Buttermilk flavour was evident, we felt that it could be further enhanced as it seemed to stop short of it. The Chocolate Hazelnut ice-cream was fine though; it was smooth and had traces of cookie crumbs to bite and tasted rather similar to Ferrero Rocher.

 
We also tried their Earl Grey Mousse ($4.90) was rather standard fare; the mousse was smooth and the vanilla-base cake went with the Earl Grey accents, though there was nothing much to shout about either.

For the love of Whoopie Pies! Smile Jul 01, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Bakery | Café

 
Whoopie Love is a two-month old cafe located in Toa Payoh that is all about their passion to Whoopie Pies. The simply decorated cafe may not be attention-grabbing, but we love it how they have seats for dine-in. Here, there are five flavours that are available everyday, while there is also one that is a special that rotates weekly.

 
Blueberry Lavender ($3.50) is one of the few rotated flavours offered at Whoopie Love. Unlike most of the resident flavours, this contains nothing chocolatey; so non-chocolate fans do take note. Whoopie Pies, as described by the owner is a crossbreed between cookie and cake; our Whoopie felt like a two egg cakes with cream in between presented like a cookie. The cream carried an interesting floral scent that was aromatic, but spiked with a tinge of fruity sourness that was rather intriguing, while the egg cakes were soft and fluffy and left no messy bits on the plate. A pretty match of flavours.

Delectable local fusion gelato! Smile Jul 01, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | Ice Cream and Gelato

 
Momolato is one of the stalls that had sprouted up at SMU of the late. The gelato here is all made in-house, and the selection of flavours rotate weekly. Here, there is something for everyone; taking an example from their scooped gelato, where there are classic flavours such as Earl Grey and Bailey’s, while there are also quite a variety of fusion combinations such as the Shiro (White miso with almonds and butterscotch drizzle) and Milo with marshmallows. They also do sell popsicles; a rare treat to find in gelato stalls.

 
Shiok! ($3.90/scoop) is a flavour that would win hearts of Singaporeans. The combination of Coconut with Gula Melaka and Pandan Jelly feels not only local, but also sounded pretty much like a decent replica of Chendol. Their gelato was smooth and creamy; the photo just speaks for itself. We found the flavour pretty rich, with a distinct Pandan taste that’s definitely coconut-y followed by the signature sweetness of Gula Melaka. The Pandan Jelly did provided a bit of flavour, but given the way it was stored, it pretty much froze up with the rest of the gelato and became pretty icy though it was not really too much of a deal.

Keong Saik Road had recently seen a few quite interesting openings, such as Afterglow, Muchachos and most recently Potato Head Folk. Opened barely a week when we visited, Bread & Hearth is an artisan bakery that bakes their bread fresh in-store everyday. Their menu consists of tarts, freshly-baked bread and sandwiches, serving organic cola/lemonade, coffee and Gryphon teas for beverages.

 
The Matcha Orange soft roll ($2.80) caught our attention as it was a daring attempt of putting two ingredients rarely matched together. It went to be rather fine, as the Matcha flavour was really light on the palate while it included some orange bits to chew on for a bit of citric zest to tantalize the tastebuds. The downside was however the soft roll itself; a wee bit dry and dense that it was rather hard to swallow.

 
Only one tart was available, and it was the Salted Caramel Tarte ($6.00). Coming with a generous amount of Macademia nuts, they provided a great break for the heavy scorched flavour of the caramel. I was fine with how it tasted, but the sticky and gooey salted caramel was too heavy for my dining partner to handle. Tart base was rather cookie-like; a wee bit hard to cut without trying to attract too much attention from surrounding diners. Due to how heavy it tasted, it probably be good to share this with one or two more friends.

 
They were very secretive with their coffee beans used for their coffee here; the cashier was telling me that she thought it was imported from Italy and asked the barista to find out more, only to return with an answer that they use their “own” blend for their coffee. No matter what it is though, the Flat White ($5.00) had a pretty medium body that had nutty and chocolatey tones.
