Great ice cream and waffle! Smile Jan 06, 2014

It is not strange to see more newer eateries/cafes opening up in the HDB heartlands. Beans & Cream, that has recently opened up in Bukit Gombak, is one of such. With an increase in hype after Bryan Gan 老师 from Lady First Singapore (女人我最大新加坡), Bryan Gan, has requested and designed a custom ice cream flavor that is healthy and consisting of only real fruits, it is not hard to see why this place is still packed indoors with a long queue outside before closing hours.

Besides offering complimentary iced water, they also offer iced gem biscuits here!

 

 
The Waffles with Salted Caramel ($6.50) comes in a nice serving! Hearing that they have great waffles before coming, I have to agree that this is one of the better waffles I have had so far. Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, and the Salted Caramel ice-cream (which is one of their newest flavors) tasted just right as well

 
If you are around the Bukit Gombak area, why not make a visit here? The ice cream and waffles here are certainly worth queuing for!

Great New York Pizza Smile Dec 17, 2013

One slice of pizza is about 10 inch, and is $5.40 for the classic range and $6.80 for the specialty range

 
The Roast Duck Pizza is rich on flavour and is generous with the amount of roast duck used into making the pizza. A very locally-infused flavour.

 
The Seafood Pizza is great. The taste of squid is very apparent amongst the other seafood available.

 
The Hot-Shot Spicy Drumlets tries to replicate the original buffalo wings. While not being exactly near in terms of spiciness and size, this still tasted rather spicy.

 
If you want an alternative to other fast foods around, this is a place to consider if you are within the Somerset area.

Great cafe at Dhoby Ghaut! Smile Dec 17, 2013

The Profiterole is a must order. Covered with chocolate ganache and whipped cream on top of a crusty pastry base, this is rather soft and flavourful.

 
The Flat White is the cup of coffee to order if you do not want your coffee to be less strong tasting.

 
The Kith Macchiato, being their signature drink, consist of a single shot of espresso, filled with a layer of foam, cocoa and topped with a marshmallow. This tasted great though if you expected a normal cup of macchiato, do be prepared to skip this.

 
The Coconut Macaron is one of their creations. This is crumbly with bits of grated coconut falling out with every bite. Great if you are ordering one to try (but not have more than that)

 
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Kith Macchiato, Coconut Macaron

Ever feeling like having a ricebox whenever you are in Taiwan? Good news, it’s now available in Singapore. The leading ricebox chain in Taiwan, Woo Ricebox, has opened its first outlet in Ocean Financial Centre. The outlet here is managed by Royal T Group, who also manages leading milk tea chain Gong Cha.

 
The Woo Pork Chop Rice Box & Homemade Wintermelon Tea is great. The premium short-grain rice is specially imported from Chihshang, and comes with seasonal vegetables, pickles, half a braised egg and a main meat item (in this case being the pork chop). The portion of the pork chop is big and it is also meaty and juicy. Their wintermelon tea is also homemade and is refreshing to have while having the ricebox. One thing to note is the food is slightly on the dry side (which should be the case to prevent the food from getting soggy, especially when you are travelling around so your food will still taste great after that)

 

 
To get a reminisce of Taiwanese food, do come here as this place does it close enough to the riceboxes you can get in transit while in Taiwan.

The Third Wave Coffee Movement Smile Dec 16, 2013

The Hot Chocolate is excellent as the right amount of milk added ensured that the bitter taste of the cocoa is barely tasted while making it a warm and invigorating drink to have.

 
It is a great combination of coffee and milk taste for this Caffe Latte, as the bitter taste of the coffee is quickly covered by the milk and retaining its strong taste.

 
The Smoked Salmon Sandwich consist of a French Atlantic smoked salmon placed on a toasted country loaf, topped with garden greens, red onions with a citrus vinaigrette. The smoked salmon is cooked nicely and the loaf is toasted nicely.

 
The Eggs Benedict is well executed. The poached eggs is served with ham on an english muffin and is drizzled with hollandaise sauce and garden greens. The poached eggs was made perfectly as the yolk was runny and as I started to have my first bite the yolk broke off. The english muffin nicely complemented the eggs.

 
This place is within proximity to Botanic Gardens, the Bukit Timah campus of NUS and Gleneagles Hospital. If you’re around these areas, this place is a great place to have a cuppa coffee.
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Eggs Benedict
