Maltby Crumble Bar - Build Your Own Apple Crumble at Singapore's FIRST Crumble Bar!

IMG_8537

IMG_8406

Inspired by The Humble Crumble in London, Maltby Crumble Bar is my latest venture! It's essentially an extension of my ice cream and cookie brand, Twice Young. When I was living in London, I visited The Humble Crumble in Borough Market a few times. I loved the concept, and how you can dress up your crumble however you like — with custard, drizzles, and a variety of toppings. I starting working on this  concept when I returned from my 13.5 month vacation in Europe and the UK with my dog, Snuffles, and tested it at Baker X at Orchard Central in December 2023.

I decided to name the concept Maltby, because we were actually living near Maltby Street in London, and I loved the area! Also, my dog is a Maltese and one of our favourite countries on our trip was Malta! It just seemed very apt, and the name sounds cute too haha

I spent a few months perfecting the recipes for both the stewed apples, and French butter crumble. It's sad that we can't get Bramley apples here, so we are using Granny Smith apples. For now, we only have apple crumble, but we are thinking of creating a berry crumble and a banana one in the future. At Maltby Crumble Bar, you can jazz up your apple crumble with ice cream, custard, drizzles and a myriad of sprinkles such as chocolate crunchy pearls and wildflowers. 

Twice Young's signature ice cream flavours will be available on rotation, and our signature brown butter cookies, that we have sold tens of thousands of, will be available as well. 

Maltby Crumble Bar is currently taking residency at Pinhole Coffeebar at 27 Purvis Street, #01-02, until the end of March

21 Cafes in the Far West of Singapore That You've Never Heard Of

photo The Playground Coffee 1.jpg
Here are 21 cafes in the far west of Singapore that you probably have never heard of. And we mean the extreme west, like Pioneer to Dover so cafes in Holland Village and Bukit Timah are not covered in this listicle. The independent cafes featured are not part of any chains and are not located in shopping malls. If you're planning a cafe-hopping trip to the west side, our little list might be of help!

Oriole Coffee - Truffle Pizza, Truffle Ravioli, Truffle Scrambled Egg Burger & Delightful Christmas Drinks in Orchard!

Oriole_coffee_orchard_christmas_menu 

In anticipation of the holiday season, Oriole Coffee at Pan Pacific Serviced Suites in Orchard has come up with a few trufflelicious dishes and delightful festive drinks! The reasonably-priced festive highlights are available from now till 28 February. And, if you're a self-proclaimed truffle lover, you should most definitely schedule a visit!

I have been going to Oriole Coffee since 2008. I remember always getting their beef cheek tagliatelle or fish and cheeks! Their Taisho cold brew is my go-to whenever I need a caffeine fix in town. 13 years old, and still going strong, that must say something about this joint that withstood the test of time.

lady_m_champagne_bar_ion_orchard_afternoon_tea 
Lady M is a household name. Most of all would have at least tried their signature mille crepe cakes, which  the brand is famous for, but have you tried their savoury items before? Well, I haven't, until I visited their newest and sixth outlet in Singapore, Lady M Champagne Bar, on the third level of ION Orchard. Furnished with plush seats, marble tables, and gold finishings, Lady M's first ever champagne bar in the world promises a luxurious tea time where patrons can indulge in delicious champagne, exquisite cakes and outlet-exclusive signatures.

Raffles Courtyard Teams Up With FatFuku to Present Outstanding Modern Peranakan Dishes

fatfuku_singapore_rosti_meesiam
If you still haven't scored a highly-coveted seat at the table of FatFuku (Annette Tan), you might find yourself dancing to the news of her signature dishes making an appearance at Raffles Courtyard's second installation of collaborations with private dining chefs. Phase 2 Heightened Alert definitely dampened all our spirits, and FatFuku's exciting collaboration with Raffles Courtyard was put on a semi-hold, as a few of her dishes were made available for delivery via Raffles Grab and Go. Now that the restrictions have been gently lifted, and we can dine out in a small party of 2, it's time to make a reservation at Raffles Courtyard, because trust me, you wouldn't want to miss what FatFuku has in store. And you only have a little shy of 2 weeks (till 2 July) to snag a taste of Annette's inspiring and impressive modern takes on traditional Peranakan family recipes.

The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar - New Weekday 3 Course Lunch for Just $42++!

 photo The Dempsey Cookhouse and bar salted caramel icecream.jpg
The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar has been popular since the very day they opened their doors, and for good reason. The gorgeous space is perfect for girly brunch dates, and romantic dinners — truly a venue for all occasions. Having been to The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar when they first opened, I have fond memories of this place and even fonder memories of their Salted Caramel Icecream which, needless to say, left a lasting impression. This time round, I'm back to check out their weekday set lunch menu. Do I have to tell you that I was beyond excited?

Artichoke - The Least Authentic Middle Eastern Restaurant in Singapore Serves Really Good Food

 photo Artichoke singapore middle eastern dinner.jpg

I first visited the funky Artichoke back in 2010, the year that they made Sculpture Square their home. I fell in love with their meat candy, which I made multiple return trips for. Fast forward a couple of years, I still visit every now and then for brunch. Strangely, I've never been here for dinner. And I never knew how much I was missing out on until my recent dinner here, which was kind of mind-blowing to be honest. I guess there's a reason why this 9-year-old outfit by Chef Bjorn Shen is #stillnotdead.

 photo Maggie Joans mediterranean.jpg
If you're a foodie, you'll definitely have, at the very least, heard of Maggie Joan's. Well, it was my first time here, and I have to say that I was blown away. Chef Seumas Smith, the new head chef, has popped over from Moosehead, and is now at the helm of Maggie Joan's. I really like the food at Moosehead, so I know that I was in for a treat at Maggie Joan's too. Using the finest seasonal ingredients from artisanal producers in the creation of every dish, where every component is made from scratch, Chef Seumas brings out the best of every ingredient in his own magical way. I assure you that you'll walk out of Maggie Joan's utterly satisfied, and already planning for a return visit.

Origin Grill might be relatively new, but it certainly is here to stay. The solid outfit, which sits in Shangri-La Hotel, prides itself on putting some of the rarest beef on the plates of discerning diners. Many come here for the Shiro Kin Full Blood Wagyu and Snow-Aged Full Blood Wagyu, but do you also know that the chefs whip up really delicious pastas too? In addition, on top of having quite a spectacular collection of wines, and range of decadent sweet treats, Origin Grill goes a step further to please with an executive set lunch menu($34/$45) that can be described with just one word — unbelievable.

Regent Tea Lounge - An Indulgent Weekday Afternoon Tea in the Heart of Orchard

photo Regent Tea Lounge afternoon tea 9.jpg
Having tea on a weekday afternoon is not something that we can do very often. Hence, when we get the chance to kick back and enjoy a luxurious afternoon tea session, we have to make sure that we choose wisely, don't we? The weekday three-tier afternoon tea at Regent Singapore, which is affordably priced at $45/pax, promises to please your palate and fill you to the brim. The tea starts at 12pm, and runs all the way to 5pm. While I didn't spend the full 5 hours here, those who plan to have a long catch-up session with their beloved girl pals will definitely enjoy their time in the revamped colonial garden setting. While the typical afternoon tea sets offer just the stated set, and drinks, Regent has made it their top priority to ensure that guests are very well taken care of with the inclusion of a mini buffet that features mini pastries, salads, sandwiches, Italian cheeses and other small bites.

Moosehead - Extraordinary Mediterranean Cuisine in the CBD

 photo Moosehead Amoy 5.jpg
Telok Ayer Street is home to many restaurants but none stands out quite the way Moosehead does. A champion of Mediterranean cuisine, Moosehead continuously sends out hearty and delicious small plates which are built by Chef Seumas, who helms the kitchen. Chef's Seumas' creative mind and refined palate enables him to bring together different elements like they are all pieces that belong to the same jigsaw puzzle. Every dish is a beautiful ensemble of lovely flavours and a showcase of fine produce.

The Octopus($30) sees sliced tentacles of New Zealand octopus cooked sous-vide style and grilled on binchotan until the outer edges are crispy-crunchy. Crispy fried potato, red pepper puree, paprika, extra virgin olive oil and chives are part of the cast. The colourful dish is not just a sight to behold, but it will definitely please your palate too. I've had numerous grilled octopus dishes before, but they are often too charred for my liking. This was perfect, and quite possibly my favourite octopus dish to date.
