Korio @ Far East Square, Telok Ayer – Grilled Sandwiches and New York Inspired Brioche Donuts

A fairly new entrant to Far East Square, Korio has been taking Singapore’s F&B scene by storm with its mouthwatering grilled sandwiches and New York inspired brioche doughnuts.

On my first visit to Korio’s hole-in-the-wall sized kiosk one weekend afternoon, nearly all sandwiches were sold out, and the display case was wiped clean of doughnuts. It took me another visit, also early on a weekday, to finally score those legendary sweets. Looking at the large crowd and 1-hour waiting times, one could easily forget that eating out ever took a hit from 2020’s coronavirus pandemic!

[CLOSED] Seasons Bistro @ TripleOne Somerset (Sugar)

Update June 2020: Seasons Bistro has closed.

To mark the first weekend of the year, we headed to town for brunch and a movie – hey, what better time to check out new places and things than now? 😉

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies left me with mixed feelings; I grew up on Peter Jackson’s adaptation of the LOTR trilogy and am a huge fan of epic fantasy films, but somehow the final installation didn’t appeal to me and felt overstretched at times. Though as always, the CGI was amazeballs.

That said, it’s time to move on to the main point of today’s post – our yummy brunch at Seasons Bistro which we decided to reward ourselves with after waking up and early for this 2.5 hour movie!

Krispy Kreme @ Income at Raffles Opening (Invite)

Having bound myself to a desk job for the past eleven months, there’s nothing that I crave more than a sugar rush every day. There’s something about the sweet, sweet taste of a sugary treat that makes it so gratifying amid impending deadlines. 😉

Luckily for office dwellers at Singapore’s Central Business District, Krispy Kreme has opened its second outlet at Income at Raffles, meaning that doughnut-craving customers around Raffles can get their fix any time, whether it’s a quick snack between meetings or an after work binge. As expected, Krispy Kreme’s second store opened to much fan fare, including a public teaser and a couple of social media campaigns that built up to it (more on that later!).
