Catkin by Huishan @ Wilkie Road, Rochor – Elegant Dessert and Tea Experience Inspired by Local Flavours

While I’m not big on sweets, I never fail to gravitate toward plated desserts, especially for their fine details and craft. 

Catkin by Huishan is the latest space to launch its own line of locally-inspired desserts, led by ex-Willow head pastry chef, Soh Hui Shan. Situated within Twenty-Eight Cafe on Wilkie Road, Catkin appears to be a one-woman operation where you can watch your desserts assembled before you.

I got to know about Going Om, a hipster salad bar meets yoga studio during one of my daily “Where shall I order from today?” monologues with the office on Google Hangouts. Turns out this neat little joint has been operating out of their eclectically-themed premises in Haji Lane for awhile now, with regulars returning for their gigantic salads and desi fries.
