Brown Butter Cafe @ Forum The Shopping Mall – Photogenic Cafe with Avocado-Centric Dishes and Drinks

It’s no secret that I absolutely love anything and everything to do with avocadoes. I love avocado on toast. I love it in a smoothie. And if I could, I would absolutely curl up in an avocado half and sleep in it.

So when Brown Butter, a pastel-themed cafe with avocado and beetroot-centric dishes opened its doors at Forum The Shopping Mall, I knew I had to pay it a visit.

BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers @ Havelock II, Chinatown – Unapologetically Badass Takeaway Bakery with a Daily Changing Menu

BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers, or Backyard Bakers as they are affectionally known to regulars, may be one of Singapore’s best kept foodie secrets.

Operating out of a takeaway kiosk at Havelock II near Chinatown, BUNDT is The Backyard Bakers’ sole physical space, following the recent closure of its GRAZE outlet in West Coast. This minimally-decorated joint is so tight (think can’t swing your ponytail; let alone your cat kind of tight), making the quality of the food they churn out on a daily basis, nothing short of a minor miracle.
