Hungry Planet x Eleven Strands Collab @ Yio Chu Kang Road, Serangoon – Plant-Based Meat Set Menu Available on 27 and 28 June 2020 (Media)

Plant-based meat alternatives sure are going places these days. Far from their rubbery, synthetic-tasting counterparts from earlier times, today’s options come pretty close to mimicking the real deal in terms of taste and texture.

In conjunction with Hungry Planet launching in Singapore this month, Eleven Strands has teamed up with this US-based brand to launch plant-based HungryPlanet®️ Set Menu ($25) exclusively on 27 and 28 June!

Boufé Boutique Cafe @ Phoenix Park, Tanglin Road – Cafe with Insanely Beautiful Cakes Closing end of June; Get Them Before They’re Gone

I rarely review places that are closing, but there was something alluring about Boufé Boutique Cafe that I couldn’t miss out on. Nestled far away from the hustle and bustle of city life, in the tranquil grounds on Phoenix Park, the six-year old establishment recently announced its impending closure following the end of its lease in the old-school building.

Cafe Coco @ Gardens by the Bay – Cold Brew Coffee with Islandwide Delivery; Pink Salt Chocolate and Midnight Mocha Added

One of the advantages of islandwide delivery is getting to sample all kinds of restaurants and cafes that I would normally be too lazy to make the trip for.

Last month, Cafe Coco pulled off a pretty commendable feat by pledging 100% of their proceeds for the latter part of May to the Singapore Red Cross, in spite of the dire situation faced by most, if not all F&B businesses. Located within the Supertree Food Hall at Gardens by the Bay, Cafe Coco is now looking to pull through the rest of Phase 1 by churning out cold brews for coffee aficionados across the country.

LUNA @ Amoy Street, Tanjong Pagar – Delicate Cakes and Sweet Treats in the CBD; Islandwide Delivery at $7

I may be working on the far end of Raffles Place now, but I’ll always be an Amoy Street gal at heart. There’s just something exciting about discovering new local joints in that hood that can’t quite be found anywhere else in Singapore. Arriving at this bustling mecca of local and foreign flavours two months ago was LUNA, a local patisserie chock full of artisanal cakes and other baked goods.

As you know what they say: no circuit breaker period is gonna stop me from trying new cafes and restaurants beyond the east side of Singapore! Especially with food delivery services making things more convenient for us diners.

Going Om @ Haji Lane, Bugis – Rustic Cafe with Hearty Salads and Bomb-Ass Fries; 30% off First-Time Deliveries and $3 off Soju

I’ll admit that staying home 24/7 this circuit breaker season in Singapore has got me feeling a tad sluggigh, a little down. But that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to eat healthy and treat our bodies well!

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.

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.

Brown Butter is the latest foodie venture by the team behind Benjamin Browns and Hana Japanese Restaurant, known for their insanely eye-catching creations like the OTT milkshakes and flying noodles. Expectations were definitely high when we visited.

Gather @ Raffles Hotel, City Hall – Kinfolk-esque French Crepe Cafe by the Team Behind PUNCH, Ronin, and The Plain

With the new decade, comes change. As we bade a quiet goodbye to hipster hideout Ronin in January, Raffles Hotel welcomed some a quaint new addition by the same team behind PUNCH and the defunct The Plain.

Simply named Gather, this old-school cafe cum retail space specialises in French-style crepes and galettes, along with a handful of baked goods and coffees.
