Crab & Burger – Crab-Themed Burger Delivery Service Helmed by Ex-Head Chef of Burger & Lobster (Media)

The great thing about cloud kitchens is being able to indulge in restaurant-quality foods without the hassle of having to get dressed and step out of your home. 

Opened three months ago, Crab & Burger aims to plug a gap in Singapore’s burger scene where beef-based goods are aplenty, but with options far and few between for seafood lovers.

I was able to check out Mon Cerise Patisserie during its month-long stint at Baker X at Orchard Gateway, a project designed to give aspiring home-based bakers a taste of managing a physical shopfront. 

Mon Cerise Patisserie is an online French patisserie founded by home baker Cherry Chiu, who bid the corporate world goodbye and earned her baking chops at Le Cordon Bleu in London. The result is a range of dainty, handmade pastries that change every month!

Whites Bakery – Fat Macarons, Basque Cheesecakes, and Matcha Cookies with Islandwide Delivery

Some things are just better when they’re bigger. Fat macarons, or “fatcarons 뚱카롱” as they’re affectionally known, originated in South Korea where pastry chefs began inserting all sorts of thick, heavy fillings instead of the typically thinner, cream fillings between the macaron shells. Now available in Singapore, thanks to some enterprising home bakers, one can only guess how crazy creative these fat macarons will get!
