Kara Cafe & Dessert Bar now serves breakfast!

KARA Café & Dessert Bar at Bukit Timah, known for its popular Sogurt self-served frozen yogurt and iconic dishes like its Pork Belly Miso grain bowl and Matcha Berry Mochi Waffles, has just launched a breakfast menu for the first time. I was invited to Kara Cafe to sample the breakfast menu, which is available from 8am – 11.30am. My previous visit was a couple of years back when I sampled Kara Cafe’s main menu.

It was a wet and windy Sunday when I made my way to Kara Cafe. To be honest, I was wondering if I should postpone my visit since the forecast was for thundery showers for the first half of January. I had intended to kill 2 birds with one stone with this journey across the island, by visiting the nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, but that hope was washed away with the gloomy weather.

Berthold Delikatessen – Hidden gems at Arcade @ Capitol Kempinski

It’s unbelievable how crowded everywhere is on the weekends when we are supposed to be practicing social distancing. It’s like being let out of a two month jail sentence (circuit breaker) and we’re trying to catch up on lost time. Recession, job cuts, what recession?

Anyway, I was supposed to meet a couple of friends at Clinton Street Baking Co along Purvis street last Saturday. Lest you think I’m calling the kettle black, this was the first time I was out in town on a weekend. But due to a botched up booking, we had to quickly scramble for a new place to have lunch. But where, because every potential cafe would surely be fully booked, especially given a lower seating capacity during the Covid-19 pandemic.

I was at Raffles City so I kinda found myself gravitating towards Capitol Kempinski, while my friends who had already arrived at Clinton Bakery started throwing up other alternatives. Luckily I remembered that there is this chic stretch directly next to the Capitol Theatre that usually has a low footfall. This place is called Arcade @ Capitol Kempinski. It’s actually an extension of The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore.

On hindsight, no wonder the place looks so sophisticated. I’ve always thought that this place deserved more airtime. The area exudes a contemporary yet slightly whimsical vibe, thanks in part to a balcony overhang seating area for each restaurant. So much potential!

Better yet, the prices of the restaurants here are very attractive! There are 7 restaurants here. Each of them feature a weekday set lunch. For example, La Scarla Ristorante has a set lunch promo going at $19 for a 2-course meal. That’s a very affordable price for a prime location like this. Unfortunately, because of the upscale decor, most people shy away from Capitol thinking that it would be expensive to dine here. Certainly that was the first reaction from my friends when I suggested this place.  Doesn’t help too that it’s slightly hidden from the main road, and I don’t recall seeing any marketing of this place.

Koi Bubble Tea is available at Jewel Changi Airport for walk-in takeaways!

Currently, shops selling predominantly beverages are not supposed to be open due to the Circuit Breaker / Lockdown in Singapore. This means that most bubble tea shops are closed, unless they are located in a hawker centre/coffee shop or located within an outlet that also happens to sell food. So I was most surprised to see a queue at the Signature KOI shop at Jewel Changi Airport after visiting Fairprice Finest.

I went closer to check it out and it’s true, you can buy KOI bubble tea for takeaway yourself, no need to rely on delivery! That because this is Signature KOI, it means that they also sell other food such as cakes, macarons and pastries. Lucky me too, because it seems they only restarted operations today! If you follow me on my Instagram, you would have seen my instastories about it!
