Cake Delivery Singapore – Get a cake at 12 midnight?!

Cake Delivery Singapore contacted me awhile back to ask me if I would like to try their cakes. I scrolled through their website and was instantly intrigued by the Build Your Own Cake concept. No it’s not a cake that you assemble yourself, although that would be interesting and fun too.

Build Your Own Cake is a cake where instead of choosing just 1 flavour, you can actually cobble together 10 – 12 different flavours. If you get the 8 inch cake, you get to choose the flavours for 10 slices. If you get the 9.5 inch cake, you get to choose the flavours for 12 slices.

Thank Goodness It’s Seafood – Nasi Ulam jazzed up!

This is my second time collaborating with the Thank-Goodness-It’s (TGI) concept where they present a different culinary concept every couple of months. After the previous rendition which was Nasi Lemak, this time round, It’s Nasi Ulam 2.0. This is the brainchild of Gastrogig, and they have yet again tied up with Chef Shen Tan who is famous for her twice-steamed Nasi Lemak and sambals.

Makan for 4 set – $108

Now the first thing that always comes to mind is why pay so much more for something that you could get for cheaper at the hawker centre or some casual eatery. The thing is, if you already have a favourite Nasi Ulam eatery that you always patronise, and you just want something similar, then you’ll find it difficult to justify paying a premium.

Pink Fish at Jewel Changi Airport – It’s all about salmon!

[Media Invite]

If you are at Jewel Changi Airport and looking for a kid-friendly restaurant to dine at, do check out Pink Fish. Pink Fish is a casual fast food chain from Norway specialising in salmon dishes. They offer burgers, poke bowls, a soup and sides. Although you have to order at the counter like at McDonalds, the poke bowls especially don’t look like fast food.

Pink Fish at Jewel Changi Airport - Crispy Cod Nuggets

They have recently pushed out a couple of kids dishes at pretty wallet friendly prices. They have this cod nuggets with potato chips that goes for $7.90. Add $4 to get a juice and ice cream from Obsessive Chocolat Desire Ice Cream Cafe. The cod nuggets look deep fried but they are actually grilled. Kids all just somehow gravitate towards nuggets, mine included, and it makes me feel more assured that while I’m giving my kiddo a meal that he loves, it is healthier than the average fried food. In case you think these cod nuggets look enticing, yes they are actually pretty good, relatively crisp exterior and actual fish encased within as opposed to some minced patty with minimal fish. In fact if you are a small eater, you could order that and perhaps a couple of sides as your meal.

8 Durian– Fresh durian delivered to your doorstep de-husked

[Media Collaboration]

I have always been a bit apprehensive about purchasing durians. During my younger days, my father would be the one to procure the durians. It was a pity he did not take me along, but I guess he would simply purchase from his favourite durian shops or sources in Geylang. I have never purchased durians myself and would be totally clueless as to the correct price to pay so as not to be ripped off. Not to mention that good durian stalls are usually not conveniently located.

Lately, I was asked to try out 8 Durian, and online purveyor of the King of Fruits. They have their own durian plantation in Pahang, where fresh shipments of durians will be delivered to Singapore twice a day. In a way, I was relieved not to have to face any rough and tough durian seller. Just click click click online to choose my durians. It may not be the cheapest around, but I like the fact that I don’t have to haggle.

8 Crabs Seafood Restaurant – Fresh wild crabs for delivery!

[Media Collaboration]

During the Circuit Breaker period, I was invited to check out 8 Crabs Seafood Restaurant. Crab restaurants are aplenty in Singapore but I found out that 8 Crabs Seafood Restaurant is the only company in Singapore using grade AAA premium Sri Lankan sourced wild crabs. The crabs are supposedly meatier, tastier, bigger and less watery as compared to farmed crabs. To ensure freshness, these crabs are caught, air-flown, prepared and delivered to to each customer within 12 hours. Read more about why wild caught crabs are better here.

I went to check out their website and I noticed that the crabs comes in various sizes from from L, XL and XXL. I was torn between getting L or XL which is $20 more because those who eat crabs often will know that a large part of the crab comprises of shell. And if you get too small a crab, some of the flesh may be inaccessible or stuck.
