Nasty Cookie – Actually quite good and not as sweet as it looks!

I wanted to do a shoutout on Nasty Cookie simply because I tried it recently and enjoyed it. Nasty Cookie has been around since October 2018, and opened their first brick-and-mortar store at Funan SG last year. You might seem to have heard about it recently, and that’s because they just opened their flagship outlet just outside Kaki Bukit MRT Station.

So what is Nasty Cookie. Okay aside from jokes on their name, they offer New York inspired (Levain cookie) gourmet jumbo cookies. Imagine the size of Mrs Field’s cookies but on steroids, ie puffed up and not flat. They claim that they are the only ones offering such NY inspired cookies, but given the proliferation of home bakers after the Circuit Breaker, I know I’ve seen many similar cookies.

HJH Maimunah Restaurant opens new mini outlet at Tampines Mall Food Court

The famous HJH Maimunah has opened a halal food court stall at Tampines Mall. It’s called HJH Maimunah Mini, but it’s anything but mini if you compare to the neigbouring stalls. In fact, it takes up two stalls side by side, one selling Nasi padang cooked dishes, the other selling things like Tauhu Goreng and snacks. Opened just last week, it is already seeing long queues.

Just in case you didn’t already know, HJH Maimunah was started in 1992 by Madam Mahiran Abdul Rahman with recipes from her late mother. The first and flagship 2 storey restaurant is at 11 Jalan Pisang, but they have since expanded to another outlet at Joo Chiat and since last week, the food court outlet at Tampines Mall. They also have a large catering arm.

In 2019, HJH Maimunah received the Michelin Bib Gourmand award.

At the Kampung Glam area, the two famous Nasi Padang outlets are Minang and HJH Maimunah. I’ve visited Minang at least 10 times throughout the years and loved the food there for its robust and flavoursome taste. I’ve only been to HJH Maimunah once, around 5 years ago, but felt that the food was just average and hence was not compelled to return again.

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.

Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg – Japanese A5 beef toasties with oozing cheese! 50% discount this weekend!

Have pictures of meaty sandwiches with oozing cheese been inundating your Instagram feed lately? They are probably pictures of Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg’s beef toasties. I must say those pictures called out to me so much, I went to see what’s the big deal today. Seeing those pictures reminded me of Fong Sheng Hao’s toasted sandwiches and perhaps even Shake Shack!

Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg Toasties  (4)

Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg is Singapore’s first fast casual farm-to-table restaurant specialising in premium quality Japanese A5 Wagyu Beef Hamburgs, and at affordable prices. The reason for the affordable prices (ie less than $10) is because the brand holds an exclusive partnership with award-winning Hidakami Ranch in Japan.

Fullerton Hotel Town Restaurant G’Day Sunday Brunch

The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore present a taste of Australia to mark the first anniversary of sister property The Fullerton Hotel Sydney. From 18 October to 30 November, guests can look forward to Aussie-themed, Singapore-inspired dining promotions that draw on the rich culinary cultures of both countries. Interestingly, the Fullerton Hotel Sydney also shares a similar history as a previous General Post Office.

I tried the G’Day Sunday Brunch at Fullerton Hotel’s Town Restaurant, which is only available on 18th and and 25th October. This is not the usual Sunday Brunch with a cursory nod to the Aussie-theme by featuring just a couple of Aussie-linked dishes. Many dishes feature ingredients brought in from Australia and there are also dishes that are quintessentially Australian. If you plough through all the Australian dishes, you would probably stagger out of the restaurant a very satisfied person.

Here’s a list of all the dishes that are Aussie-themed or feature ingredients from Australia:

  • Australian Brekkie
  • Australian Moreton Bay Bugs
  • Tasmania Mussels
  • Australian Peaches / Australian Beets
  • Australian King Fish Tiradito
  • Crackling Australian Pork Belly
  • Wok Fried Australian Yabbies
  • Australian Swimmer Crab
  • Slow-Roasted Australian Dorper Lamb Leg (My favourite!!)
  • Pan-flashed Stanbroke Australian Hanger Steak
  • Hickory-smoked BBQ Australian Pork Ribs
  • Cheeses such as King Island Dairy Ash Brie, Berry Creek Riverine Blue Chese
  • Anzac Biscuits, Pavlova, Lamingtons

and many more
