Hay, Gelato–Great tasting gelatos and waffles in Bedok!

Hay, have you been to Hay, Gelato yet? A whole bunch of ice-cream cafes opened up in the last few months including Hay, Gelato which is located in Bedok. For too long, I’ve felt that there are not enough cafes in the Eastern Eastern part of Singapore, ie Bedok and further East. But finally things are changing, with the opening of Hay, Gelato, An Acai Affair, Haute & Cauld etc. Unfortunately though, still no large café where you can get proper brunch/café food.

Anyway back to Hay, Gelato. They are owned by the same people who run Brine and the shuttered Laneway Market. Hay Gelato boasts premium gelatos infused with smoky flavours. You can find interesting flavours here like Pandan Lemongrass, Uji Matcha, Preserved Orange Peel and Brown Sugar Rosemary.

Jewel Changi Airport Cafes (Full list)

Have you been to see Jewel Changi Airport yet? I must say this building is pretty amazing and has literally been the talk of the town and on everyone’s Instagram feeds in the past few days. Don’t worry if you didn’t manage to get the preview tickets, because Jewel opens officially to the public on 17 April 2019. Also, don’t be too afraid of the crowd. Yes, it is crowded but Jewel is SO HUMONGOUS, it’s easy to find spaces where there isn’t a crowd.

There is still space to find a seat at most cafes and restaurants because firstly there are so many, more than 280 F&B outlets, and secondly, most people are there to just take in the sights and of course get that perfect shot of the mesmerising HSBC Rain Vortex. Don’t you call it a fountain or even a waterfall because those words do not accurately describe its scale and magnificence. This is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall at 40m so give it its due respect and call it the Rain Vortex.

The only place where I thought it was truly crowded without an empty seat in sight was the lower two basement floors housing most of the casual eateries. But there are many other F&B’s dotted around Jewel’s upper levels, cafes and casual eateries included, so if you want to skip the queue, you know where to go.

Here’s a list of all the cafes available at Jewel Changi Airport. Glad to report there are quite a few new to Singapore names.

Hei Kim Cafe – Under the radar cafe in the East?

Hei Kim Cafe has been open for over a year now but based on my Instagram feeds, I hardly see people going there. Which is a bit of a pity because there are precious few cafes in the East of Singapore. (Don’t mention those cafes in Lavender because those are almost city centre already). I’m talking about East East. Singapore cafes in the East, please email me, I will try to give a shout out to you, because friendly neighbour here wants the East to have more cafes!

Hei Kim Cafe (2)

Anyway, Hei Kim Cafe scores on a few points. For one, their coffee-based drinks are pretty affordable at $4 for a cappucino, flat white, latte etc. Very few cafes in Singapore offer this pricing. The cafe is also quite spacious, the tables are not squeezed next to each other, of course this would change if the cafe was booming. Some parts of the cafe are a bit more industrial looking, some parts more retro, so this might attract the Instagram crowd. Lots of bright sunlight coming in, which is always a plus point for me. And who doesn’t love a window countertop shot. There is a piano there, which they allowed us to use, of course again may not be possible if the cafe is crowded.

And what about the food? Some hits and misses in terms of pricing and taste. If you order smartly, you might be able to keep your dish at $12 nett. Scroll down further for the food review and more pictures!
