Butter Bean – Super Instagrammable cafe with Kopi and Teh lattes at only $3.20!

Ever wished that cafe prices would not be as exorbitant as they are now? With Breadtalk Group’s latest concept, this has become a reality, and hopefully a trend in the near future. Check out Butter Bean, which are currently located at Funan and Vivocity. The sunshiny cafe offers  modern Nanyang kopi/teh beverages brewed using "Western" methods. Food served here includes pocket sandwiches, open-faced toasts, baked goods, and mains, all freshly prepared daily on premise.

Hub & Spoke Cafe outside Changi Airport Terminal 2

Super delighted to find that a cafe has opened in the far East! Cafes have been sprouting all over Singapore, but precious few in the far Eastern side of Singapore, ie Bedok, Simei, Tampines and Pasir Ris. Here’s a short list though.

Hub & Spoke Cafe (8)

Hub and Spoke Cafe has recently opened at Changi Airport. It’s address is officially at Terminal Two, but really it is situated in the outside space between Changi Airport Terminal Two and Jet Quay. It is directly opposite the open-air South Car Park. If you are coming via the MRT though, you will have to walk through the entire T2, past the entire T2 Carpark and get out into the open. Follow the red bike path, as they say.

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.

South Union Park Cafe – Pastas are still good

Every year since Edward was born, we have the same problem of birthday celebration fatigue. We have 3 birthdays in February, the first being Edward, followed by my father, and finally myself. Being the baby of the family, naturally all efforts are on Edward’s birthday, and said effort namely coming from myself. By the time my birthday rolls around, I’m lost for ideas as to where to celebrate. This year, given the COVID situation, all the more we didn’t want to have a protracted celebration in a crowded location. In addition to watching out for potential sneezers and coughers, Edward has absolutely no self-restraint and will touch things and suddenly touch his face or rub his eyes!

So it was great when I saw on the Burpple App that South Union Park was offering 1-for-1 discounts on their main dishes. (Click on the link if you want a 30% discount code to purchase the Burpple App) I’ve been to South Union Park before almost 4 years back. Edward was still a baby back then! It’s nestled in a quiet neighbourhood in Kembangan, and you have to drive to get there or it’ll be a very sweaty 10 minute walk from the Kembangan MRT station as the walk will be mostly unsheltered.
