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.

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.

Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner–Restaurant quality food at cafe pricing plus those must-try sourdough waffles!

[Media Invite]

When you think “cafe” these days, what do you think of? Food quality doesn’t really come to mind. Sure they may have a couple or two star dishes, but more likely than not, the entire premise of that cafe is built upon being Instagrammable. Visit once or twice, and you’ve basically covered their entire menu of dishes worth eating. So it is a breath of fresh air, what Tiong Bahru Bakery has done to its Funan and Raffles City outlets.

Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner

These two outlets are now known as Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner, and offer a “slow food” approach, which is most unexpected coming from a chain F&B establishment. Whatever you thought you knew about Tiong Bahru Bakery, Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner is so much more.
