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.

C Cafe at Joo Chiat – New minimalist cafe at Joo Chiat with good coffee

Was itching to visit Joo Chiat as I haven’t been in the longest time. Joo Chiat boasts a number of cafes including

  • Homeground Coffee Roasters
  • Choice Cut Goods + Coffee
  • Sinpopo Brand
  • Ninethirty

and the one that opened a couple of months ago, C Cafe. Sinpopo Brand and Ninethirty are both concepts by Awfully Chocolate, and have both been there for nearly a decade. Kudos to Awfully Chocolate for lasting so long in a fickle F&B industry.

C Cafe (2)

I had high hopes for C Cafe, given that it was almost full on a Tuesday morning at 9.30am. Seriously, don’t people need to work? Although a couple were deep in thought typing or scribbling away, most of the patrons were there to dine with friends or family.  We managed to snag one of the last seats at the minimalist white themed C Cafe.

Kraft Kitchen – New Halal Eatery in Tampines!

Checked out a Halal neighbourhood restaurant today in Tampines. It’s called Kraft Kitchen and it recently opened. I was hoping for neighbourhood friendly prices ie, preferably less than $10 or around $10 for a main course. Unfortunately most main courses were $15 and above but I did manage to settle for the Beef Rendang Pot Pie which costs $13 and sounded really promising.

The Beef Rendang Pot Pie looked really appetising when it arrived, with its shiny cap of puff pastry. Cut through that to reveal chunks and chunks of beef in a soupy stew. The beef was pretty tender and I managed to finish all the pieces. I’m not really sure if the taste of the dish reminds me of rendang, Also it was a little too soupy. Perhaps "rendang-inspired" might be a better name. It was not bad as a beef pot pie, but I wanted the rendang spice kick!

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.

If you’re looking for the Jurassic Mile article, click on that link.

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 (now known as Hub & Spoke Carpark). 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.

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.
