Lunch at Two Bakers

With my usual lunch buddies, we went to try the lunch meals at Two Bakers at Horne Road, Singapore after the January’s pay was in. A colleague and myself loved to visit this cafe for desserts, their cakes are impressive and some of them are pretty nice and tasted well.

It was not crowded on the day we visited the cafe and we were sitting at the last table of the back of the restaurant. The table is brightly lighted up with natural sunlight, I did not take any pictures while sitting at this table, to show you all. However, I can tell you, the place is quiet, bright and it is a good place for instagramable pictures, but it faces the kitchen, so it is a little messy in a way.

Back to the food I ordered under the Lunch Menu on that day was the Big Island Soba Bowl. It consists of cold soba, a small piece of pan fried salmon, few pieces of tuna, corns and edamames as vegetables and a poached egg on top. It sauces with avocado sauce and Japanese sesame sauce.

Initially I did not mix the sesame sauce at the bottom of the bowl, I just mixed the soba with some avocado sauce. It tasted plain, of course. It is recommended to mix well with the sauce and nicely break the poached egg on top of the soba. By just having the sesame sauce toward the end of the meal would make the soba tasted salty.

The salmon and tuna are good, well tasted and nicely presented, but the tuna was quite salty. The salt and pepper seemed to be too much on the thinly sliced tuna.

And the rest are pretty healthy ingredients, the edamame and corns.

It is a simple and healthy dish but need to reduce the saltiness level to make it more balanced.

After the meals, we ordered two pieces of cakes, the Yuzu Lemon Tart and the Matcha Passionfruit. I will share these cakes in my next blog. I guess it is good to stop visiting Two Bakers for a while and wait for the new menu for desserts. I am looking forward to see and try their new creative creations.

Lady M

Lady M, 3 Gateway Drive, #02-25/26 Westgate, Singapore 608532.

After the team lunch at the Din Tai Fung, my boss asked for a dessert place for second round. I did not expect there would be a second round, therefore, I did a quick search for desserts around the JEM and Westgate. Since, West side of Singapore is my less travelled place and I am not a dessert person, finding a good dessert place gives me some challenges.

Finally, we settled down at Lady M at Westgate. Lucky the place was able to accommodate large group of people. Initially the waitress wanted us to sit on the high table, which we rejected and asked them to combine some of the tables for us at one corner.

Lady M, specialized on mille crepe cakes which was said to be no less than twenty paper-thin handmade crepes layered with ethereal light pastry cream. They are  using the combination of French pastry techniques with Japanese etiquette of precision, Lady M prides itself on creating fresh and finest cakes.

They do offer set of two cakes with 2 drinks of your choices. During our visit, it was March, the Japanese sakura season, they serve specially made Sakura berry mille crepe cake.

The strawberry pastry cream layered on the the twenty thinned layer crepes. It tastes slightly sweet toward the end, and I do not recall if I tasted the sakura floral smell. If you do not like the favoured cake, you can always go for their signature cake, the Original Crepe Cake.

They do offer normal type of cakes. One of them is the chocolate cake which my colleague ordered and I tried a small bite. It is very rich chocolate cake. My personal preference after trying most of them is the Matcha crepe cake.

If you are going there with a group of people, I would not suggest you to order too many set of cakes because you may end up repeating the same cakes among your friends. Besides that, the portion of the cake is good enough for sharing.

Richmond Bakery

We did not complete the whole Bruny Island trip because partial of the road in the island was closed for construction work. Half way through the road down to south, we decided to make a U-turn and head back to the port and board the next ferry back to the mainland. There was a long queue for the ferry because it was approaching off work time.

While waiting for the ferry to begin its journey, we googled for our tea break location. We have plenty of choice and we chose to head down to Richmond, which is a city rich of the historical buildings.

Upon reaching the mainland, we drove to the Richmond Bakery to have our tea break with all my friends. It was raining drizzling when we reached the bakery shop and a few couple of people sitting inside the shop having their teas and pies.

The bakery shop did not have many choices left for us to choose. We placed our ordered and tried each of almost everything that they are still serving. It included pies, scone, muffins and cakes. As for drinks, we tried their hot chocolate, hot teas and one of their cold drink.

It is a lovely top view picture of our tea time at Richmond Bakery. Again, these are shared among us. The taste of all the above is just normal. If want to compare the pies with Jackman and McRoss, I will say, let drive all the way back to their bakery and eat there instead.

Thinking that we shall have a decent meal for dinner that night, we did not spend too much time eating here and drive back to our home to prepare dinner. We have bought some pizza dough and we can make our own pizza from the oven.

Perhaps, in my next visit to Tasmania, I shall travel to this place to see the historical building and the beautiful scenery in this quiet town.

Soufflé De Nuage
The fluffy egg soufflé on top of the thin layered of the tomato fried rice with ham and mushroom. It has plenty of thick ham on the right side and I hardly see any mushrooms in the fried rice. It is slightly imbalance.

Overall, it is a delicious, worth to try and very filling because it is slightly creamy too.

Original Soufflé Pancakes
It is a regular plain pancake, very thick, soft and not very fluffy as I expected. The maple syrup and the pancake blend well and the whole piece of pancake is not too sweet.

The Tiramisu Hero


One of the cafe hopping destination if you are around the Lavender MRT station, The Tiramisu Hero. You can try here as they offer many different tiramisu flavours.

Since the medium size has sold out, my two friends ordered the large to try and I just hopped on to try one scoop as I am not really into Tiramisu and having the large one will further making me food coma. They chose the original and Horlicks flavours.
The original flavour does have alcohol and the rest do not. The original is just nice.

2am Dessertbar

On the week before the Christmas Day, I got my friend a Christmas gift and I sent a Whatsapp message to my friend asking if we could meet up before the Christmas. Since the only available time to meet up was on the same day and I had a dinner with another friend, I asked if we could meet up for yam cha later at 10PM. Yes, my friend said okay.

I rushed home at 9.30PM after finished the dinner with my friend at Tampines One and sent my friend off to the MRT station. I needed to prepare the Christmas to bring along to meet my friend.

I was brought to Holland Village and I guessed it was my first time be there as I could not recognise the shops around there. I remembered I was there for a Mexican food too but I could not remember which road.

We ended at this open-till-late-night desserts bar which is located at the 2nd floor of the 2 storey shoplot. It is an atas desserts bar and they have some desserts which are delicious according to other food bloggers. It is a fine dessert dining.

It took us quite sometimes to decide what to order for desserts. The menu listed what desserts and pair with which wines. Yes, they do serve wine here. Finally I suggested to try the waffle together.

The signature, 2am: fonffle, a 64% chocolate fondant waffle, blood orange sorbet. It is a pretty unique waffle that I ever tried. The strong chocolate mixes with the sorbet bring the sweetness to the next level and pair it with hot coffee Latte would be a good combination to neutralise it.


I have no idea why, however, the waitress informed us that the minimum spending at this desserts bar is $14.00 onward when we asked for table for 2 person. Perhaps, next time we do not wear sandals out for desserts.

Address: 21A Lorong Liput, Holland Village, Singapore.
Opening hours: 2pm – 2am.

Coffea Coffee

Evening tea, Starbucks? No, let us try something other than Starbucks and Coffee Bean. Coffea Coffee then. I was at Pavilion with two of my friends after our buffet lunch at Mitasu Japanese Restaurant. Since it is pretty hard for me to cafe-hopping in KL nowadays, I suggested to try something else than the common coffee shops.

Coffea Coffee locates at the top floor of Pavilion offers a wide range of cakes and drinks. I chose to have my favourite, Caffe Latte. We ordered two cakes and one of it called the Lemon Cheese Cake with Oats. The cake is very filling and the coffee tastes normal only.

There are some crowds during the time we stepped into this cafe. Since is it located at the open area, it is quite dull to go without light music.
