AVOCADO GULA MELAKA CAKE

"I love this the most among all the avocado desserts in Singapore because the gula melaka frosting is exceptionally light and aromatic, complementing the moist and dense cake layers very well. Butter is replaced by avocado, making this a healthy treat."

SALMON AND SOBA

"Perfectly cooked salmon that is crisp on the outside, yet tender inside, atop warm soba tossed in a tangy citrus teriyaki sauce. Every slurp of the soba is just so comforting."

SALTY CHOCOLATE RUM-RAISIN

"The dessert consists of a mix of chocolate, sea salt caramel, rum and raisin and cocoa nib ice cream. The cocoa nib ice cream was undoubtedly the highlight. Slightly bitter, yet creamy and nutty, it provided a great balance to the richness of the chocolate."

CLASSIC CARBONARA (LUNCH SET)

"Carbonara may seem like an easy fix but it's not. This classic carbonara is not overwhelming on the taste buds - the creamy sauce in cabonara can sometimes be overpowering. Best of all, at $9.80 nett, it's a steal for lunch in town."
