Coffee in Singapore Part 2


I don’t understand why so many Malaysians say that food in Singapore sucks. I think they are just jealous of our neighbour. Just because they use ketchup in their “chow kwei tiau”, this fact was repeated over and over again. Well, there are just as many food in Malaysia that sucks ok. You just need to know where to find good decent food.

I just had some really good food in Singapore. From the cheap SGD3 fish-ball noodles to lovely frog-porridge, SGD10+ gourmet burgers to excellent desserts and coffee.

Unfortunately, i don’t have any photos of coffee to show. Evertime I see some really good coffee, I was too enthralled that I totally forgot to take any pic. Once I finished and have those wonderful after-taste that I realized that I did not take any photos.

Let’s start with BLACK.


This is BLACK @ 111 Somerset. Love their logo.


Their Afogato (the original is Chocolate Ice Cream) with dark chocolate shavings.
But I asked to replace the Chocolate with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
Their Vanilla ice cream is not very sweet which accentuate the taste from the espresso shots.


This plain looking “Honey Fig” Ice Cream is anything but plain.
Ok, it looks plain but the taste is really good with bits of fig inside.
As good as any Haagen Daz and priced lower too.


Banana Rum Crumble. Another must try.

Thank you Tony for the lovely treats. Can’t wait to come back for another visit.
Look for the Master Barista if you are going to Black (He is usually stationed at Black @ Hitachi Tower).
But if he is not around, I’m sure his apprentice is more than able to make you a cup of excellent coffee.

Next: Burgers… my favourite kinda food

Located @ 313 Somerset.
The name is HandBurger
. If you like good quality burgers, this is the place to go.
McD, Burger King and Carl’s Junior taste like Ramlee Burger in comparison.

My last stop for coffee before coming back to Malaysia.

Spend some time at Highlander Coffee for some sweet espresso.

The lovely Simonelli Aurelia in GREEN.

Had espresso, ristretto and a machiato. All great but the ristretto is the best.
Thank you to Phil, Cedric and Guo Li for the lovely time and all the coffee.

Bye-bye Singapore. I’ll be back.
