Le Cafe Confectionery & Pastry

There are few things in this world that are silky smooth and crunchy all at the same time.

Here are my top three:

1. Zha Liang/ Zha Leong – Dough Fritters wrapped in Rice Rolls.

2. Egg Tarts from Tong Heng.

3. Bean Curd Tarts.

You’ll see plenty of Zha Leongs in future posts, because I’ve been hunting down the best in Sg, and I’ve loved Tong Heng egg tarts since they started out from being sold at $0.90 till the $1.40 that they are now. Tempting little buggers are the ultimate sin whenever I’m in the Maxwell area.

And then there are these tempting cretins whenever I’m in the Middle Road area – which is pretty much every day now.

The Wooden Spoon

Wooden Spoon

UR has been taking up tons of my time these past two weeks, but if anything, it has given me a wealth of opportunity to meet the people behind humble establishments, to sample cuisines I’d otherwise never try, and – best of all – bumped up my chances of stumbling across hidden gems.

How I’ve managed to waltz by The Wooden Spoon the bajillion times I’ve made my way to Tom’s Palette is beyond me. I mean, it’s just right beside it! I’m talking about like 10cm away. Grab your cup of ice cream and shimmy over for $1 scones.

Good $1 scones.

Lordie, I want one now.
