Flavour Flings Cafe @ Hougang Ave 1

Flavour Flings

Flavour Flings

Looking for a neighbourhood cafe around your area? Flavour Flings Cafe is well-known for their Salted Egg Yolk Croissants and is also halal certified. Conveniently located in Hougang Avenue 1, Flavor Flings is back with a new special menu! 

Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta

Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta

Firstly, we got to try Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta. A delicious Garlic Bruschetta infused with White Truffle oil, top it off with Mushroom Caviar, Tomato Cubes, Parmesan Cheese and Spring Onions. Truffle lovers will sure to find this satisfying as the flavor is very strong and aromatic! I find that the Bruschetta was very well made. Highly recommended to try it out!

Salted Egg Yolk Fries

Salted Egg Yolk Fries

For some lovely bites, we got their Salted Egg Yolk Fries. Drizzled with their in-house Salted Egg Yolk Sauce, the fries were also topped with their fragrant Buttered Cereals. I wasn’t expecting the buttery cereals, but it goes really well with the sauce! It reminds me of Cereal Butter Prawns.

Fling's Noodles V.2.0

Fling’s Noodles V.2.0

Next up, Fling’s Noodles Version 2.0. They have updated their signature Fling’s Noodle. Instead of Spaghetti, they use Fettuccine. Which, I prefer as the garlicky White Cream that is also infused with White Truffle Oil can now better cling onto the pasta. Rich and creamy. Yum! 

Vanilla and Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream Sundae

Vanilla and Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream Sundae

As for dessert, we got to try out Vanilla and Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream Sundae. I find that the Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream was a little icy. Yet, the sweet-scented Vanilla Ice Cream was palatable.

Creme Brulee

Lastly, it was one of my favorite, Creme Brulee. I love the fact that Flavour Flings had used a wider, shorter ramekins instead of the taller and smaller ones. This mean that there will be more caramelized sugar topping as the surface area will be larger! The cold custard cream isn’t too jelat and goes really well with the warm sweet caramelized sugar.

All in all, I really enjoyed being there in Flavour Flings. The ambiance was warm and cozy. Food was decent and satisfying. The place will be great for an impromptu casual meet-up with family and friends as it is around my around, Hougang/Kovan.

Caffe Pralet @ Eng Hoon St. (Tiong Bahru)

CaffePralet

Caffe Pralet

If you are looking for a café that has no GST and no service charge. Caffe Pralet is the place to go. Caffe Pralet has a history of 10 years here in Eng Hoon Street. The founder Julie Koh, opened a baking school and café here 10 years ago to showcase the culinary side of her.

Today, they have revamped their menu and has a wide range of fusion food.

Hei Bi Aglio Olio

Hei Bi Aglio Olio

I got to try out their Hei Bi Aglio Olio. If you don’t know what Hei Bi is, it’s basically dried small shrimps that have a very pungent smell to it. It was my first time trying out such an exotic combination, certainly very original. Hei Bi-lovers will sure to be pleased!

Chicken Chop with Satay Sauce

Chicken Chop with Satay Sauce

I love their Chicken Chop with Satay Sauce. I feel that the idea of putting them together is brilliant. The satay sauce was indo-inspired. Therefore, creamy and full of flavour. Yet, it doesn’t overpower the whole dish as it comes with a refreshing cucumber ah-cha and sour cream.

Paprika Fries

Paprika Fries

Be sure to also try out their Paprika Fries! I was told by the Head Chef that they had actually made their own secret blend of seasonings. Delish!

CaffePralet Cakes

CaffePralet Cakes

I was quite astonished that they have a wide selection of cakes and pastry. Everything is made in-house from the baking school beside the café. I got to try out their Gula Melaka Cake, Chocolate Cake, and Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake

Though I was told that the Red Velvet Cake uses Beet Root, I personally feel that it was a little dry and can be further improved. Nevertheless, the other cakes were very satisfying and delectable.

Chocolate Cake and Gula Melaka Cake

Chocolate Cake and Gula Melaka Cake

The rich layered Chocolate Cake comes with a chocolate sponge, followed by mousse and hazelnut praline, finishing off with a chocolate glaze and gold flakes. I love the crunch of the hazelnut praline with the deep rich chocolate mousse. Total indulgence.

Gula Melaka Cake

Gula Melaka Cake

Coconut-lovers, you should totally try out their Gula Melaka Cake. It got to be my favourite. The layered cake comes with toasted sweet coconut at the bottom, Gula Melaka-flavoured cheese mousse and Pandan sponge. Brings me back to the days where my mum got me Oneh-Oneh every week when I was young.
