Chocolat N Spice Cakes (Shunfu Market)

​I went to Shunfu Market to get the muffins but halfway through queueing they got sold out so I decided to get their cakes instead. 

I got the Rasberry Cheesecake ($3.80) and the Red Velvet ($5) from Chocolat N Spice.

Red velvet is a buttery cake with sour cheese icing. The cake was aromatic and has a similar flavour to their muffins. I spotted red fruit fibers in the cake which may possibly be from beetroot.

The cheesecake was a tad too dry. The  raspberry jam tasted kind of sour. I could hardly taste the cheese. The roasted nuts on hazelnut cream on the side of the cake was delicious though. They used a spongey vanilla cake base instead of the usual biscuit base.

I really like how they use fresh fruits to decorate their cakes.

I would recommend the red velvet cake. It has an exceptional flavour, especially for a hawker centre bakery.

Breadtalk’s Cheese Tarts

Since the cheese tart craze began this year, cheese tarts can be found almost everywhere.

That being said, as a foodie, I had to try BreadTalk’s take on the cheese tart.

Their cheese was runny and creamy, very similar to President’s cream cheese spread. The pastry was thin and surprisingly full of flavour.

We had the original flavour ($2.40 per tart).

I urge you to try this as their cheese tarts are unique in texture and flavour.

Common Man Coffee (Martin Road)

I came here because a friend recommended this place saying that they have great coffee. 

I honestly was quite disappointed when I arrived. We had to queue/wait for 20 minutes to be seated and the place was congested with people.

I ordered their Fish Burger ($26++) and a Flat White ($5++).

The fish burger’s brioche bun was toasted to perfection. There were tomato slices, lettuce and xiao bai cai (cooked with coconut milk) with tar tar sauce in between the brioche bun slices. The fish patty was definitely the highlight of the dish. It was at least 3 times thicker than McDonald’s fish burger patty! It was kind of flaky but it’s handmade by them. The dish came with fries which were seriously unbearably salty.

The Flat White was very milky but not aromatic. The barista said they usually use this blend for flat whites:

I would not recommend going to this cafe during the weekends because of the crowd. It has a well decorated exterior and interior with a cosy ambience, but the I felt that the food here are a tad too pricey for the quality of food we are getting.

Hope you enjoyed reading!

This is their menu:

This is what the cafe looked outside:

My friend had the Common Man Veggie Wonderland ($25++) and the kale juice ($9++). She said that their sautéed mushroom and poach eggs were really good. 

Prima Deli Salted Yolk Lava Cheese Tarts (Vivocity)

After BAKE cheese tarts came to Singapore and the ridiculous queues that accompanied them, many bakeries have caught onto the trend. From Breadtalk to Bread Society and now even Prima Deli are selling cheese tarts like hot cakes. The flavours vary from the original to salted egg.

I was at Vivocity and stumbled upon the cheese tarts from Prima Deli. They are bigger in size and looked more “baked” on the top than most cheese tarts from other bakeries. 

Therefore, I submitted to temptation. I got the salted yolk lava ones ($2.80 per tart) only as I felt that they are pretty much the original ($2.40 per tart) with filling.

They basically pour the salted yolk filling in the empty pastry before stacking a layer of cheese cake on top. The cheese here is dry and fluffy. I found the cheese and pastry quite substandard. However, I like the salted egg filing which was thick and flavourful.

I would recommend you to try this at least once. The salted yolk filling here is definitely better than Bread Society’s.The taste may be subjective.
