Hello! I used to do a lot of food diary posts, but it’s been a long time since my last one (though I guess technically almost all my cafe posts nowadays are about food).
Fun fact: I am currently working as a food photographer. I love taking pictures of food so much I turned it into a means of livelihood. Plus so you know that I take these posts seriously
My friends and I went to Hoshino Coffee for dinner sometime in the beginning of the monthHoshino Coffee’s desserts are the stuff of legends. They have pancakes, souffles, soft serve ice cream, and everything else little children (and I) dream of.
There were too many I wanted to try, so I had both the vanilla souffle and french toast—one as a main course and one as the actual dessert. Which is probably not the wisest choice health, but it was a rare occasion and everyone shared it
And then on another day with my friends I finally got my hands on the Tai Parfait that’s been swimming around in my cravings since forever. Fun fact #2: Taiyaki (fish-shaped pancakes) are my favourite Japanese confectionery(I might’ve said this at least once before but anyway it’s important)
Tai Parfait is the same favourite taiyaki of mine, except its mouth is wide open and stuffed with ice cream and whipped cream and chocolate-dipped berries. I’m eating a dessert that’s eating a dessert.
Macarons are like the princesses of the sweets world. So dainty and delicate and totally expensiveThese were a treat I received! I rarely get such a wonderful chance to try macaronsI feel twice as cultured just nibbling away at them. Usually I like taking bigger bites, but macarons are always so small they disappear in the span of two seconds all too easily.
My mom and I went to Gordon Ramsay’s new restaurant in Singapore once; it was a weekday afternoon and almost empty. As great as celebrity chef’s highly acclaimed restaurants are, eating there can cost you an arm and a leg
My mom and I shared a starter (which are big enough we ate them like mains) and a dessert together, plus we ate our fill of complimentary bread. And that’s how we walked out of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant with a happy stomach and a healthy wallet
