After roaming our way through the Hawker Centre, our food journey continued to nearby.
What do you need after stuffing your face with local goodness? Coffee.
Jecinda has always told me I should go cafe hopping around Singapore, but the fact that I can’t drink more than one coffee a day without going completely nuts kind of puts a damper in those plans…
Our first stop (and my only coffee) for the day was at Tiong Bahru Bakery.
It was buzzing with people. Can you imagine having a little bitch take up so much room and squeeze beside you to take a picture of pastries? Sorry everyone. But not sorry.
If I wasn’t stuffed, I’d be pointing out these babies to take back to the table.
LOOK THEY EVEN HAD CROISSANT HOT DOGS. As in the bun is made of croissant, and they have various different fillings.
And even Squid Ink Buns.
Alas I can’t let you know what the food was like.
But the coffee?
I want to take that menu home with me, I think it’s so great.
Boy and I stuck to our Americanos – His is with cold milk if anyone’s ever buying him a coffee. Mine with soy if there is Bonsoy. Yep, soy milk snob.
We chatted for a bit as we had our coffees. I think I was trying to build up the courage/stomach space to eat more. After a bit we gave up and went to the next coffee shop – The Orange Thimble.
This had less of a buzzing vibe, but it was still pretty cool inside.
Milkshakes? Oh mama.
I was pretty happy not to get anything. Meaning I’d just steal a bit of whatever anyone else is having. Is that not okay?
It was so nice to spend a day with my cousins after not seeing them for months. Well, Jecinda and Jason, anyway. The others couldn’t make it. Hmph.
At least I had this idiot by my side.
Boy had another coffee. Probably why he went a bit nuts.
But it came with old school ice gems! Which made me very, very excited.
Jason also got some Earl Grey ice-cream, which I may have had a bit more than my fair share of.
Maybe next time I’m back I’ll do a write up on coffee places in Singapore. One coffee each day. ONE DAY.
