Haakon at Holland Village

This small eatery at the first floor of the new Raffles Medical centre about 100m from Holland Village mrt is aptly placed for healthy people🙂 it doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the food was pretty good!

Patissez at Holland Village

Patissez is the home of the one and only original FreakShake.

It was freaking disappointing, like the few honest (not invited tasting) reviews I’ve read. If you scroll to the end of the post, you’ll see a photo of 1/4-drank Pretzella shakes which, according to reviews, seemed to be the best FreakShake at Patissez.

Grain Traders at Raffles Place

Finally got to try this healthy eatery during a spontaneous lunch meeting with a dear friend and I can’t wait to return again!

The queue extended almost to the entrance when we arrived close to 1pm and there were tissues and work passes choping all available tables. I had no clue the eatery was very long or I might have not queued, but fortunately I continued waiting (: It is worth the wait if you have good company.

The new Island Cafe at Tangs Orchard is a beautiful green(-walled) oasis in the heart of town. A friend suggested meeting there as it just finished renovating and I was surprised while going up the escalator to the fourth floor that there was even The Providore in the building! (This is what happens when you head straight for the kitchenware section in the basement all the time.)

The revamped cafe serves mainly local and regional dishes and is beautifully lit, with the floor-to-ceiling windows letting in a lot of natural light. It is quiet and inviting, a nice spot for a break in between shopping or a lazy weekend brunch.
