With the rising popularity of millennial pink, it seems rose-flavoured things have come into trend in the world of F&B. The humble ingredient has come a long way since our first taste of it in Bandung. Now, it’s found its way into mooncakes, crepes and even fried chicken!
Not only does it smell great, rose has many health benefits, including antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and moisturising properties.
If you’re a fan of the floral flavour, here’s a list of 6 foods and drinks that put rose front and centre!
1. Rose Mille Crepes[caption id="attachment_29160" align="aligncenter" width="2048"] Image Credit: Lady M Singapore Facebook[/caption]

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know Cha Tra Mue has been making waves in Singapore with the launch of their rose tea, which comes in three flavours: Rose Milk Tea, Honey Rose Tea and Lychee Rose Tea.
Their cups are all very Instagram-worthy, and we think they deserve the title of “Bangkok’s prettiest tea”.[caption id="attachment_29167" align="aligncenter" width="592"] Image Credit: chatramuesg Instagram[/caption]
Of the three drinks, the hot favourite is the Rose Milk Tea ($4.50) – a cup of fragrant Thai milk tea that has a faint taste of rose and a whiff of floral fragrance. For those who are slightly lactose-intolerant, try the Honey Rose Tea and Lychee Rose Tea. These refreshing drinks will keep you going for the rest of the day!
Antoinette serves an exquisite Superlova ($10.70) – Rose finger sponge cake with raspberry jelly, raspberry caviar & crumble, which is delectably lifted by a yuzu cream. They gel seamlessly together into a pleasantly creamy treat with light floral notes. The taste is neither overpowering nor elusive – truly a rose creation that’s deserving of admiration.
The ornate pastry is served with a Rose macaron on top, which consists of two light and crisp cookie shells sandwiching a delicate rose buttercream filling. While great with the rest of the cake, you’ll love it on its own too!
Address: 333A Orchard Road, Mandarin Gallery, #02-33/34, Singapore 238897
Opening Hours: Daily, 11am – 10pm
These rose creations are not only easy on the eyes, they also play well with the taste buds.
The great thing about rose is that because it’s light, it doesn’t overpower the other flavours it’s brought together with. If you love your millennial pink and love a light, floral flavour to go with your food or drink, these are a must-try.
Gone are the days when you would be served an uninspiring salad or a sad plate of mushrooms when you requested “something vegetarian”.
Whether your reasons for seeking out something vegetarian have to do with health, your religion, or are in the interest of animal welfare, there is no lack of options here in Singapore!
1. Original Sin
The first vegetarian Mediterranean restaurant in Singapore, Original Sin has been around since 1997.[caption id="attachment_28968" align="aligncenter" width="545"] Absolut Pasta (Image Credit: Vegan Ash)[/caption]
An interesting dish they serve here is the Absolut Pasta ($29), which comes with Australian asparagus and other ingredients flamed with Absolut vodka. Yep, there is alcohol content in this pasta, which is exquisitely executed.[caption id="attachment_28966" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] Apple Crumble (Image Credit: 2. Real Food
Real Food has a few outlets that are situated mainly around the central area of Singapore.
They have an extensive menu that caters to different palates and preferences. Even if you’re a die-hard meat-lover, you’ll find a dish here that will leave you craving for more.[caption id="attachment_28969" align="aligncenter" width="597"] Vegetable Dumplings in Soup (Image Credit: @cq_veggiefinds)[/caption]
Try their Vegetable Dumplings in Soup ($9.80/6pcs), a luxurious mixture of mushrooms, beancurd, carrots and beans which are handchopped and wrapped in a dumpling skin. Real Food has got the perfect dumpling filling to skin ratio, and their soup will have you slurping up every last drop![caption id="attachment_28971" align="aligncenter" width="599"] Mushroom and Celery Tomato Penne (Image Credit: @jesslyn0206)[/caption]

The Raw Masala Pizza ($22) at Afterglow is an absolute must-try![caption id="attachment_28981" align="aligncenter" width="563"] Image Credit: @lifewithzhane[/caption]
It consists of assorted vegetables on a nut-based pizza crust, spicing up the otherwise green pizza. An added perk is that the layer of vegetables is topped with Macadamia Nut Cheese, which gives the pizza that added oomph of flavour![caption id="attachment_28982" align="aligncenter" width="585"] Image Credit: @levegtable[/caption]
Acai is all the rage right now, especially with the increased interest in superfoods here in Singapore.
Afterglow is no exception. They create flavoursome acai bowls with bananas, salted tahini (sesame seed paste) and raw walnut brownies. Their acai bowl “Bananas-over-Brownie” ($15) injects some sinful goodness into your regular acai bowl, proving the versatility of the almighty acai!

They say you’re not a true Singaporean unless you can take spicy food.
If you’re one of those people who take (sick) pleasure in taking on the spiciest foods the world has to offer, here’s a list of restaurants that serve flaming hot dishes sure to satisfy your sky-high spiciness tolerance.
Brace yourself – it’s going to be a fiery hot affair up ahead.
1. Southwest Tavern
Passing by, Southwest Tavern might look like any other diner serving your usual burgers and steak. This is where you’ll find the Spaghetti from Hell Challenge, where you’ll have to finish a whole plate of spaghetti in 10 minutes.
Before you take up this challenge, you’ll have to sign an indemnity form – that should be an indicator of how spicy this unassuming plate of spaghetti is.[caption id="attachment_28279" align="aligncenter" width="2184"] Image Credit: Image Credit: Aimakan[/caption]
Another must-try here are the Suicide Wings ($22/6 pcs). Like its name, the well-marinated wings contain a mix of two fiery peppers. It’s so hot, it could literally burn your throat.
Address: Tradehub 21, 8 Boon Lay Way #01-33, Singapore 609964

3. Face to Face Noodle House[caption id="attachment_28850" align="aligncenter" width="590"] Image Credit: Face to Face Noodle House.
The anchovies, minced pork and an onsen egg are tossed together with the homemade springy egg noodle, resulting in a crunchy and fragrant bowl of noodles. Also, the dried chilli adds a spicy and piquant mix of flavours to the whole dish.
One thing we love is that the chilli is served on the side, so you can choose to spam as much as you want for added shiokness!
Face to Face Noodle House
Address: City Square Mall, 180 Kitchener Road, #02-23/24, Singapore 208539

For those who love ramen and spice, you’re in for a treat!
[caption id="attachment_28288" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Image Credit: Burpple User Edmund Weixian[/caption]
Ikkousha Hakata Ramen serves God Fire Ramen ($13.50), where you can choose how spicy you want your ramen, from level 1 to 4.
When ordering, bear in mind that level 2 already poses quite a challenge to some. The texture of the noodles is springy while the ajitama egg makes a flavourful accompaniment to the overall dish. The flavours are perfectly balanced, with the spiciness not overpowering or taking away from the original flavour of the broth.
Ikkousha Hakata Ramen
Address: 7 Tanjong Pagar Plaza, #01-104, Singapore 081007
Opening Hours: Mon – Sat: 11.30am – 10pm; Sun: 11.30am – 9pm

Another palace that offers quality ramen in a terrifyingly red-hot broth is Ramen Champion.[caption id="attachment_28291" align="aligncenter" width="700"] Image Credit: Chope[/caption]
The Red Hell Ramen ($16.50) is definitely not for the faint of heart.
The thick broth is flavourful and a huge comfort during rainy weather. Compared to other ramen-specialty places, Ramen Champion is especially generous with their pork slices, which literally cover the noodles.

Sunset Grill and Pub
Address: 259 Jalan Kayu, Singapore 799488

Slap a pork cutlet, braised cabbage, and a gooey fried egg onto your rice! As with any cai fun store, the price differs depending on what ingredients you pick, but the price hovers around $3.
If you have extra calories to spare, add the Ngoh Hiang to your rice – it has a nice crunch from the water chestnuts within the fried, crispy skin.
The best part of this hearty and economical meal is the mixture of 4 different types of sauces on the mountain of food – curry, braised gravy, chilli oil, and chilli sauce. A beautiful mess indeed.

Fancy yourself a bit of a wizard? At this cafe, you can pretend to be it for a day–or at least a couple of hours.
There’s a wizard themed cafe in town and here, you can leave the muggle life behind by donning the elaborate cloaks, witches’ hats, and accessories like wands and broomsticks that are provided free of charge.[caption id="attachment_27385" align="alignnone" width="2880"] Pretend to be a wizard for a day at Platform 1094[/caption]
At this cafe reminiscent of The Three Broomsticks (the wizarding pub you may recognise from the Harry Potter books), a brick wall with a mystical-looking crest forms the perfect backdrop for all your photo-taking needs.[caption id="attachment_27386" align="alignnone" width="2037"] The perfect backdrop (and props!) for all your photo-taking needs[/caption]
No mere muggle or wizard will be able to resist grabbing some nosh at this pretty place, and we quickly succumbed to their quirky menu that was filled with magical-sounding drinks, finger foods and desserts.
Where else can you find food that sounds like it came straight out of a spell book?

The Main Dish: Schnitzel Sous-vide Duck Breast ($19)
This dish consists of well-seasoned, meaty pieces of duck breast flavoured with herbs and spices. The duck is then battered and fried to a beautiful golden hue that almost outshines the Goblet of Fire.[caption id="attachment_27710" align="alignnone" width="1000"] Image Credit: Black Magic[/caption]
As if we were under the spell of dark magic, we found the unpredictable mix of flavours and textures oddly bewitching.

As June rolls around, it brings plenty of good stuff: the national treasure that is the Great Singapore Sale, turbulent Gemini season and, best of all, LGBTQ Pride Month.
Pride Month celebrations are meant to commemorate the June 28 anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City, which is considered a milestone event in the modern fight for LGBTQ rights.
The rainbow flag has long been used to represent the LGBTQ community worldwide, and while there may have been some escalator drama and cake-bashing on our shores in recent weeks, love is still love and these events won’t dull our colours.
We’ve sussed out the best cafes around the island where you can give your sweet tooth the rainbow treatment in honour of Pride Month.

Waffles are such a versatile food. You can have them sweet or savoury, and you can have them any time of the day.
Although they can be found everywhere, not all waffles are created equal. The perfect waffle is fragrant, light, with just the right amount of crunch. From taro waffles to Korean fried chicken waffles, here is a list of the best waffles in Singapore. Try not to salivate while reading.
For those with a sweet tooth,
1. Hatter Street Bakehouse & Cafe
Hatter Street Bakehouse & Cafe is probably one of the more underrated cafes selling waffles in Singapore. Their waffles are baked to the perfect level of crispiness, while remaining moist within, and the texture of the waffle is consistent throughout.[caption id="attachment_27452" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Pandan Ice Cream with Gula Melaka Sauce Whoa’ffles (Image Credit: Burpple User Doreen Tan)[/caption]
The Pandan Ice Cream with Gula Melaka Sauce Whoa’ffles ($9.50) was rich with local flavours. Instead of honey or chocolate sauce, Hatter Street drizzles Gula Melaka over the waffles. The Pandan Ice Cream was a nice accompaniment, with its light pandan fragrance. The waffle was perfect for soaking up the mixture of Gula Melaka and the melted scoop of creamy ice cream.

Chocolate Root Beer Float Waffle (Image Credit: Burpple User Cafehoppingkids .)[/caption]
The Chocolate Root Beer Float Waffle ($12) is an aesthetically pleasing dessert creation. The rectangular waffle comes with a chocolate chip cookie, and an ash grey charcoal vanilla soft serve to top it all off. The charcoal soft serve had a hint of root beer in every mouthful, which did not overwhelm the original vanilla taste.[caption id="attachment_27180" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Image Credit: Burpple User Jayson Yeoh [/caption]
Because Red Velvet is so 2015, The Cold Pantry has taken their waffles to the next level by introducing Pink Velvet Waffles with Baileys Coffee Ice Cream and Sea Salt Caramel drizzle ($13.50).

Served with one scoop of gourmet ice cream, the Taro Waffles ($15.90) has a rich taro taste, with beautiful purple hues. The waffle screams “Taro Heaven” as there was taro infused within the batter, and a generous spread of yam paste all over the buttery waffles. While the ice cream is nothing too special, the waffles more than made up for it.
