Hot Latte with Kaya Croissant at Puzzle Coffee

Located at ION Orchard, the cafe’s signature coffee — Magic ($6) — is a double ristretto topped with milk. A ristretto is extracted with half the amount of water that’s typically used for a latte. Hence, you can expect a heavy-bodied coffee with a strong kick of caffeine. Think of it as a latte, but stronger.

Of course, not forgetting the Edible Cup, which is made from oats and grains. Diners can top up $3 for it. Although it was primarily “for the gram” and the edible cup was dry, it did its job of holding the contents of the coffee well without being soggy or falling apart. Puzzle Coffee’s main intention for this is to reduce waste anyway.

Old-school steakhouse in Orchard

Reminisce dining in old European grill rooms at Gordon Grill, a fine dining restaurant at Goodwood Park Hotel that serves some of the best steaks in Singapore.

The Creek Stone pine USDA Black Angus Rib Eye ($2.8 per 10g, minimum 200g) was bestowed with a godlike marbling and cooked to a perfect wall-to-wall medium rare despite being the most affordable item on the wagon. Aged for 28 days, it was tender and flavourful, especially when paired with their green peppercorn sauce, which had a brighter aroma that typical peppercorn sauces.
