Because shopping is energy-expending. Go ahead and treat yourself.
Assorted cakes, from $6.50, from P. Bistro
Co-owner and pastry chef Min Yee trained at Le Cordon Bleu Paris and Ecole Lenotre, two of the top culinary schools in the world, so her signature desserts are a must-try. The tantalising array of cakes, tarts and other sweet treats will perk you right up.
Matcha Azuki Shiratama with condensed milk, $8, from Ishinomaki Grill & Sake Bar
This grill eatery serves a mean dessert that’s worth making a stop for – classic Japanese green tea ice cream topped with azuki beans and drizzled with condensed milk. If you have the time, enjoy a full meal first with grilled items like eel, mackerel and beef tenderloin, and add some rice or noodles.
Florida Key Lime Pie, $12, from PS.Cafe
Arguably one of the earliest cafes in Singapore to popularise the notion of brunch and make high tea cool, PS.Cafe (which opened its first branch in 1999) is still a popular option among the young and hip for an afternoon soiree. Must-order items are the indulgent cakes, tarts and puddings. The Florida Key Lime Pie, for example, is a sharply sweet and tart delight with a buttery, crumbly base. Perfect for a midday treat.
