I was recently invited to a chocolatier shop located at PasarBella @ The Grandstand, the old turf club of Singapore. This little shop is tucked among many other little shops in the farmers market where you can find loads of awesome gourmet foods and fresh produce… at a more premium price of course. I was there early and walked around before I came back the shop to introduce myself and got to know the owner, Ms Anjali Gupta. Anjali was a banker, quit from her high paying job and started this passion of hers. I really take my hat off for people who do that! A very nice and friendly lady, who took her time to explain what goes into every flavour that I have tried that session.
Anjalichocolat is a budding brand with loads of passion and focus. These are the 2 key components to success. Passion from the owner herself and the focus is from making the best chocolates using natural ingredients for their customers. It is definitely a lot more work as compared to dripping a flavour into the mixture! Kudos to them for that! These chocolates are definitely worth buying and giving to the most deserving.
PasarBella The Grandstand, 200 Turf Club Road, A Farmers Market, Singapore 287994.

I am writing about this confectionery because of how they re-branded themselves and still sticking to making traditional bread that I ate when I was a young boy. As a child, I always love the loaves which has colourful swirls that are so attractive! Maybe that’s why I love bread so much… Hmmm…
Situated along the busy food street of Upper Serangoon Road which connects to Hougang, Sengkang and Punngol, there is no lack of traffic here… literally. So if you’re around that area, pop by and check them out.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5. Thumbs up for keeping the tradition and no preservatives used in the baking! Price has escalated quite a bit, maybe because of the rental.
A friend told me about this bakery which opened not too long ago and I heard it’s always long queue during lunch time. So she ta pao for me to try. She bought me the raisin bun with cream cheese inside, which apparently is selling like errr… hot buns now…
Taste: Just perfect. This is what buns should taste like. Tasted other type of buns also. Try the Nacho Cheese Bun… you’ll be in for a surprise. 🙂
Price: $1.20 or something like that… was told only $1+
RTE: Yeah!!! I wanna try their other buns!!!
Location: Basement of OUB Centre @ One Raffles Place. Opposite Starhub.
Got some samples of muffins from SCORE recently which stands for Singapore Corporate For Rehabilitative Enterprises. SCORE is a statutory board set up under the Ministry of Home Affairs and is a member of the Home Team. As part of Singapore’s correctional system, SCORE enhances the employability of offenders and prepare them for the eventual reintegration back to the workforce. SCORE also aims to create a seamless throughcare environment to facilitate their transition from incarceration to community. (Copied from their website :P)
Taste: Pretty good and moist inside. At least it’s not dry. Taste is also quite nice. But of course not as good as those which cost $3.50 each at some branded cafes.
Portion: Good size for hi-tea buffets or giveaways.
