Bangkok, Thailand: Coconut Ice Cream, Chatuchak Weekend Market

Coconut Ice Cream

If memory serves, there was more than just the one stall dishing up servings of Coconut ice cream at the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Word on the inter-webs is that one particular stall, located between Sections 1 and 2, serves the best rendition. But to be honest, any cold ice cream on a hot day would taste as perfect as the next.

If you’re there, give it a try. At less than SGD 2 for a serving with your choice of toppings (the selection varies from stall to stall, but generally includes corn, peanuts, glutinous rice, sweetened kidney beans),what’s stopping you!

1-Caramel

Having had fond memories at 1 Caramel previously, I was definitely looking forward to returning –this time, for a Valentine Chocolate Workshop with 1-Caramel Cake Artist and Pastry Chef Ivan.

We learnt how to craft and decorate hand-made praline chocolates using Valrhona chocolates. In this post, I shall share with you 3 recipes, which you can easily attempt at home.

PrimaDéli

PrimaDéli is bringing you a selection of New Year cookies and pineapple tarts this Lunar New Year; three selections of pineapple tarts – Divine Pineapple Tarts, Pillow Pineapple Tarts and Fortune Pineapple Tarts – are available alongside two new cookies – Pumpkin Seed and Oatmeal Cranberry.

3 Inch Sin

 

3 Inch Sin is a boxy dessert café specialising in freshly baked warm chocolate cakes; this outlet at Millenia Walk is an addition to their first outlet at Cluny Court opened in 2010.

They show no modesty in proclaiming having the widest selection of molten cakes in Singapore – currently available in 11 flavours – while they are still exploring more flavours to incorporate into their molten cakes.

Life is too short to commit to one favourite flavour, do step out of your comfort zone and try their unique flavours!

Make Shake

 

MakeShake, the first customisable milkshake concept in Asia recently launched its flagship store at City Square Mall in October 2011.

Once you get down the escalator to the basement 2, MakeShake will immediately catch your attention. Its colourful façade with bold logos in shades of rainbow will prepare you for the jovial treats coming ahead.

At MakeShake, you can customise your own milkshake with a variety of Shake-Ins and flavours to choose from, blended with a homemade reduced sugar malted vanilla ice-cream –the less sweet ice cream will appeal to the health conscious. For those with a sweeter tooth, go all out with the add-ons.

Van Houten Cocoaphilia

Van Houten has been around for a very, very long time.  Its rich history dates back to 1828 when  Casparus van Houten Sr. patented a method to inexpensively process cocoa. Later his descendant, Coenraad Van Houten, created the Dutch Process to make chocolate powder more soluble in water.

Today, in year 2011, they are still one of the top leading brands of chocolate that is sold worldwide.  I am sure for most of us, Van Houten chocolates are one of few chocolates that we grew up with.  I remember melting the chocolate dragee with the almond center in my mouth.  Sometimes I’ll just hastily chew on the whole chocolate to see what I get from a bag of Fruit and Nut mix.  I love the Van Houten Assorted Neapolitan, with Milk, Mocha and Orange flavors.  It’s one of the Chinese New Year Treats I’ll attack, my favorite being the orange flavor.

At some point of times in our life, we have had a taste of the luscious chocolates from Van Houten.

Cocoaphilia aims to reach out to chocolate fanatics like me and tells us that we are not alone.  Below are a few photos from the event and I hope they pique your appetite for a bar of Van Houten chocolate at the end of the post.

K-ki

K-ki - Emily and Tiramisu - HungryEpicurean - Singapore Food Blog

I had first blogged on K-ki in early 2010, February to be exact and it has remained one of my top choices for cakes in Singapore. I continue to stand by to all the comments that I made of their cakes then – that itself is testament to their ability to consistently churn out cakes of quality, and not letting fame get to their heads.

Some bloggers have been commenting on their latest creations recently – Emily (S$9) and Tiramisu (S$9) and I thought it has been a while since I paid them a visit, so why not? Delphine, the affable lady boss a.k.a. lao ban niang commented that it must have been at least 5 months since I last visited.

Did I like the colourful cousin of the Kinabalu or K-ki’s rendition of the Italian classic? Read on to find out more!
