Food Trail @ Tampines 1 Mall

Hello friends! Join me on a food trail in Tampines 1 shopping mall!

Here I am holding on to Awfully Chocolate's delicious trufflettes! Below I'll be showing casing food dishes from the different restaurants I visited, all in Tampines 1.

Thai Express

Thai Express is a bold interpretation of Thai cuisine, from the usual exotic positioning in fine dining restaurants, and communal dining style, no doubt. But, they have been successful as proven in more than 30 restaurants in countries such as China, Malaysia, Vietnam and Singapore achieved in the past 10 years. Their appeal has now achieved a global standing amongst customers from a myriad of countries.

Thai Express is a local brand which I'm sure most of us will be pretty familiar with. My mum loves Thai Express for their tomyam soup, as do I. However, it was my first time trying this Massaman Chicken Curry with Thai-Style Pancakes, and I'm in love again!!!

I never knew Thai Express had this dish. The curry is cooked overnight to let the flavour of the ingredients be infused with the curry. Thus the curry was really flavourful and yummy! Goes especially well with the pancakes as well. This was also voted no.1 by CNN.

Chicken basil and rice. A tad bit too spicy for me! 

Otah which was also very spicy. 

 Homemade Thai dessert called lod chong! Looks like chendol but it's so much nicer!

I love the green jelly! It's a cooling dessert you can try, apart from the mango sticky rice which every Thai restaurant offers.

Thai Express is located #04-09 & #05-08 in Tampines 1.

Yamazaki Boulangerie Chaude

Boulangerie Chaude means "hot Bakery" in French. With most of its ingredients and recipes from Japan, Yamazaki Boulangerie Chaude promises customers freshly baked breads daily. Check out its mouth watering range of international spread like English bread, French Bread, Japanese snack cakes and Belgium waffle.

 Got to taste bread from Yamazaki and it was pretty good! I'm not a bread expert or anything, but I'm sure everyone prefers soft and fresh bread instead of rock-hard bread. Good for breakfast in the morning or even a snack in the day.

They offer a large variety of cakes as well, along with bread and pastries. 

Yamazaki is located at #B1-14 in Tampines 1.

Awfully Chocolate

Awfully Chocolate is a cake shop selling only one cake - a simple dark chocolate cake between layers of dark chocolate fudge. Real cake one could bite into, rich in taste yet moist and light. Not just mouthfuls of mousse or cream. Not overly sweet but something you could eat and not feel disgusted with yourself right after. Something you would find yourself craving for regularly and never tire of.

The delicious chocolate displayed just made me drool even though it's not near my mouth...

Flourless chocolate cake!!

And omg chocolate truffles!!! My favourite cause this melts in the mouth!!!

3 flavours of trufflettes: Café cacao nib, Cacao brittle and Cacao hazelnut trufflettes.

J.CO Donuts & Coffee

J.CO Donuts and Coffee is an international premium Donuts and Coffee brand which offers unique and original mixed flavours of donuts and beverages to people unlike they've ever tasted before.

I'm sure this brand is not new to us, because it has so many outlets here in Singapore!

Are you also up for some frozen yoghurt?

See this Oreo donuts on the right, that's my favourite!!! If  you haven't tried, J.Co donuts are really soft, fluffy and yummy. Whenever I visit J.Co for their donuts, I will always takeaway at least a dozen for breakfast the next day.

Here are the donuts and drinks I tried!!

- Dazzling Queen Donut: Strawberry chocolate with light strawberry cream filling topped with soft coconut flake sprinkles
- Cheese Cakelicious: Oreo Cookies Topping with Cheesecake cream filling (my favourite again, Oreo is awesome!)
- Marble Hazel: Hazelnut Chocolate with Almond toppings

New drinks on their menu: Coconut Mocha Frappe and White Chocolate Espresso! My take: I don't like coconut so it was ok~ the white chocolate was delicious! But a tad bit too sweet.

This is the cotton candy snow drop flavoured one! Looks cool!

I tried a chocolate flavoured one which was not very nice and tasted weird and bitter. However, I heard that the original flavour (Milky Way) is good, so do try it if you haven't!

This honey is found in a natural environment that is rich with cherry and barley. In order to get the honey these white, creamy, smooth and taste like milk, it needs honeybees to build their beehives in the right place and on the right time when Cherry and Barley flowers are blooming. Its’ sweetness carries slight sour taste with barley incense. A good honey for any time of the day. It is favorite for everyone, especially kids and ladies.

We are familiar with the immense health benefits of ingesting bird nest. Besides providing good effects for menstrual discomfort, it also helps prevent cancer, enhance immune function and of course, lowers cholesterol.
