BLUE is my favourite colour. Open my wardrode and you see almost Blue-everything. (I happen to enjoy emm… Smurf too.) BUT BLUE food and drinks?
Cue in the artificial colours and flavourings. BUT some food places, especially Thai restaurants and some Nonya Kueh shops use butterfly pea herb (Clitoria ternatea) which can give a mid-night cobalt blue colour.
11 Very BLUE Food & Drinks In Singapore. And Not Just Unicorn Tears
The Workbench Bistro
Blk 332 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 #01-1881 Singapore 560332
Opening Hours: 12:00pm – 10:00pm (Mon – Thurs), 12:00pm – 11:00pm (Fri), 10:00am – 11:00pm (Sat), 10:00am – 10:00pm (Sun)
Blue Velvet Waffles
Ang Mo Kio is quite hipster, yah? Who would have thought that a café at AMK Ave 1 Blk 332 would sell such instagrammable BLUE Velvet Waffles.
The price is surprisingly affordable too at $5.50, or $8.80 with a big scoop of ice cream and sauce.
Or you can get the Chocolate S’moreffles ($7.50, $10.80 with ice cream) which offers a combination of both blue and red velvet waffles.
There is some chocolately taste in the red velvet, while the blue had marshmallows sandwiched in between which could provide a stretchy, sticky pull in the middle.
Nara Thai Cuisine
Westgate Mall #03-07 3 Gateway Drive Singapore 608532 (next to Jurong East MRT)
Opening Hours: 11:00am – 9:30pm, Last Orders 9:15pm Daily
Blue Fried Rice
Nara Thai Cuisine is famous for dishes such as its Kuay Tiew Rua (Boat Noodles) and Phunim Phad Pong Karee (Stir-fried Softshell Crab with Yellow Curry). Having been to the Bangkok’s outlets for quite a few times, I asked Nara Thai for dishes exclusive to Nara Thai Singapore.
Pair the rice with the Kao Phad Samunprai (Thai Herbs Fried Rice $6.90), coloured purplish-blue due to the usage of butterfly pea herb.
Or get a version of Kao Kra Pao Nua ($13.90) with stir fried minced pork and hot basil. Quite fragrant. Nara Thai Cuisine (Ion Orchard)

Blue Cookie Monster Macaron
Totally cute! This is Bonheur Patissserie’s best-selling Cookie Monster macaron with an Oreo cookie in the middle.
They emphasize on using natural ingredients for both the Macaron shells as well as fillings.
Buck Tile St. Café
104 Faber Drive Singapore 129412
Tel: +65 65667058
Opening Hours: 12pm – 11pm (Mon-Tues, Thurs-Sun), Closed Wed
Blue Velvet Cake
We describe a remote place as “where bird do not lay eggs” and (sorry) Bucktile St. Café may fit that bill, but I made it there anyway. Primary for its blue velvet cake.
Their Blue Velvet Cake ($6.90 per slice) while full of colourings, did not disappoint – soft, fluffy, not too dry, not too sweet, rather delightful. Bucktile Street Cafe (Faber Drive)
Blue Velvet Waffles
Also at Buck Tile, the Blue Velvet Waffles is also a show-stopper. Yes, Blue. The colour and dessert that “Sadness” from Inside Out will find some joy in.

Bubble Gum Ice Cream
Ice cream flavours at Meet and Melt can be wacky, anything from Salted Egg (not kidding), White Truffle, Chilli Crab to Curry Masala… and Bubble Gum.
Top it up with Charcoal Lava Toasts ($14.90) with flowing sauces of Thai Milk Tea, Thai Green Milk Tea and CURRY lava.
Who dares try Blue Ice Cream with CURRY toast? (Hashtag #DanielFoodDiary on Instagram if you do.)

Opening Hours: 8am – 5pm (Mon – Fri), Closed Sat – Sun
Dapper Coffee describes their Unicorn Tears as “Pure tears of joy from Sparkles, our pure bred Mongolian Unicorn. These tears contain NO ALCOHOL, and NO CAFFEINE.”
We say this is $10 worth of lemonade with sparkles.
(Within Tiong Hoe) Blk 170 Stirling Road #01- Singapore 140170
Tel: +65 9856 6579
Opening Hours: 9am – 4pm (Only Sun)
Blue Cold Brew
The sun is shining hot, and you may wish to have a tan by the pool with an iced COLD BLUEE coffee.
Available in light blue and baby pink, the cold brew is a blend of 3 beans – Indian Monsoon, Sumatra Mandheling and Columbia Supremo. Great if you like your coffee strong, not so good if you mind blue stains on your tongue.
Limited quantities available. Maybe better call to reserve.
Coffee can be so cool and blue.
Cheng’s Gourmet Food Bar & Bistro BBQ
28 Clementi Road Singapore 129758
Tel: +65 6464 0617
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 5pm, 5:30pm – 11:45pm Daily
Ultraviolet Floral Cooler
Have seen a similar drink served at Bangkok’s café, the Ultraviolet Floral Cooler ($6.20) at Cheng’s Gourmet Food Bar (near NUS) is made using butterfly pea flower.
Squeezing lemon over would change the acidity level of the drink, from blue to purple. Refreshing, somewhat like a milder form of lemonade. Cheng’s Gourmet Food Bar (Clementi Road)

The next instagrammable drink they came up with is a Specialty Sparkling Lemonade with adorable (or sad) looking teddy jelly.
