Artisanal bubble tea brand Bober Tea 御波坊, though a relatively new comer in the growing bubble tea industry in Singapore, has gained quite positive reputation and reviews.
The dessert-inspired Brown Sugar Crème Brûlée Milk ($4.30, $5.60) is one of the top-sellers, with options of the classic flavour Brown Sugar Boba Fresh Milk, to more fanciful ones added with Oreo, Matcha, to Roasted Oolong.
Their chewy QQ tapioca pearls are freshly made at their outlets. That QQ-texture chewiness is a result of cooking at 65°C for optimal chewiness and soaking for two hours to absorb all the brown sugar goodness.
If you enjoy pearls with a texture just in between, theirs are both soft and chewy.
Though they are loved for their Brown Sugar Crème Brûlée Milk with boba pearls, they have a plethora of other creative drinks. Other must-try original creations are Brown Sugar Roasted Oolong Milk, Salted Caramel Milk Tea, Hokkaido Chizu Matcha to Black Sugar Konjac Jelly Milk Tea.

Craving for Korean style breakfast? Egg Stop is a local kiosk that offers “Korean sandwich shack with an influence of American style breakfast comfort food”.
The shops offer ala-carte sandwich ($4.50 – $7.90) and set meal for an additional $2. Keeping the menu lean, they feature 6 different sandwiches that takes about 10 minutes to prepare as they are all freshly-done only upon ordering.
Flavours include Chicken Ham & Cheese ($4.50), Turkey Bacon & Cheese ($4.90), Smoked Chicken ($5.50), Beef Teriyaki ($6.90) and Beef Chilli Cheese ($5.90).
Using thick, buttery bread freshly baked daily, the bread is soft, moist and fluffy.
My favourite is the Beef Teriyaki ($6.90) with thinly sliced marinated beef torched for smokiness, teriyaki sauce, caramelised onion, mayonnaise and a single raw egg yolk.

Healthy Soba IKI
One Raffles Place #04-47, Singapore 048616
Tel: +65 6438 6022
Opening Hours: 11am – 9pm (Mon – Sat), Closed Sun
Healthy Soba IKI aims to make people’s life healthier and happier by serving 100% organic buckwheat from Japan.
This establishment only uses handmade soba, made by mixing organic buckwheat powder with water to create a dough, then kneaded by hand until elastic and smooth.
Only upon order will the dough pass through a machine to create strands of soba ready for boiling. Once cooked, cold water is added to bring out its chewy texture. Finally, the soba noodles are tossed to prevent them from becoming soggy.
An interesting choice would be the Laksa Soba ($13.00), a locally-inspired creation that combines the health goodness of the organic buckwheat with the iconic flavours of laksa.
Another popular localised option is the Herbal Vegetable Soba ($14.00) made from 100% natural products and has that clean, homemade taste. The rich flavours of the broth complement the gluten-free soba noodles.

Marugame Udon & Tempura Singapore 丸亀製麺
2 Orchard Turn #B4-67/68 ION Orchard Singapore 238801
Tel: +65 6732 0687
Opening Hours: 11am – 10pm (Mon – Sun)
Marugame Udon & Tempura, known to be the No. 1 Udon noodle restaurant chain in the world, can be found in Singapore at ION Orchard basement 4.
Those who frequent Japan should have seen this brand around, also known as Marugame Seimen 丸亀製麺.
It is named after Marugame 丸亀, the city in Kagawa Prefecture known to serve the best of these thick wheat flour noodles.
The brand is known for its freshly made Sanuki-style Udon at affordable prices, starting at $5.90 for a classic regular Udon. Inexpensive considering ION Orchard is at the heart of town.
To make these special noodles, the restaurant in Singapore is equipped with a specially-imported machine that stimulates traditional methods to efficiently knead the flour.
One of the best sellers and my personal favourite is the Udon with Seasoned Cod Roe & Half Boiled Egg ($11.90, $12.90), a dry udon with mentaiko and seaweed strips.
After mixed together, the roe imparted a layer of complex salty-sweetness, while the egg helped to balance the dish. You can also appreciate the chewy texture and mild flavour of the Udon noodles.

You may have seen these large cookies on your Instagram gallery. Nasty Cookie is a local dessert bakery offering sinful yet delicious cookie treats, along with milkshakes and soft serves.

The Beverly Hills Cheesecake store features the famous cheesecakes from The Cheesecake Factory Bakery based in California, with more than 35 “legendary” flavours available.
Spoilt for choice? The Classic Cheesecake ($7.90 for slice, $89 for whole) remains as the top-seller, known for its silky and smooth top layer, and nutty crunchy crust.
