dal.komm COFFEE – Marina Square
6 Raffles Boulevard #02-278 Singapore 039594
Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm (Mon – Sun)
dal.komm COFFEE Revamps Marina Square Outlet With Korean-Style Pasta
You may have noticed that popular Korean café concept dal.komm COFFEE and Coffee Bar at Marina Square now spots a brand-new look, along with expanded space and menu.
What I liked is there are many sections to the space, with some parts designed like a living room concept for customers to feel more comfortable and right at home.
It now offers an expanded menu from Korean-style Pasta, Samyang Ramyun, Buldak Fried Chicken, Kimchi Cheese Pizza, Ssamjang Chicken Cruffin, to Injeolmi Toast.
Taking inspiration from Korean ingredients and cuisine, the recommended Buldak Crab Pasta ($18.90) is a newly introduced spicy pasta dish.
The pasta gets its fieriness from the buldak sauce. Made from gochugaru, Korean chilli flakes and more, Buldak sauce has a heat quotient and surprising smokiness.

Chunky Gooey Cookies and Oozing Brownies At Orchard Central Café
You might have heard of Whiskdom, a home-based bakery with huge Levain-style cookies and brownies. They have now opened a cafe concept at Orchard Central.
Some detail about the cookies: the cookies at Ooze are done Levain-style, which is an offshoot of the creations from New York City’s famous Levain Bakery, where oversized cookies are churned out daily to the satisfaction of tourists and locals.
The cookies have a gooey center with soft insides.
You will find rows of Cookies ($6.50) and Brownies ($6.50) neatly lined up on trays at the front of the shop. From there, take your pick from their dazzling array of flavours.

There are also the pretty-looking Iced Refreshers of Sunset Breeze ($7), Sakura Peach Blossom ($7), Sakura Lychee Spritz ($7) and Yuzuri Spritz ($7). Take a couple of photos, and give the drinks a good stir.

Under-The-Radar Joo Chiat Cafe With Coffee From Shan Hills Myanmar
If you find the configuration and feel of the new coffee space vaguely familiar, that is because it took over Homeground Coffee Roasters (which has moved to Outram).
Shan Hills of Myanmar is not only known for its great culture, but also the quality coffee beans produced, nurtured by the temperate climate unique to its altitude.
Living in Myanmar for the last 10 years, co-founders Javier and Melissa worked closely with smallholder coffee producers of myriad villages and communities across the Shan Hills.
When I visited, there were four items including Roast Beef Ribeye French Butter Croissant with Arugula Salad ($29), Dashi Onsen Eggs with XO Kaya Yorkshire Pudding ($9), and Shan Origin Tofu Fries ($10).
