Ri Ri Cha 日日茶
24 Sago Street, Singapore 059020
Opening Hours: 12pm – 10pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon
Tea-Specialty Ice Cream Cafe At Chinatown With Nian Gao Waffles
New Ice Cream cafe Ri Ri Cha 日日茶 at Sago Street is focused on tea-flavoured ice cream.
If you find some of their offerings such as Nian Gao Waffles familiar, that is because it is opened by the same folks behind The Better Scoop located at Serangoon and Sembawang.
Outlet-exclusive flavours are more tea-focused, such as Corn Silk Tea, White Peach Oolong, Matcha Butterfly Pea Soy, Jasmine Green Milk Tea, Longan Red Dates, Tangerine Peel Pu’erh, Da Hong Pao Pineapple and Roselle Smoked Plum.
The Nian Gao Waffles ($6.80) was as delightful as I remembered it to be, with a layer of chewy “Nian Gao” (a traditional Chinese New Year cake) made from glutinous rice flour embedded within the waffle.
Adding a chewy texture in contrast to the crispy nature of a waffle, it is similar to how we usually pan-fried our Nian Gao with eggs, except in the form of a waffle that is more airy.

Malaysian Specialty Coffee Cafe Opened At Seah Street
Ask Coffee Roastery which is a homegrown coffee roaster based in Shah Alam, has opened their first outlet in Singapore, along Seah Street (right next to Raffles Hotel Singapore).
Using a 2-beans-blend of Brazil and Colombian, ASK will be roasting their own beans in Singapore in the future.
The same blend is used for their espresso-based coffee, starting from $4 for a cup of Black: Espresso, Americano, Lungo; Latte ($6 – $7) and Flavoured Coffee ($7 – $8).
My cup of Latte ($6) was medium-bodied with a light-medium roast, distinctive orange citrus notes and slightly on the acidic side, with subtle chocolatey taste.

Paya Lebar Cafe With Chinese Medical Hall Theme
8Bar Espresso is a coffee specialty place that serves Chinese food and snacks at SingPost Centre, taking over the space previously occupied by Monga Fried Chicken Singapore 艋舺ㄟ雞排.
As for the interior, it is a mix of modern industrial design with cemented grey walls and floorings, coupled with red drawers that resembles a Chinese medicinal hall.
Their Breakfast and Sides selection seem to incorporate a strong influence from Taiwan, such as Taipei to NY ($14), Lu You Fries ($13) and Fried Chicken Poppers ($13).
I enjoyed the Lu You Fries ($13), a spin-off from Taiwan Lu Rou Fan (Braised Pork Rice), topped with braised pork, mozzarella with spicy broad bean mayonnaise, spring onion and white sesame.
