Ah Mah Homemade Cake
From $8 – $11 per cake. | Location: Bukit Panjang Plaza #01-18, VivoCity #B2-K7 and JCube #B1-K12 | Opening Hours: 10am-10pm | Contact Number: 9769 4380
Malaysia’s famed Ah Mah Homemade Cake has finally made its way to Singapore, with three new outlets at VivoCity, Bukit Panjang Plaza and JCube. The popular cakes are inspired by the eggy sponge cakes from Taiwan, and are baked fresh daily without added preservatives or colouring. The soft, spongey cakes are also a healthier pick, as they are made primarily with eggs, milk and high quality flour. There are only two flavours available in Singapore at the moment – Original and Cheese – and each customer is limited to a purchase of two cakes per day.

Open Door Policy
Location: 19 Yong Siak Street Singapore 168650 | Opening Hours: 12pm – 3pm; 6pm – 11pm | Contact Number: 6221 9307
Open Door Policy has undergone a menu makeover, with a new 100% gluten-free and dairy-free concept to boot. While gluten-free or dairy-free food may not sound the most appealing, the restaurant is set on changing this notion with healthy dishes that are actually delicious too. Expect new menu additions like the Braised Veal Ossobuco with green pea risotto, Roasted Pork Rack with a five-spice marinade and a Dairy-Free Apple Crumble made with crunchy oat crumble and cashew milk crème anglaise.

Mr Bean – SINGAFOUR
Available at all Mr Bean outlets in Singapore until 31 August 2017.
In the spirit of National Day, Mr Bean is rolling out four special flavours for their signature pancakes. The collection of flavours, which is aptly titled SINGAFOUR, includes Curry Potato & Egg, Taro Paste, Sambal Ikan Bilis and Grated Coconut & Cheese.
The Curry Potato & Egg pancake, in particular, combines the best of two local favourites – curry puffs and Mr Bean pancakes. The soft pancake is stuffed with a curry potato filling and sliced egg, resulting in a lighter and less oily version of a curry puff. As expected, the new flavours are selling like hot cakes (pun intended, hur hur), so try them while stocks last.

Pezzo – Durian Charcoal Pizza
From $5.90 per slice or $32.90 for a 14″ pizza. Available at all Pezzo outlets (except Changi Airport Terminal 2) until mid-August 2017, or while stocks last.
Pezzo Pizza has launched its first ever Durian Charcoal Pizza, which sounds like…well, a stomachache waiting to happen – but durian lovers will still probably want to give it a try. The pizza is made with charcoal dough and topped off with 100% pure durian flesh from the Mao Shan Wang and D24 varieties. Definitely a different way to get your durian fix.
