Availability: 1 – 31 August 2018 | Location: All Ah Mah Homemade Cake outlets, including VivoCity, Plaza Singapura and White Sands.
Ah Mah Homemade Cake has made waves with its soft and fluffy castella cakes, and this National Day is no exception for them. This month, Ondeh Ondeh takes centre stage (finally, a breather from Durian errrthing), with a fragrant pandan sponge base layered with Gula Melaka for a hint of sweetness. Each cake is packaged in a limited edition box designed by local artist Ah Guo, so pick one up if you’re feeling especially patriotic.

Steam Box offers a new (and possibly healthier) way of having steamboat, where the raw ingredients are steamed then enjoyed with porridge (instead of boiled in an oily soup base). The high speed steaming method extracts the juices from the ingredients, then lets them drip into the soup base below the steaming plate. Soup bases, which include Pork Rib Lotus Root and Chicken Herbal Collagen, are brewed in-house with tried and tested recipes.
