Inspired by Singapore’s well-loved Bandung (rose syrup) drink, The Coffee Academics has introduced a new flavour to its Coffee In A Cone range. Bandung Babycino in A Cone ($8.90) is a delicate balance of sweet rose syrup and bitter coffee, served in a chocolate-coated ice cream cone. The flavour is only available for a limited time though, so go out and get one now for that Instagram photo you know you want to take.

$13.90 per pint. Available at leading supermarkets, convenience stores and on Deliveroo.
Ben & Jerry’s has pretty much created Christmas in a cup (or should we say ice cream pint?) with their new seasonal flavour Oat of this Swirled. The buttery brown sugar ice cream is accented with fudge flakes and swirls of oatmeal cinnamon cookies, for a sweet treat that is well, truly out of this swirled (geddit geddit?).

Available from 23 October 2017, while stocks last. | The limited edition collection is available at Nespresso boutiques (ION Orchard #01-14A; Raffles City Shopping Centre #01-16; Takashimaya Department Store B1) or online.
Nespresso has launched a candy-inspired collection of capsules, which combine candy-flavoured aromas with their premium Pure Arabica coffee. The three variations available in Singapore are Orangette (orange peel with a hint of chocolate), Snowball (sweet coconut with vanilla) and Liquorice (spices with liquorice candy notes), available at $8.80 for 10 capsules.
Oh, and check out how the capsules have been jazzed up with a new colourful stripe motif – can someone get us a box already?

If you couldn’t already tell from its name, Tamoya Udon is all about the udon. The udon restaurant, which hails from Kagawa, Japan, has an outlet at Liang Court which serves up authentic handmade udon and freshly-made tempura. The latest addition to their menu is the Dry Udon series, which is essentially udon without the broth. The noodles are meant to be springier (or QQ, if you will) and more flavourful than their soup-based counterparts.
The Dry Udon Series will feature the Oooh-mami Udon (udon coated with XO sauce and tossed with an onsen egg, dried sakura ebi, fresh spring onions and bonito flakes), Triple Egg Udon (udon with tobiko, mentaiko, tamago and butter), Fried Onion Udon (udon glazed with spring onion oil and topped with fresh spring onions, onions and shallots) and Pesto Udon (fusion udon with pesto and minced pork).

If IKEA meatballs is the only thing that comes to mind when you think of Swedish cuisine, then you’re missing out. Fika Swedish Cafe boasts a wide variety of Swedish-inspired dishes, including freshly made bread, pasta and meaty mains (yes, they have meatballs too). The cafe recently launched their new Autumn Menu, which features fall favourites such as Hasselbacks Potato on Cheesey Skagen, Pan-Fried Halibut with Crispy Garlic and an Espresso, Fig, and Almond Cake.
