Weekend Bites #5 – Love, Sweets & Everything Nice
It’s 4 days to Valentine’s! Have you made any plans to celebrate this season of love with your precious family and friends? This week, we have included some sweethearts to make you and our tummies extra happy. Even if Valentine’s Day is not your thing, these delights will still make your weekend bloom like flowers.
WTF Coffee House & Bar
For those in search of another star in the galaxy of Dhoby Ghaut
The force awakens at Innotel Hotel with the new addition of WTF Coffee House & Bar. “WTF?” I know what you’re thinking, but WTF actually stands for “We Talk Food”. Shall we talk Gyu Don ($13.90) then? Grilled beef slices (medium or well done) and an onsen tamago sit atop fluffy Japanese rice. Well, you know the drill, stir everything in and look forward to an explosion of familiar flavours that make you go OOOHH AHHHHH. Turn to the dark side with their extraordinary Squid Ink Mee Tai Mak. It sells out pretty fast, so head there early to avoid disappointment.
WTF Coffee House & Bar
Address: 11 Penang Lane, Singapore 238485
Opening Hours: 7am-12am daily.
For fluffy waffles and soothing coffees that make our hearts go be-dok be-dok
Yes, you’re right! Time for more cafe-hopping in the East! Add this new cafe, RouteSixtySix to your list. Brewed using the 22 Martin blend from Common Man Coffee Roasters, the coffee will earn your votes on the first sip. If you’re up for something sweet, give their Charcoal Waffle ($6.90) and Red Velvet Waffle ($6.90) a go! Top your waffle with any of their 16 premium ice cream flavours ($3), such as Thai Green Tea Ice Cream, which will make you cooler than ever.

For fashionistas who wanna look extra cool in their OOTD shots
Back by popular demand, Starbucks Singapore is collaborating with top fashion brand, alice + olivia, once again, to roll out a collection of gorgeous merchandise. Look how cute the alice + olivia + Starbucks® Tumbler (16 oz) is! It’s even wearing a skirt! Imagine posing on the streets of Orchard Road with one in your hand, you’ll be a Tumblr girl immediately.

BAKE CHEESE TART
For those who will die for cheese (as cheesy as it sounds)
Trying to get into Cupid’s good books, BAKE CHEESE TART has come up with Chocolate Cheese Tarts – a first in Singapore! The chocolate cheese tart is only available from 8 February – 14 February! I reckon that queues might start forming very soon (or has it already started)… well, yeah what’s new? You won’t regret laying your hands on one of these oozy tart babies. A box of 6 retails at $21, and you can get them at both the ION Orchard outlet and Westgate outlet. However, do note that each customer is only entitled to a maximum of 6 pieces!

For the “I SCREAM ICE CREAM” sugar rush
Ooooohhhh, love seems to be in the air and there is nothing better than taking advantage of all the limited edition goodies this week. For sugar addicts, doesn’t Strawberry Lava Cookie, Chocolate Champagne Ice Cream and Red Velvet ice Cream sound tempting? Hear the wows go as you gently cut the baby pink cookie open. Not to mention, they are very instagram-worthy. I can’t wait to grab a Lava cookie all for myself.
