Antoinette Queen’s Kaya Toast
Most of us have grown up eating kaya toast, but Antoinette’s new Queen’s Kaya Toast takes our humble breakfast food to a new level.
The ‘toast’ is a house-made baguette with a layer of kaya made with coconut cream and pure pandan juice. It is then topped with Echire, an artisanal butter known for its rich flavour and sprinkled with fleur de sel salt. It truly seems fit for royalty.
$10, available from 1 Aug

What better way to celebrate Singapore’s golden jubilee than with the “King of Fruits”? Inspired by the colours of the Singapore flag, Goodwood Park Hotel’s limited edition Durian Mousse Cake features layers of white and crimson sponge that alternate with creamy D24 durian mousse. Mm…
The Durian Mousse Cake is crowned with an icing sheet adorned with bold red and white patterns and the iconic SG50 logo.
