Fanntasy Tarts as Sweet Mother's Day Gift

Fann Wong has launched a seasonal exclusive Yuzu Matcha Tart (S$59) to add to Mother's Day celebrations. The sweet and tangy combo is decorated with rose petals. The buttery sable base houses a layer of fluffy almond sponge. It is then layered with matcha cremeux, a velvety and creamy filling infused with premium Japanese green tea powder. The tart is finished with tangy yuzu curd to balance the rich and earthy matcha. Just look at how indulgent it is. 

Also returning are the all-time favourites Valrhona Chocolate Tart (S$58) and Raspberry Sakura Yogurt Tart (S$58). For the Valrhona Chocolate tart, the chocolate cremeux is made with Valrhona 70% dark chocolate and a layer of delicate almond sponge. First unveiled as last year’s Mother’s Day treat, the Raspberry Sakura Yoghurt Tart is a multi-layered tart featuring Greek yogurt mousse, almond sponge and raspberry marmalade.

The three offerings will be available on Wednesday, 12 April 2023 at 1.05pm, via All tarts are while stocks last and can be pre-ordered for Mother's Day.

My kids are too young (and poor cos I control the pocket money), so maybe I should get this for myself since nobody else will. Yo, all single moms out there, you deserve it too. God knows life is tough enough. 😄

Chef Haikal's alkove: casual French Bistro/Cafe at Kovan

Chef Haikal Johari has opened a casual French-inspired bistro called alkove at Kovan. It's lovely he is bringing a slice of his fine-dining expertise from vaunted establishments like Joel Robuchon and Les Amis to the heartland crowd. You may even remember him from Alma by Juan Amador. I met him when he was making the unforgettable recovery from the accident that had paralysed him from shoulders down. But as the picture of determination, he defied the odds and started walking again. And Alma kept its Michelin star for at least three years running. 

While he's known for his exceptional modern-European dishes with Asian influences, Chef Haikal is making unpretentious crowd favourites at this bistro. Think well-executed classics.
