Eric and I decided to explore this vintage café, AEIOU which is accessible with walking distance from Lavendar MRT station. The café has an interesting theme that does reminisce some of the childhood memories. It is indeed a unique and interesting setup by the owners.
Since most of the instagram photos recommending the ice blended avocado with two shots of espresso, we decided to give it a try. We ordered the Ice Blended Blueberry and Avocado with two shots of espresso each S$8.00. Both has the refreshing taste with the aromatic espresso. Surprisingly well combination I would say.
We ordered Oven-Baked Whole Chicken S$22.90 which is well-received in social media as well. The chicken is stuffed with garlic, rosemary and thyme that gives a fragrance smell. There are sides served. Mash potatoes and sweetcorn with brown sauce and pepper mustard. I personally feel that the chicken meat is juicy and smooth to enjoy. This is just nice for sharing for 2 to 3 persons.
Moolicious Beef Cheeks Pasta S$24.90 was our choice the day. Although the photo does not look appealing due to the colours, this is surprisingly savory. I love the taste of it as it has the Asian mix taste in it. The beef cheeks are so moist and tender with the vinegar taste. The dish is cooked with the tangy balsamic vinegar and thus this explains the slight taste of sourness.
Generally we enjoyed the meal and the services. The staffs are prompt to our response and the foods are served within the time limit. If you are dropping by for a visit, their ice blended fruits with espresso shots is a must order drink. Hopefully you like it as much as I do.

Whenever I heard about waffles, the image that appears in my mind is the squarish shape with ice-cream toppings or savory items on top of it. Oh boy, this time round is different! It is served is thin long waffles stick!
Located at Basement 3 of 313 Somerset shopping mall, there is another form of waffles that think out of the box. This waffle bar is operated by a young couple, Benmin and Lynette. The waffles are categorized into “ Fruitalicious” and “ Timeless Desserts”.
The business is apparently well after office hours on last Friday when we dropped by. Since it’s freshly made upon orders, you may need to wait a while. We had Smurfy S’mores S$3.80 and Berries Delight S$3.80. Healthy fresh fruits topped with the yogurt and cream cheese frosting. But my favourite is the Smurfy S’mores. The chocolate fondue with flame-touched marshmallows and graham crumbs and not overwhelmed with the chocolate sweetness.
Real Vanilla Soft Serve S$3.00 is available with a choice of chocolate fondue, maple syrup or salted caramel sauce. You can add S$2.50 for a cup of vanilla soft serve with waffles too. We tried their vanilla soft serve with maple syrup recommended by Benmin. The soft serve doesn’t melt that fast as we took some photos before enjoying it.
If you are craving for waffles and mind your calories or easy to take away, you can give Hvala Waffles a try when you are nearby. It is convenient to enjoy while doing some window shopping too! Show some support to them and give it a try! Perhaps you might love it!

I don’t often go cafehopping nowadays but I knew I must come to Creamery Boutique at least once to try. Located along one of the shophouses at MountAustin, this ice-cream project is all the way from The Ice Creamist, Creamery Company Limited, Bangkok. It is under the franchise expansion. They offer premium homemade production to maintain the quality of their ice-creams.
Finally got the chance to try with my friends who came from KL for the Labour Day weekend. We arrived the place around 1.45pm and the shop front shutter was half open. We saw people going in and we decided to go in to wait for the operation to starts at 2pm. I was surprised that the café is almost full house when I stepped in. Luckily we found a table.
And so the moment the clock strikes at 2pm, I was the first to queue to place the order at the counter bar. We need to choose the ice-cream flavours to go with the choice of cookies lava. I ordered the chocolate lava with a scoop of Guinness Stout ice-cream RM15.90.
The lavas are cooked on the spot and you can enjoy the fresh and warm oozing lavas. It was a spot-on indulges for us. I need to take a quick snaps before the ice-cream melts fast on top of the warm lava. It was a good combination and I enjoyed the Guinness Stout ice-cream which doesn’t give the taste of bitterness. The chocolate flows in between the flat lava are just like the volcano explodes where you can see the goodness flowing at every direction. I am so craving for it while typing now. Definitely will be back for more!
