It is always exciting to discover another new cafe in the North-East of Singapore. Meet Amber Ember, which only opened less than a month ago along Upper Serangoon Road. The location is not near any MRT station, though there is a bus stop right in front of the cafe. The cafe space is characterised by its mellow pink tones, with a mix of table sizes including a communal table at the back of the restaurant. Concise food menu, and robust coffee, with a take-away counter for caffeine fix in the morning.

Maggie Joan’s Turns 3 with New Chef, Revamped Menus & Refreshed Interiors
The backlane restaurant has a new Head Chef, Seumas Smith, formerly Head Chef at Moosehead, who is also now the Group Executive Chef. The new lunch and dinner menus highlight a Modern European affair, inspired by seasonal ingredients. I love the Shiso tempura and Hamachi crudo almond with trout roe & edamame or a start, both of which with nice Japanese elements. For mains, I enjoyed the local Barramundi with mussels, cavelo nero & parsley nage; as well as the Duck breast with carrot, plum & buckwheat. For desserts, expect the likes of Coconut panna cotta, prosecco & grapefruit, Blackberries, yogurt sorbet & shiso and the complimentary Salted caramel sable Petit Fours.
