Presenting a vision in purple: Here’s where you can go hunt down those Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet coloured food:
1. Chef Yamashita
A mind-blowing creation of Chef Yamashita’s, the Oimo is a luscious purple sweet potato cream piped on top of their signature almond tart base filled with homemade custard.
2. Food Republic
What was once everyone’s all-time favourite childhood treat, this gelatinous dessert is the perfect remedy to ingest (don’t choke) on a hot sunny day along with a side nostalgia.
3. Kong Guan
Us locals take our Paus very seriously. You can almost find all sorts of Paus with different fillings from sweet to savoury right here in Singapore. Tell us what is your favourite steamy snack in the comment section below.
Made with whole purple grains and 100% steam-baked, these Purple Wheat Noodles are naturally rich in anthocyanins and lower in fat. They also come in a range of refreshing flavours guaranteed to “instantly” please even the most discerning and health-conscious of noodle lovers!
5. Kueh Ho Jiak
Kueh Ho Jiak literally translates to “very delicious kueh” and it sure is! Savour the great taste of their freshly made kuehs made using healthy ingredients with no preservatives or artificial colouring added.
6. Pine Garden
They specialise in making old favourites shine anew. And with more than 34 years of history in making cakes and baked goods, Pine Garden’s recipes comes right from the heart.
7. Proofer Boulangerie & Patisserie
With outlets spread across almost every corner in Singapore, surely you would have caught a whiff of Proofer’s freshly baked pizza somewhere somehow. But check out some of their patisserie and baked goods too, they are yummy, we can vouch for it.
8. Rive Gauche
One of the longest standing Japanese-French inspired patisserie around in Singapore since 1992, they have been making macarons before it even became a “millennial thing”. Chomp down on this raspberry beauty with a chocolatey ganache filling.
9. Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant
Move over Liu Shao Bao (Salted Egg Yolk Bun), because the newer and more innovative Sweet Potato Custard Bun is here to stay. Recently launched at Swee Choon, we hope that this yummy purple ball of molten salted egg yolk would become a permanent item on its menu, pretty please.
