Lee’s Confectionery – Blk 343 Jurong East Street 31

Being located deep in the heartlands of Jurong East, Lee’s Confectionery is a patisserie that is situated in a location that is pretty unlikely for a concept of its kind. Lee’s Confectionery is no doubt a gem in the heartlands, especially considering the lack of cafes around the Jurong East area and how patisseries are…

Relish – Fraser Towers

Being opened by Chef Willin Low, Relish could be said as the spiritual successor to now-defunct Wild Rocket. Relish is a brand that is not a stranger to most in the Singapore dining scene.
