It’s a summer oasis at Koko Black

Recently, Koko Black launched their new summer oasis range of desserts and I was invited to come in to a salon and have a tasting of their latest desserts.

How yum does that sound already! As delicious as it sounds, it was … Continue reading It’s a summer oasis at Koko Black

Superstar Waffles

One place I often go for desserts in Northbridge is Superstar Waffles which is located in the lane near Jus Burgers and Is Donburi.
