Fans of cookies and brownies ought to be familiar with Whiskdom, a home-based bakery turned physical bakery.
Previously located at Havelock 2, a mall at Clarke Quay, the popular bakery has relocated and launched a brand new dine-in concept in Bugis.
Sweet-toothed customers walking along North Bridge Road will be absolutely spoilt for choice by the mind-numbingly diverse range of bakes ranging from simple dark chocolate fillings to more unique creme brulees.
The bakes are not crazy pricey at S$6.50 per cookie or brownie, considering how hefty they are. We could feel ourselves getting kinda full just from eating one brownie — it was so so rich.
Personally, I prefer huge chunky Levain-Bakery-style cookies that are basically as big as your palm — which is exactly what Whiskdom specialises in.
As much as we enjoyed the nice crunchy crust and chewy insides of the traditional Chunky Chip Walnut (S$6.50), the Matcha Lava (S$6.50) stole the show with that flow.
Perhaps it’s a bit sweeter than usual matcha but it’s got a decent amount of earthy notes and more importantly, plenty of silky texture to compliment the already great cookie dough. A definite must-order.
As far as brownies go, there are few places that do a mean blackout brownie, and Whiskdom is one of them.
These babies were moist, slightly fudgy, and chock full of fillings, like gooey and ultra-decadent dark chocolate. That said, the richness does overpower the fillings a bit.
But you can really find something for everyone at Whiskdom — there’s the popular Speculoos Delight (S$6.50), bittersweet Matcha Cocoa Brownie (S$6.50), fruity Raspberry Dark Chocolate (S$6.50), and even a Gimme S’mores (S$6.50) that’s embedded with a gratuitous amount of toasted marshmallows.
The bakeshop has also made its first foray into the savoury world with a selection of loaded bagelwiches.
Go for the Korean-inspired K-Bae-Gel (S$15.90), a tried-and-tested combination of kimchi chicken, gochujang aioli, and kimchi slaw. Alternatively, the Eggsplode (S$12.90) is heaving with creamy egg salad, hardboiled eggs, and furikake.
Besides coffee like your typical Black (S$4.50) and White (S$5.50), you can now try speciality drinks like the trendy Dalgona Coffee (S$7.50), topped with crunchy honeycomb, and the Whiskdom Galaxy (S$6.90), blue pea-infused strawberry soda with konjac pearls.
A second dine-in outlet is slated to open in Orchard Central very, very soon — new dessert options in town are always welcomed.
