AJ Delights is a modest looking stall at the Alexandra Village Food Centre, commonly known as AV. It is run by a couple offering freshly baked muffins daily and some cookies and brownies too. Most customers are there for their muffins.
At AJ Delights, they offer 16 flavours daily but all the muffins were baked in small batches to ensure freshness so you don’t get all 16 flavours at any one time.
When I was at the stall, I saw approximately 7 types of muffins and were selling fast.
I got all except the Green Tea Muffin. My six muffines were Mocha, Orange Chocolate, Monster Green Tea, Walnut Banana, Double Chocolate and Oreo.
The muffin is soft and a little dense, not too buttery and has a nice flavour.
A tip from the owner, call them to reserve for the flavours you desire. I will do that the next time.

My first impression of The Tastemaker Store at Havelock was simple and sleek and very cosy and comfy cafe. In simple terms, feel like home.
Thinking that it might be quiet during lunch on a weekday since it is in a neighbourhood but I was wrong. It was almost full.
The menu is pretty simple and straightforward, offering various local delights with a twist and some western fare.
After looking at the menu, I was certain of what I wanted. I was pretty hungry and greedy that day during lunch.
I was very interested in the Lemon Curd + Clotted Cream Toast. It was offered as a set which included two soft-boiled eggs and a coffee. The lemon curd toast was very GOOD! Since the bun was cut into half. The top half was not spread with the lemon curd so I dipped it into the eggs after adding a teaspoon of dark soya sauce. It was so nostalgic. This is real COMFORT FOOD. For the bottom half with the lemon curd spread, I spread half with clotted cream. The lemon curd wasn’t too sourish nor sweetish, though on the whole it was on the sourish side. The half without clotted cream tasted very fruity while the other half with clotted cream tasted creamy and fruity. I like both.
I am not a Yam Cake fan, since I read various good review of the yam cake so thought of trying it. They are very generous with the ingredients added. Lots of dried shrimps, fried shallots, chinese sausages and they added pumpkin to enhance the sweetness of the yam cake. I prefer it to be a lighter saltier.
My black coffee that comes with the toast was equally good. It has a full body and low acidity with a good aroma. It was a robust coffee. It taste great even when it got cold.

It was a nice, simple cafe serving delicious comfort food. As I was writing the post, I was craving for the Lemon Curd + Clotted Cream Toast with the soft-boiled eggs. Certainly, I will be back for this yummy yummy food.
