The Dispensary – 69 Tiong Bahru Road

26/10/13 – After our meal at Forty Hands, we went to The Dispensary. This was formerly a Chinese TCM medical hall which has since become a shop specializing in cupcakes. This is one of the shops around providing Tiong Bahru with an increase in specialty cupcakes (Kisses’s Bakery, another shop selling cupcakes, is around the corner). The owners were creative in reusing the cabinets and the gate shutters from the TCM to provide a sense of nostalgia of its past.




The Nuts for Nutella ($3) is a chocolate cupcake topped with a layer of Nutella spread and macadamia nuts. Great for Nutella lovers.

The Death By Oreo ($3) is also a chocolate cupcake whipped with chocolate chip cream with a mini Oreo top. If you have a sweet tooth for chocolate, I recommend ordering this.
