Here's a reason for pistachio lovers to smile.
Pistachio Everything, a pistachio-themed home business, has opened a physical store at Kensington Square near Upper Paya Lebar Road.
It's product lineup consists of ice cream, pistachio-flavoured kaya spread, pistachio spread, crisps, and cakes.
Besides being handmade in small batches to maintain the product quality, the pistachios used are sourced from Bronte in Sicily, Italy, that promise greater depth than its more common Californian or Iranian counterparts.
Their best-selling pistachio ice-cream costs S$25 a pint while the chunky version is available for S$28.
Originally priced at S$18, the pistachio and pandan kaya is now going for S$15 per 180ml jar as part of a limited-time sale.
Pistachio fans can also try their pistachio spread (S$20) and pistachio crisps (S$25 for 150g).
They have also incorporated pistachios into two cakes — Earl Grey, Elderflower & Pistachio Tiramisu (S$29) and gluten-free Orange, Almond & Pistachio Cake (S$33 for a six-inch cake).
You may order via their website for weekly Saturday delivery.
Delivery is available at S$10 per location and is free for orders above S$100.
Pick-up and walk-in sales are also available at the new store at Kensington Square.
Marinated Char Siew
Kenneth Yong who runs Pistachio Everything also operates The Mixtape Chef as a private chef.
He first launched the Koji Marinated Char Siew on August 12, 2020, under The Mixtape Chef.
It remains as the only product, albeit sold out, on the website at the time of writing.
They recently brought the product back on National Day this year for a limited run.
Priced at S$30 for 250g, it was available for collection at Pistachio Everything's store.
According to the website, Yong also offers private dining experiences and cooking classes, with the former labelled as being "on hiatus" at the moment.
