Unbeknown to many locals, Joe & Dough is a homegrown brand founded by Singaporean couple Damien Koh and Dawn Wee. The very successful coffee and sandwich chain currently has NINE outlets in Singapore.
Joe & Dough‘s latest outlet has gone sky high set on Level 36 of Capitol Tower, accompanied by high floor-t0-ceiling windows overlooking the Central Business District. Getting up to this ‘sky-cafe’ can be done by obtaining an access card from Capital Tower Concierge Counter located at the main lobby on Level 1.
I have had the privilege of joining the amazing team at Joe & Dough for the Christmas party and preview of their holiday bakes, including a hands-on session of piping Gingerbread myself. It was fun decorating our own Gingerbread man, but I can tell you it wasn’t easy at all.
Look at the actual Gingerbread Man (below) done by the Joe & Dough baker chefs versus the one I did (above), you can tell that I was amateurishly bad at it.
We were also treated to a yuletide spread – including various Joe & Dough favourites and scrumptious festive bakes highlighted below.
SANTA’S CHRISTMAS SANDWICH ($9.80) – Available for in-store
Slices of smoked turkey ham complimented by sweet apple cranberry sauce, Emmental cheese, roasted onions, bell peppers and crisp baby romaine in sweet potato loaf.
