Matcha & Pistachio Double Scoop ($8) Among the many flavour choices that called out to us, we chose the matcha and pistachio - both classic and common flavours. Not too sweet, which I appreciated. Pistachio tasted exactly like pistachio which is great because there are other ice cream parlours that tend to get carried away and try to create a more complex pistachio flavour when no one asked for it. Matcha was sweeter than the pistachio, quite powdery and was unfortunately forgettable.

lychee yuzu sorbet and apiary flavor after trying this extremely popular dessert joint, it has easily become one of my favorite places for ice cream. the yuzu lychee was refreshing and tasted authentic while the apiary flavor with honey through it (amongst other stuff) was creamy and rich without being too much - a good mix of two flavors. hard to get a seat in this popular place though!

I’ve made no secret of my love for Apiary and their Blue Milk, but oh friends I think I may have just found a new favourite flavour. For a special delivery this time, I reigned in my insane desire to have 2 pints of Blue Milk and decided to give The Bounty a go. That’s coconut ice cream, with toasted desiccated coconut and dark chocolate chips folded in — SO GOOD. The base is creamy yet light, boasting the fabulously buttery and fruity profile of coconut without being too in-your-face; people who aren’t the biggest fans of coconut (like L) would still like it. The desiccated coconut actually carries most of the coconut flavour, adding a lovely crunch and nuttiness. I’d say The Bounty comes this close to dethroning Blue Milk’s top spot in my heart — but just close. If you don’t have a good buddy armed with a car and willing to send you some ice cream goodness, Apiary’s also doing deliveries right now; deets on their ig.

Vegetarian Fine Dining Veggies are the new “fetch”. At Joie, an assortment of vegetables are beautifully plated and carefully crafted to create an exciting 6 course set lunch menu. Started off with a cup of cheese sticks that much resembled raw spaghetti 🍝 to munch on while we waited for the other dishes 🤓. We were then told to cleanse our palettes with a shot of their refreshing juice nestled in a bed of crushed ice * boujEee* 🥃. Petit Fours included faux sashimi (not a fan of actual raw fish so this was great), a very random cracker and a droplet bursting with pomegranate juice YUM! Made the idiot decision of ordering Charcoal Coated Tempura — super uninteresting, should’ve gone with the Baby Root on truffled mash. Had AN AMAZING bowl of mushroom soup but it was SO tiny 😞 Had the Gnocchi which had mushroom sauce poured over. Pretty good. My friend had the Duo Ravioli platter which was delicious too. I want to lament about the portion but I have to remind myself that this is “fine dining” 😂. Went with the Red Wine Poach Pear with Lime Sorbet (tad too sour) which I thought could’ve been presented better... pear 🍐 looks bludgeoned to death. Drinks were super average tending to diabetically bad. Could barely finish my Hawaiian Blue mocktail aka my blue artificial colouring and syrup water. Hoping for more consistent quality throughout the courses. Would still come back to try their other creative takes and for the tranquil view of the Orchard Central rooftop garden (MUST ask for the seat with the view!!!). Joie is perfect for occasions and heading towards that meat-free lifestyle 🌳 🙌🙌🙌

Layers Of Red Bean & Yam Fine-dining dessert lol. The centrepiece was red beans in yam paste separated by pastry. It was rather underwhelming and I believe the fanciness merely helped to mask that fact. Came with an ingot of ice cream.

Ice Mallow Apple Melody Mallow flowers, apple juice, guava juice. This was unreal good. If anything, it taught me that apple and guava are bedfellows. It was so refreshing. Came with cut apple.

Tagliolini Lobster Pasta DIY ($38). I cooked and plated this myself, I hope I did ok. 🔸 That's the fun part about Zafferano's DIY menu, where Chef Andrea will include all necessary ingredients and sauces, and it's easy to simply heat up the sauces in a pot of boiling water or in the oven, according to the instructions he gives in scroll that came with the ingredients. He'll even include edible flowers and cress for decoration, and that's the game changer when it comes to plating. 🔸 In this pack, you'll receive Chef Andrea's house-made tagliolini pasta, poached half Canadian lobster, a special tomato/lobster sauce, and edible flowers/cress for decoration. You won't go wrong, I can't cook and I think my pasta still tasted good, cos most of the work has been done by Chef Andrea and team.

Today's a special day that Chef @andrea.de.paola and fiancée had been looking forward to, because they were supposed to get married today at a charming location back at chef's hometown in Italy, over the Easter holidays which is a major event for his culture. But covid happened, as we now look forward to their new wedding date in June, as I also look forward to dining in his restaurant by then. 🔸 Here's wishing Chef Andrea and his fiancée a lifetime of love and happiness! The wedding day will come and go, but may your love forever grow 💕 🔸 Pictured: Cioccolato, a chocolate dessert part of his newly launched $148++ five course Chef’s Tasting Menu, which would have to be deferred due to the COVID-19 dining restrictions.

celebratory dinner: part III almost forgot to mention the appetisers! don’t be fooled by the appearance of a small portion of this salmon starter - it’s not only both tasty but also just the right amount of filling for an appetiser :) worth the additional $8 top-up!

Souffle Pancakes with Cheese These were so unique! I'm mad about pancakes so this is right up my alley. These were cooked right in front of us on the griddle and there was cheese sprinkled in the middle with a glorious golden drizzle of gula melaka sauce. There is a nice brown crisp exterior and the center is foamy and fluffy without being too sweet and there isn't an eggy taste at all. The melty cheese gives that salty, slightly savory pop and the gula melaka truly shines with a rich coconutty flavor. It is truly the epitome of fuwa-fuwa. I got to flip my own pancakes and then eat it with tiny spatulas. It's just so cute and fun. ❤️ Not saying it's the best pancake I've eaten, but it was really about the experience. And I really enjoyed myself here.

Grilled Whole Ika An entire grilled squid ($12)! The whole thing was cooked in generous amounts of butter which perfumed the squid and gave it a lovely, rich, salty flavor. The squid itself is generously sized and has quite a nice bouncy texture, and it wasn't chewy nor did I have to break my jaw trying to chew it into pieces, which I appreciated. I also liked that I got to try different parts of the squid like the legs and head, etc.

Mix Monjayaki Monjayaki is a runnier version of okonomiyaki (think melted cheese consistency). You scrape it hot and gooey off the griddle with tiny spatulas. The mixed monjayaki ($16) has bacon, prawn and squid mixed in, and I recommend it because it means each bite has the texture of gooey monjayaki, crunchy prawn, bouncy squid and savory pork. It's got a totally different mouthfeel and a starchier taste compared to okonomiyaki, but really fun to eat. Towards the end, the monjayaki gets caramelized on the grill, which results in being ridiculously crispy and delicious. Add a tiny dab of okonomiyaki sauce and bonito flakes for that final dash of seasoning.
