The moment I saw Chef Fiona Ting post about the new popsicles she had created for Andaz Singapore, I was dying to have them. As luck would have it, I had received an invitation to try the new Mala dishes at “Auntie’s Wok & Steam” which is part of the same hotel too. So yes, dessert was pretty much sorted and it couldn’t be more perfect as they helped me to cool down after all the spiciness.
I thought both popsicles were really good in their own way.
The Pulut Hitam flavour, inspired by our local dessert of black glutinous rice, is the slightly heavier one. What I think is particularly clever is the touch of salt in the coconut ice-cream within. Its savouriness pairs deliciously with the layer of sweetish, slightly chewy pulut hitam and gula melaka. Chef Fiona shared that the chocolate used to create the crisp shell coating was chosen because it tastes a little like coconut. Wow - talk about paying attention to the details.
Served with honeycomb from Iran, the Honey Passionfruit flavoured popsicle has osmanthus as well as a layer of compressed pineapple within the passionfruit ice-cream. If you find yourself yearning for something sweet, tart and fruity, this would be the ideal choice.

Fiona Ting who is a fellow Burppler, works as a Pastry Chef at Andaz Singapore and being the very generous soul that she is, insisted on treating Gail and I to some desserts after we had finished our dinner at “Auntie’s Wok & Steam” (we were there for an invited tasting of their new Mala menu). This Pandan Mousse Cake was one of those. It had been recommended to Gail by a friend of hers who said it’s the best pandan cake she has eaten, so naturally, we had to give it a try. We shared the medium size version and enjoyed it very much. Coated in a thin gelatin layer, the core of chiffon cake was surrounded by an airy-light mousse, so every bite was multi-textural and infused through and through with the perfume of pandan.
There are a total of four flavour options for the Pandan Mousse Cake. We had the Original but you can choose to have it in Chocolate, Coconut or Bandung (a traditional concoction of rose syrup and evaporated milk).

Love the pic on hot chocolate and the hot edamame of 10 dollars is really nice! Love the ambience.

The experience at Alley on 25 for a buffet dinner on a Friday night was a little confusing because of the different islands of food counters located at various parts of the dining area, but the food was decently affordable given the price point of S$49.00 per person.

If you were like me, who would typically skip the salad bar (featuring some superfoods there), go straight to the fresh seafood and grab some Fine de Claire Oysters with lemon wedges and be awed by their freshness.

Among all the food options here, the next most impressionable section would be their desserts, with a self-service soft serve machine with lots of chocolate decorations available, and I also somehow liked how they did their bread pudding.

Not forgetting the far end of the restaurant where the grilled meats were found. I enjoyed having their sausages and the slow-cooked Sticky Pork Ribs, but thought that their Australian Angus Beef Short Ribs were sliced too thinly for my liking, as they also tasted a little dry.

Additional fees would apply (from S$40 onwards) if you would like some alcoholic beverages to go with the dinner, and if coffee or tea were something that you tend to order during a hotel buffet dinner, they do not serve them as complimentary.

An otherworldly smokiness is released in manner of genie out of bottle as you bite into the juicy, Korean sweet and invitingly pink core. 4.1/5
