Ongoing Summer fair @isetansg Scotts till 11 July! ✨The sweet potato pie comes in an option of original yellow or purple, which I opted for the latter. The pastry crust is flaky with a caramelised golden brown exterior, with a substantial interior of creamy, thick purple sweet potato filling that withheld a pleasant, subtle tinge of natural sweetness. On the other hand, the cheesecakes paled in comparison, with the crumble base lacking a characteristic buttery fragrance and felt as though it had been stored for quite some time. In short, it didn’t feel fresh and the texture was thick,dense and creamy which might not suited for the faint-hearted. The purple potato flavour came with tiny chunks of purple potato embedded within, while the cheesecake itself was infused with a purple potato flavour. Despite the vibrant lavender-alike purplish hues that provided an aesthetically appealing outlook, the flavour was subtle and barely detectable, masked by the tangy, piquant note of cream cheese. While the earl grey cheesecake did carry off distinct subtle notes of tea flavour on the first few bites, it was unfortunate (and perhaps inevitable) that it faded off almost instantly, overwhelmed by the stronger cheese element. //
On a side note, the lacklustre service here added even more salt to my ‘wound’, with unfriendly stares from the staff if you were to sample and not purchase anything here. Also, when I requested for a box and ice gel pack for my purchase, the staff reluctantly gave in and seemed displeased with her impolite tone and unfriendly gestures .
