๐Ÿคฉ matcha houjicha latte (10/10)
Absolutely loved how the 2 flavours complemented each other so well. Neither one flavour was overshadowed by the other which was mind-boggling! Highly highly recommend

๐Ÿ˜€ belgium waffles + goma gelato (6.5/10)
The waffle was just alright (light, fluffy but could've been more flavourful) but the goma gelato was nice although if you are looking for that strong black sesame flavour, this might not make the cut (p.s. I would go for matchaya's goma soft serve)

๐Ÿ“Hvala, Chijmes๐Ÿ“
๐Ÿ’ธ Goma (Black Sesame) Cake: $9 ish (inclusive of service charge)
Lucky for us, we managed to snag a seat at Hvala right after lunch before the crowd came, no chill indeed๐Ÿ˜Ÿ Been going to Hvala quite a bit since they were opened and got to say goma cake is the one thing that kept us going back for more - major fan of all things black sesame๐Ÿ˜ Hmm but we feel that the standard has kinda dropped and for itโ€™s price tag (sry but the service charge was quite a turn off as always) and how it gets so crowded during the weekends, weโ€™ve been heading to alternative cafes where we can really chill and chat๐Ÿ˜Œ

Waited 15 minutes to get in and they enforce a 1 hour limit strictly (reminded when 10mins was left). Very well decorated however itโ€™s pretty packed and hard to hear others without raising voice. Hojicha latte was a little too sweet (I had assumed would just be milk and tea).

Maple Miso Cake - $8.80
Shaped like a miniature mountain range, the cake is nice to look at but mild in the taste. Donโ€™t need to worry about the miso taste. Sit down and enjoy the cake first before drinking the matcha beverages

If youโ€™re a Matcha / Hojicha / Black Sesame lover and you havenโ€™t tried Hvala - GO NOW!!!!

Some may feel that this place is overhyped, but those of you who know me would know how much I LOVE matcha/black sesame, so this cafe definitely is one of the top on my dessert list ๐Ÿคฉ Not only do they serve up some great desserts, they are also located in convenient locations (CHIJMES & 111 Somerset) and have great vibes as well!

One of my favourites is definitely the ๐Œ๐š๐ญ๐œ๐ก๐š ๐๐ž๐ญ๐ข๐ญ ๐†๐š๐ญ๐ž๐š๐ฎ (๐’๐†๐ƒ$๐Ÿ–.๐Ÿ–๐ŸŽ++), which is basically BURSTING with matcha in many different textures - glaze, mousse, sponge layer, and crumble ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคค However, I recommend this for sharing with someone else, as it can get quite โ€œgaoโ€ after awhile! But itโ€™s really one of the best matcha desserts Iโ€™ve had in Singapore (though it is admittedly expensive).

Visited on a Thursday noon and was suprise with the crowd. Staff told us that we are limited to an hour of dining but luckily they weren't strict on it. Cake and drinks were so good! I even purchased extra cakes to take home. I enjoyed the Honey Earl Grey cake a lot.
