We had the Chimney Queen, which came with chocolate soft serve that was rich and not too sweet, topped with their homemade raffaello and orange sauce.

The baked chimney cones had a rather bread-like texture, which we liked it with the crunchy coatings for that crisp mouthfeel but the cone itself was a little too dense, though it didn’t become soggy. Portion is probably too huge for one to finish (even sharing with my friends was a little of a stretch but to be fair we had breakfast right before) - so I think it would be great if they sold relatively smaller sized ones.


Loved how light the mascarpone cream was and a little messy because they were so generous with the fillings!


Do also try the creme brulee soft serve ($8) which is exclusive to Singapore - light, custardy smooth and not too sweet save for the thin caramelised layer which gave a nice crunch that doesn’t stick annoyingly to one’s teeth.

One of Hokkaido’s famous ice cream shop, Naganuma ice-no-ie (which literally means an ice cream shop), has finally reached our sunny shores!

Using 100% raw Hokkaido milk for their specialty soft serves and gelatos to preserve the full flavors and all that milky goodness, you can be assured of the quality and taste here.

Preferred the gelatos to soft serve, because aside from the texture, there were twice as many flavors to choose from - all of which were true to flavour, not too sweet. At the point of our visit, the flavours available were cookies & cream, Haskap yogurt, milk, double cheese, Yame matcha, strawberry milk, yubari melon, mango yoghurt, chocolate, banana and azuki. Though it does vary between flavours, the gelatos are generally pretty smooth.

Particularly loved milk for its milky fragrance (also yay calcium intake for the day 😂), banana which had bits of banana in it, giving little extra bursts of flavour/ texture and of course, Yame Matcha which had a light bitter undertone!

Thank you @naganumaiceco for having us and @cweizhi for extending the invite! 🤗


end your meal on a sweet-savoury note with the one and only dessert in the menu so far (but they’ll be adding more!), Salted Caramel BBQ Floss Cake. The layers are a tad dry if you eat them on its own but it’s alright together with the relatively light buttercream and the flavours actually work, nothing too shocking to the palate 😛.


We tried taro, lychee and pistachio which are available in tub. Pistachio was my favourite out of everything as it was fragrant, roasty and not too sweet! Will wait for it’s turn on the menu😛

The current flavour of 16th October - Sesame flavour is quite strong and earthy so it’s recommended to have it on its own. Having said that, we tried it with the caramel popcorn (made in house, pretty good) which works for a contrasting texture but seemed to dull/ overpower the sesame.


The popular soft serve from Sydney has opened in Singapore, bringing along the classic sea salt flavour that will be permanently on its menu.

The fun part is, there will be a change of flavours twice a month on the 1st and 16th, so there’ll always be something new to try. Choose a flavour (or two), cup/cone and pick toppings as you like. My favourite would be their popcorn - made in house - while those with a sweet tooth can go for the super fun (and also pretty) popping rock, toasted marshmallow or fluffy cotton candy to make your soft serve ott!

The soft serves here are very smooth but also melt pretty quickly so keep your photo-taking sesh short😁. We found the sea salt a little too mild by itself, but paired great with the ribena! While I wasn’t a fan of the ribena flavour by itself, its subtle fruity sweetness seemed to bring out the saltiness better.

Thank you #burpple for the invite and Aqua S for having us! 🤗

Creamy yet light and served as a frozen dessert, the Shiawase Catalana by Sweet Peaces turned out to be quite a fragrant milky delight.

We opted for the $5.80, brûléed cup. The 2-layer caramelised crunch was a little thick and annoying for my old teeth but had a nice hint of bitterness to it. Will still probably get it again when I’m in the area. The Japan Food Matsuri is on from now till 14 October at Takashimaya Square.


Fragrant, not too sweet and I liked how it’s just like bandung, so I guess you either love it or hate it. I’m all for anything-rose so this worked for me!

The only dessert on the menu - creamy; red tea jelly made in house (aromatic but thought it could be even stronger) but I loved the texture. Can’t say the same for the pearls which were rather hard but it could be an off day. Pretty good ending to the meal with this overall.


This is one soft serve that I’ll definitely go down to Matchaya for.

Everything was as I remembered with that nutty fragrance, drizzled with more goma sauce; but the texture didn’t seem as consistently smooth/ creamy.

Shirogoma is exclusive to their pop up at Takashimaya!
