Our tastebuds were feeling ‘adventurous’ that night so we decided to try out the Blue Cheese & Walnut Praline Gelato here! We were pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed this flavour! The pungency from the blue cheese stood out (in a very positive way of course), while the walnut praline was sweet, salty and crunchy! It was a great balance of flavours overall! The cone was nothing special, just a typical cone lol.

As we’re huge fan of the Shibuya Toast from After You in Thailand, we’ve been craving something similar. So we decided to order this at our visit here! Overall this Strawberry Banana Toast is decent enough, although it still pales in comparison to After You’s (tbh, it’s tough competition anyway!). We felt that the toast, while crisp, lacked that butteriness on the inside. We did like that the honey and fruits helped to add some sweetness. That said, the cafe itself is really aesthetic, and is a pretty nice place to chill with your +1!

We went with the 3 flavours that sounded the best, which were Stracciatella Di Fragola (Strawberry & Chocolate Chips), Tuscan Cream (Custard Cream) and Cuor Di Cacao (Chocolate 75%, -50% sugars) respectively. I have to say you can taste the quality of each gelato in every bite with its rich texture! My favourite would be the Tuscan Cream, which reminded me of a really light cheesecake. The Stracciatella Di Fragola had a fresh strawberry flavour, and the chips added a nice crunch! And the Cuor Di Cacao had the right balance of bittersweet!

Another must try is their signature Gelato Bun, which is a choux pastry that is really crispy and light! We paired it with Genmaicha & Roasted Pistachio gelato flavours and both were rich and flavourful (especially the Genmaicha), pairing really well with the bun!

If it’s your first visit here & also happen to be a huge durian lover, I’d recommend getting their Four Heavenly Kings as this set has all their popular durian desserts! The platter consists of 2 D24 Durian Puffs, 2 MSW Craquelin Puff, 2 Durian Mochi, and each of them was tasty on their own, although my favourite one is the Durian Mochi! The Durian Mousse (also part of the set), which had generous amount of durian flesh, was also really good and creamy too, although my personal fave is still the one at Serangoon Gardens (if you know you know)!

When I saw @whatisdigesting’s post claiming that the chendol from Yat Ka Yan is one of the best chendols he had in Singapore, I knew I had to try it! And he was right, the chendol here is legit yummy! Love the balance of coconut and gula melaka in this bowl; the creaminess was just nice! Also liked that the red beans were sweet and the green pandan worms were plump and fragrant! I highly recommend this and I will be back to try their other desserts too!

I recently visited Desert Dessert (conveniently located within walking distance from Mayflower MRT Station Exit 3) with my friend, where we enjoyed their desserts like Strawberry Cheese Bingsu & Dark Choco Belgian Waffle w/ Pistachio Gelato. The Bingsu was really refreshing with the combination of strawberries and cheesecake cubes with ice and milk! We also enjoyed their Dark Choco Waffle, which was crispy and fluffy. I recommend pairing it with a scoop of the smooth and nutty Pistachio Gelato.

Had the opportunity to try the sweet & savoury pastry boxes from the highly popular Le Matin Patisserie recently:

Assemblage V2 (Savoury Pastries):
~Beef Tongue & Cheese Croissant Panini
~Escargot Escargot
~Duck & Foie Gras Pithivier
~Chicken & Avocado Sourdough Baguette

Grand Matin (Sweet Pastries):
~Kouign Amann
~Sicilian Pistachio Escargot
~Brioche Feuilletee
~Almond Croissant
~Pain Au Chocolat

I’m not lying when I say that every single one of the pastries were top notch or at least above average in taste. The standouts for me are the Duck & Foie Gras Pithivier (it’s like a tiny duck wellington that’s so rich and creamy), Pain Au Chocolat (the velvety Valrhona dark chocolate pairs exceptionally well with the buttery pastry) and Almond Croissant (not usually a fan of almond pastries but this one is 💯)!

The savoury box (this version will be available for a limited time only) is available for order and delivery via their website at https://www.lematinpatisserie.com, while the sweet box is only available for pick up / dine in at their outlet at 10 Raeburn Park.

Tried this Tiramisu Basque Cheese Cake, the first of its kind in Singapore, from @juleneang a couple of weeks back and it was really enjoyable!

Loved how creamy and gooey the cheesecake was without being too cloying. For coffee lovers, the tiramisu mousse has a divine bitterness that cuts through the richness of the cheesecake. The cheesecake itself is reminiscent of a traditional tiramisu, with elements of Mascarpone cheese infused with Bailey’s Irish Cream and vanilla right in the batter. The whole cake is then topped with a dusting of cocoa powder just like the famed Italian dessert!

If you’re keen, you can DM @juleneang on IG or visit https://www.julsbake.com to place your orders.

1) 24 Karat Mao Shan Wang Cheese Cake (9cm - $20, 15cm - $80): Combining 2 of my favourite items (Mao Shan Wang durian and Cheesecake) into one, this is a really delectable dessert! Made with premium Mao Shan Wang durian, encased within smooth and velvety cheese mousse, before adding 24 Karat pure gold leaf for the finishing touch. Every mouthful is so rich and velvety! Comes in 2 sizes - 9cm (serves 1-2 pax) and 15cm (serves 8 pax).

2) Mao Shan Wang Durian Craquelin ($3.50 / piece): These MSW Durian Craquelins are really shiok! An upgraded version of their popular D24 Durian Craquelin, the MSW durian version is made with premium MSW durian piped into choux with chocolate crusting, and then lightly dusted with gold flakes. Trust me, it’s so addictive that you won’t be stopping at just one!

You can order them from @msdurianpastry’s website at order.msdurian.com. Islandwide delivery or pickup options available.
