Always Room For Dessert

I have a sweet tooth, enjoy good handcrafted ice cream, and is always hungry for more desserts! Here is a list of cakes, tarts, bingsu, everything.

The bread pudding is interesting as they use croissant, which brought in a nice airy texture. However, I was quite disappointed as it didn't have the buttery fragrance nor the yeasty bread aroma. The custard was rather plain as well. I could be biased because I prefer a soggy bread pudding! The Chantilly cream was light and good, but wasn't enough to salvage the dessert. The hazelnut praline was probably a little burnt as there was a lingering bitterness.

This freak cake tastes as good as it looks! Pillowy matcha sponge cake with matcha buttercream and black sesame frosting. With the black sesame powder base, the nuttiness dominates while the matcha lends a subtle bitterness. Good for 2-3 people to share!

Very large and cheap bingsu, but it lacks the sweetness and milkiness, resulting in a very plain tasting bingsu. I won't say I enjoyed it very much. Between the mango and black sesame, go for the mango as it was sweeter and more flavourful!

Imagine my surprise ploughing through the soft snow ice to find herbal grass jelly inside this glorious purple dessert! It's a tad artificial and sweet but the grass jelly saves it from being one big mess.

I didn't really care about the warm chocolate lava, cake, nor the orange infused vanilla ice cream once I tasted the divine almond nougatine. There's just something magical about caramel and almond that gets me going. Between the chocolate and matcha, I personally preferred the latter. Can't resist matcha!

The mango sorbet was light and fragrant, complementing the lemongrass foam perfectly. The sago I could do without.

The highlight was cracking open the chocolate shell and eating it together with spicy cherry sorbet! Pretty interesting dessert!

Gelato wasn't impressive - it felt a bit sticky and the flavours were mostly misses. To be safe, get the black sesame! The waffles on the other hand, were superb. Crisp, fluffy and eggy, I could eat them on their own. The single scoop of gelato was very generous! $8.90 with the waffle, very worth it. Great respite from shopping at NEX!

Crepe cakes were of varying standards. The rum and raisin was very dry and stodgy and tasted more like chocolate. The raspberry yogurt was better, light and slightly tart with soft crepe layers.

Very good hazelnut and pistachio flavour! So nutty and creamy! Very worth it for $7.50 double scoops! Cone is crunchy and good too. Get the cone!

Not too sweet, pretty smooth mango purée with chunks of sweet mango and pomelo! Shop space is rather small though, probably more catered for takeaways.

The Mac and cheese quiche is quite special, the crust is the croissant kind, while the filling is fluffy and eggy with pieces of macaroni. Strawberry shortcake is very good! The whipped cream is so light and I think the sweetness level is perfect! The passion fruit meringue tart is good too, perfect balance of tart and sweet. Skip the croissant, it wasn't flaky and was rather stale.
