Passed by a mama shop & couldn’t resist getting this. First had it in Penang long time back and really liked the crunchy Oreo shell. The ice cream itself is very similar to your regular cookies and cream ice cream, but zhng-ed up with more Oreo crumbs. It’s more pricey here but was still a fun treat to have!

This one has chocolate crepes layered with caramel infused pastry cream. Though the salted caramel glaze lent hints of burnt bitterness and saltiness, we still found this very sweet as a whole. Was definitely a rich and decadent slice that’s best for sharing.

Wouldn’t say this is the best, but it’s a pretty trusty spot for a quick dessert stop in the area. Usually crowded, but service is quick.

Spent our new year’s eve yesterday in Leeter Tunku Kopitiam’s lovely cozy space tucked in Grassroots Book Room. Had an ice rambutan tea and this pumpkin swissroll that we enjoyed very much - it was fluffy soft, with a super light cream and a mild pumpkin sweetness. Came with a side of orange jam that lent a zesty tang. Their bakes are on rotation, so pop by for a surprise on what’s available that day. Also, the internet signal’s pretty poor as they’re in a corner, but that’ll encourage you to set your phone aside and focus on the food and conversations!

Could smell these even before opening the box! The brownies were the dense, fudgey and super chocolatey sort - probably one of the most generously chocolatey ones I’ve had recently. These definitely satisfies any sweet tooth or strong chocolate cravings. Got to say though, it can get a bit gao so we had them cut into smaller squares to share. But this also means you’ve more to go around! More order details on @bakesbybilly.

Tea break at Bread Yard & of course we had to try their cruffins! They have 4 flavours - Passionfruit, Chocolate Hazelnut and these 2 that we went for, Matcha and Lcyhee. Both fillings were generous and weren’t too sweet, but a pity that they weren’t served as warm as we’d like it to be, so we were missing a more distinct crunch and flakiness. Perhaps better if they were heated for a tad bit longer time.

This one’s a very popular dessert choice here at iO but while I did find it likable, I still love the classic tiramisu combination much more! The lightness was nice, but it was a tad too subtle for me.

Have been eyeing these warabi mochi from Block Mochi for a bit and glad we went ahead to get! 4 flavours to pick from - Hei Sugar (brown sugar), Matcha, Sesame and Just Soy (soybean) that comes with their gula melaka & brown sugar drizzle. Was hard to pick a favourite as the matcha and sesame ones were fragrant, while the brown sugar ones had its sweetness came through very nicely. Just thought the soy could do with a tad bit stronger flavour in the mochi itself - though there’s also the syrup to adjust the sweetness. These were impressive, all jiggly soft and delicate, with generous quality coatings! Order deets on @blockmochi.sg.

Bite-sized cookie treats to snack on from Mel.d Bakery - chocolate chips, chocolate chips with hazelnut and butter cookies. Both chocolate chips cookies were very crunchy and lightly chocolatey. Would have liked the chocolate parts to be a tad stronger though! Hazelnut one’s fun for that extra texture, while the butter cookies were buttery and melty without being too crumbly.

A relatively new neighbourhood gelato spot that also serves up waffles, fried finger food and a selection of craft beers. Went with this Banana Biscoff that had biscoff bits and came in quite a big scoop. It had hints of both banana and biscoff that were pretty well balanced, but was hoping the flavours to be stronger. Not as big a fan of the gelato texture that was slightly crumbly. The normal scoops are at $3.50, while premium ones are at $4.30. Double scoops are $6.50.

New concept store by DurianBB. They’ve brought together a menu of drinks, durian desserts and snacks - from milder tasting ones to a stronger few, so you’d get to pick according to your preference. Would say their range leans more to the sweet side. This one here is their Boom Mousse Cake made to look like a mini durian - classified as one of the lighter ones. It has a durian purée + mousse filling and a thin sugar coat exterior. Thought the sugar coating overpowers the light durian mousse, would prefer it without.

Thank you @durianbb.sg for the kind invite! ✨
