The weather these days has been crazy hot and we’re just constantly looking for chilled drinks or something icy cold. Found ourselves at the newly renovated Golden Mile Food Centre and we bought a bowl of simple Longan Ice! Was surprised by the generous amount of jelly this came along with at this price tag. Liked that it’s not too sweet and definitely helped so much in cooling us down.

The stall seem to specialise in puddings, from egg puddings to matcha puddings - will definitely be back to try them!

Haven’t had brownies in a while and recently got to try some from Fudge It Lah. Their Classic chocolatey ones are made with Belgian chocolate and cocoa powder. Preferred these toasted up for the more crumbly bite and paired with ice cream to balance out the texture. They were sufficiently chocolatey and not super sweet.

There’s an Easter promo coming up for the month of April for mix-and-match flavours, more order details are on their page. Thank you @fudgeitlah for sharing these with me! ✨

Fudge It Lah’s Biscoff Brownies are their signature classic Belgian chocolate ones, topped with crunchy biscoff biscuits. Thought these were a tiny bit dry overall and the biscoff flavour wasn’t as distinctive.

Was so happy to be back at Denzy Gelato! Had to wait quite a bit for a table but as usual, service was friendly and we enjoyed their gelato very much. First try of their waffle today and it’s not the best, but it didn’t disappoint either. Liked that it wasn’t too airy and had a good crisp! The two scoops we picked were Yoghurt Speculoos (Premium) and Whisky & Salted Pecan Brittle (Specialty).

Always loved Denzy’s Honey Yoghurt flavour and when I saw the Yoghurt Speculoos, I had to try! Thought these two flavours went very nicely together. The speculoos didn’t overwhelm the tangy yoghurt and there were bits of crunchy biscoff included. The Whisky & Salted Pecan Brittle was not bad though not as striking in its flavour, but as with the other scoops so far, liked the creamy texture and that it wasn’t too sweet. Waffle was $5 with a scoop of gelato at $3, and top up of $1 for premium flavours or $1.20 for specialty flavours.

Broke my unlucky food streak day yesterday when we didn’t have to queue much here at Roji! First step in was to the cute DIY ordering counter to decide on 1 of the 4 ice cream flavours and 2 toppings - we went with matcha ice cream + Oreo cream cheese + salted cherry jelly. Other ice cream flavours were Belgian chocolate, milk and black sesame.

The portion was smaller than what we estimated from photos. A pity that the toppings we had were average and didn’t add much to the whole dessert, but we enjoyed the matcha shaved ice cream sheets that had bittersweet tones. Wouldn’t be something I’d queue long for, but was a fun dessert to have!

The talented duo of The Tough Cookie constantly surprises and impresses - how pretty do their new tartlets look! They started off with crunchy bite sized cookies that I couldn’t get enough of (favourite is their oatmeal cranberry), and gradually expanded to brownies and now tartlets. These were a satisfying treat that wasn’t too sweet! There’s 2 flavours, Mixed Fruits with a brown butter shell & Earl Grey Chocolate that has an earl grey infused rich valrhona chocolate cream layered with crunch on a chocolate shell. Especially liked the touch of saltiness in the chocolate here. Thought the shells could be a bit sturdier, but also loved the lightness of them. Even though they were refrigerated overnight, the shells retained a very lovely crunch.

The sweet owners are also extending a complimentary delivery promo from now till end April for orders $30 and above, just quote ‘cweizhi’. More order details @thetoughcookie.sg! ✨

Mocchi Singapore is a relatively new dessert stand located nearby the market entrance of Chinatown Food Street. Felt that the desserts were pricey considering their size, though they indeed put in much thought on the designs. This dome-shaped matcha crepe had a layer of matcha cream sitting atop the crepes, as well as matcha custard on top that oozes out upon cutting. Texture of the matcha cream was smooth, but the matcha flavour itself was a lot more mild, on the milkier end and a touch sweet. Unfortunately, not something I’d recommend.

Had these pretty pound cakes from You Knead Cakes as part of their valentine’s day bake box collaboration with @papermestiere, who designed cute sloth series cards that came together. 4 different flavours - lemon chia seed, pistachio, orange chocolate marble and yuzu. Got to say we were very pleasantly surprised as although they were dense like how pound cakes are, they weren’t the typical heavy or dry sort. Each of the 4 flavours came through distinctly and were mildly sweet. More order details at @youkneadcakes!

A portion came with 3 slices of brioche toasts topped with bananas, salted caramel sauce and whipped cream. The eggy toasts were done very soft and had no problem soaking up the salted caramel. Quite sweet but was a pretty likable sharing dish that’s more of a homely rendition I’d say. Was definitely hopping for more crunch to balance out the textures here, but they do also have another version served with candied bacon.

Thank you @sodcafesg for the kind invite! ✨

Ben & Jerry’s newest flavour collaboration with Netflix! Flavour’s brown butter bourbon and almonds ice cream with roasted almonds and cherries. I’m not a huge fan of almond flavoured foods, but enjoyed this! Chunks of cherries gave nice bits of sweetness.

Spotted this new flavour that was available in replacement of the Mango Passion flavour! While it was a bit sweet for me, how these two flavours came together was a pleasant surprise. The coconut part lent that refreshing touch on top of the lychee’s fruity sweetness. They didn’t overwhelm each other as well. Texture of this scoop was creamy and slightly thick/sticky.

Note that both the signature and their sorbet flavours are not applicable for Burpple Beyond.

Tarts in Pineapple Basil, Raspberry Oolong Milk Tea and Orange Ginger. Was very impressed by how intricately made Migi Bakes’ tarts were. Not only were they gorgeous, each flavour was thoughtfully put together. There’s also much more that goes on within each filling - taking our favourite of the box, Raspberry Oolong as example, it has fresh lychee bits as the base, with oolong milk tea, raspberry couverture and osmantheus goji agar on top. Thought the ginger in the Orange Ginger could be stronger cause even tho I’m not usually a fan, it worked harmoniously here & I hoped it was a tad more distinct. The tarts had just the right amount of mild sweetness too. 

More order details over at @migibakes, thank you Migi for your tarts with me! ✨
