A crumbly tart base that easily disintegrates on the palate, the salted caramel hides within a thick and viscous chocolate filling. The above beauty makes the statement that the dessert was satisfying a slight understatement; for it was an above board, great homemade tart.

The bakes at Hei Kim are all made in-house and they are good, if this cake speaks for others. The dense pumpkin puff and cake was not a light sponge but full of volume. Coupled with light chai touches - something I was happy paying $7 for.

Faultless eggy creme brûlée under a perfect caramelised shell and above some unadulterated Hokkaido milk ice cream; wrapped in a banal waffle cone.
Thank you Burpplebeyond for sweeting my indulgent stroll around Jewel 🤗

The usual excessive behaviour strikes when my family tastes something we like. One pint of tropical coconut led to 2 the next time we visited fair price and one each of the above flavours. These pints are enough to boycott our usual Hagen Daz at a lower price point at its current promotional price of $9.95.
I might be having ice cream way too often but hey always nice to come home after a day at work to a treat.

The starkly green pandan jelly was too much to be completely natural but I did toast hints of pandan in them. That aside everything else in the bowl made this a good rendition- tribute to the chendol we are familiar with as Singaporeans; unadulterated ingredient include red beans, Gula Melaka sauce and coconut milk.

Call me basic but aesthetically appealing desserts are my things like the above part (II). Even though these were commercial cinnamon buns that remind me of Mc cafe’s version with more flavours, they’d make any child-that-loves-them-sugar ‘s day.

Pro-tip: these go at $6/$8 for 4; $10 for 6 in the late evening depending on demand and supply

If you have not seen Magnum’s pleasure garden campaign for the new Macadamia Salted Caramel Magnum series.... you clearly have not been on social media 😂 or at City Hall station 😬
Branding aside, Magnum has truly finesse indulgent chocolate treats. The signature chocolate coat with Australian macadamia nuts works like a charm beside salted caramel ice cream that fares, well beside some artisan ice creamery; or better than others.
Not sure if this comes in their mini version but I’d suggest skipping the mini and going for the regular which was a perfect portion for one IMHO.
P.S: Thank you Burpple for the invite to the Magnum Pleasure Garden✨

What have I been up to during my 4 years of school terms in SMU? I questioned myself since I’ve never set foot into Merely’s Sunshine Plaza branch.... may be I wasn’t in school that much 🙊 but boy have I been missing out on the ice cream here! Now more conveniently located at Tampines Hub (for me personally)- I am mighty please with the smooth scoops here that so easily cools one with a worthwhile sugar rush esp in the recent heat; top favourites being the best selling salted butterscotch, earl grey and CNY pineapple tart flavour. The last I sincerely hope becomes a fixed flavour on the menu!

What I was really here for was their cheesecake which I read was one of the best in Singapore. I’d only sadly learnt there is no per slice version but the cafe takes whole cake order instead. We settled for the cheese tart that had quite a good cheese filling but the crumbly and dry biscuit tart base was way too tastelessly health conscious for our liking.

One of the rare restful Saturdays brightened up by an afternoon tea spread with the parents and Friend ❤️
The assortment of draft cold brew teas here are great and something I’d return for; whatever the draft process is you’d get refreshing tea with just the right thickness if you understand where I’m coming from. Any trace of bitter tea that has been sitting around for way too long is completely absent in all the teas we had 👍🏻

As for the desserts the dense chiffon cake was an absolute sweet treat and the cream puffs are exquisite with rich flavoured cream that weren’t saccharinely sweet. The only one that did not exceed expectations was the crumbly scones that my picky palate that has grown accustomed to certain type of scones from my London exchange would not order again.
