The cendol had the right amount of gula melaka, which gave it its characteristic sweetness and fragrance, and didn’t overpower the coconut milk which made it sufficiently creamy. The shaved ice was fine enough such that each spoonful was smooth. Didn’t come with red beans and most of the other toppings apart from the green pandan ‘worms’ but am personally not a fan of the rest of them so this wasn’t a problem for me.

Nothing beats ice cream on a hot day (which is everyday in Singapore) and the Honey Goldilocks ($6.40) from 21 Cube Artisan hits the spot!

This one comes with a s'more wrapped sugar cone, organic wildflower honey, graham crumble and honey comb. Surprisingly, it's not cloyingly sweet despite the numerous toppings - this can be attributed to the appropriately-coined "mild-flavoured" vanilla soft serve ice cream itself being really light and refreshing. It wasn't overly rich, and helped to balance out the sweet toppings. What's more, the cone is huge and the portion given plus quality definitely makes it worth your dollar.

Many thanks to Burpple for the invite and the good hosts of 21 Cube Artisan for hosting!

This creme brûlée french toast looked so good, but fell so short of expectations. After reading good reviews about this, the end result was really quite disappointing. The toast was dry, bordering on stale, while the outside was slightly burnt.

Taste-wise, the brioche had none of the buttery goodness you would expect and the dish as a whole could be sweeter. The scoop of ice cream helped in adding a bit of wetness/sweetness to the dish, but ultimately it was too little relative to the amount of toast. Maybe it was a bad day, but I would give it a miss and not order this.

The waffle was quite well done - fluffy outside with a nice crisp outer layer. The portion of ice cream was just right, providing sufficient 'wetness' to compliment the waffle.

The various layers of this cake have differing complementary textures, ranging from the crunchy biscuit base to the smooth and creamy mousse. The sweet hazelnut mousse balances out the slightly more bitter chocolate sponge, making each bite of this chocolate cake even more delicious and enjoyable. A good way to end the meal!

The hotcakes from Curious Palette are always amazing - the fluffy ricotta hotcake is prepared only when it's to be served so it's steaming fresh when you cut into it. I really like the addition of ricotta as it makes it so fragrant and really adds to its flavour and aroma (so it doesn't just taste like all the other pancake/waffle/hotcakes out there). You gotta wait quite a bit for them to prepare it (20-30min), but I would say it's worth it. If only they gave a bit more ice cream/peach to help cut through the hotcake or add a bit more wetness cause it can get a little gelat after a while (because the ricotta makes it so rich) - but still good nonetheless! Excellent for sharing for 3-4 pax because the portion is so huge.

Was a little let down because as a whole it tasted just like normal caramel and could have been saltier. The lava centre would have been better if it was more flowy as well. Overall, still good, very decadent, but a little too sweet for my liking and would have been more balanced if it was a bit more savoury.

This cake nicely incorporates some familiar local flavours that we all love. While making a twist on pandan cake is not that novel anymore, House does a pretty darn good version - soft pandan sponge spread with coconut cream and drizzled with a generous serving of gula melaka. One slice might not be enough!

Signature rice doughnut served with cookie butter soft serve ice cream. The freshly fried rice doughnut was served hot from the fryer and complimented the cold ice cream really well. Since it's a rice doughnut, the exterior is slightly crispier than the average doughnut l while the inside has a gooey, chewy texture - incredibly delicious especially when paired with the cookie butter ice cream. The ice cream was soft, creamy, and not icy at all - although you gotta eat this fast as the heat from the doughnut melts it rather quickly. Then again, it's unlikely that this will stay on the table for long.

While it's essentially just a deconstructed ice cream cone, I give it props for the amazing caramel iced bananas and the delicious peanut butter ice cream. The flavors mixed really well together, especially the brownie bits and ice cream. While I'm not usually a fan of peanut butter, the peanut butter taste was just right, and not too overpowering. It's not too filling, so it's perfect for sharing with a friend after your meal.

At only $2 a pop, there's no reason not to get this (or a couple). The slightly lemony/orange marshmallow was toasted such that the exterior was a crispy layer of caramelisation, while the inside was gooey and soft. This beats all the self-BBQ ones you've had so far for sure.

Really overdue (considering that this is so near my place) - finally managed to try their waffles and I would say they live up to expectations! I liked that their waffles wasn't the typical, round, crispy-outside-fluffy-inside variation that we all know. The waffle is quite crispy throughout, but isn't tough, and is almost like a soft biscuit. Really liked the texture. But the most surprising and best part of this was their coconut sauce. Generously dribbled all over the dessert, it gave it a nice coconuty fragrance and added sweetness. The flavours really mixed well together, and I would say this was pretty good. Would definitely come back for more.
