Rather heavy price tag for the size. Carrot cake was moist, not heavily spiced, though lacking in textures such as crunchy walnuts, juicy raisins or even chunkier grated carrots etc. Ratio of cake to cream cheese almost 1:1. My ideal is 2:1.

Cream cheese frosting was delightfully light and sweet though. Not all that bad but wished I went over to Como Cuisine for desserts instead!

So good, you’d wish you didn’t have to share!!

The skin was softer and less sticky than usual and it has this intense pandan scent and flavor! Refreshing change to have chocolate truffle (not oozy) instead of the classic flowy gula melaka. Love this so much, I’ll gladly have it even without any filling!!

Yummy soft mochi made of bracken starch then tossed in super legit matcha powder! Perfect dessert to end off a heavy meal 😋

Açaí topped with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, kiwi, granola, coconut flakes, chia seeds, cacao nibs, pumpkin seeds.

The Açaí berry base has a nice icy consistency. This places uses the original blend from sambazon, so it’s already sweetened with guarana, then blended with bananas, coconut water. Refreshing and guilt free (somewhat) dessert ! 😋

Finally tried this highly acclaimed cheesecake after hearing so much abt ‘the Hilton’s cheesecake’. Well, they have several types of cheesecakes - blueberry, walnut. Decided to go for the good old American cheesecake

Light, velvety, suede-like consistency, this cheesecake is tangy, smooth and rich. Not bad at all! But I personally prefer my cheesecake on the dense side. My biggest gripe is with the almost non existent graham crust! 😭

Unconventional looking tart. I checked in with the waiter again just in case he got our order wrong. 😅 This date tart is not a regular item on the menu, be sure to check on its availability

With a tart crust that is topped with soft, sweet, luscious fresh dates and over this is a blanket of the silkiest just set vanilla bean custard.

No surprise that this interplay between the aromatic rich yet light custard, the thin layer of sticky sweet dates and buttery short pastry is such a hit!

Choice of traditional or limoncello. We went for the former!

Lady fingers used were store bought, but the flavor was certainly not compromised! Every part was well soaked with the coffee syrup with the liquor!! Love it especially so when the liquid oozes out when you dig your spoon into the sponges 😋

Located on the 40th floor of CapitaGreen, Artemis presents an amazing repertoire of Mediterranean inspired flavors. You can also enjoy the view of the stunning Marina Bay cityscape!

Part of Executive Set Lunch:
Two courses - 45 / Three courses - 52

Moist but light and fluffy orange cake, with an intense orange flavor. Loved the yogurt ice cream! Could do without the saw dust looking component and the little meringues but ah well, they do look pretty! 😅

Blended Açaí, mixed berries, banana, coconut. Topped with granola, banana, strawberry, kiwi, mango, coconut flakes (swapped to cacao nibs)

The base is made up of Selva Açaí blended with berries and coconut water. I do appreciate that they do not use artificial sweeteners but I’ll prefer a more icy consistency with the addition of ice to the base. Homemade granola was yummy and had a nice tinge of spice.

The cafe is more like a takeaway joint with minimal seating. They offer a wide range of offerings from soft serve (yoghurt/Açaí/twist), cold press juices, fruit and Açaí based smoothies to toasts! Most of these are perfect on the go, great as well as a mid day snack or after lunch treat. Will definitely be back to try soft serves and the Açaí based smoothie. Finally found another place that offers the combination of Açaí and coffee in a smoothie other than project Açaí 😋

Unapologetically buttery thin-crusted pecan pie loaded with toasty aromatic pecans embedded in the rich, gooey, fudgy chocolatey filling. The dense combination of the gooey interior of pecan pie really complements the crispiness of the top layer.

Each bite is unassumingly delish with a robust, nutty crunch and a sticky brownie like filling that isn’t cloyingly sweet.

Though chocolate and pecans are an irresistible combination, I prefer my pecan pie the more traditional way- more of the spiced flavor with the use of cinnamon, brown sugar and molasses in the filling infused with rum/bourbon/whiskey.

Another thing to add, this ps cafe (Martin road) outlet offers a selection of ice cream unlike the other outlets. Got the pistachio, which was a fab combination which up the nuttiness by another notch!

5 The Moments is one of my fav hang out after dinner if I am in the area. Not only does it have a wide offering of deserts including super crispy waffles, molten lava cakes, layered cakes and of course their smooth, rich, velvety ice cream, it also has a very laid back and homey interiors. The best part of it all is that they close at 11pm. I‘ve been finding myself being back here pretty often of late :p

Ice cream: Blue pea infused French Lavender, Rum & Raisin

Premium ice cream +$2

The lavender ice cream had a subtle lavender flavor, not the kind that makes you feel like you’re stuffing up a bunch of lavenders. It makes a really delicious floral treat, perfect to be paired with something heavy or dense.

The Rum & Raisin is rather mild, not the kind that will turn a non-alcoholic lover off. Raisins are not soaked in rum either, at least not that I can detect any. But it is a good pairing with the lavender.

Love the density of the matcha molten lava cake. Oozy centre could have been more flowy though. Much better than the typical chocolate ones!

Be warned of how massive this dish is! I was warned by the waitress that ordering the crispy fried chicken [$11] would be wiser as it is a smaller serving. But there was something that caught my eye in the description for the karaage, which was - biggest baddest karaage in town! I had to find out 😅

Loved the taste of the crispy batter and the super tender and juicy chicken within. It was mainly a rolled up version of the thigh portion of the chicken. Kinda reminds me of roulade but no filling within. The skin goes very well with the dipping sauce and mayo, and of course sake! 😋
