Available while stock lasts till 16 September, the series of summer-inspired creations consists of 4 limited edition Magnums ($12 each) in the hottest pastel shades.

Each featuring the classic vanilla core, the pre-designed ice cream masterpieces, exclusive to ION Orchard’s Magnum Pleasure Store, are dipped in a thick coat of colored chocolate with cute names to match. In a cheery bright orange, the Desert Heat Magnum was my favourite with crushed pistachios, dark chocolate drizzles and sugar succulents. For something soft and femininity, the Blooming Bouquet Magnum came with adorable sugar flowers, rose petals, dried raspberries, and white chocolate drizzles. And emanating a fun tropical vibe, the Ocean Tropics Magnum is topped with sugar shells, sugar pearls, white chocolate drizzles, and a pinch of sea salt.

Thus, with an embellished Magnum in hand, pleasure seekers will also get a chance to capture the perfect Insta-worthy shot with the themed props at the DIY photo booth but snap fast before the edible works of art melt!

Hence, having the mixed, you can get a mash up of the lighter and more floral profile of the Milk Green Tea with the robust Original Thai Tea. Though icy in texture, the swirls do pack the distinct and exceedingly prominent tea flavour as well. And the best part is that the icy treat is intense yet not overly sweet.

Available every Friday and Saturday from 11pm to 2.30am, night owls will not go to bed hungry as the focused menu will see a couple of their all-day favourites (like their Burnt Chilli Chicken and addictive Smashed Baby Potatoes) and new offerings served in the similar style of sharing plates to go along with their Shiny Rice.

Loving the selection, many of the items pays tribute to hearty and familiar Taiwanese street food yet each made with their own twist. So an instant hit, my pick of the night was their Oyster Omelette | Lard ($10). With none of the usual grease and starch; it wasn’t overly fried and didn’t have that hated gummy consistency. For fried goodness, have a go at their Golden Frog Legs | Haus Chilli Mayo ($10) and Dough Fritters | Minced Pork | Haus Saus ($5) which would also make perfect bar bites. For something saucy, I would recommend the well-executed Braised Duck | Taw Kwa | Egg ($10). But the true MVP was their Sweet Potato Congee ($3). Simple yet tasteful, the warm bowl was all smooth and fragrant with the addition of dashi stock - just great with everything. Hence, drawing comfort from all the dishes and the unpretentious ambience, do swing by for an affordable and satisfying meal!

Thank you The Salted Plum for having us and Burpple for organizing the eatup!

Nuts for Bakerzin's Pistachio Madness ($8) - a rich pistachio mousse cake with a wafer-like crust adorned with a creamy quenelle of handmade pistachio ice cream, dollops of chocolate cream and surprise layer of tangy raspberry coulis.

Reviving my jaded palate for all things truffle, I finally got down to trying Konjiki Hototogisu and their Shoyu Hamaguri Soup Signature ($14.90 without egg, $16.90 with egg) may be the best one yet. A lip-smacking blend of Hamaguri clams, pork bone, and Japanese dashi; the already umami stock gets a boost from the garnish of Tartufata (black truffle paste), Porcini Oil and Porcini flakes - making up their acclaimed Triple Soup. Lighter and more delicate in taste than expected, be sure to give the complex Shoyu-based broth a good mix after the initial sips to get that prefect balance of earthy, savoury and sweet too. Very drinkable indeed; the alluring waft of truffle was also subtle without overwhelming the other ingredients but transforming and adding a nice depth to the bowl. And soaking up the full-bodied yet clear taste of the soup, the specially imported whole-grain noodles were a great match-up and cooked to al dente perfection. What’s more, between the satisfying slurps of ramen, you can’t forget their signature Sous-Vide Cha Shu and Thick Belly Cha Shu. Tender and well-seasoned, their thin pork slices were thankfully not too salty and just enough to bring out the flavours of the slightly sweetish marinate.

There's no better way to chase those nasty Monday blues away than with a solid stack of squared waffles and a scoop of Creamier’s handcrafted Earl Grey Lavender ice cream - all creamy and flowery with the distinct flavour of the classic tea melded together with light refreshing hints of lavender. And sweetening the package is the awesome one-for-one deal, thanks to Burpple Beyond!!!

The fact that it lacks the familiar yet overwhelming taste of liqueur is what I love most about iO Italian Osteria’s Pistachio Tiramisu ($14). Dusted with pistachio atop, the layer of mascarpone was surprisingly fluffy and light. The coffee soaked ladyfingers too, held the same textural experience with the added punch of bittersweetness in each delicious forkful. Though the nutty flavour of pistachio was not pronounced, it worked really well as a delicate “pick me up” - moist, not too sweet and simply melt-in-your-mouth.

Scoring great bargains with the newly-launched Burpple Function, #BurppleBeyond, the premium membership programme currently has over 120 dining places to choose from. So for steak night, why not indulge in a special 5-course set menu at one of the partner restaurants, Fat Belly!

A focused dinner menu which would have otherwise set you back at $70++ per pax, can be enjoyed with an awesome 1-for-1 deal. Think balanced Duck Fennel Salad with Mango Balsamic Reduction to start, followed by aromatic Truffled Mushrooms with al dente Pearl Barley Risotto. Then right before the entrée, a refreshing quenelle of their house made Blood Orange Sorbet to cleanse the palate.

But of course, the star course was none other than the Mayura Signature Marble score 9+ Wagyu Tri-tip. Sous vide and grilled over charcoal, the result was a slightly smokey and succulent slab. Not overly fatty or lean. The beautiful cut also had the perfect bite as the natural flavours of the meat were retained and were able to burst through the delicate charred exterior (though it may look a tad dry). Couple all that with a bed of Purple Potato Puree, crunchy Roasted Almond Kale and savoury Bordelaise Sauce; and you got yourself a satisfying dish.

After which in the lineup, we had Sugarhaus Sticky Date Pudding. All warm, sweet, soft and moist. Though not exceptional, the steamed pudding texture just hits the spot especially with the pairing of a simple cool vanilla ice cream.

Escaping the cold rainy afternoon with a cuppa Bolivia Single Origin Chocolate ($6) the other day at The Glasshouse; The not-so-secret hideout is still one of my favourite place to grab a hot cocoa when I am in the area. And feeling peckish, I got myself a Carrot Cake as recommended by the staff.

But not a fan of cream cheese, I usually avoid carrot cakes so my first forkful sealed the deal for me. Topped with light clouds of cream cheese instead of the familiar thick creamy frosting, the cake wasn’t tooheavy nor sweet. Moist and soft, it was also studded with nuts and chock-full of ingredients. Mmmmm, and the best part is the hints of spiced flavour and myriad of textures within.

Apart from their well-portioned tapas, Scissors Paper Stove's generous mains would certainly make your mouth water. Stealing the spot light, the unanimous favourite at our table was the lavish Cartafata ($28) one of their signature dishes that features an entire sea bass and mixed seafood stewed in a sealed bag.

Locking in all the goodness, the flavours were spot-on with the use of herbs and uber-fresh produce. The unique citrusy accent of lemongrass also spicing up the natural sweetness of the fish and the tanginess of the tomato-based sauce. Do, however, expect a 25 to 35 minutes wait upon order. Yet well worth it, don't forget the Thai-styled Yellow Fried Rice served on the side; making it a very hearty meal as well as a superb item to share with 2 to 3 friends.

Quality pastries are my weakness, and I certainly wouldn't mind spending a couple more dollars on some beautiful and yumm-meh bakes! Thus fulfilling both requirements, the offerings at Tarte by Cheryl Koh are simply great for any occasion and act as instant mood boosters for me.

Each priced at $10 (small), there is a tart for every palate. For something tangy, the crowd-pleasing Lemon Meringue Tart is a go-to for an after meal treat with its soft meringue crown and vibrant fresh lemon curd. Or pick up something more localized with their Pandan Coconut Tart loaded with smooth pandan curd on a fragrant toasted coconut frangipane. The bits of coconuts atop adding a nice textural touch too~

However, the elements in the nutty Hazelnut Tart and classic Cheese Tart proved to be never failing. Think crunchy Piedmont Hazelnuts stacked on a base of slightly sticky-sweet caramel and milk chocolate. So good! Creamy yet balanced, also look no further than their rendition of the humble Cheese Tart. A harmonious blend of Mascarpone and Cream Cheese, the filling reminded me of a light Japanese cheese cake with flavours leaning towards the sweet.

Do I eat too much dessert?! I don't think so~ IG: @vanessa_kou | Tumblr: dessert-foodi-li-cious
