Singapore, a melting pot of culture, serves up a wide selection of cuisines to satisfy our taste buds. Never go hungry again.

Served in a jar, it is layered with ladyfinger biscuits, mascarpone cream cheese and bittersweet chocolate pieces with a pipette dropper sitting atop the mini mountain. With some research done online, I found out that it actually contains a mixture of coffee liqueur, rum and Marsala wine which you can squeeze out for an alcoholic kick in your tiramisu. It’s all these little touches where you get to “play” before eating makes it such an enjoyable experience.

As I have neither been to Sydney nor tried Aqua S previously, I do not have a clear comparison on the difference between the ones retailing here and the ones back in Australia. However, there was much to be desired after this visit.

I got my order of the Thai Milk Tea and Sea Salt Ice Cream in Black Waffle Cone ($6.40) pretty quickly as there was not much of a queue on a Saturday night. After the first few bites, I begin to wonder if this blue softserve is just an Instagram fad or is there something magical in it that I have not tasted? Everything just seemed rather average for me. If you disagree, I would love to hear from you what I have been missing out?

If you have not had it before, be prepared for bites of thick and crunchy peanut butter with mixed berry jam, sandwiched in a cornflake crusted milk and chocolate bread. Not the healthiest of sandwiches around, hell yeah you damn right, but I am willing to spend a little more time in the gym so that I can afford the calories for this. Also, first timers beware, this is not your so-called dessert bread so do share it with someone since sharing is caring. You know you are getting a damn good sandwich when you start to hear oooohs and ahhhhs from each bite.

And that was what happened yesterday morning and the Kanelbullar ($3.50) was the perfect energy booster. Essentially, a Kanelbullar is a danish cinnamon bun commonly eaten as a breakfast bread in Northern Europe. For fans of the roll, you will surely like this as the strong aromatic cinnamon spice will instantly hit you from the first bite. Wash that down with a cup of coffee and you are set to conquer the world.

Some of the sharing plates that you can expect include the Tomato Caprese with house-cured salmon, Mentaiko Toast, Ginger Scallion Clams and especially the Salted Egg Yolk Wings (pictured) which in my opinion was one of the highlights of the meal. Coated evenly with the sauce, there is no clogging salted egg yolk flavour that will leave you feeling surfeited. Instead, the flavours are well-balanced and has a good party of sweetness, savoriness and spiciness all in one bite. From the barbecue section, there’s the Kimchi Pancake that comes with a bean paste pork belly and fried egg, and Maple Sausages that’s reminiscent of a Swiss dish that’s served with rosti and mushroom ragout. To end the meal, you can opt for their Signature Berry Ball, a muffcake ball in a garden setting of berries, ice cream and edible flowers.

Unique flavours that you should try include the Green Tea Toasted Rice which is made using a concentrated tea powder from the brand, Leefe. This tea powder is made from a base of kabuse sencha and blended with roasted rice to create an aromatic umami flavour. Another flavour that is soon-to-be-released, which might be my favorite yet, is the refreshing Mint Chocolate, made with fresh mint leaves and semi-sweet chocolate bits. Each scoop of ice cream is at $4, with premium flavours costing an additional $0.70.

If you are, then like me, you will tend to gravitate towards ordering the same thing again and again. At Cake Spade, though they might have a selection of different cakes, the one that appeals to me most is still the Strawberry Tofu Cheesecake which never fails to make it to the table during each visit. The bottom layer starts off with a base of biscuit crumbs before a hardened cheesecake forms the middle. To top if all off, a strawberry jelly adds the finishing touch. It might seem weird at first like how can jelly be paired with cheesecake but food works wonders and true enough, every layer and texture complement with one another perfectly.

True to my habitual nature, the obvious ice cream flavours that I have set my eyes upon are the Thai Milk Tea and Earl Grey Lavender. The robust and strong milk tea aroma with the scented floral notes make it such a impeccable pairing to go with the waffles. What other flavours do you usually order when at Creamier?

Out of the new items, you can expect starters such as Maple Fried Chicken ($15), nicely marinated and deep fried fried chicken coated with a gooey coffee maple with pieces of Belgium waffles for a representation of chicken and waffles, and mains such as the Seafood Capellini ($24), served cold with an assorted of raw seafood on a truffle soy dressing, and the PH Big Breakfast ($25) with items such as bacon steak, maple sausage and cured salmon.

My all time favorite from this cafe however has definitely got to be the 黑 Rice ($24) that has a huge slab of flap steak with black rice and orange ebikko. Mix in the onsen egg with the rice to give it a little bit of the creaminess, take a piece of grilled steak, combine both together and you will get an umami burst of flavour.

And here I am, back at Geometry for their Signature Handcrafted Tart with Salted Caramel Floss. The Instagram factor will definitely be the floss but the real showstopper has got to be the buttery tart that’s so sinfully good when you eat it with the ice cream. It might sound like a simple combination like how difficult can “tart + ice cream” get, but this tart was so well executed that it stands above the other run-of-the-mill ones while the tower of pistachio and strawberry white peach cheesecake ice cream adds the finishing touch.

Not a big fan of their waffles though but the ice cream saved the day for its aroma and flavour, reminiscent of drinking the actual beverage itself. What’s more, I managed to get this waffles set at a 1 for 1 deal thanks to Burpple Beyond!

During this invited tasting, we got to try the other items in their menu and it is going to be a struggle next time to order either the Burrito Bowl or Quesadillas. The former is something that I am familiar with and I highly recommend you get with the Grilled Steak ($11.90), a marinated Aussie flank steak, fire grilled and then hand cut, or the Pan Seared Barramundi ($11.90) that has been seasoned in a garlic and lime sauce. The quesadillas are like an upgraded version of the tortilla wrap filled with cheese and then heated up which opened up a whole new flavour world to Mexican cuisine. In conclusion, when you are feeling for some Mexican street food, Guzman got you covered with their wide range of classics such as the burritos, nachos, enchiladas, fajitas and tacos.
