For The Sweet Tooth (& Some Savoury)

For The Sweet Tooth (& Some Savoury)

Everyone loves to end their meals with desserts, so why not! It's the best thing to have at any point in time of the day!

What happens when you put soft serve & a shot of coffee together? Well, you get espresso (spro for short) soft serve.

New on the menu at PPP Coffee, the Spro Soft Serve ($6.50) packs your caffeine punch in a dessert form.

A swirl of soft serve is topped with an almond brittle and granola bits to give you that additional nutty crunch, which also pairs well with the espresso base (I'm guessing they used their Nuts & Bolts blend). What you get is a nutty harmony which is perfect for Singapore's weather which is constantly hot ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Donut question my love for these lovely baked buns ๐Ÿฉ

These stuffed brioche donuts from Nassim Hill Bakery comes with 2 simple flavours - chocolate or Kaya. The former fills the bins with luscious thick dark chocolate which isn't too sweet to the palate that even the older folks approved of it. The latter is filled with a coconut-y sweet pandan jam that reminds you of the good old days. Each bun has just the right amount of filling to dough ratio, allowing you to get a little of filling with every bite.

A box of 4 is affordably priced at $14, which means each pop is only at $3.50! Super duper worth it! They're available for delivery or self-pick up! What I did was pre-order it the day before, then pop by for a nice brunch before collecting the sweet treats ๐Ÿ˜Œ

With the immense heat, what's most needed is a nice cold dessert & with the recent news, the good ol' McFlurry was what I needed! The best part - it's @mcdsg's latest Lotus Biscoff McFlurry ๐Ÿจ

Mixed in with the vanilla soft serve are crushed lotus Biscoff biscuits, giving you that sweet crunch with every mouthful of creamy soft serve. I wished there was a lil' more biscoff but always happy to have this option cause it reminds me of the good times in Paris & enjoying the Speculoos McFlurry which is only available there ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Tucked along the strip at NEWest, Simple Cafe is a Taiwanese-inspired hole in the wall, serving up sweet desserts & coffee as the background plays mellow Mandopop hits.

Their donuts (choose between Vanilla or Strawberry Cream Cheese) goes at $4.50 a pop and comes powered with sugar, while filled with a generous heap of delicious flavoured cream.

We tried the latter, which comes with the saltiness & creaminess of the cream cheese, without losing the sweet & tanginess of strawberries, balancing out the flavours within the cream. As for the donut, it was fluffy & fried to perfection, making it so easy to finish up the entire piece without hesitation.

Another new kid of the block, Dawn's Gelateria & Cafe is located right in a quiet corner serving up homemade gelato made in-house daily!

Had a go at their Passionfruit Sorbet (freshly made today!) & the 59% Valrhona Dark Chocolate.

Love their take on the fruity sorbets as I manage to sneak a taste of the Yuzu Lemon Sorbet as well. The sour tang cuts through & makes it a great end-meal perk me up!

As for the dark chocolate, it's pretty good as a chocolate-based ice cream. I would prefer it to be darker & slightly more bitter, but still a good dark choc if you're afraid of the bitterness!

It's been awhile since I last cafe-hop, but finally visited this popular spot that I heard of.

Tried one of their signature desserts - Grape & Ricotta Matcha Brioche ($13). One might find the combination of fruit & cheese strange, but this surprisingly works pretty! The sweet-sour tang of the grapes, paired with the savoury ricotta works pretty well! To top it, a sprinkle of lavender bits perfumes the dish & your mouth. It surprisingly doesn't overpower the other flavours, but gives it a light gentle flavour boost. Probably the thing that sets it apart from other fruit-cheese combinations.

That aside, coffee is pretty decent as they take it from @commonmancoffee โ˜•๏ธ as their kitchen closes early on weekends, so it's a great tea time spot to be at!

Known for its Winnie The Pooh references, has a really bright & simple interior which feels really warm & welcoming. They also have a pretty interesting variety of flavours which includes Peach Basil (as seen), Honey Chrysanthemum & Cocoa Nibs as well as Ca Phe (Vietnamese coffee). Top up $1 for a Rosemary cone, which pairs perfectly with the flavours & perfumes the entire store with its scent.

The Peach Basil sorbet is light on the palate, with savoury bursts of flavour as you lick up the Basil bits. It's not too sweet as well which makes it really comforting.

If you're in the hood, do rmb to pop by! They also open till 12mn daily, so late night ice cream cravings will definitely be satisfied ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Recently visited & tried this new kid around the corner & boy am I'm glad we got a dope ice cream parlour nearby!!

@burntcones opened slightly over a month ago & is located right opposite @ollacoffee at Sunset Way! They're serving up waffles, waffle cones & gelato options that are pretty unique & can definitely fight the popular ones that are in the scene.

We tried the basics such as the hazelnut, and also unique ones such as the Kaya chendol! Hazelnut was 100% on point with its nuttiness & creaminess. The Kaya chendol was quite mind blowing as it had the essence of the milliners of a chendol, but had that sweetness of the Pandan jelly / Kaya flavour.

Best part, they open till midnight daily! So you can grab a scoop or two whenever you're craving for it!


Recently launched by PIES by Hattendo, you got your classic mix of Italian-Japanese flavours, just in time for the festive seasons - Pistachio & Hokkaido Soft Serve.

Pistachio imported directly from Italy & roasted in-house, it helped to create perfect blend between the pistachio & Hokkaido milk ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

The creaminess of the Hokkaido milk, paired with the toasty, crunchy pistachio bits made this the perfect seasonal dessert to end your meal with!

This is not your usual goreng pisang if you thought it was! While the main star is still the banana as the center of the dessert, the coating around it is actually Indonesian sweet potatoes!

What you get is a mochi-like texture with a slightly sweet banana center. This chewy little bar snack/dessert is quite addictive & enjoyable!

Haven't had this for awhile & when I ordered it, it tastes exactly how I remembered it!

The Malayan Council's Ondeh Ondeh Cake is perhaps the most on point and similar to actual Ondeh ondeh. Every mouthful is filled with coconut shavings, soft Pandan sponge and sweet, thick, with crunchy bits of gula Melaka.

The perfect sweet ending to a meal!


Made it back to my all time favourite ice cream parlour (also the nearest one to home + work) - Creamier!!!

Having ice cream on a weekday after lunch makes my very busy day a lot sweeter, especially with their Roasted Pistachio.

The saltiness of the pistachio used goes perfectly with the smooth creamy texture of the ice cream, making this scoop the best ever.
