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!

This viral sweet treat has been popping up on my feed so often that I knew I had to get my hands on it.

The French American Bakery is located just a short walk away from my office & is my usual spot I go to for my mid day sweet snack of pastries, brownies or just to have a look at the gorgeous variety.

Their latest Toasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate ($8) has been the talk of the town for quite some time. Rich, thick, hot chocolate (that isn't too sweet) is topped with swirls of melted marshmallow & torched upon order. What you get is an aesthetic, crispy drink that's not only nice to look at, but tastes great too!

Indulge in a cup by yourself, or share it with someone, this is definitely something to try when you're in the Bugis area!

For drinks, a must-order would be a milkshake & we got the popular favourite, Chocolate Peanut Butter ($8.90). We watched the preparation process happen before us as we sat by the counter-2-3 scoops of chocolate ice cream, full cream milk, dollops of peanut butter. A swirl in the machine afterwards and a thick, cold, creamy milkshake was served to you over the counter, yum 🀀

They currently are only taking cash or paynow/PayLah, so please come prepared!

Pro-tip: to avoid the insane crowd & having to queue for >30 mins (we did that even after arriving at about 1.30pm), come visit right when they open at 11am. You'd thank me later πŸ˜‰

Recently visited Lumbre located at CHIJMES. This cosy little restaurant space has an open kitchen concept with little seating nooks all around. We had a table of 9, so we were seated right smack in the middle of the restaurant, which felt like a private meal for our table.

For desserts, we got the Caramelised French Toast which was the perfect eggy toast you'd want, paired with a side of crumble, Rum & Raisin ice cream & a tart coulis (didn't catch the fruit). Albeit simple, every component paired well with each other, making it a light sweet ending to the meal.

Newly opened Birds of Paradise (Beach) is conveniently located along Beach Road, a couple doors down from the new The Coconut Club flagship!

The minimalistic interior is a gorgeous sight paired with the aromatics of freshly baked thyme cones as you enter the store.

Serving up 18 unique flavours consisting of favourites like the White Chrysanthemum, Strawberry Basil to simple flavours like their Mango Sorbet and Pistachio, I went for their Lychee Raspberry in a thyme cone!

The sweetness of the lychee, layered with the tartness of the raspberry was comforting and de lightly amidst the sweltering heat. Adding on flavour & crunch is their thyme cone which is not to be missed!

Located with Jalan Besar Community Centre, PACTO by Parchmen serves up an array of pastries, cakes, Asian teas, coffee & ice cream!

Perfect for a hot day hideaway & just a stone throw away from Lavender MRT station, indulge in unique tea flavours such as Tie Guan Yin ι“θ§‚ιŸ³ (which were sourced directly from the mountains in China), to familiar flavours such as Dou Jiang You Tiao 豆框油村 aka Soya Milk with Dough Fritters. These flavours were done as a collab between popular ice cream spot, Tom's Palette & the team at Parchmen.

The former comes with a light tea flavour, and a bitter aftertaste, similar to the actual tea itself. With such light flavours, it can easily pair with any other flavour, or work as a palate cleanser after a meal; just like how you drink tea after a meal.

The latter is definitely a taste of nostalgia, with a slightly sweetened soya milk base, with crispy bites of actual dough fritters in it! Fret not, these fritters aren't oily, so they pair really well with the cold creamy soya milk ice cream.

Pair your ice cream with their curated menu of Asian teas ranging from Matcha, to Pu Er; or have a go at their coffee which is a blend of Ethiopian & Myanmar beans-fruity yet chocolatey.

This signature dessert is a must-order whenever you visit The Coconut Club!

Perfectly shaved cold ice, topped with their signature coconut milk, gula melaka & mung bean jelly & azuki beans--this combination is the sweet ending to your meal that you need!

Enjoying this cold dessert in the insane Singapore heat in their spanking new outlet, The Coconut Club (Beach Road) has opened its latest flagship having moved from Ann Siang Hill.

Expect your favourites such as the above Chendol, but also keep your eyes peeled for all-day dining options!

Was pushed this bundle pack via Instagram & I got sold immediately πŸ™ƒ this limited release from Mr Bucket Chocolaterie & Tigerlily Patisserie was enticing enough that I checked out within 5 mins.

This $33 bundle consists of these intricately designed & well-balanced bon bons, with 2 of them being collaboration flavours from Tigerlily. The rest were some of the favourite flavours which I didn't bear to eat initially as they all looked so good, but lemme tell you, they taste as good, or better than it looks.

Looking forward to more of such collabs, but in the meantime, lemme finish up the rest of the bon bons πŸ‘…

Located within Alexandra Village Food Centre, SweetT.Rex serves up affordable made to order soufflΓ© pancakes!

At $5, you get 2 fluffy pancakes served with a choice of syrup on the side. You can choose from either maple syrup, chocolate, strawberry or caramel.

We went for the simplest, which was maple to enjoy the pancakes on its own & with the added sweetness of the syrup.

The pancakes were wobbly, soft & extremely fluffy. It felt like we were eating sweet dollops of clouds with every mouthful.

Do note that there's a waiting time of about 15 minutes after you order! So while you're waiting, you could also go for their puddings, or basque burnt cheesecakes which looks equally delightful!

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 πŸ”₯

Donut question my love for these lovely baked buns 🍩

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 😌

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 🍨

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 😌

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.
