The menu, which varies from the original branch, offers delicious and fascinating items such as this mille feuille sushi, which is probably inspired by sushi's travels to France since entering a mid-life crisis. Photo by Burppler Shawn Loh #Burpple

One look and it seemed like they are ice-cream, but this is apparently a shaved ice dessert that originated from Shilin Taiwan. Left is the Boba Milk & Egg; pearls added to the Milk & Egg flavour which was creamy and eggy with milk tea flavours. Middle is the Peanut & Kidney Bean which sees a shaved ice with rich nutty flavours filled with Kidney beans to bite. Last was the Pineapple with Milk & Egg; the pineapple was tart and sweet with chunks of pineapple to bite. The shaved ice were really smooth and ice-cream like, which is pretty different from those we are familiar with.

There's no longer a need to endure leg-cramping flights to New York to get your hands on authentic NYC deli-style cuisine. You can now take a bite of the food that's synonymous with the Big Apple right here in Orchard Road. "Sasha & Sons", located on level three of the Mandarin Gallery, is where you can dig into platters piled with a variety of smoked meats and smoked fish, plus all the necessary condiments.
At the recent Burpple Tastemakers' Eat-up, meat-loving me was more than happy to chomp on thick slices of Roast Beef, Smoked Pastrami and Corned Beef. I swear there's no protein with greater depth and complexity of flavour than smoked meats. After learning how the owners spent years creating and perfecting the recipe and curing process for their meats, I was even more appreciative of every bite. With the accompanying house pickles, coleslaw, sliced onions and sweet tomatoes slapped on, tastiness level went up another couple of notches.
Proving just as delectable was the fish platter that consisted of smoked salmon slices, plus dips of smoked salmon and smoked trout. The former dip was really smooth thanks to cream cheese being in its mix but I have to admit, I gravitated towards the latter. My fondness for raw onion's lively crunch and punch knows no bounds.
Contributing the carb factor was a mini mountain of toasted sesame seed bagels. Besides being irresistible to play with (Tastemakers, you know who you are!), these were well balanced in texture and not overly chewy.
