While the more child-friendly Magical Bubble Tea (SGD $6.90) is available on the menu, this distinctly more adult version is a special off-menu creation, made upon request.
.
It features a blend of creamy Hokkaido Utterly Divine milk, flavoured with rich gula melaka / palm sugar, a decadent splash of white rum, and completed with chewy soft tapioca boba pearls.
.
With an earthy milky sweet floral boozy flavour, this beverage was so yummy.

Cut into this and watch as the molten chocolate slowly oozes out of the chocolate cake.

The highlight of our meal and a dish I still crave for. This was beyond good and utterly memorable.

It features a heavenly combination of silky angel hair / capellini pasta noodles, plump Hokkaido scallops, crunchy seaweed bits, premium white truffle oil, and freshly-caught slippery Hokkaido bafun uni / sea urchin, served chilled.
.
Each bite was a delightful burst of earthy sweet savoury briny flavour, embracing your palate with its divine notes.
.
So good we ordered a second round.

This surely puts other versions elsewhere to shame.

This features large sun seeker oysters, lovingly sourced from the pristine waters of British Columbia, Canada.
.
Perfectly balanced with slippery succulent juicy texture and bright sweet briny salty flavour, these oysters are an unforgettable delight.
.
We had 2 that weren't as fresh, and when we shared the feedback, the kitchen immediately served us another 3 oysters (yes, 1 additional oyster), excellent service recovery.

This has a lovely warm or chilled blend of milky almond cream and thick black sesame cream.
.
The combination results in a beautiful nutty sweet flavour that is distinct in its duality, embracing the balance as the dessert envelops the palate.

The best thing about this is the rich curry soup / broth, robust with milky savoury spicy flavour. More chili spice than curry spice here, sharp with a fiery kick that lingers.
.
The silky thin wheat vermicelli noodles are so slurpable, the spongy egg omelette strips have eggy sweet flavour, while the blanched kai-lan is crunchy with vegetal sweet notes.
.
However, I wish they'd served the tender pork chop and crisp wanton dumplings separately, because while both have savoury sweet flavour that is tasty, their fried batter quickly becomes mushy.

Warm with a crisp exterior that crunches lightly before you get the fluffy soft interior, the toast bread is coated with egg, white sugar crystals, and drizzled with maple syrup.
.
Slather some butter across. Bite in, and you get a bold eggy savoury sweet floral buttery flavour, so enticing.
