Launched 3 weeks ago, this double chocolate brownie is made using 2 kinds of chocolate: 65% Inaya Dark chocolate 41% Alunga Milk chocolate, topped with caramelised cooca nibs and served warm in a pot. The portion served is indeed huge, requiring at least 2 pax or more to indulge in, unless you have a huge fetish for chocolates. As I was dining alone, I must admit that I got really taken aback when it was served to me, as I was wondering how I would be able to manage it all on my own, despite having a sweet tooth. True enough, I was on the verge of giving up before half of it. Not that it wasn’t nice or so, the decadent and luscious chocolate cake was a pleasant indulgence and satisfaction to the palate only for the first few bites as it got rather overwhelming and saccharine after awhile. Fortunately the scoop of uji matcha ice cream which I had added on managed to alleviate the situation a little, with a subtle, fragrant earthy note. Made using matcha sourced from @matchayasg, the ice cream had a distinct earthy note but unfortunately lacking a lingering bitter undertone which I would have adored, as a hardcore matchaholic. The texture was great though; a smooth, creamy and melt-in-the mouth kind. On the other hand, the brownie came with a crisp surface layer with caramelised cocoa nibs that added a pleasant crunch factor. On the downside, the texture was a little dry and crumbly at some regions and it would have been better if it was more fudgy and moist instead .

With the ongoing 1-for-1 promotion (till end March), I managed to enjoy this 2 cups of delight at just $4.80! ✌🏻Promotion applies to the regular cup size only, with any flavour of your choice. Having tried their signature popcorn softserve back then when they were at Bugis junction, I decided to give these non popcorn flavours a try. Among the 2, I personally prefer the peanut butter pretzel which comes with pretzels (duh!) and peanut butter sauce. The aromatic nutty flavour with a subtle pleasant lingering saltiness served as a great counterbalance to the otherwise overwheming, luscious creamy milk softserve. The only downside was that it could be thicker and more viscous, as most of it sank to the bottom of the cup and hence not evenly spread out. The pretzels also provided a pleasant crunch factor and I wished there were more of it! On the other hand, the green tea mountain paled in comparison,with a barely distinguishable matcha flavour. The green tea sauce was milky, saccharine with a vague matcha flavour and so watery that they had sank to the bottom of the cup, hence not visible here. The green tea crumbles only served as a significant contributor to the texture, a pleasant crisp factor that had barely any matcha flavour as well. Overall, the milk softserve can be a tad overwhelming and heavy to the palate, hence do grab along some friends to share the indulgence with you unless you have a really sweet tooth like me! //

Shoutout to the awesome service at the Jcube outlet, where the staff was really apologetic about the initial presentation of a lopsided swirl and immediately made a new serving for me when she saw me taking photos of it. 🙆🏻‍♀️💖 #bestserviceever

Exclusively for the month of March, this Sakura berry mille crepe comes with a top layer of Sakura white chocolate ganache, layered with strawberry infused pastry cream within each paper thin-like crepe layer, topped with dehydrated strawberries. Was initially skeptical about this floral cake as I was afraid it would taste artificially sweet or just a normal fruity strawberry flavour, but my first bite of it proved me all wrong. The tangy berry flavour and fruity sweetness of strawberry is perfumed with a lingering floral aroma that makes this an enjoyable and pleasant delight ; one that wasn’t too overwhelming and I could easily polish this off all by myself for an afternoon tea snack. The delicate layers of mille crepe were painstakingly stacked and coated with substantial amount of smooth and light strawberry cream, whereas the top layer of Sakura white chocolate ganache enhanced the whole experience with its subtle pleasant floral fragrance. On a side note, one thing I m always curious about: are mille crepes meant to be eaten layer by layer, or just shove the whole stack into your mouth?🙊

The toast were crisp on the edges, with a soft and fluffy interior that could have been better if it was less buttery and salty. Perhaps it’s salted butter that was used that resulted in a lingering saltiness which I didn’t quite fancy. The Thai milk tea sauce was fortunately, enjoyable without being too sweet. On the other hand, the Thai milk tea ice cream had a subtle lingering aroma that’s a little icy in texture, and was surprisingly not too sweet as well! ✨ A hidden gem in the west estate that serves up pocket friendly shibuya toasts with great service rendered. Personally prefer the drink I had over this toast, which would be featured in my next post 😉 .

Adorned with a chocolate flavoured tart shell, the interior of chocolate cream cheese was smooth, creamy, luscious with a subtle lingering bittersweet cocoa flavour that was fortunately not too sweet nor milky which I was afraid of (and kind of expecting it to be). The tart shell was firm and crisp as well! 💕 Having tried both versions at room temperature and hot, I personally prefer the latter where the bittersweet profile of the chocolate was more distinct. .

✨💛 So glad this flavour won over orange (even though CNY is approaching 😅) since I wasn’t a fan of the latter and yuzu had always been my favourite citrus fruit! Served with yuzu reduction sauce drizzled atop, admist the creamy, milky softserve came a tangy, citrusy flavour that was distinct, lingering and a refreshing one to the palate. The yuzu reduction sauce added a pleasant tinge of subtle sweetness to the softserve as well, with a thick, purée-like texture. On a side note, certainly looking forward to the launch of a seasonal yuzu parfait which supposed to be launched today but due to some issues, was delayed😥. But that’s okay, as good thing are worth waiting for 😌.

Wear black and get 50 cents off the bamboo charcoal softserve that’s available at Isetan’s ongoing Miyazaki fair, till 25 January! Shown in frame is the small serving, with your choice of cup/cone. Texture wise, the bamboo charcoal softserve was soft, smooth and creamy with a melt-in-the mouth texture. Be sure to consume it fast as otherwise it might turn into a messy dripping pool (swipe to view 🙈). Enhanced with the addition of charcoal that’s present as tiny, grainy bits embedded within the smooth and creamy black softserve, the fragrant and slightly milky vanilla-alike flavour was a satisfaction to the palate, not too sweet that I could easily consume a large portion on my own. Did you know? Bamboo charcoal is said to reduce toxins and detoxify the body, hence a simple indulgence like this might turn out to be a blessing in disguise! 🖤 [PS: Many thanks to the friendly and kind staff for offering me the stand as a prop for my phototaking] .

A pretty new softserve joint that’s situated a stone’s throw away from its sister-alike @overrun.sg , with a greater offering in flavours and sizes! Had initially wanted to try the Nutella brownie cheesecake flavour but unfortunately, it was not available. Nevertheless, this top selling flavour Ondeh Ondeh left me with no regrets! ✨ A gula melaka softserve that comes with Pandan sauce, dessicated coconut and shredded coconut flakes, like a deconstructed ondeh ondeh- the Peranakan kueh that we are all familiar with. The softserve is smooth and slightly creamy but melts rather fast - pictures must be quick! 😉 Not too sweet regular cup was just nice for one simple indulgence 💖. The coconut flakes added a grainy, fibrous texture to the soft cold treat, enhanced with the fragrance of Pandan sauce. //
Was lucky enough to be the last customer when I went at around 6.30pm. Be prepared for long queue on weekends hence do come early to avoid disappointment 😅 .

This was actually my virgin try on @yolesingapore , with the descendent of @llaollaosg 👋. Apart from the original flavour, there’s a new weekly flavour at Yole and for this week, it’s Blueberry. Can’t decide on which flavour to get? You can opt for the twist (dual flavours) which was what I did for the best of both worlds! ✨ Coupled with my all time favourite luscious cookie sauce, strawberries and chocolate biscuits for the crunch, the froyo is smooth, creamy and tangy with a fruity sweetness of blueberries. The original didn’t really had much significant difference to its ancestor llaollao IMO. What really made a difference was the addition of new variety of crunches in Yole and sauces. (PS: the last day to try blueberry flavour would be on 21st jan, Sunday before the launch of another new weekly flavour.) .

🍇💜 Apart from the seasonal softserve, @matchayasg has also come up with uniquely interesting beverages derived from kyoho grapes - swipe to the end to view the offerings! .
Do note that the kyoho grape softserve is not part of this beverage but an add-on upon special request. Thanks @matchayasg for the special customization and it was amazing how the softserve managed to stay afloat on the non ice blended beverage! ✨ It was initially served in a perfect, straight up form but unfortunately, due to my careless hands, part of it slanted to one side 😢. The triple layer beverage comprised of a base layer of kyoho grape, topped with fresh milk and lastly a freshly whisked uji matcha shot.However this visual effects is only a temporary feast for the sight as you would have to mix everything together to drink it. The end result was one that was refreshing, with a pleasant fruity sweetness and a subtle earthy note of matcha. The matcha flavour is distinct albeit mild, with the bulk of flavours coming from the milky, fruity sweetness of kyoho grapes mixed in with fresh milk that somehow reminded me of a less sweet version of ribena. On the other hand, the kyoho grape softserve could be a tad sweet for those without a sweet tooth and hence I was recommended to consume it separately from the beverage to prevent a conflict with the uji matcha shot. Despite the seemingly exotic combination, the end result surprisingly turned out to be one that was refreshing, enjoyable, though not an ideal choice for the current rainy season 😅 . .

💜 Adorned with an exterior polished, Snow White cream coating, the cake came in a pretty huge and thick slice, with purple sweet potato mousse sandwiched between two alternating layers of purple sweet potato chiffon-like sponge. The purple sweet potato mousse was my favourite element here, with a creamy texture and a luscious, pleasant tinge of characteristic sweetness. The sponge was soft and fluffy, not too dry and well balanced with a thin layer of smooth, cotton-like cream. Simply can’t get over this cake and I even polished off the entire portion all by myself despite having a heavy lunch prior to this 🙈.
.
The green tea latte, on the other hand, was decent but too milky for my liking. Thankfully it wasn’t too sweet though the matcha flavour could have been more distinct. However, I do adore the fact that a thick matcha shot was served at the side for one to self adjust the intensity. Personally I would very much prefer to consume the shot in silo instead as it didn’t have much significant effect when incorporated into the warm matcha latte.
Overall, it was a pleasant dining experience with a welcoming, vibrant ambience that’s great to chill and hang out with your friends or for some me-time. There’s also 2 levels available for dining, both decked with lush greenery and an eco-friendly theme. Swipe to view the interior! 🌿🍀🌱 Hopefully there would be an outlet here in the near future? 👉🏻👈🏻

Mine came with almond crunch instead of salted cornflakes which was a fortunate incident for me as I m huge fan of the almond crunch toppings here 💖. The toasted popcorn, however, paled in comparison apart from contributing to an additional crisp factor. The cornsilk green tea softserve isn’t the matcha kind of green tea as expected, with a light, mild note which I wasn’t a fan of. Suited for those with a lighter palate and if you are in need of a refreshing cold treat for the humid weather, I strongly recommend getting the bottles beverage instead (which is cheaper with a more distinct flavour). Paling much in comparison to the previous black beauty tea, I do hope that the next rotational flavour: osmanthus oolong would live up to expectations 🙏🏻 .
