Since it's International Ice Cream day, I'll dedicate this post to the best ice cream I've had thus far -- Super loco done it again with this coconut paleta ($4) topped with shredded coconut meat, lime zest and caramel drizzle. The coconut cream and intense citrus notes from the lime zest blended so well together, and the slightly burnt caramel removed the aftertaste cream might have on my palate. Exquisito 🙌🏻👌🏻

Boyfriend will possibly kill me if he finds out I spent so much on a Salted Caramel Soufflé ($24) this was risen well, good tangy apple sorbet but was too eggy and waaaay too sweet (like eating a sweet, egg dish)

This was highly recommended by a friend when I said I was going to boCHINche for dinner, and I wasn't disappointed! Cracking into the caramelised sugar top, the dulce de leche custard base Creme Brûlée ($17) melts in your mouth leaving a creamy, sweet finish. Banana split flavoured ice cream was a bonus tho could do without. Calories don't count for dessert.

Back again to try the avocado soft serve w mochi base ($14) looooove the subtle avocado flavour in the creamy soft serve and the warm, sweet, chewy mochi bun. Not the most balanced combo but defo good for your soul! (Or tummy)

For good brunch at affordable prices in the heartland! Their Earl Grey Lavender ($7.90) was divine, really good earl grey flavor and touch of lavender in its chiffon layers. Not too rich or sweet, great for after brunch coffee.

Coconut Mousse ($14) was a soft coconut mousse w a tangy passion fruit and mango layered center, and the classic Mille Feuille ($12) was well executed w its thin layers of puff pastry and vanilla creme. Both lacked the taste/texture I've gotten from their lemon tarte, and rather disappointing coming from Waku Ghin

Sticky Date Pudding ($13) didn't quite hit the spot, albeit its softness and moist, the pudding lacked the flavor and fibrous texture of dates, and was too sweet to be paired w the pool of butterscotch sauce. Still, really good vanilla ice cream that made it better! On a mission to find the best date in sg, I mean, sticky date pudding

Just next to Exit C of Chinatown MRT, an Avocado Soft Serve ($2) is all you need on a hot day! Subtle avocado creamy flavor was good enough for me, could improve on a smoother texture but who am I kidding? No real complaints for this rare find, def coming back for more 😋 P/s: they have other flavors too, at really low prices!

Now this is what I call creative! Rubber Ducky ($12.90) came to us as a rubber duck having a bubble bath; rubber duck was an exotic/intense flavored sorbet (pineapple, apples, passion fruit), lemongrass(!) foam, hidden underneath was a bed of creme fraiche pudding (balanced out the acidity of the sorbet), chewy sago pearls (for texture) and mango puree. Def one of my fav desserts!

Half occupied on a late weekday afternoon, Non-Entrée (10 mins walk from Farrer Park MRT Exit B) serves only desserts/drinks on its menu. The Matcha Avalanche ($13.90) was too pretty to eat; warm matcha lava cake atop an almond nougatine, w a garden of roasted green tea ice cream on chocolate soil. Cutting the cake lets out a consistent, warm gooey matcha lava that half melts the ice cream, leaving you w messy matcha goodness in a cup. Eat it w bits of the almond nougatine and choco soil for better texture. Downside: too pricey/gimmicky for its mediocre taste.

Been a recurring customer of Le Cafe since I bought my first box of Bean Curd Tarts (8 for $10) about 2 years ago, and what I absolutely love about them (other than the tarts of course) is the consistency in their products. Bean curd is smooth and light, w subtle soya flavor (like classic tau huey) goes well w the buttery, fragrant tart base that crumbles and melts in your mouth w each bite. STEP ASIDE YOU LAVA CHEESE/SALTED EGG TARTS!!! Old is gold. Highly recommend this for gatherings/occasional treat for friends or family! P/s: do call in before making a trip down to make sure the tarts are still available!

What an intense Lemon Tart ($8) from Ghin's! Silky smooth curd + sponge that was extremely tangy and lemony (almost like eating a sweet lemon w zest) good balance when eaten w the thin tart base and torched meringue. Def going back for more 😋
