If there's one thing that's been stuck on my mind for a good part of this CB period, it's the Houjicha Burnt Cheesecake ($8.50) from The Kins’. 🤤⁠

Honestly, it's been months since I had this - I just never got around to posting it at that time. All I know is that this has etched itself in my mind. I've never been a fan of cheesecake really, but The Kins' burnt cheesecakes (both the original and this) converted me just like THAT. ⁠

Houjicha has a more roasted, earthy, faint coffee-like flavour to it, so imagine combining it with the tartness, the creaminess? On paper, it sounds amazing. In practice, it's mind-blowingly good. 🤯 They are located really far away from where I live, but it is definitely worth the travel. ⁠

Once CB is over, I'm going back for more, and no one’s gonna stop me! ✊🏽(8.3/10)

I don't know how else to describe having the Honey Toast with Poached Oranges & Madagascan Vanilla Bean Gelato besides saying that it felt…nice? This dish felt like a nod all the things that brought us warmth vis-a-vis our childhood days. 💭⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The poached oranges pieces that I got were subdued in tartness. Yet, they were plump enough to unleash a refreshing burst of it which would cut the overall sweetness of the dish. 🤤⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The honey-drizzled toast itself - this one felt like the big brother or big sister of the festive treat that is honey-coated cornflakes. Like the elder sibling that would pave the way for its younger, and equally promising ones. In short, it was a comforting dessert.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It may seem like I'm talking out of my a** lah, but take it or leave it - I experience my food on a more visceral level. (7.4/10) 🤷🏽‍♂️⁠

I’d always seen this place when walking around at Suntec City, but I’d never gone the extra step of trying it. 🙇🏽‍♂️ But yesterday, I decided to get something to quench my thirst cause I had spent the entire afternoon at Superpark.

And I gotta say, this was pretty good! Refreshing undoubtedly, it was imbued with familiar sweetness from some drinks that their demographics grew up drinking, I’m sure. 😍 Though it did get cloying towards the end thanks to the peach bits - it may very well have been because I didn’t throughly mix it up. 😅

I believe this is a seasonal item, so just bear that in mind in case you’re thinking of going down sometime to give it a shot! 😗

This was taken on the first time I paid Matchaya a visit after what feels like ages. They rose to the occasion by having Rose as part of their seasonal specialty. 🌹

I’ll be fully transparent. The yuzu jam embedded in the layers - I personally found its bright, citrusy flavour to be too different and thereby conflicting with the overall endearing sweetness of the rose-matcha combo. I did personally let them know my feedback as well!

Still, given what it’s worth, it’s definitely a nice, sweet creation to enjoy in time for Valentine’s Day, the season of love! 😍❤️

This comes with their signature mochi donut and this time, instead of underpinning a chunky, helix tower of softserve, you get a scoop of gelato which comes in a choice of 3 flavours — Madagascan Vanilla, Valrhona Chocolate and Earl Grey, interspersed with some fresh mint leaves. 😯

And surrounding the perimeter are some toasted almonds, peanut butter granola and caramel-apple sauce.

Perhaps it’s just my nostalgia speaking, but something about this combo just doesn’t hit like it used to? I can’t quite put a finger on why either. Their new brand just seems more serious and mature and that influences the way I should approach their dishes.

I could very well be overthinking it too. It’s not bad at all, really - perhaps I just need to give them a couple more shots! 🥴

Such a soothing shade of blue. 💙___💙 This was an exceptionally creamy gelato - in fact, I could tell it was going to take on this texture when I saw the service crew scooping out from the tub. I suppose that is a weird deduction to make, but I wasn’t wrong so I’m good with that! 🤣

Not really keen on this honestly. The bitter, floral, umami matcha taste was way too mild for my liking, which made it seem like another Milo drink. 😭 I’ll definitely stick to my usual Hot Coconut Chocolate drink. 🥴

[Available on Burpple Beyond] This flavour was stunning - there was nothing grand about this, but it’s ability to be so flavourful yet so neutral in taste, that’s giving the other ice cream flavour a saffron for their money.

This place made for a great Sunday getaway from the weekday work stresses. Coupled with a favourite book, ooooof that’s my ideal way to recharge! 🥰 (7.9/10)

Had this when I was exploring new places during lunchtime at work and ended up walking around Aperia Mall. 🤩

- It’s ordinary in taste personally, and barely passable based on the opinions of some bubble tea connoisseurs I personally know
- The wintermelon taste is a little sharp and artificial, but I suppose the dairy aspect of the milk tea helps to somewhat neuter it
- You can’t choose the sweetness level for this one
- They have a rewards program using a physical card, so if you work around the area and often need your fix of bubble teas, HELLO BENEFITS! 🥳

To be honest, I was searching for salad bars, but I’m quite the sucker for uncommon flavours of drinks. 😅 This wasn’t that bad…perhaps something that’s gratifying enough to get by until the next cup of [insert popular chains here] if you’re a casual bubble tea drinker like myself hahaha.

[Available on Burpple Beyond] My first acai bowl had me thinking to myself: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Why the hell have I been sleeping on this?!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This superfood squad from The Açaí Beach Club felt like the midway between a guiltless and a cheat day meal – the burst of fructose from the fresh cut fruits and the ice-cold purple gold açai honestly had my mind in a teeter-totter, I swear. But alas, the ending impression I had - this was a refreshing, guiltless alternative to the arsenal of conventional dessert items. My friends and I agreed that we were converts after this. 👏🏽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A tip though - you might want to leave a bigger stomach space for this because it is more filling than you’d expect. In fact, you could consider trading a carbohydrate-laden lunch for this, and there’s a good chance you won’t be mad. 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is also available on Burpple Beyond, so it was all the more a bang for the buck – from $11.90 per bowl to $5.95 for two bowls, assuming I did the math right. Hahaha. 🧐 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, the cleansing power that this had - WHEEEWWWWW. We shan’t delve into the details, but I think you can catch my drift. (7.8/10) 😶

The great thing about the Jewel Changi Airport outlet of L’eclair is that everything is alcohol-free and uses fish gelatin, making it accessible to Muslim patrons.

I hadn’t seen this one before though, which compelled me to get these as part of a box of 4 ($32). And the flavour of this…pretty darn amazing. The umami and astringency is beautifully balanced here - nothing too strong unlike specialty green tea houses that do matcha desserts.

While the thought of it being too sweet didn’t cross my mind, I have a hunch some matcha maestros may find it that way. Personally, I liked that the sweetness added a element of brightness to the taste! After all, aren’t desserts typically known for being sweet? 😛(8.8/10)

Had this back during the Labour Day weekend. I decided to take my mind off things with a ME! time at Percolate, where I had their Pulut Hitam cake.

I thought was pretty ordinary in taste, but I’m kind of sucker for fusion cakes. It could use a little more of that pulut hitam goodness, that’s for sure. 🖤 But I paired it with a cup of their Hot Coconut Chocolate, and it made for the perfect cure to the Sunday blues. 😘 (7/10)
