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)

Veganburg Singapore recently hopped onboard the Impossible train! For any burger that you order, you can opt to swap out the regular patty with Impossible for an extra $5. 🙃💸

For those wondering, the Impossible patty is another meat analogue product made with heme. It hails all the way from California, and it made its way to our shores back in March. It seems unthinkable, but there is absolutely no meat in this, which may be disconcerting to those who were born not eating the stuff and have never known how it tastes like. 🤔

Rest assured though - while it does a solid job at mimicking a beef patty, there are still notable differences in the texture as well as the taste. The one thing that definitely separates it from a beef patty is the absence of the beefy-umami flavour. The fact that it barely misses the mark of perfect imitation though, is undeniably a letdown and may make meat-lovers frown. 😪

In addition, the Smoky BBQ burger (with Impossible Patty) had an overwhelming amount of vegannise…what’s up with that?! More BBQ sauce would’ve been nicer, period. 😩 (6.9/10)

My first brown sugar milk experience at another place a little while ago wasn’t the best, I have to admit. The milk was rather sour and the combination with the earthy, caramel-like taste of the brown sugar was awful.

Thankfully, this brown sugar milk drink from Tiger Sugar helped to change my perception of the stuff. It had a less endearing sweetness compared to the regular black milk tea, but it was more honeyed with a hint of caramel. It was pretty delicious I must admit. Still though, the difference is not significant enough to convert me from a black milk tea squad to brown sugar milk team. 😅

[3/4] I marked this as one of my favourites as the Thai Milk Tea wasn’t heavy/concentrated in flavour. It was surprisingly balanced, which I think is a move to compensate for the doughnut’s sugary exterior. Thankfully, I followed my hunch of getting two of these in my box of 6! 😂

[2/4] This Nutella pun has been done to death, but I guess I can close one eye given the jolt of happiness you can get from one of these. The overflowing Nutella is truly just the tip of the iceberg. Break into one of these to liberate the decadence of the molten, lava-viscous chocolate-hazelnut ganache. 😍😭

[1/4] Four posts about doughnuts incoming! Before that, just wanted to say that I’m super stoked to be selected as a Burpple Tastemaker again. :’) I questioned my interest in writing about food many times in 2018, but I guess you go through peaks and troughs with your interests and that’s okay. 🙏🏽

So anyway, I made my way to Whampoa during my lunch break just to get doughnuts from here. They really make some of the best baked doughnuts I’ve had besides Kakuida.

These plump sugar-laced bombolinis are so soft, and are stuffed pretty generously (albeit not ala Shuu puffs) with filling corresponding to its flavour. It may not look like it from this picture, but truly, looks can be deceiving. Just one bite was enough to send me into a state of bliss, honestly. 😍🙏🏽
