I mean this with absolutely no tinge of malice, but I have to admit that this wasn’t any better than the cake that I tried. In fact, it was a far cry from it. The Belgian waffles were awfully dry, hard and felt - for a lack of better word - lifeless. 😕

Personally, the only save here was their Matcha N°1 gelato, which packed enough astringency and sweetness to pair smoothly with the waffles, albeit barely.

If they could find a way to incorporate freshly-made waffles, this would slap for sure! Otherwise, forgive me for saying this, but this felt like a highly uninspired dessert. 😩 Consider going for the other things on their menu, really. (4.8/10)

I would love to say that my socks were knocked off by this, but I’d be preaching a lie. Sure, the layer of azuki provides a sweetening contrast to the vegetal, bitter taste stemming from the matcha (which wasn’t that intense to begin with), but unfortunately, I couldn’t find a reason to be compelled with this. Really, I could try to sugarcoat it, but the fact of the matter is – it didn’t manage to make an impression on me. 🙁

If you haven’t tried this yet, I can tell you that you won’t be missing out on much except for the opportunity for an Instagram profile spice-up. Given it’s steep price point, you might want consider going for their other cakes. I saw Honey Earl Grey, Goma, Lemon Meringue among others, all of which piqued my interest. 😍 (6.8/10)

[Mystery Flavour Ended] The season of Melon as a mystery flavour has come to an end a few days ago, but here’s a picture to evidence the time I gave it a go! 🤩

One of their sweetest and most summery mystery flavours, which is a good thing because it works perfectly as a balm during the scorching days (aka everyday)! Also, this place seems to have revamped their menu a little bit to include more drinks - their Matcha Calpis Milk is pretty good actually. The combination of the umami of the matcha and tartness from the Calpis Milk is quite unimaginable on paper, but sensible and pleasant on the tastebuds. 😘

As you may have heard of the disappointing news, Artea’s much-raved about soufflé pancakes are departing from their menu come 20 January. 😣 By no fault of their own I believe – from what I understand, V*voc*ty’s management does not want to approve of them selling it. But based on their posts and replies to people, they do plan to bring it back at another place and time soon! That’s in the works! 🤩

Their pancakes were conspicuously jiggly. I’ve had some soufflé pancakes before, and they can’t compare to this one. 😧 This one was incredibly delicate in the centre - it’s how I imagine it’d feel like to make an incision on a cloud. I wish I was exaggerating. All the mango items imbued the dish with a tropical freshness, which is certainly a welcome addition and I think would hit home with us Southeast Asians. Besides mangoes, they do have a cut piece of melon to accompany all of them. 😂 I think the only things that might make you think twice are: the long waiting times (15 to sometimes 60 mins) and the wallet-singeing prices. 😧

Still…they only have 2 days left before they vacate the menu, so if you’re keen on trying this, MAN you better GO before it’s too late! 😋 (7.5/10)

I must be honest for a moment – when I first tried their products after they opened up a bake outlet at Djitsun Mall in Bedok, I was sorely disappointed. Their cruffins were hard, too crusty, unnecessarily sugary and dry + flaky on the inside. My love for Brotherbird just waned from there. That was 4 months ago.

Yesterday, I decided to give them a shot again. This was a spontaneous purchase as me and my brother were exploring CT Hub for snack options, and the place we went there for, Deliveroo’s Editons, was closed. 😔 Anyway, they had a pretty nice section of bakes in their current lineup! Yet, of all the flavours, the Taro was the one calling out to me…like…do you guys feel that way with food sometimes?! Because I do, and I am not ashamed to admit that. 😨 Hahaha I digress.

What a turn-around this was! This has very well reignited my love for Brotherbird – chewy, bready,
moist croissant with an exterior of an amazing crispness. And the part that really matters – it’s stuffed with taro filling! 😍 It’s super shiok when I was having this and finally got to the filling because it made for a substantial bite! Happy-inducing is what this was.

You know…I was wondering why I felt like life had been breathed into me today. Now that I think about it, I’m pretty damn sure this was partly the cause of that. 😋 (7.5/10)

A very satisfying piece of art to look at. I almost didn’t want to tackle this at all because of how beautiful it looks!

Taste-wise, it was pretty decent. 🤔 Honestly though, I don’t think it holds a candle to other desserts that I’ve tried which have incorporated miso; I couldn’t quite detect any umami-ness in a single bite – it mostly tasted like a regular cream cheese tart. 😅 But that’s not to say that I didn’t find it delicious. I paired this with a cup of their Single Origin Hot Chocolate, which hit the spot on a lull Tuesday afternoon. 🙂 (7.2/10)

Oh, and funny story though - before coming here, I thought this was the item that everybody was talking about. So I went down with the one objective of trying it. No mains, no other dessert. Just this one. And now that I’m penning this write-up, well well well…it turns out that people were talking and semi-raving about the grilled cheese instead. Hahaha count on me to get my details right. 😂

[Available on Burpple Beyond] This was pretty decent! I’ve tried a couple of other variations from elsewhere, but they don’t really measure up in terms of quality. This was the first time I genuinely enjoyed a bubble waffle, come to think of it. 🧐

The flavours I got here we’re Cocoa, Root Beer Float and Salted Caramel.

And perhaps not surprisingly, their Root Beer Float ice-cream was the highlight - it was very reminiscent of A&W’s root beer even though its flavour was predominantly vanilla. It kinda hit me in the feels hahaha. I got a 1-for-1 deal of it on Burpple Beyond, so I paid $14.20 for 2. Pretty neat deal if you ask me! 😛 (7.4/10)

Thankfully, despite the immense disappointment that is their Salted Egg Fries, they did slightly redeem themselves with their Peach Pie. 😋

Admittedly, nothing complex in taste, but it is very close to the Vitagen Peach which makes it very likeable. The chunks of white peach encased in the pie were also a lovely addition!

A late night treat from Lickers because I was craving for, of all things, waffles and ice cream at 12:30am. Yeah…just one of those inexplicable, random cravings, I guess. 🤪

I got their Roasted Pistachio (top) and their Oolong Lavender (bottom). Pretty decent scoops. I used to love lavender-flavour things but my tastebuds have been gradually developing an aversion against it; I wasn’t a fan of it unfortunately. But credit where it’s due - I did like the smokiness that the oolong brought to the flavour, as it added a nuance to it. 🧐

I would have also loved for the waffles to be more substantial. It had a pretty scanty interior, and a crispy crust, which made it fall short in the satisfaction department and ultimately led to it being so-so at best. But I do see why it’s that way though - when I was nearly finished with it, it had soaked up a fair amount of the ice-cream and amped up the texture. 🤗

An oasis of thick, supple and moist slice of banana loaf blanketed by a gamut of ingredients – mascarpone, almond nut butter, banana slices, strawberries, blueberries, blueberries, green grapes – and a drizzle of honey encompassing the centerpiece. It’s just as decadent as the first time I remember having it. 😋

It was a luxurious treat that went hand in hand with the Hot Sesame Coco I ordered together with this! 😍

Back at one of my usual spots after running some errands. Black sesame and chocolate…another pairing which has never crossed my mind once, but after trying it for myself, I had a “why didn’t I think of that?!” moment. 🤯

Their hot chocolate drink has a little bit of bitterness, characteristic of the taste of cocoa powder. The black sesame adds depth to that bitterness as it injects it with a prominent roasty, and a meekly smoky note. I enjoyed it. It was really like a type of like a mocha I’ve never had before, to put it in a loose way. 😧

I must have had too many matcha products in my life because the Matcha °3, which is supposedly their most intense-tasting one, only borderline satiated my cravings for the shaded green tea. 😂 But still, even though I’d happily profess my love for green tea in all degrees of intensity, I always set my sights on the more bitter range. Hvala came close to hitting the mark, if I have to be honest.

And also, the Hokkaido Milk was a welcome addition as it can help to neuter or subdue the umami, bitter taste of the Matcha °3. Come to think of it, I think may be a little too overbearing if if you had the Matcha °3 on its own. This means that both flavours made for quite the perfect pairing.

Just take note though – they don’t provide samples for the ice-cream, so you have to be certain of your choices already even without an opportunity for risk aversion. 🤪
