💰: Cheese Guanyin ($5)
🕚: 12pm / medium queue (waited for about 7min)
🚇: Tanjong Pagar MRT Station • 1min walk
📍: Tanjong Pagar Centre

The hot topic of the town: Cheese Guanyin.

Goodness, can you even swallow them together? 😂

I'd say it's super unique. Cheese came in the form of salty foam floating on top of the Chinese Guanyin tea.

It's super filling, without the help of my friend, I don't think I can finish it on my own. IF YOU DON'T STIR WELL, you'll be left with a thick layer of salty foam at the end.

Would say that LiHo has put in effort in packaging to differentiate themselves from other bubble tea brands. Solid and sturdy cups. However, not very environmentally-friendly.


💰: Lava Cake ($5.50) • Dark Choco Cake/1slice ($8.80)
🕚: 9pm / no queue
🚇: Boon Lay MRT Station • 1min walk
📍: Level 2 (Old Jurong Point)

Could be something most burpees would have eaten, nonetheless, would wish to mark this day when I met up with Boss and Skele (short form of skeleton, she's skinny like hell that's why).

Stepping into the working adult life could be stressful, and that's exactly so for Skele. Therefore, we decided to forego Ji De Chi and let her indulge in her favorite chocolate world, even though that would mean a few more rounds of jogging to burn off those calories.

Though life is bitter, we still chose one slice Dark Chocolate cake and a cup of hot lava. Dark choco is to cake ratio is almost 4:1, so it's really quite worth the price.

Hot lava cake would be a cheaper and exciting option for those who have not tried it before. Hot and medium sweet chocolate syrup wrapped in chocolate cake like a muffin and placed on top of vanilla ice cream. Both desserts are quite filling and could even be served as dinner.

Stressed? Spell it backwards and it's time for desserts.


Desserts after dinner at Chinatown Food Complex which is just a street away. One street down and you'll reach Chinatown MRT Station.

FOOD: There're shaved icings, a good variety of hot desserts, and (uniquely) some dim sum like lormaigai. As compared to the usual dessert shops that I frequent, have to admit that their paste is smoother!

PRICE: Generally the same as other dessert shops which you find in malls. Prices are inclusive of GST :)

AMBIENCE: It may look small from the outside but it's actually the size of three shops. Therefore, you don't really need to worry about not getting a seat here. Environment is clean.

SERVICE: With menus provided, order on your own at the cashier counter with your table number. Nothing exceptional.

CONCLUSION: Should really try their pastes. As many of the dessert stalls at Chinatown Food Complex close early, this would be a good alternative.
