Sautéed spaghetti with sweet shrimp spicy XO
sauce topped with shio konbu, onsen egg and
ebiko @ $21++. I enjoyed this bowl of pasta a lot, and would come back for it again! Imagine dry pasta in hei bee hiam and shrimps - shiok! Try it to know it!

Warning: It can be quite spicy for some. Not for the faint-hearted.

What's better is that The Coffee Academics is on The Entertainer App, 1-for-1 Main Course!

Always in love with Lady M's mille crêpes - always have the right balance. This has layers of passion fruit infused cream topped with tangy passion fruit glaze. Sweet, sour and light - just right! Each slice is priced at $9.50.

Side note, the macchiato here is not what you would expect from other cafes. I didn't really like it.

Was introduced to try this pandan kaya cake ($4.90) at HariAnns. They are newly opened at Suntec City, between Krispy Kreme and the money changer. Had high expectations since I love pandan kaya especially the one from Bengawan Solo.

Two thick layers of the pandan kaya fudge and only a thin layer of cake between them. I didn't enjoy it as much even though it sure tasted light and not too sweet. If they had balanced the cake and fudge more, it would have tasted better. Would still go back to Bengawan Solo to satisfy future cravings for pandan kaya cake!

Oreo Bingsu ($13.80) is a classic flavour and can never go wrong. Coffee Granola Bingsu ($20.20) is one of the premiums one and is topped with homemade granola, almond slices, whole cashew nuts, vanilla ice cream, and drizzled with espresso. The aroma from the espresso sure wakes you up a little!

Exclusive to the Rochester outlet, the Blueberries with Lavender Bingsu ($16.80) sure looks pretty and insta-worthy! The purple cookie crumbs with some blueberries and a scoop of vanilla icecream gives a refreshing taste when eaten together with the milky snowy ice. The lavender chocolate even comes in a heart shape which makes us all go melted.

P.S NSY Rochester is having a sure win lucky dip for purchase of the Blueberries with Lavender Bingsu.

You know it's Spring when you see the pretty blossom pink everywhere! The green tea sponge cake is stacked with layers of cherry blossom flavoured cream. The sponge cake could have been more moist. But overall, this is a really light cake for desserts.

My 2nd purchase from L'Éclair. The eclairs are not cheap ($8 to $8.50 each) and the only reason I was introduced to this place is because of The Entertainer App. Both of my purchases I've got the 3-for-3 eclairs at only $25.50. :)

Must try: Ispahan, Blood Orange Chocolate, Cranberry White Chocolate and itakuja 55%.

A cosy place for after-dinner desserts. Our 2nd time here and the waffles and ice cream never disappoints us. Plain waffle with a single scoop costs $8.90, and top up $3.50 for an additional scoop. No GST or service charge imposed. Their dark chocolate and Bailey's are one of the nicer flavours for the night. Cookies and cream was on the safe side.

Chanced upon this popup stall just outside of Giant. It is selling MSW ice cream - $12/pint or $3.50/cup. Frankly speaking, I can't differentiate the different grades/types of durians so I don't know if it really tasted like MSW. But it sure has an acceptable durian taste. My mum who is very picky about food said it can't be MSW if it's only $3.50. But personally I think it's worth trying and I may buy it again when I have a crave.

I haven't had whipped cream on my frap in a long while. But how can I resist the green tea infused whipped cream especially when this is only my first cup?! The green tea powder made the whipped cream less sweet and more tolerable for me.

The best time to eat bingsu is when there are 1-for-1 offers. No special occasion - except that we've got The Entertainer App! The offers are applicable for regular and large sizes, so isn't it worth it?!

We had regular Injeolmi ($10.90) and Green Tea ($11.90) bingsu with milk. A tad too bad there is no more soya milk, but both tasted great! Nothing to complain when we only paid $10.90 for 2 bingsu. Simply love the chewy rice cakes found inside Injeolmi!


Stuffed Chicken Breast, Mushrooms, Black Olives, Red Cherry Brandy Reduction, Grilled Tomatoes, Kale Walnut Salad ($27). Kith Cafe (Marina Square) is on The Entertainer App!
