𝐁𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐬𝐮𝐠𝐚𝐫 𝐛𝐨𝐛𝐚 (3.5 ⭐️; $9.60) - Soft brown sugar swiss roll and brown sugar chantilly with tiny mochi bits. Found the roll itself to lack flavour, and the sable to be more for Taco design purpose, but enjoyed the light caramel flavour that wasn’t too sweet.

𝐓𝐚𝐫𝐨 (4 ⭐️; $9.80) - Beyond the aesthetic flower, enjoyed the distinct taro flavour with the mixing of Hokkaido sweet potato providing a lingering but not overpowering sweetness. The sable tart base was thin and crisp, and nicely contrasted with the smooth cream and chewy mochi cubes.

𝐏𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐨 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐲 (4 ⭐️; $9.80) - As a pistachio fan, this checked the box in being ultra rich and nutty, with refreshing sweet-sour balance from the strawberry compote and fresh strawberries. If nitpicking, did find the tart base a tad too thick (was hard to cut through even with a knife), and would have preferred for slightly more pistachio in the pistachio almond praline.

Refreshing and well-constructed, the cake was a delightful interplay of crunchy seedless watermelon, light cream, and moist fluffy sponge fragranced with subtle rose flavour.

The thick slab of watermelon, and additional topping of watermelon tipped the balance off slightly in feeling more of fruits with a side of cake rather than an integrated cake. Thicker sponge:watermelon ratio would have likely done the trick. If comparing to the OG, also found that more almond dacquoise and topping of pistachio nuts would have enhanced the nuttiness to contrast with the berries. Overall, solid version of the original @blackstarpastry cake that came short in certain areas but still enjoyable in its own right.

They kindly offered us their cookies to sample and both the dark chocolate sea salt and pecan cookie were light and airy, crisp, and highly addictive.

Knew this gorgeous bamboo dessert was one to try the moment I saw it floating around IG and glad I did!

Pardoning the messy cut made (with dessert forks), the cross section featured even layers of black sesame mousse, feuilletine, matcha sponge and vanilla sable encased within a matcha mousse gateau.

The nutty black sesame was the more dominant flavour, and would have preferred for richer matcha flavour. Nonetheless, a delightful and enjoyable dessert with great textural interplay of jelly, smooth mousse, crunchy feuilletine, and crisp sable.

Their flat white ($5.50) was standard but enjoyed the pairing with a rich dark chocolate that enhanced the natural sweetness and nuttiness of the coffee.

🍏Apple Cinnamon Crumble: Spin on classic apple crumble by having it in tart form. Enjoyed the mix of crunchy crumble with sweet-sour Granny Smith and raisins - family’s favourite of the 4!

🫐 Blueberry Elderflower: Suitable for citrus lovers with the sour and smooth lemon curd. Perfumed with elderflower that added floral fragrance, similar to that of aromatic vanilla essence.

🎄Peppermint Feuilletine: Lovely mix of nutty feuilletine crisps, refreshing peppermint, and dark valrhona chocolate. Bonus points to the festive Christmas tree design.

🍫 Berry Brownie Bonbon: Rich and decadent chocolate brownie bonbons well balanced out by a sour berry compote.

Gorgeous looking and yummy Christmas-themed tarts. In general, we enjoyed all the unique festive flavours that were just the right level of sweetness. But we were slightly let down by the soft (and slightly soggy) tart crust (likely due to delivery). Would have preferred for a firmer and more buttery bite.

Second time having the 𝐝𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧 𝐦𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐬𝐞 (4.5 ⭐️; $5.50) which was luscious yet light and jam packed with flavour! We’ll even say this is our favourite durian dessert we’ve tried in Sg thus far! We also tried the 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 (4 ⭐️; $16.80) which consisted of D24 durian puffs, MSW craquelin puffs, and durian mochi. All were good - the puff was airy and stuffed to the brim and was our favourite. If nitpicking, the mochi skin was a tad thick and a bit sweeter than the rest.

An açai affair is one of our go-tos for consistently reliable yummy açai. Triple A was a smooth blend of sweet açai crowned by a plethora of jewels - bananas, blueberries, strawberries, dragonfruit, kiwi, goji berries, and your choice of drizzle! Also decided to try the Greek Physique which replaced 1/2 of acai with a bottom layer of yogurt. The yogurt provided an enjoyable sour tang albeit when mixed with the açai did taste more like berry yogurt.

We used to patronise Acai Affairs frequently when 1-1 on Burpple. They are no longer on burpple, but still a treat we’d willingly spend on, especially on sweltering hot days.

Besides açai, they offer @fizzicle Kombuchas. A reliable local brand with a colourful array of kombuchas that we find not as sweet as commercial ones and with distinct fizz and tang .

Strawberry watermelon cake
($8.90/slice)
⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️ (more of a 4.2)
🍴Ever since trying @blackstarpastry’s famed rendition, have been searching for a good one in SG but without much luck. Thus, was highly excited when friends at Oh Deli arranged to send over their freshly made version.

Refreshing and light on the palette, this unique cake featured juicy and crunchy watermelon sandwiched between almond dacquoise and light rose-flavoured cream, topped with strawberries and chopped pistachios. Delightful mix with just the right level of sweetness (ie., not sweet!).

While the nutty almond sponge was slightly dry on day 1, it became more moist subsequently. Compared to the iconic cake, the rose flavour was more subtle and the cream on the thinner & runnier side (or perhaps it was the heat that melted it). Nonetheless, a delightfully enjoyable take on one of my favourite cakes that got gobbled up way too quickly in this household!

⚠️ Do note that they rotate their cakes in store, with this only available on a rare seasonal basis. But do consider checking the deli out for hearty breakfast and mains, along with gourmet meat, produce, and wines from Australia and Europe.
