Desserts

I squeal with excitement when I find a place serving good desserts . I like anything old school - from an old fashion butter cake to a homemade Apple tart. For something more luxurious , ice cream and waffles will always be my default choice

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi ‘s widely read book on “flow “ explains that it is a state where a person performing an activity is in an immense state of enjoyment and where there is complete self absorption resulting in a loss of sense of time and space .

While the surroundings echo with loud laughters and group talks - all I could see and taste and feel was my brandied cherry 🍒 ice cream .

Completely absorbed in it .

The best way to start the weekend .

You can always find a reliable mid day snack at Cedele .

This banana Crumble boasts of a moist buttery soft cake adorned with generous bananas and oat and walnut clusters .

Best warmed up and paired with an organic Lemongrass tea .

Gotcha ! matcha-liCious !

These days I am matcha-crazy.
Anything matcha and my red alert 🚨 sirens !

I’d usually not go for fads and queues .
But being strategically at suntec today and that there was NO QUEUE 😱. It had to be my day !

The matcha red bean pancake was good. Crisp at the edges and sufficiently soft when eaten fresh .
Mine came right off the hot pan. I appreciate the creaminess of the red beans and that they are not too sweet at all.( the red bean fillings of the pancakes at the Taka basement supermarket is way too sweet ). The red beans are sourced from Taiwan’s pin tung - one of the best places you can possibly source red beans because of the fertile soil and desirable climate. I would have loved for the matcha pancakes to have a little more matcha- Omph given the price . But in general - still acceptable .

I paired it with a soy matcha latte and really enjoyed the creaminess of the matcha latte and how it was not too sweet at all .

6.90 for a set of pancake and drink is not extremely cheap but since these hail from Hokkaido - I Guess the once in a while indulgence is ok.

What’s more YOLO ! 😁

Back to kind kones but in no mood for ice cream .

Instead - I have come for their coffee walnut cake which is so moist , filled with walnuts and a nice date flavour .

Not too sweet - this is perfect for an afternoon tea treat .

At 3 dollars , this is a steal .

Much needed spice to kill the flu 🤧 germs 🦠- that’s so prevalent these days .

Very well made latte with a good hint of spice from the tumeric and black pepper.

So comforting for the body and soul .

Perfectly done molten chocolate cake with a gooey centre and high quality vanilla bean ice cream .

Was craving for a good cup of matcha latte and found my way to hvala .

A little disappointed with the matcha latte here - not that the grade of green tea powder wasn’t good but more so the milk 🥛 overpowered the green tea powder and it wasn’t a harmonious drink.

It could likely be the brand of milk used .

It was a pretty small cup for 5.80 and the “ value Queen “ within me wasn’t too happy too.

Most of the cakes are also not made in house - I saw them at cafes else where and the gelatos were expensive😨.

Still on my search for a good cup of matcha latte 🥺

For days when you need something citrusy - this orange- carrot cake does best .

Craving for a light and tender cake with a burst of citrus flavour , I found my way to Cedele .

Intensely fruity , with bits of carrots and a nice finish of orange glaze .

Something that you could whip up at home but the thought of the buying , baking and washing . I’d rather pay 4.80 and sit and enjoy .

Ready to roll into the weekend .... ....

Albert centre food centre
( I call this the Hawker near fu lu Shou)

Whampoa beancurd and soya bean is my default place to go for a consistently good and fresh beancurd .

Forget mr bean’s beancurd which is seemingly hard , stiff and “ not made on site” these days ...

Go for the real stuff . Whampoa soya bean is so silky, smooth, jiggly and most importantly made freshly on site . I previously had whampoa beancurd at whampoa Hawker , clementi Central Hawker and old airport Hawker - all of which were either less accessible or “ too stifling hot “ to sit and eat in .

Surprised to find this stall at albert street Hawker and in fact , there were many notable stalls like Li fang porridge , a Hk style Claypot rice stall, the stall selling black and white combo carrot cake , Wu shi nan tai yong Tau fu ( which looks intriguing with their quite orange queer looking prawn paste ) and angel Teochew fish soup ( which had a queue even at 5 pm ) .

I say go for this bowl of bean-y good comfort first before your eyes distract you and take you to the more sinful food .

At 1.30 , this was really very for money .
Ask for some complimentary soya bean water to be added to your beancurd - if you enjoy eating your beancurd the way I do .

Coffee ain’t the same as it was before ...

Cappuccino was thin , coffee was weak ...

Why do things have to change ? 😭

My love for chocolate has deepened....

And so has my understanding.

I never knew what was the difference between artisan handmade chocolates versus the store bought ones.

Now I do ! This beautiful sea salt chocolate tart is decadent with a deep chocolate flavour and not too sweet. All you get is a cocoa heaven 😊

The sea salt complements the chocolate and brings such an interesting taste profile to the tarts.

Take one bite of the tart and one sip of their cocoa tea . .. insanely comforting .

Don’t leave the shop before sampling their handmade chocolates 😊 my favourite has got to be the ones made with Peru cocoa beans. Intensely fruity !

The nicely wrapped chocolate bars make very nice and handy gifts too !

Craving for a fluffy muffin that’s not too greasy or heavy on butter and am running out of places to go so .... back to Cedele .

The muffin is soft , fluffy and moist and baked with real blue berries .

Not exactly most value of money at 6.80 with a tea or coffee but somewhere to quickly recharge and rest your legs .

Don’t expect friendly service - just eat and go 😊

I dream of food .
