While I was about to give this the BEST MATCHA TART IN SINGAPORE award, I almost forgot about the one from @bemyguestcafe (which had unfortunately ceased operation) that still uphold this no.1 award proudly and strongly in my heart 🤭. However, this was still one of the better ones I’ve had, ranking #2 in my 💚, and especially one that’s bound to satisfy hardcore matchaholics. Encased within the firm, crisp tart crust lies a thin bottom layer of unsweetened black sesame feuillitine along with matcha ganache, and lastly topped with a kawaii matcha bavaroise “paw” that came with a pleasant surprise of Okinawa black sugar core within 🤩. Matchaholics be warned! Though the matcha ganache here isn’t as potent as the one from Be my guest, the earthy flavour and astringency was prominent, with a lingering bitter undertone which makes every bite a blissful addiction for me 💚. Personally an anti-black sesame, hence I wasn’t a fan of the black sesame feuillitine that contributed to a hint of roasted, charred and woody flavour profile to the earthy matcha element. The pudding-alike matcha bavaroise was creamy, luscious with a subtle earthy flavour (not as robust as the matcha ganache of course), along with thin layer of Okinawa black sugar sandwiched within that provided a pleasant tinge of sweetness. Simply adore the crisp tart shell as well that withheld an aromatic buttery fragrance, though I personally feel it would be better if the matcha ganache filling within could have been slightly thicker to achieve a well-balanced ratio of pastry tart: filling .

[PS: This tart is currently unavailable for purchase but do keep a look out @dairyandcream for future online
bake sales! ✨ On a side note, I am also secretly wishing if there could be other flavours of tarts in the near future, perhaps a Houjicha one? 🤓] .

As a huge fan of the cookie sauce in Llaollao or other frozen yogurt chains (and a MUST-order for me during my every visit), I am glad that it is now available as a flavour for the frozen yogurt as well! 💖 Having said that, cookie butter was also one of Yole’s past flavours, which wasn’t a froyo but rather a milk softserve base, without the characteristic tangy, refreshing note. The cookie butter flavour here was surprisingly distinct and not cloying in the smooth , creamy frozen yogurt, with its sweet caramelised flavour blending in harmoniously with the tangy, sour yogurt base. Fans of cookie butter like me can also opt for the cookie sauce to go along with your cup of froyo, which helps to enhance and intensify the Speculoos flavour profile. The Sanum now comes with your choice of 2 sauces instead of 1, though I opt for both to be the cookie sauce 🤭. Along with 3 fruits and 2 crunch of your choice, I was rather disappointed that it was served with an inproportionate balance of froyo:toppings, to which I was struggling to finish the fruits and crunches since the 30% of froyo here could be gone in a few mouthfuls. Also due to this reason I decided to order another cup of petit mini sized froyo as an accompaniment to the remaining toppings in the Sanum. Even though the original flavour of frozen yogurt here is good enough, I certainly hope that the caramelised cookie froyo can remain as a permanent flavour here ! 🙏🏻 .

Ongoing Summer fair @isetansg Scotts till 11 July! ✨The sweet potato pie comes in an option of original yellow or purple, which I opted for the latter. The pastry crust is flaky with a caramelised golden brown exterior, with a substantial interior of creamy, thick purple sweet potato filling that withheld a pleasant, subtle tinge of natural sweetness. On the other hand, the cheesecakes paled in comparison, with the crumble base lacking a characteristic buttery fragrance and felt as though it had been stored for quite some time. In short, it didn’t feel fresh and the texture was thick,dense and creamy which might not suited for the faint-hearted. The purple potato flavour came with tiny chunks of purple potato embedded within, while the cheesecake itself was infused with a purple potato flavour. Despite the vibrant lavender-alike purplish hues that provided an aesthetically appealing outlook, the flavour was subtle and barely detectable, masked by the tangy, piquant note of cream cheese. While the earl grey cheesecake did carry off distinct subtle notes of tea flavour on the first few bites, it was unfortunate (and perhaps inevitable) that it faded off almost instantly, overwhelmed by the stronger cheese element. //
On a side note, the lacklustre service here added even more salt to my ‘wound’, with unfriendly stares from the staff if you were to sample and not purchase anything here. Also, when I requested for a box and ice gel pack for my purchase, the staff reluctantly gave in and seemed displeased with her impolite tone and unfriendly gestures .

Officially my ultimate favourite Budae Jiggae place in Seoul, with the most pocket-friendly pricing and generous portion I could ever ask for! ✨ Depending on the number of parties present, each pot comprises of ramyeon noodles, dumplings, hotdog, luncheon meat slices, tofu, rice cakes, onion slices, minced meat in a spicy, flavorful and tangy stew. There’s also cheese slices atop the ramyeon noodles which had unfortunately dissolved into the piping hot stew and hence not visible or detectable for the sight and senses anymore. Perhaps this might seem like a mess of assorted ingredients swimming in an orange pool but never judge a book by its cover - it was certainly a messy but yummy affair! 👍🏻 From the savoury preserved meat (my favourite element in army stew always 💖), soft tofu to chewy rice cakes, every single element here was a good complement to the stew. What’s more, there’s also free flow of mini hash brown balls that were deep fried to an ideal crisp perfection on its golden brown exterior , along with kimchi and pickles, white rice and also complimentary soda beverages for all diners ! 🍻 Such a steal at this pocket-friendly pricing and abundant portion that left me with a bloated albeit satisfied stomach thereafter 😋. Definitely revisiting this eatery the next time I head back to Seoul! 💯 .

In conjunction with World’s Chocolate Day (7 July), @kindkones_sg is giving out complimentary wholemeal vegan waffle cone with purchase of any chocolate related ice cream flavours (salted chocolate chip, chocolate sorbet, sugar-feee chocolate sorbet). All ice cream and bakes here are vegan-friendly, which are made using coconut / almond milk instead of the usual cow’s milk. The keto chocolate sorbet (sugar-free) as featured here is made using 100% coco powder, with xylitol sweetener as an alternative to sugar. The end result is one that came with a bittersweet flavour profile, thick and chocolatey, along with a softer texture that’s more prone to melting and hence it’s advisable to consume it in a cup instead of cone. Hardcore chocoholics would love this for it’s intense cocoa flavour that was divine , indulgent albeit imparting a sorethroat-inducing fear factor to me 🤭. On the other hand, the chunky peanut butter cheesecake cake came with a smooth, creamy texture in the coconut milk based ‘cheese’, a slight chunky mouthfeel from the nuts embedded within, coupled with a nutty, gritty base that’s made with walnuts, cashews and dates. The presence of peanut ‘butter’ came as swirls embedded within the luscious, creamy ‘cheese’cake component, contributing to a a subtle tinge of saltiness. Personally felt that it would have been better if the peanut butter flavour was stronger and more distinct as the coconut flavour seemed to have stolen the limelight from all the other elements here. Nevertheless, it was still not too bad and worth a try if you are craving for cheesecakes but wish to indulge with a lower level of guilt .

The brownie was fudgy albeit a little dry when eaten in silo. The main highlight here got to be the top layer of chocolate chip cookie dough frosting that was creamy, chunky, couple with a a pleasant tinge of subtle saltiness that I adore, serving as a counter balance to the otherwise saccharine sweetness. Topped with a bittersweet dark chocolate coating and chocolate cookies crumbles, this decadent, sore-throat inducing chocolatey goodness is highly recommended for sharing unless you are a hardcore chocoholic. Do pair it with the free scoops of Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough ice cream for the best of both worlds! 😉
2️⃣ Dough Rae Me cupcake🧁 [$5]
Chocolate chip cookie flavoured cupcake topped with chocolate chip cookie dough frosting surrounded by chocolate chips and topped with a wedge of handmade chocolate chip cookie, this cupcake also contains a dark chocolate fudge core. The cupcake was soft, fluffy and sufficiently moist, with the dark chocolate fudge core adding a bittersweet flavour profile. On the downside, the frosting was a tad too sweet for my liking, with a cloying saccharine factor that caused me to omit it after two small spoonfuls. Personally I would prefer the brownie over this, though this cupcake might be a safer option for a solo indulgence. .

Using cane sugar that’s perhaps a healthier alternative to sugar syrup, the pink matcha latte is lightly sweetened, with a dual gradient of colours that’s aesthetically appealing 💚💖. Sad to admit that this might not meet up to the expectations of hardcore matchaholics, with the freshly whisked matcha being overshadowed by its pink companion when the layers are incorporated together as a a whole. The characteristic earthy flavour and vegetal, bitter undertone became a secondary flavour profile to the tangy, fruity and subtle floral notes of the pink elements. Apart from the aesthetics, another saving grace could be the intensity of sweetness, which was minimal in this beverage .

2️⃣Matcha cream cheese donut [3300 KRW ~> $3.96]
Not your typical deep fried donuts but rather one that’s baked, with a texture resembling that of a financier instead. A cakey texture that’s dense and crumbly, the top coating of matcha cream cheese was also something that might not appeal to hardcore matchaholics, leaning towards the sweet side that lacks earthiness. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed this donut for its texture! 😋. Perhaps getting other flavours might be a safer (and wiser) option 🤭.

Served with Milk softserve by default, I requested for a change to Soymilk which the staff gladly obliged to. Stably nestled on a base of coffee-infused ladyfinger biscuit that was soft and fluffy, the softserve was smooth, creamy with a subtle albeit aromatic soy flavour. The presence of mascarpone cream at the side might seem as a calefare here but it certainly enhanced the flavour profile, smooth and luscious while adding a pleasant tinge of sweetness to the characteristic bitter undertone of caffeine here. My initial skeptism of this mediocre-looking place ended up as a blessing in disguise, which I am glad to have indulged in with no regrets during my remaining last few days in Seoul! 😋👍🏻 .

Flavour of the month for June, this black sorbet featured here is actually a lemon sorbet in disguise, coming with a refreshing tangy note 🍋. An option to also add on for the black waffle cone that not only comes insta-worthy but was crisp and a good complement to the creamy scoops of delight (I actually polished it all off, defying my usual habit of empty cones disposal 🤭). Though a sorbet, the texture was light yet not too icy, retaining a slight creamy mouthfeel🖤. As for the other scoop, I chose Ice Jolly Pong, which was actually the flavour of the month for May. Was initially skeptical about the taste, as I was totally clueless on what Jolly pong is or taste like. Upon further research online, I actually discovered it’s actually a Korean breakfast cereal- popped kernels made from whole-wheat, high in dietary fibre as well! Swirled in a milk based ice-cream, the flavour comes off as one that held a subtle roasted note coupled with a tinge of bittersweet coffee-like aroma.
The pairing with the black (lemon) sorbet resulted in a two-dimensional sweet and sour combination that wasn’t too bad after all! 👍🏻 .
[PS: Black sorbet is only available till 30 June] .

💖 With it’s pleasant, lingering aroma of floral, citrusy notes amidst the distinct, prominent bergamot tea flavour, the earl grey cake was also sufficiently moist, alternately layered with a substantial amount of smooth earl grey cream resting on a base of crispy chocolate feuillitine that contributed to a pleasant crunch factor for the palate. Secretly hoping my next birthday cake can be this but unfortunately the export back to my hometown is mission impossible 😭 .

2️⃣ Tiramisu tarte [6000KRW ~>$7.20]
Though this paled in comparison to the Earl grey cake, it was still decently enjoyable, comprising of smooth mascarpone cream cheese within the coffee-infused ladyfinger biscuits that was soft, fluffy with a bittersweet flavour. Would have been better if the coffee flavour and aroma was more prominent here. The tart crust was firm, solid and crisp albeit lacking in a buttery fragrance that I would have adore.
On a side note, I am certainly looking forward to my revisit before I leave Seoul to check out their other cake offerings (saw that there is MATCHA flavour too 😍) and most probably back for the Earl grey cake again! 😋 .

😋💖Coupled with a piquant cheesy flavour which provided a well-balanced, two dimensional tone of flavours to the well-marinated, tender fried chicken, be sure to grab your fork and lift up some cheese before it gets hardened up! 🧀✨Also, the chicken are boneless here which I personally prefer for convenient and fuss-free consumption .
2️⃣ Honey butter chicken 🍯[13900KRW ~> SGD$16.70]
Served with a small portion of fries, the honey butter chicken came with a golden brown crisp exterior, along with tender and juicy boneless chicken meat. The honey butter coating provided a pleasant tinge of sweetness that was surprisingly a good combination to the savoury fried chicken, imagine the honey butter chips but with crispy fried chicken tenders instead. //
Complimentary pickled radish and crackers are also served along with the fried chicken, serving as a good palate cleanser and appetizer respectively. One of the best fried chicken (imo) in Seoul that offers a variety of unique & interesting flavour (swipe to the end to view the menu) , which appeals to the adventurous me! 👍🏻 .
