Chocolate mousse, praline feuilletine and hazelnut dacquoise – I think this chocolate cake tastes almost exactly like how it looks! The addition of the gold leaf is also so cute, so #atas. After trying one cake and one plated dessert, we thought the cakes were better (you can’t go wrong with chocolate cake). Fun fact: Voyage Patisserie opens till midnight from Fridays to Sundays 🌃

Finally visited this newly opened cafe called Voyage Patisserie that specialises in plated desserts, cakes and tarts.

I’m quite partial to lemony desserts so we decided to share this plated dessert which consisted of whipped ganache, some lemon sablee, yuzu-like curd, jelly and lemon sorbet.

The dessert was so pretty. We felt the dessert could do with more biscuit as it was really mostly ganache. The sorbet was also small and melted quickly (it didn’t really taste like lemons to me) but I really enjoyed the crisp candied lemon. We found that pretty interesting :)

How to get to Voyage Patisserie: It’s a few stops down from Great World City in the Tiong Bahru/Outram Park area, and has a bus stop directly opposite (Before Outram Flyover) and is a few minutes’ walk from Outram Park MRT station.

I got lawyered today #karmaisreal 😥 It would have been an expensive $70 error if my friend hadn’t thrown a $50 note at me 🙈 I had a bunch of TungLok vouchers, and one of the terms is “Each voucher is valid ... with every spending of $100 (before GST and service charge) ... subject to a maximum of 5 vouchers per table, per bill, per visit only.” My mum and I read it to mean you can use the vouchers so long as you spend a min. of $100 before GST and service charge.

After re-reading the term when the cashier quite firmly told me I couldn’t use two vouchers, I realised the minimum spend just to use a single $50 voucher is $100 before GST and service charge (the moment I got schooled by a Carousell user who I told off). I feel pretty dumb but it makes sense, restaurants wouldn’t happily give out hundreds of dollars of vouchers if they couldn’t earn more $$$ back from their customers. And to get these $150 vouchers we had spent $400 in the first place...And truthfully, the language in the vouchers could be much better worded, much clearer and less ambiguous, e.g. a minimum spend of $100 for every $50 voucher, or one $50 voucher is redeemable for every $100 spend.

Not sure if my feedback will effect any change but there are a few other things I personally dislike about LingZhi (my first time).
1. The website’s reservation does not even work for both mobile and desktop.
2. The staff are EXTREMELY pushy when it comes to ordering drinks (which fyi the vouchers cannot be used on, and which the vouchers don’t even state - more ambiguity). One of them asked my friend to order a drink like 3-4 times even after my friend told her more than once she wanted to look at the menu first. Some of the drinks are expensive at about $3.40 (excl GST and service charge) for just one cup (not even a pot) of hot tea. A glass of carrot juice is $6 (excl GST and service charge).
3. The food (i.e. cooked vegetables) is really expensive for what it is. Eating healthy food outside is really unnecessarily expensive. I think there needs to be more vegetarian restaurants so that they can be competitively priced and encourage more people to reduce meat consumption.
4. Lots of food wasn’t available. There aren’t even any stickers on the menu to indicate their unavailability... When I told the staff this (my friend had to translate to Mandarin since the waitress doesn’t understand the word sticker), the woman just retorted that they are changing the menu soon. She also gave lots of excuses for why the food wasn’t available, i.e. that the restaurant realised those desserts couldn’t keep for 2 days or more (worrisome!), and that the latest batch of kale is too old. Huh? Just buy new, different kale?
5. Most of the staff communicate in Mandarin and aren’t fluent in English. Most of the food items on the receipt are printed in Mandarin - doesn’t accommodate non-Mandarin speakers + readers and I’m sure a large portion of vegetarians are potential customers who aren’t fluent in Mandarin. It creates an uncomfortable communication barrier between such customers and servers.
6. The only positive thing I have to say is the food is pretty healthy, decently cooked and not too heavily focused on mushrooms which I dislike. But for the price tag, I would think twice before returning anytime soon. All of the above is my own personal opinion and review of my experience today.

Waffles are just pancakes with abs! The waffle dessert was tad expensive at almost $20. We shared this among eight people. Wasn’t that amazing although the strawberries were really generous and huge.

Always spoiled by friends. My gelato cravings have been satisfied ✔️
On the left is nutella, thick and sinfully chocolatey and hazelnuty. And on the right we have pistachio, full of nutty aroma and flavour 😋 @dapaolosg @chocolatmilano

Hidden in the basement of Takashimaya is this gelato place called Venchi. The gelato is made here in Singapore at their Paragon outlet using ingredients air flown from Italy. This is definitely my favourite gelato place, it’s definitely worth checking it out if you’re a fan of all things hazelnut!

It’s very true when people say you can’t be happy all the time. Similarly, things can’t go right all the time either. Here’s my yolé from Tangs over the weekend - had to fight off an auntie who kept trying to cut my queue while I was at @yolesingapore and kept glaring and shoving me, and it was in the afternoon when almost all of my favourite toppings were sold out 😔 And the caramelised biscuit sauce kept dripping for some reason and ended up staining my jeans before I had even started eating ☹️ Also wish that the height/amount of frozen yoghurt was more consistent... And that the fruit toppings didn’t all run out so quickly. And that my favourite Yolé outlet at Wisma comes back soon (I hope). I miss the nice lady who works there 😭 Nevertheless, Yolé is still my favourite frozen yoghurt brand ♥️

Decided to try the new and improved acai tubs from local acai company @selvafoods which I got from @littlefarms!
The tubs are much easier to open now. The earlier versions had lime but now it’s been replaced with a very flavourful lemon that compliments the acai very well. The acai in each tub all comes from a single source harvested from the Amazon 🌴 With this tub, I did find that the acai flavour is not as strong and concentrated as it used to be (not sure if the lemon flavour overpowers the acai or if the recipe has changed). But having said that, I appreciate that this 500g tub of acai is reasonably priced and I can enjoy this ice cold acai without having to leave the house! :)

Yolé are always coming up with innovative new products! 😍 Their R&D team have been working really hard.

I finally tasted their latest ice cream in the raspberry flavour!

Like with most Yolé items on the menu, I find it hard to describe exactly what every product tastes like.

But to put it simply, this raspberry ice cream tastes like raspberry chocolate.

It’s also fruity with a gelato-like texture, and a hint of frozen yoghurt flavour to it. It’s great if you have a sweet tooth (and especially good on a hot day!)

They also sell this in a takeaway ice cream tub, so drop by your nearest Yolé outlet and enjoy this in the comfort of your home :)

Ordered this parfait from Uya on our visit a few weeks ago. When it arrived, we all felt a little misled because it didn’t look anything like in the menu, so here’s a more accurate picture 😂

The parfait consists of cereal, adzuki beans, green tea Pocky, green tea ice cream, mochi, and pudding.

Pros: The cereal was a lot, and very crispy and fresh. This dessert can be shared among lots of people, about 3-4 people.
Cons: Expensive for what it is, didn’t look anything like in the menu. Menu also didn’t provide a description of the parfait. Personally felt that the parfait from 7-Eleven in Japan is much better quality, tastier and a lot cheaper!

Have you ever had (or heard of) dessert dumplings? 😍 These sinful dumplings from @dumpling.darlings are filled with vanilla bean, amaretto, cream cheese and poached pear, and served with a generous dollop of Tasmanian honey ice cream 🍯♥️ From the first mouthful, we thought that the flavour and texture of the dumplings closely resembled a slightly crispier version of goreng pisang (deep fried bananas) 🍌

Project Acai Lemon Parfait [$12]
Decided to try this yummy acai creation on @desireeweee's recommendation!

The @projectacai lemon parfait consists of: a special blend of lemon and acai, nut butter, dried coconut, goji berries, strawberries, bananas, cacao nibs, granola, pineapple and mango!

Surprisingly, it wasn't at all tangy and sour and I loved how everything went extremely well together. This lemon and acai mix needs to be permanently on the menu 😂 Really liked the crunch of the sweet granola and coconut paired with the refreshing citrus fruits. For fans of citrusy flavours, this is a must try! 🍋
