Has anyone tried Truffle Waffles before?

I’m smelling strong wafts of truffles just like the one we get with our fries. Except, it’s this red velvet waffle staring back at me.

Lightly/barely sweetened. Pairing perfectly with the syrup, fruits and rich gelato.

Opted for a really piquant Roasted Pistachio and the pretty Mermaid gelato. The latter being a strawberry and blueberry swirled dairy.

Every bite a surprise and delight ❤️ what an experience!
Speculoos crumble definitely upped the ante further too in terms of adding a touch of spice and crisp to it all 🤗

It was more like a very much denser sponge with large air pockets than a buttery fluffy scone texture I know.

Sort of floury a taste. The many walnuts added a nice crunch to the bland texture of the dense cake.

Coffee flavour was pretty minimal.

Incredibly fluffy and spongy.. somewhat reminiscent of those vanilla cake mix boxes.

I enjoy lightly toasting it till the chips turn gooey in a slightly crisp muffin top!

Oh and don’t expect to find choc chips beyond the top portion! Haha. The rest is really just cake.

First of all, I have to say, PV has managed a great cupcake batter technique. Their bakes are consistently dense, with mini porous pockets and soft yet importantly, not dried out all at once.

I like it!

Could have been a tad heavier on the earl grey flavour AND maybe a bergamot/citrus based cream cheese would go well.

Because it’s honestly mainly plain sugars I’m tasting in terms of the flavour profile presented.

It’s my first time seeing a juicy kueh dah dah. Do you see that fat drop on the glass?

It was flatly sweet encased in a sticky crepe that had no bite :/

Nice burst of flowy smooth sugar

But for some reason it went beyond the bliss point of sweetness to a mild sour?

The dessicated coconut was also dry.
Not a great crumb to the limp dough.

It’s such a refreshment in the swelter.

Perfectly tangy, and in my quirky opinion, a cutely scented sweet pop of lychee flavour that perks your day.

But the scoop size is quite inconsistent huh. Haha

Wow, death by chocolate is truly enpointe a name for this dish.

But it was every mouthful of indulgent pleasure. Not overly sweet, the warm dense sponge cake in 2 different layers of chocolate density (silky liquid lava pool + an even thicker gooier fudge) is so RICH so.. ENJOYABLE.

Medium -to- dark chocolate definitely helps ensure your palate doesn’t go into overload.

That icy vanilla ice cream was also so chock full of vanilla richness. Speckled generously with the black spots 😍 wish it was 2 larger scoops to prolong that hot/cold titillation

Definitely share it between 3-4 folks. Extremely rich

SILKY STICKY GELATO

chocolatey hazelnut is a level of mamma Mia richness

But it’s really pricey + I thought the chocolate still didn’t quite hit bliss point in terms of depth (ie the quality of the cacao/ darkness of it used wasn’t quite there. Using dark gallery as a point of reference)

I’ve heard many throwing flak on tong heng but I love the flake in the crust. This crust right here is like a nice cross between the buttery tart and fluffy flaked pastry ☺️
Enjoyable but doesn’t crumble too easily and quickly.

And the CREAMY centre ⭐️

$1.90... for a stellar piece of sweet pastry.. isn’t too bad. I think we’re just used to cheap prices of traditional bakes..

But I mean.. look at that famous Hong Kong egg tart at taka. That is great too but so much pricier!!
