All the way to the West for this, and glad to say I wasn’t the least bit disappointed by the 𝙏𝙖𝙧𝙩 (~$8).
-
Most places usually have their lime/ lemon tarts too tangy or too creamy, ruining the experience for either TeamSour or TeamSweet. Not here though, bc this is TRULY the perfect balance.🧁
-
Carefully balanced sour lime curd with sweet almond cake, combined with the whole show of making this dessert: yes, it’s worth the trip down

I’ve reviewed this too many times before: you can check out #gfmoutrampark for older reviews, but I’ll say this again: one of THE BEST 𝙋𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙤 𝙞𝙘𝙚 𝙘𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙢𝙨 (~$5) around. 🍦
-
Contrasted the rich nutty pistachio with a lighter more refreshing 𝘽𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙮 𝙞𝙘𝙚 𝙘𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙢 (~$4.20) — tasting perfect as a recreation of the coconut chocolate bar. Flavours and textures like coconut flakes and cacao nibs done perFECTLY, @apiary.sg spoils the ice cream market 🥺

Ig @goodfomood

Reserved the first picture for their 𝙏𝙞𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙨𝙪 (~$8), which I’m so thankful the staff reccoed me, bc I’m choosey when it comes to Tiramisu, and this was sOLID stuff. 😚

The 𝘽𝙖𝙣𝙖𝙣𝙖 𝘼𝙡𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙙 𝙁𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙝 𝙏𝙤𝙖𝙨𝙩 (~$14) 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝘽𝙖𝙘𝙤𝙣 (~+$3) might just have given me diabetes. Perhaps not in the best way. It’s not a bad dish, but boi was it SWEET. From the caramelised bananas to the caramel drizzle even down to the bacon, I was a tad bit concerned if my pancreas could deal with this.

Ig @goodfomood

Luna’s 𝙈𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝𝙖 𝘾𝙖𝙠𝙚 (~$8) really screamed MATCHA. Those of y’all who eat sleep breathe matcha powder, this one’s for you. 🍵
-
With matcha powder sprinkled on top of fluffy peaks of matcha cream, the cake was off to a light mousse-like start. Sink your teeth in deeper to reveal a dense sponge chiffon (which, surprisingly even radiated matcha) and of course the best part of it all- packed layers of matcha cream. 🍰
-
Now, this wasn’t just your run of the mill sweet af matcha cream. No, this puts those wannabe cafes that offer matcha desserts for the sake of incorporating matcha in their menu to SHAME. I was undoubtedly thrown off, and pleasantly surprised, though I would’ve liked thicker layers of sponge cake to balance it. 🥰

Ig @goodfomood

My go to dessert flavour is chocolate, but I went out on a limb here to get the 𝙈𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙤 𝙋𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙡𝙤 𝙏𝙖𝙧𝙩 (~$8.50) and being a risk taker does pay off! 🤣
-
It’s tangy, milky, slightly thick and nutty. The marriage of sour from the mango pomelo lime compote, sweetness from the mango pops, and rich floral flavour of the coconut is a good one.🥥
-
I love Kura’s play on textures here (similar to their La Vie En Rose), with the coconut crispy flakes providing a slightly resistant bite. 🍮
-
I only wish the sponge layer was more mousse like and airy though, it did come across a bit heavy.

Ig @goodfomood

Whilst the gelato was slightly more to the doughier side, I liked their experimentation of different flavours. 𝙎𝙢𝙖𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙎𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙪𝙡𝙤𝙤𝙨 (~$3.80) was reminiscent of a lighter version of our favourite lotus biscuit, though nothing particularly stunning. 🍪

Ig @goodfomood

With a very mild papaya Essence and an even milder burnt flavouring, I found the 𝘽𝙪𝙧𝙣𝙩 𝙋𝙖𝙥𝙖𝙮𝙖 (~$3.80) a tiring flavour to get by, and I struggled to finish this. 🍦
-
Another flavour leaving me feeling indifferent was the 𝘽𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙗𝙤𝙣 𝙑𝙖𝙣𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙖 (~$4.80), with the extremely temporal bourbon taste fizzling out as soon as I tasted it. 😭

Ig @goodfomood

Props to them for exploring a favourite local drink — the 𝙔𝙪𝙖𝙣 𝙔𝙖𝙣𝙜 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙚𝙨𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙠𝙚 (~$7.90) had a stronger mocha- like taste to it, though the tea and coffee flavours weren’t properly distinct.☕️

Ig @goodfomood

My go to place for cheesecake, or at least it used to be. I do remember the 𝙊𝙧𝙚𝙤 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙚𝙨𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙠𝙚 (~$6.90) being richer, whereas it just tasted pointlessly mild and heavy this time. Not that it was bad, it just wasn’t as good.🍰

Ig @goodfomood

Lowkey feel like a child getting away with something when I got the 𝙃𝙤𝙟𝙞𝙘𝙝𝙖 𝘽𝙪𝙧𝙣𝙩 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙚𝙨𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙠𝙚 (~$8) from Bakery Brera the day dessert shops had to close. So imagine my satisfaction when it was GOOD.🤩
-
With burnt cheesecakes popping up left right centre, I would put Brera’s differentiating factor in their cheesecake consistency. Dense and rich without coming off spongy, the Hojicha flavour had the chance to shine here. 🍰
-
‘Burn’ wise, the flavour wasn’t strong and it wasn’t your typical melt in your mouth burnt cheesecake, but like Hannah Montana says, nobody’s perfect ya. 😛

Being photogenic is one thing, but looking good in a paper box after sitting in the car is a whole new level. Beyoncé who?? I only know Merci Marcel’s 𝙁𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙝 𝙏𝙤𝙖𝙨𝙩 (~$17).
-
Aside from looking pretty damn amazing, it’s crazy fluffy and airy, and dare I say: almost feathery-like. It’s more toward the bready side than the eggy side, so it went well with the well blended raspberry purée. 🍞
-
Tbvh, it’s not the best French toast by itself ( @ronin.cafe PLEASE come back), but put it together with berries and the oh so heavenly light whipped cream and dAMNN she fine. 🤩
-
And for how good the whipped cream was— so good I considered keeping the leftovers.
