For durian fans! I would have prefer some bitter sweetness (why doesn’t someone use durian with mandarin rinds). This is a sweetness of 9/10 on the sugar Richter scale. Pengat is creamy and further drizzled with gula Melaka. The cream is fragrant with durian, and layers of soft sponge are further laced with Durian Pengat and durian cream. The ice cream again is forgettable. It’s better to forego the ice cream.

But someone give a shoutout to the wonderful service staff at the Council!!

The red velvet is probably the healthiest part of the cake. Moist sweet sponge, with nutty speculoos ganache and sinfully sweet cream cheese. Makes the vanilla ice cream feel like a walk in the park. The ice cream was a cheap frothy brand that was almost like walls - quite a let down. Good textural mix but only for those with a sweet tooth!

Wonderful birthday cake from the Fabulous Juwanda of the Fabulous Baker Boy. The generous fresh berries were a delightful surprise. The mixture comforting Cashew and coconut oils, slightly tart berries and (peanut?), and the textural Almond and Date Crust was an absolute winner. Needs to be served very chilled to feel the nut oils melting in your mouth. A customized cake from a very talented baker.

Four cakes in one. The base, a butter layer with slight caramel notes, the second? The most intense with maple and caramel. The third starts to get a little milk chocolatey. The final top layer is the cocoa-laden prelude to the dark chocolate Valhorna buttercream. Separated by layers of hazelnut and almond praline crunch. Fabulous Ju the baker boy is definitely one of Singapore’s best cakery.

I dare you to call me out on a better burger. I love my burgers with textures and bite. Sandwiched between buttered and toasted brioche sesame bun are
1. A morale boosting fried egg
2. A thick and juicy ~200-250g beef patty, coarse mince
3. coated in a robust raclette with nutty and bitter depth of taste,
4. Girded with pickled vinegary beetroot
5. Thinly sliced gherkins
6. Crunchy Zoodles
7. Two grilled pineapple slices
8. Onion Jam hidden somewhere under the zoodles

Usually comes with wedges and coleslaw but there’s way more than enough carbs in there! I usually opt only for the vinegary freshly-made coleslaw as it clears the palate for extended enjoyment of the burger.

The best brownie around town with a texture of a fudgy flourless dark chocolate cake. Boldly 1.5 inches thick, perfectly crusted, with a thin layer of molten sauce in the middle. Further drizzled with dark chocolate sauce and a sprinkling of nuts (crushed Sunflower, pepita, peanuts, cashew, dried goji) . It’s sweet but it’s desserts. Only dressed up with condiments at dinner, plain at other times. Nicely warmed up for all the feels. Add $3 for 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream. I prefer mine seriously chocolate. Beats many $10 choc cakes hands down.

Well executed sticky date cake. Very moist, with the strong taste of dates settling at the base of the cake. Needs no caramel. Topped with whipped cream. The vanilla ice cream was forgettable - should have gone with the default coconut ice cream. Generously accompanied by crumble for a contrasting texture. Would have preferred some crushed walnuts for a a contrasting depth of taste.

Blueberry velvet cake with toasted coconut flakes. The blueberry were presweetened, unfortunately the sponge was very dry - a disappointment, and no berry taste, full of colouring. The only consolation was the dense cream cheese.

The marble latte uses both white and dark chocolate - that was a delight to taste the contrasting notes of the bitter dark chocolate against the simple sweetness of white. Having this with skim milk made the contrast more apparent.

This was part of a tea set deal for $10 - I upgraded my drink to large.

Perfect cappuccino from Toby’s Estate, while kiddo went after the scrumptious chocolate and banana croissant.

Triple choc, with whipped cream, fudge, and rainbow sprinkles. Don’t forget the choc chip cookie. For the kids (and adults to help finish!)

Generous slice of apple crumble. Was not overly sweet, chunky stewed cinnamon apples that still had very much bite, with raisins. Crust was beautifully crumbly and I swoped the usual vanilla for their salted caramel (whose sweetness complemented the crumble). Will order this again - possibly my favorite of their desserts!

Gorgeous fresh cream cake with sponge laced with Melaka. Sponge was dense and moist- a signature of Edith. They are not able to reduce the sugar as that will affect the texture of the sponge. Fresh adzuki beans used. My main complaint is that for a premium patisserie, they should be using authentic chendol made with coconut milk and natural pandan for coloring, instead of this electric green mass rubbish. Taste wise 4/5. Available in slices.
