I have been wanting to try this s'mores bar ($7.50) ever since I saw this on fluff's Instagram as it looks like a dessert lover's dream! While the aethestic of the bar is amazing, it gets a little hard to cut through the block of marshmallow (well... it being a chewy marshmallow) to get a bite of the biscuit base, chocolate and marshmallow all in a single bite. Technical difficulties aside, the chocolate was rich and the biscuit base helps to balance the sweetness of the marshmallow.

Will return to try more of their amazing their cupcakes!

Chocolate and hazelnut milkshake with salted caramel ice cream and lotus biscuits ($9) had a lovely presentation, and would certainly wow your friends. Unfortunately, it was a tad too sweet even for me (a self-professed lover of all sweet things) and the taste of hazelnut was lacking in this shake. Perhaps bumping up the cocoa and adding some chopped hazelnuts can clear the hazy flavours and give it an extra oomph?

Nonetheless, the service at working title was tip top and the atmosphere is relaxed and very friendly.

Popped by Matchaya for dessert with two friends as I had Burpple Beyond's 1-for-1 soft serves and beverages. We ordered the uji matcha and black sesame soft serves, and the hojicha and matcha chocolate drink for $10.80.

The soft serves were quite thick (so they didn't melt too quickly) and very flavourful. Uji matcha had an intense flavour of matcha with a hint of bitterness so it wasn't too sweet and the black sesame reminded me of tangyuan and I loved it as a person with a sweet tooth.

The roasted aroma of Hojicha permeated the whole drink and it was a good balance to wash down the sweetness of the soft serves. The matcha chocolate had a good rich flavour and you can taste both the cocoa and matcha which complemented each other to give an overall great beverage. As we were quite full, we walked around and the matcha chocolate became a bit diluted when the ice melted so I do recommend not holding on to it for too long!

It was a great first experience at Matchaya and definitely would recommend!
