I heard so much about aqua S ever changing soft serve flavours especially the sea salt one that I decided to give it a try. The seasonal flavours are either Milo or Mango and at 5.40( price for regular) you could get a combination of 2 flavours. The sea salt flavour was milky and salty which complemented well with the sweet citrus mango flavour.

I was rather disappointed upon realising that their best selling avocado cake was sold out when I arrived there. Instead, I was recommended this as it's sour on its core which goes well with sweet creamy taste of the pistachio which is highly reminiscent of the actual nut. I will get my hands on the avocado cake one day because sugar thieves is definitely worth many repeat visits!

Being a dessert addict, there have been many a times when I chanced upon lemon cake that looks marvelous on the inside but often end up being too soft, sour or sweet. Finally, sugar thieves managed to turn around those disappointment as the icing was sour which complemented well with the soft and moist cake which was very mild in taste. Their many new creations make me wanna go back to try something new each week. Addiction much you say, go there for a bite and you will understand what I mean!

Disappointment did hit me initially upon realising they had only about 10 different flavours as I was expecting a wider selections. Then, my opinion took a turn for a change when I realised how well the matcha tea flavour mimicked my favourite drink. The matcha ice cream was creamy yet but it still contained the bittersweet taste that is remiscent of matcha tea leaves. The avocado flavour was pretty good except it was a little bland and got overshadowed by the matcha. Oh I forget to mention that they have new creations from time to time. I can't wait to see what they have on my next visit.

Sad to say, this one was a huge disappointment as I thought it had the most potential. The boba were hard as it was undercooked and the crepe cake tasted like any other. Even the floral tones of jasmine were not evidently present which made the entire cake taste like a vanilla cream crepe cake.

I was equally puzzled when everyone around me repeatedly mentioned the need to try the cream puff at Baristart since it looked well rather plain. Don't let looks deceive you, I was sold the minute I had my first bite and the thick rich gooey custard cream fillings oozed out. It was nice that the puff was crispy which complemented the Hokkaido milk cream well. Can foresee myself popping in frequently for my cream puff fix!

Given Barista coffee reputation for churning out excellent coffee, I decided to give their coffee and milk soft serve a go even though I am not a coffee drinker. That turned out to be a good choice as the coffee was pleasantly sweet and coupled with the use of Hokkaido milk; the end result a unforgettable soft serve that is creamy and rich! A must try and do hurry as they are only having it for a limited period of time!

The symmetrical nature of the tart appealed to me given how I am such a sucker for presentation. However, I sense trouble when I had to use an incredible amount of force just to get a small piece as the base was way too hard that chewing it too becomes difficult. In addition, the formula for the fillings was too dry and "gelat" as I found myself sipping on water multiple times. While there was a strong tint of Earl grey tones, it didn't go well together with the chocolate and hazelnut used.

At first try, I thought this was a simple chocolate mousse cake that is extremely rich and dense. I call it a pleasure in a bite but it gets even better once you get to the cherry fillings as the subtle tangy bits helps to neutralise the otherwise too sweet cake. Super affordable at 6.50 given its size.

This cute little pudding was the best way to end of the night as it soft creamy texture blended with the tangy berries helped to neutralise our taste buds. Every mouthful is such a delight that the burpplers made such that no a single ounce was left.

Decent cake which I couldn't find any flaws with but it also lacks the x factor which is unique to Nesuto in all its creations. The raspberry cream complemented the soft sponge cake well and it came together well as one!
