Our childhood candy recreated into an one-of-a kind dessert
.
The old school coffee tin-can housed crushed coffee ice mixed with coffee-infused whip, dulce de leche, coffee jelly, chocolate sponge and served with a side of “You Tiao”
.
As I dip the “You Tiao”; which I later discovered to be a cinnamon dusted churro into the “Kopiko”, I could taste the strong potent rush of bittersweet flavours from each component
.
A nice interesting take on the Kopiko coffee candy

Instead of the usual crispy Rojak ingredients like taupok (fried beancurd skin) and youtiao (deep fried chinese fritters), thick toast is used as a healthier crispy alternative
.
The shrimp paste sauce is really fragrant and packed full of flavour. It goes surprisingly well with the thick toast
.
Pineapples won’t be found in this dessert. But instead, chunks of red jambu, mango and strawberry are used. They somehow give an interesting new taste and texture
.
And also the addition of the vanilla ice-cream and peanut bits balance the overall sweetness and it won’t make me feel jelat

(Available in pints only; $20 per pint)

FatCat introduce their new seasonal special flavour for CNY 2019
.
Made from freshly toasted bak kwa or rou gan churned with some smoke
.
There were bits and pieces of toasted bak kwa in the ice-cream and they had a nice chewiness bite. And as I took each spoonful, I could taste the smoke which pleasantly goes off in a while
.
If only this flavour was not seasonal and available all year round, I would definitely buy this weekly

Singapore’s first pearl milk tea soft serve
.
Milk tea soft serve topped with soft and chewy pearls
.
The soft serve had a pleasant tea taste and fragrance to it. Personally, I wished it to be much more creamier since it’s a tad icy. The soft pearls gave a nice chewiness bite but kinda lack in sweetness. I would prefer them to be slightly sweeter

I could taste the robust flavour of the Assam tea each time I took a spoonful. The ice-cream was really smooth, almost creamy-buttery and also it had a nice aromatic tea fragrance
.
Probably one of the better tea flavoured ice-cream I had

Sunday brunch special
.
Mac and cheese burger buns with a beef patty, bacon jam and barbecue sauce. Served with a side of sweet potato fries
.
Mac and cheese buns had a nice crunch. The patty slathered in the bacon jam and barbecue sauce work well with the buns. The sweet potato fries gave a nice sweetness
.
However the downside was that the cheese taste was underwhelming and the beef patty needs a tad more seasoning
.

Traditional snack transformed into a sweet delight
.
Coconut ice-cream and durian puree wrapped in delicate popiah skin, topped with strips of jackfruit and crushed peanuts
.
The light and refreshing coconut ice-cream compliments the strong flavour of the durian. And surprisingly, they goes well together with the popiah skin
.
Lastly, the jackfruit strips and peanut bits give a nice chewiness bite and crunchiness to the overall dessert

Exclusive to Singapore
.
100% Hokkaido Raw milk soft serve topped with Japanese milk custard, dusted with brown sugar which is then torched right in front of you.
.
Initially I thought it will be quite sweet but nope. The raw milk soft serve was light yet rich in flavour. Somehow the Japanese custard adds a nice creaminess texture and compliments it. And lastly the creme brulee brings a nice crunch.

Paying homage to the traditional Ondeh Ondeh kueh
.
The Ondeh Ondeh lava cookie is pandan flavoured and filled with gula melaka. Nicely paired with Milo Dinosaur ice-cream and generous amount of fresh grated coconut
.
Perfect for this CNY weather

Options come with Thunder Tea Soup for an additional of $1.50
.
Fusion of traditional Yong Tau Foo, Thunder Tea Rice and a touch of Japanese as it comes in a rice bowl
.
I opt for the healthier brown rice. The Hakka-inspired Donburi comes with Hakka meatballs, Hakka yong tau foo, mani cai, long beans and seaweed
.
The Hakka yong tau foo had the 3 ticks of meatiness, crispiness and softness from the tofu. And lastly, the vegetables gave a good balance and crunchiness to the dish. And also contributes to my daily intake of 5 vegetables a day
.
Overall, this Hakka-inspired Donburi is here to stay for a long time

Newly launched by McDonald’s. Available at all Dessert kiosks
.
I could taste the stronger caramel flavour rather than the popcorn flavour since it’s rather non-existent
.
Nonetheless, a good effort by McDonald’s though
.

Creme brulee infused with ginger tea
.
The creme brulee has a nice layer of burnt caramel. As I crack open the burnt caramel to taste the teh halia creme brulee, I’m a bit disappointed as there is a very mild taste of ginger
.
Personally I wish the ginger taste to be stronger so as to balance the sweetness of the creme brulee
