The two must-trys and probably what differentiates this place from the ones at Bugis street are the double layer milk pudding and signature ginger milk pudding. A Chinese version of Creme Brulee, the hot double layer milk pudding was silky and comforting minus the crunchy caramelised layer. Their signature ginger milk pudding was freshly done on the spot as the milk was poured in front you and the curd slowly formed under the steam. The texture was similar to tau huay and the gingery taste wasn't too overpowering. Perfect if you are looking for a warm and nutritious dessert.

Presented as a more sophiscated version, the lemon pie ($12) was basically a deconstructed lemon meringue pie. The lemon curd had a nice balance of sweetness and sourness to it with an added texture and crunch from the biscuit crumble. While I felt that the meringue was a tad too sweet for me, pairing it with a latte ($6) that was smooth and full-bodied with a dark roast, it was a perfect ending to my meal.

With a buttery crust, the tart was laced with a crumbly topping and the slightly jammy pear filling was light in both its flavour and sweetness. It was served with champagne vanilla ice-cream that had a unique taste to it. A light dessert to have after a hearty main.

Five different flavours in a box to satisfy any taste buds and sweet tooth. Highly recommend the tangy yuzu meringue tart, and the intensely rich chocolate truffle tart. 🥰

The variety selection of these large cookies on display were too appealing to just walk pass. Rich and dense with a right amount of sweetness, these chunky cookies were absolutely sinful but delicious with a chewy texture. It was chocolate heaven as the Choco Bueno with Marshmallow ($5.20) was made with dark chocolate with choco oozing out of it; while the Cookies n Creme Cheesecake ($5.80) had a nice balance of sweet and salty to it.

The Matcha White Chocolate ($7) had an intense shade of green that could not be ignored and it did not disappoint. It was authentic matcha overload with a right amount of sweetness and bitterness; and the cake was moist and not too dense. The Orh Nee ($8) gave artisanal twist to the traditional teochew dessert. Looking pretty in lilac colour, I could taste the layers and texture from the mixture of yam chunks and gingko "puree"; and the coconut shavings on top of the cream added a local touch. Not exactly "orh nee" as it was missing the fragrance of the shallots but overall it was delicate, light and not too sweet. I could see why this is the best-selling item in Luna. 🍰

A class of semi-frozen desserts, semifreddo is a halfway between ice-cream and mousse. It was akin to a frozen nutella with a richness of ice cream and the texture of frozen mousse. The hazelnut taste was rich with the bitterness of the dark chocolate, and the added crunch from the crushed biscuits and chopped hazelnuts. It was cold chocolatey heaven! 😋

Creamy, light and fluffy, this jarred tiramisu had a Japanese twist to it with the ladyfingers layered with light and airy matcha-infused mascarpone custard filling. The matcha was not bad with a nice sweetness to it but the original (soaked in alcohol) is still the best!

Double the scoop. Double the happiness. The rectangular butter waffle was light and had a crisp outer layer. Pairing it with the valrhona guanaja and salted gula melaka ice-cream, it was an indulgent treat after a stressful day. The chocolate ice cream was much loves as it had a bitter-sweet balance with all the chocolatey taste to it. 😍🧇🍨🍫

Chocolate and banana make a good team. The chocolate was rich and the banana flavour wasn't too strong that it overwhelms, while the crunch from the sesame brittles gave the dessert a nice added texture. Overall a delectable combination of chocolate and banana that lifts a frown into a smile, and not forgetting the cool sweet vanilla ice-cream. 😊

Studded with chocolate, the classic chocolate chip cookie is lightly crunchy and chewy with a gooey chocolate filling. Not overwhelmingly sweet and an absolutely oozing happy treat! 😁

New flavour from Yole which is much loves. I love the creamy and tangy blend between yogurt and ice cream. Refreshing, sourish-sweet and so good that it is best to have it without any additional sauce or toppings (and added calories). 😋

Food is an adventure in itself. More to explore. Even more to share.
