Small cup 3oz ($4)

This was a Friday (13 Sep) special flavour
.
Collaboration with Gong Cha
.
Madagascar vanilla crème anglaise ice-cream layered with oolong tea sauce and handmade konnyaku rose jelly
.
*Madagscar vanilla beans are used for this frozen crème anglaise
.
I could taste the rich creamy vanilla flavour. The oolong tea sauce compliments the vanilla flavour. And the rose jellies added nice floral note
.
Overall it left me feeling refreshed
.
*Perfect for this haze weather

SINGAPORE Exclusive
.
Collaboration between Pocky Singapore and local retro-ambience cafe chain Ya Kun
.
Favourite local Singapore Kopi O made into iconic Pocky stick
.
I was greeted by a strong coffee aroma when I open the packet
.
Tastewise, the kopi flavour is rather distinctive but left me with a bitter aftertaste
.
Nonetheless, a good try though

SINGAPORE Exclusive
.
Collaboration between Pocky Singapore and local retro-ambience cafe chain Ya Kun
.
Favourite local Singapore Kaya Toast made into iconic Pocky stick
.
After taking a few sticks, I couldn’t taste the familiar eggy, coconuty jam notes
.
But instead I could taste the artificial coconut milk and pandan flavour
.
A good try though

Hainanese Chicken Rice with a healthy Western twist
.
A medley of cauliflower rice, quinoa, poached chicken slices, achar, cherry tomatoes, chicken skin crisp and ginger chili dressing
.
The ginger chili dressing was the star of the dish
.
It was nice and creamy. And it managed to bring back the familiar ginger chili flavour I had in my Hainanese chicken rice
.
However the downside was that the poached skin slices have a fairly amount of gelatinous bits and were a miserably small portion
.
And The chicken skin crispy were a bit soggy though
.
Not worth the price though but kudos for the attempt

.
Kaya toast with a modern twist
.
Two slices of toast layered with kaya and D24 durian paste
.
The kaya was sweet whereas the D24 durian paste was creamery and had a slight bitterness
.
Although the durian flavour slightly overpower the kaya but as I took few bites along the way, both flavours managed to compliment each other

Bak Ku Teh with a fusion twist
.
Pork ribs, dang gui, pepper, garlic and a variety of other herbs constitute the simmered broth whereas the pork filling remains the same
.
As I bite into the thin skin, I got a burst of herbal flavour which pairs nicely with the tender pork filling

Available for a limited period only
.
Laksa with a French take
.
Homemade rempah paste is spread on baugette, topped with fresh prawns, fish cake and tau pok, folded with coconut béchamel, lastly baked with sliced eggs and cheddar cheese and sprinkled with fresh laksa leaves
.
I opt to toast the laksa toast.
.
Overall, it is an interesting take but I would prefer it would be tasted better if there were whole prawns instead of bits and pieces of prawn

Back for a limited period
.
($2 each, $3.60/pair)
.
Pandan essence was added so as to represent the green from the banana leaves. Most traditional nasi lemak were being wrapped inside them to give that extra aroma
.
The flaky and buttery pastry was filled with coconut rice, ikan bilis, peanuts, egg and sambal chilli
.
*Best eaten when it’s piping hot
.
The crispy ikan bilis and crunchy peanuts were slicked in sambal chili. To me, the star was the sambal chili. It was fragrant and had a robust combination of both sweet and spicy

.
Herbal duck with a fusion twist
.
The duck confit was succulent. Personally I liked the herbal flavor of the sauce. It’s nicely paired and compliments the risotto and also the addition of fried shallots provides a nice crunch to the dish
