Sliced glazed apples on apple compote.

The crust looks different from their usual tart so I was excited but the crust was abit soggy (maybe from the glaze) and not as crisp as their usual tart.

Basically lots of sliced glazed apples on a thin layer of compote with soggy crust. Quite sweet and a little tart but flavour wise it was not outstanding and not worth the $11 for me.

8 warabi mochi coated with kinako powder and matcha powder in a cup.

Prefer the matcha based warabi mochi to brown sugar but the difference is quite subtle anyway. However, each piece is only barely coated with powder. Unlikely to repurchase based on this even if the texture of their warabi mochi is not bad - QQ, not too firm, not slimy.

The last time I bought it (long ago), they were more generous with the powder

Dark chocolate filling with morello cherries, rye chocolate crust.

It is really affordable at $6.50 for a rather large slice. The crust is okay - not bad but not great. What I enjoy is that dark chocolate filling. It is rich, chocolately and the cherries (seem to be infused/blended in the filling) bring a tartness that makes it so easy for one to finish a slice that would otherwise have been too cloying with just the chocolate alone.

I told myself I was going to only eat half but end up finishing it after lunch and coffee. 😐

My favourite tart of theirs so far in 2020.

Caramel Korean Yellow Pine Nuts with Muhwadam Green Fig Jam. I am partial to their nut tarts and all (that I’ve tried) have been on point.

The tart on the whole is slightly sweet but the crunchy, nutty, generous amount of pine nuts and the fig jam (and I thought i tasted frangipane?) along with the buttery, crisp tart shell is just soo moreish

I’m already thinking about getting this again.

Didn’t order this for the longest time because it just seem so uninteresting and this is much more expensive than the other cheese tarts around. And I was right 😂

The baked cheese filling is not that cheesy in taste. The tart is really quite monotonous in both taste and texture compared to their other tarts. This ranks right at the bottom amongst all the Cheryl Koh tarts that I’ve tried (and I have tried lots)

Tarts filled with rich, dense dark chocolate ganache for dark chocoholics.

My favourite is the 𝗦𝗲𝗮 𝘀𝗮𝗹𝘁 𝗱𝗮𝗿𝗸 𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗲 which has a crisp and buttery (blonde) tart base, that provides a nice contrast in both taste and texture to the chocolate ganache filling. Plus, the sea salt+dark chocolate combi just works.

The rest has a chocolate tart base that is softer than I’d have liked. I also enjoyed the 𝗣𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗼 with its nutty taste together with the ganache. The 𝗦𝗶𝗴𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝟳𝟮% 𝗱𝗮𝗿𝗸 𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗲 has a more 1 dimensional taste compared to its sea salt chocolate tart cousin. 𝗛𝗮𝘇𝗲𝗹𝗻𝘂𝘁 actually taste like kinder bueno, is sweeter, and my least favourite.

Worth a try if you are a dark chocoholic but I wouldn’t travel all the way for it.

Rosemary panna cotta, ricotta ice cream, figs, candied pecan crumbs and feuilletine.

Get abit of each element on your spoon in every mouthful. You will taste herby vanilla jiggly panna cotta, sweet figs, slightly savoury ice cream together with nutty, buttery crunch.

You do not want to share this.

Their donuts are not oily, really fluffy and chewy - think old school bakery donuts but chewier.

𝗣𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗼 comes with intense, nutty, really pistachio-ey filling while the 𝗟𝗶𝗺𝗼𝗻𝗲 is filled with a sweet rather than tart lemon curd. The limone is too sweet for me and while the pistachio is slightly sweet (although not as sweet as limone), I enjoy the flavour.

I still prefer their donuts with hole (which is bigger with more of that dough and more worthwhile😂) ie cream cheese and chocolate flavour that is also not as sweet.

In order of preference:

1. Kopi Kaya Peanut Butter: Coffee chiffon cake with kaya and homemade peanut butter. The taste of the PB dominates actually, but I am a PB fan so this is my favourite of the lot. The coffee chiffon is just alright.

2. Sesame Yuzu: Sesame chiffon with yuzu curd. The sesame chiffon taste good with the tangy yuzu curd.

3. Pulut Hitam: Panda chiffon with pulut hitam coated with coconut buttercream. I like the pulut hitam - it is not sweet. Is the pandan chiffon better than eg prima deli’s though? I don’t think so.

Their chiffon cakes are really subtle in taste, the texture of the cakes are alright - didn’t wow me. What makes the cakes special are actually the fillings in between. However, I am not a fan of buttercream in general so that’s one element that does nothing for me.

Meh - will not buy again

Moist white desiccated coconut (without gula melaka) wrapped with soft panda crepe.

I like that it is not too sweet and you can really taste the coconut. I also enjoy that the skin is really soft. The best kueh dardar I’ve had.

However, I find the rest of their kuehs are just meh i.e. kueh kosui, bingka ubi, kueh ambon.

The yam paste is not sweet (definitely much less sweeter than your orh nee dessert) and I think I can eat 2 tarts in one go. It’s not gelat at all. The shortcrust pastry is buttery and goes very well with the filling.

Sweet potato skin muah chee encases the same yam paste filling as the tart and is coated with peanuts (without sugar). The muah chee is very soft, chewy and huge with the skin on the thick side.

I prefer the tart because the pastry and orh nee goes so well together. The taste of the orh nee is not as prominent in the muah chee with the peanuts and sweet potato skin also fighting for dominance.

Caramel mousse, cashew chantilly cream, feuilletine.

The feuilletine is at the bottom, followed by a layer of chantilly cream, caramel mousse (taste like milk chocolate mousse to me though) and caramel in the middle of the dome. I love the feuilletine layer as it provides a nice crunch and contrast to all the soft elements.

Their “nuts tarts” are always well done and this is no exception. This is my second time buying this tart and I like it as much as the first time.
