Nevertheless, the other bakes I got from them more than made up for it. I particularly enjoyed the 𝐆𝐚𝐫𝐥𝐢𝐜 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 𝐁𝐨𝐦𝐛 ($5) and 𝐎𝐫𝐡 𝐍𝐞𝐞 𝐂𝐫𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐂𝐮𝐛𝐞 ($6). Both were stuffed generously with fillings and I enjoyed them a lot! Definitely one of my best buys and I would repurchase again. Only gripe would be that the price is pretty steep for its size.

Ho ho ho! As it inches closer to Christmas, we’re busy feasting over here making sure we get our hands on all the limited edition festive goodies available!

And this is no exception, we had the 𝐗𝐦𝐚𝐬 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐞 ($9.50) recently from Keong Saik Bakery! A unique combination featuring caramelised bananas and banana cake in the middle, finished off with hojicha mousse and hojicha whipped ganache. Although it seemed like an exquisite piece, I felt like the flavours didn’t complement each other as much as I had hoped. The hojicha taste was barely distinct, and made for an odd pairing with the bananas. I ended up enjoying it deconstructed, rather than as a whole cake.

Ordered their pastries via my estate’s groupbuy just a few days back! Can I just say, I’ve really become an auntie since all these group buys started popping up

Anyway, I had their 𝐇𝐨𝐣𝐢𝐜𝐡𝐚 𝐁𝐚𝐬𝐪𝐮𝐞 𝐁𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐭 𝐂𝐡𝐞𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐤𝐞 ($8.80), 𝐄𝐚𝐫𝐥 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐲 𝐂𝐡𝐨𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐁𝐚𝐬𝐪𝐮𝐞 𝐁𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐭 𝐂𝐡𝐞𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐤𝐞 ($9.40), and their 𝐌𝐚𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐚 𝐂𝐫𝐮𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐧 ($6.30). The burnt cheesecakes were really good in terms of texture and had that perfect oozy texture. (I stored mine in the fridge and left it out at room temperature for a bit before eating). The Hojicha was a tad bit too sweet for me however, and I very much preferred the earl grey chocolate which was surprising! Overall, they were really good cheesecakes albeit the slightly high price.

The cruffin on the other hand was a let-down. The pastry weirdly reminded me very much of cardboard. Although it was stuffed generously with the matcha filling (which helped to compensate for the lack of taste!), I ended up throwing it away after a few bites.

Goodwood Park is known for their iconic durian desserts, and I went for just that last month! They were having a Mao Shan Wang and D24 Durian Dessert buffet at Coffee Lounge, and it made for a decadent treat. Yes, everything on this plate is durian flavoured!

My favourites at the buffet were the 𝐌𝐒𝐖 𝐌𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐬𝐞 𝐂𝐚𝐤𝐞, 𝐌𝐒𝐖 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐩𝐞 as well as the 𝐃𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐏𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐮𝐭 𝐓𝐚𝐫𝐭! The cake was light and fluffy, paired generously with the durian frosting. The crepe likewise was stuffed full of the durian filling, and was so shiok to eat! At some point, I felt like I was just eating durian pengat nonstop because of the filling to skin ratio. Lastly, the tart was a surprising combination that I loved! It reminded me of the traditional peanut candies that we used to eat during Chinese New Year, and went surprisingly well with the durian.

Because this was my first meal of the day, it got undoubtedly jelat after awhile. They do offer the dessert buffet a-la-carte but also offer pairings with their mains. Thankfully, I opted for the 3-course Degustation Menu ($62++ per person). Swipe to see the mains I had! Take note the serving sizes are really small but it helps to balance out the desserts.

We ordered the waffles + 1 scoop of ice cream (Hazelnut Cookie Dough) using Burpple Beyond. Take note all the items on the menu are a la carte meaning we got the scoop of ice cream free and paid for the waffle ($4.80)! Really affordable. Ice cream texture was also sticky and chewy, the way I like it! Only thing is the shop is understaffed and we waited around 20 min to order and for the food to come 😌

This is my absolute favourite gelato shop, and I’m so happy that they’re on #BurppleBeyond now! We paid $10 for two Regular gelatos (2 scoops each), essentially making that $2.50/scoop?! 🤩 Insanely creamy with intense flavours, this is a must-have when in town!

Great start to the day with these cupcakes from Plain Vanilla Ion! They sell out really early even on a weekday so its advisable to call them to reserve your bakes before heading down.

I had the 𝐕𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐚 𝐁𝐞𝐚𝐧, 𝐂𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐨𝐧 𝐁𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐒𝐮𝐠𝐚𝐫, 𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐲 𝐖𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐨𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞, and 𝐋𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐄𝐚𝐫𝐥 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐲.

The 𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐲 𝐖𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐨𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞 was one of the flavours I enjoyed. Stuffed with fresh strawberry chunks, it is best advised to be consumed on the day itself. Definitely an interesting and unique flavour for a cupcake!

Overall, I had much higher expectations for their cupcakes given the raving reviews, but I personally prefer a buttercream for frosting on cupcakes as opposed to the icing sugar they used, which imo was powdery and didn’t go well with the cupcake. However, the cupcake was still moist even after a few days, so that was impressive!

The first flavour I got was the 𝐂𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐦𝐛𝐢𝐚𝐧 𝐂𝐨𝐥𝐝 𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐰 & 𝐂𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐢𝐞 𝐁𝐮𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐁𝐢𝐭𝐬, which is the MUST-HAVE flavour over at Gelato Labo if you’re an avid coffee fan. With a smooth coffee taste, its well rounded out by bits of cookie butter bits. Even my partner who doesn’t drink coffee loved this flavour! No wonder it was one of their bestsellers. 😍

The next flavour I had was the 𝐍𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐥 𝐎𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞 & 𝐖𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐲𝐬𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦𝐮𝐦. A stark contrast from the bitter notes of the cold brew, this boasted a light, refreshing taste. The orange was slightly more overpowering than the chrysanthemum, but the ice cream overall still had a creamy texture (which I appreciated as most fruity flavours tend to be more icy sorbet)!

we recently checked out @thejujubar at Botanic Gardens, and boy did it live up to it’s amazing reviews!

pictured here is the 𝐃𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐨𝐧𝐟𝐫𝐮𝐢𝐭 𝐉𝐮𝐣𝐮 𝐁𝐨𝐰𝐥 in Regular, drizzled with decadent dark chocolate. although slightly pricey at $8.50, the generous serving more than made up for it 😍

it came with toppings like fruits, chia seed pudding, as well as cacao nibs. however, if we did have to comment, some of the toppings did seem a tad bit frozen, which we would have preferred to be fresher. overall, a refreshing treat for a hot day! 😋

📍monarchs & milkweed gelato, north bridge road

we had the: lavender, brown butter sage & ispahan flavours, all refreshing enough for a hot Sunday afternoon 🕊

the 𝐋𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫 was delicately flavored with a whiff of lavender that became more pronounced as it melted in your mouth! as someone who loves the lavender scent in general, I loved it!

𝐁𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐁𝐮𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐒𝐚𝐠𝐞 was definitely interesting, I’ve had it in cookie form but not ice cream before. tasted oddly like cookie butter, but definitely pleasing to the tastebuds.

& last but not least, 𝐈𝐬𝐩𝐚𝐡𝐚𝐧 was one of our favourites as well! it was delightfully sweet yet light and we can see why it’s one of their bestselling flavours!

verdict: 8/10! would definitely return again to try other flavours!

Redeemed the 1 for 1 gelato + coffee and it was vvv worth it. The gelato was good, I had the durian flavor!

reviewing food at @thebutterbuds on IG! ❤️
