The mudslide (apparently one of the signature items on the desserts menu). However, on the day of visit, they’d ran out of vanilla and chocolate ice cream. The only options were strawberry and salted caramel. We went for the salted caramel with fudge. Not sure if it was the flavour combination, but I thought it was rather unimpressive and nothing much to shout about. I tasted the fudge on its own, expecting it to be “wow” given it’s indicated as a signature dessert, I suppose it would still “wow” somewhat despite the missing vanilla ice cream. It turned out to taste rather similar to Mcdonald’s hot fudge. Was a tad disappointed!

Vanilla gelato, topped with red miso caramel, pecan pie crumbles and all things nice. What else can go wrong?

From a flavour profile and dish execution perspective, the dessert selections might be less of a ‘wow’ factor compared to the appetisers, small plates, large plates etc. But hey, the combination and taste profile is a win! It’s rare to find pecan pie sundaes on the menu - the last time I’ve seen one is probably at P.S cafe? Not too sure if my memory serves me right tho…
I love the ice cream - rich in vanilla flavour (before you mix it with the caramel miso!) and how the pecan pie bits added texture and nuttiness to my sweet ending!

Pandan Shake
Either a wow or a pandan-mic experience in your mouth if you’re not a fan of asian flavours in a shake. It’s a tad too much for the husband who found it too cloying after a while. You must, MUST be a lover of gula Melaka, pandan and shredded coconut bits. At some point, it was a tad too filling for me too. For a million calories going down your body, it must be really worth it - and also - something you really like! I appreciate how the taste of gula Melaka was prominent, the shredded coconut added loads of mouthfeel to an otherwise thicccc, cloying drink. But again, it could be too rich to finish by oneself! Also, this was extremely sweet. It didn’t taste as ‘premium’ or worth it as the shakes from five guys! Objectively speaking, this was my first from Shake Shack and it could well be a Jewel special that’s a tad too Asian and sweet for my tastebud.

Shack attack!
Ohhhh this is quite an alcoholic’s dream come true, except that it could be better harmonised in terms of the chocolatey layers. While I love the strong chocolatey goodness coming through from the ice cream, I don’t quite enjoy the dark chocolate squares that came along with it. Had I wanted chocolate squares, I would have eaten chocs. I don’t need them in my ice cream??!?! Also, they were dark chocolate squares which added unnecessary bitterness to my dessert ): The contrasting flavours and mouthfeel just didn’t quite gel, unfortunately.

Bailey's brownie
The last I had bailey's gelato was...... many years back and am glad to locate another gelato house that serves similar! The brownie bites certainly added some texture to the ice cream but in terms of taste, there really isn't anything to shout about and would prefer no brownies! It's kinda like, extra calories without incremental satisfaction on the tastebuds. This is a gourmet flavour, so top up +$2! Still pretty much value-worth if you're on Burpple Beyond (:

'Cos we utilized burpple beyond 1-1 deal and I selected the Bailey's brownie (gourmet), it made sense to order a serving of the Pistachio, the only other flavour in the gourmet category. I hesitated at the fiance's choice - insisting that pistachio gelato is quite common everywhere else, and he should really go for the Honey chrysanthemum (premium) that he enjoyed v much at B.O.P. Unsurprisingly this was yet another time he stuck to his choice and I'm so glad he did - the pistachio gelao was so, so, so incredily rich. In terms of creaminess, it's on par with the likes of Creamier/Venchi. In terms of quality and generosity, it surpassed both solely based on the fact that every other bite came with a generous crunch of WHOLE pistachio. Yes, you read that right. not pistachio pieces but pistachios in WHOLE - in the same way you see it when you shell off a pistachio kernel.

Nothing could go wrong with Venchi's gelato offerings! It's incredibly expensive but worth every penny, and made more worthwhile with Burpple's 1-1 deal ($10 for a regular cup -2 scoops, so essentially it means 4 scoops!) This time, we tried a new flavour - probably not that new on the menu anymore but it's definitely the first time i'm coming across this flavour.
Taste profile: Unique!
Matcha hint was just right but perhaps slightly masked by the citrusy hint from the lemon. Pieces of white chocolate added to the mouthfeel. As with all of Venchi's gelato that I've tried thus far, it's creamilicious and rich. Very yum!

First of its kind on our tiny red dot - we tried the signature lava cookie set. The fiancé decided on the chocolate molten lava cookie while I decided on the Blue Pea Hokkaido milk ice cream. It's a signature flavour, hence (+$1.50). In total, this set us back at $11. Worth it? YES.

The molten lava cookie was baked to perfection and served right on the skillet that it was baked on. To allow customers to enjoy the lil' theatrics of oozing lava, the ball of ice cream was placed on top of the lava cookie only when served - ie right at our table, before our eyes. Luscious chocolate lava oozed out of the molten cookie as the ball of blue pea ice-cream sits atop. woah.

Blue pea hokkaido ice cream was worth the premium. The blue pea taste was pronounced; not just a colouring effect or marketing gimmick! Natural, true and generous amount of blue pea went into the making of the ice cream and I'm so glad that money and calories wasnt wasted here!

Because... oreo cookies and cream is too mainstream and hence the Matcha cookies and cream on the menu definitely screams unique! Decided to give this a try and it's loadsa milky creaminess with matcha cookie bits (yay, no oreo likeness at all!). The matcha cookie bits certainly added some sort of texture to the smooth ice cream - similar to that of speculoos. If you're expecting the crunchy kinda oreo bits akin that of Mcflurry, you'll be kinda disappointed that they're a lot more chewy than crunchy. Defo worth a try. Great for kids or fans who prefer their ice cream without the slight bitterness from typical matcha

INTENSE and robust, this tasted like thiccc sesame paste in frozen form. This was churned to perfection too - extremely creamy, smooth and without any coarse sesame bits. Thsi was very much in line with the expectations of anything Japanese, crafted with nothing but a 'perfectionism'

Not one to have kiddy-flavoured ice cream but took a couple licks off my sis’ ice cream selections and wow! Praise-worthy horlicks ice cream and of course, speculoos wasn’t disappointing as well. The wow factor came from the horlicks - love the strong malty taste 😍

Top of cone: Pandan
'am constantly on the lookout for new flavours that I've yet tried and was rather apprehensive about B.O.P's pandan. As much as I enjoy Pandan chiffon, I'm not sure if 'd enjoy the intense pandan-coconuty flavours in my gelato. It turned out to be the flavour I enjoyed the most out of all 3 that I sampled that day - +White chrysanthemum and Sea salt hojicha. Pandan was refreshingly light (not sure how they did it!) and yet, fragrant. I'd expected an intense, overpowering flavour but was glad that it wasn't the case at all.

Bottom of cone: Sea salt Hojicha
Hms. Hojicha was intense, salt was mild but oddly not the kinda 'light' and 'clean'-tasting sea salt that i prefer. I think it might have been better to have the ice cream peppered with sea-salt rather than having salt incorporated into Hojicha!

In cup: White Chrysanthemum
Previously reviewed and refreshingly light as ever!

Salted caramel - as signature as it gets. Also a familiar flavour that needs no review

Tahitian Vanilla - looks beige/brown and of a ‘lighter’ taste compared to the Madagascan counterpart. Or perhaps it’s just my bias towards Madagascan vanilla. Nevertheless, this was good too!!

Ispahan - the highly of today’s visit! Rosy much, tastes a lil’ like Bandung. Love the floral notes and how it’s pretty much light on the palate. Perfect after a heavy dinner!

Waffle bowl - not sure if intended that way but the colour was a shade darker than the usual brown of typical waffle cones. I took a quick scan - everyone’s waffle bowl was of the same shade. Not sure if it’s a batch issue or intended to be so. The waffle bowl was super crispy and thankfully no burnt smell!

Interesting flavours but overpriced gelato
his shop specializes in gelato flavours that resemble the botanical, herbally offerings of Birds of Paradise. However, quality pales from that of B.O.P's. At the time of visit, there were a couple of gelato flavours whose texture were not 'the most ideal' - slightly melted and 'wet'. The lavender cone (+$1.20) lacked any hint of lavender. It tasted like any other plain flavoured cone. Many of the flavours fall into the category of gourmet/alcoholic - costing up to an exorbitant total of $13/double scoop. In my view, it's daylight robbery.

My chubby cheeks speak of my love in uncovering new bites & savouring ‘em all!
