📍Hai Tien Lo, Pan Pacific Singapore📍
💸 Four Treasures Snowskin Mooncakes (Box of four: Virgin Singapore sling, Mango passion, Matcha Black sesame, Gianduja Yuzu): $85.60
*we managed to get 25% early bird discount
...
With so many hotels and bakeries coming up with their own unique mooncake flavours this year, we were seriously spoilt for choices😍! In the end, we settled for Hai Tien Lo as their mooncake flavours intrigued us the most😁. Their packaging certainly was fancy, as opening it felt like opening a jewelry box and inside nestled 4 exquisite looking mooncakes🥮.

However, we were not that impressed by the taste of the mooncakes. We didn’t really enjoyed the snowskin itself, and the taste for some were simply too sweet for us😣. We thought the ones that fared better were the Gianduja Yuzu and Matcha Black Sesame🍵. We really loved the Gianduja chocolate, it was thick and slightly bitter🍫. However the yuzu core was waaay too tart, which threw the balance off a little. Matcha Black Sesame was pretty good too, but we wished the black sesame taste could be stronger😬. So... I guess we'll probably be exploring our options again for next year. Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!😃

📍Chateraise, Punggol Waterway Point📍
💸 Shine Muscat Souffle Cheesecake: $24
...
Chateraise's the place to go if we're craving for some affordable and quality Japanese desserts😋. Today, we tried their seasonal Shine Muscat Souffle Cheesecake🧀 which is only available till 30th September! We feel that as compared to other Japanese bakeries we've tried, their cheesecake is slightly sweeter and denser instead of being the soft and fluffy kind that we would've preferred🍰. The Shine Muscat were a nice addition as they were huge, sweet and juicy🍇. Overall, pretty good cake but we've had better. Will be looking forward to their other seasonal specials in the future.☺️

📍Yatkayan, Fortune Centre📍
💸 Black Sesame paste: $3.50
💸 Walnut paste: $4
...
Another round of traditional chinese desserts today👏! We love traditional chinese pastes and honestly, its hard to find places that do it well. Some end up too starchy, while others lack flavour. But we love the ones at yatkayan🥣! We got the sesame paste and walnut paste (our go-to) and they were smooth and tasted natural, unlike those factory made kind😂 Really appreciate all the effort that went into making these! ☺️

📍Yatkayan, Fortune Centre📍
💸 Yammy chendol: $5.50
💸 Almond & beancurd barley: $3.50
...
Yet another gem💎 tucked away in fortune centre, we always head to yatkayan for dessert after eating at A9, it's almost like a routine now! Had their famed chendol with orh nee which was really the best of both worlds👯. The orh nee paste was savoury and super smooth, which went well with the sweet and refreshing chendol🍧. The only downside was that the chendol melts super fast we couldn't slowly take our time to enjoy. Also ordered the almond and beancurd barley, a dessert we had often when we were young☺️. Apart from these, do give their homemade pastes a try as well! Overall, really recommend yatkayan for it's homely ambience and quality desserts✌️

📍Lee's Confectionery, 343 Jurong East Rd 31📍
💸 Mont
💸 Pomp
...
We all love a good quality and well executed dessert and that's exactly what Lee's Confectionery serves! Their desserts are so minimalistic looking and plated so beautifully that we almost couldn't bear to eat it.🥰Flavour wise, there's multiple layers and dimensions to the pastry that comes together as a whole beautifully. 🌰Mont, which features a puff pastry base with chestnut paste and chunks within the cream was super good. A wide range of textures could be enjoyed and the taste of the chestnut really came through, with even chunks of it to bite on. As for 🍧Pomp, we really enjoyed the grapefruit sorbet which mainly brought the refreshing notes to the dessert. The soufflé cheesecake and pomelo cream cheese nested within that thin crisp tart crust also tasted light and subtle.

We always have room for desserts especially for✨🍦BOP ice cream🍦✨Made a super impromptu trip down to BOP at 9.30pm and the queue was INSANE😲 Strongly recommend to get the Pistachio flavour as it was so nutty and fragrant, definitely one of the better ones (craving it as we’re typing this😭) and pairs really well with their thyme cones🌿

📍Plain Vanilla, Ion Orchard📍
💸 Cinnamon brown sugar brioche donut
...
A dessert place known for their delectable cupcakes🧁, Plain vanilla serves up a spread of other bakes as well which will definitely satisfy any dessert lover! Today, we decided to try their cinnamon brown sugar brioche donut filled with brown sugar custard and rolled in cinnamon sugar.😋 The donut itself was great being soft and airy!🍩 However, there was too much brown sugar custard and with it being so sweet, it got a bit jelat after a while and we had to remove some of the custard.😫 As we're not really a fan of really sweet food, maybe this could be a great dessert for someone with a sweet tooth? Though we'll probably stick to their good ol' trusty cupcakes next time, or try out some of those lovely looking loaf cakes instead☺️

📍Hvala, Chijmes📍
💸 Goma (Black Sesame) Cake: $9 ish (inclusive of service charge)
...
Lucky for us, we managed to snag a seat at Hvala right after lunch before the crowd came, no chill indeed😟 Been going to Hvala quite a bit since they were opened and got to say goma cake is the one thing that kept us going back for more - major fan of all things black sesame😍 Hmm but we feel that the standard has kinda dropped and for it’s price tag (sry but the service charge was quite a turn off as always) and how it gets so crowded during the weekends, we’ve been heading to alternative cafes where we can really chill and chat😌

📍JUJU, Singapore Botanic Gardens📍
💸 Acai & Houjicha bowl (Large): $11.50

Nestled in Botanic Gardens🌸, JUJU was a lifesaver in this sweltering heat by serving up some refreshing smoothie bowls!🥵 The flavours for the smoothie bowls are on a rotational basis (be sure to check their insta before heading down) and the flavours are acai and houjicha for this week. We got the mixed flavours and wow, really enjoyed the best of both worlds.😍 They were super generous with the portions, and the acai and houjicha had really intense flavours!! It also came with toppings like chia seed pudding, frozen blueberries, banana etc., but the acai and houjicha were sooooo good that we wouldn't mind just having that itself.💯 Glad that its healthy, which means that we can have more and still feel guilt-free hehe 🙆🎊 Noticed some other interesting flavours for their smoothie bowls while we were there, and we'll definitely be back to try them all😍

📍Nesuto Patisserie📍
💸 Konichiwa hōjicha (Whole cake, 16cm): $65 with free delivery

Ordered a houjicha flavoured cake from Nesuto for our birthday to pamper ourselves!!🎂 The Konichiwa hōjicha is their seasonal special, and we got it as we're such big fans of japanese flavoured desserts!😍

The cake really boasted an intense roasted houjicha flavour with the different layers of hōjicha ganache, hōjicha chantilly and hōjicha soufflé chiffon sponge.🍵 We loved that it was not too sweet, however it was a tad too creamy for us. Hence, we thought it tasted much better after scraping off the cream piped on top as it was for deco purposes and just tasted like plain whipping cream. But overall, we still enjoyed it very much!! 🤗

📍Donq Boulangerie, Takashimaya Department Store📍
💸 Uji matcha cream and chocolate: $3
...
We love matcha, but we love a lava matcha cream bread even more!!! And Donq Boulangerie's Uji matcha cream and chocolate just ticks all boxes in our checklist on how a matcha cream bread should be like.☑️📝 It has a matcha crumble on top which adds a nice crunchy texture, soft bread, and a matcha and chocolate filling is not overly sweet while retaining some bitter notes of matcha!🍵 We had to heat up the bread in order to achieve that lava filling, but oh boy, it was worth the extra effort!🔥 Hot, piping bread dipped in the warm, flowy filling....definitely a sinful but satisfying treat😍

💸 Triple Scoop: $11, additional charges for premium flavour
💸 Brownie: $7
...
First got introduced to Apiary by my friend years ago and I’m a convert!! They offer a good range of flavours, some of which are really unique. Here we have some of our usual favourites - Blue Milk, Hazelnut and Pistachio💕Would strongly recommend to get the ice cream with the warm brownie pan - perfect combination of cold ice cream coupled with oozy chocolatey goodness💯

Occasionally enjoys pigging out🤙🏻 Also on insta @munchkinggs
