Yum! Mochi donut was served hot and was very pleasantly chewy, it’s not sweet on its own so it complements the other components. The cookie biscuit that was the base of the softserve was good too, crunchy and sweet/buttery. Softserve was p smooth and creamy, cookie butter flavour was distinct and honestly much less sweet than typical speculoos-flavoured desserts. It’s served with some granola (that had freeze dried raspberry bits) and salted caramel sauce!

Overall a p solid dessert, each component was good and came together nicely, not too sweet as a whole. The mochi donut is v filling so thankfully we shared this between 3! The only thing is that it would have been better if served on a plate - having it in the bowl meant that the donut was soaked in the softserve ‘soup’ when it melted.

Yum!! I like kaze kaze bc it’s especially crunchy, with all those almonds on top, and it feels more resilient to getting soggy. But if you like beard papa for the cream you’re better off with the regular puffs, as the filling to crust ratio is quite low in the kaze kaze.

The seasonal Japanese chestnut cream is not super distinctly chestnut (bc chestnut itself has a v mild flavour), so it’s good because they didn’t put too much sugar or artificial flavouring. I liked the subtle roasty taste it had! Would repurchase the puff version to try out the difference~

This set comes with a 2 scones (+ butter, homemade strawberry preserve, and fresh cream) 2 finger sandwiches (one cheese; one cucumber), a butter cake, a a pot of tea. The scones were good - crunchy and craggly on the outside, insides were quite moist without being wet/gummy, not dry/floury at all. The crumb was quite cake-like. I particularly enjoyed the crunchy outers! We liked it best when paired with fresh cream + jam. The finger sandwiches were average, it’s simple and can be assembled at home. The butter cake was alright - I don’t usually go for such cakes, but it’s not horrible. It had a very classic, old-skool taste (buttery? greasy? but not very strongly-flavoured) with a moist and crumbly texture. Just that it was quite oily.

Fillings are all vv smooth and silky and light! Dark choc is nice and bittersweet but q rich and heaty. Sesame was v nice, nutty and a bit more salty and lighter than a typical bssm paste. Both were good but the sesame one was more outstanding to me! I did wish the tart crust was a little more buttery and crunchy, but it wasn’t soggy even after a few days, and was thin and easy to cut. Looking forward to trying other flavours!

This type of dessert is totally up my alley, and it did satisfy! A warm tart which wasn’t too sweet (the highest praise for desserts in SG 🤪) - enjoyed the juicy cubes of pear within, paired with the crunchy almonds and buttery crumble. The tart base was reasonably crunchy, but it’s not the snappy type so it was pretty easy to cut. The lavender ice cream had a similar texture to the fior di latte ice cream, and I liked how fragrant it was without tasting too overwhelming / soapy!

I’m not usually a cheesecake person, but this was good! Creamy but not too heavy, we liked the flavour too. Would be better if the cookie crust was crunchy! The homemade fior di latte ice cream was light, but not too strongly milky. The ice cream wasn’t v creamy, which worked well as the cheesecake provides the creaminess, but on it’s own it could be creamier, this was so light it almost tasted like a sorbet.

Soft, moist and sweet - the gooey but not mushy bnn filling brought a natural sweetness, plus crunchy walnuts! One of favourite flavours.

I didn’t have this but when it was cut into, the chocolate oozed out nicely.

The tiramisu was quite pleasant, with coffee & kahlua-soaked finger biscuits and fluffy mascarpone. I love tiramisu and this was rather decent.

This was unfortunately rather disappointing. The choux pastry tasted rather flat and stale, was soggy. Vanilla ice cream was quite generic.

Tried the mochi waffles previously and really enjoyed it - they put rice flour (I think) in their batter so it gives the waffle this nice stretchy chew, with a crisp exterior. However, it wasn’t particularly impressive this time as the exterior was crisp only at the very edges. But the chewiness was still enjoyable. You get to choose the froyo flavour, we chose peach mango, my fav sogurt flavour hands down! It’s not tooo artificial tasting, with a nice sour yogurt flavour that is v refreshing.

The toppings were supposed to be sesame brittle and sesame puff sticks w lotus crumble and speculoos drizzle, but we got fresh strawbs & bananas (yay!) and Oreo crumble (nay) instead - while I like the fresh fruit, it was a little disappointing that we didn’t get to try the sesame toppings + they didn’t even let us know that they will be replacing the toppings.

The brownies were vvv rich, too rich and sweet for us :/ For the brownie itself (disregarding the filling), there was this underlying cocoa taste that I usually associate with cheap brownies LOL idk whether I’m nitpicking or what but that’s what I felt. The hojicha could have been more bitter, we preferred the salted dark choc one which had a nice and bittersweet dark choc filling, with the saltiness adding a nice touch.

Bundt is also rich but somehow it doesn’t feel as cloying. I prefer bundt’s brownies (certain flavours) to what I tried from whiskdom!
