The chocolate flavour wasn't anything much to rave about, though the extra chocolate toppings ๐ŸŒฐ made for quite a well-contrasting bitter crunch. Also, this time, the soft-serve was slightly thicker and more luscious, so it made for quite a satisfying mouthful ๐Ÿฆ.

๐Ÿ“ McDonald's ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ

.
As its name suggests, this dish is actually native to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ, where the owner is from, so you rarely actually see it in Singapore!
.
The signature dish featured a secret-recipe ๐Ÿค curry gravy which was packed with the distinct decadence of coconut milk ๐Ÿฅฅ, as well as a good kick of spice๐Ÿ”ฅ. There were also a good variety of ingredients, star of which was undoubtedly the silky-smooth CCF.

CCF Club in Maxwell Food Centre doesn't only serve your typical CCF, but they also have really interesting CCF types, such as this Special Laksa CCF (SGD4) ๐Ÿฅ˜.
.
I appreciated that their homemade laksa broth had the perfect spice level for me, and that in it were a multitude of ingredients, such as hard-boiled egg ๐Ÿณ and fish ngor hiang ๐ŸŸ. That said, though, it's their silky-smooth CCF that really stands out; they were thin and satisfyingly chewy like hor fun!

Even Singapore's favourite salted egg chips brand, IRVINS (@irvinsaltedegg ), has jumped on the bandwagon!
.
Presenting their first-ever Yam Lava Mooncake! At SGD40, you get a total of eight mooncakes in a box wrapped in a beautiful Japanese-style cloth ๐ŸŽ. There are two types of fillings to choose from: yam and mung bean. However, you cannot mix the two flavours within the same box. Fortunately, since I'm a big yam fan, that wasn't a problem for me.
.
To my delight, the yam paste was satisfyingly oozy and sweet โ˜บ. The distinct earthy flavours were very prominent too. As for the lava salted egg yolk ๐Ÿณ, while it wasn't as oozy or as much in amount, I felt the balance it provided was just right. Its savouriness managed to complement the overall sweetness of the yam.
.
The mooncake skin itself was made out of activated charcoal ๐Ÿ–ค, which gave it its shiny black hue. For one, though, I felt that it was tad bit too thick. Spent quite a while chewing on the skin, as a result. Nevertheless, I think this combination of yam and salted egg yolk is one that is done right ๐Ÿ‘. Definitely one of the more interesting mooncakes I've encountered this year, especially since I'm a salted egg fan as well!
