Rum and raisin here is one of the best I have had, though it can get a bit too rich at the end -- perhaps a lighter vanilla base would have balanced that out better, but it's nothing to make a big deal out of. Granny's Favourite is apparently one of their bestsellers and I can understand why -- it is a very nostalgic flavour -- think a mix of Milo/Horlicks with chocolatey crunchy bits (e.g. cookie dough) mixed in. Not an "elegant/classy"-type ice-cream flavour but enjoyable if you embrace the trip down memory lane!

First-off, I am in some sense obligated to love these flavours after having spent a good 10 minutes sampling almost everything as I couldn't decide which 4 flavours to bring home (thank you Burpple Beyond!) The ice-cream gal was so patient and helpful in giving me recommendations, and I never once felt judged for being a ponderer -- that's GREAT service!

Back to the food, I really enjoy both flavours because it stands out from most ice-cream flavours I have had. The parmesan ice-cream was just the right amount of sweet-salty, and the crackers added good textural variety. Hazelnut is quite a classic flavour but here, their rendition is extremely rich and nutty which reminded me of gelato.

One gripe, however, is that the ice-cream melts very quickly so you really have to run to a freezer once you've got your tubs.

The gelato here is EXTREMELY thick and creamy, I love it so much! The earl grey was very strong and the chocolate extremely rich and bitter. I really enjoyed these two complementary flavours. Such a pity that they will be closing at the end of the month!

This blew my mind!!! I have quite high expectations of pastries and I was very skeptical that a coffee shop bakery would be able to produce a good lemom meringue tart given the hot and humid environment they bake in. This proved me wrong in every way. The meringue was light and fluffy, complementing the tangy lemon curd perfectly.

The ambience here is really lovely - everything you saw on Instagram is true! It could be a good place to chill with a book when it is less crowded, such as on weekday evenings when I was there.

The matcha tea latte had a strong matcha taste, but I felt it could have been thicker to give the illusion of drinking a viscous matcha concentrate.... 😋 I personally felt it was a bit thin, but it is really a personal preference thing.

The Hojicha ice-cream was not one of the bestsellers, but I like hojicha and so decided to try it anyway. It was good, but a bit sweet, so I suspect quite a bit of sugar was added to it. I wouldn't say it is the best ice-cream I have had -- the honour still goes to Tsujiri for me -- but it is good enough for a casual, accessible post-meal treat.

Oreo milk was really just milk with crushed oreo bits at the bottom, and pearls. The pearls were hard and not very sweet so honestly they just got in the way of everything for me. I would have rather they skip the pearls and add more oreo bits instead, as the serving was quite paltry. 😥 But that aside, I enjoyed the full-bodied flavour of the fresh milk and the (few) oreo bits were a wonderful accompaniment.

Guka melaka milk tea was not really as thick as I expected. Rather thin actually, even for objective standards. But it depends on what you are looking for. Me, I was expecting a thick gula melaka syrup -- kind of like the brown sugar fresh milk that was all the rage a few months back. This isn't that, but if you like something more mild and moderate, this might be for you!

Apple Specaloos Ice-cream with streusel etc. and a shot of espresso at the side. The coffee went straight down to the sponge cake at the bottom so I didn't taste the coffee till the very end...it was vvveerrryyy strong. The ice-cream is rather light-tasting though, so it does balance out the strong coffee-soaked sponge cake. The streusel bits and other ancillary crumbs added to the overall texture, making it very fun to eat.

I didn't get to try this dessert, but my dining partners did comment that the matcha ice-cream was not very bitter-tasting and very creamy. If you don't usually enjoy the extreme bitterness of matcha, you may like this very much!

I didn't get to try this but this is their best-seller and my dining partners really enjoyed it!!! I hope to be able to try it for myself sometime in the future.

Unfortunately, despite asking for it to be heated, our cruffin came with a stone-cold matcha paste core.... The croissant base was buttery with crisp edges, and the matcha was thick and not overly sweet. Just a pity that it wasn't heated up properly (if at all) as it could get a bit stodgey.

I'm not sure what causes the blue colouration (butterfly pea maybe?) but the ice-cream tasted very much like vanilla. It was very creamy and thick - the kind I enjoy, but not everyone is a fan. I had the option of having sea salt sprinkled on top but regretted it because it was way too salty and too concentrated in a particular area! Would have been better if the sea salt was sprinkled from a taller height to allow it to spread more evenly across the ice-cream.

I really enjoyed the creamy (!!) tang of the acai berry mix, and the cacao nibs and granola added a good crunch. However, I would have liked nutritional information of each bowl to be displayed because a lot of the ingredients sound healthy but are really not. Having this knowledge would help customers make informed choices as to what to eat!! Just my two-cents, for a place that brands itself as serving "superfoods" with health benefits.
