I was excited to try this but... it completely didn’t suit my palate. It was way too cheesy, and too little black sesame flavour. I wished the sesame flavour was stronger. The base was also a sesame biscuit base, which was weird, I’d rather a normal cookie base. It didn’t really give the melt in your mouth crunch. I understand that some people prefer the overwhelming cheesy texture in cheesecakes, so if that’s what you like this cake with a hint of black sesame is for you.

$4.20 each for Hojicha and Ondeh Ondeh because they were Premium Flavours, usually $3.20 for normal flavours. $3.50 for a single square of waffle.
New gelato shop in the heartlands of Bedok, while seemingly isolated, is actually pretty near other famous ice cream parlours such as hay gelato and fatcat.
Hojicha flavour was really good. Thick and creamy with obvious Hojicha flavour. The Ondeh ondeh didn’t make the cut for me, more coconut and less gula Melaka, when the ideal would always be a balance. The tiny bits of coconut flakes within the ice cream likewise distracted me from the flavour itself, making the scoop seem more coconut-y flavour than anything else.
Selling a single square of waffle is weird (to me), and for $3.50 is seriously pricey. I wasn’t a big fan of the waffle, not only for its price, but because it wasn’t as soft as fluffy as I desired it to be. Hopefully they come out w/ a new recipe or perfect the timing in the weeks to come!
Nonetheless, I am excited to try more flavours of ice cream in this quaint cafe.

Cheesecake was thick and creamy. Making a wild Guess but the base of the cheesecake seemed to be brownie fudge. While I personally like a cookie/biscuit base cheesecake any day, that’s because a brownie base like this makes the cake too sweet. I must give credit to how the cheesecake portion itself definitely takes the cake though. There’s a certain quality and texture to it. However for $8.50, this rather small piece of cake may be too hard on the wallet for an afternoon tea time.

Earl grey & Mint Cookies flavour that came with a side of maple syrup (we had a choice of salted caramel and chocolate as well).
The earl grey was light to taste, making it a decent scoop of dessert if you are afraid that you might feel too full from your last meal.
The mint was refreshing, and I loved how it was cookies and not chocolate chips inside. It’s definitely a way better experience with small bits of cookies well infused in a scoop of mint ice cream. The mint ice cream did not have the toothpaste like taste as well - you can taste real freshness in it.
Texture of the Belgium waffles were decently crispy and fluffy, but nothing too amazing about. I would love to try other desserts this shop has to offer, however, in terms of ice cream, they have a very limited range of flavours.

Thought that this was just a tad slightly better than the red ruby, but still nothing fantastic - and I only have such a judgement because of the fact that there were more ingredients in it. I did like the small tapioca balls which tasted like jackfruit to me, but other than that, pretty meh.

Service at this restaurant struck me as really bad because the dessert was served first, even though it was evident that we were having a proper meal there having ordered a lot of main dishes. We all thought it was common sensical and normal enough for the staff to know that dessert should be served last. Nonetheless, if this sentiment is not established, I would’ve expected the staff to at least ask upon ordering if desserts should be served now or last. And we didn’t get such questions. So imagine the horror when the desserts were served first, when we expected ourselves to eat our mains first. What was horrible was that it didn’t make sense to the staff that their actions were kinda unorthodox, and instead of apologising they just said they were gonna put it in the fridge for us until it can be served. I don’t know how unsanitary it would be.. but I mean we didn’t want to push for anything else so we just accepted. But I felt like I didn’t like this idea, and the fact that everything just didn’t make sense to me.
Alas, when the dessert came some of the ice was melted and it wasn’t even nice at all. It was watery and tasteless.

I liked this a lot. A strong, creamy vanilla taste that is light on the palate with subtle tones of Himalayan salt, adding an additional layer of flavour to what it may be seen as a boring scoop of vanilla ice cream. Tickles your tastebuds and gives you a new experience. Take it as like ‘salted vanilla’.😂 would come back for it. Also love the little bits served on top.

Hay Gelato is Brine’s new R&D Kitchen, and you’ll probably understand more after seeing the unique flavours of ice cream they have. You can already tell from this flavour, but there were others like Yuzu Ginger, butternut squash and balsamic strawberry. After seeing some hype over Hay Gelato on Instagram, I decided that I had to try it myself. When I went at around 9.30pm, it was pretty crowded - probably the supper crowd. While crowd is always a good sign, it was also probably because the premises of the shop were very small.
This scoop of miso caramel was unexpected. For this premium flavour, it is $1 more than a normal single scoop. I heard the table next to me raving over how good it was and I thought I should give it a shot. However, it was completely unsuitable for my palate, and maybe even weird to some. Then again, there were others, like mentioned above, who appreciated it. I was expecting something like salted caramel, but true enough, it was miso caramel - with the miso flavour being overpowering, and the caramel flavour almost absent to me. So what I really got was a scoop of miso ice cream. Well I am not sure about savoury ice cream flavours, but this did not work out well for me. However, if you are a fan of strong miso flavoured ice cream, then this would be the one for you. Nonetheless, this flavour will not be deterring me from visiting the shop again, because I do wanna try their other interesting flavours, such as creamy matcha and banana burnt butter, which sounds too good not to try. In fact, what may actually deter me is the reality of the crowd that I might have to endure. (So it’s probably wiser to go during a non-peak timing).

This shaved ice bear was disappointing on so many levels, but I do appreciate the effort in the presentation and how cute this looks and how people walking past were just staring! Truth be told, this creative looking dessert looks delicious, but there really wasn’t much to it’s taste. I did think that snow shaven ice would be infused with the flavour that I chose - Hokkaido Milk, but instead, it was just plain shaved ice and a small portion of condensed milk in a shot glass. The texture of the shaven ice was also icy bits, not anything to be amazed by. It also came with really pathetic and small slices of fruits at the bottom, a pretty cheap-tasting vanilla ice cream and 2 plain biscuits that make up the ears. But I Guess it was gimmicky and nice looking! So if you’re into these things, it will be fun and worth it. However, personally, I would probably just stick with their cream puffs.

This cream puff was so decadent and luxurious to eat with the alfresco dining view at Baristart’s pop-up store located in Rumour’s Bar. Priding themselves on the fact that they use only premium milk, Hokkaido Biei Jersey Milk, the cream puff really didn’t disappoint. If you think that $5.50 for a cream puff is exorbitant, you might have to try this for yourself to become a convert, and perhaps stop settling for the typical cream puffs sold elsewhere. This cream puff for one was huge, with its size already making it worth the buck. But more importantly it was nothing like I have ever tasted before. The puff was crisp with sweet sprinkles, and the cream given was generous, oozing with every bite. The best thing? It wasn’t too sweet, with its flavour being light and tantalising for your after-meal tastebuds. I don’t think I will settle for any other typical cream puffs from now on!

Traditional chendol with authentic taste. Small bowl but a satisfying after meal dessert that melts in your mouth! Not too sweet at first but does get sweeter over time. But I loved how it’s not icy but rather soft and melty, blending in with the pandan, red bean and gula Melaka well!

This is a sweet dessert that is hard to fine in its authentic form in Singapore, but also requires an acquired taste for one to appreciate. Cannoli at Bar Cicheti has an outlet layer of crumbly crust that is thinner than usual, which may appeal to many. The creamy filling is due to the ricotta, and has bits of surprises of cranberries, chocolate chips and pistachios! An interesting choice of dessert you’d find in Singapore, and it’s worth a try if you like all things sweet😊
