a cafe tucked in a little corner at bras basah. has your usual coffees, didn’t have a huuuge variety of cakes to choose from, but we got the basque burnt cheesecake and red velvet cake! our iced lattes also came with a biscuit each. coffee was smooth and slightly bitter but i guess the cakes balanced it out! we went on a weekday so we were practically the only customers there and it made for a v cosy afternoon 🌻🌻

i absolutely looove green common :”) we came back here a second time bc we were digging their fish and chips from the first time we tried it 🤠🤠 fake meat but tasted like a yummy fish nugget. once again love their pea purée (and i usually hate peas so this is hUGE coming from me). also got lemon tea as our drink to balance out the oiliness from the batter. overall a hearty n sustainable meal 🌱🌱

for this branch i think they only let us use the deal for the giant/jumbo set?? i can’t rly rmb, was a while ago. but they had a variety of seasonings to choose from. the staff seemed a bit blur lol so i think she wasn’t sure herself but she said we had to choose the same flavour for both sets which was sadge 🥲 but at least we could choose diff flavours for the fries and popcorn so we tried seaweed and bbq! classic la can’t rly go wrong w those. serving size was also v big so you’ll definitely be full!! worth with burpple!

v sadly can’t rmb the exact flavours we got but i know i tried the pandan pearls which had a vvv vague hint of flavouring but wasn’t exactly strong. was also a macchiato which i rmbed was creamy and nice! amounted to abt $3+ per person for large sized cups so i guess it’s worth

i m probably the biggest gelatissimo fan out there i will always advocate for this brand bc it’s just so good and burpple makes it so worth! can’t rmb for sure but the flavours we got were mango (the best, no cap), forest berry yogurt, decadent cookie dough, green apple. no second thoughts y’all just get

ate this at the start of the year so i can’t rmb exactly how much we paid but i think it amounted to around $30 per person???? which was waaaaay more than we expected for a burpple deal 😤😤 we did top up drinks and other food but i don’t think we expected it to cost that much n we basically concluded that we were scammed.

but the food was gd ngl, had a huge variety of marinated meats and seafood and vegetables! the tom yum soup and tomato soup we got was vvvv tasty. also was served by a rly friendly waitress who kept checking in with us to change the oil sheet and top up soup 🥰 but ya other than that the burpple deal rly did nth much for us lol

i love genius central!! been craving these mexican cheese quesadillas for a while. we added chicken in (i forgot i think +$2.50??? can’t rmb) for extra protein! the skin was warm and crispy, cheese was rich and stringy, chicken was tender and juicy! loved the sides as well- the spices added seemed to give off a mexican-indian fusion (tasted q a bit of cumin). they also spammed the roasted potatoes (very nice, only gripe is they can be less of a thick cut but it’s a personal preference) so rest assured you’ll be full from the carbs!!

also lovely vibes! it doubles up as a workspace too so people do come here to study/do work/hold corporate events. and the staff are just the friendliest:)

i can’t rmb how much we saved - wasn’t very very much but it’s probably one of the cheaper hotpot buffets out there and we ate to our hearts’ content and spammed the meat to make our monies worth 🤠

backlog from the start of the year so i can’t rmb exactly what we got i think it was butterscotch popcorn and cookies n cream! they had a good range of flavours to choose from. pretty decadent and classic waffles, also rly loved the whole greek aesthetic of the cafe:)

backlog of reviews so this is from the start of the year and it honestly didn’t leave the best impression. it just felt like the waffles and ice cream were two separate entities and just didn’t blend well tgt in terms of texture and taste. can’t rly put a finger to it but hopefully it’s better now??

this place is rather pricey without the deal so really appreciated the 1-for-1!! i cannot get enough of gelatissimo’s flavours!! truly one of the most innovative and exciting around - and they do it with class and thought! the sentosa branch definitely had less flavours to choose from given that it’s a small cart serving a smaller crowd. we got raspberry, blood orange, mango, ube, coconut and rose lychee. we got the large cup which lets u get 3 flavours, and i’d recommend getting different taste groups because getting raspberry and blood orange in the same cup meant that the overall experience was q SOUR for me. but the flavours alone were really nice and refreshing! HUGE shoutout to ube and mango. the ube was creamy and grainy at the same time you could almost taste bits of taro in your mouth. and my oh my the MANGO. i heard it’s award-winning and it deserves it bc it is HELLA GOOD. such a simple flavour but executed with such gRAce. it literally tasted and FELT like ACTUAL mangoes being blended into gelato. was soft and firm and i honestly don’t know how they do it but it’s THE BEST if u are spoilt for choice mango is truly the way 😮‍💨😮‍💨
