finally being able to go out for spontaneous ice cream supper with the fam after PH2A ๐Ÿ™Œ found this newly opened cafe on burpple and decided to give it a try. overall, the waffles were not bad - crispy on the outside and flavourful on the inside. i personally found the ice cream a bit too sweet for me, and like what others have said i think the flavours could be brought out more! price wise: we paid $15.40 for 2 double scooped ice cream + waffle combis (after 1-1). anw i liked that the cafe wasnโ€™t crowded so itโ€™s still a great chill spot ๐Ÿ™‚

iโ€™m a chocolate lover and ice cream lover so was expecting myself to love this place andโ€ฆโ€ฆ.YES I DID. we used the burpple deal for the ice bar - i got the ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–% ๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ๐ฒ ๐๐š๐ซ๐ค ๐œ๐ก๐จ๐œ๐จ๐ฅ๐š๐ญ๐ž (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ—.๐Ÿ“๐ŸŽ++) and my mom got ๐“๐ก๐ž ๐œ๐ก๐จ๐œ๐จ๐ฅ๐š๐ญ๐ž ๐š๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ ๐š๐ญ๐จ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ—.๐Ÿ“๐ŸŽ++). the ice cream bar is sorta like a sundae but omg the ice cream stole the show. i love insanely dark chocolate ice cream and the 82% very dark chocolate ice cream was just ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ was real good guys especially if youโ€™re a chocolate lover. i personally prefer the ice cream by itself (idk if they have that option), but if i were to choose from the above 2 ice bar options, i would go for the affogato one - the coffee was really bitter fyi but paired well with the ice cream. it gave an intense atas feel to each bite ๐Ÿคฉ the staff were also really friendly, recommending us the ice cream flavour to be paired with our ice bar choice :-)

A small ice cream parlour to satisfy that late night craving๐Ÿฆ Given the small size of the shop, flavours are also a tad limited compared to other ice cream shops, but quality is ๐Ÿ‘. My favourite flavours would be the ๐…๐ข๐Ÿ๐ญ๐ฒ ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐๐ž๐ฌ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ž๐š๐ซ๐ฅ ๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐ฒ and ๐‡๐š๐ณ๐ž๐ฅโ€™๐ฌ ๐ค๐จ๐ฉ๐ข ๐Ÿ’โ˜•๏ธ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ’.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ ๐ž๐š๐œ๐ก) The earl grey esp wasnโ€™t too strong on the tea taste and had a pleasant uniqueness. However, the outsides of the waffles werenโ€™t as crispy as we had hoped for them to be. Personal taste though! Also, the vibes here is ๐Ÿ˜ Chill & cozy with fairy lights.

Right after our dinner at the Bedok Market place, we popped by this ice cream cafe to end off our day with some sweetness๐ŸฆIt was a pretty small place but they do have gOod ice cream. My favourite would be the pictured ๐‡๐š๐ณ๐ž๐ฅ๐ง๐ฎ๐ญ ๐œ๐จ๐จ๐ค๐ข๐ž ๐๐จ๐ฎ๐ ๐ก (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ’.๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ) as the flavours just come together so nicely ๐Ÿฅบ I also liked the ๐๐ซ๐ž๐ฆ๐ข๐ฎ๐ฆ ๐ฉ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐œ๐ก๐ข๐จ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ“) as it wasnโ€™t too sweet and had a real nutty taste to it. Definitely coming back, especially with the burpple 1-1 ๐Ÿค˜

A low key but very impressive dessert place with the diversity of Taiwanese desserts they have ๐Ÿคค Itโ€™s like a cheaper black ball to me, and with the 1-1, itโ€™s SO WORTH. I got the ๐“๐š๐ซ๐จ ๐›๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐ ๐ซ๐š๐ฌ๐ฌ ๐ฃ๐ž๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐ ๐›๐ž๐š๐ง (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ‘.๐Ÿ–๐ŸŽ) which tastes pretty standard and definitely satisfies that Taiwanese dessert craving. However, I would like to give the other desserts a try because Iโ€™ve heard their ๐Œ๐ข๐ฅ๐ค ๐ฉ๐ฎ๐๐๐ข๐ง๐  (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ‘.๐Ÿ”๐ŸŽ) is somewhat heavenly ๐Ÿคฉ

One of the best chendol in SG? Yes agreed. The gula melaka in this ๐๐จ๐ฐ๐ž๐ซ ๐œ๐ก๐ž๐ง๐๐จ๐ฅ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ) was rly thiiccc - aka whatโ€™s needed in a ๐Ÿ’ฏ chendol. So be warned: those who have lighter palates might not like this as much. For me though, I would also have liked it to be less icy. But other than that, definitely give this place a try. Even if youโ€™re not coming here for Chendol, they are good for everything else I think bc I persistently see a queue at the shop.

Hojicha petit gateu (~SGD8.80): Finally got to try Hvala ๐Ÿคค Have heard that they have quality matcha and hojicha, & I was proven right. This cake was sooooo thicc, creamy with a nice amount of bitterness that showcases the premium hojicha used. Definitely not for the faint hearted as itโ€™s pretty strong!
.
Matcha hojicha latte ice blend (~SGD 6): A very interesting but superb take on the classic matcha latte. I would say itโ€™s sweeter than the cake, but overall a good drink to satisfy your matcha/hojicha craving. Overall, I think Hvala is worth the hype & will definitely be back ๐Ÿ˜Š
