[ Dessert Review ] Was very sullenly sitting in my room still feeling very under the weather and lamenting the lack of sweets at home, when a certain someone came to the rescue with these teeny toothsome treats from 2am:deseertbar!

He sent over two boxes: One was filled with adorable matcha madeleines, and the other with dainty strawberry financiers, with each set containing ten bite-sized, freshly baked — yes you read that right — little cakes (bonus: they don’t have cream on them too ahhh!). At 9pm. Love the modern conveniences of living in a city!

You know how even when you’re dining out, you rarely get the luxury of warm, made-to-order dessert? Now you can get that delivered to your doorstep! What bliss!

The madeleines were fluffy and light without feeling too porous nor spongey; these aren’t like the Japanese variants that are heavy with butter, and overly honeyed — they were sweet enough to satisfy my craving while still letting the slight bitter tinge of matcha shine through!

The financiers — which I tend to prefer, heh — were gorgeous! The strawberry was prominent in every bite without overpowering the cake’s innate almond fragrance; the edges were browned crisp and gave great texture contrast against the moist centre — I struggled to not eat all ten at a go because of how satisfying the eating experience was!

As someone who never found a reason to go to 2am:db, this just tipped my ambivalence over. I’m totally up for paying for well-made sweets (or any food really, heh), I was mainly swayed by naysayers claiming the items here are overpriced and subpar. When we can finally dine out again, you bet a certain someone and I are making a special trip down to enjoy their more elaborate creations!

[ Flavours in Focus: Watermelon Calamansi (Sorbet) + Apple Pie (ice cream) ] Always happy to visit the most reliable ice cream spot in the neighbourhood: Kindred Folk! One thing that keeps me visiting an establishment is a constant trend of improvement, and if you’ve been following KF since their inception years ago, you can really taste and feel the quality change!

Take my fav flavour Watermelon Calamansi for example. A month into opening, I remember despite how much I enjoyed the flavour combination, the sorbet lacked a cohesiveness — the ice felt separate from the flavours, and the entire texture was a tad too wet for my liking.

Fast forward to today, and you’ve this even and smooth scoop with a mouthfeel closer to the silkiness of ice cream than the icy sheen of most sorbets! The mix is a little more muted (for better not worse since you don’t get any of that cloying aftertaste a few spoons in), but you can still taste the refreshing sharpness of each flavour. Especially welcomed if you are looking for a palate cleanser!

The apple pie ice cream a certain someone got was pretty good too — velveteen exterior with surprise pockets of crumble inside; a very fun eating experience!
