$6.80 - it’s pricey but good dessert!

Overall 8/10 only because the durian purée is bitter and I don’t like bitter durian - but the durian purée tastes like 100% durian flesh (like you just peel from a legit durian itself)

The mousse is 10/10 - QQ bouncy, soft and it’s sweetness is very balanced. I really love the mousse!

Sadly, the menu has no variety of desserts but I’ll definitely come back for more! (IMHO I’ll choose this dessert stall over Ah Chew desserts)

Used Burpple 1 for 1 voucher here and we only paid $3.90 for classic single scoop! Really like their Matcha ice cream (from Matchaya) as its quite decent! Cafe itself is nice too, with indoor and outdoor seats!

Yam paste with gingko nuts and coconut milk. This bowl of silky yam paste is prepared and made with real yam from scratch. The coconut milk goes well with their pure yam paste with bits of yams in there 》$5.50/medium

**There was a change in their recipe during my recent visit. I kind of preferred the previous recipe with slightly salted coconut milk and fragrant shallot oil.

We celebrated a friend’s birthday at Ginett recently. Do make bookings in advance as walk ins tend to be disappointed even on weekdays.

We ordered their Foie Gras Terrine, Salmon in creamy spinach sauce and their G cut charcuterie with 3 cheese (you can choose from their list of hard and soft cheeses) and 3 meat. The Mimolette was a bit too hard at edge. Takes a bit of effort to cut it. The Brie was very soft almost gooey but the Camembert was just nice, with a hint of sea salt.

Really value for money cause the restaurant threw in a puff pastry on a plate with Happy Birthday written in it and served in a bird cage! And the birthday person got a bottle of white wine (2016 Voignier Christophe Pichon worth $30)

Coming back real soon. Got to taste their wagyu which will hopefully not be sold out.

Ordered this along with the Dan Dan Noodles and would say that this was really value for money and delicious! The skin is on the thicker side, but the filing is really juicy and flavourful. It’s perfectly cooked and tasted very fresh. Wiped out all 15 pieces by myself 🤤 Remember to pair it with the ginger and vinegar placed on the side!

A small issue was that another diner spotted a small roach near the counter top and the staff killed (?) it with the table cloth.

The noodles were soft, yet retains a chewy texture and clings on to the sauce really well. Frankly not the biggest fan of the sauce, which just tasted like mined meat with dou ban jiang. It was a little too salty as well. Added some vinegar and chilli oil and it tasted so much better!

Seating is limited, and be prepared to wait as it’s a one-man show. Don’t think I would return for this, but might return to try the soup noodles, which majority of the diners ordered!

Managed to snag this deal of $17 Australian Angus sirloin thanks to Chope’s one for one voucher! We asked for it to be cooked to medium. I thought my steak was a little too chewy, but it was really flavourful, I could just eat it on its own! Tried it with the herb sauce that came along and it was really tasty too!

Probably the best risotto I’ve had 🥺 It’s just the right amount of cheesiness and the rice grains were cooked till they were soft! Been to a couple of places with risottos that tasted good but the rice grains were still hard. We waited about half an hour for our order to be served so the wait was really worth it! The asparagus and brussel sprouts were 😘🤌🏻 Downside was that the portion size is a bit small!

Oh yes if you like champagne, they have 2 hours free flow mimosa cocktails for $15 during brunch timings!

Yat Ka Yan is a family-run 糖水店 that serves both traditional desserts and savoury snacks. The oldies have always been fascinated by the long queue outside the shop whenever we walk by after lunch but never got to try cos we were always headed elsewhere.

We finally did so one evening whilst waiting for Miss Korea. I thought their chai po chee cheong fun and glutinous rice were decent. The oldies did however enjoy their bowl of chendol which was apparently prepared from scratch. They thought it was on the light side and not too gelat. Coconut milk and my tummy aren't chummy so I had to give the chendol a miss. Their soursop ice jelly though was not too sweet and refreshing after a heavy meal at the Tokyo Curry Express.

They apparently do a really good walnut and black sesame paste which is one of my favourite desserts. I will hopefully be back soon to give it a shot!

4⭐ Back at 25 Degrees again bcos I purchased 1 for 1 deal during Chope year end sale. WB chose Number Three and I chose Number Four. I requested the spicy aioli sauce to be on the side as it's indeed very spicy for me. WB prefer his patty to be medium well. Lucky we didn't order additional side as the burger is very filling. Well, we have tried 4 burgers out of 5 on the menu, the burgers are one of the better ones we had in Sg.

Merely Ice Cream is just a place you go to even without Burpple Beyond. A place that has captured the hearts of students and will probably continue to do so for the next generation.

Just go try it.
