Been coming here often over the years. The dashi here is really amazing and very comforting. First time trying the dashi ramen, and one of the better dishes. Noodles are springy and chewy on a wonderfully tasty dashi broth.

🍫Ice cream brownie ($14++): comes with a brownie, a choice of ice cream (we picked sea salt butter scotch, and I think it was a really good choice as the slight saltiness balances out the sweet bitter brownie and the other dessert item we got) and a small piece of cookie butter biscuit on the top. Came well presented with Chocolat drizzles all over

🍫 Ice cream smores ($14++): this comes with a fixed flavour scoop of 80% dark chocolate ice cream, torched smores and chocolates. I like how the dark chocolate ice cream was slightly bitter to balance out all the sweetness.

Between the two dessert items, we preferred the brownie one!😊

They actually gave me this cake by mistake, I had actually ordered the Nagomi for a birthday celebration, but I only realised when I reached home. Called to clarify that Nagomi = earl grey, and that the white one I had was Ivory 😂 They were apologetic and offered a complimentary slice of Nagomi the next time I came by, and since my dinner location was around the area, we went to pick up it up before dinner. Great service recovery!

The cheesecake mousse was light, smooth and didn’t feel surfeiting. The sable base wasn’t crumbly, quite snappy but would have liked it to be slightly more crunchy. Maybe it’s because we had it the day after? Nice touch with the fig jam but it was just a thin layer brushed onto the sable, I love figs so I would have appreciated more of it, but that might also throw off the balance that the pastry chef intended for. I did really like this cake though! Was pleasantly surprised, because I’m not usually a cheesecake person but I would be happy to get this again.

The cake part was q aerated, not dense at all. The cherries were ultra boozy, they really didn’t hold back with the Kirsch brandy. Chocolate mousse(?) was light. Overall, it was pretty nice, but it didn’t impress as compared to their other cakes.

First tried Pantler ~4 years back when they were still at Telok Ayer, and now they’ve shifted to a brighter, bigger space at River Valley - congrats! :)

We got 3 cakes from Pantler this time, and the Nagomi was the unanimous favourite! The earl grey mousse was smooth, fragrant, and melded well with the bergamot cream which provided a slight contrast of citrusy flavour. The caramelised almonds were crunchy and delish. Definitely would get this again :)

I got a Masala Thosai [$3.00] and Tea Halia [below$2] and the mix of spices was so aromatic and delightful for me, especially after a long day at work. Imagine whole spices of cinnamon, peppercorns, coriander seeds, cumin seeds and other kinds of spices toasted together with potatoes. How delicious. I loved how generous they were with the masala — I felt satiated after one masala thosai.

Incredible service from the staff, food was great too! We ordered medium rare steak and wasn’t disappointed, meat was tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outer layer.

The hot chocolate is really rich and just the right amount of sweetness. I was hoping for the drink to be hot like a warm hug but it was lukewarm. Still, it was a good hot chocolate drink that can satisfy your hot chocolate cravings any day.

Rating: 3.5/5

The cake was moist and rich but not overly sweet. As a dark chocolate lover, I wished it had a little more bitter notes for that bittersweet dark chocolate flavour.

Overall a decent chocolate cake!

Unlike what some of us may be familiar with, Blue Ginger’s otak otak does not have a chewy, bouncy texture but it is soft and disintegrates easily as you bite into it. To our pleasant surprise, the otak otak was very juicy and light.

The only thing we would hope for was for all the dishes to be served a little warmer as they were mostly served at room temperature.

Rating: 4.5/5 (wished it was more spicy but perhaps it was their intention keep the spice level low to cater to the majority)

Overall, Blue Ginger is a place that is suitable for families as the dishes are not too spicy and relatively well balanced in taste. They offer free flow of rice and achar too!

The grilled chicken thigh had a nice charred smokiness while still retaining its juiciness and tenderness. For someone who doesn’t like chicken skin, the chicken was grilled so perfectly that we ate the skin as well.

The sauce was made with coconut milk and a mix of spices which was really very lemak but fragrant. The ratio of coconut milk and spices was very well-balanced where one doesn’t empower another and does not cloy the palate.

The only thing we would hope for was for all the dishes to be served a little warmer as they were mostly served at room temperature.

Rating: 4.8/5 (our fav among everything we’ve ordered!)
