Have been to Tom’s Palette for quite a while ever since their days at Shaw Tower, but plated desserts are something that I have not seen them do until now — got intrigued by some posts over social media about the release of their festive special which runs from 20 November 2020 to 9 December.

Being an item which is part of the limited run of the Thai-inspired menu, The Longtail features elements such as Mango Soft-Serve, Thai Sweet Chili Caramel, Black Rice, Choux Pastry and Coconut Tuille. It’s probably one of the first few times that Tom’s Palette is exploring soft serves here, considering how they have been known for their ice-cream which are served in scoops — the Mango soft-serve was enjoyable however; carried the sweetness of said fruit without being a particularly milky or creamy flavour unlike how soft serves are known to be. The soft-serve also held itself well to the heat, considering how it actually took some time to melt as well. Sitting atop a choux pastry, the pastry is the vehicle here that gels the soft-serve and the black glutinous rice together; a spongey, light and airy pastry that was sufficiently moist, while the black glutinous rice carries an earthy note that is almost identical to that of Pulut Hitam without being particularly sweet. The Coconut Tuille over the top provides a good crunch and a hint of aromatic, coconut fragrance that is rather refreshing against the other elements. Most peculiar would be the Thai Sweet Chili Caramel; almost like a toned down version of the Thai Sweet Chili dip that we often get to go around the fried dishes at Thai restaurants, it may sound like a strange idea, but the sweetness works well against every single element — even to the extent of binding everything together, whilst carrying just a very light hint of spiciness at the end to tingle the taste buds that most folks should be tolerable to for a slight quirkiness to the dessert. As weird as it may sound, but it was actually rather appealing and surprisingly complimenting.

I always liked how Tom’s Palette carries their experimentation of flavours far beyond one can imagine — that’s exactly how ice-cream flavours like the White Chocolate Nori (my favourite btw) came about; an adventurous mix of flavours that is hard to imagine, but comes off together so perfectly despite how bold it may sound on the menu. This had also become something that shaped the character of Tom’s Palette over the years — somewhere that takes pride in the art of ice-cream making above and beyond with its new and inventive flavours. Looking forward to their next series that is to be launched in December; always enjoy a good plated dessert after all!

Very local, homely ice cream treats.

Decided to venture out of my usual Parmesan Cheese and Cream Crackers - Honey Cinnamon and Danish Cookie. Honey Cinnamon has a heavier cinnamon flavor and merely subtle honey. I initially thought that Danish Cookie will be the buttery and smooth type but it tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg and slight ginger instead - just like Speculoos-lite.

Have previously reviewed the hojicha as well as rum & raisin, so this review will be for the other two.

The kueh dardar flavour had notes of pandan and gula melaka, with shredded coconut folded into the ice cream. Was pretty sweet for us!

The carrot cake flavour was like having carrot cake (not the hawker fried carrot cake) but in ice cream form. There was the earthy, cinnamon + cream cheese taste, pretty true to the name of the flavour!

Tom’s does innovative flavours that actually work, I’m always excited to try them! Although I’ll have certain flavours that I prefer better than these more ‘wacky’ flavours, they do it well enough such that I’m not hesitant to try their new stuff :) There’s another ice cream place that does wacky flavours, but theirs sound much better than they taste - this is not the case for Tom’s 👌🏼
