We enjoyed the sweet-tangy strawberry rhubarb tart (4โญ๏ธ; $4.50) whilst the Japanese cheesecake (3โญ๏ธ; $5.50) was a tad dense and dry.

Dessert omakase for the dessert fans. The desserts were unique and refined, and it was an enjoyable casual, intimate experience watching Huishan prepare each item.

The second main was a medley of soy milk foam, soy milk gelato, and soy milk curd. Comforting and clean-tasting on its own and enhanced by the pairing with donuts. These donuts were amazing in their own right - crisp and airy with a salty cheese core (and are available alacarte).

Dessert omakase for the dessert fans. The desserts were unique and refined, and it was an enjoyable casual, intimate experience watching Huishan prepare each item.

The first main was presented as a guessing game (so skip if you donโ€™t want to find out!). While seemingly straightforward creamy vanilla ice cream, jelly film, and pomegranate, the dusting of powder was a blend of soursop and pomegranate which had an interesting depth beyond tanginess reminiscent of strawberry.

One of the better renditions Iโ€™ve had with fluffy interior and caramelised exterior. Loved the refreshing sea salt element balanced with caramel drizzle and luscious creme fraise ice cream

Super fun and innovative omakase gelato lab where one can customise their unique blend of mix-in, toppings, and drizzle.

For those less adventurous, you can choose from their signature omakases. Best seller roasted goma ($7.90) was ultra rich and earthy with black sesame gelato and paste, and toppings of crunchy almond flakes and sunflower seeds. Good for the nutty purists but personally would have liked for a more refreshing pair. Passionfruit tart ($7.90) had half a slice of actual tart with vanilla ice cream, lemon curd, speculoos, and berry drizzle. Had a buttery and mild citrus finish.

Decided to craft my own with a blend of Nyonya Kueh Salat, Hazelnut, and Gula Melaka ice cream. Enjoyed the interesting textural contrast of chewy rice and crunchy nuts. Would be back when feeling a bit more adventurous to try their Lao Gan ma signature ๐ŸŒถ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜œ

Gooey, oozy cheesecake with a thin bottom crumble layer. Savory, tangy, and nutty from the mix of different cheeses. Paired with refreshing tangy raspberry sorbet (wished there was more of this for better balance to cut through the richness). Have seen many comparing this to Oliviaโ€™s cheesecake but Oliviaโ€™s rendition remains the reigning champion for me, inching out in terms of complexity and refinement.

Both desserts are works of art in design and highly refined, clean and light tasting with fruity flavours, and not sweet at all. That said, the high price tag takes up most of my mind space, making it difficult to truly enjoy it for what it is. If this were $15, Iโ€™d say it was amazing. But at $26, itโ€™s probably good to have it once just to say youโ€™ve tried and not something Iโ€™d return for again ๐Ÿ˜….

In comparing the two, preferred ๐Œ๐š๐ง๐ ๐จ ๐ ๐ข๐ง๐ ๐ž๐ซ ๐Ÿ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฐ๐ž๐ซ ($26) for the tropical mango gel, sharp ginger finish, and crispy shortbread. ๐ƒ๐ซ๐š๐ ๐จ๐ง๐Ÿ๐ซ๐ฎ๐ข๐ญ ($26) had a crisp chocolate shell encasing sweet-sour dragonfruit mousse.

Thai tea white chocolate (4โญ๏ธ; $7) - personal favourite with aromatic tea
Golden hazelnut profiteroles (3.5 โญ๏ธ; $9) - interesting tart with mini choux in a buttery pastry. Found them to be quite separate and the choux more chocolatey than nutty.
Ondeh ondeh gateaux (3โญ๏ธ; $7) - nice flavours and not too sweet but found it on the creamier side and wished for more textural contrast
