[INVITED TASTING] Had a chance to try out the different desserts Butter Studio had to offer and here are some mentions:

Sea Salt Nutella Tart ($6.90): If you love your nutella, this is one to try. The nutella filling is so rich with the hazelnut chocolate flavours and what that impressed me was the tart pastry itself, as it was not too hard nor crumbly. Glad that it wasn't soft or soggy too! Definitely a fresh tart.

Summer Lemon with Coconut Meringue Tart ($7.90): not too sweet and yet refreshing, I love the citrus flavours coming through this one. The coconut flavours are subtle and not overpowering, complementing the lemon flavours well!

Red Velvet Cupcake ($3.90): really can't go wrong with this one, as its their all time signature. Soft cake with good cream cheese frosting. May get abit sweet towards the end!

Pistachio Gelato ($6): Glad that it's smooth and not grainy at all, with the nutty flavours of the pistachio coming in moderately strong. This is a creamier version but I believe the pistachio flavour can be stronger!

Thank you for the invite @burpple and thank you @butterstudio for hosting!

Chanced upon this durian cafe and oh my this is one place every durian lover should go.

We got the Durian Sago ($8.50) which seems to be one of the signatures here. The desserts here are made with MSW durians and I definitely can taste the high quality durians used in this dessert. The mousse itself is thick, very rich and very fragrant, with strong decadent durians flavours. To accompany the mousse, you have abit of shaved ice that helps to keep the dessert cold and coconut nata de coco which was a complementary addition. You also have the scoop of what I thought was durian ice cream, but it's actually frozen MSW durian meat. Having the meat together with the mousse intensifies the durian flavours, but gives a more bittersweet flavour which we loved.

The Durian Roll ($8) was soft and isn't that rich, but overall a good Swiss roll. Definitely generous with the durian cream within the roll.

The durian sago is what I am willing to travel from the east for, when I'm craving durian desserts😍

Every time I crave for durian desserts, this is one of my go-to places. Their Durian Mousse ($9.80 with double portion of D24 durian flesh) is very satisfying with cold durian cream that is thick and refreshing and durian flesh that is fresh and aromatic. It was so good we had to get 2 bowls to share!

We got their Mango Pomelo Sago ($4) as well, which was creamy and came with huge chunks of mango pieces that were adequately sweet. A standard Chinese dessert to order!

Definitely one dessert place to check out, especially when they open till late.

Hidden within a neighbourhood lies a homely ice cream cafe, with quality waffles and ice cream we loved!

Flavours of ice cream we got were:

Yakult Grape: very refreshing, each mouthful comes with a punch of grape flavour and a sour yogurt like aftertaste. Best for a hot afternoon!

Peanut Butter Oreo: this rendition isn't grainy at all, and I loved the deep peanut flavour that hits you straight and chocolatey oreo bits that comes after as you bite them.

Brownie: this is my personal favourite, as the chocolate flavours are really rich and strong. Very incredibly smooth and decadent.

Black Sesame: milky and slightly earthy, we felt like the black sesame taste isn't strong. Sadly this was our least favourite.

The waffles were really delightful, as they were crispy and airy, with a slight fluffiness within. Definitely a good non heavy waffle to have after a filling meal! Each double scoop waffle is $12.50.

Saw this really popular Chinese dessert stall and really couldn't resist their chendol!

Their chendol ($3.2) is drenched in a lot of coconut milk and a really thick gula melaka syrup, which makes it so satisfying and addictive. It's not too sweet and has the savoury touch, making it not surfeiting. They were generous with the beans and pandan jelly as well.

We tried their other desserts as well and they were good but not too impressionable. If I'm around the area I might probably come here for their desserts, especially the chendol!

If you love your durian, this is a wonderful place to indulge in your cravings! The whole cafe is filled with the beautiful fragrance of fresh durian and we loved the dessert we got!

The durian chendol ($5.30) may be a small bowl, but it is packed full of flavour coming from the coconut milk and gula melaka and they gave a good scoop of fresh durian flesh that smooth and really fragrant! Definitely a heavenly bowl to share.

We got a quarter roll of their durian roll ($6.50), and we loved that the cream itself contains durian flesh! The flavour of the cream isn't as strong, but it is definitely more creamy. Overall a pretty good cake!

One of the many dessert cafes in bedok, Denzy Gelato is popular to many living around the area. We had their double scoop waffles, with their Yuzu Mango and Mocha Crisps gelato flavours. The Yuzu Mango was extremely refreshing, especially when it's like a sorbet. The fruity tangy flavours come through strongly, making this perfect for a hot day! The Mocha Crisps had a moderately strong coffee flavour, smooth and not too acidic and had fun crispy chocolate balls within.

The waffles itself is the very airy kind and not too doughy. Pretty much the whole outer layer is very crispy! Wonderful cafe to go to if you are around the area!

Always been a fan of Matchaya desserts, and their parfait ($16.80) did not disappoint either.

The parfait came with 4 scoops of soft serve, though it was supposed to be all of their available flavours, sadly they ran out of black sesame and hokkaido milk that day. We had the houjicha and Matcha soft serve then and both were so rich! Loved the roasted flavours coming from the houjicha, and the aromatic tea flavours from the Matcha. It also came with popped rice, mochi and azuki, which we thoroughly enjoyed as it goes well with the soft serve. It's good for 3-4 to share and satisfy your matcha cravings!

I remembered the bingsu I had in a previous visit was good, but unfortunately this one wasn't the best.

We ordered the Mango Pop Bingsu ($12.80 30% off with Eatigo) and I was rather disappointed with the frequent larger chunks of ice within the bingsu which were hard and the mango pieces which were mostly frozen and too cold. The saving grace was actually the mango pearls which had a satisfying pop whenever you bite into it, and the coconut ice cream which was flavourful but not too sweet.

Perhaps maybe other flavours may be better. I will still come back again to try others!

Finally trying out this immensely popular ice cream cafe in Hougang! We had 2 scoops of ice cream with waffles for $11.80, which I find it to be pretty affordable considering the ice cream cafes in Singapore. The waffles, though crispy and airy, lacked a buttery flavourful that I wish was more prominent! But it was alright with the ice cream. The ice cream flavours we got were Lychee Rose and Hazelnut Truffle which were delightful!

The Lychee Rose came surprisingly as a sorbet, and we were glad it was. It was such a refreshing flavour, with both Lychee and Rose flavours complementing each other so well. Really aromatic. We loved it so much that we almost wanted to get another scoop!

The Hazelnut Truffle was thick, rich and had strong nutty flavours. Wished that there were more truffle pieces within, as the chocolate really paired the ice cream well.

Definitely will be back for the Lychee Rose!

Hidden within the quiet estate lies 2nd Serving, which is known to serve mochi waffles! Didn't managed to try the waffles today but tried a variety of ice cream flavours!

The Yuzu flavour was actually not too tangy yet citrusy and it wasn't too sweet too! Very refreshing for a hot weather.

The Lychee flavour was actually the best among all, due to its non perfume-y flavour and yet not too sweet. Very light tasting and definitely very refreshing!

The Banana Roasted Nuts was alright as well, as the banana flavours did not come out too strong and the nuts within were fresh!

Yogurt Biscoff was interesting, as the yogurt flavours cut the sweetness of Biscoff quite abit. Wished that they added lotus biscuit bits too!

The scoops of ice cream were between $4.50 and $5.50 each and they were available 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond 😍 will be back to try their mochi waffles!!

Most people would have heard of this ice cream cafe, and I finally had a chance to try this after a long time! The ice cream standards here remains pretty much as good as before!

We had the waffles with double scoop (~$15) with the pistachio and mochacino flavours. Love the all famous pistachio gelato, as not only it was really smooth, the pistachio nutty flavours were intense.

The Mocha flavour was also really pleasant, with the chocolate and coffee aromatic flavours complementing well without overpowering each other.

Waffles are crispy yet fluffy with substance. Definitely a good cafe to chill with friends!

Love to travel for food and seek new places to satisfy my appetite 😋
