The mango sticky rice, on the other hand, was an interesting rendition. Reconstructing the familiar mango sticky rice into caramelised mango (I would actually prefer the natural sweetness of the fruit itself instead of the caramelic sweetness), coconut “rice” crisps reminiscence of wafer biscuit and coconut sorbet. The use of sago beads here to replicate the sticky rice was unique and had a firmer texture.

To end off the dinner, we had both choices of the dessert. Durian lovers are in for a treat with this durian cheesecake, as it is created with Musang King Durian. A creamy rich layer of durian and cream cheese atop the crushed biscuit base, the dessert was enjoyable as it was a good balance of sweetness and pungency from the king of fruits, embellished with caramelised spun sugar shaped like a crown.

To end off the dinner, we were served each a chocolate tart embellished with some soya miso curd and black sesame seeds, paired with Hokkaido milk gelato and cereal flakes. While the dark chocolate filling was pretty smooth, the tart shell was a tad too dry and upon cutting, the tart shell was separated with the chocolate filling. The soya miso curd was interesting, although the taste of soya superseded that of miso, while the Hokkaido milk gelato paled in flavour. Overall taste of the dessert could have been better balanced.

Chanced upon the Herencia while in the area where we found KURA, and several other dining concepts under one roof. It was tough time trying to choose just 1 dessert to share because everything on display looked simply alluring. We asked for the best seller and yes, this was it; La Vie En Rose.

Aesthetically shaped, the tart comprises sea salt chocolate, dark chocolate and milk chocolate. The Rose itself looked like it was too creamy to handle, but it was so well whipped that the cream tasted pretty light. The combination of dark and milk chocolate was a good balance of bitterness and sweetness, while adding a touch of saltiness with the sea salt. What I enjoyed the most was the cacao nibs under the rose since it contributed some crunchiness to the overall texture.

We paired the tart with a cup of local yuan yang which was rich and reasonably priced at $1.50.

We ended off the dinner with 2 desserts; 1 being the brownie ice cream bomb which we were all expecting a lava to be oozing out from within. However, it was extremely hard to cut through as it was a frozen slab of brownie. Hidden within was a block of New Zealand vanilla bean ice cream. No doubt I enjoyed the sweet creamy vanilla bean ice cream and the fruits and crumble that came along, the texture of the brownie was probably not something I could appreciate.

Dewgather has indeed gathered pretty much crowd ever since their opening at Star Vista, with both indoor and outdoor seating. Spacious, bright thanks to its full length glass windows and an overall dusty pink interior.

Other than being instagrammable, I would not recommend getting the French Toast. Firstly it was only served an hour later although we asked to be served upon ordering and in between we have asked for it multiple times. No doubt it is aesthetically pleasing, the overall taste was merely sweet, without much depth. Served on a thick sliced brioche toast which was extremely dry. Thankfully, there was a scoop of crème anglaise ice cream, brown sugar crumble, crushed pistachio, berry compote to soak up the terribly dry brioche toast, before topping it off with candy floss and some edible flowers. If I were to ever return, I will probably just stick to the savoury mains.

I must say it’s a creative idea to inject some local-inspired flavours into their pizza range especially for a dessert pizza, however, there’s much room for improvement for the ondeh ondeh pizza. It is equally as thick and has the similar dry crust as the other range flavours, which feels like they are simply using the same mould across. Personally I thought that for such a sweetness overloaded pizza, it would have been better if the size was smaller and definitely worked better with a thin crust. The overall flavour was rather one dimensional, mainly with grated coconut drizzled heavily with gula melaka, such that the coconut ice cream was overpowered. Ended off quite jelak.

We had initially only wanted to try the 6 pieces since I am not a big fan of mochi, but the staff recommended for the 18 pieces as it was more worthwhile and we can have a mix of both the kinako and matcha flavours.

Unlike the other mochis that’s sticky, the warabi mochi is made using starch thats produced from the bracken root, thus giving rise to its unique jelly-like texture instead of just the glutinous rice kind of stickiness. The kinako flavour is one that has the warabi mochi dusted with a layer of kinako, which is soybean flavour, therefore explains the nuttiness and a hint of toasted note. Dip it in the brown sugar syrup for an extra kick of brown, caramelised sweetness in case you find it plain. Personally, I preferred the matcha flavour as it is more flavourful but some would probably find the matcha dusting bitter.

We ended off the dinner with their highly recommended mango sticky rice, which we truly enjoyed! The Thai mango served was extremely sweet and fragrant, while the portion of sticky rice was just right, nicely packed in a block of a balanced texture. Dip into the coconut milk for an extra aromatic taste without being overly milky!

Getting the coconut pandan waffles was a brilliant choice by the bf, but pairing it with the black sesame gelato proved to be a perfect combination. True to its taste, the black sesame gelato was nutty with a hint of bitterness. The coconut pandan waffles was indeed aromatic and creamy, but what’s more pleasant was the hidden mochi-like texture. For someone who doesn’t enjoy mochi because of the sticky chewiness, I found myself enjoying and will probably be back for more. Drizzled around the waffle was their gula melaka sauce, so rich in flavour of molasses.

You would also find a Vietname influence on their desserts such as Dalat and some gelato flavours (Ca Phe) as the co-owner is a Vietnamese.

Sunset way has now turned into the land of gelato and ice cream, just like how we know Toa Payoh to be the land of bubble tea. A visit to @hundredacre.sg, inspired by Winnie the Pooh and its fictional Hundred Acre Wood, was filled with happiness especially with its warm colour tone interior.

I can’t deny the fact that I was spoilt for choice with their interesting flavours selection such as ocean blue and peach basil. Finally decided on the honey chrysanthemum with cacao nibs as I was craving for a floral flavour on that day. Instead of a mere white floral taste, I was first greeted by the sweet honey note, followed by a delicate herbal floral sweetness, and slight bitterness as I bite into the cacao nibs. Extremely delighted by this tasteful rhythm, boosted further by the choice of a rosemary cone. The herbaceous, lemon piney notes that came through were way intense than what you get from the thyme-infused cone at BOP.

No. 17, a typical fruity crepe. Topped with sweet Raspberry jam, and some fresh blueberries and strawberries, this combination just can’t go wrong. Probably except for the fact that the berries were slightly sour. A refreshing choice for dessert!

By the way, French Fold has several menus for different timings of the day but they are pretty similar. We could only order this before 4pm which is the ending time for Lunch. However, this was also on the next menu starting at 4pm for afternoon tea.
