Plum Glazed Blueberries on Almond Frangipane and with my usual - flat white coffee.
.
The filling of the tart was a little sweeter than what I would have liked - but hey, it’s a tart and it’s supposed to be sweet. In any case, it went really well with my Flat White coffee. However, I felt that the crust was a tad hard - had to use strength to cut into it. But overall, it was a nice treat and I did enjoy my alone time over this - would definitely come back to try their other tarts created by Les Amis group pastry Chef...!!

I’m so glad that Old Amoy Chendol decided to set up a temporary stall while Chinatown Complex Food Centre is on a three-month long renovation project. Located along Trengganu Street - it’s stall #12 - the last stall of the stretch of stalls.
.
This time, I requested for more Gula Melaka cos I wanted it a little sweeter and I’m glad I did - made it a perfect ice cold dessert to beat our unpredictable Summer heat...!!
.
By the way, a bowl of chendol now cost $2.50 instead of $2.

My daughter claimed that she was really full after lunch - but I guess there’s always room for ice cream...!! Earl Grey Ice Cream - bold and intensely flavoured - if you like tea, you’d like this velvety sweet treat - it was pretty tea-rriffic if you ask me...!!
.
As for my flat white - I udderly didn’t like it at all...I don’t blame them since this isn’t a coffee place - well, bad coffee is better than no coffee at all...!!

Went on a date with my daughter the other day since we’ve not done this for a while ... chatting about stuff and her plans for her future - did that over some waffles served with fresh whipped cream and blueberry sauce, mocha frappe and tea.
.
The after-dinner dessert was alright - nothing unique about it - but the company was great and I truly enjoyed the conversations and the time spent with my daughter...!!

Wanted to do dessert at Magnum Pleasure Store but since there weren’t any seats for the family, we headed over to TCC that was just across from it. Had the Dark Devotion - TCC’s signatures molten dark Chocolate cake that oozes warm chocolate lava when cut - garnished with fresh berries, berries coulis, Chocolate and Almond Tuile and a could-be-a-bigger-scoop of Vanilla Gelato...!! So decadent, so sinful...!!

Should I, should I not, should I, Ok...I should and I will...!!
.
Ordered the Kuro Goma Souffle (Black Sesame) for dessert - light, airy, fluffy, moist, soft, and lightly sweetened - it would be been even better if topped with a scoop of Goma Ice Cream....!! Oh well, maybe next time...!!

Stopped by for a much dinner cup of coffee. Chose this Berry Lovely Pastry over the cakes to go with my Iced Cold Brew.
.
The flaky, buttery puff pastry combined with smooth, slightly sweet pastry cream and topped with raspberries, blackberries and black cherries - sweet and slightly tart - it was simply a delicious little bite...!!

Loved this cream puff - the pastry was light and crispy. Filled with creamy custard made of Hokkaido Biei Jersey Milk, the puff oozes out loads of custard when cut.
.
Will try their parfaits the next time I’m there. Was told by my colleague that they’re really good...!

Life begins after coffee... and an Apple Crumble Cake...!! The cake was a little too sweet for me though.

French Toast isn’t just for breakfast - had some Strawberry French Toast for my afternoon tea...!!
.
The warm French toast was topped with a generous amount of cut strawberries, a scoop of their homemade whipped cream, drizzled with strawberry sauce and maple syrup before dusting it with powdered sugar for a delightful finish. What’s not to like when it accompanied with a much needed cup of coffee - a Hikoboshi blend coffee to be exact...!!

Had a Mango Sago and Pomelo Cream before heading off to a secondary school reunion - Diced fresh mango and pomelo sprinkled atop a scoop of what tasted like mango ice cream - sitting on a mango purée base with sago bubbles that would burst in your mouth - Refreshing and just fun to eat...!!
