Didn’t try the ube but the bf said it was very Tammy, but also very sweet. Can try once but not something to go back for. The kaya chendol was not bad, it’s sweet but it’s true to its name, I liked it! Texture for both is like their usual standard, pretty thick. We used the burpple 1-4-1 deal for this so it was only $2.50 per scoop!

Strawberry basil was quite refreshing, the basil was quite strong and lent a herby flavour to the strawberry base. It’s interesting and quite pleasant, but I wouldn’t reorder. The pistachio was lightly nutty and on the milkier side, we prefer a more intensely nutty one (like dawn’s / dopa’s) as we usually share our gelatos and it doesn’t get too cloying. But this one we could probably eat a full scoop by ourselves as it’s light! So I guess it depends on what your preference is.

The cones was alright, thin and crisp but quite fragile. Can try!

Tasted neither like maple nor walnut - on first taste it had this weird cookie dough taste that wasn’t very pleasant. The only saving grace was the texture I guess, it was quite thick and smooth. Would not recommend.

My friends got other flavours and I got to try - the matcha is better, quite strongly matcha and reasonably bitter; the coconut lychee is also another flavour to avoid as the coconut cream taste was too strong and tasted quite off-putting, not refreshing at all and the lychee flavour was barely discernible; pistachio was lightly nutty but more on the milky side so those who prefer a more intensely nutty one would find it a bit mild.
I think the sunset way outlet has better flavours. But I’ve tried burnt cones thrice and it hasn’t really impressed so this visit affirms that it’s not someplace I’ll go to unless someone else suggests it + can redeem burpple. At the original price of $6 per premium scoop it’s a bit much for something that is *okay only*.

my 4th time at second serving - I thought their ice cream ain’t spectacular but it’s a nice cosy place in the neighbourhood :-) tried classic waffles for the first time not bad! Hot crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I also tried the mochi chocolate waffle before - remember that it was interesting how it got a bit gelak towards the end so didn’t get it again. But can get rlly crowded post dinner - both weekdays and weekends!

An outlet exclusive! This was really nice. It’s very different from any other waffle (bagged neighbourhood bakery waffles / plated waffles from cafes), they use rice flour in the batter so the result is a mochi waffle that is delicately crisp outside, but chewy and a bit stretchy inside.

The goma gelato was v good too. Properly nutty and rich in sesame flavour, it’s sweet and has a flavour profile similar to a bssm tangyuan filling. As much as I liked bop’s goma gelato, this had a more intense flavour. Also it doesn’t melt too quickly so you can slowly savour it. The toasted rice topping was the cherry on top - it’s toasty and ricey, seems like a small component but it added a lot to the enjoyment. Highly recommend their mochi waffles and this goma gelato pairing!!

We both preferred the banana one. There was a pleasant banana flavour, and was reasonably smooth and creamy. The walnuts added a crunch, while the brownies were rly fudgy and provided another layer of texture. The Baileys one wasn’t as nice, the alcoholic-ness of it was only slightly present, could have been much more boozy. Brownies were similarly fudgy.

I realise their aircon is rly cold so it helps the gelato melt less quickly.

I liked this!! Was roasty enough and the gelato was smooth + it didn’t melt quickly. I tried matchaya’s hojicha before (in a pint, not sure if that affects) and it was very grainy so this was much better. Was satisfied! The cone was also not bad, it was crunchy like a wafer and it held its shape despite being so thin, and didn’t threaten to disintegrate/crumble as the gelato didn’t leak through it too quickly. Tbh I prefer thicker cones, but I didn’t mind this. My bf liked the cone a lot!

I was SO pleasantly surprised by this hidden find. It looks like a regular themed cafe (bike-themed in this case) so I was expecting their stuff to be average at best. But to my amazement their coffee was pretty solid (I didn’t try, but all my friends thought the coffee was good) and the gelato was amazing. The roasted pistachio was roasty and nutty and thick, didn’t melt v quickly and wasn’t very sweet - it ticks all the boxes of good pistachio gelato. In fact I would place this as top 3 or 5 pistachio gelatos I’ve tried! The yuzu mint sorbet was great too, very refreshing, and the mint was a nice sidekick, not too strong - yuzu was the main flavour. The texture was also a bit sticky/stretchy, not really icy.

I was very blown away at the quality of the items this cafe offered, it’s a pity they’re located rather inconveniently for me, in the depths of Changi Village. But I think I would still make a trip there bc I want to bring others to try this amazing find.

Loved the roasted sesame!!! It may look mild but it’s has such strong sesame flavours - it’s sweet but not overly so, gives me bssm tangyuan vibes in terms of flavour. It’s actually roasted white sesame with bssm swirled in, and it’s nutty and fragrant, big yums 🤤 Texture-wise, it’s rather smooth and creamy.

Dark choc sorbet was rich and chocolatey, was rather refreshing for a chocolate flavour - not as heaty and creamy. It’s lighter on the palate! Texture was smooth and not at all icy, it’s one of the few sorbets I like and have tried a few time :’)

This was during our first try! Textures were great - both were smooth, thicC & creamy, with a kinda sticky consistency. They also don’t melt quickly. Pistachio was pretty nutty and not very sweet! Tastier than the average ones from apiary/creamier/etc. - it’s one of the better ones, comparable to venchi/dawn’s/dopa.

The burrata balsamico (actually it’s mascarpone, but it’s creamy & burrata-like so they labelled it as such) was creamy and very slightly tangy, not too heavy. The aged balsamic swirled in was rich with a mellow sweetness - we enjoyed this unique pairing!

As usual, textures were pretty good - smooth, creamy, and thick. Chocolate was pretty rich and dark, but didn’t taste super heaty. Was like a nice chocolate mousse, sorta. Yogurt raspberry was tangy (mostly from the yogurt), with the raspberry swirled in giving some additional tartness. We enjoyed both flavours!

It’s a premium flavour so +$1, and cone is $1. It’s a decent pistachio gelato, but not one of the best I’ve had - dawn’s gelato, dopa dopa, and venchi do a more creamy, intensely flavoured one. This one is of similar standard to apiary I feel. It’s decently nutty and smooth, but I’ll would rather go for their other flavours! Love the thyme cone as usual, it’s crunchy and fragrant and one of my fav cones ever :)
