Ending the meal off at Marcy’s with a wonderful dessert. The pecan pie sundae was heavenly, with rich, chewy, vanilla bean gelato surrounded by homemade pecan chunks, which was nutty and not too sweet. Everything went so well together, I even forgot how pretty expensive it was😂

Would definitely recommend this dessert, and on top of this, the whole Marcy’s experience. Amazingly executed food aside, the cosy ambience is to die for - we really need more restaurants with a vibe like this!

Got the blue label soft serve ice cream in a cup for $8, and added brownie chunks for another $2. The swirl flavour simply means you get a mix of both vanilla and after eight, a mint chocolate flavour. I thoroughly adored the texture of the soft serve here, it does not melt too quickly, and has a nice milkiness to it. Hesitated adding the brownie chunks - but it really elevated the experience for me with that added chewiness.

Very interestingly done dessert with a savoury papadum placed on top of the ice cream!? Well it went decent together, the papadum was nice, but the sticky date pudding fell so short of expectations because of its pretty dry texture. That being said, you should try this if you’re in for something really sweet, especially with the caramelised banana on the side.

Located at East Coast Park, St Marc’s is an easy alternative for a midday treat and break that is not the overwhelmingly crowded Starbucks. I love warm desserts that are paired with ice cream - so this Fuji series St Marc’s offers was perfect. The warm puff pastry was light and fluffy, complementing greatly with the slightly sweet vanilla soft serve, which was made even sweeter with the black syrup drizzled all over it. While on the sweeter side, this desert remained very pleasant, and if you enjoy azuki red bean, this dessert would work even better for you.

A fusion of the classic tiramisu with fruits. Actually really enjoyed how this turned out. It was not too sweet a dessert, and the sponge was strong in both espresso and alcohol flavour, retaining a strong tiramisu element even as it was complemented with a light fruitiness.

Located in a small space in East Village is café cartisan, a café specialising in coffee, bakes, and came. The espresso meringue slice (right) was more memorable for its rich coffee flavour and light and fluffy meringue, though the texture of the sponge cake itself was more on the oilier side. The hot latte on the side was way too milky to my liking. The cafe constitutes a very small space, but they do seem to have a few slices of sweet treats that’s perfect for tea — whether takeout or not. I personally did not fancy the flavours of the cakes I had so much, but considering the limited dessert options around the Simpang area, this could be a place to consider.

Pictured above is the Kueh Salat ($16) with Butterfly Tonic ($24), and Exotique ($18) with Pilcrow’s Sweet Gin ($24).
The Kueh Salat had a nice mouthfeel with its smooth custard that was delicate in the combination of pandan and coconut flavours. I enjoyed everything about the cake, but not so much the very sweet Gula Melaka ice cream scoop on the side. Exotique, Pilcrow’s signature dessert packs a sour punch with its yuzu curd within a beautifully executed coconut mousse. Refreshing, but there was a slight disjoint between the yuzu and coconut flavours for me.
Both drinks were decent, and went great with the respective desserts. On a whole, I loved the progressive concept of the desserts here — how Pilcrow reimagines the flavours and pairs it with beautifully crafted drinks at the same time.

One of my favourite cafes located at Bendemeer — amazing fare with very delightful brunch food and pastas, and not forgetting a range of desserts which include cruffins & waffles. My previous trip to Glacier left me feeling so full I couldn’t get the waffle, but fulfilling the promise I made to myself I went back for it. The aroma of the Pandan waffle was rich, and the sticky mochi added a layer of chewiness with every bite. A delightful combination, but VERY filling. Both scoops of ice cream were decently executed as well!

Unfortunately not a fan of this. The base was way too milky, and there was an artificial sweetness to it. The grass jelly herb did try to neutralise all of that, but was still insufficient. Nothing impressive about the fruits either.

Had to wait 20 minutes for the molten chocolate cake so you know this better be good. The 70% valrhona guanaja molten chocolate was so rich, flowing out with a thick yet smooth consistency. No doubt it’s sweet, but nothing too unbearable if you neutralise it with the crumbs and vanilla ice cream on the side, as well as with a glass of wine. And definitely share this decadent dessert if you’re not too much of a sweet tooth.

Absolutely love the Sicilian pistachio here because it’s just so creamy and rich, and you can really savour the distinct pistachio nutty taste and bits. The yuzu martini was refreshing, with the extreme citrusy and sour notes from the yuzu with a slight alcohol undertone.

Matcha and sesame can easily be a match made in heaven. The cookie was a bit hard because it was frozen, so you run the risk of letting it melt a little before actually cutting it up. Or you could go for gold and just bite it as it is. Matcha and sesame ice cream were rich in their own right, yet intertwined with one another on the palate just right.
