Ju Pu: Chrysanthemum and Pu Erh was a really nice combination - not too sweet, yet fragrant - and apparently a healthier option. I liked the creamy sticky texture of the ice cream even though it was slightly melted when served to us.

Guava with Sour Prune Sorbet: Sweet, sour and refreshing - perfect for a hot day. I like trying interesting flavours, so this was a nice change.

Overall - ice cream was great, but it’s really pricey because there’s GST and service charge on top of it all. And there were also 2 dead cockroaches at the sides of the shop which were a lil off putting. I may come back if I’m around the area but only if I’m planning to use the Burpple Beyond deal.

Couldn’t resist trying this interesting sounding tart out! The main filling - Republica del Cacao 33% blended with Andean corn - somehow reminded me of delicious caramilk chocolate, but creamy. Didn’t really taste the corn in it though. I also absolutely adored the chewy orange marmalade jelly in the middle, which was a refreshing pairing with white chocolate.

The tart is very tiny though - it’s smaller than my palm, which says quite a bit because my palm is not that big to begin with. I think it’s a pretty tasty tart overall, but pricey for its size. I guess my review of this tart is similar to my review of the drinks here.

We visited here on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn’t too crowded. Quite a nice casual place to chill with friends.

Toast was very crispy and crunchy. I thought the ice cream provided would be coconut ice cream but it tasted more like vanilla ice cream, though there was a generous amount of dried coconut shavings all around the dessert.

Overall not too bad, wouldn’t pay full price for this but it’s alright with the 1-for-1 Burpple deal. They are very flexible with the options applicable for the Burpple deal - the staff literally told me “everything also can”, which is a great plus point!

Probably not for fussy eaters but as long as you don’t expect some amazing restaurant quality food here, I honestly think it’s a pretty okay option to just grab something casual, sit down and chat with friends with no pressure of dining time limits and such. We visited on a weekday night and it wasn’t too busy, didn’t have to wait too long to get our food either.

I’m a sucker for milky things - when I saw a milk pie pastry that could be eaten on the go I had to get it. The Japanese Mascarpone Cheese and French Cream filling was heavenly, light in texture and cheesiness yet creamy and full of milkiness. Tastewise overall similar to a custard pie but lighter and more milky, cheesy and creamy.

Unfortunately the texture of the shell was not as amazing. I thought the choux and pie dough combination ended up with a not very crispy but doughy and gooey pastry - which wasn’t that nice. Maybe it’s better if you get it freshly baked so the texture wouldn’t be so flat - all the pies were prepared in advance beforehand though.

Overall not too bad of a try if you want to just try the cream (ha ha this is technically a cream pie), as the cream is the best part of this dessert. Otherwise I would probably give their other desserts a go instead.

A light and fruity tart - the blueberry compote, pear jelly & almond frangipane went wonderfully together, overall not too sweet. It was a very refreshing tart which we quickly gobbled up. A simple fruit tart but executed deliciously. They were quite generous with the fruits as well.

Price tag is rather high for a dessert like this - though it’s made much more reasonably priced with the Burpple 1-for-1 deal. Otherwise it certainly has quite a bit of competition in the local pastry scene, with other bakeries selling similar tarts at equal or lower prices. Their bakes are still delicious though, so I’ll give them that!

Really enjoyed the taromisu - it was heaven for a yam lovers like me! The ladyfinger sponge was soft and soaked in Kahlua coffee, went great with the yam paste & yam mascarpone cream. Overall the dessert was more towards the sweeter side, but very satisfying. Using yam in tiramisu to add a twist to the classic dessert was tastefully well done!

Price tag is quite high for a small dessert like this - though it’s made much more reasonably priced with the Burpple 1-for-1 deal. Otherwise it certainly has quite a bit of competition in the local cake scene, with other shops selling similar (and possibly even larger) slices of cakes at equal or lower prices. Their bakes are still delicious though, so I’ll give them that!

The texture of the mochi muffin is quite interesting - very chewy but dense, like a cross between chewy bread and mochi. The matcha and white chocolate flavours are just average. Quite overpriced for the small size and average taste, wouldn’t buy again but it was okay just to try once, to experience a different texture and mouthfeel (don’t expect to be mind blown or anything).

We visited on a Sunday and it was fairly quiet. I like the concept of the cafe, it was very spacious and cozy. Perfect for chilling or doing some work over coffee.

Your traditional Bubur Cha Cha dessert, but with a decadent scoop of durian on top. To be honest I didn’t like the bubur cha cha itself - the coconut milk was good, there was your usual sweet potato and yam, but there was no sago, and the tapioca jellies were a little too large for my liking. It was like large chunks of sweet potato, yam and tapioca jelly all of the same size.

Didn’t enjoy this dessert too much, but I’ll probably give this place another chance and try something else next time.

The neon lights and mahjong theme is quite cute, makes it overall a pretty chill dessert place to sit at at night.

If you like lemon meringue tarts, do give their lemon meringue cake a try - the lemon meringue, lemon curd and vanilla sponge was really refreshing. The only difference between the usual tarts and this cake is that the tarts are usually much more sour - this cake was more towards the sweet side, which I (and my sweet tooth) personally preferred.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and the place wasn’t too crowded. The staff were friendly and the overall atmosphere of the cafe was warm and cozy. We used the Burpple 1-for-1 Sliced Cake deal so it made the cakes a lot more wallet-friendly.

Pistachio lovers - this is for you. The cake was dense, similar to a fruit or pound cake - but with pistachio bits embedded, adding that extra crunch. With the sweet pistachio cream all around and sour raspberry jelly in between - every bite was a burst of nutty and fruity. We enjoyed it very much. It is quite filling so do make some space in your tummy for it!

Picked a classic flavour - Pinky sorbet, which features strawberry and peach flavours in a refreshing sorbet. It was more on the sweet side, fruity and perfect for a hot day.

When we visited, many of the flavours displayed were on the fruity side, including less common ones like soursop, mixed berries, and even sour plum - so this might somewhere to check out for fruit flavour enthusiasts. They also had many standard flavours like French vanilla, chocolate, and cookies and cream.

The ice cream here lives up to its name - both scoops were truly, very creamy. We got the “Salty White Stuff” flavour, which was salted lychee calpis, and the Sea Salt Butter Biscotti flavour.

I much preferred the salty white stuff (yes) - it was a nice mix of sweet, milky and salty, but more towards a sorbet texture. Quite a unique flavour and I enjoyed it very much - it’s definitely more than its gimmicky name.

The sea salt butter biscotti’s texture was great - super smooth and creamy, but it was too gelat for me as it was just the same taste and texture for the entire ice cream. Maybe if you were a fan of Speculoos, you’d like this much more than me. I found it quite one dimensional.

The shop was quite huge with lots of seating space. It’s not far from Chinatown MRT which makes it a pretty convenient spot to drop by for ice cream. The Burpple 1-for-1 deal makes the ice cream a steal, but you have very limited flavours to choose from since you can only pick the classic flavours - which was about 1/3 of all the flavours.
