Conveniently located near Bugis, you can see this dessert shop fully occupied with patrons in the evening till the closing (11pm). So in order to avoid the crowd, I went over for dessert right after lunch in the afternoon.
My friend, Nicholas and I want some durian so the dessert we ordered are all durian desserts. So if you HATE durian.. I’m sorry this food review is definitely not for you L
Here’s how their menu looks like:
Durian with Pomelo Sago (Cold)
First we ordered Durian with Pomelo Sago (Cold).
I thought it was supposed to be watery, but I have no idea why it ended up to become something like durian puree. So I was kind of disappointed! I think I’ll try out Ah Chew’s durian dessert the next time round.
And I really have to say this, the puree taste like those durian placed for a very long time. It gives out those gas-y taste and I dislike it L
The ball in the middle is made of real durian.
It was normal durian only, not as good as the one I tried few months ago. I still remember the last time I had this, it was much better.
Next we ordered this
Durian rice roll
This was slightly better. However, it was retrieved from the fridge, so the rice roll skin was a tad hard. So you probably want to leave it warm up to the room temperature for a while before putting it into your mouth.
The rice roll is generously filled with real durian puree. I thought the skin was a little thick though, but it could be because like I said, the skin was frozen in the refrigerator. Nonetheless, it was pretty good!
I would recommend to visit the dessert shop in the afternoon because there are more vacancies. If you visit in the evening, I’m pretty sure it’ll be very occupied and you’ll have to wait for an empty table.
This place is definitely not for gatherings, nor is it a place you would want to stay here for long, especially in the night. Imagine people queueing to wait for an empty seat, it wouldn’t be nice for you to hog on to the place ya? Plus, the place is very cramped when it is full, so it’s not a comfortable place for you to have a long chat either.
For dessert like this to cost more than $5, nope I don’t say it’s very worth it. The other dessert shop few shops down the same street named Ah Chew’s is probably slightly cheaper. But if you want something new and modern, you probably want to come here. Then again, I won’t say the food is worth the price because it’s quite expensive. Share a few dishes with a group of friends will be more economically smart!
