The vibe: Parked right beside Burger Bench & Bar in Orchard Cineleisure, they’ve clearly got the right feel for the crowd and location. It’s less about the décor and more about serving up yummy, fuss-free desserts.
The food: With a whopping 80 desserts available, you can take your pick from crème brûlée ($4.80), black sesame ice cream with strawberries in a young coconut ($7.80) and dark chocolate pudding with peanuts ($5.60). Traditional Chinese sweet soups including papaya and white fungus in almond cream ($5.20) and walnut and black sesame cream (from $3) are also on offer. Also made in-house is the daifuku, in flavors such as mango, strawberry, matcha and D24 durian (all $3.50 for two pieces, except
