2. Pastries and drinks from dal.komm COFFEE
Hailing from Korea, this café is famous for being the filming location for a few Korean dramas like Descendants of the Sun and Goblin: The Lonely and Great God. ‘Dal’ means sweet in Korean so it comes as no surprise that there are a couple of sweet treats that you absolutely have to try at dal.komm COFFEE!
Order one of their signature cruffins and enjoy the flaky layers of a croissant in muffin form.
Their signature cruffins (a cross between a croissant and a muffin) is a crowd favourite amongst those who frequent the café. Through the layers of airy whipped cream, you’ll find a generous scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream hidden within the warm, crisp and buttery layers of this delicate pastry.
Quench your thirst with this Strawberry Cube drink.
If you’re looking for something to drink instead, do not miss out on their Strawberry Cube! The sweet strawberries combined with the smoothness from the milk makes this the perfect drink to quench your sweet cravings and thirst in this humid weather!
3. Hokkaido Millecrepe from Yayoi
Enjoy this lovely dessert from just $6.90.
A mille crepe cake is made with many layers of crepes stacked on top each other and sandwiched between freshly made cream, custard or sauces. You’ll be surprised to know that unlike regular cakes, this dessert has a light flavour that’s not too sweet.
Yayoi chooses to pair their lovely millecrepe with matcha ice cream and azuki (red beans) that come straight from Hokkaido. The bitter taste of the matcha and sweet azuki pairs really well with the light yet flavourful Hokkaido millecrepe. Make sure to snap a picture for the gram before the ice cream melts!
4. Decadent chocolate desserts from Chocolate Origin

7. Mango Strawberry Snow Ice from Mei Heong Yuen Dessert
Beat the Singapore heat with this icy treat.
Colourful and eye catching, this dessert will be a great conversation topic when added to your Instagram feed. At first glance, you might mistake this for a regular ice kachang. But unlike the hard and crunchy texture of a typical ice kacang, this ice is so finely shaved that it instantly melts in your mouth!
The combination of sweet mango and tangy strawberries is the perfect thirst quencher on a hot day.
8. Lemon Sunset from KeCha
Watch the colours change in this colourful drink.
If you’re active on social media, you’ll know what butterfly pea tea is. For those who might not be as familiar, butterfly pea tea is a blue herbal tea that turns purple when something acidic, like lemon juice, is added to it.
KeCha uses this to create their mesmerising Lemon Sunset drink. The layers are created with a combination of butterfly pea tea, kumquat lemon and roselle tea which comes in a reusable bottle. Yay for eco-friendliness!
For October only, get both the Lemon Sunset and Summer Peach drinks at just $7.90 for 2.
