Introduction
Blackball was drawn from the idea of 'Xian Cao' being black in colour and taro 'balls'. 'Xian Cao' is a key inclusion in most traditional desserts across Taiwan. The company was founded and created by Mr. Tang in 2006 and is now one of the biggest dessert chains in Taipei with more than 20 outlets. It has also expanded to Malaysia and Singapore. continue reading

I visited Blackballs when they first opened at IMM, they had a much bigger seating area than the one I frequented at, in Bugis+. You order your dessert at the counter, and you get a ticket number, the ticket numbers are called and you get your ice cold dessert.I love the sweet potato balls so we can them as an additional topping, their grass jelly is more like gui ling gao. It is harder and starchier. But it is a very cooling dessert to be shared, or you can get an overdose of sugar by eating it yourself. They are usually quite generous with the servings, even for the drinks. I once ordered a soya milk with grass jelly and there was more grass jelly than soya milk. continue reading

If you are looking for a twist out of ordinary, you should try the desserts with wide varieties of ingredients inside.Blackball was founded by Mr Tang, who imaged the idea of “Xian Cao” being blacked and the chewable taro balls in real.I tried the BlackBall Signature and Winter Melon Tea.2 BlackBall Signature and 1 Winter Melon Tea  = $10 (promotion)Add another Winter Melon Tea = $3.20The BlackBall Signature has a mixture of yam ball, sweet potato ball, red bean, grass jelly with cream milk for your preference.I will definitely feel like trying the desserts again when I passed by  continue reading

My sister brought my mum and siblings to try Blackball and I tagged along for the ride. We ordered the Blackball Signature - Warm ($5.40), Mix and Match – Cold ($5.40) and Blackball Crushed Ice ($4.90).The Blackball Signature and Mix and Match both comes with creamer which I think is a unique addition to the dessert. It helps to sweeten the desserts besides the ingredients already present in it. For the Mix and Match I got the Ice Jelly, Pudding, Nata de Coco and Red Bean. I originally wanted to get the Grass Jelly and Fresh Milk but the cashier told me that it is already included in the dessert (not the fresh milk but have the creamer). I like the pudding cause its sweet and the ice jelly and grass jelly is very jelly-like and quite chewy. The Blackball Signature is also another great option but I least enjoyed the Blackball Crushed Ice. Didn’t have much flavour in it.I was not really impressed by the service though. When we were at the cashier, she was counting money so my sister and I waited. Then she says to go on ahead and order but when we did, I had to repeat some of the ingredients for the Mix and Match one. Secondly when we collected our items, there were only 3 spoons. We asked for 3 more and they passed 3 plastic spoons reluctantly.The small dessert shop is clad in black and white and offers a no frills dining experience. The desserts are really good and I would come back to try their drinks. Celebrity Zhang Yaodong seems to endorse the brand. continue reading

Decided to have this dessert for dinner after touring the food hall area. Had a huge lunch so I wanted something to fill the stomach without it being too sinful.There was no one in the place, but like many places in Singapore, they were advertising they were both popular and originated from Taiwan.The Taiwan actor caught my attentionThe dish presentation did not enticing via their promotional postersDecided to order their Classic Black Ball Crushed Ice. The picture differed slightly than the dish that came. It was interesting to have a bowl of grass jelly, though it's probably the first thing that disappeared. The red beans was overly sweet and I wasn't too fond of the boba. The yams and taros were decent, but the novelty wore off quickly. I'm glad to say I've tried it, but I don't think I'm going back there anytime soon unless there's 1) no line 2) i need a place to sit and chill continue reading

Blackball is never my favourite but there are having so many outlets in Singapore, hence, it becomes one of the more easily available dessert. So i went there with my friend and share the signature blackball with my friend! It costs around $5 which i think is slightly marked up. I do not like the grass jelly taste. But overall are still ok. The red bean was juicy and big. It was slightly crowded after dinner time, hence, it is always hard to get a seat there. continue reading
