Brought my friends to try Dessert First, a dessert place in Bugis which I really liked. Would have gone to Ah Chew's, but the queue there was crazy on a Tuesday night. So... we went to Dessert First which specializes in durian desserts and soya bean. We were divided in our choices, some of us love durian to death, the others would never go near it with a ten-feet pole. Out of so many desserts I've tried here, the Taiwan Aiyu Jelly is the most refreshing of the lot, especially with a spritz of lime and a good dose of mangoes. I would still prefer the durian desserts over their mango ones though.As usual, the durian snow ice with durian ice-cream takes the crown for me. Please try it when you're there! continue reading

My girlfriend and me were looking forward to have hide ourselves in an air-conditioned place for our desserts after having steamboat at The House Of Steamboat, so we slowly walked to this outlet.It was a crowded eatery place upon reaching there.When the desserts being served to other tables, I found that the owner are using natural ingredients that were locally available such as Mango Sago With Pamelo.Since I like it's signature dish, so I ordered Durian Shaved Ice for myself and the other two for my girlfriend.Durian Shaved Ice 榴莲雪花冰 is just like Ice Kacang. The former Ice Kacang is a rainbow mountain of ice flavoured with gula manis, but Durian Shaved Ice dessert is originated from Taiwan, which I believed so...I opted for the durian shaved ice with condensed milk because it was so delicious. If you are durian lovers with fresh milk, this is a suitable dessert for you. continue reading

Wanted to hide in an air-conditioned place, I went Dessert First and on my way to have their snack. It was usually a crowded eatery, sharing with strangers was a very common thing as I and my friend was only two persons. Ordered traditional bowl of beancurd, it was cold. Silky smooth with sweetly delightful, combination was great. Enjoy the delicious mixture without worries of putting on weight, it was healthy and naturally done. $3.00 for my dessert was cheap. The staffs were asking our feedback, both of us obediently filled up the opinion form. I found it quite pleasant in general, nothing to complain about. continue reading

The weather is so hot these days that sometimes I just want to chill in aircon places only. Another great way to hide from the heat is to eat a bowl of cold dessert. In the field of desserts, one of my favourite types would be the Hong Kong style desserts.. Now I am able to find a piece of Hong Kong in Singapore. That will be along Liang Seah Street which has the three big players in the Hong Kong dessert scene: Desserts First 糖水先, Ah Chew Desserts and Ji De Chi. I observed that Desserts First is usually the most crowded, especially after dinner time.During peak hours (i.e. after dinner, lunch), sharing tables with strangers is a must if you are with friends in small groups. That's because the tables are mostly for big groups. I went during off-peak hours during a weekend afternoon and there was no crowd. Mandarin pop songs were played which made me felt like I was in Taiwan instantly.The menu is on the table. After you decide what you want, proceed to order at the cashier.If you are a durian lover like me, you must try the Durian Shaved Ice ($6, below). Either Durian Shaved Ice or the Durian Snow Ice. They used real D24 durians. Look at the top .. It's real durian fruit which was rich, sweet and pungent. Every bite delivered a robust and icy durian taste. Chomping on the shaved ice and the smooth and creamy durian - a great way to relief from the heat. However, be careful if you are eating with a Durian hater. He/She might squeal in disgust if he/she catches a whiff of that durian smell which I insist it is fragrant! The Green Tea Snow Ice with Red Beans ($5, below) was also a winner. It carried a bit of bitterness with the "just nice" amount of sweetness. The accompanying red beans were sweet and complemented the green tea well. The "snow ice" were firm yet soft and melts in the mouth, making it a refreshing treat on a hot day. The mango desserts are also their specialty. The Mango Snow Ice ($5.50, below) is my favourite! The mangoes were not overly sour but sweet. Layers of the "snow ice" were smooth and each of them were rich with the sweet and slightly sour mango taste. Mixed with the cubes of mango, it was heavenly! The accompanying nata de coco pieces were also very nice and addictive to chew on. Waffle with Nutella and Bananas with Vanilla Ice-cream ($6.50, below) was perfectly done too. The waffle was crispy and the combination of nutella sauce and bananas was excellent. The vanilla ice-cream was sweet and creamy. Atop the hot waffle, it was a delicious treat. Service speed was average and not fast, maybe due to the long preparation time needed to make the "snow ice". However, be patient and you will be rewarded A tip is to avoid dinner/lunch times as you would need to wait for some time for a seat. The portions are also very big and it's a good idea to share if you are a small-eater. Overall, we loved this place very much. This place is a must-try!For full review and more photos, please visit http://weekendeatwhatsg.blogspot.sg/2013/09/desserts-first.html continue reading

After a steamboat dinner at Bugis area, we decided to visit dessert first to satisfied our sweet tooth. The durian ice was served in a generous amount, next it was very rich and creamy. It was even topped with a scoop of durian flesh, which make this dessert so perfect. Lastly, we also had some herbal jelly to reduce the heatiness from the durian. Herbal jelly was very affordable as it cost less than $2. continue reading
