Mashmallow Tree is a cafe situated below a HDB block, conveniently located just across the road from Telok Blangah MRT. It's really much smaller than I thought. Overall, a nice cozy place with a vintage touch. I wanted to come here for dinner, only to realise that they only serve desserts and cakes. Well, who say we cant have dessert first followed by dinner? =p Waffles with ice-cream, which also came with mashmallow pop (toasted mashmallow)Whenever I go for a barbecue session, mashmallow is a must buy item! I love to toast my mashmallow such that it becomes crispy golden on the outside and soft & sticky inside. Many times the mashmallow will melt inside before the outside get toasted enough to achieve the golden brown skin. Not easy to make and so it's pretty exciting for me to know there's a cafe that sell "ready to eat" toasted mashmallow. But hor, I think here, the mash mallow were not toasted enough for my liking. Waffles were pretty norm too. SmoresThe name attracted me and so I made an other for it.Essentially, this was just toasted mashmallow sandwiched between 2 pieces of biscuits, topped with whipped cream and colourful sprinkles. A very simple "dish" that can be DIY yourself easily. Not really worth it, if you ask me for my opinion. Somemore, the biscuits a bit "la hong". =(I lost my receipt and couldnt comment much on the pricing. Overall, dessert here was just too normal for me to revisit. Ok, where is the next dessert place to try?? =pClick on http://fun-hideout.blogspot.sg/2013/07/the-marshmallow-tree.html to read more! ♥ ♥ ♥ continue reading
Decided to visit The Marshmallow Tree for tea on one of the sunday afternoon with my chill buddy. Came across this cute cafe while googling online for some cafe inspirations. I would say this was quite a hidden gem located below the block of HDB flats at Telok Blangah district. Its rather quiet for a Sunday but i guess that is also what makes the cafe comfy for a nice chill out place. I can really sit and watch the world go by without too much ongoing bustling. The cafe is decorated with mostly wooden furniture, wooden swing, wooden table, with sofa seats, a chalkboard wall and a grass carpet. Not forgetting a domokun! A very garden-y with a touch of modern from decorations like the European lampost!The sweet treats there is pretty awesome too! Ordered their light rose aroma and taste, yet the whole taste is not overpower by the caffeine. Personally pretty like the rose latte. And it all came with a roasted marshmallow! Like those you BBQ it under the charcoal! Melts in your mouth!We also ordered a macaroon and one of their pie tart. Both the desserts are pretty awesome and prices are comparable to other dessert cafes. This pie-tart must eat it warm. Its like a mixture layers of cookie, brownie and marshmallow drizzled with chocolate sauce. Chewy soft mouthfeel! Heavens for me! If it turns cold, you can request for them to warm it up for you again! Cause it will be pretty dry and hard. This pie-tart is one of the more unique sweet treats that worth a try! All in all, pretty nice surrounding and friendly service! continue reading
The ambience here is very relax and comfortable. Especially when you see the giant swing and the giant plush Domo. This is the top choice for chilling out for a mid day or end of day dessert.We had the lava cake and it's really wonderful. My wife loved it so much that we came back for this all the time. They also serve a marshmallow for each drink ordered.Location wise can be slightly out of the way but the good thing is that they are right beside a MRT station. continue reading

Situated in a HDB block below Telok Blangah, this place is well-decorated with different types of seatings and to the young at heart.Initially I thought the Bandung Latte was a caffeinated drink, until the server told me it wasn't. Still, this was a very nice drink. With the correct amount of steamed milk, vanilla and rose syrup added, it feels sweet and milky enough. The only downside to this is that I felt that it was rather pricey. Bandung LatteThe Macaron S'mores is also something unique to order here. The smores, which is essentially a marshmallow in between 2 macaron shells and smothered with the sauce of your liking (I chose Nutella). The smores burst upon the first mouthful. The marshmallows were soft and the Nutella made it feel more enriching. The shells were rather hard to chew on though. Macaron S'moresIf you live nearby Telok Blangah, why not give this place a visit? I will find myself being here if I'm around the area again (I feel like trying the waffles!) continue reading
Characterised by the marshmallow-on-sticks they give with every drink ordered, it’s becoming a gimmick that drew people in, including myself, just to satisfy that craving of a roasted marshmallow at typical BBQ sessions.Conveniently located across the street from Telok Blangah MRT station, it’s an overhead bridge away, and you’d just have to walk to the end of the stretch passing by those old school shops. Be prepared to wait around for sets though or to share the communal table as it’s a really small space with only about 20 seats or so.Lemon Meringue Pie - S$4.80/-I’m still on the hunt for good lemon meringue tarts, and this never fails to attract me with its pretty appearance. A tad disappointing though, with the meringue being too heavy and the lemon curd tasted a tad too sharp, greeted with a sharp tang then overwhelmed with sweetness after that. The only consolation was the crispy base to go with the soft insides.Giving in to the gimmick, I’d ordered a rose latte just to get the roasted marshmallow. Perfectly roasted to give a warm and gooey inside, while remaining crisp on the outside, this doesn’t get to enjoy much camera-time. Have it while it’s still hot!Rose Latte ($4.50)The rose latte that came was far from what I’d expected. Having tried rose lattes elsewhere, I was expected a usual latte infused with rose flavour. Astonished to see a pink drink approaching us, it was worse to find that it tasted just like Bandung (Rose syrup). The only difference was this was served warm and on the milkier side. Not a very pleasant surprise for me while expecting coffee for a little perk-me-up, though some may like it for a caffeine-free and slightly sweet drink.Waffle Condenseé ($5)This is not for the faint-hearted! Waffles drizzled with condensed milk sounds sinful enough, then topped with milo powder? For those who’re fans of milo dinosaur, this would probably sit well with you as some might not enjoy the overwhelming sweetness of it. I would have preferred the waffles to be slightly crispier so that the condensed milk can melt into it. This was just a pretty soggy piece that wasn’t all that impressive, except with the heavily fattening combination! This place didn’t quite manage to impress, with its rather cramped and uncomfortable seating. We managed to get one of the private tables instead of the long communal table in the middle and found it uneasy to keep bending down to eat, that it would probably have been better if we’d sat on the floor. The desserts weren’t exactly the kind to bring me back either, unless I have the craving for marshmallows. continue reading
