Media Tasting at Creamery

In celebration of Singapore’s 53rd year of independence, Creamery Boutique Ice Creams has launched 2 new desserts that will trigger your tastebuds!

creamery-Ondeh Ondeh Cookie with Butter Scotch

The Ondeh Ondeh Cookie with Butter Scotch Ice Cream (S$8.90, suggested pairing with Milo Dinosaur Ice Cream), brings back a taste familiar to all. The flavour of the Ondeh Ondeh was so perfectly recreated in the form of their ever tasty cookie, made better with Gula Melaka sauce and freshly grated coconut. Every spoonful was so heart warming, with the soft Ondeh Ondeh cookie melting in the mouth, pairing perfectly with the Butter Scotch Ice Cream. This dessert was not too sweet to enjoy, and it definitely will be loved by both the young and old.

creamery-Chilli Crab Lava Cookie with Baby Milk Ice Cream

If you’re feeling adventurous with your tastebuds, the Chilli Crab Lava Cookie with Baby Milk Ice Cream (S$10.90, suggested pairing with Brit Pop Bacon & Eggs Ice Cream) is the one for you. A chewy brownie filled with Chilli Crab gravy, a unique mixture of sweet chocolate and spicy chilli lava. Featuring the first ever savoury lava cookie, the Chilli Crab gravy was really on point. Every spoonful packs a punch, this savoury dessert is definitely worth a try. This is recommended for sharing as dessert might get jelat, and this is also not for those who cannot take spicy food.

Desserts available between 14th July to 9th August (Ondeh Ondeh) and 9th August to 31st August (Chilli Crab).

Media Tasting at Yum Cha


Yum Cha has introduced two new creation to celebrate the Nation’s birthday; Bak Kut Teh Xiao Long Bao and Black Garlic Har Kow. The minced pork in xiao long bao is soaked in the goodness of bak kut teh broth. The broth is simmered many hours of pork ribs with pepper, garlic and assorted herbs. Black garlic is known for cancer fighting and antioxidant properties. The black garlic ha kau has infused in the goodness of black garlic in crunchy prawns all wrapped in squid ink skin. I can taste the fragrance of black garlic in every dumpling and would have enjoyed more if the squid ink skin is thinner especially the edges.

Available at all Yum Cha Outlets from 1st July to 30th September 2018.

Bak Kut Teh Xiao Long Bao at S$5.80/3pcs and Black Garlic Ha Kau at S$6.20/ 3 pcs.
