From cakes to puddings, ice-creams to tiramisus, Maccha House (抹茶館) lovingly envisions all things dessert with an unmistakable green tea twist. Originally established in Kyoto, Japan, it has ventured abroad over the past decade, entering Hong Kong, Taiwan as well as Singapore - outlet no.3 opened at Paya Lebar Quarter this year, following two others at Orchard Central (since 2012) and Suntec City Mall (since 2014). Plethora of catechin infused afters being sold aside, Maccha House's menu also features assorted Donburi bowls, Ramen/Udon options along with Japanese pasta dishes.

What knocked our socks off:

The Maccha Tiramisu (layered vanilla sponge cake ebbed against silky smooth mascarpone cream cheese, premium Morihan Uji matcha powder dusted on top) which came devised inside one petite, hollowed out wooden cube professed dreamy rich yet never overwhelmed; meanwhile some exotic bitter cavorting with sincerely saccharine underpinned the triple-stacked, chocolate chip stuffed Maccha Cheese Dorayaki (additionally glazed in Kuromitsu black syrup sauce and complemented by matcha-tinged vanilla soft serve) - suffice to say spirits were buoyed.

What didn't work out:

We didn't dig the Sizzling Maccha Brownie the least bit: vexingly rude, caliginous slab resembling a vivisection of Swamp Thing's ass cheeks fared only slightly better than regurgitated human bile tastewise. Separately, the rather generic Canapé Desserts platter summoned little satisfaction - boohoo in particular to that single wretchedly sour fruit tart and 'em chalky, bland as hell Nama chocolates.

Belle-Ville Pancake

Belle-Ville Pancake Cafe's first Singapore outpost at Bugis Junction (single corner unit located right across BHG department store since June 2018) is so cramped you will find yourself literally ducking elbows; quick eyeballing of affairs places this 25-seater no larger than 40 square metres. Still, countless hipster diners have been sold on its whimsically crafted, brilliant blue accented interiors .......

Nayuki

Folks might be forgiven for becoming ridiculously besotted with those dainty, ornate euro-style bakes trotted out by Nayuki (奈雪の茶), an ultra popular cafeteria concept originally birthed in Shenzhen, China four years ago which has since grown to over 180 stores across 22 Chinese cities and recently even made inroads into Singapore under a joint venture with BreadTalk Group.......
