It’s been a few months since my last Ladurée and while in Singapore, a trip to the Ladurée in Takashimaya was in order.
I loved the Sakura special I had during Sakura season in Tokyo so when I saw they had a special 24K Gold Leaf macaron I bought it. And surprise surprise it was only SGD7.90!
It was surprisingly chocolately. Gold leaf doesn’t really have a flavour but it was unique!
The tea-based Marine Antoinette wasn’t my favourite but the Rose-Lemon was tasty. Nice contrast between the sharp lemon and soft rose flavour.
On the other side of the dessert spectrum we have Ah Chew’s Desserts, a traditional Chinese tong sui or dessert place. It’s not my first time and it left such a good impression I made two visits there during my trip!
It was a 5 minute walk away from Oasia hotel and I didn’t even have to walk in the scorching heat thanks to the underground passage. So if you’re coming via MRT you don’t have to walk very far.
This being the afternoon, my Singaporean friend and I were both sweating and in need of some icy refreshment. I chose the Aloe Vera jelly with Strawberry (SGD4) which… Mmm. SO refreshing. I’m a fan of Aloe Vera jelly, and the chopped strawberries and ice were perfect for the heat.
