We don’t leave a place with just one kakigori. This is kinako with a shot of matcha on the side; decent and nothing wow. K’s kinako kakigori is a lot better!

I’m so sooo behind on my blogging (because I’m eating way faster than I blog!) that I’m going to speed blog from now on. Which means minimal words ha. Here’s our 10th kakigori of the year – a beautiful purple sweet potato that’s absolutely delicious!

Brought K to my favourite sushiya — literally Sushiya! After my wonderful dinner barely a month ago, I had high expectations and didn’t leave disappointed. Almost every piece was a hit, except the chewy squid despite Chef’s superb knife skill. And this time, I requested for two unagi — one lightly glazed, the other sprinkled with shio and yuzu zest. Bliss!

We walked over from my apartment to 俺のBakery&Cafe at 9.30am and were shocked that a line was already forming for the sale of takeaway loaves at 10am. If you are dining at the cafe, you can skip the queue but full menu is only available after 10am so you still have to wait anyway. Both the tamago sando and azuki toast were tasty but we wouldn’t queue for the bread!

Can you believe Joel Robuchon is also entering the konbini ice cream market? Tried the orange chocolate bar and woah, it’s surprisingly good and not sweet at all! But for a chocolate ice cream, it’s too expensive so #haagendazsfanforever

I’ve pretty much tried all desserts from Pierre Hermé (yes I’m a fangirl!) and the #1 absolute top favourite is Dépaysé, a giant intense matcha macaron with azuki compote and citrusy lime. It’s a seasonal special so every time we see this, we don’t even think of sharing. One each, period.

Similar to the avocado shaved ice, this beautiful pumpkin kakigori is all natural sweetness and we left feeling really healthy! Talk about self-delusion haha.

Because I eat avocado for breakfast daily, I rarely want to order avocado-anything when I’m dining out. The only exception is probably avocado kakigori! I like that this place blends the fruit toppings freshly upon order and there’s barely any sugar added. In fact, it’s not even sweet at all and I wish there’s some caramel or even better — gula melaka sauce on top!

It’s easy to love this hazelnut kakigori because why not? As with the pistachio tiramisu, the layering is done beautifully and there’s never a bland mouthful.

K loves this place a lot more than I do. The ice here is better than the other kakigori shops we’ve tried so far — strands are shorter and less firmly packed. The pistachio tiramisu is a good pairing and I’m making a mental note to order the pure pistachio flavour next time!
