🍰Choc Mint Mini Rolls🌱
Freshhhh. Bit too Colgate-y. Cream filling is v overwhelming and exactly the texture of the toothpaste they give you on airplanes. Unfortunately the freshness did not extend to the cake. Chocolate flavour not detected. Not bad if you’re all outta gum, but also not my fave.
Life is short, eat dessert first.
Today I am sharing my favourite desserts from my trips to cities in the region. One man's meat is another man's poison, so what I like may not appeal to everyone. Indeed, some may wonder if I am consuming too much sugar and can end up as a potential diabetic. Yolo and indulge, but just walk off your calories or work out before your next dessert to avoid a guilt trip after your sweet snack.
Here are the sweet treats (not ranked) that sent me to dessert heaven: • Mango shaved ice from Ice Monster, Taipei (ground floor of Breeze Dept Store in Xinyi; there are stores elsewhere in Taipei too)
• Millefeuille with Strawberry Froyo from Red Mango, Seoul (Myeongdong Main Street, Level 3, diagonally opposite M Plaza).
• Fish pancake with red bean filling from Naruto Taiyaki Honpo, which has many outlets in Tokyo, Osaka, Kobe, etc.
• 'Egglet' a sweet waffle that is crispy outside and fluffy inside, served plain or with your choice of filling such as hazelnut spread, peanut butter, custard etc ~ from 'Lee Keong Kee' along King's Road, North Point, Hong Kong.
• Thai tea crepe cake from Audrey Cafe which has several locations in Bangkok, including Emquartier Mall. Their crepe cake is smothered in a dense, Thai milk tea sauce that pairs so well with the crepe cake that it outshines Lady M's classic millecrepe.
• 'Chendol' ~ an iced dessert of rich, fragrant coconut milk and strands of green bean jelly, is my must eat item on every visit to Malaysia. The most memorable chendol I had was from a pushcart hawker in Kuala Lumpur. (Sorry, I didn't have a cellphone with camera feature then.) It was the first time I saw an Indian hawker selling nothing else but the Straits Chinese chendol dessert. The bowl was heaped full of his honemade, green jelly strands with no other 'distractions' like red beans, palm seeds, sweet corn etc that other hawkers who use mass produced, rubbery, green jelly from factories add to jazz up their chendol.
• Swiss rolls filled with 'kaya' ~ a local curd-like jam made of eggs, coconut milk and sugar, from Rich & Good Cake Shop at Kandahar Street, Singapore and the ground floor of Jewel @ Changi Airport.
Here, get yourself #swissrolls that arrive in a myriad of contemporary flavours. Mine is chiffon cake rolled up up and filled with sweet potato cream and hers is filled with #nutella chocolate cream. $13 for 2 sets with #burpplebeyond. 🍰
Rain Rain Rain all day pretty much sent me straight to the kitchen. Nothing to snack on so I decided to make Swiss roll 😋
Thanks to @bakingwithmi I picked up this one from her YouTube channel.
Super easy and super quick! I added some cream and jam to add more sweetness as these are not that sweet on their own without filling for me.
