51 Soya Bean (Golden Mile Food Centre) (2nd post)

The beancurd craze has spread out of Old Airport Road Food Centre. Recently, Lao Ban Soya Beancurd has opened a branch at Maxwell Food Centre. While 51 Soya Bean has also opened a branch, at Golden Mile food Centre.

I was at Golden Mile Food Centre eating recently when I chanced upon 51 Soya Bean. I am guessing that the stall was recently opened as there was no crowd. Was there at 1215pm on a weekday. I sat near the stall while waiting for my chicken rice.

51 Soya Bean's Price

Cold Soya Bean Drink $1.00

Since there was no queue, we ordered the Cold Soya Bean Drink. It is quite small, not enough to qench my thirst. But it was certainty very refreshing!

After finishing my meal, there was a short queue at the stall which was cleared within minutes.

Original Cold Beancurd $1.50

The Cold Beancurd is soft, silky, smooth with jelly-like appearance. Somehow, in terms of taste it was not even on par with its (51 Soya Bean) main branch. Certainty no melt in your mouth sensation. I guess my expectation was too high. An average beancurd, do try it if you have never try such a new kind of beancurd before.

Honeymoon Dessert 满记甜品 (2nd Post)

My first post of Honeymoon Dessert can be found here.

On this second visit, I had a hard time thinking of what to eat as I had I was not won over by Honeymoon Dessert when I visited it the first time.

Banana Pancake

I ordered the Banana Pancake, if I remember correctly, it cost $2.50 or $3.50. Not fantastic and I am not really a fan of cream. Besides I felt that even if it cost $2.50, it was a too expensive (not value for money).

Menu

Mango in Vanilla Sauce with Thai Black Glutinous Rice (Cold) $4.50

One of my colleague ordered Mango in Vanilla Sauce with Thai Black Glutinous Rice. I tried it, and it was good. This is one dessert worth ordering. But for $4.50, I can eat a plate of chicken rice at a food court.

Looks like the Mango in Vanilla Sauce with Thai Black Glutinous Rice is so far the only dessert worth ordering in Honeymoon Dessert. And value for money is certainty a problem it has. I guess it has to do with the high rental at the area.

U.d.d.e.r.s (Novena)

What is the meaning of udders? Well, it is a baglike organ containing the mammary glands, characteristic of certain female mammals, such as cows, sheep, and goats. In the case of cows, it where the milk comes from. Hence, in this context, Udders is a homegrown parlour that sells ice cream. The value propositions are that the ice cream is fresh, home-made (with no preservatives), healthy, natural and original. Moreover, they are famous for their uniquely flavoured ice cream, some of which are liqueured flavoured.

Menu

Colourful and cheerful menu that is a norm at all its outlets.

This is a cow udder water dispenser. What a way to emphasis on the word udder.

They have ice cream workshops too.

Bailey’s & Bourbon (Premium Range) $3.90

Bailey’s & Bourbon is a combination of  Bailey’s Irish Cream with bourbon. Yes, it is alcoholic and is a best seller. Thought that it was abit diluted in terms of flavour.

Waffle with Mao Shan Wang Durian (Connoisseur Range) and Awesomely Chocolate (Premium Range) $9.70

The waffle at Udders taste great when combined with ice cream! Mao Shan Wang Durian needs no introduction among the locals. Really taste like mao shan wang durian and it is also their best seller. Awesomely Chocolate, dark bitter chocolate.

Waffle with Tira-miss-u (Connoisseur Range) and Earl Grey (Classic Range) $9.20

Tira-miss-u, a combination of mascapone cheese, brandy  and cognac. Has the highest liqueur content among all the ice creams. Earl Grey, very intense earl grey after taste.

You can sample all the flavours before ordering the one you like. Udders’s flavours are so unique and special. Certainty a place to come to for dessert. Both Udders and Tom Palette are among my favourites, both are home-made, fresh and natural. The main difference I would say is that Udders sells liqueur ice cream. Currently, there are 5 Udders outlets.
