Kiss the Tiramisu
Popular Korean dessert shop, Kiss The Tiramisu, recently opened its doors in mid-October, at Orchard Gateway. This elegant soft serve combines the decadence of the popular Italian dessert, tiramisu with soft creamy vanilla ice cream. The dessert is served in a glass with gold decals, with layers of soft serve, mascarpone cheese, cookie bits, coffee liquor and more soft serve. Finally, finished off with a generous dusting of cocoa powder and chocolate shavings. Two other alternative flavours are also available at this outlet, banana and berries. #01-15,Orchard Gateway, 277 Orchard Road.
Hailing from USA, Yogurtland has finally reached the sunny shores of Singapore. With over 200 flavour selections of frozen yoghurt, you’ll surely be spoilt for choice. Expect to see rotating flavours every three weeks at the brightly lit Suntec City outlet, and eight flavours are offered each time out of their large array. Yoghurt prices start from $3.00 per 100g, with a delightful topping bar filled with both healthy and indulgent options such as fresh fruits, nuts, a variety of chocolates, cookies, and delicious syrups. #B1-165/166, Fountain Court, Suntec City Mall, 3 Temasek Boulevard.
Want your ice cream and yoghurt fix at the same time? Kokopanda’s the place to be. There are 3 different soft serves: Koko Black Yogo–a black yoghurt made from roasted coconut husks that contain an edible charcoal that aids in digestion and detox, Koko White Cremo–a white, creamy soft serve made using Korean milk for a silky texture. The signature Koko Twisto is a monochrome medley between the two, with the richness of the ice cream balancing perfectly with the subtle tartness of the yoghurt. Delectable toppings include jelly pearls, rice grain granola and premium dried fruits from Korea such as snow pear, Jeju tangerines and strawberries. They also have a selection of drinks like coconut water with chia seeds, fruit vinegar and enzyme drinks (great for digestion!) and various teas. #B2-60 Plaza Singapura, 68 Orchard Road.
