Dessert First: V good desserts!

I was out with a group of friends and I suggested that we head to this dessert place for dessert as I've been reading really good comments about this place! Indeed it lived up to the hype!

Here's what we had! We kinda um over-ordered for 6 of us after our lunch but us being foodies, managed to finish it!

In general: their snow ice texture is really good! I love that it doesnt melt quickly and that its smooth + no annoying ice crystals inside! I really like the texture :)

Green Tea Snow Ice with Red Bean

The green tea taste is not VERY strong but it is certainly discernible which isnt the case in some places. I like the red bean that comes along w it! Basically a classic match done well! My non-durian eating friends were really happy with this order too as they shared this amongst themselves and we just took some bites of it. 4.4/5

Durian Snow Ice

Now the durian-eating people first ordered this and we were like OMGGGG THE DURIANNNNN~~~ and we all gave the super contented look after eating one mouthful of it. No kidding, no exaggeration. Durian lovers, you'll love this! The fresh durian pulp is so strong potent and yummy :) I actually love ice cold durian more than just eating the durian like that haha. 4.6/5 This doesnt get top marks because the durian dessert featured below is better!

Mango Snow ice

This was good too! I'm sorry, I kinda forgot if this was snow/shaved ice! Am assuming snow though haha. Mango was rather sweet and definitely generous w the toppings!!! Syrup used isnt too sweet either so overall it was good :) 4.4/5

Peanut Tang Yuan
Can't rmb how much this is & its not on their website, sorry!

Tang yuan was so-so, quite normal this one but of course people would still order it when the craving strikes and theirs is not bad I must say. 3.5/5

Durian Shaved Ice

We were so enamoured with the durian snow ice that we decided to order another durian-related dessert to share amongst the 3 durian-eating us! Boy were we glad we ordered this! This had a much stronger durian taste that perfumed every bite and was more potent than the snow ice! This was the consensus amongst us and we kinda wished we ordered this first! Dont worry if you feel that the shaved ice texture will be less smooth than the snow ice because somehow, Dessert First manages to make it really smooth too! This one doesnt melt v fast either so no worries about toppling and all. But its quite a skill to start eating this haha. Durian lovers, DO ORDER THIS!!! 4.8/5

Glutinous Rice Balls with Black Sesame Filling & Crushed Peanuts
Can't rmb how much this is & its not on their website, sorry!

I loved the crushed peanuts here and how this dish combines my love for peanut & black sesame! The glutinous rice balls are not sticky at all and the filling is rather adequate. That black sesame paste just oozing out slowly when you take a bite + the crunchy fragrant peanuts, mmm if you love both these ingredients then you'll likely like this dish!!

I think we spent about $24 here or something so per pax was $4! This is very good and affordable place for you and your friends to share dessert! I personally feel that it is better than Ah Chew & Ji De Chi! Like much much better!! We're planning to go back for waffles + durian cos the waffles look really crispy and we're in love with their durian :)
