Something Sweet Dessert House – Victory8 (Closed)

(Something Sweet Dessert House had since ceased operations.)

Victory8 had definitely injected a lot of new eateries in the Sembawang neighborhood. We have previously covered Mootime, and now we are back to give Something Sweet a try.

While Mootime focuses more on ice-cream and cakes, Something Sweet offers local Chinese desserts such as Yam Paste and Pulut Hitam. It also serves waffles to cater to the ongoing craze about waffles.

(Pulut Hitam)

I was pretty torn on which to order; the Yam Paste with Gingko Nuts and Pulut Hitam; my dining partner suggested me to go for the latter. Coming in a herbal tonic bowl, it’s presentation was pretty. On one look, it’s pretty smooth and thick, with ample coconut milk. Despite so, I felt that the Pulut Hitam was pretty bland, and it could do with a bit of sweetness as well.

(Waffle with Matcha Ice-Cream)

My dining partner went for the Waffle with Matcha Ice-Cream. The menu’s description seemed plain, but the package was pretty wholesome; not only do you get a waffle with Matcha ice-cream, it comes with sliced fruits and a drizzle of maple syrup alongside a sprinkle of icing sugar. The sliced fruits were fresh; the banana was fine though the strawberry was a wee bit tart for me. Using the classic waffle batter, expect an eggy, buttery waffle that is crisp and fluffy. On the top; a Matcha ice-cream strong with its signature bitterness that should be an instant hit with matcha lovers; rich in flavour. It was indeed satisfying, and honestly would have easily hit as one of the better waffles served up here in the north.

It’s not really fair for me to make a judgement; after all having had two items of which one was a local dessert I could not say if they are indeed better with waffles. One thing is for sure however; the Pulut Hitam does need a bit of fine-tuning to work. Despite so, Something Sweet offers a great option to this part of the island which had not really seen much cafe invasion until lately, and given its menu variety, they do seem to have a potential to see crowds for they have something for everyone. We would be back some day I hope, not only just for the waffles though; I am dying to give that Yam Paste with Gingko Nuts a try!

    Hey maybe you like food with a stronger taste but a light hand with the sugar is better for all customers as not everyone like to have food with a strong taste. If you feel that it is not sweet enough you can always request for them to put a bit more coconut milk in your dessert. A gentle reminder; you can always add coconut milk into the Pulut Hitam, but once you have added too much you can’t remove it from the dessert.

      Hi Grace!

      I think you have misunderstood my intentions. Understand the fact about the differences in preferences and having less is better than having more and unable to remove it. I actually pretty much like how light the desserts went and really enjoyed them as it was. 🙂
