With Punggol starting to get developed as more residents are moving into the new town, there seemed to be an increase of eateries that had opened in the area.
Hidden at the side of the fishing facility at Tebing Lane, Cravings had just started operations for a few days on our day of visit. Specializing in ice-cream, desserts and coffee, it is interesting to note that Cravings seem to open till quite late into the early morning due to the lack of late night hangouts in the neighbourhood.
(Paddle Pop Cheesecake)
Tian Kee & Co seemed to have started the trend for Rainbow Cheesecakes, and Cravings have their own similar version as well; the Paddle Pop Cheesecake. While the mousse seemed smooth and the crumbly bottom was rather decent, it tasted pretty much like any other ordinary cheesecake; perhaps even lighter.
Lemon cheesecake seemed a tad zingy, and the mousse seemed to have a more jelly-like consistency than the Paddle Pop, though still smooth. Apart from that there was not much to shout about either.
Apart from cheesecakes, there is also a brownie available. While it’s chocolatey enough with walnuts inside, it’s pretty solid when we tried to the cut it even when warmed up upon order. Vanilla Ice-Cream was also pretty ordinary, though it seemed to be melting a bit too quickly.
Cravings, though new felt pretty much ordinary, and while the items were fine, they seemed to lack of anything outstanding. While Punggol may be a developing town, with so many interesting eateries moving into both Tebing Lane a mere few meters away and The Punggol Settlement, Cravings would need to come out with more daring and innovative ideas with a distinct direction to at the very least, survive.
