#02-170/171 Marina Square Shopping Centre
Finally, a day for indulgence after so many weeks of mugging.
I wanted to bring Hui Yi to Basil Alcove for lunch but apparently it has either closed down or is undergoing renovation. Since we were in the area, she showed me The Secret Garden which is a secluded and romantic restaurant hidden along Middle Road. Hui Yi said that the desserts are good. I want to try someday! There’s a dress code though: no slippers, tank tops, shorts etc etc.
Walking from Bugis to Marina Square, we worked up quite an appetite and went to Azabo Sabo. Despite passing its mouth-watering displays countless times, we have never dined there before. Specializing in Japanese desserts, the menu only devotes two pages to main courses. Since I don’t eat rice and none of the udon and ramen dishes caught our eyes, we decided to try their tea-time special instead.
The Hot Balls with Hokkaido Green Tea Ice Cream with Green Tea Sauce ($5.80++) look and taste like small plain doughnuts. Not being a fan of doughnuts, I find them ordinary but soft and light enough.
I like that they are neither oily nor sickeningly sweet. The ice cream has a strong green tea flavor and slight bitter taste. It would have been perfect if not for a small shred of ice in it which suggests that the ice cream was not mixed consistently.
This is the complimentary pot of green tea that comes with the hot balls. Doesn't it look pretty? Hui Yi said that the tea tastes decent enough but nothing outstanding.
