I love ice cream and Cheng Tng!

However, the branch I frequent at NEX, is certainly not meeting expectations.
I tried their mango snow ice and it tasted rather bad.
The syrup tasted very artificial and far too sweet.
Other deserts served are of a smaller portion and their Cheng Tng is a little too blend in my opinion.
For the serving portions, it is definitely overpriced.

On the other hand, this place is suitable for get-together chit chat sessions over snacks.
Perhaps, it is only this branch that isn’t as good as the others.
Time to pick another dessert store!

They've got quite a number of outlets around Singapore, including Bishan and Chua Chu Kang... but I always find myself at the Hougang outlet. Every single time I'm there i have a great hangout/ catch up with my friends. It's a really great place for that too!

I personally like both their peanut and sasame paste. Really rich, thick and creamy. I've had a few before at other stores that was a total scam-- the flavour was not as strong and it was thin. I can't finish the entire bowl myself though. Halfway through the creamy goodness makes me sick instead and hence I always share one with my mum or friend.

Same goes for the Mango ice. The portions huge, I could share it with two friends. They come in other flavours as well, like matcha and strawberry. My favourite's the mango, followed by the strawberry. They give generous toppings as well!

Price is a tad on the high high side, though.

I love the branch at Choa Chu Kang.

It is the number one place I go to when I feel rich. I'm a really strange person, I keep coming back to patronize this stall even though I know the food is nothing impressive. So since it's a usual haunt, let me tell you about my favorite dishes.

This place serves good ice cream. But it's not the usual scoops and tubs, these ice creams are served in cute little containers and they are shredded, hence my affectionate term for them -- paper ice cream.

The ice cream doesn't have time to travel down your throat, it just dissolves inside your mouth. After the first few scoops it gets really tiring, so share it with a friend!

Bestselling flavors would be Strawberry and Mango. Try their pudding, my grandma apparently swears by it but I haven't personally tried.

A place for dessert lovers.

Dessert Story is where you can find affordable chinese desserts such as tangyuan (ah bo ling), sesame / almond /peanut paste, yam / pumpkin / carrot cake, herbal jelly (gui ling gao) and even snow ice.

Whenever I have a craving for sesame paste, I will always turn to Dessert Story which has many outlets island wide. You might also want to know that the different pastes can be mixed together upon request (sesame and almond goes well). I also like their mango snow ice although I find that they tend to top it off with too little mango sauce or mango fruit, hence there won't be enough to finish off all the ice with. More can be added at an additional charge though.

One problem is that some of the branches tend to have different standards. I have heard that the outlet at Kovan isn't too good, so do choose carefully which branch you patronize.

Craving for desserts while doing shopping and lazy to head towards food market from the mall? Dessert Story is there for you! Although most food market dessert stalls sell at a lower price, it is worthy to spend a bit more to enjoy a bowl of yummy dessert at a cooling and comfortable place. I love Mango Snow Ice as the ice is smooth and real fruit is added along with mango syrup. Hot and cold desserts taste good, DS did not reduce ingredients to save cost, that's why all the desserts are rich in flavour. 

DS also sells snacks like carrot cake, yam cake and more. I prefer the pumpkin cake as it is pan fried evenly, leaving a crispy outer layer, soft and a tint of sweetness on every bite. The service crews are friendly and efficient. They always clear the tables immediately after customers have left or have finished the desserts. Perhaps the cost is slightly higher and not really for budget people.
