Dessert Story - The name pretty much tells you what they specialize at! They sell Chinese desserts such as milk pudding and tangyuan. They also sell food like zhu chang fen. The highlight of this dessert place for me, though, would be their shaved ice.

Dessert Story has quite a few unique shaved ice flavours, such as champagne grape and Milo. Each flavour comes with a topping, such as nata de coco or Milo powder. You can mix and match flavours to different toppings, although I am quite sure the cashier will be giving you weird stares if you were to ask for strawberry shaved ice with Milo powder, haha.

And it is all affordable!

My favourite shaved ice flavour is Milo, because I am an avid Milo fan. It is really cool how the shaved ice tastes like Milo after you freeze it, and it melts in your mouth so it does kind of feel like you are drinking iced Milo too! The Milo powder and condensed milk topping reminds me of the beverage Milo Dinosaur. It is just so yummy and full of flavour, and so unique because I don't think you will find anywhere else that sells shaved ice of such a flavour. Mmmm, delicious! Milo lovers MUST try this!!

Desserts Story sells a range of hot and cold, sweet and savoury chinese snacks. The most popular of which would be their Taiwanese shaved ice desserts - with flavours like green tea, milo, mango, strawberry and black sesame with fresh toppings of fruits, nata de coco and red beans. The shaved ice is comparable to the ones sold in Taiwan in terms of texture and flavour.

The warm desserts like yam paste and sesame paste are also up to standard. They're both aptly thick and smooth when it runs down your throat. The sesame paste is better than the yam paste, which is too sweet for my liking (couldn't finish it).

What I also like at desserts story is their yam, pumpkin and carrot cakes (comes in a set). They are all of adequate proportion and are right in their taste and texture. My family had to order another plate of it after one.

Service at dessert story is also fab. The aunties are very warm and friendly, striking small conversations with us while helping to clear our dishes.

Providing a wide range of cold and hot desserts and snacks, Dessert Story is a great place to enjoy refreshing desserts after a hard day at school or work.

For me, I like the milk pudding and water chestnut with egg. The milk pudding is soft and does not have a strong smell or taste of milk. The mild hint of milk in the pudding makes it a platable dessert. As for the water chestnut with egg, a choice of having it either hot or cold is provided. The cold one is preferred, especially with the hot weather in Singapore. I like the combination of crunchy water chestnut and burst of tasty sweet corn together with smooth and slightly starchy sweet soup.

Dessert Story also serves light oriental snacks like chee cheong fun and carrot cake. They are not worth purchasing though, as the taste is stale and merely heated from a packet of frozen products and served to consumers.

The prices of the desserts and snacks are a little expensive for the quality. Although Dessert Story does not the best desserts around, it serves as a good subsitute for any dessert cravings. The service crew is generally made up of matured ladies who are good-natured and cheerful.

What can be better than a bowl of dessert to end off your meal? Dessert Story is one of my few favourite places for satisfying my sweet tooth. I’m not that big on sweet stuff actually but occasionally I do have a craving and when I do, I’m picky. I eat only a few kinds and Dessert Story has almost all that desserts that I like!

There’s Mango Sago with Pomelo which is very popular. I tried a new flavor last week and it is now my new favourite! It’s the Egg Pudding with Ginger! Another one of my few choices is the white fungus with longan.

The Mango Sago is a bit too thick for my liking. I’ve tried way better mango sago before and the price is only slightly higher than Dessert Story’s. But it’s still decent and besides, it’s convenient too as there are many outlets around the island!

Egg Pudding with Ginger is available both hot and cold and both are equally good! It’s extremely smooth and soft and it simply melted in my mouth. The ginger taste is just right, not too bland and not overpowering too. The egg and ginger go well together and it’s really yummy!

The white fungus with longan is average. They put in a lot of ingredients though. The soup can be improved by making it less thick. But it’s still okay because it’s not expensive.

Dessert Story would be a nice place to have a chat over some yummy desserts but it’s usually cramped and very noisy.
