Seventh Heaven: Is this really Singapore's heaven?

J: This time round our sweet tooth brought us to Seventh Heaven where u get innovative alcoholic ice cream flavors. Upon stepping into this cafe, u can c tt it is really a very open concept where u can c the preparations of ur food through the glass windows in their kitchen. One major grouse is tt its location is really out of e way! >.<


Well, we had sampled many of their flavors n i must say tt my favorite is lychee martini which goes really well with their popular warm choc cake. It is rather light n e taste of martini is really faint.


A summary of the flavors we had sampled:
Lychee Martini: Love the taste of lychee. Light n not too sweet. Faint martini taste.
Irish Cream: Has initial caramel bailey's taste to me n a nice undescribable lingering after taste. Sis preferred this to lychee martini.
Peanut: This is e best peanut ice cream i've ever tried. Creamy peanut but not too heavy to make u feel sick n sinful after finishing it. Goes rather well with warm choc cake too.
Chocolate Whisky: This flavor is rather heavy n e whisky taste is qt strong. Gets too heavy for me after a while n i dont think it will pair well with warm choc cake.
Chocolate Espresso: I actually like this more than choc whisky bcos u can bite into the crunchy aromatic coffee beans!
Black sesame: Very ordinary. MOF's definitely better cos u can actually bite e black sesame itself.

The real highlight must be their warm chocolate cake. It's the best I've had in sg, even better than bakerzin! They took 25min to bake this warm choc cake so u gotta make sure u have e time n patience to wait but i bet its worth e wait! The cake is crusty on e outside n super soft inside! Once u dip ur spoon into it, omg e cake crumbles n e warm choc oozes out like hot lava. Really shiok when I had it together with my cold lychee martini icecream! The warm choc is not tt heavy n sweet to make u feel sick after eating for a while unlike bakerzin but its really expensive for that small portion of cake lol. $7.80 for warm choco cake with a scoop of french vanilla icecream. Gotta top up another dollar if u change e flavor of ice cream.

Lastly, like any other typical ice-cream stalls, they also sell waffles. The waffle is e crispiest i've ever tried but its v airy inside. There is literally nothing inside except e crust lol. Sis thought Gelare's waffles way better than theirs.


A: I'm so sad that Gelare is no longer in business! Sad!!
Now I'm in search for my next best waffles. >.<
I really like the Oozing warm choco cake. It really goes well either with lychee martini ice-cream or the irish cream! It's not as sweet as bakerzin warm choco cake. Will never be satisfying just to have one!
*you should order 2 next time. haha*

if you like waffles, try going U.D.D.E.R.S for their waffle with ice cream, good waffle, GREAT price, only 2 dollar to top up waffle, plus their waffles rock.

J: I've heard of this place but has yet to try it out. Will do a comparison with my no 1 waffle from sweet stones after I've tried it!

Fen said...

I agree with dead, Udders has good belgium waffles...

Oh my, I didn't know Gelare is no longer in Singapore. I realize the closure of a few outlets but I thought they are popular in Singapore. I do like their waffles too...

Hmm... The chocolate cake didn't leave quite a deep impression when I tried it the last time but I do miss their Lychee Martini ice-cream...

The other nice waffle I had was at Max Brenner, but I only tried it once and that was quite sometime back... Hopefully they are consistent... Their Iced Dark Chocolate Granite is something I will never miss whenever I visit the place =)

A - Fen:

don't worry fen! There's still gelare in orchard central! Think that's the only one left. Tue promo still on!

I went to Max Brenner for their hot chocolate before! It was fantastic. I shall go back there some time to try out their waffle!

Fen said...

Oh yah, to think that I recall seeing it when I visit there a couple of weeks ago. Love the external escalators but hate the layout of the interior... So confusing...

Hopefully, Max won't disappoint on the waffles...
