We were in the mood for some dessert after our dinner at Manhattan Fish Market at The Central, and almost immediately I suggested we try out something new from Nectarie le Dessert Patisserie in Clarke Quay. I think I've developed a habit of eating ice-cream ever since my trip to Hong Kong, where I was eating Ben & Jerry's, Haagan Dazs (Bailey's flavour) and some Milo ice-cream cones every day. I need to kick this craving soon because my tummy can no longer be hidden under jackets as it was in Hong Kong (haha), and I don't think I should accomodate myself by buying even larger trousers! But, I digress.
Orange Sorbet | Bailey's Ice-Cream: 6.5/10
Pardon for the dark shots, I couldn't take a decent shot with the flash on, so I had to make do with these. Kimberly didn't really like her orange sorbet because she found it a tad too sour for her liking. As for me, the Bailey's was okay, but not as strong as the one I had in Hong Kong's Haagan Dazs (see picture below).
Strudle with Wild Strawberries: 8.5/10
Daphne had this, and I brought it straight into the shop (the waitresses were looking at me puzzled) to take a better picture under better lighting conditions. Much better right? On taste, it was quite good actually. The pastry wasn't too dry but it did crumble at every poke of the fork, and it had a buttery taste to it that I quite like. The custard was very cool and smooth, and went along great with the pastry.
Sweet and polite.
About $4 for a scoop of ice-cream,
$6.90 for the strudle.
