I confess. Ever since I've become an active food blogger, I've developed a habit. After every and any meal, I would crave for something sweet to complete it - chocolates, ice-cream, cakes, you name it and I want it. It just doesn't feel right if I just go for a main course and wait up till the next meal. Certainly not a habit to have if you're watching your waistline (girls meanwhile tell me they have a special "extra" stomach for desserts), but if it makes me happy, I'll have it my way please :)
So what happens if you have a sweet craving after a meal? For starters, find a fellow sweet-toothed friend. Elaine here is one of them.
Next: find a comfortable place. It gets more interesting if it's difficult to find. As Elaine said, it makes eating desserts even more satisfying. I couldn't agree more! Imagine our delight at seeing Item No.5, especially when we've walked for more than fiften minutes in the scorching sun in search of this little hideout.
Kith Café used to have a larger range of ice-cream flavours that you can pick from, but not anymore it seems, and much to our disappointment. They merely told us the flavours on offer over the counter - french vanilla, chocolate, hazelnut and something else I couldn't quite remember - certainly not as unique as those we've read online like pistachio, milk tea or honey chamomile! Wonder what happened to the ice-cream fridge.
I indulged happily in the Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake, something the both of us noticed almost immediately as our eyes scanned through the chalkboard. It was good, you could taste both the chocolate and the peanut butter, but boy was it thick and awesomely sweet. Elaine meanwhile settled for the French Vanilla Ice-Cream, "with vanilla beans!" she would add, and for good reason. Vanilla ice-cream would never really be vanilla ice-cream without these beans, which gives the ice-cream its full flavour and (if you're discerning enough) it's fragrance.
Very friendly. There's a homely, cosy feeling to this place. Kith Café is definitely one of the places that I would want to return to, in part because the brunch and lunch menu looks pretty promising and reviews online have been quite encouraging. The only mystery left to uncover is their missing ice-cream fridge.
$6.50 for a regular milkshake
$3.00 for a small-sized ice-cream cup
