The rich smell of waffles and the buzzing sound of the espresso machines are the first thing you notice when you first step into SUENO. The Muslim-owned café ice cream café opened in 888 Plaza recently, serving mainly desserts including waffles and ice cream.
Their signature Gelato Set ($11.80) includes a single waffle, topped with a huge scoop of gelato ice cream and a colourful mocktail on the side. The waffles are slightly crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside, and are served with chocolate sauce and crushed cookies sprinkled around it.
The sweet cookies and cream-flavoured ice cream had cookie bits mixed in as well, giving it an extra touch and a bonus crunch. The meal also came with a mocktail on the side, served in a mini glass pitcher with mint leaves, making the drink more refreshed when you blend it with wild berry syrup. With a set that affordable and worthy, don’t be surprised if you make a second trip anytime soon after too!

What’s a cake that looks like mud called? A Mud Tart! The star of the menu priced at $5.60 is creatively crafted to replicate an actual flowerpot. Covered by a layer of Oreo crust that is the “mud”, a creamy and velvety cheesecake lies underneath the bed of crust. Sandwiched between the cheesecake layers is a sweet and rich cookie butter, doubling the happiness this dessert brings to the table and one’s taste buds.

Ever imagined tasting your favourite dessert as an ice cream flavour? Well at Holy Cow Creamery, they made the impossible, possible! The brains behind this café completely transformed the popular Crème Brûlée dessert into one of their premium ice cream flavours – A dream come true for both dessert and ice cream lovers!
The Crème Brûlée ice cream has a slight saltiness due to the caramelisation, but that just makes it a perfect match to the classic golden waffles it comes with. Golden and with a crispy outer crust, the waffles are still soft and airy on the inside and melts in your mouth when with the ice cream.
The whole dessert-mix-ice cream with waffles are only priced at $4.50, and you only have to top up $1 for an additional scoop of a premium flavoured ice cream. That’s as simple as enjoying two desserts for the price of one! If you want to top up other non-premium flavours, it’s an additional $3.50.
