Non Entrée Desserts, Singapore

November 14, 2016

If you have a sweet tooth like me, then you need to visit Non Entrée Desserts in Singapore.

So what makes Non Entrée Desserts unique and warrant a visit from any dessert fans? For me, it’s the surprise you get from the very creative and fun menu selections. Think local flair meets gourmet European desserts. Most importantly, everything is not what it seems.

Many of their items are fashioned to take the inspiration and appearance of local Singaporean delights such as Bak Chor Mee (Minced Pork  and Fish ball Noodles) or the traditional breakfast set of half boiled eggs and kaya toasts you get at local coffeeshops. The big surprises comes when everything you thought savoury are actually desserts.

For their ‘Bak Chor Mee’, the noodles are made of mango strands while fishballs are actually balls of coconut parfait with the ‘spicy chilli sauce’ being raspberry puree. This dessert could pass off as the actual local dish visually and it is when you taste them that you come to realise they are desserts.

The breakfast sets of ‘hard boil eggs and kaya toasts’ is another dessert that can easily fooled you in its appearance. Crack open one of the ‘eggs’ and you taste delightful coconut panna cotta as egg whites with a soft mango puree egg yolk. The kaya inbetween the toast is also parfait which elevates this local jam to gourmet status.

I also tried the innovative ‘Exotic Rubber Ducky’ which is as cute as the name suggests. When served, you are presented with a bright yellow ‘rubber duckie’ sitting in a bubble bath, which looked too adorable to be eaten. To reinforce the cuteness, a small patch of bubbles on its head is sure to get good giggles. When you finally bear to dig in, you will taste the delicious flavours of pineapple and passion fruit sorbet poured over a bed of sago pearls, mango puree and lemongrass foam.

Besides the 3 selections on their menu, there are many other interesting desserts awaiting to surprise. The cafe’s decor is as eclectic as the menu, with an eye catching wall mural and a bright yellow exterior to greet the guests. Throw in bits of retro local Singaporean memorabilia and you get a cool hippie haunt perfect for any leisurely weekend afternoons.

Love the new meets old theme of the cafe. Colonial floor tiles, quirky wall murals with retro memorabilia takes you back in time and evokes a local Singapore flavour. The playfully coloured rattan chairs are highly ‘instagrammable’ props. From an instagram perspective, only seatings near the shop front provide better natural lighting for photography.

Flavour  ★★★★
Surprises and creativity go hand in hand with top notch flavours to match. What’s more to pick at? Probably the only 'complain' is if only less people know about this gem of a dessert cafe, the cool local themed desserts will not sell out so fast each day!

Pricing ★★★
Not exactly cheap but yet not unaffordable. Prices in the range of SGD15 - 20. But the quality is there to match.
