记得吃 Ji De Chi

with one comment

记得吃‘s latest dessert creations are Taiwan’s famous snow ice. 记得吃 has been a rather popular dessert place in the Bugis area. Having tried Summerfrost’s and Mei Heong Yuen’s versions, we were hoping to find something better at 记得吃.

Mango Strawberry Flavour Snowy Ice

Mango Strawberry Flavour Snowy Ice

We ordered the Mango Strawberry Flavour Snowy Ice ($6), which came with Mango and Strawberry snow ice, drizzled with passionfruit sauce, topped with slices of strawberries and mangoes, lychee pearls and mini rice balls. On first look, it seems like the serving was slightly smaller. The snow ice was towards the bland side, with a subtle milky taste. If we were clueless about the flavour of the snow ice and did a blind test, we would have never guessed that we were having mango and strawberry snow ice. It was more like original milky flavour. The mini rice balls were chewy, but with a strong floury taste. The lychee pearls had much more flavours than the snow ice itself. Each pearl, when bitten into, exploded out lychee flavoured syrup. Though the description mentioned the adding of passionfruit sauce, there wasn’t a slightest tinge of passionfruit flavour in our snow ice.

With mangoes, strawberries, lychee and passionfruit, this snowy ice was supposed to be colourful and decorative not only looks, but in taste as well. Sadly, 记得吃’s Mango Strawberry Flavour Snow Ice was sorely lacking in flavours. We were once again disappointed by the mediocre standards of snow ice in Singapore.
