The Market Grill – An American Diner That Serves Amazing Wagyu Steaks And Super Fresh Lobster

James Chan

The Market Grill

The Market Grill might be familiar to many along Telok Ayer Street as they’ve been around for many years. Meaning, they’re definitely doing something right. Designed like an “All American Diner”, The Market Grill exudes a casual atmosphere that serves honest and generous portions of food.

The Food

The secret behind their success? Definitely their charbroiler that utilizes charcoal to grill their meats. This gives their awesome wagyu steaks that nice smoky flavour and locks in the juiciness of the meat while possessing a well-cooked crusty exterior.

the market grill farmers hash

Farmer’s Hash, $24

Sweet Potato, Potato, Farmer’s Sausage, Caramelized Onion, Beans And Poached Egg.

The egg was beautifully cooked and after bursting that yolk, all that creamy goodness just spread out evenly throughout the dish. The portion was extremely generous but I honestly feel the price is a little steep, just a little.

 the market grill lobster benedict

Lobster Benedict, $32 / Salmon Benedict, $18

Poached Eggs, Hollandaise Sauce, Capers, Mixed Salad And House Dressing

THEY USE REAL LOBSTER MEAT! And it’s super sweet and fresh too! For $32? Now this is definitely value-for-money.

For its Salmon counterpart, they cure the salmon in house. This results in a less salty smoked salmon compared to what’s readily available in the market.

the market grill lobster roll

Lobster Roll, $52

Whole Lobster Deshelled with herbed pommery mayo mounted on a toasted brioche roll, topped with tobiko

This is definitely one of the stars of The Market Grill. They use a super fresh 500g (on average) whole lobster. The tobiko gives an added texture and there’s hints of mustard in every bite.

I’m also told that when it comes to lobster rolls, The Market Grill are the pioneers in Singapore and seeing as how long they’ve been around, I believe them.

Wagyu Tri Tip 200g / 300g , $49 / $65

Grain fed. Red Wine Jus Served With Onion Confit And Mash Potato

Their meats are all imported from Australia and definitely a MUST TRY. It’s so juicy and tender that you can even eat it without the red wine sauce! (Of course, with the red wine sauce, it just elevated the awesomeness of this dish). Like I mentioned above, the trick is their charbroil grill.

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

Yes for two reasons. The lobster and the steak. They’re reasonably priced for premium ingredients (especially that live lobster) and they taste so damn good! I would come back over and over again for sure!

The Irish Hybrid Duck @ Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke Is A Definite Treat For The Stomach

James Chan

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke

Keisuke Takeda, the celebrity chef who has opened numerous Japanese eateries here in Singapore, strikes once again with Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke at Holland Village, a hybrid duck ramen store (the first of its kind).

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke kyoto stairs

It’s located on the 2nd floor and whilst climbing up the stairs, you sort of feel like you’re being transported to the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto with numerous red vertical pillars guiding your accent.

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke free beansprouts and eggs

The Food

Free beansprouts and hard boil eggs? Are they appealing to the Kiasu Singaporean in me? If so, it worked. I only had a little bit though.

There are six ramen offerings: Rich Duck Broth, Clear Duck Broth, Miso Duck Broth, Spicy Miso Duck Broth, Tsukemen (Dipping Noodles) and Maze Soba (Dry Ramen). If you’re more a rice person, there are several Duck Donburi options to choose from too.

We ordered a Clear Duck Broth Ramen, a Spicy Miso Duck Broth Ramen and a Kamo Wasabi Gohan (Marinated Wasabi Duck Rice). One thing is clear throughout all three dishes: The DUCK is Ducking Good! It’s tender, fatty and perhaps just a wee bit gamey but that’s okay! Suddenly all the duck rice stores in Singapore pale in comparison after eating this Irish Hybrid Duck.

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke spicy miso duck ramen special

(Spicy Miso) Hybrid Duck Ramen Special, $21.50

Comes with a flavored egg, meatballs and a large piece of seaweed. I’ll be completely honest. I did not like the ramen at all. The broth was too rich and thick to the point that I could not finish my meal (not to mention being extremely salty) I found myself picking the duck meat slices and ensuring I ate every piece though.

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke clear broth duck ramen special

(Clear Broth) Hybrid Duck Ramen Special, $19.50

Likewise for this, even though it was a clear broth, it was hard to go down. Quite the disappointment.

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke kamo wasabi gohan

Kamo Wasabi Gohan, $8.90

Now this was the saving grace of the day. It may be a small bowl but there’s generous portions of that amazing duck so that you’ll always get some duck with every spoonful of rice. Also, who knew wasabi and duck could go so well together? Keisuke Takeda did. Hats off to you sir!

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke worth it?

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

The ramen. No. The rice? Definitely. They should have a duck only option. Probably a super sinful meal offering but SO WORTH IT! Oh but the rice bowls are really small so perhaps you might want to try their Kamo Ju ($29.90), basically a duck bento. I’m going to try it on my next visit.

The Wine Buffet At Winederlust Is Something You Have To Try

James Chan

Winederlust

Winederlust is a new wine bistro located at Wanderlust, a beautiful boutique hotel along Dickson Road. Housing over 300 different brands of wine from all over the world, the inner alcoholic in you will be spoilt for choice.

With respect to pricing, I had assurance during my brief tour of the place that their bottles are well below normal retail selling price. What’s more, if you decide that you want to da pao (takeaway) wines instead of drinking at Winederlust, you pay $10 less.

winederlust wine buffet

The Wine Buffet

The crux of the matter that I would like to highlight would be their wine buffet. Available every Saturday and Sunday, you pay $48++ for 2 hours free flow of up to 3 different wines. If you don’t have a clue as to what to choose, feel free to ask any of the knowledgeable staff for assistance.

To top it all off, what seals the deal for me would be the food. For an additional $10, you can enjoy and pair selected Chef’s Creations with your wines. JUST $10 for the normal portion!

winederlust tuna

Tuna Tataki Chimichanga, $14 a la carte or $10 with wine buffet

Corn Tostadas, Onion Avocado Sesame Tabbouleh

Seafood and white wine is a no brainer. Senior sommelier, Amir Solay suggested pairing this dish with a Pagos (a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc) and who am I to question a man with over 20 years of experience?

The tuna (sourced from the shores of Japan) was beautifully seared on the outside and extremely fresh. The pairing of the light and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc was perfect for this appetizer.

 winederlust cheese salad

Caprese Mozzarella Salad, $12 a la carte or $10 with wine buffet

Buffalo Mozzarella, Heirloom Tomato, Smoke Fermented Beans

This dish was paired with Pagos, the same Sauvignon Blanc I had with the Tuna. The fermented beans (tempeh) and the mozzarella is a little fatty and leans more on the rich spectrum. The Pagos is perfect to wash away said fattiness and gelat-ness with its light acidity.

On that note, I’ve never had such a tasty and tender tempeh before! I’m used to the hard nonsense I get at Ayam Penyet stores. So you can imagine how surprised I was after my first bite.

winederlust sous vide pork belly

Sous Vide 12 Hours Pork Belly, $20 a la carte or $10 with wine buffet

Braised Lima Beans, Grated Daikon, Pork Jus

Moving on to their mains, this dish was paired with a French Cabernet Sauvignon, a much heavier red wine. The Sous Vide Pork Belly is a heavy dish so pairing it with a heavier, full bodied wine provides the palate with a sense of equilibrium.

Wow. The pork belly was superb! Loved how the fats melted in my mouth and how tender the meat was. The element that I absolutely went crazy over was the pork crackling. It was crispy but not over the top kind of crispy (like Chicharrón in the Philippines). I only wished there was more of that on this dish.

winederlust is it worth it

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

Head on down during the weekend and get that wine buffet. Let’s take one of their main dishes, the pork for example. It costs $20 a la carte but with the wine buffet, it’s only $10!!! SICK! What’s more, you get to pair all the good food with great wines!

Award Winning Chef @ Tempura Tenten Whips Up Some Seriously Great Tasting Tendons

James Chan

Tempura Tenten @ Raffles City

Tempura Tenten might be a little hard to find at the basement of Raffles City but just look out for Din Tai Fung and you’ll find Tempura Tenten right next to it. It seems that we have no end to Japanese restaurants setting up here in Singapore. The big question is then “IS IT GOOD?”

Tempura Tenten chef mamoru

The Food

Did you know that a Ramen Champion cooks your food for you? Chef Mamoru Kanaya was trained by the God of Ramen, Kazuo Yamagashi and needless to say, under his tutelage, he won the title of Ultimate Ramen Champion for two consecutive years!

Chef Mamoru also has the unique ability to distinguish ingredients by the sizzling sounds they make in the fryer (this sounds like a character straight from a Japanese anime).

If you think his prowess is just limited to ramen, think again. The tempura that gets whipped up in the kitchen is crazy good.

Tempura Tenten premium king prawn tendon

Premium King Prawn Tendon, $19.80

I went with the spicy version and the truffle rice (top up $1 for the rice). The flesh of the prawns were firm, fresh, extremely sweet and humongous! Pair that with the fragrant truffle rice (the smell of the truffle hits you as soon as it arrives on the table) and you have a SUPER VALUE MEAL right there. Oh and don’t waste the prawn heads, break them apart and hit EVERYTHING in there. The chilli somehow embeds itself in the head and forms this extremely tasty crust like goodness.

Tempura Tenten Unatendon

Unatendon, $19.80

This is one of the classic signature dishes at Tempura Tenten. It sure lives up to its mantle with its melt-in-your-mouth Unajyu (eel from Kagoshima) and assortment of mixed tempura. When you sink your teeth into the tempura, you’ll find a very light and fluffy crust that is extremely crispy. I’m told that this takes a lot of skill. Well done Chef Mamoru! I particularly like the Chicken Tempura with Cheese.

Tempura Tenten Ebi Miso Ramen

Ebi Miso Ramen, $16.80

Of course I had to try a ramen from a Ramen Champion! The prawns in this dish really injected a strong seafood aftertaste to the broth of the ramen. Every mouthful was full of flavor. It’s interesting because there’s A LOT of different flavor profiles in this dish but somehow they all harmoniously come together to form one hearty bowl of goodness.

Tempura Tenten so worth it

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

Definitely! You’re getting food prepared and cooked by an award winning Chef! With that in mind, the price becomes justifiable and somewhat more affordable in a sense since you’re paying for value (okay maybe that’s just for me, my mind works in mysterious ways). That aside, I would keep going back for that light and crispy Tempura batter though!

Enjoy Authentic German Burgers At Picturesque Hans Im Glück

James Chan

Hans Im Glück

Hans Im Glück is a German Burger bar and a must visit for all you Instagram lovers because the place is so darn pretty! Following a consistent dreamy and foresty theme, they even went so far as to import their wood from Germany!

hans im gluck sauces

Located at the International Building, Hans Im Glück houses two areas. One for dining and the other for chugging them tasty cocktails (the bar). Both areas come with indoor and alfresco options.

The Food

The menu can be a little challenging for some (me included). Most of the items on the menu are German words and I had no inkling how to pronounce them. Stick to the good old “point and order”, you can’t go wrong there. That aside, even the menu is so pretty! It was designed like a fairy tale storybook that depicts the story of Hans and his eventful journey home.

At Hans Im Glück, on top of the usual Beef and Chicken Burgers, they have Vegan and Vegetarian Burgers too! These burgers come served from a choice of Sourdough Bun, Multigrain Bun or Naked (ironically this means it comes with no buns). Their buns are also produced by a local German Bakery by the way!

As for your sides, you can choose from Geleit (Mixed Salad), Krautknolle (German White Cabbage Salad), Fritten (Fries) or Susskartoffel-fritten (Sweet Potato Fries). I recommend the Krautknolle as it refreshes your palate with its sourness and makes every bite of your burger seem like a new one.

hans im gluck birkenwald

Birkenwald With Sourdough, $16

Beef and Mushroom Burger

You get the feeling that they’re all about enjoying food and also looking after your body. The Birkenwald is no exception with their Australian imported beef and contains 20% less fat than normal market standards. This is my favorite burger HANDS DOWN. You can never go wrong with beef and mushroom. Hans Im Glück ups their game by spreading that secret, slightly spicy, special sauce on the patty. I’m pretty sure there’s wasabi or mustard in there.

hans im gluck geselle

Geselle With Multigrain, $15

Chicken Breast And Bacon

I’ve always said that chicken breast is a hard meat to work with (literally). Just slightly overcooking it can make it dry and flaky. Fret not, the chicken here was tender and perfectly cooked. However, the bacon was just a tad dry. I don’t know about you but I can overlook the sinfulness of having bacon in my meal just because I ate this burger with the multigrain bun (and this is why I’m fat).

hans im gluck wolpertinger

Wolpertinger Naked, $15

Spicy Patty With Aged Cheddar And Avocado Cream

This is a vegetarian burger and I’m honestly surprised at how much I liked it. The spicy patty is only slightly spicy so don’t get your hopes up spice lovers. But, it works really well with the secret sauce (they have it in ALL of their burgers). I especially loved the avocado cream. It was cool, refreshingly sour and very tasty.

hans im gluck cocktails

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

You cannot find these German burgers ANYWHERE in Singapore. It’s a true German experience without having to leave the country! Hans Im Glück’s attention to detail is remarkable and burgers aside, they make some pretty great tasting cocktails too! Just remember to save yourself the embarrassment, point and order!

Till 5pm – Top up $5 for a hot/cold beverage and a side

From 5pm – Top up $15 for an alcoholic cocktail (yums) and a side

 

They have limited seating so I would suggest to make a reservation via CHOPE with the link below:

BPC Cafe – Home Cooked Meals Passed Down From Generation to Generation

James Chan

BPC Cafe

Run by two brothers with a strong passion for cooking, BPC Cafe recently opened for business earlier in 2018. They’re located at Burlington Square, where the competition for the office crowd and students from Laselle and SOTA is extremely strong.

BPC Cafe Storefront

So how have they survived thus far? The answer lies in their competitive pricing and of course their delicious rice bowls.

The Food

In a short interview with one of the brothers, Mr Vincent, I found out that BPC stands for Beef, Pork and Chicken. Which are the ingredients you’ll find in any of their dishes.

Similar to a Japanese fast food brand that specializes in rice bowls (not mentioning names here) BUT the difference here is, BPC Cafe’s bowls actually taste good! BPC’s rice bows allow one to reminisce about the joys of good old home cooking. Also, the recipes for these bowls are interestingly passed down from their mother and from watching her cook when they were younger. Trust me, when someone says that, expectations will be raised (like mine were).

BPC Cafe Black Pepper Beef Bowl

Black Pepper Beef Rice Bowl, $8.90

The beef was extremely tender and well marinated with slight sweet and spicy notes pleasantly enveloping your palate. Everything in the bowl has been well thought of. Personally, for me, I felt the portion was a little small though. But I’m a savage. This was definitely my personal favorite!

BPC Cafe Bulgogi Spicy Chicken

Bulgogi Spicy Chicken Rice Bowl, $7.90

The chicken wasn’t spicy! But they gave a generous amount of chicken though! It was tender, flavorful and I love how each individual ingredient works well together to create a wholesome and appealing dish. Oh and did you know that they make the kimchi in house?

BPC Cafe Crispy Pork Chop Nppdle

Crispy Pork Chop Noodle, $6.50

One of their new introductions to their existing menu. Looked a little plain to be honest but that pork chop, my goodness. For that price, it’s so much value! You get a crispy crust with tender meat and you’ll definitely feel full for sure. Even if you don’t, just order another one lah!

 

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

For the price and the quality of food you get, I would give it a solid YES from me. Everything I ordered was delicious! Remember how at the start of this article I said my expectations were raised because Mr Vincent told me all his dishes were from recipes passed on to him from his mother? Let’s just say my expectations were well met.

Summer Hill – Order That Godlike Roasted Chicken

James Chan

Summer Hill

Let’s just say you can’t miss Summer Hill (even though they’re really small) because it’s easily the prettiest eatery in the WHOLE of Sunset Way.

Looks aside (mama always said not to judge people by their looks), for a bistro located in a HDB estate, there seems to be a disconnect with their high pricing. That doesn’t stop throngs of people from coming to eat at Summer Hill though. You’ll understand why if you order the Roast Chicken.

The Food

They have an extremely simple menu with limited offerings so you don’t need to overwork your brain too much before ordering. Also, their portions are relatively big and justifies their prices. Here’s what we ordered.

summer hill mussels

Fresh Mussels Cooked in White Wine . $25

You get a generous amount of delicious and perfectly cooked mussels. Fresh, plump, sweet and juicy – everything I look out for when it comes to mussels.

Signature Roast Chicken, $23 for half, $45 for whole

This chicken is DA BOMB. It comes with a homemade sauce but honestly, I didn’t even need the sauce. The chicken is so damn good, I could eat it on its own. The mark of how good a chicken is can easily be judged by how tender the breast is. At Summer Hill? SO TENDER!

summer hill roast beef

Boneless Beef Roast, Grass Fed, $36

It’s a decent dish but I’ve honestly had better roasts in Singapore. That green chilli sauce has a slight spicy aftertaste which is a definite plus but that it.

summer hill pork collar

Roast Pork Collar, $25

Nope. Didn’t work for me. The meat, although marinated perfectly, was tough and pretty hard to go down.

 

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

Yes to the Roast Chicken & the Mussels. I would come back for those two dishes for sure. Furthermore, it’s located so near to one of favorite drinking places, Stickies Bar @ Sunset! Eat, Drink, Sleep, Repeat!

Why are People Still Buying Huoyanshaiziniu’s Beef Cubes? 

James Chan

It is a given fact that Singaporeans are curious foodies. We tend to want to check out new food places that have just launched. Especially ones that have been widely advertised by various more well-established media companies.

We are no strangers to snaking queues outside food establishments, and are indifferent when told of the long waiting times.

Huoyanshaiziniu Beef cubes

Huoyanshaiziniu Beef Cubes

This is no different at Huoyanshiziniu. When they first launched in early February, there was a crowd almost every time I was in the area. Undeterred, I continued keeping an eye open for when there was less of a queue. Finally, when my curiosity and hunger got the better of me, and I too joined the craze and ordered a portion.

It was 7pm, dinnertime, and I was hungry. From word of mouth I learnt that there was a rice set option available, and I decided to go with that. Taking into account that it was dinnertime, it came as a nice surprise to me that there was not much of a queue. Maybe just 3 couples ahead of me.

I soon found out why.

“Sorry, we are out of rice.”

The first thoughts that ran through my head was along the lines of, “If you guys are not selling rice during dinner hours, then what exactly are you guys selling for dinner?”

A hungry man is an angry man, and the hunger in my stomach needed satiating, so I just got the regular beef cubes before I turned into She-Hulk.

Whilst waiting for my serving, I learnt that the beef was Angus Ribeye beef from Australia. And as I watched customer after customer receive their purchases in that dinky takeaway box, I wondered if that $6.90 price tag justified the cost of imported beef.

Huoyanshaiziniu Beef small portions

Excuse me, I did not order that

At the first bite, the beef was juicy and addictive. But at the second, third and fourth bite, I realised how well-done the beef was. It was overcooked.

Maybe I picked an “accidental” cube. I scooped another one, and nope, still as overly cooked.

Don’t get me wrong, I really liked the juiciness of the snack. But the fact that it was too well-done spoiled the overall impression of it.

Besides the beef being too well-done, I realised that in that meagre portion that I was served, some chunks of “beef” turned out to be just FAT. I mean, some fat was alright, but the entire, I mean ENTIRE cube was just a hunk of beef fat.

Excuse me, I that was not what I asked for in my order.

Huoyanshaiziniu Beef cooked well done in a bad way

Research

Still not getting why people are willing to pay close to $7 for overdone beef, I did some research of my own.

I went back the next day at about 3pm, and ordered the same thing. This time there was more of a queue, but the beef still tasted like a letdown. At this point I figured the cook might have been grilling the beef on the grill for too long before blowtorching it. Thus making it too well-done (and not well done in a good way).

As with most other Millennials, I dove into social media for more answers. From the pictures and reviews, I figured that customers who loved the beef cubes were the ones who got them prepared medium rare (as was initially advertised by Huoyanshaiziniu). I can only imagine how awesome it tasted: soft, succulent beef with a lightly charred outside and a smoky flavour to go with it.

In Conclusion

With the aftertaste of leftover disappointment, and an emptiness in my stomach, I can only conclude that the chefs at Huoyanshaiziniu need to serve more consistent portions if they want to keep their loyal customers coming back.

Depizza Recreates The Pizza Dining Experience Through It’s Unique Local Flavors

James Chan

Depizza

From a couple of fellows who have mad love for local Singaporean cuisine and an equal love for pizza comes their brain child, Depizza. Open for business at Boat Quay since mid-February, Depizza specializes in fusing both their loves together (in an extremely DE-licious manner mind you).

For you OG purists, fret not, Depizza also offers all time classics like Pepperoni, Hawaiian, 4 cheeses and their all-time crowd favorite – The 4 Hit Combo.

Depizza interior

The Food

I was unfortunate to have gone for the tasting by myself so there was a limit to the amount of pizzas I could try. I opted for their famous Chilli Crab Pizza and a side of Fat Die Fries. Even then, I wasn’t able to finish everything. It’s that filling. I’ll have to try the Nasi Lemak Pizza ($24) and the Gu Lou Yok Pizza ($22) the next time though!

Chilli Crab Pizza. $26

The first thing that hits you is the familiar Chilli Crab fragrance. Just from the smell alone, one can tell that this dish is the real deal. I was particularly impressed with the generous amounts of real crab meat I could see scattered all over the pizza.

I’m told that lots of Research and Development went into creating this pizza. Well, to me, all that definitely paid off. The taste is definitely legit. Although, it is slightly spicier than most Chilli Crabs I’ve eaten in Singapore (which is a good thing). The icing on the cake? Their MANTOU CRUST! A crispy exterior with a soft and fluffy dough filling!

depizza fat die fries

Fat Die Fries, $14

This is essentially Poutine, a Canadian classic (having a Canadian chef has its perks). French fries, cheese and an extremely sinful beef demiglace sauce. When I asked what went into the demiglace sauce, they told me it was a secret. Okay, no complaints there for this plate of sin. Just take my money.

depizza assorted sauces

Extra Spicy Sauce

To complement your pizzas, there are various condiments at your disposal. You have your standard cheese and chilli flakes AND you have their in-house made sauces – garlic, green chilli pesto and red chili (this is like your chicken rice chilli but on steroids).

If that isn’t good enough for you and you would like something spicy, request for the EXTRA SPICY SAUCE. It’s only meant for people who can “tahan” spice though because that sauce is made from a Carolina Reaper (one of the world’s hottest peppers). Got me perspiring from my first bite.

 

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

When I eat out, it’s all about the price to satisfaction to how full I am ratio. Depizza checks all the criteria I have and I find myself wanting to visit again and again to try different flavors! So it’s a definite yes from me!

Take A Time Out At The Naughty Corner

Pei Xia Ang

Quirkily named after childrens’ punishment area, The Naughty Corner is a place for both young and old to take a break and cool off with some gelato.

The Naughty Corner is located in the neighborhood area of Hougang, and their flavors cater to both the young and the young at heart.

naughty corner gelato flavors

Flavours

From sweet to sour, salty to bitter, they have you covered. Some of the crowd favourites include Cocoa (a mixture of bittersweet), Root Beer Float (a creamy delight for the kids), Tim Tam Slam (a nostalgic blast to the past), and Limetta Cheesecake (a mixture of sweet and sour).

naughty corner sizes

For my double scoop gelato, I went with the popular Mango Sorbet and Strawberry fusion, and was pleasantly surprised at how well the flavors complemented each other. Each scoop of mango felt like a bite off the juicy tropical fruit. In contrast, the strawberry was more mellow in flavor. The berry taste was not too artificially overbearing, and it reminded me of the strawberry ice creams I had during my childhood.

 naughty corner fresh mango

Other Offerings

In addition to gelato, The Naughty Corner recently launched the Stuffed Bubblewrap.  Almost like egglets, the ones here are stuffed with flavors like Chocolate, Reese’s Peanut Butter, and Sea Salt Caramel.

For someone too fickle to choose, I went for all 3 flavors. This means that each individual egglet is randomly filled with either of the 3 flavors. From the salty caramel to the sweet chocolate, each bite carried a fresh surprise.

naughty corner many offerings

In Conclusion

Sweet or sour, naughty or nice, there is always something for you at The Naughty Corner. The gelato are made in-house, and the flavors change on a rotational basis. This is where one can experience surprises at every corner!
