1/12/2013 – Constantly finding a place to drink a cup of coffee while relaxing, I went to The Marshmallow Tree. Situated in a HDB block below Telok Blangah, this place is well-decorated with different types of seatings and to the young at heart.
Initially I thought the Bandung Latte ($4.50) was a caffeinated drink, until the server told me it wasn’t. Still, this was a very nice drink. With the correct amount of steamed milk, vanilla and rose syrup added, it feels sweet and milky enough. The only downside to this is that I felt that it was rather pricey.
The Macaron S’mores ($4, a pair) is also something unique to order here. The smores, which is essentially a marshmallow in between 2 macaron shells and smothered with the sauce of your liking (I chose Nutella). The smores burst upon the first mouthful. The marshmallows were soft and the Nutella made it feel more enriching. The shells were rather hard to chew on though.
If you live nearby Telok Blangah, why not give this place a visit? I will find myself being here if I’m around the area again (I feel like trying the waffles!)
Food: 7.7/10 (great food; smores could be improved, drink price could be cheaper)
Ambience: 8.2/10 (well furnished to resemble like a childhood place)
Comfort: 7.6/10 (ample seating; cozy seats but some are quite cramped)
Service: 8/10 (fast and polite; complimentary marshmallow given for ordering)
