Having reached our tiny red dot for almost three months now, Banana Tree has seen success with cafe hoppers flocking to Keong Saik Road just to have a taste of these beautifully plated desserts that look almost too good to be eaten or drank.
Banana Tree is a popular South Korean cafe chain with many outlets in its homeland. ‘Garden’-themed desserts served in pots with spoons shaped like spades, is Banana Tree merely a novelty?
Thankfully, the desserts here were expertly executed and we respect the effort put in to create these gorgeous desserts.
When we were ordered this item – Flower Paap (S$6.50), we never expected to be served an actual flower pot. Inside this adorable pot, housed delicious banana pudding served with oreo ‘soil’ and topped off with chocolate pebbles. We could not take enough photos of it! (And yes, they were easily a hit on Instagram.)
If this sweltering heat is too much for you to enjoy the desserts alone, try the Virgin Apple Mojito (S$7) or the Iced Matcha Som Som (S$7.50). The former is an ultra-refreshing take on a virgin mojio with fresh mint and apple cubes, served in a nice mason jar.
