Located on the first level of Gek Poh Shopping Centre in Jurong West, OH MY MANGO is a new dessert cafe that breathes new life into the somewhat run-down neighbourhood shopping centre. Specialising in Thai-inspired sweet treats, their menu boasts more than 40 different items from desserts to colourful beverages and even assorted Shibuya toasts that are available in both sweet and savoury varieties.
If you think that this is just another neighbourhood dessert pitstop, think again. On their menu, you can expect to find some pretty interesting offerings such as their Tom Yum Goong Toast (S$6.90) which is somewhat similar to a pizza except with the addition of the spicy and zesty flavours of Thailand’s iconic dish.
Those living in the West of Singapore truly have something to be glad about, especially with so many interesting cafes and eateries sprouting up around the area. Whether it’s a quick coffee run or a much-needed sugar spike, OH MY MANGO Dessert Cafe is a great option to consider.
Our sporadic dessert cravings often stem from Singapore’s sweltering temperature. After soldiering through the heat and bearing the humidity, you should find ways to treat yourselves whenever you can.
One Korean dessert that seems to be getting everyone crazy is the bingsu, also known to the world as Korean shaved ice.
Whether you have visited Korea or not, we hope this list of Korean dessert places will touch your #Seoul.
When bingsu first hit the shores of Singapore, that few pioneering outlets saw snaking queues every day for months.
For the uninitiated, bingsu is a Korean shaved ice dessert. It often comes in a sharing bowl; the shaved ice may or may not be flavoured, and piled with toppings on top such as fruits and nuts.
Perhaps this was because Singaporeans have a tendency to follow where the crowd goes or maybe it was just that innate willingness to queue for food. After all, “if there is a queue, it must be good,” right?
However, would you go out of the way to satisfy your craving for a sweet ice treat or really, do you still have a craving for bingsu? Is the Korean bingsu trend still alive and how long will it last?

A new Korean wave to hit Singapore is Korean Bingsu in takeaway cups. Chot-Nun at Far East Plaza, is less than a month old and is the first in Singapore to introduce this concept.
We have been waiting for someone to take the plunge and serve Bingsu in Llaollao sized cups that are handy to eat anywhere. This simple but brilliant idea also serves as an economical alternative to its otherwise pretty pricey older brother, which tends to cost around the S$20 mark for a bowl.
We made a trip down to Far East Plaza to check it out, and here’s what to expect from Chot-Nun.
