Sweet Monster – Softserve With Cake At Bugis Junction, Sends You On A Sugar High
Excluding me, the average age of the customer at Sweet Monster Bugis Junction must be 7. A kids-friendly place with seats catered to their heights, as they eat away milk soft serve covered with coloured popcorn. (Read: Sweet Monster Plaza Singapura)
The South Korean brand Sweet Monster has reached here by storm, 2 branches – Plaza Singapura #B2-49 and Bugis Junction #M01-K1 in a month, with a 3rd at Novena Square coming soon.
The Bugis Junction outlet is placed at a strategic position right at the atrium, at the strategic location outside Ajisen, Nandos and TCC. .
Sweet Monster’s soft serve is made from at least 75% organic milk (so what’s the other 25%) covered with air-popped popcorn. I wonder if kids can tell the different between this, and say the much cheaper one served by the fast-food restaurant steps away.
A basic Real Deep Milk Soft Serve is at $4.80, while a popcorn-covered version with flavours of Caramel, Milk, Cheese Caramel Mix, Chocho or Strawberry is at $6.80.
“This customers wants to a pretty-looking softserve, who can do?” Server looked around and asked… “Okay, I do it then.”
It must be something about the weather and humidity in Singapore, the popcorn somehow lacked the crisp that I would have imagined. Lao hong both times I tried.
The texture of the soft serve was smoothly milky, denser that some of its competitors, BUT too sweet after a few mouthfuls.
Slabs of Monster Cakes in flavours of Pistachio Almond, Banana Nutella, Strawberry, Oreo, Caramel Walnut and Cherry are available at $7.80 which comes in a takeaway box. Pair it up with softserve at $8.30 if your weight allows it.
The cheesecake had a surprisingly light consistency (was expecting it to be denser), but true to its name, the combination was a SWEET monster. (Maybe it is an age thing – I can no longer tolerate such sweet things.)
