Founder of hot dog and burger joint Super Dog and having more than six years of restaurant management, 38 year old Edmund Koh recently ventured into the dessert business with the birth of dessert ministry in early October 2010. Over 80 great tasting, hot and cold desserts, drinks and snacks are available to the discerning dessert lover.
The 60-seater, 850 sq ft cosy and contemporary outlet is located at #01-03 Cathay Cineleisure Orchard.
You’ll be spoilt for choice with the different types of desserts available here. dessert ministry’s signature desserts include their handmade Daifuku which means “good luck” in Japanese or 大福 in Chinese and the Mango series.
Under the hot dessert category, there are the soup series, soup combo series, steam dessert series, mango series, sago series, ice cream series, pudding series, special dessert series and the Daifuku series.
Each Daifuku is made with high-grade Japanese flour and stuffed with fresh fruit and you have 4 to choose from. The Strawberry Daifuku, Mango Daifuku and Matcha Daifuku costs S$3.50 for a pair and the D24 Durian Daifuku which I absolutely love costs S$4.20 for a pair. If you love mochi, you would want to try these out.Before leaving, remember to grab a box of Daifuku to share with your family and friends.
You’ll be treated to sweet snacks such as the black sesame sticker sugar rice balls or Strawberry spring rolls. Of course, there are some savories available if you need to fill your tummy before having your desserts, though the choice is limted. You have a choice of Egg Mayonnaise Sandwich or Sirloin Steak and Cheese Sandwich or Wings and Chips. The Sirloin Steak and Cheese Sandwich costs S$8.80 and that is the highest cost from the snack range.
I tried the Strawberry Spring Roll and it reminded me of my favourite red bean pancake. The Spring Rolls are filled with red bean paste and stuffed with strawberries in a crispy skin roll.
In the hot drinks section of the menu, you’ll get to choose from 5 blends of hot tea for S$5.20 or the Red Date with Longan Tea for S$5.50. Each order of hot drinks serve two.
There are 5 categories of chilled drinks ranging from S$2.80 to S$4.80 which you can order from :
- Honey Jelly Base
- Azuki Base (Red bean)
- Aloe Vera Base
- Pearl Base
- Sago Base
Mineral water is sold for S$2.00 and dessert ministry does not charge service charge at time of publishing this article. I had the Watermelon Juice with Sago and enjoyed it because it was not too sweet.
I’ll definitely be returning to dessert ministry soon.
