Unicorn Sundae, $10, Hatter Street Bakehouse and Cafe
Unless this is all you're having at the Coffee Festival, we suggest sharing this with your bae or BFF. This sundae is essentially Lavender White Chocolate ice cream topped with a scoop of Toasted Marshmallows ice cream, and icing decorations. The cone is adorned with a ring of Froot Loops, which makes it more delish. Only get this if you have a sweet tooth.
Coffee in a Cone, The Coffee Academics, $8.90
The cone can't hold a lot of coffee, so expect your drinking experience to be over in three sips. The great thing is, the cone does make the coffee taste slightly sweeter (because of the chocolate), but it's too sweet to be eaten on its own.
24 Karat Gold, $10.90, Fox Hole Cafe
A collaboration with Rainbow Works, this may score well on the like-o-meter, but might be an acquired taste. The charcoal earl grey lavender soft serve seems to have more hints of charcoal than the other two ingredients, which might be confusing to your taste buds. The menu says it's served with "real gold", but the gold foil/sheet is tasteless and doesn't even cover up half the ice cream. What saved this was the charcoal cone, which was made on the spot. It's crunchy without being too hard like the mass-produced ones and has a tinge of sweetness.
Foie Gras Poutine, $13, Garçons
Well, it's not every day that you can enjoy foie gras without shelling out a lot of money, so this one is a must-try. Plus, they're pretty generous with the cheese and light brown sauce!
Cassis Green Tea, $5, Japanese Pavilion
Sold by a pleasant Japanese lady at the Japanese Pavilion, this comes in a small plastic sachet that might make you wonder if it's worth the $5. But it is because the tea is sweet and refreshing, without tasting artificial. The lady also told us that the straw is shaped like a heart!
Blue Pea Cold Tea, $4, 1°C
This has no artificial sugar, only organic honey added, so it wasn't too sweet. It doesn't make us crave for more, but it's totally Instagrammable. Apparently, if you add lemon to the drink, it changes colour!
Scotch Egg Sandwich, $12, Park Bench Deli
Ramen egg + anything = OTP, but this one ups the game with the chicken sausage and tonkatsu sauce. If you're really hungry or a bite before drinking all the caffeine, put this on your priority list.
Take a rest at this super Insta-worthy area at Level 2 (there are hammocks at the side!).
