I discovered Sweet Fix accidentally after dinner one night at Hawker’s Cuisine in Northbridge. My sister and I were looking around for dessert place and saw a colorful sign showcasing Asian desserts pointing to the opposite of the road near Gelares on James Street. It was strange I thought as there isn’t a store called Sweet Fix on the other side of the road? I figured they must have misplaced the sign and it was supposed to point the other way. Being the nosy me, I went to have a look.
Ah, the mystery was solved, Sweet Fix is now where Little Utopia used to be, refurbished and much more colorful and retro looking than before. I love the cute pink lamps fitted throughout the cafe. They looked cool against the dark pink backdrop which must be the feature wall!
We decided to stay for dessert as there were a few interesting ones on the menu that I wouldn’t mind trying. Some samples can be seen on the counter too.
We ordered the Sago Gula Melaka (Sago Pudding $3.90) and the Fried Ice Cream with banana and marshmallow ($6.90).
The Sago Gula Melaka was good! Soft sago pearls that were not starchy nor clumpy. They fell apart in the mouth and you can taste the individual sago. Nice! I love the taste of the palm sugar (gula melaka) as well, it was rich and buttery. There was a good balance between the coconut cream and palm sugar syrup which made it just right.
The Fried Ice Cream at Sweet Fix looked to me like a jazzed up version from the ones you get at Chinese restaurants. Rightly so at that price. It was a bigger version with a thin and crispy batter which I liked. It also meant that there was more ice-cream on the inside! Yay! My ice-cream craving was satisfied that night!
One thing to note was that service can be quite slow as there was only one staff working while we were there. We waited for a long time before we got our desserts. Another staff came later on the night which I think should help with getting the desserts out quicker. For the next time I would like to try the Soya Bean Custard which is served in a wooden bucket. It looks really cool!
