SIN: Sweet Dynasty

Carrot cake studded with pumpkin bits...

First of all, have a blessed Good Friday, everyone! Have you had your hot cross buns for today? :)

Established in 2010 at The Central, Sweet Dynasty has a motto: "The sweetness of life starts here". It's a small eatery serving not only dessert items, but also savoury snacks. They've also come up with ten reasons to love their eatery and, of course, their food. Interested to know? Click on the link at the end of this review to find out!


Oyster Sauce Chicken Thigh with Mushroom and Rice S$5.20
Taste: 8/10

I tried one of their rice dishes. On top of warm, well-cooked rice grains, tender chicken meat was sitting nicely with juicy shiitake mushrooms, half an egg and crunchy chye sim (Chinese mustard green). The oyster sauce was delectable without being overly salty.


Homemade Pumpkin Cake S$2.60
Taste: 6/10

While the snack is called pumpkin cake, I felt that the one I had was more of a Chinese carrot cake made of 'white carrots' or turnips, with pumpkin flesh added. While it had a somewhat creamy texture, it was a tad mushy for my liking.


Beancurd Prawn and Fish Roll S$3.20
Taste: 6.5/10

The deep-fried items were slightly better. I had to admit that the beancurd skin wasn't entirely crispy, but the prawn and fish paste inside tasted alright. Topped with mayonnaise and chopped spring onions, the beancurd rolls weren't oily.


Rice Balls in Taro Cream S$3.40
Taste: 8/10

I chose a hot dessert bowl to end the meal. I really enjoyed the earthy yam paste which wasn't cloyingly sweet. While the savoury black sesame filling was good, I felt that the rice balls encasing it could be slightly less soft and, in turn, chewier.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 7/10
Ambience: 7/10
Service: 7.5/10
Overall: 7/10

I'm interested to try other dessert items they offer, but not the snacks. Pika's advice: You can also visit the other branch at 136 Sims Avenue!
