Despite already having dessert at New India, Quyen and I thought we deserved an extra dose of sugary treats! Both being fans of Chocolate Bean Cafe, we walked all the way to the east end of the city for some Dark Chocolate Icy and a cupcake for Quyen as well.
Dark Chocolate Icy Gingerbread Flavour (Large) - $6.60
I love how this is a iced chocolate, but you cannot feel the chunks of ice in it. Whenever I do, I feel like I'm paying for ice. This had a lovely soft and smooth texture, not like a thickshake though - it's hard to describe but absolutely perfect for a warm day! What stood out with the richness of the dark chocolate, that I have to admit became overwhelming as I reached the bottom of the glass. I made the mistake of order a large size, it was humungous and overly-generous! The frothiness on top made my night!
Quyen had a chai and banana flavoured vegan cupcake and a medium chocolate icy. When her chocolate icy arrived at the table, we were unsure whether it was mine or hers. That's how big the medium was!
Quyen enjoying her Dark Chocolate Icy Gingerbread Flavour (medium) - $5.70 (we chose the same flavour without even realising because we ordered separately!) and her banana and chai flavour vegan cupcake.
Quyen was kind enough to let me try her cupcake. You can definitely taste the chai flavour. Perhaps it's because it was vegan, but I find that Chocolate Bean Cafe's vegan cupcakes are drier than the average cupcake, and I've tried quite a few Chocolate Bean cupcakes before. Not my favourite.
Banana and Chai vegan cupcake - $4.50
