5-7 July: Try the brand-new Okinawa brown sugar soft-serve from Emma, treat yourself to a meal from acclaimed Chef Anne-Sophie Pic, catch the NDP rehearsals at Smoke & Mirrors, feast on champagne & oysters at MO Bar or unlimited durians at RWS, and more!
1. Savour Okinawa brown sugar boba with soft-serve from famous Japanese brand EMMA
You’ve probably seen it all over social media: photos and videos of the gravity-defying swirls of soft-serve; more charcoals and white swirls crowned with gorgeous brown sugar boba within a wafer shell…
Well, you can now try it, because the famed Japanese dessert brand, Emma, has just launched its first shop outside of Japan – situated within the basement of Plaza Singapura! Established in May 2018, this soft serve and speciality tea shop sees snaking queues that lasts for hours. High-quality, authentic Japanese ingredients are used in their desserts: premium Japanese milk for a rich, creamy texture in its soft-serve (hence, the signature upside-down photos everyone takes with their ice-cream), Japanese Okinawa brown sugar, kuromitsu (Japanese brown sugar syrup) and Japanese kinako (soybean) powder, as well as charcoal cones that are specially imported from Japan
Desserts to try would be their signature Boba Taco Softie (S$6.80): swirls of charcoal cheese soft serve, topped with Okinawa brown sugar pearls and a sprinkling of crunchy nuts, and snuggled in a crispy wafer taco shell. Don’t take too long for your photos – the boba is served freshly-cooked, which makes the ice-cream melt faster than usual! We also enjoyed the Emma Soft Milk with Dips (S$5.30), where the creamy Emma’s Original Soft Serve is dipped into an array of flavours atop a black charcoal cone. We especially loved the bittersweet Matcha, which paired well with the milky ice-cream!
There’s also an opening promotion for the month of July: if your name is “Emma” you get 50% off on your purchase! Simply show your ID or name card to the service staff prior to ordering.
