If you have visited Tampines 1 recently, you might have noticed the long queue at level 2. This queue belongs to the long-awaited…..
BlackBall 黑丸嫩仙草, which has opened at 02-K2!
It is said to be Taiwan’s number 1 grass jelly dessert chain, so how can we not try it!
There are four ways to enjoy the BlackBall Signature dessert, you can either have it hot, cold, warm or icy. The dessert is served with a combination of Grass Jelly, Yam Q, Golden Sweet Potato, Taro Balls, Sweet Potato Balls, Red Beans and Pearls.
The Hot Stuff is recommended for people who love grass jelly in liquid form, and Icy is recommended for people who need an instant coolness to quench their thirst. You can even customize your Icy selection by choosing either Grass Jelly or Wintermelon Shaved Ice, which is sweeter.
The weather has been extremely hot for the past weeks, so we ordered the Icy Signature BlackBall!
When the bowl of goodness was served, we were impressed by the colourful add-ons, which looked so yummy! The grass jelly was soft, and not too sweet, unlike those grass jelly with thick sugar syrup which made you sick after a few mouthfuls.
The add-ons (Yam Q, Golden Sweet Potato, Taro Balls, Sweet Potato Balls and Pearls) are so Q (chewy)! They literally bounced between your teeth as you chewed on them. The Golden Sweet Potato and Taro Balls were exceptionally tasteful, which was why they are our favourites of the lot.
Another highlight was the Red Beans. The texture of the beans was soft, and the flavour of the beans was so distinct that it infused fragrance to the dessert, thanks to the long hours of preparation process.
BlackBall Signature (Icy), $5.40
For the extra punch, we also added in some creamer to our warm Blackball Signature. The warmth of the grass jelly unleashed its full-flavour, and it’s recommended for all grass jelly fan who don’t mind a tinge of heat in their dessert.
