Originating from Korea, this dessert boutique cafe has opened its door along Keong Saik Road attracting all the local korean fans. Cafe is deck in 3 main coats of color – white, yellow and brown, bringing out a clean, neat yet quirky ambiance within. The dining area is well spaced-out but not lacking in any cosiness. We are pretty lucky having not to queue for long hours before we can get hold of these bingsu and pretty potted desserts.

A yellow shelf filled with all the cute small little dainty figurines.

What makes Banana Tree stand out from the rest is definitely the cutesy presentation of their desserts and drinks. For one, their Iced Chocolate Som Som Latte ($7) is topped with white fluffy and sweet candy floss. And frankly speaking, i like their candy floss better than the latte itself. I find the Chocolate Som Som Latte somewhat a little too thin in flavor, lacking the richness and milkiness i was expecting.

Flower Baap ($6.50), flower pot pudding made with finest ingredients. We went for their Banana version. Smooth handmade cream with mash of banana topped with oreo bits. Quite interesting burst of flavor, something different from the usuals. Simple yet delightful pot of dessert.

The last dessert we tried was this huge Pot BingSoo ($12.50). The base is made up of fine shaved ice with sweet red beans cooked to the right consistency, neither too hard, nor too soft accompanied with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Definitely feeling shiok eating this on a sunny hot day! & in my opinion, this pot is good for sharing for a group of 4 and more, the 2 of us gotten a little bored in finishing it!

Generally, the cafe has the potential in attracting the crowds due to the pretty plating of desserts & drinks and the use of cute little utensils, like the mini spade spoon! & also the very fact that it comes from korea! Flavor and quality wise is definitely decent and comparable to most other places selling similar items.
