Let’s Sweets, Enchanting Affordable Dessert Paradise

letsweets

I have often come across Japanese Buffets, Indian Buffets, Dim Sum Buffets and even the all exotic Meat Buffets, but this is perhaps my first time to a Japanese Dessert Buffet! From the popular brands such as “Ajisen Ramen”, “Manpuku”, “Botejyu”, “Fruit Paradise” and “Aoba” under its belt, Japan Foods Holding Ltd is launching a new concept of desserts and sweets, served a la buffet style – “Let’s Sweets”!

Of course, desserts are not the only sweets there. Chef Chika Hatekeyama (center) poses with two of her teammates during the media launch.

I was boggled by the wide array of desserts available. Varied hues, textures, and varieties, this was almost a Japanese dessert heaven.

There is a spread of more than 40 different creations such as the Souffle Cheese Cake, Gelee de Fraise, Mousse aux Banana and the Tarte aux Noix.

   

Most of the desserts were well crafted and each of them carried an air of delicate finesse about them. The Chocolate Mousse which I had was served up warm and cooling on the rack. Digging into it, a burst of chocolate fragrance strikes the air and while the outer shell remains crisp, the insides remain moist and deep in velvety chocolate goodness with layers of liquid chocolate oozing slowy out.

A live Crepe station is also available. Three types of crepes are offered. Chocolate Banana Crepe, Mixed Berry Crepe, and Caramel Apple Crepe using handmade caramel sauce. I had the Caramel Apple Crepe which was decently served and not too sweet with slices of fresh candied apple topped on the warm crepe with vanilla ice cream.

A unique dessert available at Let’s Sweets is the Dancing Yaki Mochi. The pan shakes vigorously giving the illusion of the mochi dancing, though its more a mere vibration. 5 flavours Sakura Cherry Blossoms, Red Bean, Miso, Black Sesame and Sweet Potato are up for grabs. Generally, the filling is sweet and heavy with the skin being a little thick and perhaps crispy if the mochi is cooked for too long. 

To complement the sweets, Let’s Sweets also offer a selected range of savouries of Pastas, Pizzas, Omurice with Demiglace sauce, and Gratins.

For a dessert buffet restaurant, Let’s Sweets offers up a decent spread and variety of both sweet delights and savouries to complement along with it. At the price from $14.80++ onwards, the restaurant places itself as a value for money visit. The only catch would be that diners have a time limit of 60 minutes for lunch and 80 minutes for dinner.

The ambience is generally spacious with vibrant natural lighting entering from the glassed skyroof at Bugis Junction, giving an impression of al fresco dining albeit with air conditioning for a section of the restaurant. Good quality, an extensive array in the menu together with affordable pricing will keep me coming back for more.

    what happen if you take more than the required time? what the charges like?

      Hi Lin,

      According to the marketing personnel, 5-10 mins overtime is fine. But if you happen to take longer than usual, the charges will be pro rated. Which to my understanding is an additional fee on top of the buffet price based on the extra time taken.

      Hi Mei,

      hmm i’m not sure if there is a need for reservations but the last time i walked past the area the queue was quite long. so perhaps reservations would be a good idea.

    Hi 🙂

    Is the spread same during lunch and dinner?
    Thanks!

      Hi Alexis, from the menu which I received, it is more or less fixed throughout the day and some items might be subjected to seasonal availability.

    Hi, are the desserts available the same for lunch and dinner? 😀

    • Justin Pereira August 24, 2010 at 3:13 pm - Reply

      Hi foodaholic, I believe the desserts should be the same durin lunch and dinner. Though there might be some changes bases on seasonal ingredients.

    The food look nice and my friend ask me to try it out but i reject her due to the time limit as i would want to relax while eating and chatting with my friend instead of rushing the food due to the time limit given.

      Hi Christina,

      Yeah the time limit can be quite a hassle. But if you have a good recommendation, do share.

    The outlet I ate at Bishan (before it closed down) had slightly different desserts as compared to yours at Bugis. Haha, by the way, how you get the 3 ladies to pose in front of the camera for you? =D
