Affogato Amaretto - HaliaAffogato amaretto from Halia (Singapore Botanic Gardens) – vanilla ice cream, amaretto liqueur, hot espresso. The hot espresso is poured at your table, with some leftover if you wish to (further) feed your caffeine addiction. They certainly do not hold back on the liqueur – the distinct taste of amaretto is present in each spoonful of the smooth affogato. The combination of the heady amaretto, the creamy vanilla ice cream and the warm, bitter espresso makes for one heck of a dessert to enjoy whilst admiring bulbous gingers and birds of paradise, and immersing in the symphony of foreign tongues, baby squeals and camera clicks. 4/5
