After dinner at Din Tai Fung, we decided to walk off some of the calories by exploring the surrounding area. That’s when we discovered Soypresso on Lishui Street.
Soypresso is a cafe that specialises in drinks and desserts made with soy milk. Aside from regular soy milk, they also offer black sesame soy milk, tie guan yin tea soy milk, strawberry soy yoghurt, matcha soy milk latte, and other flavours. Dessert options include a brown sugar soy sundae, tofu pudding in various flavours and with various toppings, ice cream, and others.
How to get to Soypresso
If you’re taking public transportation, you can take the MRT (either red or orange line) to Dongmen Station (R07/O06). Make a U-turn at Exit 4 or 5 to get to Lishui Street. Continue down the road until you reach Soypresso on the right.
The cafe has a simple, minimalistic decor and a welcoming atmosphere. The staff is also very friendly.
What a thoughtful gesture to place a bowl of roasted soy beans on each table so that we could all sample them. Love the aroma!
Please see their Facebook page for the full menu.
Ooh, we couldn’t stop ourselves from getting ice cream cones!
Soy Milk Soft Cream
Smooth, rich, creamy and reasonably sweet. Definitely a far better version than Mr. Bean’s!
Black Sesame Soy Milk Soft Cream
If you enjoy desserts made with black sesame, you’ll enjoy this because of how aromatic the black sesame flavour is. It wasn’t overly sweet too. Pretty good!
Dinner at Din Tai Fung was a letdown but this soy milk ice cream more than made up for it. This is what I call the perfect sweet ending! 😉
You must try Soypresso if you love soy! Their drinks and desserts are also suitable for vegans and those who are lactose intolerant. 🙂
