utterly fantastic and wholly incomparable bliss-out desserts at this famed steakhouse in marina bay sands. I have unashamedly fallen in deep mire with this place – it’s now my go-to for indulging in sweets, and I’m afraid that it might just become an uncontrollable habit.
I’ve wanted to come here for a long time – and while I’m bursting with adjectives, let me objectively say that the souffle was high, fluffy, barely deflated even after standing, and when eaten with the chocolate ice cream and creme fraiche on top – was a revelation in deep dark chocolate and that gorgeous play of hot and cold. truly, this ranks as one of the best mouthfuls I’ve ever had.
the butterscotch apple crumble came as a recommendation, and a very good one. the best component – and the thing that made it – was the caramel used to cook the apples. it had all the flavour and hint of bitterness you associate with dark and well-cooked caramel, without any of the sweetness, which let the inherent flavour of the apples shine through as well. I think it must perhaps be a very judicious usage of sugar.
both dishes are in the classical style – seemingly simple flavours with showcase techniques, and really they excel far and beyond. I’m full of clichés like why reinvent the wheel if it ain’t broke, but it’s these so-deemed simple ones that require the most work to be standout.
truly contentment-breeding desserts in a nice atmosphere and friendly staff in a convenient locale, it’s been one of the best meals – we all have our definitions, don’t we? – I’ve had to date.

really huh? steak so-so leh. I think we only had one dessert, the souffle, wasn’t impressed.
this is a dessert-only post though, didnt have any steak – I thought the souffle was very good actually. almost definitely the best dessert I’ve had in singapore, and almost on par with the great restaurants in london. maybe I had a lucky run?
I think the souffle is about the same at L’atelier and Bistro du Vin, all very good but the best souffle I had was at Gobi Desserts at Joo Chiat. So ethereal.
I haven’t been back for long actually so my tasting pool isn’t as wide as your rather amazing repertoire! those are going on my list, thanks :D
Welcome back! Where have you been? Working or studying?
studying – and eating rather a bit – in london. truly great years!
Both of those desserts sound perfectly decadent!
I have to say they were pretty bliss-inducing :D
