still utterly fantastic, and wonderfully enjoyable dessert at the marina bay sands. it is understating it to say that this place is now my favorite in singapore – and no, I’ve not had their steak, and no, I’m not quite planning to. I have an incorrigible sweet tooth, and it aches for this behemoth of a chocolate souffle.
their other desserts are pretty much up there with the best I’ve had locally, but it’s the souffle that shines – there’s some magic in the substantial lightness, and all the textures and temperatures in it. I could wax lyrical all day (and I’ve done it once before), but really, just look at it – chocolate sauce dribbling down the side while creme fraiche and ice cream sink their slow way into that airy nest of chocolate.
but you’ve heard me say all this before – so I’ll try to spare you further expostulation. suffice to say that the standard’s consistent, the chocolate deep and satisfying – well worth any gym-rat behavior.
we also managed two other desserts this time – a deconstructed banana cream pie of creme brulee, chocolate pearls and a caramel banana ice cream; and a chocolate hazelnut marjolaine cake with caramel popcorn and salted popcorn ice cream.
both were pretty good – and I especially liked the the chocolate-hazelnut slice (though I might be biased as a newtella addict), though the accompanying popcorn seemed a little staleish. small detail though – we lapped everything up.
the place is dark and intimate, service friendly and efficient – and really, the prices aren’t low but I’m more than happy to spend it here for the quality and portions. most definitely my favorite place here.
