"Consuming chocolate is very much like being in love, but better. It fills you up and keeps your tummy happy too!" — @thatgreedypig

The Chocolate Rhapsody ($18); one of the signature played desserts at @discoverthedark. Three scoops of The Dark Gallery's signature smooth and creamy dark, milk and white chocolate ice-cream on a bed of crunchy chocolate "soil", embellished with swirls of silky chocolate mousse, crispy chocolate meringue and shards of cacao tuile.
-
My favourite has got to be the (80%) dark chocolate ice-cream for its intense, bittersweet flavour.

Teh Cho-Co-Lat Gu You Gek ($22, 650g). Sounds like a mouthful but it is actually Matcha & White Chocolate Butter Cake. I like how the names of the new range of butter cakes are in #Hokkien and it's fun trying to read the names out loud.
-
My favourite out of the six butter cakes from @oldsengchoong although each of them is unique and good in its own way. Won't go wrong with matcha and white chocolate as they are a match made in heaven! Rich and decadent with distinct matcha taste. The subtle bitterness of the matcha is balanced with the sweetness of white chocolate chips.
-
Purists will adore the Gu You Gek ($18, 550g). Rich and buttery, the Original Butter Cake goes well with a cup of kopi.
-
Other butter cake variants include:
🔹Ang Zou Hup Toh Gu You Gek (Red Dates & Walnuts Butter Cake – $22, 650g)
🔹Long-an Gu You Gek (Longan Butter Cake – $22, 650g)
🔹Yu Kia Tung Gwa Teng Gu You Gek (Yuzu & Winter Melon Butter Cake – $26, 650g)
🔹Mui Qui Loh Gi Zi Gu You Gek (Wolfberries & Rose Wine Butter Cake, $26, 650g)

If you love Peranakan food and durian desserts, you may want to check the Peranakan Dinner Buffet ($48++ per adult/$24++ per child under 12 years) at Royale Restaurant (located at Mercure Singapore Bugis, level three).
-
Available every Friday, Saturday and PH till 30th June 2017, the buffet showcases over 20 Peranakan delights such as Babi Pongteh, Itek Sio, Nyonya Chap Chye and many more.

Golden Durian Pillow — egg crepe filled with creamy durian pulp.
-
PS: I love the durian mousse cake and mini durian puffs!

As its name suggests, this mousse cake is inspired by the French dessert — Crêpe Suzette (sans flambé). Beyond the peach (colour) exterior lies a multi-layered mousse cake with complementary flavours and textural contrasts — a slightly dense, nutty Santiago tart base; buttery Dulcey cremeux with Valrhona crunchy chocolate pearls; soft, chewy orange caramel; and Grand Marnier infused white chocolate (Ivoire 35%) mousse enveloping the layers. Sounds complex but the components of the entremet complement each other well. Also, the cake is not too sweet.
-
Pair the cake with a pot of tea from @antea.social. The recommended tea to pair with the Suzette is Ding Dong Oolong; a medium roast oolong tea that is well-balanced with smooth, bittersweet finish.

Nutella Nachos ($10) from Vatos Urban Tacos, a Korean-inspired Mexican restaurant voted by CNN as the ‘Hottest New Restaurant in Seoul”.
-
Crispy tortilla triangles coated with sugar-cinnamon mixture, loaded with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and liberally drizzled with Nutella sauce. So addictive yet so sinful, it’s definitely “nacho” average dessert. #punintended

A dessert inspired by the traditional Haupia (Hawaiian Coconut Pudding).
-
Coconut Chantilly cream, desiccated coconut sponge cake, nata de coco and vanilla ice-cream encased in a #Valrhona dark chocolate sphere. Served with warm chocolate sauce.
-
Melt the chocolate sphere by drizzling it with the warm chocolate sauce to reveal the sweet treats within.
-
PS: Loving the view and vibes at #Olabeachclub. I can spend the whole afternoon here, chilling and enjoying the sea breeze while munching on light bites and sipping cocktail. #thisislife

Bibik's Pandan Jade Yule Log (1kg, $65), one of #EllenboroughMarketCafe's festive takeaway treats. Enveloping the soft and fluffy cylindrical sponge cake is a layer of aromatic pandan kaya custard. The same custard is used as the filling for the log cake too. The custard/agar-like pandan kaya layer has the texture similar to the pandan layer of those Peranakan kueh. Very interesting texture for a log cake. I like! I feel 'healthier' consuming the log cake as compared to the usual fresh cream-based log cakes. #noguilt Light, fragrant and not so heavy on the palate; it's the perfect dessert to serve your guests after a heavy meal on Xmas day!

Salted Egg Yolk Soufflé ($3.80 with an order of Workforce Hero Set Meal*, U.P $10.80).

*The Workforce Hero Set Lunch is actually quite worth it. For $17.90, you can get a main course, starter size salad and freshly brewed tea OR a main course size salad, soup of the day and refreshing fruit tea.

One of Tarte's latest flavour.

Homemade pandan kaya with a layer of coconut frangipane, encased in a sweet pastry crust and adorned with toasted desiccated coconut. Loving the intense kaya flavour albeit a little sweet as compared to the other tarts.

Yam paste, or orh nee, is a popular Teochew dessert. Steamed yam paste mashed till fine texture, topped with soft gingko nuts and thin slices of steamed pumpkin and aromatic coconut milk.

So creamy so good!! A great finale to an awesome meal!

Becos all meals should end with dessert. Chef Stéphanie Le Quellec's interpretation of Guanaja Dark Chocolate. A deconstructed dark chocolate dessert. Dollops of chocolate, coffee mousse, chocolate sponge cake & a sprinkle of anise seeds.

3 thick slices of buttered toast (cut into cubes) topped with matcha ice cream, matcha macaron & matcha almond brittle. Drizzled liberally with whipped cream & swirls of matcha sauce. #sugarhigh

Each cube of toast was crispy with slight hint of honey but I wished they were slathered with more butter. The toast crust was hard and difficult to slice through with a knife.

Oh, I forgot about the almost non existent Azuki beans. Was disappointed that my toast came with less than a teaspoon of Azuki beans. Give me more Azuki beans and I will be a happy girl.

The toast was so #instagramworthy and I guess everyone was dazzled by the beauty of the toast, staff included. Some of them were in a daze apparently & it was quite hard to get their attention. That said, some were quick in responding thou'. Well, the cafe is still in the soft launch stage, so bound to have teething issues. Just hope that they will be ironed out by the next visit.

PS: Worried about the queue? Try going on a weekday afternoon if you can. There wasn't any queue when I was there.
