Desert Desserts? Never!

Desert Desserts? Never!

Mostly raves, plus a couple of rants about the assortment of sweet treats I have tried.

The desserts here are outstanding. We tried every one on the menu and I would happily re-order any of them in a heartbeat but this was one of my favourites.
Exquisitely crafted, the design is meant to mimic the snow-capped Mont Blanc mountain. The chestnut cream is on the inside of the meringue instead of the conventional outside too. To counter the sweetness, it is served with a scoop of blackcurrant sorbet.
Don’t order this to share because you will regret it.

This special Valentine’s Day Gift Set by @laderach_singapore is a real treat! Not only does the beautiful blonde wooden box contain a dozen large Swiss Miss Strawberries, but also a heap of large 56% dark chocolate buttons. Meant to be melted into a thick silky liquid for dipping the fruit in, these are essentially the same chocolate used in most of #Laderach’s hugely popular dark chocolate #frischschoggi variants. And just like wine, chocolate too possesses tasting notes. In this, you can expect to encounter hints of plums, berries and bananas on your palate as you bite into the juicy strawberry.

Pre-orders have begun. To place yours, just tap on @laderach_singapore’s link-in-bio on Instagram.

@pistachio.everything’s ice-cream (not gelato!) is remarkably creamy, deeply nutty and intense in pistachio flavour, because Kenneth (@themixtapechef) uses the nuts from Bronte, Sicily which are regarded as the best in the world. And to it off, quite literally, each pint has chopped pistachios sprinkled on as well. No wonder @dineshb is obsessed with it. Lucky for me the good man believes in spreading the word about it by spreading the calories, so thank you very much for the treat, Dinesh 😄.

If you are a fan of the nut, this is the ice-cream to order pronto. I think it says on their Instagram that they open for orders every Monday at 12noon. But please double-check.

A gorgeously crafted structure, this dessert is very well-balanced in flavour and delivers an enjoyable mouthfeel due to its composition of raspberry white chocolate ice cream, butter cookies, tiny crunchy chocolate balls and meringue. It even comes with a show-stopping finale of a flambé of rum right at your table.
Oh, one last thing. Make sure you leave enough belly space for this because it is huge!

Nothing beats gobbling down Bunyols-de-vent (mini donuts) straight out of the fryer. Dusted in cinnamon and sugar, they are still sticky-soft within.
Unless you have a really sweet tooth, I would recommend going easy on the ice-cream and dip as they’re both made with Dulce de Leche and are decidedly sweet. The donuts are already very good on their own anyway.

Although I am not a fan of durians, my family members who are, thought these were lovely. Conveniently packed into cardboard cubes, the durian flavour of the ice-cream was strong and it wasn’t too sweet. They were even little bits of durian flesh mixed into the ice-cream.

Yes, home-based but professionally-trained Pastry Chef Audrey and her team have been busy dreaming up and experimenting in their kitchen. So, besides her popular signature, the classic Banana Pudding, you can dive into even more extraordinary fluffiness in the delectable flavours of Thai Milk Tea, Chocolate Oreo, Matcha, Earl Grey and Black Sesame.

When your favourite brand of Mille Crêpes becomes available in Pistachio, one of your all-time favourite flavours for anything, it’s cause for cartwheels of joy.
Besides the pistachio paste which is potent in its distinct toasty-nutty fragrance, crushed pistachios are scattered around the rim too. So this variation of @LadyMsg’s mille crepe cake tastes and feels even more luxurious than usual.
If you want a bite, don’t wait to pop into a Lady M boutique or visit their online store (link in their Instagram bio) because this seasonal flavour is only available for a limited period.

Thanks very much Nikky for arranging this delivery 🤗

@tspoflove’s take on the trending #BurntCheesecake is special because they are first and foremost, purveyors of direct-from-farm single origin tea from places such as the Phoenix Mountains of China, Taiwan and Sri Lanka.
So for this bake, they have cleverly infused “Da Hong Pao”, an artisanal roasted #Oolong tea from the Wu Yi Mountains of Fujian province that’s regarded as one of the best there. The beautiful lingering fragrance of the full-bodied tea is unmistakable. It permeates each bite with a subtle smoky-sweet, woody-fruit dimension, creating a welcome balancing to the inherent richness of this style of #cheesecake.
At last night’s family dinner, when I sliced it for everyone to share, the consensus was clear - everyone loved it too.

Before eating, I followed @restaurantibid’s instructions to pop it into the oven at 180 degrees for 8 minutes. Once it got nice and hot, I cut a slice and topped it with a scoop of their “Milky #Oolong” ice-cream, a flavour Chef-owner @woowaileong describes as “Chinese vanilla” which I find very apt because there is a delicate sweet fragrance to its milkiness. The combination was mesmerising as the soft and chewy #cake exuded its own aroma from the black grains. @huatkaliao while eating, heaped so many compliments on it, I’m sure if cakes could blush, this one would have.

Say this out loud: “Ardèche Chestnut with Rum Ice-cream” and just like that, a yearning for a taste is born. Knowing it is made from scratch in-house by Three MICHELIN Starred “Les Amis” bequeaths that little seed of desire with a sudden growth spurt.
I regale this with confidence having experienced it all. Time was suspended for a few seconds as I contemplated my choices (“Piedmont Hazelnut” and “Blue Mountain Coffee” were doing their darndest to get my attention) but it was my curiosity of whether the “Ardèche Chestnut with Rum Ice-cream” would be a cold and creamy equivalent of a “Mont Blanc” dessert that drowned them out. Well, guess what? I was not wrong. Very, very pleased with my choice. What an astonishment of intense flavour it revealed itself to be.

Priced between $28 and $55 a box, the ice-creams by Chef Sebastien and his team are a steal. Honestly, many of the offerings by Singapore’s Three MICHELIN Starred restaurants have never been as accessible as they are now. So it’s not a bad idea to make the most of this silver lining and #supportlocal as you do your part to #savefnbsg.
