Max Brenner Singapore

I love this bald man. Because it was one of the first overseas chocolate brands that opened my eyes to a whole new world of fine chocolates.
I had fond memories of the good melt-in-your-mouth truffles and also the desserts at the first outlet in Singapore n years ago. A Japanese friend came visiting one day and wanted to try some chocolate desserts and I led her to Max Brenner since it was not found in Japan yet.
The Suckao ($7.90), a d-i-y concentrated hot chocolate drink, was still as decadent as the last time. There was only one choice of chocolate, and we went for the dark side. Thick and rich, the hot chocolate shot was a fun toy to play with but wouldn't it be great if they can just serve all three kinds and allow diners to mix around freely?
The desserts all sounded very good on the menu, though they leaned on the pricey side. Loved the Tutti Frutti Waffle ($18.90) because the waffles made with Belgium sugar were so fragrant and buttery. The sugar gave it a solid crunchy exterior while the inner dough was thoroughly baked with no hints of wimpy-ness.
However, the O.M.G Double Chocolate Cookie made us go "O.M.G." for a wrong reason. Not only was it difficult to saw with knife and fork, it created so much cling clang on the plate that the noise hazard invited unnecessary attention from other tables. It was surely sweet and tasty, but why would someone pay around $10 for one piece of homemade like cookie and fresh squeezed orange juice sauce?

But I guess it all boils down to our choices and there are many other delicious-sounding items on the menu which I have yet to try. The endorphins stimulated from the amount of chocolate intake definitely made us happy. At least we did not have to queue for 3 hours like what the Japanese are doing now at the Max Brenner outlet in Omotesando Hills.
