Chocolate Pudding Pie
Those who prefer more mousse than sponge(like me) would like this.the quality of the chocolate used here is not too different from Canele or Bonheur. The presentation though dark and plain, is the one that pleased me the most. The top layer was given a cocoa dust coating, like many hills sitted together. It's very dense and rich, good with tea or coffee but I had it together with the lemon bar below.
|The Lemon Chiffon Pie |
biscuit base, lemon custard/curd, meringue
Hmm, I think it is very misleading to name it this way. Definitely don't expect your chiffon here. Perhaps it is the airy and very light lemon curd here or lemon custard?? that would fit it's name. It really looks like a lemon meringue pie doesn't it? But you would be surprise that the lemon layer is very sour and soft, quite different from the usual thick lemon curd in the classic version. Of cos no one would say that meringue is not sweet, but I enjoy the texture of the lemon here,it's really tangy.

|Brown Sugar Walnut Pie|
This one is choked with walnuts but yet the price is the cheapest among all. This is very rustic old school bar that is really sweet gooey and sticky. I would prefer if the marshmallows are not added. But the chocolate mini balls gave a contrasting texture.
If you like monkey bread or sticky buns you might enjoy this.
|Sweet potato pie |
Whipped cream,sweet potato and a slightly moist base
Another Southern US Bar
This one is sweet but less sweet than the brown sugar pie, hopefully because it is the sweet potato and not too much additional sugar.luckily, the sweetness is still acceptable because of the spices that balanced it as the Japanese version would be much sweeter than this. The base was rather disappointing as I would prefer sth more crunchy to go with the dense layers on top.
|Chocolate Caramel Cupcake|
the only cupcake I have tried from here
|Moist and chocolatety cupcake that has soaked up some ganache|
The bars go from $4.80 onwards to around $8.
And don't be mistaken that they only have cakes. It is a cafe restaurant that serves all day breakfast, cheese burgers, Mac and cheese,hotdogs,sides,desserts. I haven't try alot yet so up till now I better reserve the comments first.
|All day breakfast|
Choice of style of eggs(sunny up here),bacon and english muffin
During a gathering, Pigo ordered this because the eggs Benedict set ran out of stock. Well, I don't really understand why they could not serve the other set because aren't te ingredients actually quite similar?
|Eggs with Salt & Pepper|
The English muffin was toasted till quite crispy but we thought it would look like a typical mc Donalds version but apparently it isn't.the yolks were runny but the bacon weren't that crispy. For the price in such a high flow shopping mall, I think it is quite average and simple fare.
|The hot iron waffle with salted caramel($10)|
Where's my whipped cream or butter AND 1 scoop of ice cream?
No wonder the sauce was not enough
However, do note if they served whipped butter or cream along this because it was on the menu. I sensed sth was missing but did not take note because we were busy chatting.
But I asked for two more servings of salted caramel because it was insufficient to go with the huge waffle.
I think it is a good way to try their salted caramel sauce because they do sell them in jars call milk jam, the Delicious Dulce Du Leche that is made by cooking milk slowly for hours until it reaches a caramelized gooey state that is very rich.
Back to waffle, after a while, it turned soft already. So have to eat it while it's hot.
Hmm, as the reviews for the restaurant food are mixed with good and bad, I think we need to try other in order to judge. But so far the food is acceptable but nothing exceptional.I was unimpressed by it's carelessness or forgetfulness in serving it's food.
Nevertheless, I looked forward to trying more of his creations at Antoinette in Mandarin Gallery since the Penhas outlet at Lavender is too far away. Because I've heard that they are selling my favourite St Honore.
