This is a very late post! *just a heads up after some people asked me if im still staying in Singapore. haha.. Well, as much as i want to, now, I’m in Jakarta people.. =)
I was in Singapore last month for work. Since i love to try new things, I used my free time to catch up with few friends and try a few cafes that we never been to. And one of it is 2am Dessert Bar by Janice Wong. Well, actually a chef friend of mine is the one who asked us to go to this place. He needs to find some inspiration, he said.
and so, we went there in the afternoon, right after our Padang lunch. haha.. Yes, i lovee Singapore Padang food, somehow it taste nicer than Jakarta. i dont know why though.. haha.. maybe it was my comfort food back there.
When we first entered the cafe, i thought we were entering some night club. haha.. They are located at the second floor, and we have to take the stairs with almost no light at the staircase. No wonder they called it a dessert BAR though.
This is a perfect place for you who love to try those dessert that you can only see at ‘Master Chef’s show’ haha. some pretty dessert that is called ‘Molecular Gastronomy’.
So, we got this this cute astronomical chocolate for the welcome dessert. and look how they plate it! it feels like the whole galaxy is on the table.
We ordered 3 fancy desserts that day.
The first one is , Shades of Green. which consist of Pistachio Sponge. A tender and soft, but too little for us tho. Haha.. Accompanied with Coconut Mouse, which is a little to sweet for me, and tasty Pandan Ice Cream! with Pistachio crumbs. We think this is the most edible and a nice dessert combination.
The second one is Tiramisu with Kahlua Jelly, Espresso Ice Cream. It came in one huge bowl, which make us the non-photographer confused on how to capture it. Duhh.. so, it was the less photogenic dessert of the day. I have to say that it was the most normal dessert. The safest choice of all.. hehe.. and speaking about Tiramisu, i guess those in Da Paolo is more worth it compared to this one.
And The third one, which is the prettiest of all, is Cassis Plum. It consist of Cassis Bombe, Edelflower Yoghurt Foam, Choya Granita, Yuzu Pearls, Yuzu Rubies. As for me, everything is too sour that i cant enjoy it all. =(.. but loving their Yuzu Pearls and rubies.
I have to say that Janice Wong bring all dessert to a whole new level! All dessert seems like an art, they accurately put everything in it’s place. Which makes you feel guilty if you ruin the art by eating it. haha..
This 2am dessert bar is a little pricy. but i guess it is worth the try, more over if you are a gastronomy enthusiast!
