Eating is Singaporeans' passion and here at ASOS, we feature the food that are worth the calories and distance. We enjoy all kinds of cuisine from western to hawker fare to Indonesia to desserts - who can resist them? You may be in for a treat once in a while when the foodie is in the mood to share her special recipe for baked goods. Food feeds the soul and we believe good food should be enjoyed by everyone from all walks of life.
Happened to be around Esplanade area to standby for Chingay's on a Saturday afternoon and chanced upon this cafe for some sweet treats. Warning: Please read this after your meal!
We were at a loss of what to choose cos all looked really awesome especially the cupcakes. So in the end we minimainiminimo and...
We chose Hazel Crumble that came with a scoop of Awfully Chocolate's signature chocolate ice cream. I like the mixture of the slight saltiness of the hazel crumble on top of the dense and moist chocolate cake! Even though it seems like an overkill, but the mixture of the cake plus the chocolate ice cream was so good!
The only gripe I had was the price of this dessert. Even though it's located at a tourist attraction, $12 (without GST & service charge) for this is quite overpriced to me.
Moreover, the latte was a huge disappointment. It was scalding hot and the latteart looked so halfhearted! We had to wait for a while for it to be drinkable and the coffee was not as kickass as we expected it to be. Even after we hinted to the waitress that the temperature of the coffee is not acceptable, the only solution she came back with was to add cold milk. I heard "Aiyo aiyo ai ai yo..." in my head at her lacklustre service. But luckily the dessert saved the day, really.
As much as I would love to recommend the dessert to my friends to try at Loola's, I feel that the money can be better spent elsewhere for equally awesome dessert at a more affordable price. However it is a nice place to chill at Esplanade while waiting for a concert or gig to start. Maybe you can try the iced drinks instead! ;)
