Marmalade Pantry
#B1-08 Palais Renaissance
6734 2700

How can we celebrate a birthday without a proper birthday cake?

We brought Yoke Yee to Marmalade Pantry for this purpose.



Being a cheesecake lover, I’m not surprised that she chose the Brownie Cheesecake ($8.20++) as her birthday cake. Since I don’t eat cheesecake, I can’t comment much on it.



But for the price, this is quite value for money since the slice of cheesecake is quite big. I tried a little but it was too cheesy for me.

The Sticky Date Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream ($12++) is pure goodness. It’s served warm and eating it with the cold ice cream really makes this an “oomph” dessert.


I was pleasantly surprised that the pudding was not as sweet as I though it would be and I could make out the chopped dates. Also, it’s strange that this bistro known for desserts does not have any other ice cream flavors besides vanilla.



Service was quite prompt, with the waiters refilling our water without us asking. The bistro is a very nice place to meet up with friends or just spending the afternoon alone reading a book while enjoying their desserts. Apparently, this flagship outlet is also a popular place for Tai-Tais to gather and chit chat.

Happy 20th Birthday, Yoke Yee! I love you, friend!

WELCOME!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
