Out of the Pan
#B1-45 Raffles City Shopping Centre
Zhi Peng and I walked to City Hall with the intention of eating desserts at Canele. But alas, we reached too late and they were closed. Then, we decided to go Menotti instead but it has closed down! Is this unluckiness due to Friday the 13th? In the end, we went to Out of the Pan since it was still open.
The Tiramisu ($12++) is wrapped in a sweet crepe and served with espresso ice cream. Presentation is excellent but not so taste wise. The crepe spoils the whole dessert. It’s too floury and tastes a tad too rubbery.
When we cut into the crepe, the tiramisu just came apart and resulted in a mess. The proportion of mascarpone cheese to biscuit is also skewed, with the former dominating the whole dessert. Seriously, I wouldn’t recommend this and better tiramisu can be found at this price tag.
The Iced Maple Pecan Tart ($9.50++) fares slightly better. Caramel pecan pieces are baked with maple treacle and served with maple parfait.
The description on the menu is rather misleading as I expected a layered dessert (that’s what a parfait is about, isn't it?) instead. Overall, this tastes rather bland without the sweetness of maple.
This seems to be a rather popular place as there were still many diners despite the late hour.
But this is certainly not the place to come for desserts. I certainly wouldn't come back again.
