Canele Patisserie Chocolaterie #2
#B1-81/82, Raffles City Shopping Centre
6334 7377

Friends wanted a great dessert place after that disappointing dinner and yours truly suggested Canele since it is around the area and the quality is always good for a sugar fix.

Recently, I'm smitten with all things chestnut (and sesame!) so Mont Blanc ($6.50++) satisfied my craving perfectly. The chestnut cream was fragrant yet not too sweet while the embedded candied chestnut was a nice surprise. I didn't even mind the almond tart which was used as the base instead of sponge cake. This would be near perfection if only there wasn't any chantilly cream!

The Tiramisu ($6.50++) was almost boring. This Italian classic failed to impress me as there wasn't any hint of marsala, rum or brandy.

I spotted this cake on other tables and wanted to try it too. Dark chocolate lovers would like the Caraibe ($8.50++). 66% dark chocolate cream and sponge cake is covered with a layer of hazelnut nougatine and almond chocolate glaze. This was fabulous at first but the law of diminishing returns quickly kicked in as this was a rather heavy dessert.

This is still one of my favourite places for desserts with its elegantly shaped cakes and pastries!

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!
