Chocolate Destenation (DeSté)

I really liked the al-fresco style of having desserts here. The cafe is cosy and had a good ambience. They served a variety of desserts, cakes, gelato, freeze, smoothies and frappucino.

tiramisu - $7.80

I initally wanted to have their Black Forest, but it was sold out. So I had this Tiramisu instead. This was topped with mascarpone cream with coffee-soaked ladyfingers, chocolate pearls and dusting of grand cru cocoa powder. The coffee-soaked ladyfingers were really really nice with a little bit of moist.

Stefano's Grandma Cake - $7.80

My friend had this grandma’s cake. It is a home-styled apple pie with meringue, almonds and chocolate streusel. I thought it also tasted of cinnamon when I tried it. Not as nice as my tiramisu.

Some other cakes include:

For now, there are several promotions namely the dessert degustation set @ $14.80+ (daily from noon to 6 pm) which includes a pastry of your choice, one chocolate bon bon, a scoop of gelato and coffee / tea. Alternatively, enjoy a 1-for-1 Hot Chocolate on Tuesday or Ladies Night on Wednesday for a 1-for-1 Chocolate Cocktail and Wine from 5 pm till late.

Definitely coming back to try more of their desserts!

10% discount using AMEX, UOB and Citibank credit cards.

Free-flow of ice-water to wash down the sweetness of your desserts!! Prices exclude 7% GST and 10% service charges.
