Awfully Chocolate has already been around for 12 long years and it’s apparently still going strong, bravo to that! I’ve never tried any of their desserts before, mainly cuz it used to merely sell takeaway whole cakes which I’m not interested in. Recently, the concept boutiques offer more choices with a couple of tables for in-house dining so this time, I went all out for chocolate chocolate chocolate~
First on agenda: the awfully hei 黑 ice cream ! $3.80++ for a single scoop of premium sugar rush, packed in a cute paper holder.
This is a blend of their house chocolate with Belgian 70% dark chocolate and the low air content makes this rich enough to please me. And thanks to the pure cream, eggs and milk in the ingredient list, the creamy texture is <3! I wish I have a pint (or two) with me now…
Second on agenda: Super Stacked Chocolate Cake. This is sold by weight ($6.50 per 100g) and you can tell how “professional” the staff’s skill of cutting cake is by looking at the photo below -___-
Though the presentation fails in my book, the taste makes up for it. The cake itself is pretty normal, just soft sponge sandwiching too-thin layers of fudge. Simplicity is the word here and the best part to me is the moist outer fudgy fudge coating!
Third on agenda: Cold Poached Chocolate ($7.10).
I find that the texture is a cross between a soft mousse and ice cream. Whatever it is, it’s sure to send you into chocolate coma cuz it’s so dense and intensely rich.
Note that the liqueur cream on top is optional. I didn’t know that till I received the bill. Mine was with honey malt whiskey cream and given a choice, I would just order the plain poached chocolate ($5.60) cuz the cream was well, just not my kind of thing. I actually scrapped it all off to better enjoy the chocolate buried underneath =)
Fourth and last on agenda: Hand cut Chocolate truffles!
Dark chocolate truffles ($13 per 100g) and kahlua bars ($15 per 100g) are sold by weight. Just to give you a gauge, the two small pieces below cost $4.80.
These didn’t elicit any excited response from me after I popped them into my mouth. Just normal truffles and sadly, they didn’t have that melt-in-the-mouth effect. Sigh, I’m spoilt by the truffles from Europe~
With that, my monthly weekly quota for chocolate has been filled, phew. While I’m not exactly a big fan of the cakes and truffles, that fabulous hei ice cream is going to keep me going back for more!
