Loola’s by Awfully Chocolate is a pleasant surprise.
I thought it’d be a highly commercialized restaurant targeted at one-time customers who happen to be in Esplanade for a show or something. In other words, mediocre food without heart and soul. But boy, am I wrong. So wrong, because I like this place. Breads are baked from scratch, sauces are made from stocks, cakes are baked by hand. True, service can be faster, but we’ve got the whole afternoon to kill so that’s not a negative : )
Egg white omelette ($22++): creamy souffle egg white, truffle oil, toast, herb butter.
Loola’s calls this “the fluffiest omelette in the world”. Not too sure about that claim, but it’s plenty delicious!
Souffle omelette ($22++): red cheddar, parmesan, sauteed mushroom, toast.
My hand is small, but that omelette is really HUGE!! *LIKES*
Pan seared braised pork belly ($28++): honey pork belly, lotus root chips, bubble and squeak (in layman’s terms, traditional English dish made from leftover veggies).
To me, the best dessert from Awfully Chocolate is the hei ice cream. Period. Thankfully, all the desserts here are served with a scoop of that yummy dark icy treat, hee. Portions are P.S. Cafe-ish humongous so sharing is a great idea. We didn’t though, haha. One each, in typical foodies’ style! : )
Hazel crumble ($14++): whole wheat biscuit base, thick hazelnut chocolate layer, crumble, dark chocolate ice cream.
Lemon yogurt cake ($12++): citrus infused moist cake, light lemon cream cheese, dark chocolate ice cream.
Chocolate tart ($12++): dense baked chocolate filling, rich chocolate glaze, cookie base, dark chocolate ice cream.
