Awfully Chocolate‘s ‘hei 黑‘ is the best dark chocolate ice cream in Singapore, methinks. Tried it for the first time in 2010 and 2 years on, I’m still loving it! It’s so rich, so creamy, and so ‘gao’ (read: thick in Hokkien) that I shall hereby classify it under “nosebleed-worthy”, haha.
P.S. Laurent Bernard‘s chocolate souffle falls under that category too!
Anyway, there we were, on the way to get a double scoop takeout of hei ($6.80) after dinner when we passed by Mooshi Bakes. Checked out the menu, liked what we saw, and we promised to be back. So we did! : )
Like Loola’s, Mooshi Bakes is the restaurant (or brasserie) arm under the Awfully Chocolate group. While Loola’s has a sophisticated vibe, Mooshi Bakes is definitely more casual, a shorts-tee-flip flops type of place. Though menus at both outlets differ, the mega awesome souffle omelette ($18+) is also found here! Happy to report that it’s as huge and fluffy as the one from Loola’s, and much cheaper too! Truffle oil scrambled eggs ($16+) and mushroom benedict ($15+)were so-so, didn’t rock my world like that yummy souffle omelette~
Besides hei, we’ve found a new love in the pandan tart ($7+)! Looks normal, tastes anything but. Very fragrant and the mild sweetness was spot on for me. And despite there being no kaya in it (I think), my childhood Bengawan Solo pandan kaya cake came to mind! Strange huh *shrug*
And of course, another double scoop of hei ice cream ($6.80+) is a must!
