Before you start snapping away, do check out the dessert menu and make your order first. This hidden dessert place can get pretty crowded during peak hours. As with all handmade desserts, do allow for some preparation time for the desserts to be ready.
The Soufflés are prepared freshly in house with 8 selections. Soufflé available in Tiramisu, chocolate dirty, seaweed floss, black swan, mango, brown sugar, newly added strawberry and caramelised sugar flavour.
The pastry chef will cooked the soufflé from the stacks of whipped batter on a heated hotplate and cover to “bake” with the low heat from the hotplate. The batter is cooked on each side with a précised timing to achieve the perfect doneness and texture.
This is the newly added caramelised sugar flavour with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream to contrast with the warm soufflé. The topping is a lightly browned sugared creamy custardy coat over the soufflé. Freshly cut banana to add some body to the airy and soft texture.
Coconut Ice cream in a shell – the pulp of the coconut is carved out and cut into bite size chunks atop a base of coconut flavoured ice cream in the shell. Some browned crispy bits are added as a finishing touch for some extra crunch.
Mix the craved out coconut chunks with the creamy ice cream for an intense experience of milky coconut shiok-ness. Fans of Mr Coconut will probably love this zhng version of visible crunchy coconut pulp with the ice cream.
For those who are regulars of Smile Dessert, this is one of the signature instagrammable dessert on their menu. The Matcha lava cake – made up of layers of matcha sponge cake, whipped cream, chocolate crunch, layer of sponge cake, whipped cream, lot of sweet red beans and sponge cake again to complete the cake outlook.
The handmade layered cake is then wrapped tightly with a clear food grade clear film to form a cylindrical top to hold the lava. The cake is then piped with Matcha flavour lava cream and chewy mocha balls. To enjoy the cake, lift up the film and watch the lava cascade over the cake. Capture this moment for your gram!
