Au Chocolat

Au Chocolat opened recently 3 months ago in Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. It is a French-inspired concept store that not only sells retail goodies, but also decadent meals and desserts. Guess what? The owners are Singaporeans!

 <Strawberry Tart>

A special only available on weekends and I'm glad I was there. The tart was fabulous! The buttery pastry, the sourness of the strawberries, the lightly-sweetened Chantilly cream with vanilla beans that can be seen in it, the fragrance of the toasted nuts and there is even a layer of sponge cake at the bottom of the cream. Total experience of flavours and textures. Thumbs up!

<Lemon Meringue Tart>

I've always loved Lemon Meringue tarts for their balance of sweetness and sourness. This one totally did not disappoint. It is definitely better than the one I had from Delicious in Malaysia. The consistency and taste of the lemon curd was perfectly velvety, slightly sweet with a good kick of sourness. The meringue was also torched with utmost care and skill with no hint of burnt smell. To top it off, the candied lemon added a much-needed change of texture to the dessert. I'll definitely be back there to try their main courses.

Ambience - Good
Food - Good
