2am : Dessert Bar, Singapore

I had to admit that I couldn't really recall all the details for the dishes I had here. Anyway, only 1 word in my memory for that night is "AWESOME !"

2am:dessert bar is located in the Holland Village.


Pastry chef from Noma, Denmark. Lucky she was there since the Food summit festival.


4 desserts from Rosio (wine matching) & 4 desserts from Janice


Bitters Dessert....Winter Version : whey discs, bitters syrup, milk crumbs, sorrel


Interesting flavour... the sorrel soup was tangy, the milk inside was creamy..like it!



The broth was poured at the table.


Hay Parfait & Strawberries : chamomile broth, lemon balm, oregano, bronze fennel

The wild strawberries have been my favourite since I first tried it at Quay (but I had the frozen one before at my workplace) , so I couldn't be happier when I saw the menu. Densely packed with flavour compared to their industrially grown one. The whole plate is again, interesting. Combination of the herbs and fruit.


Milk & Grains : milk ice cream, biodynamic grains

mmm.. I couldn't remember much but I think I like the grains.



We moved the table to the counter to see how they prepare the dessert. and a better light !


Janice Wong and Rosio Sanchez


We have the desserts with wine matching.




Huldreost Brown Cheese & Beet : brown cheese custard, beet granite, licorice

Love the presentation ! So many textures of beetroot and lucky the licorice is subtle (I am not a fan of licorice in dessert).



brown cheese for sample...

and then we moved on to Janice's Degustation.


Shades of Purple : purple potato, cassis parfait, lavender marshmallows

The plate consists of purple potato puree, blackberry parfait, leather, lavender marshmallows and fruit of the forest sorbet. I like the creamy purple potato puree underneath the most but I am not a big fan of parfait and marshmallows.


Basil White Chocolate : textures of passionfruit


Really like this... so many textures and flavours; passion fruit leather,coconut ice-cream, the puffy meringue, the sauce, the mousse and a tiny cluster of sea grapes! I especially liked the passion fruit leather. It's my first time having Sea grapes which are apparently a kind of seaweed. Delightful.


Cheese Avalanche : biscotti, marinated figs, cantaloupe


Now it is the 3rd plate of Janice's creation, when I was having the last one, Basil White Chocolate, I thought I like it..this one, I like it even more...Mix of sweet and savoury, fruity and dairy tastes, and crunchy and creamy textures.


The biscotti is nicely paper thin, crisp and got a chewy texture from fruits... Love this !


Chocolate H2O : caramel truffle, yuzu sorbet


OMG, what a beauty ! This is the beautiful finale..The consistency of an almost crunchy outer layer and the gooey goodness inside is sublime ! Inside, there is a chocolate caramel truffle. Having it with small balls of yuzu sorbet and gel and bits of praline is heaven !


Once I have this, I can die happily :)

ok.. it was about 1 am. something.. my stomach was full and my head was dizzy .


Rosio's desserts were very interesting, opened my world to the new flavour while Janice's were more familiar and easier (for me) to understand .. All I can say is I love every single detail of her works... Janice !
