Celebrated a lonesome Valentine’s splurging on Antoinette’s special La Rose ($12.00) posed in delicate dark chocolate chantilly petals with grand cru chocolate mousse layered with exotic caramel, crunchy almond nougatine and moist cocoa sponge soaked in grand mariner. My type of rose.
Too pretty to be consumed, the creation tasted just as good as it looked as the luscious mousse and chantilly was rich but not cloying so. The hint of tanginess from the exotic caramel also complemented the other elements.
Signature Country Style Mushroom Soup with toasted country bread ($13) 👍🏻Rich & Flavourful
Savory Blinis with Sautéed Creamy Mushrooms, Grilled Bacon, Tomato and Salad ($18) 👍🏻Very fluffy pancakes & surprisingly good when served as a savory
Seafood Alio Olio ($26) 👍🏻Tasty pasta in white wine sauce with fresh scallops, squids, prawns and mussels
Crab Pomodoro ($26) 👌🏻Slightly spicy for me but delighted by the generous crab meat soaked in the clam broth
Boeuf Bourguigon ($36) 👎🏻Sadly the braised wagyu brisket in red wine was not to my liking as the beef was not fantastic & the sauce was not tasty
Ballotine de Poulet a la Grandmere ($28.50) 👎🏻This was the most disappointing dish as the stuffed roasted chicken leg had no wow factor at all
Wild Mushroom Risotto ($24) 👍🏻Love how well the creamy arborio rice was simmered in white wine
Concorde ($22) 👎🏻This savory crepe with roasted chicken & bacon was just average & ordinary
Forest Berries Tea and French Apple Tart ($9.50 per pot) 👍🏻These caffeine free new teas were just right to compliment with the cakes
Superlova ($10) Lovely pink cake and we love the rose finger sponge, lychee, yuzu cream & rose macaron though this was slightly too sweet to have it all by oneself
Ang Bao ($10) 👍🏻Dark chocolate mousse with caramel mandarin cremeux, cashew nut nougatine and cocoa sponge cake was just delightful
Charlotte III ($9) 👍🏻Our love of the night! Strawberry mousse, forest berries jelly, chiffon cake, white chocolate vanilla cream was just the perfect dessert to round up the nite
Missing this bake that rode the waves of the cheese tart trend high last year. Cupped in flaky puff pastry are seven types of cheese molten into one gloriously velvety blend.
A four-layer savoury sandwich cake with pretty pink beetroot cream cheese chantilly and adorned with a medley of roasted vegetables. Somewhat like Swedish #Smorgastarta. A refreshing change from the usual Christmas cakes.

Review by a friend:
This elegant dessert is both satisfying and a visual feast.
Typical rose flavoured desserts have a tendency to easily cloy your tastebuds, this exquisite rose petal mousse log cake has just the right hint of citrus. Rose finger sponge with raspberry jelly, raspberry caviar & crumble is delectably lifted by the yuzu cream.
While the portion may be considered small for some (pictured medium, slightly longer than my hand size), I would say this is perfect to share among a couple of friends. Not to mention it gives you all the more reason to continue indulging in @antoinette_sg 's other desserts!
It was all too easy to conquer this "Mont Blanc". Base camp was a crunchy almond tart while the "snow"-dusted trail leading up was made from smooth chestnut cream. Within the mini mountain lay a core of my favourite vanilla chantilly cream and little bits of candied chestnuts.
I may not be into desserts or pastries that feature chestnuts generally, but this, I liked a lot.
One of the Best I have tried, should come during teatime break as it will sold out fast
Light almond sponge cake, drizzled with a raspberry eau de vie and topped with a smooth vanilla Chantilly, then filled with a pistachio crème mousseline and crisp Japanese Chitose strawberries. #MediaInvite

Check out @chef_pang @antoinette_sg new Chocolat Fetish with Valrhona Chocolates that is happening till the end of October! It's a chocolate feast this time. Super adore this Macaron Burger ($12) with a chocolate ganache “patty”, apricot “cheese”, raspberry “ketchup”, salted caramel cream “mustard” and white chocolate “lettuce” between chocolate macaron shells. More on www.ms-skinnyfat.com Active link in bio!
The chocolate taste here was bolder and stronger than the salmon dish, which was quite interesting because since when does anyone eat beef with chocolate? But try this with an open mind and you will be pleasantly surprised at how complementary the chocolate and beef was. A very rich dish due to the fatty braised wagyu beef and thick creamy chocolate sauce, this is best shared with someone. Worth mentioning was also the handmade parpadelle pasta. It was al dente and the sauce was able to coat each strand sufficiently.
Currently craving for something sour and sweet; finally the struggles of cutting down sugar feel so real. And looking at this dessert makes it worse. My favourite element was sadly not the strips of french meringue, but the refreshingly bold passion fruit banana sorbet. I would rather have the crepe and sorbet without those pavlova and vanilla creme chantilly. Oh, and I thought the chocolate sauce was kinda a misfit in the dish.
Bf and I tried 5 items from the menu and we agreed that this was our favourite. He loved how 'medium' the flesh of the salmon was, and I loved how crisp the salmon skin was 😂. The white chocolate hollandiase sauce was creamy yet not overly sweet, and the green apple slices at the side complemented the dish well. We only wished the salmon was bigger! Chocolat Fetish is available until 31st Oct.
Also highly recommended: Invader Inside. A gimmicky looking tin that has SEVEN layers of different chocolates, popping candy and a moist, sponge cake hidden by mousse and creme. What a treat! You can buy the whole little tin for $15 and give it as a gift. The bronze little invader is edible too - a dark, bitter chocolate that leaves an echoing aroma of cocoa in your mouth. Don't worry, you'll sweeten it with the other melding layers and be totally entertained by the incessant popping of hidden popping candies in the plastic can. As always, so indulgent. This is part of @antoinette_sg's chocolate fetish menu that will last till October, so grab it soon! #chocolate #deathbychocolate
