Great after a meal or for afternoon tea, this large mug consists of rich Vanhouten chocolate and well frothed steamed milk for just $7. Of course the cute cat art brought a smile to my face when I was presented with this. Other drink options include coffee, tea, mocktails and cocktails.
Chef Roy has done Onsen Tamago so well now he up its taste with the additional ingredients. The taste is definitely different and better. Try it when you're here.

Everybody who knows me, knows I don't eat durians. But this? This I demolished. Shocking, right? 😁
Torched table-side, Chef Deming's Durian Creme Brûlée, or more affectionately and colloquially known as #DurianCanBoleh, is a light custard pudding that incorporates "Mao Shan Wang" in a balanced way.
I like how its level of sweetness was carefully controlled, so most of it came from the crisp caramelised surface.
This was one of the two desserts that rounded off our multiple-course "The Quarters Experience" communal dinner ($68 nett per person). I recommend you have the other, which is the Kaya Bomb Profiteroles, first, before digging into this. So you can appreciate that properly before durian comes into the picture and overpowers your tastebuds.
Whatever your victory, celebrate it at VLV, a posh lounge and restaurant housed in a two-storey conservation building along Clarke Quay. Head to the 140-seater second floor, where its combination of lush interiors decorated with Chinese touches, impeccable service and eight-course set lunch ($98 for four pax) is set to win over any client of yours. You won't find many Chinese restaurants in Singapore offering eight courses for lunch at just $30 per person, so know that this is great bang for your buck! Out of the eight dishes we had, the pan fried carrot cake, sweet and sour Chilean seabass, and the braised noodles with enoki mushroom and bean sprout stood out. While they might sound like ordinary dishes that you can find on just about any other Chinese menu, these won us over with their flawless execution alongside the unique ambience.
Avg Price: $30 per person

Nonetheless, the rice remains fragrant and goes well with the soya sauce chicken which came with a lot of bones, but remains juicy on the meat and was not too dry. The soup given was rather plain-tasting though.
