The Food Store @ DoubleTree by Hilton


Salads, sandwiches and pastries are among the highlights at Doubletree by Hilton's bright, cheerful cafe (which is staffed by the most pleasant service team possible), but we zeroed in the scrumptious-looking desserts.


Vanilla mille-feuille. Tasted fresher than expected; the whole wheat layers were a nice touch, reminiscent of healthy cereal grain bars.


Chocolate St. Honore. Moist and dense, but unmemorable. If you're waiting for a chocolate cake renaissance, it's not happening anytime soon.


Coconut moelleux with coco mango cremeux. Fruity, but we're not fans of coconut or mango, so this wasn't our favorite (why did we order it? well, it sounded interesting!).


Amarenatta chocolate mousse with cherries. The sumptuous texture, swoon-worthy cocoa taste and perfectly plump cherries all combined for a luscious mousse.


Cookie cheese cake. Creamy but still reasonably light, with a subtle flavor that should please anyone who prefers desserts to be a little less sweet.

  10. Heh. That was the exact movie I was thinking of. And I didn't watch that either. Some films you can tell are bad a mile away... :P

  12. lfb: yes, i have a bad feeling about 'norwegian wood' :D
    leo: heheh, it was just the post-dinner desserts. but yeah, i can't eat desserts on their own :D

  13. Yes but that just means it's slow (N.Wood). I'm totally fine with slow-moving films. :D

  14. lfb: oooh ... if i paint my bedroom wall and film the paint drying, would u declare that 'an oscar-worthy masterpiece.' heheh :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Other bedroom walls maybe. Not YOUR bedroom or any other room in your apartment though, not the way you described to Devil & me. That'd be like another Chernobyl waiting to happen. :P

  16. lfb: i should use my phone camera to snap some photos of my home and MMS them to u. then every time your apartment starts to seem messy, u can look at my pics and breathe a sigh of relief :D
