Were you there on August 16?
Well, just about anywhere outdoors. Breezy with slightly overcast skies, it was perhaps the loveliest day of the year in Singapore.
Bypassing our usual route to PS Café, we spent a good couple of hours at the outdoor café of Regent Hotel’s SomethingToGo. Us, air-con devotees in an outdoor fan-less verandah! Whoa…
Regent’s signature Praline Feuillete - chocolate mousse and hazelnut praline – is such a crowd-pleaser. It was good but I’m going to risk public backlash and proclaim it, a little boring (don’t hate me!). But you know what, I’ll probably order this again if you want to share with me.
But what I really loved was the Japanese Cheese Pear slice – pear jelly crown, cheese mousse on a walnut and pistachio base. Fresh, creamy and nutty… it looked so vulnerable and delicate but every mouthful promptly satiated.
