Dean & DeLuca, Far East Square

For some reason, Dean & DeLuca in Singapore just doesn't have the same allure as their international outlets. Their outlets here are quite cold and sterile, unlike the homely bustling feel felt elsewhere. Even on a weekday during lunch hour lunch, we found indoor table for 6 easily at the Far East Square branch. Anyway we made a pit-stop here for desserts to celebrate our intern's birthday. 

I love cheesecake, I love tarts so this Strawberry Cheese Tart was a hit in my book. Most strawberry tarts are filled with custard so this definitely felt denser and more decadent than others. The pistachios crumbs was a nice touch and the strawberries also helped out through the heaviness of the dessert.

For a lighter but just as lovely dessert, I would highly recommend the Lemon Meringue Pie. Perfectly sweet and tart, the meringue and lemon curd were wistfully light and refreshing.

Unfortunately, there was nothing to obsess over the dry and crumbly Dark Obsession Cake. I know have known when I saw it sitting woefully on the cake display. Oddly enough, this was the intern's favourite so our visit boded well for everyone.
