Singapore 2011 - Desserts at Canele

Canele is a chain of cafes under the Les Amis F&B Group in Singapore. They now have 4 outlets throughout the island - Robertson Walk, Shaw Centre, Paragon Orchard Road and Raffles City. They started out specializing in cakes and desserts, but now have a full-fledged menu offering the usual cafe food. Helmed by Executive Pastry Chef Pang Kok Keong, they serve some of the best cakes and desserts in Singapore.

We visited the outlet in Raffles City, and had to wait more then an hour for a table. Though the basement food hall at Raffles City is huge, it was jam-packed with people. We got there around 7:00 p.m. and the desserts were almost sold out. Luckily we were smart enough to reserve what we wanted, or would have been disappointed by the time we were seated. Still I didn't get to taste their macaroons as they were completely sold out ! Their passion fruit macaroons are simply out of this world !

This was what we had. Chloe - a mousse cake with a chocolate shell.

St Marc - a layered gateaux with caramelized topping.


We also had a Nougatine sweet crepe - served with Nutella, caramel, nougatine ice cream and vanilla creme chantilly. If you have a sweet tooth - this is heaven !

Seafood pasta - the food here definitely play second fiddle to the desserts.
