Pierside @ One Fullerton
Under the same group as Marmalade Pantry and Toast, Pierside is located at One Fullerton overlooking Marina Bay Sands and Singapore Flyer. The atmosphere was odd with a resident deejay churning out house music while the crowd was clearly not there for the music. Not that I was bothered too much by it though.
Banana Creme Brulee with Caramel Tart-fine, Lemon Verbena and Mascarpone Icecream ($15)
Crazily fragrant, the banana essence infiltrated every mouthful. I have to add this interpretation of creme brulee complete with a crunchy pastry base was been entirely changed. Pierside did an awesome job infusing banana with creme brulee most complementarily. L-o-v-e-d it!
White Chocolate and Baileys Souffle with Irish Bailey's Icecream ($15)
White chocolate souffle had me at hello, how often to you meet the evil twin of dark chocolate and souffle together?
Pillowy soft and foamy souffle, so light like gossamer...a pity that Baileys were barely tasted. Same for the icecream which was rich and smooth but the same grouse, the alcohol was too subtle.
With marmalade pantry down for desserts, I'm game to replace it with Pierside. More promising ones on the menu include Apple Charlotte and Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta!
