The Pierside Revisited @ One Fullerton
Possibly the last remaining of the original Marmalade Pantry Group that did not get a name makeover, I have yet to try the mains yet. Back at Pierside for desserts, by a strange twist of fate..if memory serves me correct the last visit rounded off with the same impression.
White Chocolate and Baileys Souffle ($15)
Irish Baileys Icecream
Less impressed with this, somehow. The rameskin was barely filled with the souffle, three quarts at best. Still light and baileys came and went without a trace.
The rest which I did not get to try but common consensus was portions were too small.
Banana Creme Brulee ($15)
Caramel Tarte Fine, Lemon Verbena and Mascarpone Icecream
Apple Charlotte ($14)
Pistachio and Raisins, Vanilla Bean Icecream
Service is terribly bad and curt. Cutlery switched with a nudge and barely informing. Very reluctant to take any menu clarifications and the bill was brought with much enthusiasm - they seemed to be happier to show us to the door than bothering with getting us to order more stuff. Nothing that can redeem Pierside from a strike off, desserts are not mindblowing, service stinks...next!
One Fullerton's view is always so gorgeously enticing.
