Finding a dessert
place on a Sunday night is quite a task locally – either closed or the
website is not updated with its opening hours and this brought us on a
wildgoose chase for a dessert place to settle
our cake cravings. I love Tiong Bahru already – for its number of small
hole in wall stores and the array of choices actually yet the lanes are
confusing much. The Orange Thimble used to be a tailor and named such.
The Orange Thimble promise.
Ultimate old school.
Wait for the buzzer.
Buy some art whilst waiting? Sold as a café that also sells art – think
Shots on Ang Siang Hill.
Chocolate and Salted Caramel ($7.50)
Moist chocolate cake meets sticky salted caramel – I did not think too highly of this though.
Banana Almond and Cognac Pie ($7.50)
A new addition,
this was baked on a pastry pie base – the flaky sort without any trace
of butter. Almost too dry and bland. It is supposed to be a banana
almond cream filling with a cognac finish which I
could barely detect. I should have gone with their famous strawberry
shortcake or highly recommended cheesecake instead.
Seasalt caramel icecream ($3.50)
Not homemade and
definitely from Cloud9 if my tastebuds serve me right, served in vintage
bowls too…completely thrilled and sold. I have been a fan of Cloud9
icecreams for awhile now, particularly so for
their seasalt caramel so double happiness for me.
The café has quirky
spots that suits every diner – love such disharmony. Great place to
unwind yet the cakes do not measure up much.
