Antoinette, Mandarin Gallery

Untitled

Mandarin Gallery is one of my favourite places to go to in Singapore because there’s Wild Honey, Ippudo, Jones the Grocer and Antoinette. It’s hard to ignore the pretty display of desserts at Antoinette – I couldn’t, and found myself seated at a cosy corner of the café with a cup of hot chocolate and their signature cake, the Antoinette (SGD9).

Pretty display

The Antoinette comprised earl grey milk chocolate mousse, dark chocolate earl grey crémeux and hazelnut feuilletine, topped with raspberry coulis in a gelatin pouch. A lovely balance of flavours and textures. The earl grey imparted a lavender aroma and slight bitter undertone to the mousse. I especially enjoyed the crumbly texture of the hazelnut feuilletine, for it complemented the creaminess of the mousse.

It took me 5 minutes to figure out how to eat the raspberry coulis. Ok fine, I didn’t figure it out. I saw how the ‘tai tai’ at the next table do it so I followed suit. #noob The coulis helped offset the richness of the Antoinette.

Vera bought me a box of macarons (SGD2.50 per piece) from Antoinette when we met up for lunch two days later. Thank you dear! They were lovely – one of the best I’ve tried.

Light, airy and softly chewy, my favourites were praline (hazelnut), vanilla cream with strawberry coulis and caramel. It’s best consumed on the spot, or within an hour of purchase.
