33. Let’s Do Dessert aka. Sugar Hit ’13 – The Gallery Tea Lounge, Sheraton On The Park

A spontaneous Let’s Do Dessert at Sheraton on the Park at The Gallery Tea Lounge after my (also spontaneous) third visit to the Night Noodle Markets - They’re right across the street from each other.

Walk-in customers are accepted hence the spontaneity.

They should call this dessert a dark chocolate and hazelnut mousse rather than a ‘millefeuille’… There are three ‘layers’, which aren’t that well defined, and are made up of dark chocolate mousse, hazelnut praline and hazelnut mousse. The dark chocolate mousse has 70% cocoa so it was super bitter but the light hazelnut, almost cream-like mousse balances out the bitterness, making it bearable to eat. The problem was that there wasn’t enough of it. None of my friends or I actually finished the whole dessert because it was too rich… The pistachio biscuit and the hazelnut praline was really nice though – probably the only thing I liked about the dessert.

TL;DR? A hit and a miss for me. Maybe those who adore dark chocolate with high cocoa content might be able to appreciate this more than I did.
