Anyone who says you can’t have dessert for supper clearly hasn’t been proselytised to by this late-night Holland Village sweets bar. After seven great years in which young pastry star Janice Wong defied all industry expectations and racked up a number of accolades – most notably Asia’s Best Pastry Chef awarded by the San Pellegrino Asia Top 50, which she won two years in a row from 2013 to 2014 – her second-floor perch renews its energy with new interiors and an expanded menu of elaborate sweets. The updated look also marks Wong’s partnership with new backer, Manoj M Murjani – co-founder of TWG Tea Company. The old reclining loungers have been replaced with booth seating with colourful tables, painted with chocolate-inspired art, and concrete dining bar surfaces that give the restaurant an up-to-date industrialchic aesthetic.
Though the dessert options (from $15) read pretty much the same as before, the sweets bar has reworked the recipes and upped portion sizes. Also new are savouries like beef cheek croquettes ($15), takeaway snacks including churros ($5), a high tea set menu for two with champagne option ($48-$82) and night cap-appropriate cocktails ($18-$20) shaked up by American barman Kley Dhillon.
