Shop/Food Review

Ms Teatime Says:

Bustling with crowd at night, The Pier at Robertson is quite the "happening" place to be if you are looking to chill with some alcohol after work or on weekends. Being more a desserts than booze person myself, I was pleasantly surprised to find Laurent’s Café & Chocolate Bar nestled right within this assemblage.

Laurent’s Café & Chocolate Bar is part of the Bernard Laurent Chocolatier brand, four times recipient of Singapore Tatler’s Best Chocolates Award. If you haven’t heard of Singapore Tatler, it is a high society magazine that aims to show its (usually) wealthy readers the latest in luxury lifestyle in Singapore. It is also the Singapore counterpart to the original Tatler, a British Magazine on fashion and lifestyle which targets the upper class. With that background, I think we can roughly gauge what to expect from Laurent Bernard Chocolatier- high quality chocolates that don’t come cheap.

Apart from artisan chocolates in a box, Laurent's is also known for their Dark Chocolate Soufflé. Indeed, the egg-based chocolate dessert is impressive with a dramatic puffed up look and an incredibly fluffy texture. Taste-wise, it is intensely bitter due to the use of Valrhona Guanaja 70%, the most bitter chocolate in the world albeit 30 years ago. But because not everyone can appreciate heady bitterness in their dessert, I would recommend you Laurent’s Dark Chocolate Lava Cake instead. If you are one who loves both dark chocolate and salted caramel, you will adore this!
