There was one thing that was the perfect pick me up... and what was that? Why a dessert tasting at the fairly new Blackflower Patisserie, thats what.
I had discovered its presence roughly about a few weeks ago and am I ever relieved to have stumbled upon such a place? Hell . Freaking. Yes. This place is probably so far, the closest to Adriano Zumbo's Patisserie in terms of complex layered desserts and textures. Oh and a quick warning, don't be surprised by the rather adventurous names, it seems to be more quirky and tongue-in-cheek than anything else.. unless if actually does provoke what its namesake is then errr . I can't remember the exact components of each dish but I do recall their risque names haha. I was alerted to this free dessert tasting through their Instagram and I immediately texted them to secure a place as well as several of my friends post haste demanding whether or not they were free so we could hit it up. The reason behind it was because they were testing desserts for their dine-in menu. I went with two other friends and once we were there, we were told we could order a free dessert each. The two of them allowed me full control of the menu as they were assured with the fact that I always pick good things .. HAHAHA errrr . If memory proves to be correct, there were 7 - 8 items on the menu , other than the ones we chose , there were a few that had similar elements, we avoided those and those that contained espresso and went for the more exotic sounding ones.. and we did not regret our decision at all.
If the rest of the desserts were of this calibre, they definitely have an extremely promising dine in menu. I hope this means that they will be opening later so we could come here after dinner rather than the reverse. Can not wait to come back and try the other desserts, I'm pretty sure my friends would be willing to as well since several expressed their angst at missing a chance at free dessert due to busy schedules LOL.
