Awfully Chocolate @ ION Orchard, Singapore

After lunch at Iggy's, we walked over to ION Orchard to walk off our lunch. We stumbled upon Awfully Chocolate after a bit of walking. This little cake shop sells all things chocolate, including their signature dark chocolate cake with dark chocolate fudge, the only cake they sold when they started their business. How bold, but it worked since they now have more than 15 franchises around Taiwan, China and Hong Kong. 


The menu is pretty small, but I wanted to try EVERYTHING they had to offer. But my stomach ain't big enough :P There are cupcakes, ice cream, Kahlua bars, chocolate banana cake and chocolate rum and cherry cake! Anyway two cakes/creations caught my attention,the white chocolate butterscotch block and cold poached chocolate.

Can I have whole block please?

Rich chocolate cupcakes


Since their outlet in ION Orchard does not have any seating, we bought the goodies that we wanted and hurried back to the hotel to eat it. But before that, some photos first of cos :P

The cold poached chocolate (S$5.60) is a soft rich dark cold chocolate invention created using their cold poaching methods, topped with a choice of cream. We went for the Kahlua cream (S$1.50) topping. It was indeed rich and indulgent, and although I am a huge chocolate fan, I would really struggle to finish this on my own.

After trying the white butterscotch block, I am in love with it. This is the perfect combination of the sweet chocolate and sweet-salty butterscotch with a dark chocolate swiss roll. Everything just went so well together. We went for a 100g slab (it is made as a huge block and they cut off as much as you want as it is charged per 100g), I found this to be very much lighter than the cold poached chocolate and I wouldn't mind eating more of this!

Verdict: Love the white chocolate butterscotch block... it's absolutely heavenly.

  10. I wonder how you can stuff so much desserts in your tummy and yet still looking great!!!! But the chocolate doesn't look VERY appealing.. ;P I prefer those kind of confectionery that's totally dark-brown(as you can easily judge that this is heavy-loaded with chocolate/cacao) ~ Yummm~~~
