The Brits think that not much can’t be solved with a good ‘ole cuppa tea. Quite right too! Team your brew with a patisserie-style cake and you can kiss your troubles goodbye. Les Delices in Chinatown, run by a Singaporean pastry chef and her sister, offers up a sweet selection of cakes and choux pastries to go with your quintessential cup of tea. A clear winner is the Heavenly Chocolate Dome; beautifully rich layering of Valrhora guanaja 70% chocolate mousse, hazelnut mousse, crispy praline and hazelnut dacquoise in a dark shelled chocolate dome. Chouxs come in varying (mild) flavours, from Matcha Green Tea to Early Grey, and there’s Berry Cheesecake with surprise popping candy in the base. Western and traditional Chinese tea pairings are suggested for each dessert. And we are thinking the healthier the tea (Raw Puerh) the more justified the cake, no?
