Dazzling cafe



Location: 5 Stamford Road, #01-85 Capitol Piazza, 178906

Operating hours:

Mon - Sun:12:00 pm-10:00 pm

How to get there: It is situated near city hall mrt station. Just 5 minutes walk away.

It is quite popular in taiwan especially among the female for their awesome huge toast. Although I been to taiwan quite a few times, i did not visit it. Finally, it is in Singapore and decided to go down to try it.




When we reached the cafe around 12pm, there is a short queue outside waiting for the staff to allocate the customers to the seat. Thank god that we reached quite early and we saw a huge crowd start coming in after that. We are served ice water when we are seated down. This is like oasis in dessert especially under the hot weather.




Here is their main course menu




 

 

 
 


 
Their toast menu


Their drink menu

spicy seafood tom yam tomato spaghetti
Spicy seafood tomyam tomato spaghetti which is unique to dazzling cafe in Singapore. Personally, I don't really like tom yam taste because of overwhelming taste. However, tom yam taste is just well balanced in this dish. It also comes with generous portion of fresh seafood :)


Pulled Pork Benedict

It is made of shredded BBQ pulled pork with balsamic onion coupled with toasted brioche finished with soft poached eggs, hollandaise sauce and side salad. The toast is really crispy and shredded BBQ pulled pork is yummy. The essence of the dish is poached egg!! Looking at yellow and juicy egg yolk gushing out from the egg. 

 
Hazelnut Chocolate Honey Toaste

How can we come to dazzling cafe without trying their toast!!! Their toast portion is really huge and it can eaten like main course!! Each of their toast is really well decorated. Everyone is always busy taking photo of their beautiful toast.


The staff will help us to put aside the top layer of the toast and explain to us on how to eat the toast. 
This is how the inside of the toast looked like. It is like magical box with tiny little toast cubes inside.



Each of the toast cube has chocolate stuffed inside. Endless of surprise!! It is really crispy till every part of the toast. Really wondering how they make the toast so well. 

Overall, it is really quite nice experiencing dining here especially with the attentive and friendly staff. I really love the part that they served ice water when we are seated down and continuing to top up ice water without reminders. They also explain well on how to eat the beautiful and yummy toast. I am really dazzled by their toast!! Remember to go early if you want to avoid the long waiting time!1

Raffle mooncake 2015

It is a lantern festival in less than 2 weeks!!! Here to share my favorite moon cake from raffle hotel again :)
Packaging for 2015
Packaging for 2014
The packaging did not change much except the hotel has been given a white coat of paint. 

Snow-Skin Mooncake with Champagne Truffle & Ganache

This is my favorite mooncake which I never fail to get every year :) The texture skin is really soft and smooth. The best part is champagne truffle which just melt in the mouth giving a sweet pleasant taste. Loving every bit of it :)

Snow-Skin Earl Grey Tea and Chocolate Pearl Truffle Mooncake


Last year, they introduced snow skin tropical tango mooncake which is really sweet and fruity. They did not produce it this year which is kind of sad. However, they come with earl grey tea and chocolate pearl truffle mooncake. Milk chocolate truffle core is infused with earl grey tea which tastes quite refreshing and great. The sweetness level is not as high as champagne truffle & ganache so it would be good for those who do not like very sweet mooncake.

*Do take note that moon cake need to be store in refrigerator and do not leave it outside for too long as it would spoil the moon cake.
